And the expendable sunglasses have done their job. I'm torn between "Great, now I don't have sunglasses for a few days" and "Good f*ing riddance"

In other non-alcoholic beer news, Stella Artois makes a surprisingly good one. Which is probably why I've only seen it on the shelf once.

Reminded me of the time I actually did get carded for buying root beer, back in the day.

Um, yeah, i can show you my id, yes i'm over 21, no i don't need to be to buy anything in my cart

Apparently you can't buy "non-alcoholic dry hopped brew" at the self checkout either, I guess because the word beer appears on the label after the words "not a" instead of "root."

Crickets 

This cricket hitched a ride inside on a jacket. I snapped a picture for (yes, really), then started to pick up the jacket to take it back outside. It jumped onto my other hand. But it stayed there while I walked to the door and opened it with my other hand...and it jumped off as I was stepping outside.

What do you own that will make future archaeologists scratch their heads and say, "Probably used for ritual purposes"?

Food, weird branding 

I just noticed the brand name on the blueberries I picked up this week.

Just Desserts 

Kid: I hate this almond milk non dairy version of Phish Food ice cream!

Same kid: keeps sneaking the non-dairy phish food while we're not looking.

I was listening to the Bard's Tale IV soundtrack (highly recommended) today and started thinking about the game, and how I posted my first impressions but never came back to say anything about the game after playing it through.

Short version: Enjoyable mix of retro mechanics and new gaming capabilities, *great* soundtrack, emphasis on strategy rather than just overpowering, some clunky bits even after the "Director's Cut" update.

Long version: hyperborea.org/reviews/games/b

I’d tell you a Fibonacci joke, but it’s probably as bad as the last two you’ve heard combined.

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

One thing that I hope computer folks never lose is the willingness to create presentations and deliver them for free. So much knowledge gets shared by computer folks in such a selfless act; even if that knowledge is just "you're not alone in being interested in this neat thing."
