Unicode brings so many new options for censorship through character replacement. For instance: "sh💩t happens"Every time I hear "24 by 7 by 365" my dimension analysis checker crashes and my leap year validator raises an exception.

@bryanstearns @built Surprise…it's aguacate, not avocadoHey HP employees: typical San Francisco startup dress code is "Don't be naked. Unless there's a parade or a race. Then it's okay."Dear hackers, Now would be a good time to mail exploits on usb sticks to random Chrysler owners. http://t.co/kJb5auadSAFor reasons that escape me at the moment I spent all day unscientifically faking this #Pluto fly-around (with #haze). http://t.co/GjeYDQXQ9e

@johndcook "is" vs "should be." English has so many complicated distinctions.OH: Occam's Taser: the most painful explanation is usually the correct one.

@extempore2 To repeat myself: WAT@extempore2 WATTrump says it would be cheap and easy to build a wall along US/Mexico border. But how much cheaper and easier to build a wall around Trump?"We just want a rough ballpark estimate." That's what they say before they rip their masks off and hiss "but you promised it would be done"

Retweeted by James IryFor every school child who lever earned about Pluto it was a small, featureless white ball. Until now.@extempore2 @wyattepp Rather than a mere type synonym@extempore2 @wyattepp Showing a clear lack of understand of what new type is about: a new type that, by the way, has the same representation@_sidverma @migueldeicaza And… now I think "pyrrhic shadenfreude" should totally be a thing.@wyattepp @extempore2 In other words, Go doesn't really have dimensions. Just something that looks vaguely like dimensions.@wyattepp @extempore2 If you multiply 5m by 2m you should get 10m^2 (an area), not 10m (a length).@wyattepp @extempore2 If you have 3m it should be legal to double it 6m. Go says no.Is it a firing offense if I spend all day today looking at pluto porn?New Horizons is 1.1 million km from the Pluto/Charon system - after 9 years in space, the probe is 22 hours to closest approach

This guacamole is so awesome. They made it garbanzos and paprika instead of avocados!Sometimes in IMs and texts instead of writing "ok" I write "kk". Suddenly nervous what'll happen if I accidentally press 3 times.Typical IM session: Hi James! - Hi! I have a question - Shoot Hope you don't mind - np Haha - What's up? Thanks for the time - :/@lqvdn Right now I'm really hoping you mean "building architects" 'cause otherwise I just … don't … even …"Let's cut to the chase" he said, hoping to get to the point quickly. But in my mind this started playing http://t.co/rk0noHpRwTAutomatic type coercion is a system whereby half of your semantic mistakes fail late, and the other half fail silently.
