In case anyone else was wondering: Toxic 100 Air Polluters Index (2018 report, based on 2015 data)

These seem to be the corporations fucking the planet over for a few extra million dollars.

I'll continue to use this account, but not as often; you might want to follow that one too.

I left a pot with a fake plant (but with real dirt) outside months ago and forgot about it and it's now growing an unidentified plant on its own 🤷‍♂️

I complain too much, and do too little. Time for a change.

ME: I'm hungry. I think I'm gonna go get a snack or something.
SOMEONE: Hey! This is the engineering building.
ME: Oh, right, sorry.

Finally read polybar's wiki and fixed it. It took me like 30 mins, but I'd been procrastinating on it for ages and it was really bothering me.

"There is bloat, and there is hope."

An article about bloat in software, and how less CAN be better. Extremely Apple oriented, but it raises a valid point and it inspired me to try to have an impact with what I create.

I'm free again (except for college of course), so I'll be able to work on some stuff from my backlog now :blobcoffee:

Demain, je vais finir le premier cours de français. Je suis très heureux :blobpats:

I'm cooking a piece of writing regarding a train of thought I've been following lately. It'll be extremely opinionated and it'll probably have major grammatical mistakes, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I've really fallen out of love with this instance 😔

as a programmer, let me say: stop putting computers in everything it makes the things worse

I tried to write some stuff the other day, trying to go back to a kind of free poetry/stream of consciousness that I used to write when I was going through some dark-ish patches of life, and after re-reading the pieces a moment ago it surprised me how shallow they feel.

How does one reach that interior place where our true feelings lay? I've tried the "write write write" advice that everyone gives, but I just ended up producing the same meaningless crap in bigger quantities.

I guess I'm lacking in self-discovery. But I'm a bit scared of what I might (or actually what I might not) find within myself.

Toxic masculinity. Does that mean all masculinity is bad? No! Not at all.

This comic explains it fairly well. The term Toxic Masculinity is from Social Sciences, to help explain certain problems in the current image of Masculinity, which hurts both men and women.
