we have a fortunes-off file so you can print offensive quotes at login time. No distro I know of comes with a fortunes-supportive file that lists encouraging, calming quotes.
You can make sudo(8) insult users when they type their passwords wrong ("Defaults insults" in sudoers). There's no option to make sudo be gentle and understanding when you mistype.
I grew up in free software circles and only really learned any emotional skills after growing out of them.
Anyone who complains about Nvidia issues on Wayland (or Linux in general!) has a moral obligation to boycott their business. Wayland developers have told you exactly why Nvidia is not supported, and who is to blame. Harassing Wayland devs because they have a name and a face you can harass, rather than boycotting the faceless multi-billion dollar company who is responsible, makes that person an asshole and a shitty consumer.
Nvidia is the one who deliberately engineers cryptographic solutions to subvert the free software driver. Nvidia is the one who refuses to collaborate with the community on standardization. Nvidia is the ONLY GRAPHICS VENDOR WHICH IS NOT UPSTREAM.
If you spent $1,000 on a GPU which became a brick when you tried to use Wayland on it, that's on YOU. Not on Wayland. Letting your confirmation bias protect your ego from the possibility that you made a mistake and turning that feeling into harassing FOSS developers and spreading misinformation about their work is FUCKED UP and needs to stop.

BBC Radio 4 is really pushing gov 'back to work' agenda today.
The only two commenters on were talking how this was temporary, sandwich workers losing their jobs, how staff are important but companies will figure out how to bring them back into the office, and of course the spectre of "offshoring".
They tend followed up with the Brittania song bullshit.
I think Google should save everyone a lot of time and effort and jump straight to discontinuing new services:
"We are proud to announce that Google Kitchen Tools will no longer be available on Sep 1st 2020, nor has it ever been available. Should you wish to export your Google Kitchen Tools data, you should be aware that there is no data, as Google Kitchen Tools has never existed.

I have this weird state of affairs where I have so much shit to do and have had so much shit to do for so long that it (1) takes a long time to finish anything and (2) finished things are immediately replaced by new tasks. There's a constant flow of tasks being concieved and completed and the two kinds are separated by weirdly large gulfs of time. I also context switch A LOT, working on as many as two or three dozen tasks per week of which maybe 2 will be completed during that timeframe
This workflow makes me highly aware of the unrelenting flow of time
