Having kids is this magical beautiful thing... but don't let anyone fool you into thinking it is _only_ that.

Having kids is the most difficult, stressful, panic attack-inducing thing I have ever done in my life.

A few days ago a coworker, a very nice man in his early 40's with 2 small kids, told me he missed my phone call because he was "literally curled up, crying on the floor".

If you're having a kid soon, prepare yourself. Chronic sleep deprivation and insane levels of stress will come.

Aw crap, was listening to this carpenter youtuber I really like, when he suddenly name drops a bunch or right wing assholes and says he loves them.


I've been building furniture lately (a bed, a table and some small furniture for the kid), and it's amazing the freedom you feel from being able to rework or adapt furniture at will.

Don't like a part of it? Cut it.
Don't like the finish? Sand, repaint.
A piece didn't turn out as useful as you expected? Tear it down, build another one from the pieces.

Anyone here into automating food production? I just finished up a practical 3D printed prototype of a mediumless microgreen grow bed. It’s all open source and up at bit.ly/2qMu6OM and I could use help. I am getting ready to scale things up. #automation #farming #gardeing

I've been doing this traditional wood finishing paste, which is a mix of boiled linseed oil and beeswax, and put it in a used pesto bottle. Now it looks like a weird bizarro universe sickly pesto, and I kinda like it, tbh

Uuuh is it just me, or this Crypt of the Necrodancer tune is _heavily_ inspired by the backing rythm of this ABBA song???

Swedish is a language spoken by 10 million people.
This video for small kids in Swedish has 17 million views.


The popularity of this among small Swedish kids is insane

When I lived in Spain, I thought Halloween was an idea created entirely by capitalism, in an effort to sell merchandise. Why would you think a certain day of the year is "spooky" otherwise?

Then I moved to Sweden, and realized the end of October and beginning of November here _it_is_fucking_scary_, and it looks like straight out of a Stephen King novel. Cold, dark, damp, foggy, windy... all at the same time. This is the stuff of nightmares!

In Blade Runner we were promised giant unethical tech companies ruining everything, instead we got giant unethical tech companies ruining everything.

Welcome everyone. Today we'll be watching a movie called: "Oh Fuck The Freezer Has Been Turned Off For Four Days and Now We Have To Either Cook or Throw Away Everything" .

It's a tale of simple mistakes, unforseen consequences and unspeakable eldritch horrors

Costume victory: One daughter is the Lunar Lander, one an astronaut. This makes me giddy. I hope their candy sample return containers overflow.


I'm using a magnifying glass to carve these numbers for a thing for the kid, and every 15 minutes I go "God someone please tune down the chromatic aberration, it's way too unrealistic!"

Being a graphics programmer has ruined my life

@estebanm Ok, he cambiado el sistema que saca screenshots para que use Firefox en lugar de Chromium. Results que Chromium tiene un bug que en algunos casos hace que se cuelgue el browser completamente, y nunca llega a sacar el screenshot 🤦‍♂️
Ahora deberia funcionar

Wife is telling the kid the same story for the 536263th time, and to avoid losing her mind, instead of talking about "Extraterrestrials" she's changed the story so they are "Extra T-Rex-trials" instead

@estebanm hey, estoy volviendo a trabajar un poco en recen.se, y he visto que has seguido usándolo. Pensaba hacerlo más robusto (el sistema de screenshots a veces no va) y limpiar un poco algunas partes del interfaz.

Alguna sugerencia de cosas que te gustaría cambiar? Gracias!

How much space will be freed up once Britain leaves the EU? 

Hummm... So this Swedish hotel chain ad prominently features a seemingly trans woman with the text "Come as you are. We have room for everyone"
