So many creepypasta seem predicated on things behaving in an unusual, usually gory or vaguely sexual, manner. Teeth becoming erect when we get hungry, say, or what if that mind-control ant fungus afflicted humans. And that's all well and good, but the answer to all of them is "we'd be used to it and wouldn't think twice about it" because it's specifically the weirdness that makes these hypotheticals uncomfortable.

Emacs isn't a text editor, it's a terminal multiplexer with a text editor built-in.

there is so much I didn't understand about parenthood until I was one

I just can't countenance using something that isn't open source or that at least uses open standards. I have some Scrivener projects half-done and now they're basically inaccessible unless I find a windows machine.

You never own proprietary shit, not ever.

The tremendous advantage of a terminal-based text editor/word processor is I can work from anywhere that has an internet connection using consistent tools.

A Linux|Android writing workflow otherwise seems borderline impossible.

It's either emacs or Manuskript, since scrivener for Linux just doesn't work anymore. Manuskript looks nice but I get the sense it's a single person's passion project and that seems risky.

I've been in one place too long. I itch to see different vistas. I haven't been in the same place this long in five years or more.

The people responsible for destroying the planet and kicking millions out of their houses during a pandemic will never suffer a single consequence until you, yes you, the person who is reading this, are willing to go to war to see that they do.

That's all there is to it.

Star Trek 

The existence of the transporter is terrifying on so many levels. Leaving aside the existential aspect of it all, consider a world where anyone with access to a transporter can just snatch up anyone else to any secure location they want, or anyone can beam a bomb anywhere. A transporter creates untold opportunities for crime and terrorism.

Good thing Star Trek cured crime before the transporter was invented, cu ne?

The Last Kingdom 

The show does a good job of painting a picture of England for its own sake, at portraying Alfred as a holy visionary rather than just a greedy lord out to expand his lands. And perhaps he was, but it's hard to reconcile that with the fact that the empire he founded ended up as the most brutal the world has ever known.

The Last Kingdom 

Season 4 was kind of weak but I otherwise quite enjoyed the show.

Makes me want to get involved with the SCA, again, finally, maybe.

Cursed idea 

NCIS/Arrowverse crossover. :thinkhappy:
