roses are red
violets are blue
in surveillance capitalism
poem reads you

and shows you ads
for flower shops

and never stops

it cares not about
if privacy's harmed
the money is green
when people are farmed

twitter is cyan
facebook is blue
your friends are the product
and so are you

“So we can argue whether ‘guys’ is or isn’t gender neutral, but for an awful lot of both men and women, ‘people’ isn’t even gender neutral.” — Kate Gregory, “Thoughts about ‘guys’ ” gregcons.com/KateBlog/Thoughts

TIL: It’s possible for a single “git push” command to force-update some refs but not others. For example, “git push origin +develop master” is like a combination of “git push --force origin develop” and “git push origin master”. See the git-push docs. git-scm.com/docs/git-push/2.20

A Star Trek spinoff idea :StarfleetInsignia: 

"Pull requests with a failing status can't be merged on a phone." Wow GitHub, you wanna give me a breathalyzer too?

husband: "wow, I can get a linux laptop for half the price of the equivalent mac"
me: "yeah, the only downside is it doesn't work"

As expected, Trump walked into the turkey pardoning and pardoned Saudi Arabia instead.

I know we’re not supposed to have a lot of exceptions to the First Amendment, but should people really be allowed to put “Flour” in the name of their gluten-free bakeries?

“The shame over an incident like Baraboo’s shouldn’t be merely over the fact that it happened. It should be felt over the fact that when it happens, we pretend like nobody could have seen it coming.” — Monica Hesse in The Washington Post washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/s

Romulan Ale is illegal in the Federation, sir, and I never slice!

the most statistically normal person lives in a normal house, earns a normal wage, and drives a normal car. they are most likely to be named Nornald and are marrried to someone who is also named Nornald. they have 2.715 children, who are called Nornald, Norna and Nornald

I thought the race for director of the Marin Municipal Water District was going to be the most boring one on the ballot, but one candidate is promising “tasty water” and the other supports “expanded use of goats.” I don’t know what to think!

“What’s this?!” Jack Skellington shouts, increasingly frustrated by JavaScript’s binding rules

Sometimes I feel contempt for the people on Stack Overflow who say, “I don’t care what’s going on or what the underlying problem is; just tell me how to make this work!”

Then I start having Xcode problems…

[Me, sobbing] You can't just call whatever you see a file, Linux.

[Linux, points at hard drive] /dev/sda

[Me] Please, no

[Linux, points at controller] /dev/input/js0

In his review of the iPhone XR Austin Mann writes, “The iPhone XR and XS have the same wide angle lens, a 26mm f/1.8 lens. The iPhone XR uses this 26mm f/1.8 lens for portraits and the iPhone XS uses its telephoto lens (51mm f/2.4) for portraits.”

It makes perfect sense to give the focal lengths in 35 mm–equivalent terms, but you need to convert the apertures too for an honest comparison. These cameras are 26 mm f/11 and 52 mm f/21.

I don't like the person Youtube recommendations think I am.
