I wonder if I could invent a silent firework, most of the complaints about them seem to be from the noise rather than the light show, I wonder if there's a propellant you could use other than gunpowder that would explode with a quiet enough sound it wouldn't carry to the ground?

It turns out that you can actually run away from home and turn into a tiger. I still remembered though.
An old tiger I met said that if I forgot what I left, I will lose myself.
That, I remember clearly.
This morning I woke up an adult human, and I can't remember what I ran from.

resource distribution offer, period supplies 

Would LOVE for a programmer to tell me how that kind of thing happens

Computer bugs where stuff crashes make sense to me. Likewise, bugs where stuff doesn't work at all.

What gets me is bugs where things ALMOST work, and obviously SHOULD work, but are doing something very strange.

For example: This happens to a number of scientific papers in Firefox's PDF reader, but they work fine in SumatraPDF and Adobe.

What...what is making you draw black circles on all the figures?

okay does anyone but me use the white-out tape strips?

Do you have a brand you like that works consistently well?

@wigglytuffitout for some reason I feel like you like office supplies?

(mine is nearly out and I got it from the supply closet at work and I can't GET TO the supply closet at work anymore)

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you the ability to be kind to yourself ✨

also still thinking about Haf's Life Pro Tips, which basically come down to, like, "never avoid making that pun" and "be nice to cats"

Not only does LeGuin get a US Postage Stamp, the background celebrates one of the first and most notable #nonbinary characters in #sff.

Of course, the barrier to that is that I don't have the spoons to build up a content creation presence, or even to schedule regular streams so I don't take viewers away from streamers I like.

Wonder if GoodTimesWithScar has any advice. He's a fairly successful Minecraft personality with chronic health issues that often make it hard to keep a video schedule.

Worth asking, at least.

I occasionally fantasize about being a gofer on a Minecraft server full of youtubers, like Hermitcraft.

I'd set up a shop and take orders, charge by the shulker for resource gathering and by the hour for chunkloading, maybe stream my adventures and show up on the background of other people's videos

Maybe even play backstage ninja, too make plot points happen when they need to be kept secret.

Boss: for team building, let's share 3 little known facts about ourselves

Me: *desperately trying to think of something, anything that won't get me fired*

(for those curious about attribution, the person who shared it on Discord says they got it from a Facebook group, and can't remember where exactly, but that at least explains why TinEye couldn't find it)
