Never actually owning a mattress and just continually getting the free trial mattress from different internet mattress companies

imagine thinking people who are cutesy and kind and gentle are "naive" and not like, freakishly powerful for existing in this world for more than 6 years and not becoming cynical and miserable

doing a discourse lads 

funny to think modern trans theory literally *began* with a rejection of transmedicalism. reactionaries always rely on fabricating fake histories in order to naturalise their ideology, because they can't actually defend it on ethical grounds.

what if we...
started unions...
at our tech jobs...
aha, just kidding

unless...?

So today I noticed the Sigur Rós store has moved to Warner Music and removed all their album digital downloads that were available, free and paid. So this is a reminder to everyone that international licensing deals just wipe music and art off the internet all the time with no warning. Own! Your! Music! Streaming services are nice for discovering new music but they pay nothing to artists, and it can all be taken away instantly unless you own and store the files yourself. #music

Now, I believe that all of these things actually aren't all that hard. But a quantity of easy things to learn adds up to a difficult learning experience nonetheless--especially if people somehow expect you to know all the easy things already (since they're, y'know, easy).

So that's what I think whenever I answer a programming question... things that are obvious to me, and that are demonstrably easy, may simply be something the other person _hasn't gotten around to learning yet_. And that's fine
