All those YouTube videos of people eating ancient breakfast cereal from old boxes for the views and nostalgia-barfs have led me to a frightening thought.

Are there people now hoarding current cereals just so they can poison themselves for entertainment value in the future?

Listen, here's a brief Internet Interaction Tip

If you encounter someone making a joke that might be in poor taste, or with a display name you don't really like, it's valid to pull them aside and be like "Hey, here are some reasons I think you might want to reconsider this thing."

It is NOT valid to @ them and just say "change this thing."

Especially if you have never interacted with them before.

According to the Myers-Briggs-Bechdel-Wallace test, I've at least two personality dichotomies who are talking about something other than me.

#WeAreNameless is a monthly community project on the Fediverse where Hackers and their friends watch old sci-fi movies.

Thinking way back to the time the shady owners of a place I used to work in my youth offered staff a bonus to work on Christmas, and then deducted it from everyone's following paycheck as an advance.

Haha, mentioning Eternal September earlier today led me to discover #sdate, the unix-style program to output the current date based on the idea that September, 1993 still hasn't ended. df7cb.de/projects/sdate/

In case anyone is wondering, today is the 9,565th

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The scientist hanging a clock,
Who knew on that date,
That fortune and fate,
Would reveal so much more to the Doc.
Doc Brown, Doc Brown, he did invent
Such objects of folly, with good intent,
He tumbled and fell in his lavatory
But soon after took to his lab'ratory
For though he’d been woefully injur'ed
A vision unfurled in his bruis'ed head
Great Scott! Great Scott! From this disaster
Great Scott! Great Scott! The Flux Capac'tor!
And what did he do with it? Build it!
