Use of words for human/animal waste.
I discovered (10 years late, apparently) the XKCD color survey and the (honestly, unsurprising) scatological bent the Internet takes towards some greens and browns. Pretty amusing. Accidentally discovered this grepping for swear words before pushing code (I tend to use such words for debug variables on long nights.) "baby shit brown" #ad900d gave me a giggle.
There's also "piss yellow" #ddd618 and, strangely,
all different colors. 🤔

I've been watching "The Expanse", and I'm wondering -- how is it that "spacing" people would even be a thing in all of the ships where it's done or threatened? Like, engineers put interlocks on that kind of thing: I'm imagining some kind of signaling system that ensures if any person is in the air lock, they are, at least, suited up. Besides that air pressure would be decreased in a controlled manner, not just vented out into space when someone casually presses a few buttons.
Is there a good public #pixelfed server? I've tried pixelfed.social and I get at least 3s delay on every page load.
Sometimes, when I'm letting myself get distracted by short-term pleasures (e.g., TV shows), it helps to *explicitly* ask myself whether I'll even remember that little treat a year or five years on or whether remembering when I did the alternative thing (studying, working towards a goal I value) I'll be happier. It's really like flipping a switch.
This seems pretty stupid.
