Of course I thought of this warning about attempting to parse HTML using regular expressions, which I commend as worth a few moments of your time even if you do not know what those things are

yever think about how there are probably chemists, paid by building material and art supply companies, who have spent immense amounts of their lives watching, very intently, paint dry?

Accidentally took ibuprofane and I can't fucking stop swearing

discussion of dick pics 

dude: [dick pic]
dude: hi
me: not impressed. you can do better
dude: what do you mean?
me: it's an awkward angle, doesn't really give me a sense of scale. not sure about the lighting either. it's like there's no thought in the composition.

doesn't really tell the viewer a story, it's just like "dude grabbing his junk" okay? boring.

If you call off sick you are not leaving your co-workers short-handed.

Your boss did that.

They refused to hire enough employees.
Didn't make plans to cover sick workers' shifts.
Didn't include your human needs in their calculations.

It's not your fault. You deserve sick days.

im sorry in being a comedy nerd here 

@triz Ive heard jokes described as a release of tension. Something unexpected happened but its all okay!

and if you're in an unsafe enviroment, that tension is never going to be released. its why an 'offensive' joke from someone you trust can be funny because you know there is no malice behind the pun. But even a milder 'joke' from someone you suspect believes what they're saying... thats not going to be funny.

Whenever I try to get people to understand where they *actually* are in the class war, the reminder that "you are *always* three very bad months away from being homeless, but *never* three very good months away from being a millionaire", can be clarifying. twitter.com/stevesilberman/sta

Ich war $HEUTE Jahre alt, als mir klar wurde, dass “Kellerspeicher” das Wort “Speicher” enthält, was ja ein Dachboden ist, der für Lagerung benutzt wird.

Also praktisch Kellerdachboden.

I love Assassin's Creed Odyssey so much.

It's such a satisfying and fun experience. The tasks, locations, characters.

It's all just top notch work. I'm going to be playing this one for a long time.

@breakthesystem Now I'd rather it be under nobody's control...

... but you're one of the few I'd trust with it.
