I also don't like getting them, but I'm also getting thinner on top and it looks worse if I let it grow out. Bad times.

This is a really good idea if you're in a position to be putting any cash savings aside. In a perfect world everyone would have 3 months of expenses in cash savings, obviously that's not always realistic, but if you combine that with an offset or revolving credit then you have the benefit of having that safety net while still saving the interest cost on that money. Our offset mortgage saves us about 100 bucks a week, a good chunk of that is just my provisional tax sitting aside waiting to pay the IRD.

America has two authoritarian right-wing parties to pick from. One is less right wing than the other, but they're still both to the right of the major right wing party in my country (New Zealand)

Just to flip this, do you have any sources that horseshoe theory is a real thing? That's the funny thing about language, someone put Theory in the name and now people think it's a real thing.

To save you the trouble, it hasn't held up under academic study. Plenty of info on Wikipedia about it.

Predictably Irrational is really good.

I feel like I read Chomsky's books at a key point in my life where I didn't really get all of it but it primed me for later learning. Good list overall 👍🏼

They don't want to be told they have to wear a mask or that people should stay home from work when they're sick. Anything that would impinge on the rights of businesses to make money is against my freedoms.

It's the climate crisis but for health. Some people just can't bear to give up their treats in order to save lives.

Tech has an abundance of people who really need to be right in an argument. I've had this same argument with a developer at a client company of mine. Just couldn't let it go when I said I was comfortable with the Jetbrains suite and used their language specific tooling instead of VSCode.

Same here but with WebStorm.

I still make little static sites on occasion. There's still free options for hosting, I've got some on GitHub and used to use netlify til they changed their free tier. Sticking a static site into aws s3 +cloud front is super cheap if you don't have much traffic. The nice thing is that they run forever without any intervention.

They did the last time as well.
