Me: "Yo! I was reading up on $tech last weekend, we can totally use it in the codebase and it'll be sweet"

Everyone: *crickets*

*months later*

Cunt Exec: So what's this i hear about $tech?

Buddy (white guy #1): Yeah you should talk to Soma about it, i think he knows the most about it out of all of us.

Cunt Exec: *looks at me* ... white guy #2, can you look into this?

Me: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun: :smb3_sun:

Hey folx! It's time!

My name is Soma, your friendly black neighborhood demiman. They/them pronouns, but he/him is no biggie. Im a cyclist, a front-end developer, an ancom, and just an all-around pain in the ass to white people everywhere (well, most anyway).

I got Sly Cooper, Jak and Daxter, and Ratchet and Clank around the same time -- within the same year or two, at least.

R&C *easily* was the better game out of the three.

Jak and Daxter was good in retrospect, and Sly Cooper was only good for the characters (the game itself was pretty boring all things considered)

I think what's dope is that it came out pretty long after the PS2 was released, so it wasnt early enough to be a 'killer title'

But it was easily, a killer fuckin title.

The original 'Ratchet and Clank' for PS2 was easily the greatest platformer for the console (if not one of the best games OAT)

Whodathunk Java errors would be just as "what??"-inducing as Javascript errors

my last enby roommate was awesome: they showed me how to make a gravity bong and how to make coffee filters from toilet paper

queer couples make way better roommates than cishet couples.

i ran out of coffee creamer so im drinking it with a bit of sugar and no cream, and y'know what: it tastes great!

I really should have bought that copy of "Making Magick" i saw at the book store months back

I dont get people who dont get mukbang.

It's the recreation of the social aspect of having a meal with a friend, only you're doing it on stream.

How does *that* get boomers to throw up their hands and go "these kids nowadays"?

I just double-clicked the stream address in the middle of a fire drop and now here I am

Ive been listening to this reggae/dancehall station for like, 20 minutes now.

Oh, internet radio

Watch Dogs 2 isnt too bad.

The ending's kinda lackluster but I can forgive that, b/c i dig the hell out of everything else

my last job consisted of letting you know how many singles there were in your area

Numbers only come about from two places: the result of some study, or: someone's ass

Anytime you seen numbers and figures thrown around, mentally tell yourself 'citation needed'

Elon Musk seems like the kind of guy who's only panic-buying Charmin.

He wouldnt be caught dead buying Great Value.

He also wouldnt be caught dead on the bus.

At the risk of sounding douchy (or even maudlin): i feel bad for those folks who's only social media platforms are birdsite and fuck-youBook
