I am SO fucking called out by the outfit comment
[ID: post by tumblr user phantomrose96. it reads:
PSA to anyone who’s thinking about adopting devs. I’ve noticed a huge rise in popularity of devs lately and there are some tips yall NEED to know:
For starters, if you notice your devs start making a lot of random, unnecessary, aggravating UX changes to your website: such as palette changes, button rearrangement, sometimes just deleting entire features. This is a sign your dev does not have enough enrichment in their enclosure. They will resort to these self-destructive behaviors if they are not properly cared for!! This is a serious problem that not many website owners seem to acknowledge. Your devs are living beings, and though you think it might be cute to have them program your website, you need to be responsible for them. Without proper stimulation and enrichment and guidance in their environment they will start ordering posts by popularity, instead of in chronological order.
Devs need reliable project management in their lives, I cannot stress this enough. Engineers cannot reason out good aesthetic design like most people can! Their brains are logic-driven and they wear the same three outfits in rotation every day, they do not understand UI design. “Well my family had a dev growing up and they designed our wesbite just fine.” I’m tired of hearing excuses like this. It just gives other people a pass to mistreat their devs. Don’t do this.
Furthermore, devs need at least two full-sized monitors, a well-maintained team git repo, and a fully stocked snack bowl. Devs are grazers who eat chips and pretzels while actively doing their work. You can’t expect devs to abide by certain meal times. (Their natural habitat is in soggy basements with mothers providing doritos and snacks, so they need similar care in your home). Also, the old wives’ tale about devs needing rubber ducks in their environment is actually just a myth – any inanimate object to yell at will do just fine.
Please spread this. So so so many people are trying to run websites without the slightest idea how to keep a happy, healthy dev. It breaks my heart to see mishandled devs, who should be great additions to any website, instead end up turning on high-contrast mode permanently, removing pictures of sand dunes and babies with a broken p0rn detecting AI, and sometimes just deleting entire users, features, and posts accidentally. This is not cute. Do not get a dev if you cannot care for them properly. This has been a PSA.
stella also overhaul time/space words
all now v predictable :)
more important, only two syllable! not three!
stella actually got ... lot of pattern which hope make easy
question word end in -bi, time/space follow O-I-A pattern :
NO is past/far, NI is now/in, NA is future/near
TO is before/under, TI is between, TA is after/over
labi is where, mebi is when
drop bi & add require syllable
meta = after
lano = far away
lato = under, below
oh i like this a lot
are labi/mebi culturally/phonetically grouped with the other wh-word-counterparts (bi words?) like in english?
chaz is really funny to me personally because one of my camp councellors was named chaz
#and his speech last year about his experiences being named a spirit (camper leadership role) basically singlehandedly changed the tide and convinced everyone to agree to abolish it #chaz the camp councellor lending his name and hopefully his persuasive talents to the cause #camp #chaz #meposting1 note
im classifying you as one of my favorite bands based on my shallow assumptions and your limited choices
yeah, there is really no complicated thought process behind this...
and I don't even know the bands that well.
I talk about magic in the answers but I am not an actual magic-user, I just made everything up since the answers are more like short fictional works if it makes sense. anyway, just don't take this seriously, there is nothing to take!
Like. Okay I don't want to go on about this too much, but this has been bothering me for a while. Related to my last post.
So I googled some things. No details for obvious reasons. Didn't find anything, then again I didn't have much to go on. Could have asked my mom, but it's hard on her to talk about it, so she doesn't know.
I never once got adds or reccomends or anything about adoption in my life. Guess what suddenly popped up more often? Yep.
Lots of stuff about england too, but that was a bit less surprising seeing as I'm interested and googling stuff about other countries either way. The weird part was that it was almost exclusively stuff about London (her last known location, as far as I know).
Now I'm not a huge tinfoil hat person, but I know shit like that is happening and why those very, oddly, specific things suddenly decided to be there, and it's unnerving at best and downright terrifying at worst.
Maybe I'm taking this too personally but it's. So weird. I'd be lying if I said I didn't hate it.
Ooh I'll have to look up the tumblr post I've seen more than a few times. But yeah, no, like, there are so many corporations that have access to the data you create when you use the internet. Your search results are sold to ad companies who pay for most of our free services on the internet and in tern get to personalize how they advertise to you (google is kind of really bad about this on all fronts).
There are ways to get around it though. You could go tin foil and nuke everything, but there are smaller steps you can take. Look up how to depersonalize googles advertising to you. I wanna say theres a whole site you can use to mass opt-out of this garbage.
