Life won’t make the best choices for you, so make your own.
My favourite strategy game is one from real life: finding ways to get around restrictions.

Elbow bumps were fantastic while they lasted.

I’m deeply saddened by the reality of affirmative action in the United States.
I will do everything possible to make sure that this never happens in the countries I live in.

Just updated my website. Each project now has a stunning image:
The next step is filling the empty space to the right.
Deleting dangerous posts? Killing free speech.
Not deleting dangerous posts? Blessing the crazy.

Leap years are indeed worse than regular years: there’s an extra day for bad events to happen.
Interesting clock you have, Ros Atkins:
I never understood this sort of infographic. If it’s impossible to compare different-coloured areas to each other, what’s the point of the whole thing?

Just updated my post about train door buttons with better photos and a mention of the pandemic.
I hate topiary.

In January, I wrote the following:
As much as airlines want to make money, humans will continue being humans and change seats with each other. This is, of course, splendid.
Well, I’m afraid this won’t be true for the next few years.
One of the best things about watching movies at home is being able to pause it and think about what’s going on.
The words month and Moon share a common root because a month is a period related to the Moon’s motion.

Made myself a standing workplace outside:

From President Zelensky’s NYT op-ed: “Ukraine remains a good partner and friend of the United States. We received the military assistance we needed to continue to ensure our country’s independence.”
Independence, you say? Needing something = being dependent on that something’s provider.

I love drinking tea with ice cream.

I always click Submit instead of the arrows. Stupid design:
I’m writing a program that will help me write another program.
People should not be working towards 1TB/s internet, but towards files that take up less space.

Evil doesn’t exist. Interests do.
It’s a good thing that English got rid of the long s.

Government bureaucracy is not always bad: it’s a strong filter that stops all extreme initiatives.

This is everything published to my Telegram channel in the last month.
Since January, Twitter has the rights to do whatever it wants to with published content. This is contrary to my world view in which I own and control everything that is a product of my mind.
The blog format doesn’t suit everything I’d like to say, so I started this Telegram channel.
Apple Notes on the Mac is absolutely unresponsive, especially to two-finger clicks. Keep in mind that this software is made in-house...
Elevator operators now have a job again.
FIGMA IS FANTASTIC
The Japanese know what pleasure is: they have Boneless Fish!
Mac bugs keep getting worse and worse. Apple should release another Snow Leopard this year.
Sometimes I want to do an image search with the picture I have in mind.
Just saying: I don’t care about trends. I always act out of my own will.
P. S. I hope these words won’t come back to haunt me.
It always surprises me how Disney makes ugly animals look cute.
Room 104 is the dumbest yet most brilliant show. It proves that any nonsensical artistic idea should be experimented with.
The voice actor impersonating Trump never sounds like Trump, but he does create a metaphor.
In the past few weeks I really fell in love with jasmine tea.
The slogan for the 2020 Eurovision would have been “Open Up”. Hahaha
Perfume smells toxic and is completely pointless.
Aroma candles make any room cosier.
All messengers are bad in some way or another.
iMessage lacks platform universality. Telegram doesn’t believe in decency—any message can be deleted forever, for all sides. Signal is badly designed. WhatsApp doesn’t respect privacy.
Email, however, is universal, honest, unintrusive, simple, and as private as one wants it to be.
A newspaper is the worst content format out there. It’s impossible to read without crumbling its paper and getting furious about its massive size and idiotic foldedness. Newspapers should not exist in the modern world.
