THEREFORE A PROGRAMMER MUST NEVER MAKE A MANAGEMENT DECISION

did you know: You can connect to twitch chat using any Internet Relay Chat client. This is a good complement to watching the stream with mpv using its automatic youtube-dl integration.

I feel like people often use "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail" to criticize things which are more accurately "when you have a nail gun, you're gonna use a lot more nails than screws"

2596. Galaxies 

title text: I know it seems overwhelming, but don't worry; I'm sure most of them have only a few stars, and probably no planets.

2594. Consensus Time 

title text: Now, you may argue that the varying hour lengths and feedback effects would cause chaos. To which I say, yeah, and I'm also curious to see how the weekday cycle interacts with it! So, you in?

it's clearly important to Elon Musk that people think he's funny, but you are NOT allowed to make jokes at his expense. Which is a classic trait of extremely funny people

@maya I love this kind of thing.

You may also enjoy the French word for "unicorn", "licorne", which exists because French speakers did this sort of thing *twice* with one word:

Greek "monokeros" ("one horn")

-> Latin "unicornis" (also "one horn", just cut the word apart, translate the parts, and glue them back together)

-> Old French "unicorne" (same word but make it French; Middle English branched off around this point)

-> French speakers: 'un' is that word we stick in front of things to refer to one of them, clearly this is 'un icorne' (n.b. 'un' is masculine)

-> well, we can also put le/la/l' in front of words to say '*the* thing' instead of '*a* thing'

-> okay now we have l'icorne, let's forget etymology *again* and word-smash it into one word, "licorne"

-> okay now we have this one word, we need articles in front of it, unicorns are feminine so "une licorne", "la licorne"

People from the next village over think they're soooo cool 'cause their intramural basketball team usually takes nationals and also because they don't have an ancient evil in their farmland, pinned in place with a slowly degrading rune-marked plinth. Sure, it keeps getting struck by lightning, the plinth, and yes, it's been attacked by mad-eyed mask-wearing strangers with picks and axes, but you know... we have a nice cucumber festival. We have some nice things.
