Have you ever seen a form where "female" was listed before "male"? Like, the "female" checkbox was to the left or above the "male" checkbox?

Isn't it weird how "male" is always (not usually, but always) comes first?

Just something I noticed.

@cell @Arcana @lain which dialect is that? some of those letters are not in standard arabic.

@yogthos found it:

the others are also funny!

saw this at the co-working space yesterday.

a phone hooked up to a charger with a very short cable, held up with a sleeve made of paper.  the charger's pins pierce the paper sleeve, keeping everything connected.

@datn try .md, or .is, or even .vn.

This code is not type safe because it would then be possible to define a cat and send it after an alligator:

@feld @yosh something makes a whining sound when i shake the monitor, and that fixes the pm2.5 readings for a while (a few hours, but sometimes just a few minutes). i assumed it was the fan. the co2 readings are unaffected.

chants of sennaar: fun game. the steam version appears to work flawlessly on linux.

@yosh my airvisual pro stopped measuring pm2.5 concentrations a couple of years ago (internal fan doesn’t spin, or something), but the co2 sensor is still fine. with the bedroom windows and doors closed at night for 12 hours, the co2 level climbs to over 1200 by the morning.

i don’t have a choice here – my pm2.5 levels stay over 200 for several weeks on end in the winter months. i have a good air purifier, but it doesn’t do anything for co2.

fool! you fell victim to one of the classic blunders – the most famous is “never get involved in a land war in asia,” but only slightly less well known is this: “never trust user input.”

His mother tried to explain. “It’s as if you’d found some great jewel,” she said, “and what’s one of us to do with a diamond but hide it? Anybody rich enough to buy it from you is strong enough to kill you for it. Keep it hid. And keep away from great people and their crafty men!”
