the cool thing of not having a cabinet is that rutte does not have the option of blaming it on someone else

rutte really keeps just mashing A in cutscenes over here, always the dialog option "I do not have specific memories of that event"

It’s funny how Y2K is remembered as an overblown hoax and not as “for fucking once we saw a problem coming in advance, actually dedicated sufficient time and resources to solving it, and a crisis was averted before it happened.” Makes me wonder how people would think of Covid if we had handled it well.

non-vegetarian food mention 

bone meal (like real meal but is bone)
bone meal (not real meal do not eat)

if this year the Sinterklaasjournaal doesn't have the Pakjesboot getting stuck in some sort of canal, we riot

from an informal estimate, our household downloads about 1 - 2 GB of data on a typical day: surfing, photos, videos, video calls. an 36 TB array of disks is about $1000, and it would take about 50 years to fill it.

so assuming that the 2 GB is all on the web, the array actually stays working for 50 years and i wrote the appropriate programs: i'd never have to worry about any of my links rotting for about 5 cents per day!

here's how i became the repairperson of this household:

1. know righty tighty, lefty loosy
2. put screws in a consistent order when you remove them
3. be incapable of fearing that you will break something

i saw this and now you must see it too 


@Vierkantor The US state of New Mexico is older than the modern-day country of Mexico

Did you know; in the country Mexico, there is a state officially called Mexico and a city called Mexico. Mexico is in Mexico but not in Mexico. Mexico and Mexico are typically called Mexico but Mexico isn't, although Mexico is the only of the three whose official name is "Mexico".

Mastodon is a server for a federated social network: everyone can run a server if they want to, including me. So this is a Mastodon server for me (Vierkantor) and my friends.
