β€’ US blind education was so dedicated to universal design that the blind students used Braille as a way to pass notes and write love letters that their teachers couldn't decipher.

I need to stop jokingly calling myself a gamer because it's going to come true

This is an entertaining look at Pride and other parades in the US, and has a *fantastic* 3-way pun in the title, if nothing else:

There's something in here to make *everyone* uncomfortable, I suspect.

who decided to call it joke theft instead of refried memes
