Tossing pennies down a wishing well was fine in the 1700s, but today, to correct for inflation, the recommended procedure is to look down the well and shout your credit card number.

@celesteh I'm not sure.

If synthetic beef were perfected, cows would be doomed.

What happens when synthetic labor is perfected?

I think 99% of us would have exactly as much leverage as those cows.

I think that's super-common.

My middle-aged self turned up, full of advice and instructions. I nodded along.
My old self had already warned me, and told me to ignore it.

I don't understand why suddenly the cool idea is using blockchains for advertising.

Why ... would that be better? I don't understand the advantage?

I hope that, one day, life extension technology will allow me to become the 𝐨𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐫 kind of millennial.

I don't know where you live, but here in the Boston area, falling back has put the sun high enough in the sky to be comfortable for most people's morning commute.

And the sunset would have been in people's eyes during the evening commute, but now it's down entirely.

@msh

Your plan would increase night-driving (and hence traffic accidents.)

After a certain point, evenings are a lost cause, but the morning commute can still be salvaged.

Fun Truth that's different than what you learned on Twitter :

Daylights Saving Time increases traffic accidents ... for about two days. For the remainder of the eight months it's active it DECREASES traffic accidents.

As far as traffic accidents go, it's a huge net positive.

I don't understand China's Tiangong program.

Why build space stations and then not use them?

If you had a secret door disguised as a bookshelf, what book would you use as the latch?

I wish I'd gone through a punk phase when I was in my early teens so I'd have some hilarious photos to share now.

@selfnoise it's not like they could have used the ballots again next year.

Idea : Abridged Versions of classic games.

I'd like to play, for example, Chrono Cross again, but there's no way I'm going to dedicate 60hrs to it.

They need to make a "New Game Minus" where I can replay it and just hit the high-points.

When the guy who draws "Schlock Mercenary" heard that phrase for the first time, he liked it so much that he had coins made up to commemorate it.

just a small technical update of my #pico8 engine.

I added vertex+(shadowed!)wireframe display and inverted the (infamously-wrong-sided)Y-axis! :D

I don't understand why "Face With Rolling Eyes" isn't the most widely used emoji.
It's not even in the top ten!

Some people have no sense of priority. 🙄
