    It's like that joke where someone follows every instance of the word "I" with their full name which has like fifteen parts, except instead of bunch of names it's just a string of 185 alphanumeric characters.
    "I, aBAK4bCZRUC94nb8QR9A9RQhvFV1KVBG48BJBA8vkhvaO03B8VC72vK71BkhVKhgo8GK1VfaqeIiYtiYBi8b6JA9Oo4jB87724QB8xbkJJWQPRPQ161C191vjqjhb8Brfvxe8hnDfjuiNJRc9JDi9FhV5yb4YCcYUQJNF0Nc9v5c8c94C9nN0Hw9V, declare that..."

    Kicking Trump off of Twitter two weeks before his term ends should be a purely symbolic gesture, except that's somehow his primary form of communication with the howling mob and so it has actual effects in terms of his ability to cause things to happen. In contrast, the effects of a second impeachment are much more indirect, requiring passing through at least one stage of virtue signaling to constituents before getting to actual tangible consequences.

    NB: When I say "howling mob" I mean Americans in general.

    But what about second healthbar?

    The wording I use to deliver bad news depends, in a pretty consistent manner, on how surprising it is. For instance, for events that had a small but nontrivial chance of having hone better, I almost always start with "Welp." For getting completely blindsided, the phrase is "So it turns out that"
    Note that whether the news is bad for me or just for the listener is more reflected in pitch, which of course is completely lost in text so I sound more sympathetic.

    "Our time slots for things happening: soon but we don't know when, eventually but we don't know when, possibly but we don't know if, and tomorrow but we won't be told beforehand."

    *Code Ment voice* Why are you trying to close it in the sup norm?

    Why are the main pictures of the Rodam's Partido Largo, a 3rd party interpretation of the Gundam GP03 Dendrobium Orchid Mobile Armor, always from the back? If it were, for instance, the Nobel Gundam, that would be a bit more standard since the Nobel Gundam is female-coded and actually has something resembling an ass to show off. But the Dendrobium Orchid is a metal shelf with rocket boosters and guns and missile racks attached to it; why are all the pictures emphasizing the rocket boosters rather than the guns and missiles? Have I stumbled into the alternate universe where the logistics end of things is suddenly considered more of a selling point? Has the Gundam fandom been invaded by transit-oriented teens?

    What does Brian Eno think about ASMR? What would John Cage have thought about ASMR?

    The sudden realization that, in the hypothetical case that I actually open up my tumblr and go through with my plans regarding it, my policy of leaving my inbox open to anons but not actually publishing any received anon hate means that I can simply lie about the contents of my inbox.
    I mean, the original plan was to simply assign a periodic letter grade to the entire stack, which is entertaining enough as it is, but I could instead make vague, contextless rebuttals to it, even to messages that don't exist.
    I mean, that's probably just inviting more drama than the letter-grade strategy, which itself is intended to prevent drama by being really unsatisfying for the kind of person who sends anonymous hate mail, and also I probably don't need to actually expend energy in order to get bugfuck nonsense in my inbox; I can probably just make a post about higher identity types and in return get an angry screed about being a terf or something. But still, it might be fun for a little bit.

    When your code doesn't work because, despite the objects looking very similar, it turns out that + means very different things for lists and for vectors.
