The word queue is ironic. It's just q with a bunch of silent letters waiting in line.

For people looking for an alternative to Facebook events that isn't spammy like evite and the like, I recommend checking out gath.io

It requires no login, basically you provide an email address, you get a unique editing URL, you make a nice looking event form, and people can RSVP there. Your event and all related info is deleted from their DB 2 weeks after the event is over.

Him, mid twenties, fresh out of college, first proper job in his life. Thinks he's seen it all and knows it all, just appropriate for him to make blanket, stereotypical comments about an entire industry.

We've all been there, myself included. But please: try and don't be that kind of person. It's really, really embarrassing.

I dreamt about joining the wrong zoom call. I suddenly was in a presentation at a big conference. Staring dumbfounded at thousands of people from a big screen. And they were all staring back at me. And the presenting person was quite surprised to see me instead of their slides. Very weird.

Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.

"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"why?"
"i don't want you to drop it"
"why?"
"It's made of glass, and if you drop a glass thing it can break"
"why?"
"because glass is brittle"
"why?"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"why?"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"why?"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
"why?"

You know what we need to bring back? Tunics. They’re a better summer option than either shorts or dresses because 1) shorts are nonsense wear and 2) not everyone wants to wear a dress, but a tunic combines the chill androgyny of shorts with the nether-ventilation of dresses. We could wear them Roman-style with a belt and sandals. WHO’S WITH ME.
