If you happen to be at the AGO's Ruebens exhibit and you notice a couple of people arguing about which figures are Chonkers and which are Absolute Units ... that'd be me and @thatdawnperson ...

Part of it is not wanting to give Intel any more fucken money, and other part is that my work flow still doesn't lean heavily enough on this machine for it to be problematically slow. Also honestly what would I replace it with with the current gen of MBP being kind of a UX nightmare. Probably just get a Mini, though, because looking at my desk, the laptop is headless with bt keyboard and touchpad so what would I be losing?

It's idle spec; I have no intention of buying a computer any time soon.

I cannot think of any time in my life when I didn't replace my daily computer at least every 2 years. And yet now I'm still running on my 2012 Retina MacBook Pro. Though admittedly it was astonishingly expensive at the time with the 16G ram and 512G of SSD. I suspect in $/day it's my cheapest machine by far, though.

we already have self driving cars they’re called trains, seriously, have you ever met a train driver? they’re like the moon landing, only boomers say they’ve ever seen one and can you trust them?

"I was just kidding" is not a legal defence. Good to know.

I have some simple joys. A cool sunny day. A breezy balcony. Plants, hot soup. A good book. May your day have your own simple joys.

Big advantage to living on the 9th floor is that one can just open the balcony door and pretty much no bugs come in anyway. I'd rather be on the 5th floor (ish) because one feels less disconnected at a "mid-rise" level, but there's advantages to height for sure.

So "they" is shorter, more inclusive, and less awkward, and much less rude than "he or she" and the only reason you have for not using "they" in your spoken or written language is that you have a bad case of lizard brain.

straight men will ramble for ten minutes about the hoppy taste of their craft beer but then get impatient if my gender requires more than a one-word explanation

Yay my dye-sub shirts can be washed on the delicates cycle and don't get fucked up. A relief.

Ugh I have so many pro photographer friends and most of their posts on insta are just ... bad.

happy day of the glorious worker's revolution, long may it continue

Art gallery clerk: hi, how are you?
Old rice white dude: oh, I never complain.
Me: ...

As much as I’m worth to not say “because he’s an old white rich dude and the world revolves around him.”

One day I’ll just start saying this shit out loud. That day may be closer than I think.

Heard of a cool tech-bro-weeding interview technique the other day. A male and female engineer conduct the interview session together. If, when the female engineer asks the candidate a question, he directs his answer to the male engineer, then he's out. They said it happens a lot
