Supper for Thursday, 9 May 2019:

4 eggs. Make a pound
5 cups of light white wine
1 cup of pecans coarsely,
3 eggs a la poulette . Cut

Cloth, or white pepper; beat one egg, one yolk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Wipe it clean scummed, then bottle and seal. A couple of dozen of apples, and in the spring several hours or a mixture of the coils, which had been administered. Sifted sugar; sift through a fine yellow. Poerkoell. White spots from varnished furniture: hold a red pepper to taste.

I see lots of people arguing that microsoft's open source efforts are in good faith.

I don't believe that is possible, and I won't believe that is possible until microsoft releases critical components of their software under the (a)gpl version 3 or later.

Microsoft spent years operating under a model of Embrace Extend Extinguish, and we have no reason to believe that they have changed.

Microsoft is your enemy. The fact that they are embracing a thing you love should terrify you.

When I lost a lot of weight, I rewarded myself by buying a bunch of new clothes. Now that I've gained a bunch of weight, I punished myself by buying a bunch of new clothes.

I feel pretty confident that no โ€œover 50sโ€ are involved in this app or its advertisements. Why not marvel at the fact that โ€œover 50sโ€ havenโ€™t kicked the bucket yet? The only people who might find this amusing are young people. Someone should get a refund.

Want to play an interesting game around ? Play โ€œspot the person of colourโ€ in the tube. What I mean are the ads. Whether theyโ€™re selling furniture, vitamins, holidays, or toothbrushes, if you see a personโ€™s skin in an ad (either cartoon or photograph) itโ€™s probably a white person. Some days itโ€™s 90% white. Others itโ€™s 100%.

@ajroach42 i have said it before and I will keep saying

Give me the next next generation!!

I donโ€™t want prequels, I donโ€™t want movies, I only kinda want the Picard show. I want the show thatโ€™s 60-80 years after tng, 1 cameo in the first few episodes, and then all new shit. Except for the throwback eps obvs.

20th century horror fiction:

"What if Nature fought back?"

21st century horror fiction:

"What if it didn't?"

And the dinosaurs looked from velociraptor to lawyer, and from lawyer to velociraptor, but they could no longer tell the difference.

-- Jurassic Farm, George Crichton

I am about 90 minutes from wheels-down in America. That means I'm about 135 minutes from Taco Bell! It's one of my vices. I love .

I'm searching cars on carmax. I can search by number of cylinders in the engine (which I am surprised anyone searches by), but I cannot find a way to search by "number of asses I can sit in this car at the same time." Number of seats or number of people that can be seated isn't an option I can find!

Guess which fire alarm company is going to become famous on the fail blogs:

So Marcus Hutchins, of #WannaCry fame and who had been arrested in the US has pleaded guilty to writing banking #trojan software. Over on the birdsite there's lots of strong opinions. I blogged my opinion that it's a big world out there and trying to dismiss him as a criminal or pardon him because he's a hero are fundamentally misguided. blog.paco.to/2019/marcus-hutch
