On another channel someone pointed out that I should read the reviews. They tell you exactly what kind of people need a dot matrix printer in 2018.

Amazon just advertised this to me. OkiData still exists? Why in the hell are they still making dot matrix printers?

I just read SQLite's new code of conduct sqlite.org/codeofconduct.html

Can't wait to make my first pull request and it gets held up while the code reviewer attempts to verify whether I "denied myself in order to follow Christ" (point 10) and whether I am "a stranger to the world's ways" (point 20)

This seems like some very next-level trolling

Got my first unsolicited dick pic recently.

Internet culture as such a weird combination of "everything is flawlessly recorded forever" and "you just had to be there". Everything is simultaneously permanent and ephemeral. We're drowning in records that have no context, and context that has no records

"Deadly Theatre is a performance that is so deeply abstracted from its source material that it has become painfully, obviously artificial"

"Holy Theatre is theatre in which those parts of life which escape our senses become manifest. In other words, it is the theatre of true memes,"
