🔥 Two Git commands that have made me a better developer:

– `git commit` without the `-m` option
– `git add -p`

The former forces me to write a good multi-line commit message, and the latter allows to stage changes partially in an interactive mode.

JavaScript horrors 

Did you ever notice that JavaScript lets you use floating-point values as array indexes, and it'll store them and retrieve them?

They don't get iterated over, though, because that's actually setting a property named for the string conversion of the floating-point number.

> a = [1,2,3]
[ 1, 2, 3 ]
> a[2.5] = "ba"
'ba'
> a
[ 1, 2, 3, '2.5': 'ba' ]
> a[2.5]
'ba'
> a.forEach((x) => console.log(x));

but i am delighted to announce

somebody's found the comics about mask-wearing

and They're Good, Folks

Snap dragons are very pretty, but when the flowers die, their seed pods turn into creepy little skulls! 💀💀💀

The admin don’t like it

Lock the taskbar, lock the taskbar

You can freeze the American Gods intro scene to any frame and screenshot a decent looking desktop wallpaper.

The same applies to the actual show at the best of times.
