being in your early twenties is like [grocery shopping alone] [having instant noodles for dinner] [remembering random details about that one friend you haven’t spoken to in five years] [feeling overwhelming guilt for every purchase that isn’t strictly “necessary”] [having midday naps] [finding out through facebook that the girl who was mean to you in high school has a husband and a baby] [falling a little in love with every stranger on public transport] [pretending you’re not afraid of being alone] [wondering when you’ll feel like a fully realized person] [listening to bands you liked in middle school] [blinking and it’s suddenly december] [failing to imagine yourself ten years from now] [feeling like you’re running out of time]

What I think a lot of people don’t realize is that conservatives, plenty of them, are FULLY aware of what non conservatives support and are callous and cynical enough to use what they understand their despicable beliefs are as a weapon
Plenty of conservatives KNOW that drug law in this country hurts racial minorities more
And they are NOT ABOVE turning it around and saying “this candidate is a racist because she supports this stuff I’m actively fighting to uphold”
I think people assume that conservatives wouldn’t lie in this specific way because to most decent people it would be essentially admitting the stuff they want is harmful and racist but they ABSOLUTELY do this
They ABSOLUTELY use leftist rhetoric and ideas to smear leftists
This is a totally different perspective that I have never heard. I’m still concerned about the stuff I’ve heard about sex workers/trans rights - and I certainly will have to look into it more..
What’s encrypting your internet surfing? An algorithm created by a supercomputer? Well, if the site you’re visiting is encrypted by the cyber security firm Cloudflare, your activity may be protected by a wall of lava lamps.
websites for Uber, OKCupid, & FitBit, for instance. The wall of lamps in the San Francisco headquarters generates a random code. Over 100 lamps, in a variety of colors, and their patterns deter hackers from accessing data.
As the lava lamps bubble and swirl, a video camera on the ceiling monitors their unpredictable changes and connects the footage to a computer, which converts the randomness into a virtually unhackable code.
Codes created by machines have relatively predictable patterns, so it’s possible for hackers to guess their algorithms, posing a security risk. Lava lamps, add to the equation the sheer randomness of the physical world, making it nearly impossible for hackers to break through.
You might think that this would be kept secret, but it’s not. Simply go in and ask to see the lava lamp display. By allowing people to affect the video footage, human movement, static, and changes in lighting from the windows work together to make the random code even harder to predict.
So, by standing in front of the display, you add an additional variable to the code, making it even harder to hack. Isn’t that interesting?
What the fuck.

If you wrote this into your fictional story, it’d be called too fake.
Hey, y’all remember in P1 when GLaDOS’ Morality Core fell off and then she laughed and said “good news” and her whole tone of voice just switched and it was super chilling and a little gay and it absolutely fucking reverberated down your spine?
This reminds me of a post that compared her to HAL 9000. I think the core of it was “the horror of HAL was the moment the humanity drops and you go ‘oh shit it is a cold machine’. The horror of GLaDOS is when the humanity APPEARS and you go ‘oh this it not just a cold machine but a spiteful human’”
