Most Pedestrian Infrastructure Is Really for Drivers
When we build a sidewalk along a busy arterial, or put in a traffic signal or build a pedestrian overpass, we may call it “pedestrian” infrastructure, but the only reason it’s actually needed is because of the presence and primacy of cars. And its purpose is primarily to benefit cars, speeding car travel, by freeing them from the need to pay attention to or yield to pedestrians.
i'm waiting for the game where there's a secret plot to protect zelda by having link disguise himself as her, but then he ends up not being able to defend himself in heels or whatever so he gets kidnapped
zelda, who wasn't informed of this plan, is furious that they'd allow link to be put in danger for her sake without even asking her, but she has to stay in hiding so ganon doesn't realize that he doesn't actually have zelda
so she has to disguise herself as link to rescue herself
America already has an ISIS, a Taliban, an SS waiting to be born. A group of young men willing to do violence at the drop of a hat, because they’ve been brainwashed into hating. The demagogue has blamed hated minorities and advocates of democracy and peace for those young men’s stunted life chances, and they believe him. That’s exactly what an ISIS is, what a Taliban is, what an SS is. The only thing left to do by an authoritarian is to formalize it.
"Remote Code Execution in Slack desktop apps" https://hackerone.com/reports/783877
This is why I refuse to use Slack, Discord, etc. in their native app versions – only in the browser. Browsers have gotten pretty good at sandboxing and auto-updating. Historically, Electron apps have demonstrated themselves to be good at neither.

The Case of the Top Secret iPod
It was a gray day in late 2005. I was sitting at my desk, writing code for the next year’s iPod. Without knocking, the director of iPod Software—my boss’s boss—abruptly entered and closed the door behind him. He cut to the chase. “I have a special assignment for you. Your boss doesn’t know about it. You’ll help two engineers from the US Department of Energy build a special iPod. Report only to me.”
"It seems that, over the last few years, non-binary and trans folks have reached stage three on the Williams Scale: ‘then they fight you’. Hopefully, it won't take long to reach stage four: ‘then you win’."

Who will be worse off in the switch from CERB-to-EI
Breaking down the CERB by province, we see that the more populous provinces of Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia are home to the most recipients. However, 87% of CERB recipients in B.C. and 84% of recipients in Ontario will be worse off after they are rolled back into the EI program under the current rules.
