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.

Even if a sovereign is all-powerful in his domain, it would be wise to write laws and subject herself to them.

OH: Hacking and the Occult are a lot alike. In both, if you know a person’s True Name, you can have control over them.

#Starlore Vela, the sails. Luhman 16 (aka WISE 1049-5319) is a pair of brown dwarfs, objects just short of the mass needed to ignite the nuclear fusion of full-fledged stars. These are the closest known brown dwarfs to our solar system, 6.6 light years away.

@webmind I wish for more minimalism, less eye candy, proper progress bars instead of just spinners for long operations.

Also please stop ripping features out on the altar of simplicity. Make it easy for anyone, but keep it powerful for the experienced.

Give us hotkeys. Lots of settings, and good defaults.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

This is one of those little impossible things I'm looking forward to supporting. @Sadale has created a physical calculator for the #tokipona language.

Which is to say this irreverent genius has wired up a calculator for a made up language that prides itself on not having much of a number system.

I don’t know why, but there is a smell around, like slightly overcooked lasagna. I have no idea what’s happening around here.
