@jk Buy old hydrogen atmosphere isolator tubes and hook them up to a CCFL inverter, makes pretty blue diffuse light that changes when you get near it due to your electric field

A thought for highly motivated political Millennials:

* capitalism is broken and doing a 1930s Great Depression
* but maybe don't do Hitler again?
* but also maybe don't do Stalin again?
* also maybe don't do Mao
* also maybe don't do Pol Pot

The Alt-Right started at Herbert Hoover and went full Adolf Hitler.

But the emerging Alt-Left, which does appear to be a thing, could start at FDR and end up at Josef Stalin.

Please just let's not do Stalin/Mao again, okay?

sometimes I get an e-mail from a startup recruiter to work on their dev team and I want to reply with "why don't we just cut out the middleman—you write me a check for 18 months of salary and I won't bother to write the code that you'd end up throwing out anyway when you go out of business"

Internet Explorer was conceived by the pizza dragging rat in the subway. The rendering engine is made out of discarded hair and hog fat

CAPITALISM FAN: See, the problem with setting 'fair prices' for goods is that you create shortages! But if you just let THE MARKET (TM) set the prices, there are no shortages ever!

THE MARKET (TM): Hi so we raised the cost of houses to ONE MILLION DOLLARS. And we didn't build any new ones because that would lower the price. Literally fewer people can now live in houses.

CAPITALISM FAN: That's not a shortage. Shortages are what affect millionaires, not morally bad poor people who eat avocados.
