Me: I would like to be a better person

Therapist: In what ways might you like to be better so we can work on those

Me: First of all, how dare you,

I think I've never been more forcibly struck than today with the realisation that today's Web developers have never used 1980s BASIC systems and just have no awareness that computers used to be things you could both use and program interactively, in the same session.

We've deprived an entire couple generations of children of a basic formative mind-expanding experience of cognitive freedom, and now they're making tools that restrict other people's thought lives and see nothing wrong with that.

US Politics, twutter 

Been good to watch the fever break now that Trump is gone


'Tucker Carlson tonight, mocking Biden for saying the January 6 insurrection was worst attack on our country since Civil War: "Really? The worst attack on our democracy in 160 years? How about the Immigration Act of 1965?"'

US Politics 

Ralph Northam is still governor of Virginia. Matt Gaetz is going to keep his seat.

US Politics 

"Last April, detainees also held a peaceful protest, stemming from the center not providing sufficient personal protective equipment to avoid the spread of Covid-19, according to the report. The facility responded by deploying chemical agents from the ceiling"

The concentration camps we run apparently have the ability to "[deploy] chemical agents from the ceiling"

Cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cool cooooooooooool

Folks, let's keep the spirit of April Fool's Day all through the year. Every time you see a post, think "is someone trying to fool me?" rather than uncritically accepting it

Pui Pui Molcar is a very silly, very cute stop-motion cartoon about guinea pig cars:

Each episode is only about two and a half minutes long; you can watch all the Pui Pui Molcar released so far in under 20 minutes. And there's no dialogue, so you don't have to worry about translation. :)

Can someone help with this mystery clue
I got all the letters but one, and I can't figure out what would match "very funny" here

Silly me, assuming that because in bash (as of 5.0.3)

ARR=("one" "two")
for value in ${ARR[*]}
echo $value

acts as you'd expect,

ARR=("one" "two")
for index in ${!ARR[*]}
echo ${ARR[index]}

would also work as you'd expect.

There's nothing more ridiculous than hand-wringing over people being mean about Rush Limbaugh's death. Being mean, often about the deaths of other people, is what Rush Limbaugh did for a living.

He made the world worse and it is better now that he is gone.

Man the culture war is such an amazing gift to the wealthy. Spent years plundering the public treasury to the detriment of your power grid? Blame it on the environmentalists!

US Politics 

It's been so good to see the much-vaunted "fever break" of the GOP now that Trump is no longer president

cnpol, xinjiang, mass surveillance 

"Xinjiang really shows how privacy is a gateway right, where if you have no privacy, that’s where you see that you have no freedoms as a human being at all. You don’t have the right to practice your religion, you don’t have the right to be who you are, you don’t even have the right to think your own thoughts because your thoughts are being parsed out by these incessant visits and incessantly monitored by surveillance systems, whether they’re human or artificial, and evaluated constantly for your level of loyalty to the government."

Excellent reporting by @yaelwrites


Looking forward to the extremely ethical next 4 years

"within months of retiring from the Pentagon, Austin joined the board of weapons maker Raytheon, a company that makes bombs that the Saudis are using to inflict tremendous death and suffering on the people of Yemen ... [he has] investments in the private equity fund Pine Island Capital Partners, a private equity firm that specializes in military contractors"
