Books and weight reps are alike.
There is light ones and there is heavy ones. The light ones pile up & feel good or bad, important or not. Heavy ones are those that really matter, but you're never going to get them without pilling up the light ones. Heavy ones will give you an emotional, intellectual &/or physical orgasm that no light ones could ever give you, but without pilling up those light ones you will collapse under the heavy ones. Light ones are the journey, heavy ones the enlightenment.

who cares about film grain when we can have "mid-1990s digital camera JPEG" grain instead?

RT @fr3ino@twitter.com: Because of #GDPR, USA Today decided to run a separate version of their website for EU users, which has all the tracking scripts and ads removed. The site seemed very fast, so I did a performance audit. How fast the internet could be without all the junk! 🙄

When will young people stop idolising those rich assholes? Instead they and we should thread those filthy bastards as enemies of mankind!

*Life and death on billionaires' superyachts*

"The Guardian is granted exclusive access to some of the latest superyachts in Monaco. But what is life really like for the young people serving billionaires in the sun? We hear from a mother whose son died while he was working onboard a luxury yacht"

Today at Götzis Hypomeeting, Belgium’s Nafi Thiam, Olympic and world champion, broke the heptathlon world best in the high jump that she already co-owned at 1m98 along with UK Johnson-Thompson. With 2m01, her first ever 2m+ jump, she becomes the 1st ever woman to go 2m+ during multi-event contest! It is also the 1st 2m+ jump of 2018 from a woman, making top performer so far this year, counting with the high jump specialists!

Where will that young woman (23!) stop?

** Update your Twitter settings if you're still using it **

They enabled these anti-privacy settings by default, and they're being shameless about it "Hey you're in control! We're screwing you! See if you are quick enough to disable sharing the data we already sent to marketers?"

A Twitter sale to an even worse corporation is surely around the corner.

Apparently Jeff Bezos makes $28,000 (the median yearly salary of an Amazon employee) every 9 seconds.

He's on the way to becoming the world's first trillionaire.

The inequality is mind boggling. How do you actually, concretely, undo this kind of madness?

I know people send me emoji in textos. But I don’t know which ones, because my dumbphone only displays small squares.

Do I need a new phone?

Still need to go to work though.

Morning hard hard these days. 😴
