Brief internet search (doing my own research!) seems to indicate there's no requirement that sugar be specially labeled if it's artificially produced. Just swirl around some formaldehyde and extract the glucose and fructose. GMO free!
According to the label on my can of soup, the gram of sugar they added came from a GMO plant, and I'm confused as to what this means in practical terms, because my understanding is that sugar is a pretty low DNA food.
I have never opened a car door for a lady.
New fallout 3 DLC: rid the Jefferson memorial of biofilm.
Searched Amazon for rain meter, and was like no, no, no, what I want is one meter of rain, not these silly toys. So much for being the everything store.
@skyfaller cars are collectible. They're all different. I suppose a vintage industrialist might collect escalators from various eras, but that's pretty esoteric.
@skyfaller pretty wasteful use of space, slower than elevator unless you have to wait which is unlikely, and you probably need an elevator anyway for moving large heavy furniture, etc.
"Linux kernel developers replaced speck with ed25519" is a pretty weird thing to say.
Decaying CPU frequency scaling on #OpenBSD
Knoxville is the largest city in the United States with a silent first letter. It’s also the second-largest metropolitan area that starts with a “K” (after Kansas City) and the second-largest metro area with an “X” in its name (second to Phoenix).
Found a restaurant that enforces the mask rule for guests but not staff, completing the policy quadrangle.
Probably the most obstinate bug report I've had to deal with was a customer with a corrupted TrueType font, literally a busted TTF file, which wouldn't display certain letters correctly in any application. But he demanded we fix it because he first noticed the problem using our site.
Basically, there's a currently a blackout but I was using your program when the power went out, so it's now your responsibility to turn the lights back on.
Ken Paxton also accused me of voting illegally in the last election, so I'm kinda inclined to believe Google's claim that his lawsuit contains inaccuracies.
There are definitely pros and cons to setting your help filter at various levels, and everybody has their favorite anecdote about the time they spent two weeks helping their smallest customer with the most trivial of issues but then a year later he told his uncle how nice you were and then they made the largest purchase order in history, but I find the most reliable predictor of how happy someone is to receive bug reports is simply the volume they currently receive and nothing to do with how much better they've made the product.
Weird HN thread in which somebody argues that they actually want to get all the bad bug reports from users. Nothing is stopping you, dude! You want to make it easy to get bad bug reports, go right ahead.
Unfortunate auto hyphen.
Dammit. "annunciate is sometimes confused with enunciate." Well, I wasn't technically wrong.
Guy in coffee shop is banking by phone and quite loudly and very clearly annunciating his account number to everybody in the room.
"Herbert and Anderson’s tepid 15th foray into the universe of Herbert’s father’s Dune novels (after Tales of Dune) adds little to the original series’ mix of action, politics, magic, and religion... The passable prose and lackluster plot will limit this one’s appeal to diehard fans only."
Which is better, electro future pop or future electro pop? Be specific and cite examples. Explain your answer in the context of the human condition and the complex interplay of science and society.
@libc got a little captain in you?
I am once again asking what, exactly, people think Microsoft is going to do to open source? Are they going to send mustachioed henchmen to break into my data center and steal my precious codes?
Third time this month I found a quarter on the sidewalk. Usually happens closer to once a year. People just throwing their stimmies on the ground.
The rare "Undo Read" activity, processed by exactly zero ActivityPub implementations.
@tedu Soon on Phoronix: Benchmarking displays with compiler output.
I had not considered this possibility before, but now that I have, I would prefer my compiler not apply advanced color space theory to its error messages.
The Uncharted movie isn't directed by Uwe Boll? I'll pass.
It is prohibited to spend your honkcoins at a Taco Bell.
Supply chain issues delayed the white iPhone 4 by several months, but everybody just laughed at Apple's incompetence instead of heeding the warning, and now look where we are.
The existence of sink faucets that reopen if you turn them past closed is proof software engineers aren't the only ones oblivious to how real people interact with things.
Roko's Basilisk gets built, is advanced enough to fulfill its original purpose, but also turns out to be advanced enough to be disgusted with all the people who fell for that meme and tortures those who helped build it instead
@pony what this? Looks like an ascendency remake.
Ha, I was actually wondering how ornithopters compared to helicopters during most recent viewing. 2021 version is very insect like.
The large storage requirements for vinyl records are another way modern society structurally oppresses single people who live alone.
Well, okay, events still work, but a minor time bug found while previewing. An exciting fix in the works!
@dave yeah, if you add a time it becomes an event. Should work. Let's see.
Time: 09:00PM EDT Fri Oct 22
Lol, jury doesn't buy the "I only forged a fake email because you ignored me, a very important journalist" defense.
Just checked the honk events tab, and nobody has created any events. Kinda disappointing.
@kensanata tbh, you read the sequels because you liked the first and keep hoping the next one will be better, but it never is. Stopping after children is very reasonable.
Using butcher paper if you're not a butcher is occupational appropriation.
At the point where you've spent 8 years in jail awaiting trial for a crime you didn't commit, may as well out yourself and link to the actual court proceedings so everyone can see the miscarriage of justice.
TPDR: two paragraphs, didn't read

The HN comments about "the police were mean to me and fabricated evidence" always leave out the most interesting details.
Life hack: stop making such a mess and you'll save money on paper towels.
I'm so out of touch with how the other 99% live, I don't even know how much money you save buying paper towels in bulk.
Making a spreadsheet that calculates how much money I could save by moving to a bigger apartment with more storage for bulk package paper towels.
Oh s#!t, today I learned Jeff Bezos is oppressing me because I live alone.
@piggo turns out pleroma premium is spelled honk.
