I kinda hate that we use the term "spicy" to mean hot.

Not everything that is spicy is hot and not everything that is hot is spicy.

For example...good gingerbread is spicy - it tastes of spices. It is not hot.

Conversely, you can have something that is insanely hot and therefore dulls your tastes buds so that you can't taste anything but the heat. That's not spicy.

Thanks for coming to my ted talk.

Ohhhhh

theverge.com/circuitbreaker/20 Google "forgot" to tell customers about the unadvertised microphone in Nest Secure. In other news, the Greeks "forgot" to tell Troy about the unadvertised soldiers in that big wooden horse. Adtech IoT devices are not your friend.

@baturkey
Lisp fans describe any other language as "like Lisp, but not as good".

"The latest hot language, Python, is a watered-down Lisp with infix syntax and no macros."

Oh damn

Every once in a while I'm reminded that once upon a time, some people tried to make the worst, most unlistenable song ever, and that it's just out there if you want to listen to it.
