It is your responsibility for bringing an interpreter with you, which I'm sure is an undue burden on some, and could be the entire reason they never become a citizen. If anyone knows interpreter resources I can share, please pass them along!

As the * in the first tweet indicated there are some exceptions, BUT, only to the English language portion.

If you are 50+ and have lived in the US for 20+ years, or 55/15+, you are exempt.

You MUST still take the civics exam, but may do so in your natural language. HOWEVER:

The 100 questions/answers for the current US Citizenship Civics exam are here: uscis.gov/sites/default/files/

Feel free to quiz me, but for fun, find and take a practice quiz yourself! (e.g. this app: apps.apple.com/us/app/uscis-ci and see if you can best my Question Challenge high of 136 πŸ˜„)

2. Pass a Civics test. 100 known questions (though some are temporaneous, e.g. names of currently officials), you are asked ten at random and must get six right. It is NOT multiple choice β€” answers are given verbally which is how your spoken English is reviewed.

For those who don't know, every* person who becomes a citizen must:

1. Pass an English language test (reading, writing, and speaking!) β€” so for all those that say "learn English", we must, of we aren't speaking it, that's a choice, STFU.

Y'all… I got my citizenship interview/exam appointment letter! First week of January, in Portland. Time to hit the books! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

If you were going to test out a 4K HDR10 projection system with a 100" screen, what movie would you pick?

Why does my computer try to auto-complete β€œthought” as β€œthoughtcrimes”? How very dystopian :|

Feel free to ask me anything if you're curious about what being RM entails.

Oh, and upgrade to a newer version, for goodness sake! There are no more security fixes for anything below 7.2 (and that only for one more year!)

Well… that's it. 7.1 is now EOL. It's hard to believe it has already been three years. Being RM has been a honor, but really, the kudos belongs to my co-RM @krakjoe@twitter.com and also the other RMs for stepping in when life got too busy. If you are interested in being RM: do it! ❀️

Me driving on a regular day: WHERE DID YOU LEARN HOW TO DRIVE?! GET OFF MY ROAD! EAT A BAG OF SHIT ASSHOLE!

Me driving at the holidays: WHERE DID YOU LEARN HOW TO DRIVE?! GET OFF MY ROAD! EAT A BAG OF SHIT ASSHOLE! AND HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Interested in making developers lives easier?

Curious about Internal Developer Relations?

Come work with me at @lyft@twitter.com! My DMs are open and I'm happy to chat :)

Is there some magical way to list out meetings I haven’t accepted yet...Β so I can do so? I need to see a meeting at the proposed time in my calendar before I can know if it’s good to accept or not. :|

Have you ever been on a train engrossed in your phone and looked up only to be convinced you're now traveling in the wrong direction? That.

Power went out and my phone was at 9% but thanks to USB-C, I'm charging it off an iPad Pro that has 95% charge. USB-C is the future.

23 years is a long time. On this day 23 years ago my first wife passed away. She believed that you are never truly gone while your name is remembered, so: Susan Parham Shafik, Sefat Aker, you are missed by many.

I can’t help but feel that these 2009 vs 2019 selfie tweets are being harvested for ML.

β€œAI PROVES THAT MORE TIME ON TWITTER MAKES YOU AGE FASTER!”

β€œPEOPLE WITH PRONOUNS IN THEIR TWITTER PROFILE AGE SLOWER THAN THOSE WITHOUT”

β€œTHIS ONE WEIRD TWITTER/FB TRICK WILL SLOW AGING!”

Some observations about :

1. Of course *that* movie isn't on there
2. But neither is Muppets take Manhattan, what's that about?
3. The entire X-Men series from the 90s *is * on there and I am here for it. I grew up to this.

What else have y'all found/missed?!

I'm surprised that the only comments I'm seeing about the new MacBook Pro are about the escape key… did y'all miss it went back to a scissor mechanism and dropped the butterfly? And usable arrow keys.

Oh, and 64GB RAM.
