@socks Computers are literally magic. Crystals imprinted with arcane sigils using extremely specific materials that must be treated and prepared by arcane methods, carefully arranged on further sigils made of copper and gold, bound to do one's will using a script in an esoteric language written in microscopic glyphs

Pro tip: warm up your sheet mask by sticking it (still in the package) under your favorite dog.

Those who fail to use Git are visited by three spirits. The Ghost of Version Past, the Ghost of Version Present, and the Ghost of Version Yet To Come.

To make them go away, the programmer must successfully rebase the space-time continuum so that it excludes the events in which these spirits visit them without destroying any of the other important moments in their life.

apparently april is autism month so, to summarize: Autism Speaks is still a hate group; listen to #ActuallyAutistic people instead cuz we know our own needs best.

The Abrahamic Religions are:

Christianity
Islam
Judaism
Druze
Bábism
Bahá'i
Mandeanism
Rastafari
Mormonism
Samaritanism
Shabakism
Yazdânism

Each one has a very unique theology, unique history, unique religious texts, and unique conceptualizations of the divine. They all share certain stories and characters but often have intensely different interpretations (in some of them Abraham is evil!!)

Don't say ""Abrahamic"" or "Judeo-Christian" when you just mean "Christian"
