I kinda want more reasons to write python. It's a language I've always liked, but I had surprisingly little use for it.

On the other hand, maybe I should get my shell scripting-damaged mind to get to use a proper type system, where not everything is a string.

On the other other hand (yes, I have three hands), any time not everything is a string I tend to hate working with strings. Like in my 5 minutes with rust, where there was a difference between a "str" and a "string" or something?

Videogames 

I've heard the objective marker rant a few times now - you tend to look just at it, and there's no thought necessary anymore, remember how cool it was in $oldgame when you figured something out for yourself?

But it tends to ignore the times where you couldn't, or where you missed a thing, and it misses a call for making something _better_ than an all-knowing compass. E.g. Outcast (1999) allowed you to ask people for directions, and they'd _point_ if you were close.

Things Fabian doesn't know 

One thing I've never learned is how to interpret/analyze a story/poem/whatever.

I either missed the lesson where they told us or they never did - it was always "analyze this poem", then people said a whole bunch of things that I felt obvious, and a bunch that didn't seem to be in there, and whatever I said was apparently wrong.

This was, as you may assume, quite frustrating, and makes me wary whenever someone does e.g. a marxist reading of the transformers movies.

Why is it called "amplitude", and not "waveheight"?

"Higher Ed"? Well, what drugs did he take?

Lads, lasses and lenbies:

I think I need to rewatch Star Trek. All of it.

Worf: A warrior may only have one mate, until death do them part.

Other Klingons: nuq DaH???

I love how Star Trek makes it clear that Worf has a really warped (hehehe) view of Klingon culture.

Worf: Warriors need to be sober, to always be ready for honorable battle. Give me prune juice!

Other Klingons: In sangvino veritas

Do Ferengi have different porn genres? Big lobes, little lobes, lobe-to-mouth?

A ferengi porn site?

I'm honestly kinda proud of this one because I managed to crop just the crown out of its picture via the "select similar color" tool and inverting the selection.

The greatest advantage of doing your own cooking is never having to eat asparagus again.
