“ceasefire ends” is a funny way of saying “IDF begins new batch of mass murder absent provocation following spree murder of 10k people”.

@TheConversationUS in all honesty, the amount of woodburning done in residential areas shows that reduction of air quality by gas stoves is not something people worry about. If they would, woodstoves would be illegal in residential areas. But here we are, coughing away due to the neighbours "cosy warmth".

if y’all could just stop being jewish and stop being muslim that would be a huge help right now, thanks

Pretending here the answer isn't "you had a 3x engineer and made then work like they were a 20x engineer and this burnt them out in like two years and now they're doing woodworking in a log cabin on the top of a mountain in Montana and if you mention computers to them, they'll shoot you in the face"

It seems every company I've worked at has a person who looms large in their legend.
Like, they're often the person who built the core systems, everything was originally their design, but they left recently and in their absence they've had to hire like 5 more people to try and take over all their responsibilities.

I think next time I'm gonna track down that person, find out where they moved to, and go work there instead

bro I literally own the machine

scenario 1: trump wins, trump becomes president again.

scenario 2: biden wins, trump supporters storm the capital again, this time with their rifles, and capital police are 10000% ready, and there is an *actual* insurrection, and battle (which the trumpites will lose, naturally), and all hell breaks loose.

both of these are bad. i don't know which is more bad, however. biden is also an old fool who is fucking everything up, just in orthogonal ways to how trump fucks everything up.

it occurs to me that yt-dlp+youtube.com is now better than napster ever was, even at its peak. there's more stuff on youtube than was ever on napster, and the average audio bitrate in mp3-equivalent is 160ish, which is more than the 128 that was most common on napster.
