The first ten on today’s playlist:
It does not. My personality remains exactly the same. Almost no one can tell I’m drunk, especially if I am sitting down. On the other hand, mentally weak people use drunkenness as an excuse to act out. If I want to pop off I don’t need to be drunk to do it. I just do it. But not very often and only when called for.
Listening to old Willie Nelson songs and reading about Popperian falsification. Incidentally, Firefox wants to correct “Popperian” to “Pomeranian.”
Nah, that’s a little different. Just a little bit.
The new interface is clearly inferior. Less readable, harder to navigate and even more ad-optimized. It’s trash. The best interface was around 2008.
She aptly uses Windows 95 as a metaphor for the optimism toward the future we all felt back then. Great song. The Win 95 reference is particularly appropriate given that the interface and base design was in fact a huge leap forward for usability and functionality, as opposed to what we experience now — where all is regression, drastically-reduced functionality, algorithmic oppression and data-thievin’ on a massive scale.
A show I was just watching was set in 1307 in Paris. It annoyed me because they were speaking French, but it wasn’t Old French. It was completely modern. I know I am a language nerd but that took me right out of it. They hadn’t even made it up to Middle French at that time and the French spoken in 1307 would’ve sounded way hella different than what we hear now.
In reality, it’s much worse than this — at least 50% higher than the official numbers. The inflation numbers used to be reasonably close. But these days, they are pure fiction for political reasons.
Hmm, that’s a good one! I wouldn’t fall for that because in general I am very wary and low-empathy, but that is indeed one that seems like it’d be very effective.
Recently, I’ve been reading and hearing people say “future presentation” instead of “feature presentation.” And that makes me just want to hurt them. Like, a lot.
It just makes no damn sense.
