When you say a word in a foreign language and ask a person who speaks that language "am I saying that right" and they answer "yes" they don't actually mean yes, they mean: "No, but I don't want to go through the rigamarole of you repeating the word over and over again to try to correct a minor pronunciation difference that you can't even hear, but that is blatantly obvious to me every time you say it yet I can't explain or illustrate because of how specific it is"

@Alexis

Death is like a rollercoaster
Here in Deathburg
Race cars, coasters, aeroplanes
It's a death-blur!
Might be a visionary
Or rewrite destiny!

DeathTales! Woo-hoo!
Every day they're out there making
DeathTales! Woo-hoo!
Tales of harrowing-do
Bad and worse luck tales!

D-d-d-danger! Watch behind you!
There's a force out to find you
What to do, just grab on to some...

DeathTales! Woo-hoo!

You know those screen eye trackers; how accurate are they? Like could you use one as a mouse pointer?

@Alexis It's about the metaphysical concept of a roller coaster, yes.

@Alexis My custom CSS stays fairly close to the default dark theme with some accent colours so when I run into those it usually doesn't stick out too much.

Although there are some places, in the settings sections where I don't go much, where I haven't gotten rid of the ugly mastodon blue.

I was gonna say my custom CSS is very short, but I looked and it is 119 lines which is more than I thought.

Wait, how did I get here? This is a handy cheat sheet and I've never seen it before.

Do you use the right shift key?

Switch the CAPSLOCK and CONTROL keys back to their original positions already.

Why does the CAPSLOCK key get the prime real estate on the home row while the CONTROL key gets the worst position for a modifier key?

Anyway, happy

@Alexis @B Four toes and a finger. Which was the slogan for my political compaign. I did very bad.

Anyone have experience with custom pcb printing? Now a reliable one that ships to Europe, if they ship from Europe that would be even better.

I don't even remember the *name* of IDE that had it set as the shortcut for "comment out line", but I still try to use ctrl+k for that function half the time.

What do you hit the b key with?

And after the success of that movie I'm making Halloween III-2.

Halloween 1 spoilers 

Since they're always doing Halloween sequel half-reboots here's mine:

It's a sequel to only the first movie and takes places 40 years after the events.

After he disappeared from the lawn in the first one he never showed up again and he's been living a normal life ever since.

We mostly follow a group of investigators stalking a suspect, Meyer Michaels, in a cosctco and later trying to get DNA of off some pears he fondled to check their ripeness.

Turns out it wasn't him.

I wanna try a mechanical split keyboard, but they're too expensive if there's chance I might not like it at all.

This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least. Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
