@BarbNerdy Say less and ask more.
Your advice is not as good
As you think it is.

Favorite from the book :-)

Contact with Reality
No plan survives contact with reality, or so the saying goes. So why should we make plans at all? A story.

Great idea, to review --> The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck - Summarized by the Author Mark Manson

(listening to the audio book now)

@BarbNerdy that one is great, yeah. Still curious about an author summarizing their own book

@BarbNerdy no, not yet. Gotta check that out later. I'm currently 5 chapters in on the audio book

@BarbNerdy I just found the book: the subtle art of not giving a fuck. Quite an interesting read, may be relevant :-)

Velocity – Gross vs. Net
Velocity is where theory and practice clash very hard. Your numbers may look great but your predictability is worthless - or vice versa.

Rank – what is it good for?
Absolutely nothing. Ha! Everybody wants it and the power that comes with it, but when you use it, you lose it.

re: definitely not original ideas but thoughts on cyberpunk 

@holly sounds like the canopy society in Chasm City by Alistair Reynolds. Would probably make an awesome game setting!

@vortex_egg a ritual invocation for flow is definitely something a lot of people would appreciate (me included)

@Decentralize_today his posting that he's sick marks the first time since his becoming president that I believe, he's as healthy as a horse

ist still, hat nur vor der Warnung selbst gewarnt. Einzig die Feuerwehr hat den ein-minütigen Entwarnungston gespielt. 5 Minuten lang.

re: Magneto was right. 

@drwho @yojimbo "Strike next and last" reminds me of Ender's Game (the book more than the movie).

I'd love to see more teenagers discuss the ideas and connotations in that book.

Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦‍♂️


And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)

Boost if I'm right.
