XKCD nailed it.
Redbull doesn’t give you wings
Wanted to move my
modem router to another room. Cat5 already running there, and the connection is only 50/30 anyways, so just spliced into it.
Now, generally that’s done with couplers and terminated ends. I didn’t happen to have either on hand so used duct tape and crossed fingers.
Works for now, I’ll do it right
some day when it stops working.
Just seriously considered joining the reserves for all of 0.3 seconds.
Then I remembered we’re fighting a Holy
War Armed Conflict.
Lego is releasing a minifig scale Firespray
Of course, it’s Slave One not the Andrasta, but that would be asking a lot.
Hopefully they’ll release an alternate along with the YT-2000 Otana.
And yes. I’m bitter that there hasn’t been an X-Wing alliance remake, can you tell?
Strollers in the wheelchair spots
Why is it that all of a sudden bus drivers allow people to fold up the wheelchair seats for massive strollers?
From the globe and mail:
Metro Transit guidelines allow “smaller” strollers, defined as those up to 105 by 56 centimetres, and asks that babies be carried while on buses. Drivers have explicit authority to prohibit larger strollers.
The rules clearly say that a stroller has to be folded up too. And I can’t see the Escalade of strollers that just got on being all that safe in a collision. Wheelchairs are tied down.
Is it too much to ask for Halifax transit to enforce their own rules?
Apparently Microsoft has patents on “showing multiple windows in a web browser”
That is insane. But wait, there’s more!
They make a BILLION DOLLARS on royalties from Samsung android devices.
I was told the other day that top 20 lists, which have twenty separate page loads, are “great UX”

Logical fallacies 101
Why aren’t logical fallacies a required subject in school?
Ran into that one today. Not only is it impossible to prove I didn’t do X, its impossible to do X, and someone is going around saying I did X.
My head hurts.
Truer words were never spoken
