It’s been a while since I played around with a new-to-me programming language. Last I poked at were Rust, Go, V and Crystal. Some practical, some mostly for funsies.

Any suggestions? I’m leaning towards really digging into Elixir.

I spend most of my workday in Ruby and JS/TS so looking for more variety.

Y’all are so fucking cool idk

How do I be cool like you

Also learn to have weakly held opinions on things that aren’t like, imperative to your morals and values.

Changing your mind about trivial stuff can feel very liberating in a world where changing minds is ever harder.

One of the best things I’ve ever learned is that you do not, in fact, need to have an opinion on everything.

Some stuff, sure. But not everything.

Hello, enjoy this:

Fill a mason jar about half way with 1 part cold brew coffee to 1 part oat milk (use w/e milk, I like oat for the flavor)

Add in a splash of maple syrup and a cinnamon stick

Add a bit of ice, put on the lid, shake for 10 seconds, strain out the ice and cinnamon stick (unless you want a garnish!) and drink.

Takes like 30 seconds total and is incredible.


surely this time a *different* rich person using their means to gain political power is going to be better because they refused to align with this other group of rich people using their means to gain power

nevermind that virtually all of our country's history has followed this path, surely that has only brought us good, right? Nothing is wrong right now so let's just keep doing it this way.

Reading some article about a non-trump republican candidate

> The field of candidates chasing Ohio’s GOP Senate nomination has pledged allegiance to former President Donald Trump and beaten a path to Mar-a-Lago.

> But not Matt Dolan. The state senator has declined to kiss the ring, and instead run as a traditional conservative — pouring $10.6 million of his own money into the effort.

Can we *not* with the rich people using their wealth to get ahead in politics like what the fuck y'all

10yo asked what "boner city" meant. After a long talk, I discovered he actually was trying to read "bona fides".

Just so we are clear: there is an account on TikTok that uses AI generated audio to create “bikini bottom news” coverage of current events, with the fish and everything. Often, I genuinely hear of news from this fake cartoon fish before anywhere else.

I don’t know what to make of this fact but I’m okay with it.

Before joining Mastodon had you participated or were active on BBS (dial-up) or forums (vBulletin style) in the past?

Boosts are appreciated for better sample sizes.

I'm pleased to note that even, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

Disabled my "silence unknown callers" setting on my phone because I'm expecting a call later today from someone I don't know, and not ten minutes later, spam call.

Its so out of control
