work, electronics 

my company consistently underestimates the time needed for design review by like an order of magnitude and it drives me nuts

I've been working on this board for months and it's both a literal computer and a sensitive scientific instrument! no we cannot just review this in a single disorganized video call. here's a list of sections that need review. if each one gets at least an hour it's multiple engineer-weeks!

here's an idea: every standard referenced in laws, is practically part of the law, and as such, should be publicly available, free of charge to the user

wanted: How to Git, for Coworkers Who Don't Write Code, Only Reluctantly Use Computers, and It Would Be Nice if They Stopped Messing Things Up In Merges

Actually, arguments in favour of "economy of form" which demand that media such as albums, films, books not "waste the audience's time" buys into the commodification of every aspect of existence by capitalism. Art should not subscribe to this commodification: it should resist it. So fill your novels with as many digressions, your movies with as many lingering shots and unnecessary scenes, your albums with as much filler as you feel like doing. I will be happy to waste that time with you.

complain about food, ethnocentrism 

americans: think made-in-usa is best and other places make crappy cheap knockoffs

american grocery stores: hon hon here are some very francais pains au chocolat, don't they look so very european, they are 50% preservatives, not flaky or laminated, and taste like a slightly buttery dinner roll with cheap chocolate

masto meta, tusky 

a lot of people here seem to use tusky

and like in my experience it's the absolute fucking worst, just kinda soft-freezes a lot? like the gui still works but network operations don't go through or something?

am i missing something? is there something less shit? or a way to make it less shit?
