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
πŸ’™ : friendly, not romantic
❀ : probably romantic

I wrote a new article, on creating algebraic data types using functions in Raku.

It uses a technique called BΓΆhm-Berarducci encoding, so there is some cool type theory behind it, but it is also simply another way to create typed data structures.

In a nutshell:


role BoolBB[&b] {
method unBoolBB(Any \t, Any \f --> Any) {


newtype BoolBB = BoolBB {
unBoolBB :: forall a .
a -> a -> a