Secondly, and what I find more fascinating is extentions for firefox (and chrome, but please just.... stop using that wholesale if you serious about caring about your informational privacy) that intentionally obscure the data you put out there. I know theres one that creates fake "clicks" to advertisements and creates fake search results so any agency trying to create a file on you cant parse between real and fake information (this is a huge problem with big data right now, google, facebook, amazon, governments, they dont know what to do with it! Like at all. The technology just isn't there yet among algorithms. They can barely sort all that data much less judge the validity of it).
when i encounter animals in the outdoors i talk to them very politely. i saw a frog the other day and it startled me and i said "oh! excuse me"
PLEASE SIGN PETITIONS, DONATE, CALL AND EMAIL TO DEMAND JUSTICE, AND SHARE Stop sharing videos of Black people being murdered. “Seeing all sides” doesn’t mean watching someone’s murder. Believe Black people. It’s gratuitous and exploitative. Imagine being his kin right now. ACAB BLM carrd BLM ...
alright how the fuck do yall write your numbers put it in the comments
I put effort into making these at least a little bit neat but it's usually 10x scruffier
I take NOTES not write
I messed up drawing the 6 and didn't feel like re-doing it so take that as you will. also, how I do '1's vary depending on how fast I'm writing, if I need to differenciate the 1 from other, similar symbols, or if I'm being purposeful. sometimes it's a line, sometimes it's got the thing at the top and the line at the bottom
Made them a few times so the real ones would show
handwriting tag................ as the prophets foresaw.................................
and without a guiding line:
N Harmonica: [capslocked keysmash]
N Harmonica: please connect the 9 it looks like a 4 but CANON.
Kiddo: im sorry it does NOT look like a 4
N Harmonica: YES IT DOES
Kiddo: how the fuck do you draw 4s
N Harmonica: [photo of a handwritten 4. it looks similar to a 9]
Kiddo: [photo of numbers 1-9 written. the 4 is written like a capital L with a vertical line through it]
N Harmonica: fancy bitch
N Harmonica: you actively saw other kids drawing their 2s and 4s and 7s like that and said "i want to look fancy too"
Kiddo: [picture of a 4 drawn like a right triangle with tails off either side of the right angle corner. the number is labeled "alt"]
Kiddo: SHUT UP
N Harmonica: too slow to draw!
Kiddo: I WANT MY SEVENS TO HAVE LITTLE ARMS IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK
N Harmonica: FANCY BITCH
N Harmonica: PRETENTIOUS
Kiddo: what about this huh this make your blood fucking boil
Kiddo: [picture of a 0 drawn with a diagonal line through it]
N Harmonica: IM SURPRISED YOU DONT ADD ON THE STUFF TO THE 1- I. HATE YOU.
Kiddo: YOU KNOW WHAT CAT? SOMETIMES I DO ADD THE LITTLE THINGS TO THE 1
Kiddo: THE LITTLE HAT
N Harmonica: OH YOU BREAK ITS NECK?
N Harmonica: YOU BREAK THE 1'S NECK?
N Harmonica: VILLAIN.
Kiddo: NO IT IS A HAT HES WEARING CLOTHES
N Harmonica: YOU WALKED UP AND SNAPPED ITS FUCKING NECK NOW ITS HEAD IS DANGLING LIMPLY OFF TO THE LEFT
N Harmonica: YOU ARE A VIOLENT NUMBER DRAWER
Kiddo: you are just jealous my number look more fun, fancy and fresh than yours
N Harmonica: your numbers make you look like you have a trust fund
Kiddo: SHUT UP!
N Harmonica: NOT ALL OF US HAVE THE TIME TO ADD ON THINGS TO OUR NUMBERS! SOME OF US HAVE TO WORK HARD!
Kiddo: SOMETIMES I LIKE TO INJECT A LITTLE FUN INTO WORKING HARD BY TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW A FUN NUMBER!
