So, it turns out that conda can't recreate an environment created on another OS github.com/datitran/object_det

That's useful (not)

MySpace was good: dark background caring about our retinas, a lot of personalization options and by being based mostly about text, gifs and so on it was truly open.

Instagram on the contrary is classist: you need a decent camera, constantly interesting things to share, etc.

So we moved from an environment where you needed hard skills to stand out (writing, visual taste, etc) to another that rewards only one skill: "looking good".

And then we're surprised for IQ lowering in the western world

Since I don't enjoy small talk from time to time when something about weather pops up I start talking about forecasting and chaos theory, just for fun.

I hate fliers, I don't like to increase garbage and paper usage, but I also want people distributing them to get paid (they're likely to not get paid if they don't distribute all of them).

But if I get it I'm sending a wrong message to companies: people are still taking fliers, so they're working.

This is one of those conundrums that can be solved only by a regulatory body. Good luck to us

HR: "We're sending too many emails!!! Our time is precious!..."
Me: "Woah, that's nice, I didn't expect that!"
HR: "Instead of sending an email, meet in person or use Teams!"
Me: "Ok, now everything sounds as expected" 馃う鈥嶁檪锔

Me: "Can I be admin on my workstation?"
IT: "No"
Me: "Can I access it remotely?"
IT: "No"
Me: "So, I guess, no WSL then?"
IT: "Oh, sure, you can have that!"

I just found out in the worst possible way that pandas-profiling mutates column names without telling you!

This is SO bad!
