    Sorry for the lack of more thorough source than TBT, there’s loads out there but I’m on a phone and out of the country.

    I don’t get it, how is he pulling the “stored” heat back out? Brick cools slowly but not that slowly that it’s a 98 percent efficient process over any meaningful period.

    I'm sad. It's an acquisition that makes a lot of sense, don't get me wrong, but I especially use Figma not just because it's a good product but to actively avoid giving Adobe money… fuck

    Personal opinion, I'm not @vord:

    The alcohol culture of today is idiotic. People who get super drunk to the point of blackout / hangover / vomiting / etc is just ... what on earth is enjoyable about vomiting, exactly? It fucks up your health and fucks up your brain and makes you feel like shit.

    I drink sometimes (socially only), I get high when I feel like it, and I know my body and my alcohols well enough to know how to maximize how "good" I feel with alcohol (which is a tipsy-high I can get with some liqueurs).

    Learning all this took me a while. But it started with under-consumption, not over-consumption. And it comes with the hard requirement of not being surrounded by morons who shit on you if you order a coke or a virgin cocktail.

    I'm not a parent but I hope that when I am, and my kids are old enough, I can teach them how to drink in a sustainable way that doesn't lead to psychological or physical health issues.
