The emperor woke when a hand was placed over his mouth.
"I evaded all your guards," the assassin whispered, "and outwitted all your traps."
The emperor nodded, and the assassin took a step back.
"Is it five three?" the emperor asked
"Yes, I've won five. Let's swap clothes now."

> “I feel so bad that he doesn’t get to enjoy the intense collaborative synergy of this work environment the way the rest of us do,” said junior developer Megan Chen, one of three dozen DigiMax employees who spends the entirety of her workday sitting within arm’s reach of her colleagues at a long, unpartitioned table, and is unable to look up from her laptop without risking a moment of awkward eye contact.

I love the sound of magpie song. It's one of the things that will guaranteed put a smile on my face. If you're not an Aussie and have never heard it before, check it out #sincerepost

This is a supertoot about a very good point:

Centralized identity can be an *unsafe* concept for members of particular populations.

Lose it from your goals.

Netflix needs a "I am never going to continue watching this" button that sends a show back into the depths of the weird category where I found it at 3am and stops recommending me things based on it.

Actually it could just forget everything that happens between 2am and 5am.

The person appeared out of nowhere.
"Hell," they said, "I come from the future."
"Uh. It's 'hello'," I said, "also, what? Have you come to change the past?"

I think a lot about how chuds have to constantly rename themselves and their horrible ideas because it's awkward to just say "we want to hurt people because we feel fragile and impotent."

Meanwhile, if you explain leftist concepts to moderates without using the specific terms for those ideas ("socialism," "collectivization," etc.), they often agree.

Right-wingers have bad ideas that they hide behind new terms, and leftists have good ideas that have to be unearthed from beneath demonized terms.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
