These are the times, of miracles and wonders.
And also unyielding conniptions. But I agree, faster information speeds are at least one objective measure of things getting improved these days. They even lay down another google owned fibreoptic transatlantic cable. Pings begone

Had an issue with some code. Got frustrated, moved onto next issue in code.

Fix new issue in code.

Older frustrating issue in code is gone.

Waiting for other shoe to drop and break more code.

Happens. Either it was really one issue with two symptoms, or you introduced a new issue that exactly compensates for the first one.

Gotta love compiling compilers. It was some shift/reduce errors I thought were unrelated.

They were fixed waaay up the grammar tree on what( I thought was) a different completely unrelated syntax issue.

Stuff like this is why people complain about software.  It's almost as if people think they'll get punished if they, oh, I dunno, test their code before releasing or something.

Look at the hoops someone had to go through to find this issue (which I recently started experiencing - basically someone screwed up an update around the end of August. I had to dig to find this blog with the workaround):

Old man shit gets in highly improbable places on a toilet bowl. We're talkin' goddamn ass tarzan shenanigans. Places it don't make physical sense for shit to be. Non-euclidean toilet stains.

Let me say this now: I ain't waiting for the gods to take me if I'm still alive if that very literal mess starts happening to me. Whatever plans may or may not be in place can get fucked at that point, I'm off this damned mortal coil if they're going to require living through that.

So it's the equinox.

One of the teachers in this school gave a little presentation about what that is for the kids (we gotta fill time, okay?) And she mentioned that you can balance an egg on the equinox. I'd heard this a lot growing up, and only now took a moment to think critically on it - what would the equinox have to do with gravity? A quick google revealed: nothing. You can balance an egg any day of the year, it's just a myth.

I was interested that the myth was also here in China - and not just an American thing. When I mentioned it to some pals from Boston they told me they'd never heard of it. I'm not crazy, right? This is like...a thing schools say, right?

Ooh I never heard that one!  I wonder if that means toilets flush straight down, too?  Maybe you address that in the rest of your post but there's no time to check, I need to do science :D

Never head of that shit either, tho we never did care much about the various celestial events in these parts, maybe the perseid showers but that's about it.

One similar thing tho is that a surprising amount of folks around here think that mortadella is made with horse meat because mortadella actually means dead horse in italian (pretty sure it doesn't). I remember being told this as a fact many times over the years by my parents, only recently did I actually look the thing up and see how utterly wrong that is. When I told them this they were kinda stumped and didn't really buy it, claiming that it must have some horse in it or something, otherwise why would it be called dead horse :V

People believe in stupid things regardless of their nationality. No one is really exempt from it. Like its probably a good idea to connect a water heater to a copper pipe and a stainless steel pipe because "they are all pipes so shut up and connect it"....

Edit: I hate doing plumbing works.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?
