a friend of mine who spends a LOT of his time picking up plastic waste from parks, rivers, streets, etc. had a good idea. He decided to photograph the non biodegradable waste and tag companies on social media with it. So if he finds a plastic Subway cup, he tells Subway about it with the message "is this yours?" I dig this because it's not something that blames the consumer. It puts the blame where it belongs: on the producer.
thinking of creating a storage medium for hipsters that uses a rapidly spinning "platter" with a needle to read and write data sequentially, suffers from long "spin-up" delays, consumes power when idle unless turned off, performs horribly at random reading and writing, needs to be defragmented to ensure the health and performance of the drive, makes audible whirring when in use, and can be permanently damaged by running a magnet over them or getting dust on the platters
@bryn @brogepi this story is the big beefy bumbly rumbler's swively leg midjoints
@brogepi my sisters used to get in trouble for doing weird shit with autocorrect on the family computer and one time one of them made "bee" autocorrect to "big beefy bumbly rumbler" and the other handed in a science project without realising that had happened and the teacher handed it back with that phrase circled and annotated only "?" but uhh the point of this was that i think this *is* the big beefy bumbly rumbler
I bet people who want to run software on hardened BSD say "this, but iron-unically" a lot
