Papa John's, Pizza Show more
Boo fucking hoo.
Sorry, but Schnatter was an asshole before he made it painfully apparent on a conference call.
Not to mention you can do a lot better than eat inferior pizza, especially one that has a racist asshole owning 29% of the company and no intention of leaving.
I was feeling a bit rubbish today, but something moved me to sit down and make a little crested gecko emoji, and now I've got a massive smile on my face. 😁
And thanks to @Curator, you can use it here!! Take a look:

Didn't get to my reading this morning like I wanted but managed to make some progress on Our Oriental Heritage and Old Man's War.
Macintosh shit Show more
I think there's a certain sort of unbridled optimism that Apple fans have nowadays that's charming.
Charming in the same way that Lucy would always pull away the football from Charlie Brown.
Apple fan: I just hope that Apple will one day release a professional grade Macintosh computer that doesn't require a boat load of equipment to interface with the rest of the world.
Apple: We're releasing a thinner, lighter Macbook Pro that requires a $3,000 backpack addition to even charge.

Fucking pissed at white dudes in free software prioritizing exercising their free speech by showing "look, I can make jokes which affect people not like me" and then being like "free software is a movement for everyone"
Nobody has ever questioned whether *I* belong. But I've tried to bring in plenty of other people who left because they didn't feel welcome.
I believe in free software, I want it to be a movement for everyone. Most of these people would say "I do too".
SO FUCKING ACT LIKE IT.
