No Idea


Writing at Ars Technica, Jonathan M. Gitlin on the launch of the Cybertruck has this great reason to buy a vehicle,

Musk implied that in a crash with another vehicle, the Cybertruck—which weighs 6,603–6,843 lbs (2,995–3,104 kg)—will destroy the other vehicle.


I just saw an Instagram Reel that described the Midwest, as being just like the South but with more meat.


Amazing moon tonight.


I’ve been scrolling Instagram Reels lately and 2/3rds are people selling “passive income generators” that are basically ‘resell cheap shit for a small profit’ or ‘use AI to create digital goods for a small profit’.

If you add a bunch of crap to a bunch of crap; all you get is more crap.

Pixel Envy, Nick Heer: Smart Mattress Topper CEO Reminds Everyone His Company Collects Customers’ Sleep Data

Everyone deserves privacy, including people who buy $2,000 mattress toppers.

Did anyone in this post stop and look at the company’s website? It’s not a surprise that data is collected. It’s not a gotcha issue. They’re not trying to hide the fact.


Why natural prairies didn’t have dust bowls.


Man, those are some long roots.

When ‘Viral’ doesn’t mean viral because the media is full of olds

Yet Another ‘Social Media Trend’ That Only Went Viral Because Of The Media


Nick Heer at Pixel Envy,

An Apple product announcement is now fully a sales pitch…

They have always been a sales pitch.

All announcements or introductions or demos or anything involving new products, from any company, is a sales pitch. Apple’s change from live to pre recorded events doesn’t change the fact that they are a sales pitch.


Today in stupid headlines:

Snapchat and NYX launch new beauty filter that’s also a stealth shopping tool

Protip: It’s all a shopping tool. Even if they say it’s not. It is. If it’s paid for by ads, it’s a shopping tool.


Antidepressants or Tolkien

I couldn’t even muster 50%.

The magic you’re looking for is in the work you’re avoiding.

– Chris Williamson

Um, yeah, fuck no.

The magic I’m looking for is avoiding my work.


New Holiday Unlocked.

Soup Day.

Soup Day

Can’t wait.



Not a bad day to do some yard work.

Now I think it’s time for a nap.


TIL - they make crop hoodies.

I do not understand this piece of clothing.


Well, isn’t this just a fantastic photo by Alexander Wieck

Remember when we were going to ban TikTok because of China spying?


Henry Rollins on the song Bottom by Tool

If I let you, you would make me destroy myself
In order to survive you, I must first survive myself
I can sink no further, and I cannot forgive you

There’s no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you
I’ve gone to great length to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you, there’s no other choice
I’m shameless now, I’m nameless now, I’m nothing now, I’m no one now
But my soul must be iron ‘cause my fear is naked
I’m naked and fearless and my fear is naked


My favorite calendar of the year is back on Kickstarter for their 2024 version.

Minimalist Wall Calendar

Love the idea of seeing the entire year all at once.

Back the project here


Today in headlines that annoy me

U.S. Officials Fear American Guns Ordered by Israel Could Fuel West Bank Violence

You fear violence in Israel because of guns, but you don’t do anything about the violence in America caused by guns.

Got it. Makes sense. Total sense.


Tell me the mobile web ate the internet without telling me the mobile web ate the internet.


I love it when we get zero trick or treaters. The power of turning off the porch light is strong in this house.
