Coolest thing I can think of to do with this would be to get it running in a virtual machine in some existing virtual space, eg an MMO, VR chat room, No Man's Sky etc. I love the idea of this thing's freaky digital soul living on in unrecognizably alien worlds.
It would seem that speculative execution is…
Bang out of order.
A man is at a friend's funeral. After the proceedings, he approaches the widow and asks if she minds if he says a word. "No, of course not," she replies. So he grabs a glass and taps a spoon against it to get everyone's attention, and when the muttering dies down, he clears his throat and speaks: "Plethora." He puts the glass back down and everyone continues their conversations. The widow turns to him, with a tear in her eye. "Thank you," she says. Show more

Saw ‘Heathers’ last night, I had forgotten just how razor sharp and funny it is.
There's these studies about how once you commit to an opinion in front of someone you're less willing to back down from it even in the face of new insights; and online in 2018 has this culture where people rush to comment on everything that happens as fast as possible, you know?

Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!
Also looking for more lists. 😃
Another run bites the dust. 6.6k, 40m - better, but I don't think I'm ever getting those extra 3 minutes off my time... I guess the combination of injury and age wins this round.

@gargron Then again, remember the world of our parents, the Cold War, the nuclear warheads, all the wars? And still they had kids. And our grandparents in the Second World War, the holocaust, the fire bombs, the nuclear bombs… and the Great War in the generation before them.

This would disproportionately affect users in remote locales."
