"popular myth is that people who are Very Computer have computers that work. nothing could be further from the truth. the Very Computer are capable of generating much more novel and fascinating ways to make computers not fucking work and exercise this capability wantonly"

I wish the new David Attenborough documentaries said one of the quiet parts out loud. He hints at it but someone needs to say real loud (pretend these are in caps) "dinosaurs weren't all cold blooded. you can't power a t-rex with sunlight".

"It should only take a few brain cells to see that the fan is obviously mounted correctly from the factory. Even further application of minimal intelligence leads anyone with at least a 2 digit IQ to see that maybe things are built the way they are because thats the way they are intended!"

oh right. mail order candy comes melted this time of year.

The acoustic version of Nirvana's "About A Girl" is on the restaurant's cheap "oldies" satellite radio feed. Before this was The Ramones. I may never leave the house again.

One of my deep body hatreds is that, if I let my body wake up naturally on its own, I've overslept and will feel miserable all day. But if I guess wrong on wake up time, I've underslept and will feel miserable all day.

Closer looks at the wiring and evidence of why no one should let me near a hot glue gun

New wireless, battery powered, choc Corne keyboard. This build is based on @kitchen ‘s design.

I messed up on the left one a bit because my wires are too thick to be jammed through the existing holes and I didn’t noticed until I’d already cut the wires. When I built the right hand side, I ran the wires up the front and underneath. This is how I’ll build them going forward.

Normally this would be grounds for a quality complaint and a minor refund from jlcpcb. But I kinda like it.

This is how I got all the local realtors to stop cold calling me about selling the house. I told them yeah, totally interested to selling to someone who just cold called a cell phone address they got from a marketing company. They had to bring $5mil in unmarked nonsequential 20s in duffle bags and give me two months to find a new place and move. Did that a few times and suddenly they all stopped calling.

I keep getting email asking me to meet up to sell my mercedes benz. I'm tempted every time to respond that if they bring the cash in a duffle bag, I'll give them a pick up location for the non-existent benz I've never owned and never will.

I'm going to be chuckling, for a long time, about this whole thing of the Apple lawyer responsible for preventing insider trading pleading guilty to ... insider trading.

One of the other great reasons to walk away from Github is to destroy the tyranny of the pull request.

One of these days I'm going to start a fire and see if you all who promised to bring tinder actually show. Same with building guillotines. If there are suddenly guillotines available at discount prices in the DC suburbs, will you actually show up?
