@garrett @thegibson I only want others to get me something if it strikes them as something that I would really like or enjoy, or has some sort of meaning attached to it. DO NOT get me a gift for the sake of giving me a gift. If you must do that, make it food so it won't stay around forever.

It's the same reason why OOP gets nasty: you're trying to model relationships between data types and instead you keep polluting that information with methods, which assume you are trying to do one very specific and well-understood task with that data, which is fine until you aren't and then you're stuffed.

I'm disappointed. I thought sane people were behind the protests in France. Chemtrails? For fuck's sake, that's as stupid as thinking that smoking banana peels will make you high.

Whenever I buy a scratch-and-win, one of two things happens:

1. I win back the exact amount I paid.

2. I lose my money.

Somehow, this doesn't make me want to buy another. How do these games continue to exist exactly...?

@Gargron Could you make most recent by day instead of by minute, then randomly within each date group? That way the people regularly active stay close to the top but it's much harder to coordinate something like this.

I just stumbled upon the wonderful world of esoteric programming languages and I’m really digging Piet, where the programs look like abstract paintings.

The most annoying thing? Heaters and AC's with a built-in thermostat, because they always turn on/off when the air around them is hot/cold enough, which is completely irrelevant, because *you're* sitting across the room melting or freezing. This also means that you have to keep adjusting the damned thermostat depending on the ambient temperature... AND WHAT THEN IS THE POINT OF HAVING ONE...
