Looking at the Monday-Friday tram schedule, I just realized it shows that tram usage here has a bimodal distribution, formed by two gaussian lobes centered at 8:00 and 17:30, and with a much narrower variance for the morning rush #NerdyMoments
My god the "Woman in lotus position" emoji is a perfect example of the Apple vs Google vs Microsoft design philosophies
Apple: maximum polish and detail
Google: it's functional. It's a woman in the lotus position. Period.
Microsoft: The woman is lacking a lot of detail, and she's not even in the correct pose
Sometimes I think programming hasn't advanced at all since I was 8 and I got my first computer. It's still a bunch of text in a file after all.
But then I remember how that text used to look like and how it looks now and hey, at least I don't want to gouge my eyeballs with a spoon anymore!
Also, qbasic vs rust. We _have_ advanced a bit
I'm building this bed for the kid.
It has 16 slats that support the mattress.
Each slat has 2 sides.
Each side has 2 holes.
The slat holes are mirrored on the frame.
16 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 2⁴ * 2³ = 2⁷ = 128
My programmer side is pretty amused by that.
My woodworker side is really tired from having to drill 128 individual holes 😭
One thing that surprises me is how Spain has many super savory yet simple dishes that haven't become well-known outside its borders.
One such dish is this: eggs, potatoes, Spanish ham strips and small peppers (these ones are Padrón peppers), fried with some garlic in olive oil, add some salt, and you're done. Not exactly healthy, but tasty and nice.
This was our dinner today and I am fuuuuull😊
Nudity, Swedish children's book
Even after 3 years living here, Sweden still surprises me. This is a children's book that's sold in the biggest bookstores in Sweden right now. The title is literally "Naked butts" (or maybe, "only butts"?
This seems to be the author's blog: https://blogg.mama.nu/annikaleone/2019/04/12/proffssminkad-ny-outfit-bokrelease/
