What percentage of English words contain the letter "e", anyway

I had a dream last night that I was on QI with @owashii. For some reason I said "Can we please stop talking about grandma soup?" No, that's not a typo.

Did you know that you can prevent most superspreader events by simply not having large indoor gatherings during a pandemic? So easy!

The CO2 levels in *regular meetings* has been shown to reach levels where judgment is impacted if they go on longer than ~1 hour. There is probably *already* research going on into how to solve this.

Also filters to keep out future SARS-CoV-2 strains and the like, of course.

Capitalist dystopia prediction: future office buildings will have "custom" interior air mixtures with decreased CO2, slightly increased oxygen, and, if costs permit, some of the nitrogen replaced with inert gasses like neon, krypton or argon. The end result is that the air is more "energizing" (and healthier too), leading to an subtle positive stimulus associated with being in the office, whereas being outside or at home the stimulus is absent.

I'm always amused when people try to insult me by calling me a commie. Like. You realize the red scare was fearmongering, right? I don't like many of the things the USSR did but I also recognize that they didn't actually reach communism either.

Every asshole who complains about Calarts style just because of the mouth should be forcibly exposed to how every anime characters' mouths don't make any physical sense when they're talking in a side view.

@owashii oh yeah and I was using a spoon to pour the kibble. There was a spout in the handle.

I woke up from a dream that @owashii and another friend from our high school were harmonizing in some mournful song just out of nowhere while I was pouring more kibble for my cat. Also Owa was Strong Bad too. Dreams are weird.

Remember when I used to write software

Y'ALL, so, does your phone only charge/connect if you Wiggle It Right, no matter what cable you use? Mine was.

Turns out this is very often caused by progressive compaction of lint into the bottom of the port, so the connector isn't able to seat properly.

If you get in there with a safety pin or something, you can pick the lint out. It's slow and you'll probably need a flashlight to see down in there, but it works. Keep digging until you see metal.

Looking for housing by the end of the month (California Bay Area), boosts much appreciated :boost_requested: 

Hey, so!

We're uhhh getting kicked out at the end of the month. >,,<

We have no money and nowhere to go. We can't drive, and public transport in the rest of the country seems basically nonexistent, so we have to stay in bus range of the BART train system. But anywhere within that should work equally well.
