So after some research I've concluded that some leaves on my plant show signs of over-watering and other leaves show signs of under-watering. What the hell have I done?

tfw when you're desperate to get your hands on a specific book and the library closes at 5pm on sundays and nobody's ever thought to make an ebook of the damn thing

The rules for the honorific "Reverend" are somewhat unclear to me, but it doesn't appear to be necessarily religious.

I think I could very rightfully decide to call myself "The Reverend devlaf" which tbh sounds kinda cool.

Anybody have experience, good or bad, using Brave browser?

(to be clear, I'm genuinely curious; not jumping ship on firefox with the knee-jerkers w.r.t the recent extensions/normandy stuff, that's just coincidental timing)

I wouldn't mind living in a world with more lasers.

trying to plan a trip in may and it's taking me forever. Because I have so many good options!

My old manager just messaged me this; I don't think I've ever received a better compliment:

Recruiter: “So what would you say your strengths are?”
Devin: “Deleting code.”
Recruiter: “Cool, so like, fixing bugs?”
Devin: “No, just removing code.”
Recruiter: “I don’t understand, is the code broken?”
Devin: “No, it just shouldn’t be there.”
Recruiter: “Ok, well... what’s your favorite language to write in?”
Devin: “Again, I’m less interested in writing code, and more interested in deleting code.”

I asked one of the IT helpdesk people at my office if they do battery disposal and they said yes. But they also seemed really confused when I pulled a big old battery out of my backpack. I guess they meant like double-a's?

home fire alarms should have a button for "shut the hell up for the next 15 minutes, I'm just cooking, okay?"

that would be totally reasonable

I don't think I've ever managed to change the battery on my watch and not injure myself in the process

will someone, for the love of god, pretty, pretty please ... teach me how to dougie?

I think the real problem here is that I just don't really understand batteries that well.

this power supply I'm using to charge a battery is making intermittent buzzing sounds, but on the whole it seems to be working. I'm not sure what's up, but having the right fire extinguisher nearby makes me feel a bit better.

I think I'm going to tune up my bicycle today. That seems like a slightly productive thing to do.

@leibert it gets into some mode where it stops displaying the units and I dont know why, but if I just turn it off and on again it usually comes back

@leibert -- I was looking up stuff about how to use your oscilloscope and stumbled upon this video.

It didn't help me at all, but it turns out that there is something surprisingly soothing about listening to a British guy casually complaining about his ebay purchase for 20 minutes.
