    One day there's this kid in school. Him and his class are in the library, reading. Unfortunately he forgot his book! So he asked the teacher what to do and the teacher told him to read the dictionary. So he's reading the dictionary, looking up all the words, laughing at words like poop and stuff and then he stumbles on a word with no definintion. Obviously, he's really confused by this so he asks his teacher what to do. The teacher is like "Hmmm, thats weird, whats the word?" and the kid says "Snuffleupagus".

    Immediately, the teacher kicks him out of class and sends him to the principals office.

    Now in the principals office, the kid is all confused and crying a ton. The principal is confused too and asks him "Hey, yknow, you're a good kid. I'm not too sure why you're in here" and the kid responds "Well, I was in library class and forgot my book and the teacher told me to read the dictionary. So i was reading the dictionary and I found a word that doesn't have a definition, so I asked her about it and she asked me the word and I told her and she kicked me out of class" The principal is taken aback, very confused as to what has transpired here, so he asked "What's the word?" and the kid is like "Weeelll, I don't know if I want to tell you..." the principal responds "Look, I just want to help." And then the kid responds "Ok, the word is Snuffleupagus"

    Immediately, the principal expels him from the school and calls his parents to take him home.

    So now the kid is going home, all confused, all sad. Nobody talks until they're about 10 minutes away from their house and suddenly, the dad pipes up and asks "Well, what happened today? You've never got in trouble before and now you're expelled!" and the kid responds "Well, I was in library class and forgot my book and the teacher told me to read the dictionary. So i was reading the dictionary and I found a word that doesn't have a definition, so I asked her about it and she asked me the word and I told her and she kicked me out of class and sent me to the principals office, then the principal asked me the word and I told him and he expelled me from school" And the dad is shocked, "Well thats really weird, what was the word?" and the kid responds "Weeeellll, I don't know if I wanna tell you, everyone really freaks out when I say it" and the dad is like "Kid, listen, I'm your dad, we can figure this out together" so the kid is like "Ok" and tells him the word.

    Immediately, the dad stops on the side of the road and kicks the kid out of the family.

    Now the kid is really confused, he's walking around the streets at night, all alone. Around 4am a cop sees him and stops him. The cop asks "What are you doing out here so late?" and the kid responds "Well, I was in library class and forgot my book and the teacher told me to read the dictionary. So i was reading the dictionary and I found a word that doesn't have a definition, so I asked her about it and she asked me the word and I told her and she kicked me out of class and sent me to the principals office, then the principal asked me the word and I told him and he expelled me from school. Then on the way home my dad asked what the word was and I told him and he kicked me out of the family." The cop stops in his tracks. This is very intriguing. So the cop asks what any person would ask in this scenario "What was the word?" and the kid is like "Weeeeelllll, I don't know if I wanna tell you, everyone freaks out when I say it" and the cop responds "Look, I'm an officer of the law and I feel like one was broken here. We're gonna help you out but I need to know what I'm working with" and the kid responds "Ok... the word was Snuffleupagus"

    Immediately, the cop throws him in the back of the patrol car and sends him to jail.

    About 6 days pass, the kid is a mess. He's in jail for some reason, and its now time for him to go to trial. The judge immediately asks "I'm really confused, you're 4 years old, what are you doing here?" and the kid responds "Well, I was in library class and forgot my book and the teacher told me to read the dictionary. So i was reading the dictionary and I found a word that doesn't have a definition, so I asked her about it and she asked me the word and I told her and she kicked me out of class and sent me to the principals office, then the principal asked me the word and I told him and he expelled me from school. Then on the way home my dad asked what the word was and I told him and he kicked me out of the family. So I was walking around at night and a cop stops me and asks me what I'm doing there and I told him the story and then he asked me the word and I told him and he arrested me!" The Judge is taken aback, very confused. "This is a huge miscarriage of justice. Appaling. What was the word?" and the kid is like "Weeeeeellllll, I don't know if I wanna tell you, last time I did I was thrown in jail." and the Judge says "Look, you don't belong here, help me out and I can help you" and the kid responds "Ok... the word is Snuffleupagus."

