I have that sense of satisfaction of having spent the morning troubleshooting a tricky JSON problem and resolving it without having to search for the answer(s).

@space_cadet i enjoy all of these things too. I'd also add a really good pair of leather work gloves to that list.

@thor I've been using a Matias Laptop Pro for several years now. For me it's perfect and I wish I had found it earlier.


@peemee the goat's milk brie is delicious and even better when served with quince jelly

there is this insulting word in Norwegian, perhaps in quite poor taste if you're very PC:


ånd = spirit, mind
pygmé = pygmy

mind pygmy

it, as one would expect, means someone of a "short" mind, i.e. a stupid person, but because it's an elaborate/creative word, it is more suggestive of being utterly retarded than of merely being stupid.

@thor not true. I know ppl who have flown from UK to Australia, hotel quarantined for 2 weeks, and are now doing normal things.
