I wonder how many passwords this stupidly specific requirement result in some variation of Fuck_y0u or Fuck_0ff

One of my fav YTers did a bit on . The stock footage is hilariously wrong, but it's fun that he brought one of the absurdities of rural to a wider audience.

@mivox It HAS been a record-setting year, but even in normal years there's a detailed 3-day plow plan for roads, but just the perennial best-effort "meh" for sidewalks. At least muni is responsive. God help you if AK DOT is responsible for maintaining your bipedal maggot pathway.

I was late to work, but I'm my defense I had to negotiate with (only slightly) unexpected traffic. Still, my commute is probably prettier than yours. #Alaska #Winter #Trail #Moose

@thepoliticalcat Um, I'm on a bike, but we don't salt the roads in ANC so that's not an issue here.

Scott Manley (I really wish he was here) delivered a great summary of the life of Ingenuity. Did you know that the smol chopper was "the first vehicle to have a flight delayed due to weather on another planet"? Now we know.

Prêt-à-puter is a French phrase meaning “ready to ware”.

redrummy,
@redrummy@ohai.social avatar

@Binder Is that a typo, or did you mean "ware"? Because there's a "ready to wear" section in my local store's apparel department and I'm confused as to how that's different from everything else that seems ready to wear.

redrummy,
@redrummy@ohai.social avatar

@Binder So I answered my own question, and yes "ready to wear", but it implies "clothes sold ready to wear rather than made to measure", like there's anything else in the store. So now I have a new confusion.

Because it just came up, a thing I love for dampening outside noise, both literally and socially, is a big ol' set of over-the-head ear cans. While most people seem to be wandering around with ear buds now, nothing says "I can't hear you" like a good set of cans, and you can meanwhile infuse whatever you want into your headspace.

Just had to duplicate & delete a bunch of events created on Android because a recent update changed my default calendar from Exchange. I've helped countless Apple users with the same exact problem who didn't understand why their meetings weren't showing up at work. Fuck all y'all for resetting defaults on updates.

How to citizen science.

If you should come across a mysterious snake of worms, do the following:

  1. Photograph it and upload your observations to iNaturalist.

  2. Collect some larvae into strong alcohol and keep them in a freezer with a label indicating where & when they were collected.

  3. Try to raise some to adult: keep a bunch of larvae alive in a plastic container with some rotting leaves from the site. Adult males (or DNA) are needed to confirm the species.

Not news, but still frustrating when you thought you were having a debate in good faith only to look at their profile & see they were just a shit-stirrer all along.

Overdraft fees are essentially just extremely high interest loans and they trap people in a cycle of debt. So this is yet another move from the current President to help most Americans.

If Trump and the GOP win in November, there will be no new federal rules and regulations to protect you. And likely repeals of any you have now.

Biden administration unveils proposed changes to big banks' overdraft fees:

@TonyStark And this can strike in surprising ways. I had 1 transaction unexpectedly hit just before another one, but the latter was broken up by the vendor onto 4 orders when I only placed 1. So that was 4 overdraft fees all at once. Reminds me of when I was late on a single student loan payment that covered 4 loans so my credit took 4 hits at once. The American credit system & non-optional trackers who leak your data so you are forced into both insecurity & public scrutiny is absolute bullshit.

Did I ever tell you I was named after a man, last name "Ryon", who was a cherished mentor of my mother? Sometimes I wish she'd kept the original spelling for it's uniqueness, but most of the time I think that would have been a pain in the ass for life.
