I often use my phone to turn off lights in my room. The light switch is just few centimetres too far to comfortably reach out of bed but I can flip it by hitting it with the phone.

Fanfic I want to read: Greek epics crossover to sci-fi & fantasty.
A sci-fi story where Achilles is rescued by a time traveller just after he's shot in the heel. She pulls him forward to the 22nd century for a job that could only be solved by the greatest warrior in human history.
love too have eighteen people swarm into the house, hijack the wifi, RUN A FUCKING BITCOIN MINING PROGRAM ON THEIR LAPTOP, get their mewling shits of children set up with youtube videos to keep them occupied, and then complain that our internet is slow

important long-ish quote about advertising Show more
"People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are The Advertisers and they are laughing at you.
You, however, are forbidden to touch them. Trademarks, intellectual property rights and copyright law mean advertisers can say what they like wherever they like with total impunity.
Fuck that. Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It’s yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head.
You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don’t owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission, don’t even start asking for theirs."
