What's going on?

"What's keeping us from using them?"

If you're "trained" to do something a better way, you'll take it for granted. Once whoever trained you is gone, you'll wonder why the next wave of new employees are relative deadweight even though you "figured out everything on your own." Once you have more than one weak link you'd have been better off doing things the mindless foolproof way, even if it means everyone has to work twice as hard to accomplish half as much. How much foresight are you using? It's going to be chaos after that

Even with all the weird VR controllers that have come out, I don't think there's anything that can replace its customizable trackpads yet

Please also make it clearer to new users about if you technically expect more than not being a bot / spammer

The chat rooms of old are back imo

I think I remember seeing basically the same messages in 90s news websites' comment sections, except with less focus on Catholicism now. Plenty of people I know from high school would join that chat depending on how much free time they have, instead they're copy/pasting their political memes on Facebook.

Have they always been able to scam followers out of money via gun sales?

Great writing, but seeing this article behind a paywall gives me a bit of a #nottheonion vibe

Becoming able to simply stretch away back pain in a few seconds per day is also a pretty nice bonus

washer is literally overflowing

Eh... guess I'll use the "2" line instead of the minimum this time...

I would expect anyone using reddit or tumblr for webcomics goes to at least one site. One thing I've started noticing is that Patreon comment sections seem really good compared to other social media sites for the ones that have it

Waited for the snow to start, but it didn't show up in the image:

Here's my prediction:

If people are calling each other unintelligent, then imo they should figure out who unintelligent voters should vote for

Whenever I get a message from haveibeenpwned, it's about a website that was hacked months ago. I wouldn't expect them to be the first to know

A generalised reply to the last part:

A lot of people say they prefer bluntness and honesty, but imo a monthly highlight of positives is worth it.

And if someone resents that they think your work is bad, it's likely their loss from not being able to get over themselves. A good start is better, but not always going to happen.

I think he was just trying to get around the global filter.

According to the article, it would work 5X better for a girl.
