@Cat top to bottom: mine - my dog’s - my dad’s ... he’s 86 and my mum’s in late-stage hospice! oh and that last cookie - which would be my mum’s - was empty: gallows humour i reckon :P i prefer more abstract ones like in your photo, but this restaurant’s food is as on as the fortunes are off!
@Ricardus great question - the answer has eluded me. if they are indeed still on the market, i don't think it includes the united states. i've had a lot of trouble finding information on the subject recently. but in the 90s - when i was way, way too young to be drinking ~200mg caffeine 5 times in a saturday night dnd campaign or lan party - that's exactly what i was doing and i loved it. @beni @xmanmonk by the by, what do all'y'all use for excessive caffeine sources nowadays?
when Glover left #Community in a fragile state unsure of his decision but with a burning suspicion that he could do more elsewhere (it's pretty difficult to do better than what Dan Harmon tells you to do in front of a camera in terms of having a positive influence on the world) i hoped he was right but doubted it would come together.
happily proven wrong. because of this work i'm now constantly laughing and crying on the inside. woo! i'm so pretty / etc...

i avoid talking much yet about #thisIsAmerica by Donald "Childish Gambino" Glover.
for now i just want to express my gratitude. the hysterical & poignant piece will undoubtedly be featured in music theory and sound engineering academics 50 years from now. i play it on loop over and over. the composition should not work but i am close to proving why it is a mathematical exception to several bach (four-voice chorale-derived) standards.
the video is as good as the music:
@deathstarpm nobody likes it, i think that's why it's a good thing to call them.
but when referring to "to toot" and "a toot" i always say "to publish" or "to log" and "an entry" or "log entry" respectively instead.
anywhatever, welcome to this thing, whatever it is!
if i understand correctly, the "incels" are people who watch Adventure Time and think "you know, that Ice King is on to something."
@gemlog yes i agree that “throw out all your mobile hardware and start over” is a great idea for when i have the time and resources but at the moment i do not.
(part of the problem is i was using a iphone4 jailbroken with ios5 or something for years; bought thousands of dollars worth of proprietary software e.g. japanese rosetta stone etc - then upon upgrading to iphone8 i see in one instant how different/bad it became & i’m not done with my 日本語 lessons etc, so, f’d for moment)
@gemlog it’s not an issue of bandwidth or even storage space - both of which i have unlimited across multiple locations on the globe; apple devices automatically backup to icloud and as far as i see there is no option to backup elsewhere. if there is such an option i would gladly use one of my nextcloud instances but my complaint is that - unless i misunderstand - apple does not allow this.
apple is such a dick. it tells me icloud storage is near full and tries to get me to pay for more. after struggling to find a way to click thru without buying anything i see that all these pre-installed apple apps that i deleted store a bunch of shit on icloud, which i use only for device backups - & by the by, should i be responsible for the size of my device backups? either let me compress them properly myself, or fuck off with your panhandling, apple!

only one tv show has done the "fall in love with a digital assistant" trope correctly and as per usual it was south park.
every other attempt involved augmenting the capabilities of the software & devices. when cartman falls in love with alexa, he does not hesitate to add 100 more of the same product from various brands. that is the nature of the story; these things are slaves instead of people.
you can't fall in love with them past what cartman is capable of.
