Gotta have a hole through the firewall on port Anything Other Than 80/443 to do gopher....

Oh good I can turn off escapes in my strings but not ARBITARY RUNTIME EXECUTION OF CODE?

Thank you Javascript so much.

<<The static String.raw() method is a tag function of template literals, similar to the r prefix in Python or the @ prefix in C# for string literals (yet there is a difference: see explanations in this issue). It's used to get the raw string form of template strings, that is, substitutions (e.g. ${foo}) are processed, but escapes (e.g. \n) are not. >>

@natecull obviously SO is the first thing we rewrite. Upon it, the whole internet will be built, with no off-topic pages and websites that are too broad.

@deltaidea Scrapping the entire Web is a great idea, let me just Stack Overflow how to...

We were so wrong. We should never have come.

Oh well, let's just add fully executable functions into our Internet-exposed run-everywhere string literal notation and then head out to find the Home Planet of the Black Goo Aliens with my fully trustworthy robot, neither of these courses of action are likely to ever have any downsides

This observation may or may not be related to trying to work out what the current rules for strings in Javascript are and, yikes

Nope, I have nothing to do with Rachel Maddow. She's way late to the party.

Josh Marshall from Talking Points Memo, on the other hand, broke the Trump-Russia connection way back in 2015, during the campaign. That's when I started paying attention.

Reads paragraph in a book

<< It is difficult for us who live in the Western world today to conceive of the fear that gripped our early ancestors, of the hold that fear had on their lives. ... a fear of attack by their enemies, a fear of being bewitched, of being poisoned by a rival ... a fear of the elements >>

WHAT WESTERN WORLD HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING IN WE ARE ALL ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED OF ALL OF THESE THINGS BOOK GUY

KINDNESS

There is a kindness that dwells deep down in things; it presides everywhere, often in the places we least expect. The world can be harsh and negative, but if we remain generous and patient, kindness inevitably reveals itself. Something deep in the human soul seems to depend on the presence of kindness; something instinctive in us expects it, and once we sense it we are able to trust and open ourselves.
