You ever remember a dream in the middle of the day and just go

Why the fuck was I dreaming about cooking rice?

Don’t want to pick an instance to move to and considering giving up on social media entirely instead

Another unbelievable circuit hack: abusing an ordinary DC-DC power chip to achieve microamp-level quiescent current, an application the chip was never designed for.

> Mandating that no city can sell more than one book in any given trilogy, making people do Grand Quests to get the whole set.
> Properly weird public architecture. Not just fancy and gold, like Planescape mixed with Escher. Especially for public offices.
