Is kidsplained a thing? Cuz I think I was on the receiving end of it.

Yes you smart-aleck I know what an ARG is.

Grumble, grumble, get off my lawn!

Coworker: Hey, do you know how to do this weird obscure thing? I forgot how.

Me: Why are you doing that? You should be doing this other thing.

C: Oh yea, right. I've been doing that all the other times, I just forgot this time.

M: ....

Super believable.

Here in the United States, April 16th is National Stress Awareness Day. I'm not sure what this is for. Trust me, I'm VERY aware of my stress. All the time. I don't need a day set aside for that.
This is too cool not to share! Fully customizable laptop that allows for all of the parts to be replaced/upgraded

A coworker today said out loud with a straight face, "These core dumps are massive".

This is the kind of website I strive to design one day

We shouldn't discriminate between Linux distros, but rather celebrate that you are using Linux. In the end, we are all using the same kernel.

And no, I haven't tried emacs. I found vim and stuck with it.

Sometime I want to make a bot that toots lines from the Angular docs.

For example, this gem:

"The target name is the name of a property. It may look like the name of an attribute but it never is. To appreciate the difference, you must develop a new way to think about template HTML."

There was a fairly large spider on my co-workers desk. Two web developers at one desk is technically pair programming, right?

Thank you @ryan for providing a solid frontend foundation for the STAT site. Even a hack like me can make frontend changes without having to reinvent the wheel.

TIL about tldr. I wish I'd known about this when I was starting out in the terminal.

Christmas music? December 20-26.

Eggnog? All year long as far as I'm concerned.
