It is someone's responsibility to inform @Gargron that Indians aren't misspelling Mastadon but using the word to say "great friends" (mast doston in Hindi/Urdu).
Twitter on the other hand means nothing in most Indian languages
@thomasfuchs you see

Let's try tooting from emacs :-)

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
Got an email this morning asking if I was interested in applying for a job.
"Must be able to perform teardown, inspection, build-up and test of assemblies and sub-assemblies on various components associated with the AH-64D Longbow Apache."
When I said that I had apache experience on my resume, this is not what I had in mind.
It's fun discussing things on the internet.
Me: Wouldn't it be cool if we could improve society so that men can talk about emotions?
Them: Well, men can't talk about emotions because then they're seen as weak and ineffective.
Me: hey what's this palm doing approaching my face at such a high velocity?
Lyrics that describes me doing codereview
When I'm in this state of mind
I'm wishing I was blind
Sometimes life is more than pain to me
I feel the power of my grief
Death would be such a relief
All the secrets that I hide would die with me
Depression is my only friend
Will this torture never end?
Let me carry on to dreamer's sky
