Tuesday, May 19

Made myself a standing workplace outside:

Wednesday, May 20

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.

Friday, May 22

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.

Saturday, May 23

Evil doesn’t exist. Interests do.

It’s a good thing that English got rid of the long s.

If we ſtill had it today, reading would be much ſlower and ſlippier.

Sunday, May 24

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

My Telegram posts from April 16 till May 16, 2020

Week 21

This is everything published to my Telegram channel in the last month.

April 16

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.

April 20

Apple Notes on the Mac is absolutely unresponsive, especially to two-finger clicks. Keep in mind that this software is made in-house...

April 21

Elevator operators now have a job again.

April 26

FIGMA IS FANTASTIC

April 28

The Japanese know what pleasure is: they’ve got Boneless Fish!

Mac bugs keep getting worse and worse. Apple should release another Snow Leopard this year.

May 2

Sometimes I want to do an image search with the picture I have in mind.

May 8

Just saying: I don’t care about trends. I always act out of my own will.

P. S. Hopefully these words won’t come back to haunt me.

May 14

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.

May 15

In the past few weeks I really fell in love with jasmine tea.

May 16

The slogan for the 2020 Eurovision would have been “Open Up”. Hahaha

If you’ve got Bitcoins laying around you can send them to me: 1N9XQChRzR8qkR2D1Yd8gbsWwtYeQbFGdM

Why online public school won’t last

I’m entering week three of online school, the best school experience I’ve ever had.

But it will end once the quarantine ends. Online lessons cancel borders, therefore potentially reducing future tax revenue. It’s not worth it for a country to educate somebody without getting anything in return.

Messengers

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.

Newspapers

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.

Cancel culture and dialogue

I despise cancel culture: responding to every mishap is a path to isolation.

Dialogue between adversaries should never stop, as it is the only way to find a solution that works well for both sides.

The world needs victims

Problems are solved after misfortunes happen, therefore big change happens after big tragedies. This is sad, but that’s how the world rolls.

Microtasks

When in a queue, instead of playing useless games, I complete microtasks. I have many notes full of tiny tasks, each one taking at most a minute to complete. I can’t stand wasting time.

Chinese Apple fakes

Why do Chinese copycats trying to pretend they have the real thing always fail so badly? Why do they make it so obvious that what they’re selling is fake despite pretending it’s genuine? To make sure their friends don’t get scammed?
