US politics and videogames 

So AOC streamed Among Us and Biden, in a very "how do you do, fellow kids" moment made a AC:NH island. I guess you know your game's become a part of history when politicians are using it for their campaigns

Every youtuber: Youtube is really hard to break into. It's takes a lot to get a big video

Me: writes complex regexes

Of course, this is also the same team that brought you the SQL interface to S3 (yes that's a real thing)

Apparently if you copy something using S3, it can return a 200 ok response and still fail. Their docs basically tell you to 'deal with it'. I'm not sure if it's comforting to know they suck at designing interfaces too or terrifying.

My wife started searching for her too and we looked in every place we could think of with no luck. We called out her name and even tried the 'jiggle the treat bag' trick all with no luck. I even searched our garage and backyard.

I was about 5 minutes from calling up my parents and organizing a search party when I checked our bedroom closet. The little jerk had been sitting in there with the door closed the entire time. She just looked up at me like 'What?'

So fun story, I thought my cat ran way. Turns out she's just really good at hiding.

Some back story: every night I have to give my cat a small syringe of prozac (she has extreme anxiety and gets very aggressive when she's scared.) She hates this medicine though (it tastes bad I guess.)
