Must admit, I didn't expect GDPR to be the huge boon it has been. Not over privacy or anything, just the amount of sites I click onto from Hellbird that cover the article in permissions notices is huge.

All that ends up happening is instead of clicking allow, it's just enough friction for me to go 'you know what, I didn't want to read this anyway' and go back to what I was doing.

For all these "CSS is bad" people, I'd like to remind to them on how good websites were when there was no standards and every browser did whatever the f*ck they wanted to do with their tags and displays.

So good web developers had to make two different sites for IE and NS, and force the user to have the knowledge of which site should they enter.

Yeah, no...

Just because some people don't know how to properly use CSS that doesn't mean its bad. Stop calling everything bad, please.

In The Little Mermaid, Sebastian says 'Jeez, man.' Jeez is a minced oath for Jesus. How does he know that word?

THERE WAS A CRAB JESUS.

Crab Jesus was crucified on a wooden asterisk by Pontius Pilot Whale.

"The chief executive of the tech giant Tesla offered to assist the rescue mission by providing a submarine. The request was turned down. Musk lashed out on Sunday, saying he would make a video proving that his “mini-sub” would have been successful and adding: “Sorry pedo guy, you really did ask for it.”

This is Silicon Valley dudebroism at its finest: tech solutions to non-tech problems + wild personal aggression against anyone begging to differ.

“I've decided "being in your prime" means being any age that's a prime number. So, about 25% of the time until you're 100: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89 and 97.”

Stylish was an awesome browser extension that enabled you to override CSS on websites. Turns out that it logs every single URL you visit! robertheaton.com/2018/07/02/st

For Google searches, it also records the search term and search results. Yikes.

So like 4:20 is when you get high but why is it 4:19 the time when you come up with a new Nigerian prince scam? That seems backwards. The Nigerian prince trick is clearly a highdea.
