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.

[…] Facebook has also been ordered to delete all data it had gathered illegally on Belgian citizens, including people who were not users of the social network."

Oh frell… The Windows update manager is sooooo bad, sooooo obscure… Please, pretty please, give me something like apt before I start to cry! 😭

Can we please devalue cryptocurrencies so peple stop doing stupid shit like mining currency on folks smart phones?

Ok, still some work to do on that Windows 10.
But seriously, it looks so bad, so ugly, so… unusable, I wouldn’t work on that on a daily basis. Luckily that one isn’t for me.

Do gorillas and bonobos mentally parse us as oversized babies?
We basically look like a highly neotenized version of them, so
