    I think it's really fucking cool that Valve did this. Sheever is one of the oldest members of the Dota 2 community, and if anyone deserves a segment like this, it's her.

    I’d say I’m an extroverted introvert. I love talking and meeting new people, and I’d say I’m pretty social and charismatic. It just tires me out like a motherfucker.

    As an example, I was recently at a 4 day convention. Day 1 and 2, I went to every party and met actually dozens of people. Day 3, I hung out with a crowd I’d already met and went back to the same party as day 2. Day 4, was fucking exhausted of meeting new people, so I just chilled with some closer people for drinks.

    This is pretty spot on to how I feel.

    I used to pirate games regularly, but Steam changed that. Convenience was worth the price for me.

    I’m waiting for the same thing for movies now. Give me the option to download movies in 4K, non-DRM formats that I can add to my Plex server, and I’ll gladly pay for them. Until then, I keep flying the black flag.

    No sarcasm or anything in the question. I learned git by using the command line, and I never felt the need for a 'real' UI. What can this offer that just using git commands doesn't?

    Just got into Realm Royale.

    Really enjoying the game right now, it's a BR game with reduced RNG that incentivizes fighting early, because crafting your best weapon requires killing players.

    But, in classic Hi-Rez fashion, they're fucking it up next patch by increasing RNG and removing said player trophies, thus removing incentive to fight early.

    Not sure how many metal fans there are here. This is one of my favourite bands. Great vocals, catchy melodies, and their lyrics are fantastic (though, unfortunately, in Romanian :P)

    He's the director a gun lobbying group. The context is that he was advocating that children aged 4 and older should be taught to use guns to protect their peers from school shootings (dubbed "Kinderguardians), and he was tricked into reading some made-up scientific mumbojumbo full of terms like that.

    I find it hilarious. I really don't think there's any groudbreaking social commentary or anything going on, it's just some well done satire, like Borat and Bruno. When he asked Cheney to sign the waterboarding kit, I was in tears.

    Most surprising is how civil some people can be. I fully expected him to be able to trick people into doing stupid shit. I didn't expect so many people to remain so calm and civil while he acted so outrageous (eg: art gallery lady, republican+rapper, republican family at dinner)

    Depends on the topic/work. If I get really into a programming project that I enjoy and am interested in, it might get to the point where I skip out on meals without realizing to power through a multihour programming session.

    If I need to fix the same fucking team's jenkins for the fourth time this month, my eyes are glazing over and I'm spending just as much time browsing Reddit as I am debugging.

    Plus, she was against tattoos, and I've been thinking about getting a piece like this since before I met her. So that's one positive :D

    Summer started pretty shittily. I broke up with someone I loved, and have been dealing with that. It's been a difficult two months being alone for the first time in almost 3 years.

    But hey, things are looking up. Got a raise coming up after my next paycheck, and I just got my first tattoo by one of the best artists in my city, and it looks fucking sick

    Oh hey, I love this dude's art. I've got a shirt with this design on it. It passes as some abstract reference to most people, so I don't look like a total nerd wearing it.
