@Joshi I just don't care.

Anatomically I'm a woman.

I was born late in the Baby Boom (early 1960s) and commonly refer to all people as "guys."

I've been called "dude" by a Gen X woman and "mami" by a Hispanic woman. I was once introduced to someone as my brother's brother, which puzzled but did not offend me.

I've thought about using "it."

The only gender word that ever offended me was when someone called me "sir."

I've put that in my bio: Please don't call me "sir."

Geeks under 35, do you use the word grok?

Do you shut the toilet lid before flushing? (To be clear, I’m talking about the *lid*, not the seat.)

Plz retoot for science

I'm told this project is still recruiting participants.

"This study will be a phase-1, open-label, placebo-controlled, evaluation of two-dosages of a live, recombinant Newcastle disease virus expressing the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19]."

It is taking place at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.

If you are a physics prof & a woman up for tenure, & this sounds like it may refer to your portfolio, I have his whole thread in which he quotes & mocks it. Someone on your committee should be kicked off. Get in touch if you think it's yours.

Cool job opportunity! @torproject is looking for a software engineer to join the applications team. You would be hacking away on the Tor Browser! torproject.org/about/jobs/soft

Okay, I'm curious, when did you guys first hear about/join Linux? Please boost for a wider data pool. :boost_love:

I Don't Exercise (my city does that for me, but for realz!)

I used to write other stuff in the description that introduced the video, but hardly anybody reads it anyway, especially now that YouTube has made it even harder to find in the new UI.

At least you can come here for references if you're really determined.

Our Wednesday morning walk was not as successful as we hoped. But we did see this mother in a stream with her adorable little ducklings.

This morning on the bus a man was wearing a KN95 mask hanging off one ear. I was wearing a two-layer cloth mask covering my mouth and nose.

Tell me again why (K)N95 masks are always better.

It seems to me that something I'll actually wear beats one that is theoretically better but maybe too uncomfortable to wear.

PS: Masks are still "required" on transit here, though it is not enforced.

Those of you who have come here from corporate social media (recently or in the past) and stayed, which of the following were behind your reasons to stay here?

Boosts OK!
