Whenever someone pronounces gif with a hard g (like graft), if I can fit it in, I'll say something to the effect of "You're wrong, but I'm feeling (with a hard g) generous, so I'll allow it."

The official #FreeRadical stance on EU's newly-passed Article 13: we're outside your jurisdiction so have fun trying to enforce that. We're making exactly zero changes to comply with a bullshit law on a different continent.

To our EU users: we don't know who lives where and don't want to. That's parliament's problem, not yours or ours. We've got your back.

Whenever someone pronounces gif with a hard g (like graft), if I can fit it in, I'll say something to the effect of "You're wrong, but I'm feeling (with a hard g) generous, so I'll allow it."

‪Do people who pronounce with a hard G because “Graphics” is a hard G pronounce “J-Feg” since it stands for Joint Photographics Experts Group?‬

For instance, for those who would be turned off by heavy subjects in a first episode, I'd suggest Three Robots, whereas if I'm suggesting to someone less sensitive to those elements with a strong sense of justice (perhaps akin to Magneto), I'd say start with Good Hunting. - 2/2

Started watching Love, Death, and Robots this weekend, and I'm enjoying it so far. It's a bunch of artistic standalone stories with no relation to one another, and doesn't shy away from mature elements of storytelling, gore and nudity are fair game.
What I find cool about it is I can suggest different episodes to start with depending on who I recommend it to - 1/2

One must think like a criminal to do infosec.

You need to predict the goal, and the next move.

straight-laced boyscout may get lucky from time to time, but never going to get you all the way there.

If you do any programming work, do not visit Japan while the crazy law mentioned in the article is on the books

a pox upon those who talk on their phones in the quiet areas of the library.

GF, after getting new pills: "I need 10 days worth of pills, but these will only last 8"
me: "how many pills you got?"
gf: "32"
me: "and how often do you take them?"
gf: "3 per day"
me: "that's okay then"
gf: "no it isn't, how much is 32/3?"

I laughed my ass off.

Tech speak is pretty much arcane incantations to me and I have no recourse but to assume that every programmer or developer is a literal wizard

A funny satire DNA testing site I think you'd enjoy. Other NA producers would likely get a kick out of it, too

It's official: Russiagate is this generation's WMD

Note to readers: in light of news that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s investigation is complete, I’m releasing this chapter of Hate Inc. early, with a few new details added up top. Nobody wants to hear this, but news that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is headed home without issuing new charges is a death-blow for the reputation of the American news media.

@DetectiveHyde @jack @levi Games are literally attempts to understand life. Dogs play by socializing and cooperating and then trying to be the first to get the ball. This is how they eat, they cooperate with people, hunt in packs. Cats play by hunting or fighting. They catch a lizard and then let it go just to catch it again, they scrap with their friends so they'll know what to do with competitors.

Everything that plays does so in a way that mimics a part of their life that they have to master in order to survive. Children play by acting out roles from stories or adults in their lives, telling each other stories, negotiating rulesets, games that train motor skills, or also fighting. Every game kids play involve risk and reward. They're focusing on fractions of their own adulthood. Sid Meyer said that a game is "a series of interesting decisions". What makes a decision interesting?

So "life is a game" is as true as any other way to characterize it. It's the sum total of all the small games we play and then their combination into the biggest game there is.
