If you dream about work, it's work time, so you should get paid for it.

Tonight's treasure from the streets:

Deckbuilding cardgame
2 metal insulated cups
2 cacti

Pretty good score

Learning about US history 

The prohibition time was a time where the US government -literately- declared war on it's own population. With generals in command of the police and everyone breaking the law was considered an enemy combatant.

Just rewatched the documentary on Lucio Urtubia, quite an inspiring individual.

being a senior software engineer means being able to architect an entire end-to-end application in your head but having to Google how to check if a JS array contains an element because you can only remember how to do it in three other languages

Time is immense.

Human civilisations have existed for 8000 years, our species has existed for 200000 years, and our earliest ancestors evolved 2.5 million years ago.

Our planet condensed just after the Sun formed 4.5 billion years ago, in our Universe, now 13.8 billion years old. The Universe will continue to form more stars just like the Sun for 100 trillion more years.

When you look at it that way, it’s pretty easy to justify staying in bed for another hour.

Isn't it funny how within 24h the approach to #Keybase changed from "it's secure and awesomesauce, use it for everything!!1!" to "I just use it to share stuff but warn users not to do sensitive stuff there"?

No, actually it's not funny. Because it keeps happening:

1. a new shiny startup does X in an open source but centralized way
2. a lot of "experts" saying how great it is; some greybeards warn that it's centralized but nobody listens - it's so shiny and cool!

These little troopers (trooping crumble cap) appear out of nowhere in large numbers and in a week or so, are gone like ghosts in the wind..
