Right now I’m trying to follow people with interesting toots, I hope that would give visibility to quality content and that way attract more people to Mastodon, so if I recently followed you that’s the reason.

Trolley Problem 

There is no trolley, only cars, which in net are running over far more pedestrians. You wish that you could get ubiquitous public transit back, but that is a slow process.

combined with -js is a good alternative for making visually stunning presentations, especially if you prefer writing documents in plain text.

I just learned that the taste of cola drinks comes from nuts. Only few cola drinks today actually contain the nut, but for example in Club Mate Cola it actually lists cola nut in the list of ingrendients

7 ways to maximize misery (link below) hit me hard when I realized I am actually doing some of the things listed
