I'm not sure if I'm disappointed or proud that I haven't seen a single "Move Fast and Break Things" meme on mastodon all day.

Learning that Facebook literally flushed every BGP route from their peers...

Dear western Latin-Germanic languages of Earth; Can we please have a come-to-Jesus conversation about the pronunciation of the double-L sound?

I have too many Romance languages in my head arguing with my native English and with each other over this and I've lost the ability to ask for extra tortillas as I sit out under the bougainvillea with a roll of pastilles in my pocket.

Hi all: this account is in hybernation after #Gab functionally left the #fediverse, but wanted to wake it from slumber to note that all your work got noticed in a new ISD Report.

"There is precedent for open source communities to push back against those who seek to use their tools to promote hate speech. One such case is Mastodon, an open source social media community which has waged a long-running war of attrition against an influx of far-right users from Gab – a war which, as of December 2020, they appear to have won."

"The Babylon project was our last, best hope for peace. .. It failed. .. But in the year of the Shadow war it became something greater: our last, best hope .. for victory. The year is 2260, the place: Babylon 5."

Just discovered "I am bread" and decided to see what it was about by watching youtube vids. I'm literally crying right now.

Me: Trying to figure out who "that guy" is while watching something else...

Imdb: He's also in "Super Mario Bros: The Movie (2022)" imdb.com/title/tt7634766/

Me: W....wat? WAT?!?!?! Chris Pratt as Mario, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad?!

Also me: Cautiously hopeful, but also...

The Simpsons, being "timeless", allows its characters to slide along the timeline. Once upon a time, Homer and Marge met in highschool in the 70s.

Today I watched an episode where Marge is running her school's senior class musical during Y2K, and I've never felt so old.

Current mood: Arguing the position that Elon Musk is more African American than MalcomX.

Surely I'm not the first to consider this... Was Henry VIII's break from the Catholic church just an early form of Brexit?

Declaration of sovereignty against European interference?

uspol, texas anti-freedom law 

I think we're looking at this Texas law entirely the wrong way.

I guarantee that at LEAST two TX GOP legislators will end up pushing a mistress into an abortion before this law gets struck down. Let's sue them!

Me: Half a day of wrestling with someone else's finicky API. Fuck it. I'm out.

Also me: 5 minutes of scripting up a web scraper. There, done.

I work with at least one person who uses the term "webinar" unironically.

Help.

Okay, here's the situation,
my wife went away on a week's vacation,
aaaand she took the keys to the brand new car.
It's half mine... mmmm well, of course yeah.
I'd just take it for a little spin, but I'm drunk tonight and duh it's not here (again).
I'll just crawl into my bed covers,
maybe I shouldn't... yeah, of course I should.

Also, they've done a musical episode, so all is forgiven.

In fairness though, Dennis Haysbert was a good choice for the part.
