Virginia Gov. Youngkin, who has tried hard to style himself as a moderate, just vetoed a pair of bills that simply established that Virginians have a right to contraceptives, and health care providers have a right to provide contraceptives.

Republicans are 100% coming for contraceptives. https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2024/05/18/virginia-youngkin-vetoes-skill-games-confederate-contraception/

“I avoid sugary drinks assiduously.”

“I don’t know what that means.”

“It means, when Sid offers me a sugary drink, I say, ‘Don’t be an ass, Sid.’”

Somebody should make an OS-agnostic program that searches the hard drive and returns a count of how many versions of Python you have installed

trying to wrap my head around the guy in front of me in the airport TSA Pre line who had no idea giant plastic bottles of water you bought at the store weren’t allowed through security.

The rule has been in place for what, 23 years? How did he even end up in the TSA Pre line?

@krg @mathowie He probably drives a Mercedes EQS or better and assumes no rules in any situation apply to him.

I remember when my very-professional, grownup former place of employment rolled out Slack after a very professional, grownup “security process”, and the VERY FIRST THING these very professional, grownup people did upon rollout was edit their avatars and names to impersonate other people in the company and sew confusion. The only recourse at the time was a sternly-worded company-wide email “As very professional, grownups, we… maybe shouldn’t do that”

1: GLE: Generative Language Enshittification
2: The term “grey goo” comes from nanotechnology, and signifies a scenario where self-replicating nano bots consume all the matter on the earth and turn it into a uniform substance. For our purposes, replace “nano” with “spam”.

Whenever a product has “smart” in the name, just substitute “cunning” to get a better sense of how it works.

How come all these random phone calls from small town USA always come while I’m cooking or eating or watching a movie, and never when I’m sitting around thinking “You know what would be fun right now? Messing with someone’s head.”

Walking back from the wharf, there was an elderly man eating an ice cream cone. “I bet you know the answer to this,” he accosted us.

“It’s possible,” I proposed.

“Why don’t football players get hot?”

“I… guess I don’t know.”

“All those fans!”

I don’t know why he shared that with us.

I don’t know why I’m sharing it with you.

I mean, surveillance capitalism, sure.

But is there really a good reason you shouldn’t be controlled by those with the will and the means to do so?

@osman “I don’t consent to a search of the vehicle.”

“What have you got to hide?”

“Officer, are you currently taking any prescription medications that could interfere with you carrying out your duties as a peace officer? How would you characterize your off duty alcohol consumption? Don’t answer those questions. That’s private information.”
