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).

Hi everyone!

Sorry for the lack of toots. There has not been much going on honestly.

@somarasu HAS been slowly chipping away at the Aardwolf-Interface repository which ia really awesome! Even beautification, and functional menus are important ;)

For those whom are not afraid to poke at HTML/CSS, and a pinch of JS here is the repo.

im okay im sorry I shoulda added laughing emojis lol I was laugh crying but :blobheartcat:

It's pretty nice to get up early in the morning, and catch the NA/CA/SA folk saying good night, so like passing ships we can say good night and good morning as we move into different times.

Kinda like planned obsolescence: your good show is designed busted (i.e.: cancellable within 1 season) so you have to go out and buy new shows at a lesser value and price!

Theory time!

Cancelling popular (or at least cult favorite) shows before their time is a way of extending the ability to tell this story over time.

For example: Firefly. Only 1 season, nerds hate everything, right?

Well what if i told you that by nuking this one good show, we can tell the same story with 10 mediocre shows that people will lap up b/c hey, remember Firefly?

But if you ask me "have i told you the story about $x?", im not gonna lie; i'll tell you 'yeah' and it's up to you whether you wanna retell it

seriously, some friends have told me the same story about 15 separate times, and every time i give them the level of attention as if it were my first time (maybe not 100% but i do make an effort)

Im a firm believer in the "those who do not remember the past" adage, but at the same time, Im also a firm believer of "let people tell their story like it's the first time you're hearing it"

Just your daily reminder that Coca-Cola Orange Vanilla is a thing, and it's utterly delicious

"War of the Spark" is the greatest set of all time strictly for the inclusion of

I want to see a captcha where people have to type the text they see in images, but it's text like "Immigrants are human beings just like me", "The color of my skin does not make me better than other people", "LGBTQ+ people deserve all the rights that I have", etc.
