I studied urban planning in San Francisco, and I just gotta say, the answer to our urban transportation problems is not self driving cars or 'ridesharing' taxis, all of those things are the way that established tech cos attempts to replace and commodify public services. The real answer is less car traffic, more (and more accessible) busses and trains, and shared public transport priority streets with bike and ped priority streets too. And affordable tickets + paid operators of vehicles.

you want, but you're not
allowed to require any

the language's standard

Idea: Chessex the dice manufacturer should make keycaps for mechanical keyboards.

I bet if they used the same plastic as dice it would feel really good, and they already have a rad lineup of colors that they could mix for keys.

I bet there's a fair amount of overlap in their demographic of roleplay nerds with mechanical keyboard nerds.
