Just noticed that my KVM "Ctrl + Ctrl + Enter" meant press Ctrl twice then Enter to switch machines. When I first got it I couldn't figure out and was pressing all three keys at the same time.

99% of programming is figuring out why you received a banana when you asked for an apple.

(And the answer is always “because you actually asked for a banana all along.”)

More perspective?

The global energy consumption in 2017 was 22.3 terawatt hours.

If we moved all financial transactions over to Bitcoin, we'd require over 1000 terawatt hours... each day(!) for Bitcoin transactions alone(!).

real /r/relationships post title 

I [18 F] left my laptop open and my sister [15 F] replaced everything in my "Hobbies & Passions" section on my resumé with just "garlic bread" as a joke. I unknowingly sent it out to about 20-30 businesses and now I have no idea what to do about it.

In Spanish one's not even used to positioning the tongue like that and end up pronouncing sh / ch.

Currently what I'm missing the most because of virtual mandarin classes is not being able to see people faces when learning how to pronounce j, q, x.
