groundbreaking research unearths new evidence to support the revolutionary claim that "essentially, you don't need to be an asshole to be funny"

now the researchers are investigating whether the conjecture "and being an asshole doesn't improve your jokes either" is true, but they predict it is, and point to the heaps of empirical data that already supports the claim

quick psa about my emoji usage
💙 : friendly, not romantic
❤ : probably romantic
so, if I toot a blue heart at you, it's not intended as romantic affection. I thought I should clarify that, since some people might feel uncomfortable with hearts being thrown at them.

you can't just trademark the word "Options"

did some more cleaning on my skateboard and upgraded the acetone jar so now it barely leaks.
my rear right wheel still make a weird sound when i put my weight on it, but since that rarely happens, i think i should be fine riding it for now. but i should look into replacement bearings. still, pretty proud of how well i cleaned them.
buuut i used up half of my acetone, probably due to the leaks. welp, now i know how to make better use of it.

did a smollie! (smol ollie)
in fact, several of them! can't pull it off reliably just yet, but i did a few in a row.

@grainloom i had this exact same thought cross my mind a couple days ago. It seems to get into more and more peoples brains, which is good

there seriously needs to be a Linux distro that tries to mimic Plan 9.

could be a good project for some hackers. it could tie in very well with environments.

a bit of a shame, because yesterday the board ran sooo smooth right after i finished cleaning the bearings.

welp, i think i permanently messed up some of the bearings by putting them in facing the wrong way and also by not cleaning them sooner.
i tried cleaning them again but it didn't do much. also the cleaning jar needs some more work because all the acetone that comes out is not good for the health of squishy humans like me.

if none of the animation youtubers make content about the various european cartoons that we watched in my childhood i might have to step up to the challenge but i'd absolutely hate having to learn video editing again, so pleeease, universe, get Pan to make one.

@trickster the only problem with writing articles for a medium that doesn't send all its (your) data to Google, is that it won't show up on Google News. and same with Facebook: it won't show up in anyone's feeds, so it won't be cross posted to twitter and here

every time i hear a native english speaker on the internetz use a proper SI unit i nearly fall in love

it's pretty irritating that still isn't trying to push for anything more decentralized. this whole "proprietary services will break" video doesn't ever mention how something like or change the picture. heck, he doesn't even mention that the problem is that the services are proprietary. the whole message is just "keep building things even if they break".

Never heard music from Chicane used in a skateboarding video, at least not unironically 😊 very chill, a good way to start your sunday.
