A software tester walks into a bar. 

Runs into a bar.

Crawls into a bar.

Dances into a bar.

Flies into a bar.

Jumps into a bar.

And orders:

a beer.

2 beers.

0 beers.

99999999 beers.

a lizard in a beer glass.

-1 beer.

"qwertyuiop" beers.

Testing complete.

A real customer walks into the bar and asks where the bathroom is.

The bar goes up in flames.

When I was young and still learning the ropes, there was just one type of guy: That Guy. The rule was "Don't be That Guy," and in theory, any guy who followed this rule faithfully knew where he stood.

That theory, however, turned out to be inadequate, even naïve. Nowadays, scores of new types of guy are identified every week.

But the rule has remained in place, leading to confusion and error, since no guy can keep track of all the different kinds of guy he's meant to don't be.

A paradigm shift is needed.

@victoria Oh whoops. I thought you were asking for RSS for some reason. Sorry about that.

Hey, WeTransfer, I’ve heard a lot of Silicon Valley bullshit in my time but “we must violate your privacy to save the trees” is a new one even for me.

Please, take a fucking bow.

From now on I'm going to read "gorg" literally, as in "Wow your dog is so gorg" or "What a gorg picture"
