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

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.
