spoilers(?) for Discovery S1E5 

my only complaint is that the toothbrushing scene in S1E5 absolutely should have ended with a little smooch. The affection there was palpable and it felt smooch-worthy.

Finally getting around to watching Star Trek: Discovery (still not very far in – no spoilers, please!), and I’m enjoying the hell out of it. Everyone feels so gay.

Two complete sentences joined together by a semicolon are still two sentences. The presence of a semicolon instead of a period doesn’t make them just one sentence.

The unicode consortium really needs to catch up and add :lolsob:, the face that is half 😂 and half 😭, to the standard.

The absent-mindedly planted seeds (feverfew or St Johns wort) are barely starting to put out leaves that will eventually be identifiable.

I planted some feverfew seeds and some St Johns wort seeds, in two pots side by side, and didn’t label them because “I’ll remember”.

But I didn’t. And now only one has sprouted, so I need to wait for them to grow more for me to tell which it is.

Sick of people calling everything in crypto a Ponzi scheme. Some crypto projects are pump and dump schemes, while others are pyramid schemes. Others are just standard issue fraud. Others are just middlemen skimming of the top. Stop glossing over the diversity in the industry.

An : hi, I’m Joshu! For work, I write software that tells robots how to do science. For fun: reading and trying to get back into sewing clothes, which I used to be good at but haven’t practiced in a while.
