I saw this while browsing an antique shop the other day, and it made me laugh!
Share something that made you laugh, and let's pretend it's not almost Monday again.
The way to shut up Donald Trump: Put him under oath.
"reversal" don't make me laugh. He was never going to testify.
Alright we got an hour or so until #MONSTERDON, your weekly goofy monster movie watching party! This week we're watching MOTHRA (1961), the very first movie with Bugmom. Nothing quite like a kaiju with its own musical number :D
If you'd like to avoid the livetweets, go ahead and set up a filter for the hashtag now! If you'd like to join us, we start at 9pm Eastern, and you can stream the movie gratis and ad free right over here: https://archive.org/details/MOTHRA_201905
Be there or disappoint Momthra!
5 minutes to #Monsterdon
A reminder that there is NOTHING Musk can do that will prompt journalists to stop supporting his business.
Disgusting on his part, as usual.
But disgraceful on their part.
Brain drain is already happening in Austin, TX, where we lived and worked in tech for 20 years.
We left 8 years ago. Never looked back even though we are all native Texans.
Tech companies are leaving there in droves. Who wants to work in a fascist fucking state?
Guess what? NOBODY.
Most of my friends left not long after we did. Saw the writing on the wall.
Tech workers who make 6-7 figures a year destroyed the income of freelancers earning pennies and we called it progress.
Every article I've read about that Cybertruck has been really amusing.
my only gift giving advice is to consider: binoculars. I've bought them at almost every price range for people ages 4 to 89. people LOVE them. you can use them for concerts, stargazing, spying on squirrels, whatever
Since putting up what amounts to a clothesline on my roof a month ago, I've managed to transmit and make contact with 37 states (and multiple countries) using 10 watts.
This is the power equivalent of putting an LED lightbulb on my roof, flicking it on and off, and having the east coast see it and reply.
Never ceases to feel amazing to me. #hamradio

No, no, no. In my youth I was a NY Times copy editor. I would not have permitted this—no one would. We’re not inside the heads of Trump’s lawyers. They SAY they believe the judge is biased, but that doesn’t mean they really do.
I said this before on the bird site but it really is true; I distinctly remember reading Ayn Rand as a teenager and thinking “this is some real bullshit she is trying to pull here”. As pulp it is fine, but this is not a serious philosophy for serious people.
saw that a textbook I need was meant to be freely accessible online, but!
the URL is broken bc the university broke it after the faculty member left, so!
poked around and found the archive on wayback, but they were mostly archives of 404s, but!
found a ruby gem to pull down the archive, but!
oh ruby gems plug is broken, so!
reinstalling ruby, but!
oh huh weird clang problem, AND
AHAHAH XCODE IS BROKEN AFTER MANDATORY OS UPDATE GOTTA REINSTALL DEV TOOLS
~~ the [computers] are a lie ~~
I know I’ve said this before, but as someone who goes into industrial process environments a lot, the lack in of decent ppe, especially FR gear, that properly and safely fits feminine bodies is a frigging travesty. It’s one of those things that actually leads to a culture of poor safety, because nobody really talks about it - guys typically don’t think about people wearing a bra or hairpins and how they could melt to a person in an industrial accident, and women feel like they have to shut up and be one of the guys. And almost everything that fits better requires a lengthy online order from backstock.
Anyway if you are planning on working in that space and aren’t a men’s size M-XXL like nearly all the gear, I’m always available to talk.
Periodic reminder just leaving shit unplugged for hours does fix things. Fucking capacitors are everywhere and you have to defeat them.
Fixed a washing machine like this. Just fixed my motherboard despite me hitting the reset to defaults button AND removing the battery.
Sometimes you got to just give things a time-out in a corner to think about what they did.
