The most lingering comment I ever heard someone make
about Millennials was an older man I was talking to
about the way we think about finances—when he dreamed
about being a millionaire as a young man, he talked about
yachts and mansions and trips to the Bahamas; when I
did, I talked about living debt-free and being able to buy
dinner out without looking at my monthly budget. He
heard me out, took me seriously.
And at the end of it all, he nodded and looked at me and
asked, “Do you know who you remind me of?”
And I said no, no I didn’t, and he nodded some more.
“My mother. She grew up just before the Depression hit,
and she saw people lose everything left and right. And
whenever she talked about finances, she sounded just like
you.” He paused for a moment, and said, “I never really
thought about what growing up like that would do to a
He still brings that conversation up, years later. He
hasn't made a single derisive comment about Millennials
"the FaceID liveness process [doesn't] extract full 3D data from the area around the eye if it recognizes the owner is wearing glasses. Instead, it looks for a black area for the eye with a white point upon it for the iris."
Is there any list of absurdly productive food plants? Like if you only have x amount of space or can only by y number of plants, what do you grow to produce the largest raw mass of food possible
So zucchini is the prototypical example, right. And I know of a few others, like tabasco peppers for example
Tell me in the replies, what plants do you know of that make gardeners say "help, I have more x than I know how to deal with, can anyone come take some home?"

Don't use Microsoft Office, use LibreOffice instead 👍

The Endoscope camera is an electronic pill that, once swallowed, travels passively down the esophagus and through roughly 20 to 25 feet of intestines, where it will capture up to 870,000 images and beam them to a computer wirelessly. The patient feels nothing. Amazing.
An indoor #Florespondence. This is Mimosa pudica (pic 1), also known as the 'sensitive plant' as when you touch the leaves they start closing (pic 2).
This is a self defense mechanism in the wild, but you shouldn't do this too often to your indoor plant as it can weaken the plant apparently.
Pic 3 is the Mimosa on the right, Oxalis triangularis on the left, and a bunch of Heleniums I picked from the garden, in the middle.
Health and vaginas
Since it came up, I did some research about why my vaginal discharge will seem to bleach my panties. I did a scan of a few articles and the consensus is:
Because it is doing what a vagina is supposed to do, for once.
D: I know, right?!
'Healthy, normal' vaginal secretions have a lower pH. I am seeing around 3.x to 4.x, depending on your source (and the vagina, I assume).
Soak your dark-dyed panties in acid for a day, then wash them? Voilà! Ghostly panty streaks! 🤷

also, yesterday #BeardGrabber was repeatedly putting the lid of his bottle back on top of the bottle, and then got frustrated when he actually succeeded, because he wasn't able to pull the lid back off again himself, which meant he wasn't able to continue his playful learning efforts.
#BeardGrabber is currently trying very hard to fit two #LEGO #duplo bricks together.
He gets a bit upset though if he hasn't been able to make them stick together for a long time, or when one of the bricks falls away from him. His tantrums when he gets frustrated by something that doesn't go the way he wants, are a bit confronting as it reminds me of myself... though I do my best for him not to witness my bad mood when I'm frustrated.
Ultimately I argue that we need our systems to be robust enough to support real expansion of decentralization.
But if you can see content, and you help host it, there's some level of responsibility there. I believe that people should have the right to say just about anything in their own home, but when they're in my home, you can't say slurs and hang out here. I would knowingly take down illegal content, thus I'm not sure why I wouldn't knowingly take down unethical content.
