Some days I want to play a video game that is a challenge. Other days I just want to do a quest for 2nd level characters with a party of 10th level characters and laugh about all the shit talking the bad guy is still doing

"During [the canal's] three centuries it needed virtually no maintenance, it relied on no engines or fuel, no mining, no metals, no chemicals. There was no pollution, the boats could be hand built. ... It did not cause any emissions or erosion, it saved millions of man hours otherwise spent on ... roads. There were no accidents: at walking speed and thirty centimeter depth it was safe enough to have children playing in the middle of it with boats coming and going."

I'm playing a BattleTech video game and one of the MechWarriors has a Brooklyn accent and it is the funniest thing to me. "Ey, I'm losing armor over heah"

When optimizing your programs DON'T try, say, swapping out / for >>. At least if you're writing C, C++, Rust, or JavaScript. These sorts of optimizations (all some people know) are usually already done for you, as I've been spending over a month now explaining, and as such just serves to make your code less readable.

If you have otherwise squeezed all the performance out from your code & need more, take measurements. Know what you're doing.
