Sometimes it really enrages me that I have actual skills and do actual work but I'm homeless while my therapist has a masters degree in being a nice fucking guy and makes more than enough money despite the fact he can't even keep his dumbass acronyms straight.

PS: letting a master's-degree-holding counselor try to deal with an ubergenius who's had CPTSD since he was 5 years old is like arming a California fire team with moist towelettes

It is this moment when I realize that the only way to communicate to my friend's aging cat "stop with the yelling to get in and out every 5 minutes" is to kick it in the head, that I promise myself I will soberly commit to fuck myself in the eye with every rusty nail I ever encounter for the rest of my life before ever owning a cat again.

so israel is shelling Syria, trump is trying to fire missiles at Russians in Syria, the usa/israeli allies were the ones who used the gas, zucky is selling our infomand cambridge anal, a usa/uk military contractor is rigging USA elections.

And the people want to know
When will you care
That nobody asks you anymore
To be there
But heeeeere
With your fingers in your eardrums
Fuuuuuuuuucking up the world
Planet Earth is through
With the cancer it calls you

@rixx By far my favorite explanation for not using git is this: stevelosh.com/blog/2013/04/git

It's less about explaining and reasons, and more about how it simply feels hostile to the user.

RT @jackofquils@twitter.com

how did "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" become the typical sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and not "sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" which is objectively a million times cooler

Even I had to re-read those last two toots like three times to see how the hell my brain changed gears so severely, so quickly.

Because word play and Honest Trailers (and because DC Comics illiteracy) I hereby re-christen Deathstroke from "Discount Deadpool" to "Mr. Steal Yo Kills".

When I write JS games right now I use my own tiny framework and do everything manually. I would like to hear from #JavaScript #GameDev peeps on what HTML5 game engines they've tried and which they like the most? It would be great to cut down on dev time.
