@alex It is claimed that Reddit users are manipulating the price in order to have lulz at hurting the short sellers. I am not convinced that's the whole story.
@alex Let me plug this book, written by a friend of mine. There was a certain amount of fuss over it because he is white. https://www.amazon.com/Conjuring-Harriet-Spirits-Underground-Railroad/dp/1578636442/

Tonight's telephone skit: "Yeah, uh, that piece of used equipment you ordered from us? We wanted to test it before shipping it to you, but we had a Hell of a time just *finding* it in the warehouse and by the time we did the only guy on staff who actually knows what it does had already left for the day, so is it okay if we wait until tomorrow so he can make sure it's working before we ship it?"

@mike mine is named facebook-mskala.zip but I'm not certain whether that is the "native" filename or what I renamed it to. Sadly, I downloaded it November 15 (as part of deleting my account there) and my browser's download history seems to only go back 60 days, so I just missed being able to find the original name there.
@tomharris I think it's also easy to be fooled by the tendency of this sort of thing to be uneven. *Some* schools may be teaching Web design years before *many* are just because of the special interests of a few local teachers or admins.

@jk Dr. Seuss's works are mostly intended to encourage children to learn to read, they are not meant as fashion handbooks
it looks like this didn't thread properly, so it doesn't show what it was a reply to, and people favourited it anyway
