“I’m typing with haptic feedback!” as a phone equivalent to “I’m using tilt controls!”

all of my Lightning cables are slowly developing hairline fractures on their connectors but I feel if I stick it out a little while maybe everything will turn into USB anyway

@darius nice 5-star homestuck made this world review 😆

Someone in a Zoom meeting lit some incense on camera but the video quality was too low to see the stick, so it looked to me like he just menacingly held a match for a second

Xenoblade Chronicles 3 spoilers (ch 5)

pandemic vignette: I haven’t eaten oatmeal in months because it’s been too hot, but I keep one of those big 42 oz cylinders on my counter anyway because it’s a good tablet stand for when I’m washing the dishes. I’ve gotten good at pausing a YouTube video with my nose when my hands are wet

it feels like backyard fireworks season should be over by now. and yet…

every year or two i decide that maybe it's time i learn to write shaders, but i'm always wrong
