having your personal computer on at the same time right beside your work computer and having seamless control over both with synergy is a recipe for distraction, who woulda thunk.

Weight loss adventures: going to the bathroom for #2 can change your waist size :p

Book a meeting during early hours and your employees might resenti-sleepwalk through the rest of the day vs being productive.

I just wore some 17 year old mens shorts and noticed some things:

- Despite my 'today waist size' being a lower number, this one is 3 points higher and still just as tight.

- The legs are a lot looser and more comfortable, the pockets are far more spatious. My previous instinct of taking shit out of my pockets due to comfort doesn't happen with these shorts.

I've bought shorts that were too baggy, or seem like non-skinny kinds, but both of them have far smaller pockets.

This means if you open the product and break the warranty sticker, that's not proof of actual abuse, you have to tell them, "please show me actual proof of abuse, using 3rd party parts or breaking stickers is not proof".

TIL manufacturers have to actively prove that you caused damage due to abuse, if they cannot then they have to fix it under warranty.

So much like the cops, the best action is to just go to them and say this broke and I don't know why, saying you used it in normal conditions.

It's also probably why there are water damage stickers in many products 😂


Feynmann & Burnout:

"Then I had another thought: Physics disgusts me a little bit now, but I used to enjoy doing physics. Why did I enjoy it? I used to play with it. I used to do whatever I felt like doing - it didn't have to do with whether it was important for the development of nuclear physics, but whether it was interesting and amusing for me to play with..."
