Sometimes, when we're not in a hurry, we just like to head to our destination and travel badly. Like, not pay attention to bus stops, or wander around before catching the next one. Inefficiency doesn't exist if you aren't trying to do anything efficiently.

Hang on. This anti-avian thing is deeper than first suspected

A good quote from Alyssa Rosenzweig in an interview about her work developing GPU drivers that I think is a good philosophy for all engineers to have and find comfort in:

"to cover airfare, gas money, hotel costs, childcare, or any other prohibitive cost."

Sometimes I think about the esoteric claim that every human being on Earth is here because they specifically chose to be here, now, at this point in history

and it fills me with awe at how courageous everyone currently alive must be

Serious question:

Has anyone made a board game where players rearrange the deck chairs on the Titanic?
