good morning, I just love Monday mornings because I get to catch up on all my emailsssssss

Good morning, can anyone confirm that shrink-wrapped bread is unique to America? Why do this? [cw food]

good morning, I found this guide to using `tar` very helpful [cw screaming Arnold Schwarzenegger face]

good morning to the profound absurdity and existential horror I found on my way out the door of my apartment building this morning [cw ec]

good morning. props to Java developers for having such a good sense of humour about their, quite frankly, horrifying language

good morning, I got an easter care package from my family back in Canada, check out its customs declaration label [cw food]

good afternoon, here’s a photo I took while diagnosing buzzing in my acoustic guitar

good morning, yesterday I found a new route to walk home from work and it has a cool view of a bridge. gonna return to take more photos later.

good morning to everyone except my right speaker, which refuses to stop buzzing. I think the driver is blown.

good morning, remember that time I got to feed a baby kangaroo? 🦘😍

good morning, why is the "trouble bell" so small? you'd think "trouble" would be the biggest, yeah?

good morning, I went to this Beach House concert a few weeks ago and it was amazing

good morning to all the Americans who insist on using customary units in lieu of the (far better) metric system

I see you, and I know you're not ready, and we'll all be waiting for you when you are❀️

but if you decided to come at me with this "fahrenheit is actually better for everyday use" bullshit, I *will* block you

Trying hard to fit in.

But also, refusing to learn Fahrenheit.

folks, can I get a "good morning" for my spiky friend here? they've got a Flappy Royale cosplay and they are looking SHARP.

good morning, I performed last night at my workplace's annual art show and it went really well! I think. I haven't listened to the recording yet πŸ™ˆ

@ashfurrow Try this one:

Base 6 is the best counting base, so the superior approach would be to create a new set of units based on the same principles as the metric system, but optimised for heximal, and then to use those.

@OTheB seems like base6 is further from what humans use than base10, but to each their own I guess Β―\_(ツ)_/Β―

@ashfurrow Base 6 is great. Has lots of factors, doesn't suffer from the nasty recurring decimals that dozenal does, and every prime number above 3 ends with either a 1 or a 5, which is a nice pattern.

It's also barely less dense than decimal, so you won't end up with huge long numbers.

Something to think about if you ever find yourself thinking "hmm, I really want to learn a new counting base, but I'm not sure which" :)

@ashfurrow Can't actually think of one reason nor a single instance where or why fahrenheit would be better.

@ashfurrow It's not even a good argument. You can't feel a couple degrees F but you probably can feel a couple degrees C.

@ashfurrow It's only good for a couple very specific things. 🀷

@ashfurrow of course not! Same for Celsius. Kelvin is The True Way to measure temperature.

@ashfurrow millions of physicists can't be wrong! πŸ˜‰

@ashfurrow πŸ•―οΈ for those of us in the US who want the Metric system and will never get it

@ashfurrow yes! This is a step in the right direction. Us Brits just need to get you guys to start adding the letter β€˜u’ back in to words like β€˜colour’. Final step is to replace β€˜z’ with β€˜s’, like β€˜categorise’. 😁

@ashfurrow YES! So much yes! As someone who works for a large American company, I’m faced with this daily! 🀣🀣🀣

@kev the only benefit is that the alphabet song rhymes better in American English, but it’s just not worth it!

@ashfurrow I really wish it would be switched. Sadly some people think that metric is a scam.

@ashfurrow But see, it works: they get (slightly) more space. 2" = 5.08cm. Those funny measures fool you…

@IzzyOnDroid well this _is_ just a unit test πŸ˜‰ there’s no calculation here, just picking between one of two strings from the API.

@ashfurrow So no comparison, OK. Still, I always wonder how they convert between inches, yards and miles in their heads – or summing up multiple stages of a route. There must be a trick (/me asks the search engine) – uhm? "1760 yards is a mile because there are 3 feet in a yard and 5280 is the important figure here." OK, I'm lost…

@mdhughes aye, but F is mostly only used in conversation. Siri, my AC, my devices are all set to Β°C.

@ashfurrow Don't worry americans are just a little bit... metrically challenged.

@ashfurrow It’s the devils unit

Who the hell cares when salty ice water freezes anyway

@ashfurrow We were taught Fahrenheit at my school. Also learned rods/poles, chains and acres. Strangely enough, I have had no use for any of them since.

@ashfurrow At least we Americans have a consensus about what to call the scale, none of this Celsius vs Centigrade crap.. Besides, if you ask a librarian where to find "Celsius 233", they just call Security.

@muchtodo hey so it’s 80Β°F today so does that mean it’s 80% hot? What if it’s 110Β°, is it 110% hot? I’m just not smart enough for Fahrenheit!

@ashfurrow You should not worry bout polen. Don't forget it's just nature bukkake.

@alma_de_cantaro the worst part is that this statement is literally, scientifically accurate 😭
