covid tests are bad 

Okay so I just looked up the actual false negative rate for COVID tests and omfg, I knew it was bad, but I didn't know it was THAT BAD.

67% of tests on day 4 of illness (which is on average the day before people start getting symptoms, when they are deffo super contagious) are false negatives. 𝟞𝟟%. TWO THIRDS.

It drops to 20% during the first few days after people develop symptoms. That's still bad.

blaseball 

From my lazy in my head stats, it seems like your ROI on blaseball bets is nearly always better if you bet on the favored team.

There are also some funny jumps in ROI as you change your bet because of all the integer arithmetic, but I haven't been bothering with optimizing for those lol

I won every bet I made that round :O all 8!

My company has gone to a thing where part of our paycheck is now bonus that pays out quarterly (the bonus scales based on the company's profits, so they pay out after they wrap up financials for the quarter).

So that will be next paycheck. I know around how much it will be, so it's not like a surprise bonus, but it's still weird, like, how do I budget this?

vegan food 

Making soy-maple tempeh chunks seared in the cast iron skillet and then dumping them into boxed vegan mac feels a *little* wrong, but I'm not gonna let that stop me.

I bought a french press from a company and in their shipping email they said I might also enjoy a one thousand seven hundred and ninety nine dollar sofa

I'm really trying to understand blaseball by watching some live games. It seems my preferred team, the Yellowstone Magic(s?), has a player named Boyfriend Monreal. So that seems good.

I once saw a player bat with a gunblade, which also seemed favorable.

Wednesday, or as some call it, "Quitter's Friday"

I listen to two covers of John the Revelator (Caldwell/Ivory) regularly, the best one on Spotify and the best one on YouTube, and the YouTube one is like 1.1× the speed of the Spotify one. It's so invigorating listening to them absolutely cooking it after hearing the slower cover a few times.

kink advice 

I think a lot of people see kinky activities as always moving towards a full scene or more risky activities, and Dr. Jess really makes a point that fantasy is a type of play in itself and there are so many ways you can fine-tune the psychological intensity of kink to keep it safe for both partners while still being exciting.--and even playing in ways that feel exciting for the partner who's into a kink but still safe for the one who's not.

and dirty talk to them like "Oh, I see the neighbors' lights are on! Do you think they can see us? I see their sillhouette in the window!" Meanwhile, it's the middle of the night, the lights are off, and the neighbors can't see anything, but your partner doesn't know that, and can still get that thrill without you having to literally do it in an alleyway in broad daylight.

kink advice 

She talks a lot about imaginative play, where especially if both partners aren't 100% on the same page, you can fill in a lot of gaps with dirty talk and pull safe and fun *elements* of the kink without doing the parts that are scary to you or your partner.

Eg. your partner's fantasy is public sex, but you're not into it. What excites them about it? The idea that someone might see their sexual conquest? You could have sex with your partner's back turned to a balcony door (c.)

kink advice 

One thing I've learned from listening to Sex with Dr. Jess is that there are a TON of gradations between never talking about a kink and fully acting on it. She talks a lot about introducing things like threesomes, cucking, etc. into sex. Often people will think "If I'm into (eg) puppy play, the next step is to tell my partner and then have a full scene, and that's so intimidating! What if I don't like it?" You don't have to go there right away! (cont.)

Hey devs, please use semantic html. This is important!

When listing things, use ul/li! When writing things, use p! When adding navigation, use nav! When putting the main part of your website inside a div, use main! Please use h1, h2, h3 for your titles! Don't use table for layout, they are for data!

Screen readers users have shortcuts to jump to all those parts of your website instead of reading it from top to bottom. But it only works with semantic html. So please help them! :tealheart:
