Just enjoyed a delicious bag of ghost shaped potato chips from Poland!

This does now make me realize I have no USB-C extender cable, which would have let me cut one adapter from this chain

I'm lightly amazed my bag of random adapters had what it took to put together this Rube Goldberg chain to convince myself that my unresponsive Fitbit is actually drawing current in its charging cradle: Fitbit Charger ➡ A-to-C ➡ Current Meter ➡ C-to-A ➡ A-extender ➡ Wall

I was unaware that Hanukkah Gelt came in higher denominations


There are two wolves inside of you:
