Her: Why would people go on this reality show?

Me: $25k... that's half a year's wages for the average American.

Her: But the odds they'll win is so low!

Me: $20million

Her: ...

Me: That's what Californians spend on lottery tickets every week.

Her: Ah... hrmmm... point.

@hippiegunnut I'll be honest, they kinda grew on me.

Dog liked 'em too (counter surfed 'em in the night).

Result somewhere along the lines of...

Tongue: What lovely cookies

Nose: What a lovely tandoori chicken

Brain: WAT?!

@paulgatling Nah, just a super basic plain cookie recipe with a little nutmeg in to lend it some holiday nostalgia.

Stick of butter, 1.5c mix of equal parts white and brown sugar, 1 egg, 1/2 tsp vanilla. Then muffin mix that with a heaping cup of flour, 1/2 tsp each of baking soda, kosher salt, and and nutmeg.

Huh... so... pro-tip: Ground Nutmeg and Ground Cumin look very similar at a glance, especially whilst not wearing glasses.

Related: I'm very curious how these cookies will turn out...

Walking dog with the Mrs...

Her: Woah, all the leaves are brown!

Me: And the sky is gray... πŸ˜‰

Her: πŸ˜’

Me: 😁

Her: 😑

Me: 🎢 I WENT FOR A WALK, ON A WINTER'S DAAAAAAY!

Her: It's autumn.

Me: πŸ€” You win this time, Gadget.

@brion This is the music video I didn't know I needed in my life.

Rewatching "The Social Network" for the first time since actually working at the death star.

I'd forgotten how poorly they presented Zuck. I don't mean "in a bad light" poorly, just inaccurately.

He's given Sorkin's trademarked rapid intelligent speech and... like... that's not how he talks AT ALL.

I'm not saying he's an idiot, his intelligence level is... competent, but he really doesn't fit the Sorkin archetype.

God. Amateur Radio nerds are just... the worst at documenting their designs. The absolute worst.

@Lofenyy enterprise what? enterprise chrome? Is that a thing?

I did some googling for "how do I hide source" and there does seem to be a worrying trend of just disabling right click (which doesn't really block view source by other means, but it does improve user frustration)

@Lofenyy Disabel view source??? The eff?! Who looks at at open system like the web and thinks "We need to make this harder for well intentioned people to examine while not slowing down bad actors in the slightest." ?

@brand I have seen enough super-gross trash yacht parties to believe this 100% happens IRL somewhere.

subtoot, techbros, name-calling 

@rysiek Dudes using reductive labels find being referred to with a reductive label unpleasant? I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.

@mjorgensen My career went in reverse to what you'd expect. In my early 20s I had *at least* one office. When I worked for the US Courts, I actually had three private offices (in various buildings across northern California). By the time I was 30 I was a cube farmer, then eventually just lived in an open plan wasteland. It really feels like I did that backwards.
