teaching that MIDI note 60 is middle C as a reference point:
- 60? least memorable number ever
- that's like 261.32whatever Hz, what even is that
- middle?? no one has been able to afford an 88 key keyboard for centuries
teaching that MIDI note 69 is A4 as a reference point:
- 440 Hz baby, that's a tuning standard
- i'll remember it until i die

So the standard solution is to echo back the referrer site, but only if it's whitelisted. "Ah yes foo.com, you are my one and only. I only allow requests from you." "Ah yes bar.com, you are my one and only. I only allow..." It's bizarre.
food, sloth (sin, not animal)
problem: I want to snack while programming
constraints: (a) I want to snack on greasy foods (b) I don't want to get my keyboard all oily (c) I need to keep my right hand free so I can at least use the vim movement keys
outcome: I'm getting pretty good at using chopsticks with my left hand to eat corn chips right from the bag