N Harmonica: VILLAIN.
i started keeping a journal in 11th grade and i've been flagging recently but i'm trying to get back into it bc it's probably good to write stuff down these days when everything kinda looks the same. my handwriting's gotten way worse tho
ive considered trying to get samples of my handwriting and put them into a document so i can see if i can identify what shapes refer to which letters consistently to make it easier to decypher. would take a lot of scanning tho
my "g"s and my "s"s look almost the same because i use a cursive g and can't be bothered to take my pen off the page between letters. also, "ing" has become a completely separate glyph
#its like the opposite of the "sometimes we use "f"s instead of "s"s but other times we do use "s"s" thing where we just use the same shape to mean two different letters #kinda worried that one day my handwriting is going to be a completely new system and no one's gonna be able to decypher it #i mean im already creating my own spellings of some words #meposting #asks #about me #handwriting #journaling #maybe someone should start a handwriting tag here #i wrote this ask like 2 days ago i just keep forgetting to post it during the daytime #naiad1 note
Why isn't watermelon on pizza a thing? It tastes almost the same as pineapple.
What is your Runalong I must know. I know I'm not the only one ok I swear,, i hope ;;
Mine kinda changes depending on the time of the day jkdsfjs- like if it's dark outside and the streetlights are on, it would kinda blend in with the lights. The lights are aliveeee.
mine were cats! not even cool shadowy cats or anything asdfghjkl they were just. cats XD
Negl, mine were usually my Pokemon team at the time. Esp my Staraptor
mine was Alf on a skateboard
It's hard to put these things into words. They move like spiders.
i dont remember doing this but i know exactly how they move so maybe i did
craving human connection so i listen to podcasts made by people who don't know about cutting down the recording so i get to hear them fucking up when reading off their scripts and going "doot doot doot doot doo..... ah here we are"
ive been trying to post pics about the plants growing in my dirt cup (cup of dirt i stole from the permaculture garden outside the dining hall) for over a month now
there are two wolves inside me, one says "you should really go eat a proper meal" the other says "but there's a homemade peanut butter cup in the freezer" and the first is trying to convince the other that we can just eat the peanut butter cup after the proper meal
I got ORANGE GAY... what type of gay are you?
i'm vibe checking all of you and you have no say in the matter
Red gay, accurate
*boulevard of broken dreams starts playing*
the best word to summarize you is passion. you feel things very strongly, and can be all-or-nothing with emotions. people often describe you as intense, which also has to do with your competitive nature. despite coming off as intimidating a lot, you don’t mean to seem that way, and actually crave connection and intimacy. it’s difficult for you to trust people enough to achieve that, though. not everyone gets to see your more relaxed and friendly side, but when you do let people in, you hang onto them with everything you have. you match best with blue and green gays.
for like a day and a half after we met i didnt know if one of my friends was a lesbian (he's a cis bi dude)
took organ lessons last summer, would love to get back into that just as soon as i have access to a keyboard
when i was little i thought the song "michael row your boat ashore" was about a kid i went to school with named michael
when i was little i when my mom said "look you can see orion" i thought she meant my friend orion and then i thought that the constellation of orion was somehow related to my friend orion
brian david gilbert quarantine video look quality alignment chart (with secret third content axis) id under cut
the first screenshot is from "building your online brand" and shows brian david gilbert facing frontward, smiling unsettlingly. He has a terrible middle part, sleeked down near-shoulder-length hair, an awful painted-on goatee, and a tan suit that makes his head look slightly too small. henceforth, this is brand gilbert.
the second screenshot is from "PEPCORN: a cooking video" and shows brian david gilbert looking over his shoulder with a friendly smile. His hair is swept in a wave over his head from a part at his temple, and he is wearing a black long-sleeved shirt and an extremely good leopard-print fluffy long hooded vest. henceforth, this is pep gilbert.
the third screenshot is from "it's time to get good at the darts" and shows brian david gilbert smiling at the camera cheerily. his hair is parted again at the temple, but is a bit messier. he is wearing a grey short-sleeved shirt. henceforth, this is darts gilbert.
the first image shows an alignment axis. the horizontal axis is labeled "hairstyle quality" and ranges from brand gilbert to pep gilbert. the vertical axis is labeled "outfit quality" and ranges from brand gilbert to pep gilbert.
the second image shows the same image from the first, but compressed to be half as wide. a third axis has been added, labelled on one end "benevolent chaotic energy" with darts gilbert, and on the other end "malevolent chaotic energy" with brand gilbert. in addition, a line has been drawn between a brand gilbert and a pep gilbert, with the line continuing past pep gilbert and ending at text reading "if only BDG had grown a quarantine moustache by now". this line is labeled "facial hair quality"
the third image is the same as the second, but with another pep gilbert placed up in the corner beyond darts gilbert showing that pep gilbert has extremely benevolent chaotic energy, and with another darts gilbert placed at neutral outfit quality and pretty good (but not as good as pep gilbert) hairstyle quality.