    Immediately, the kid is sentenced to 30 years in jail

    30 years later, the kid is now an adult and is on the streets again. His family doesn't want to see him, and he has no friends left from elementary school. So he's walking down the street and meets this homeless guy. The homeless guy starts talking to him about his story, and he eventually asks the kid "Enough about me, what about you? How did you get right here?" and the kid responds "Well, I was in library class and forgot my book and the teacher told me to read the dictionary. So i was reading the dictionary and I found a word that doesn't have a definition, so I asked her about it and she asked me the word and I told her and she kicked me out of class and sent me to the principals office, then the principal asked me the word and I told him and he expelled me from school. Then on the way home my dad asked what the word was and I told him and he kicked me out of the family. So I was walking around at night and a cop stops me and asks me what I'm doing there and I told him the story and then he asked me the word and I told him and he arrested me! Then in court, the judge asked the word and I told him and he sentenced me to 30 years in jail" The homeless guy is suprised "That sounds like what happened to me! What was the word?" The kid, deciding he has nothing to lose, tells him "The word is Snuffleupagus" The homeless guy cheers! "That was my word too! I actually found the definition. It's inside an old book at the church a couple blocks from here!" The kid is shocked, and excited to finally learn what it means. He thanks the homeless guy and starts crossing the street to get to the church. Immediately upon stepping into the street he gets hit by a bus.

    I stole this from a CS:GO surf server at 3am and I can't stop thinking about it

    I've been playing a lot of Heat Signature lately. It's a little indie game from the maker of Gunpoint where you're basically a space pirate. It has the sort of emergent gameplay of Breath of the Wild but in a much more spartan way. It is still incredibly fun!

    I've been listening to a lot of electronic music recently, and I came across Laugh Track by Buku
    I think this is by far the weirdest song I've ever found, but for some reason I like it!
    In terms of normal music, its been So American - Portugal. The Man and Divinity (ODESZA Remix) - Porter Robinson, and I've also started listening to Exist - Space Jesus again. Other than songs like that, I'm still blasting Hi This Is Flume

    Sure! So basically I have a couple playlists that separate out into the best stuff (that I enjoy) for each of my main genres (Rap, Chill Electronic, Classic Rock, etc.). My main playlist is all of these combined + ones I couldn't really categorize. It also makes it super easy to download the music I like because its all in one playlist.
    Another thing to add, with the exception of Rap, they're not actually sorted by genre but like "mood" almost. Chill songs go in one playlist, high intensity in another and so on. I just like Rap the most so there's a lot of that.
    edit: heres a link to said playlist. Some songs wont show up because I had to upload them tho (mainly 3030)

    OS: Windows 10 (idk what build, i've done a lot of weird registry hacks to turn off windows update)
    Browser: Chrome - I know about privacy and whatever, but I haven't been able to find a browser I like more than Chrome currently.
    Cloud: G Suite - Google provides unlimited storage space for $12/mo (you need a domain) so you can't really go wrong there. It's not encrypted, however
    Text Editors: Unironically Notepad for quick edits, Brackets for webdesign, Atom or VSCode for everything else.
    Office Suite: MS Office 2016 - I got it for free from college and it never expired, but I'm not complaining
    Image Editor: Paint for really easy stuff, PicPick for less easy stuff, Photoshop for everything else
    Gaming: Steam - I also have a switch for Smash Bros
    Passwords: KeePass - I don't like some company having a list of all my passwords. I know its encrypted but it puts me off.
    Music: Google Play Music Desktop Player - I have some Rainmeter plugins to control it and I really like how customizable it is
    Messaging: Discord - I switched from Teamspeak and Skype and I do not regret it. add me! stormy#0001
    Editing: For audio I use Audacity, for video I used HitFilm 4
    Other cool stuff: I have a program called Wox which basically is an enhanced Spotlight Search from macOS. Pretty neat. It integrates with Everything (the search program) which I also highly recommend

    My full music library is too big and filled with random sound effects, so I'll do my main playlist instead:

    1. Exist - Space Jesus
      I quite enjoy this song, but I listened to it too much a while back. Still Enjoyable
    2. Divide - ODESZA
      i still really like this song, sad ODESZA hasn't really released much after this album, but its still a good one
    3. Daydream/Wetdream/Nightmare - Saint Motel
      cool vibey song
    4. 3030 - Deltron 3030
      I could talk for hours on what a cool project Deltron 3030 was, but I'll save you all. Do give it a listen tho! It's one of my favorite rap groups
    5. Friends - Flume
      I could also talk for hours about how Flume makes music. Theres something about his mixing ways that just grabs me.

    One of my favorite but often overlooked features of Relay for Reddit is mapping the volume keys to go to the next parent comment in a thread. It's so convenient.

    I actually really enjoy SimCity (2013). I disliked the small city sizes, but other than that the game was solid. The customizable building layouts were awesome.

    I've been listening to the Minecraft soundtrack funnily enough (volume alpha, at least). It's actually a really good soundtrack! There's an almost melancholy feel to it, but it still manages to be bright and upbeat. Good album!
