Been seeing a rising tide of vitriol over upcoming voting in the US and UK, and I really think it’s almost entirely rooted in whether you see your vote as an affirmative statement of your values, or as a pragmatic political choice. Both views are understandable (to me, anyway) but they can’t ever agree on where those views lead them, and it results in a lot of sniping condescension and outright disgust between ostensible allies. I guess that’s first-past-the-post for you.

An old saw holds that if you can fake confidence, you’re ahead of the game, and if you can fake sincerity, then you’ve really got it made.

I have no recollection why I made this a couple years ago, but stumbling across it just now brought me joy. I mean, not the kind of joy others might feel, because I am kind of fucked up.

I'm excited for Thursday- I'll be livestreaming with @mia all about Anchor Positioning. I have some fun demos ready, and we'll be talking about updates to the spec and how to use it right now.

You can get a reminder to watch here- https://www.youtube.com/live/76hIB2L_vs4

@Jamessw @mia It will be available on-demand later, yes? I don’t think I can be there for the live debut.

It is almost unfathomable to me how confusing and difficult it is to do car-buying research online. This is almost entirely down to the car-makers’ sites, which seem deliberately designed to make things much harder than they should be. Just maddening.

No argument can stop Israel’s bloodthirsty leaders. The only thing I can think of is to re-run the BDS/boycott playbook that was deployed against South Africa. Start with the Olympics?

@timbray That will be harder here given how many US states have more or less outlawed BDS action. Last I saw it was over half (including mine).

I know language is fluid and I try not to be overly prescriptivist, but I am never going to be able to accept “learnings” as a valid noun. I’ve tried, but I just can’t, and I need to accept that about myself.

Outrage that a reckless driver's car might gently beep at them.

...as early as 2032:

The technology uses GPS to compare a vehicle's speed with a dataset of posted speed limits. Once the car is at least 10 mph over the speed limit, the system would...

@jwz As a driver in a place that almost requires it, I want this on all my cars. If I’m that far over the limit, either I screwed up big and need to know, or I’m doing it in an emergency and a beep will be the least of my concerns. Hell, give me the “Overspeed” warning aircraft pilots get.

On the ICC warrants for Hamas & Israeli leaders, one line of protest is that “Hamas are autocrats but Bibi is democratically elected.” Um, so what? Whatever you think of Israeli voting choices, only leaders can be held responsible for giving the orders amounting to “Go ahead, slaughter the innocents.” I honestly don’t get it.

@JaneSmith One that gets charged with war crimes and crimes against humanity, that’s what. As they have, starting with leaders but not necessarily ending there. These are not rewards, and claiming them as such makes no sense.

@xi_li_24 You’re replying to a reply to a post by an account that’s been suspended, so you should assume you’re missing context and misunderstanding the point being made. That’s what I’ll assume in order to give you the benefit of the doubt, anyway.
