@phooky I earlyvoted and it was great!

Also, my employer makes election day an optional paid holiday and encourages us to spread the idea around in hopes that everyone will do it. Encourage your business-having acquaintances!

Valuable bot that may already exist: gives you information about local ballot issues, upcoming votes, etc. during early voting windows and a week before an election.

"OK Boomer" only works on Boomers from Google. If your Boomer is from Apple, you have to say "Hey, Boomer." If it's from Amazon, you can simply preface your instruction with "Boomer", e.g. "Boomer, stop."

Pewvember day 4: The tiny Delexine L4 was marketed as "the discreet blaster", but anyone with an ear within a parsec could instantly recognize its distinctive "pew pew".

Day 3 of Pewvember: the ill-advised Chronoablative Hyperbeam was fired only once, vaporizing its own creation. Its name, some early technical drawings, and this field recording are all that remain.

Hilariously the phrase "the real McCoy" has obscure origins and every etymology you've ever heard is fake

Day 2 of Pewvember: The Raygun Industries Model 6, which almost never blew up in the user's hands. Reminiscent of the classic pewpew.

Is there a term for this particular patois that surrounds wealth? Because it's fucking nuts.

“building a business model that will adapt this legendary brand for the future of experiential luxury.”

(Least of all the hyperminers on the Sirian-Magellanic wormline, many of whom are still suffering from phase-shifted warp lung.)
