    • @oracle Yeah, and I usually do OK with them, I guess, lately... But today hit too hard and fast to even try, I was at 98% and tunnel-visioning and I just absolutely HAVE to get this done RIGHT NOW because otherwise I am a GORRAM QUITTER and WHAT WOULD MY MOTHER THINK... :-/ Still working at it. I have a small sand timer for periodic meditative breaks. But none of that makes the office less of a constant and absolute press, none of it actually fixes the problem, all of it starts feeling like a complete waste of time, and sometimes even trying to relax feeds the rage.

    • @adiwan I’m settting up my standing workstation by vesa mounting 3 monitors to the wall. Having a programming job has been the worst for my health. I try to make up for it with cycling ........... and I just realized I’ve become a stereotypical ~40 white guy. (I’m only 21 :( )

    • @oracle I'm not a fan of a standing desk. I was offered one with an electrically adjustable plate but I rejected that. Also if I had one I couldn't use that because the whiteboard is right next to my desk. The whiteboard would interfere when raising the desk. Besides that all the cables are too short.

  23. I don't understand why people who've been under general anesthetics would ever continue to believe that consciousness is not generated by their body and consequently does not and can not exist after death. I mean, seriously, youv'e experienced the nothingness!

  30. I’m actually quite sad about that. I like being wrong, I actually genuinely enjoy being corrected on deep rooted principle. I even enjoy when people correct my misconceptions now because it means I won’t continue to repeat them. In fact, I’m glad people care enough to correct me.
