After three years of being a dad, I can only say The Oatmeal absolutely nailed this one

Ever wanted to do SQL injection into a Google product? Apparently the secret word is... "pumice"

Latest trick of pharmaceuticals: exploiting Unix access rights to cure skin rashes in babies.

AMD is diversifying, I see...

Someone sent this to the CI stability slack channel at work, and I'm dying 😄

It's interesting when even the recruiter admits the company is a piece of shit 🤔

At a museum with the kid. There's a videogames exhibit, a humanoid robots exhibit, a playground... all the kids here are running around having fun.

And yet my kid would rather be here.
