Today 3PM at work it dawned on me that it is only Monday 3PM....

Mastodon, the only place I feel something might be missing with me because of being simply-a-simple-man, after reading 15 mins of toots :) Congrats !

@deshipu maybe things do not fit 100%, or maybe it is not a future forecast either but isnt there a thing we can call "human condition" mentioned in some old books? maybe some of it mentioned in the old testament, or the odeipus rex, or the hamlet? Or maybe I completely misunderstood your toot.

@deshipu I dont, but it would also protect against butt dialing

@deshipu

sure, mine is an outsiders challenge based on polish names I see around in NY

@deshipu

wow surprising! It must be a special day to sprinkle and waste so many vowels in a single word for Polish to name something herbata :)

@deshipu

from south is simply my guess, herb-a-ta. what language is that?

Why does half of the world call tea something like TEE and the other half use a word like CHAI?

It all depends which route was used to originally import tea. In Chinese the one symbol for tea 茶 is pronounced differently, up north as "cha" and coastal/south region as "te".

If the Portuguese introduced tea to your country you probably call it as tea and if it arrived by land something like cha.

I have been away from mastodon and techy stuff, I miss it. I hope I can reconnect

@vonhaller indeed, all I get is subscribe and pay to read.

Apparently someone managed to call Amazon's support, tricked and convinced them into changing my account's email, ordered something, and eventually proceeded to delete my entire account.

Now Amazon's support refuses to help me for data protection reasons 😂

Looks like it's enough to know someone's address to hijack their #amazon account.

I read this headline it did not make sense, I read the article I am still in shock this can happen.

@GluedToTheScreen hocus pocus and smoke screen cheap tricks have always attracted me 😉

Exactly when was it observed and written that this sentence consists of two hundred forty-six characters in total: sixty-six vowels, one hundred thirty-three consonants, thirty-five spaces, one colon, six commas, four dashes, and a question mark?

@tommasz MS did a good job in extending Atom for code dev and made it a nice multiplatform MS Code tool, the added value was large due to focus and support from MS (not sure how they plan to monetize it), there can be added value, but what is the plan after that? will they push adds etc? unbelievable everyone wants to make money from ads, what a society we have...

"God created man in his own image" is one of the biggest give away of where religion originates.

Everything we create heavily uses perspective and concepts from our own human experience so as to make them meaningful to man kind.

If you are using , I highly recommend to turn off *any* automatic updates for stability and to avoid wasting time.

@caffeine

I am thinking, kids with no teenage angst would sell to most parents, there is money in this designer baby business :)

This morning's musings:

We have a society where individuals spend considerable time on making videos on box openings for commercial goods. And the rest watch it. As if that is it, there is not much more else to life.

It is strange how easily we can assume our given roles in any game and be happy playing it. Imagine if we were not able to accept meaningless things as normal, we would all have hard time with our existence.
