I read this, dismissing it as overreaction over nothing, but then it kind of kept me from sleeping.

I kept thinking about the email.

There's something that really pissed this person off, and it's got nothing to do with the webring.

I kindda get where they're coming from, if my studies, my work and my personal time goes into learning something, and then some other thing(like a silly webring) dismisses it all at once. I might be fucking pissed.

Hmmm this is interesting. I wonder if there was some sort of ideological change in the ruling class

@masklayer if elements are bumping against the edge, you might get away with styling the svg element with "overflow: visible;"

@rek I have Tunneler's expression whenever I do dishes

cats are universally gross and bad πŸ–€ 

I'm lucky to have both these creatures around me and my wife at all times. I also really wish that one of them hadn't scratched up my arms in terror at the vet that one time, and then covered the whole the room in liquid feces.

My beefy cat is a certified asshole who craves attention. I'm convinced that every bad habit he ever adopted remains in his repertoire, waiting for the right conditions for him to resort to. When my wife has a bad day, he rushes to her side to cheer her up, which is honestly very endearing. Also he shredded her favorite chair.

@slisne Your cat and my cat are, to coin a phrase, turds of a feather

cats are universally gross and bad πŸ–€ 

My tiny cat (runt munchkin, smaller than a loaf of bread) is afraid of everything and always will be, but she's grown to overcome her fears. She also likes to projectile vomit from high places, which increases her AOE. She never meows, so now I have a lifelong mission to encourage her to meow, as if I don't have plenty of other shit I gotta do.

Tonight I replaced my cats' robot-rake litter tray with a new one, and have a cat-pee-odor headache a mile wide. I probably broke the Geneva convention on myself just now.

Let's be honest: cats are disgusting, vile pests, that turn dirty smelly pellets into other dirty smelly pellets, damage furniture, interrupt video calls and vomit on all our important things. Humanity's shared history with cats has been a gargantuan misstep.

I also love them tremendously.

@ciel @Lambdanaut agreed, this is bizarre.

I wonder if it's reproducible on a device with substantially different graphics hardware?

Mental health, overworking 

@tomupom @Lutrinus I'm in the same boat. I came here to complain about my brain, and you've beaten me to the punch.

I can forgive myself for not working on the dozen side projects I want to complete. With the other things going on in the world and my life, I can cut myself a lot of slack.

But not in the context of my 9-to-5, upon which my family's life depends. And when I falter in that domain, my inner critic enters fucking Beast Mode.

Anyway you're not alone! πŸ˜…
