I really miss my Palm III… PalmOS is still my favourite mobile OS.
“When we shame or violently otherize people in the name of dogma, it becomes a problem.
If we’re not conscious of our dogma, it can become a blind spot that lashes out at you and others from the shadows. When dogma fades into the illusion that it’s ‘just the way things are’, bad things can happen.
Dogma has to be a conscious choice.”

Every time i see someone on the street wearing headphones i can’t not think “they must be listening to some awesome piece of music”.

I love how on iOS, to uninstall apps, you press and hold on an app and this causes all of the app icons to quiver in fear as you choose which ones to destroy.

new rule: if someone expresses frustration about not being able to change some behavior of Android on a forum or IRC channel and you tell them "it's in the settings", you have 3 minutes to provide the precise identifier by which that parameter can be accessed via the `settings` shell command. If you fail to do this, you're banned for life.
Apparently today is "Constitution Day" wherein the U.S. pats itself on the back over a document that claimed all are free and then explicitly didn't grant voting rights to black Americans or women.

17yo nephew: what’s the proper word if a man finds another man beautiful?
Me: Um… beautiful?
Him: But than people think i’m gay.
Me: Are you?
Me: Still, the word is “beautiful”.
I find it really strange people struggle with calling anyone beautiful without implying they are sexually attracted to them. I find a huge lot of men and women beautiful without wanting to have sex with them…
Sometimes i thought the problem is in me. But for a while i know it’s the other way around.
PSA for anyone from a defunct instance who still wants to view their archive, and cant because it's all json:
I made a python script that generates a human-readable html page from you're archive that you can open in your browser to view your old posts.
If you've got python installed, just plop it into the archive, run it, and open the new "processed_archive.html" file it makes in your web browser to read your archive!
