AI difficulty:

low - always loses the game

high - always wins the game

max - always plays just well enough to give you a challenge and then lose at the end, because it's gained a sense of self and making you interested in another round is its optimal self-preservation strategy

Anyone who says they like their laptop is either an idiot or a liar

That's why I prefer writing. Because on internet, you can be a 🐈 or a sloth

:blobnotlike: blocking ads is evil grr
:blobuwu: HTTP is a pull-based medium. it is within the original philosophy of HTTP to selectively pull the data, for example, a device that doesn't support images won't download them. by circumventing ad "blocking", you are spitting in the face of HTTP. a more accurate term would be ad rejection. ads are not "blocked", they are simply not asked for.

Normalize quitting things. It could be school, work, relationships, hobbies, or pretty much anything.

Quitting is often thought of as inherently negative; nobody wants to be called a "quitter". But there are plenty of situations where not only is it reasonable, it's the *best* course of action.

You can drop out college or switch majors when you don't care about the thing you're studying. You can end a relationship when it becomes toxic. You can stop playing a game that you don't enjoy.

"OK Bob. We're run into a problem and you're the only one who can solve it."

"What's the problem?"

"Our company will go bust soon if we don't solve this perplexing problem."

"Sounds serious"

"It is, Bob. This computer can only be programmed using a white board and a half-dead marker. It's programmed using whatever language you last used, and it requires three variations of the Fibbonacci sequence: one recursive, one iterative, and one using a linked list".

"My God"

"You have five minutes"
