Absolutely, especially when they have more societal power.

In other news, I’m starting to think that if html/css were less forgiving, building a website would actually be easier.  Just display an error message with the offending line(s), rather than render garbage.

Edit: Sadly, it seems that it is cheaper to drive than it is to live somewhere civilised enough that I don’t need to.

Double post just for the age:

You'd think, that by now, the CSS standard would have a built in option to confine children in the boxes the parents set out for them without having to fuck around with work-arounds.

Today I learned about fat-tailed sheep.

Generally they do worse than just the tail docking.  Mulesing leaves the entire area a smooth hairless mass of scar tissue and is often done to prevent fly strike.

I don't even know what absurd whateverx by whatever thing I'm typing on this. it's about 50 feet or inches whatever you use. I'm only using it for this day. Man was it complicated.  ( I know,I checked, and I'm joking.) I used a literal tape measure to measure the diameter.

I don't know why, but its more relatable for me that I'm seeing phones in modern media being on vibrate and not have ring tones (Smiling Friends, Komi Can't Communicate). It feels realistic. I don't know anyone that still uses ring tones. That isn't to say no one does, but in my experience it seems that vibrate only has become the norm.

I have done the “vibrate only” thing for at least fifteen years now.  The downside is getting phantom vibrations in my pocket, even when I’m on the phone and it’s in my hand.  Also, I am known to miss calls/texts if I’m walking or biking.

I'm about 50/50. My phone is on vibrate when I'm working, but when I'm done (and if I remember) I'll turn the sound back on. My ringtone is the theme from The Mandalorian, I love getting calls 😀
