I appreciate Control letting me just turn on immortality in the options menu because I do not have the patience to get good at a video game right now

i typoed "how long to beat" as "how long to eat" and i have a new website idea

the best part about this is that I never actually played a rocket league match—I was just testing out how they handled various cross-platform things

I got new slippers and when I put my feet together they make a bear

Success! Man, this thing is a monster. I ran FH4 and it was like it didn't notice—I don't think the fans did anything more than when it's idling. Maybe it's time I tried Flight Simulator!

I look forward to asking you all to “smash that bell” at the end of each of my posts blog.joinmastodon.org/2021/01/

giving yourself permission to skimp on self care as an act of self care

Many years ago a doctor accidentally used my address when signing up for a hospital-related mailing list, and I’ve been getting emails about random medical shit ever since: Invites to conferences, webinar announcements, and sometimes even exciting new products

I would love know what the conversations were like around this setting. How’d they land on the threshold? Did anyone argue for keeping it on by default?

Maybe the wildest thing about Tim Rogers' six-hour video on Tokimeki Memorial, which I've just finished after chipping away at it all month, is that I wish he had gone deeper on some things
