"Judith Flanders: All sorting systems have biases. Dewey’s has more biases than most. And in the modern world, it is particularly troublesome. It is entirely Anglo-centric. It is almost, comically, Christian-centric.
Daniel Semo: So Christianity was given all the numbers between 200 and 289. Whereas Islam is given only a single number: 297."

Q: How do I screw in a light bulb?
A1: Why do you want to do that? It would be so much quicker to use a torch. It you have a wind-up one you don't even have to buy batteries!
A2: I can't believe you don't know how to do that. You're such a noob.
A3: Have you considered just living in darkness? It's more possible than you think ;)
A4: I wrote a blog post about this four years ago. Check it out: link-that-does-not-work .com

No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.

It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.
I guess the CAD software I'm looking for just doesn't exist yet. Designing a case should really be just a couple of mouse clicks:

Anything like that?
guess which all-powerful tech monopoly is breaking ublock origin (and umatrix, and likely many other similar add-ons, such as noscript) in their browser, which happens to be the most popular browser in the world?
who could have foreseen this? who would ever think that an advertising company's web browser would end up breaking compatibility with an ad blocker? frankly i'm shocked
lifehack: whenever public wifi asks you for your email, instead of giving it to them, do this ONE NEAT TRICK

give them a taste of their own medicine!!
