Hmm.
yeah, I could do one of those

A vital component of being on social media is to be company. This includes an element of interacting with others. But it also includes an element of being seen, of consistently being there, saying things that are at once new and unsurprising. There is an art to it, to be consistently novel and familiar. I cannot teach it to you, since it stems from you being yourself in the company of others; in exchange, we are company

Oh, and I like cats

Deep lore on Swedish cuisine 

back in the days, when frozen pizzas were becoming a thing, they had yet to come up with a good name for a brand of pan pizzas. thus, they looked to international politics and concluded that, aye, Bill Clinton is a name everyone knows. thus, the pizzas were named "Billys"

however, our story did not end there. they still had to find a name for their lineup of pierogies. thus, once again looking to international politics, they leant east and went with "Gorbys"

I personally like that people are open-sourcing messy code. that's what a lot of real, practical code looks like. "good code" is an American-dream-like illusion that is used to sell textbooks.

@root it's because dwarf fortress doesn't have scripting for dogs.

every single creature in dwarf fortress is implemented using the same system. even wagons. wagons can die of fright.

here's all the code that dwarf fortress has for dogs: github.com/BenLubar/raws/blob/ more than half of that code is setting up fur colors.

everything in dwarf fortress is even weirder than you expect, even when taking this rule into account. I highly recommend jumping into this rabbit hole, because it's fascinating.

why are all the bugs in dwarf fortress so good
