A post on Nextdoor read: "Prayer. It changes everything."

I'd like to offer the following counterpoint: No, it does not.

There exists a Universe, identical to ours but made entirely out of antimatter, where scientists wonder why they and the entire world around them is made out of matter and not antimatter.

Confirmed: the FSF's sole purpose is to serve as RMS's amplifier.


Taken as is, this is a complete slap to anyone who directed the FSF in RMS's absence. If the organization is so rudderless as to be cast adrift without one man then the bus-factor of that organization is too great for long-term survival.

The FSF needs to consider what their mission is, because right now their mission is in jeopardy and the folks willing to carry water for the FSF are vanishing.

Is there a succinct one-word term for people who knowingly and indifferently participate in behavior that spreads covid? I use "sociopath" and that's a good descriptor but not specific enough to be clear without explanation needed.

I had weird dreams last night. I was trapped inside someone's home. I could leave, but when I did the neighbors would immediately try to chase me down to kill me, so I always had to flee back inside again.

I may have overindulged in Easter feasting yesterday 🤣

I'm not entirely sure what some websites are thinking by requiring entering in their new password only once when changing passwords.

Passwords are hidden fields, or at least they should be. That means it's easy for a typo to sneak in there. Having people enter the password twice ensures people got it right without forcing them to reset it again five minutes later in case they messed up without realizing it.

I just ordered a brand new replacement toilet seat cover online. New, of course.

I just heard the phrase "Super Big Gulp of diet soda" used unironically in a sentence and now I have questions
