Today I’m celebrating my 11,636th day of not being Ben Shapiro

@baker_ben It really is. If she’s accidentally illegally sold some fish or something maybe it’s ok. But weapons?!

In reply to: @momjeansplease's tweet

@momjeansplease Babies come from home lol ‬

Is Liz Truss seriously not going to resign?

Can we all accidentally do illegal things now?

In reply to: @thewomanfredi's tweet

@TheWomanfredi Your courageous honesty here really helped me today. Thank you.‬

Eton training 11-year-olds to be Prime Minister has had the unintended consequence of giving us Prime Minister's that act like 11-year-olds.

“We’d all *like* God to be *that* loving, but tough”

‪Routinely get accused of ‘making God in my image’ when I discover a god more universal and inclusive love than I thought possible. Like I could out-imagine or out-love God. 🤷‍♂️‬

‪On the one hand, I promised some people I’d stop swearing on Twitter. On the other, Boris Johnson is about to become Prime Minister.‬

‪Check mate.‬

If Jeremiah 20:14-18 isn't a man struggling with depression, I don't know what is.

It's called 'late stage capitalism' because it's either nearly the end of capitalism or nearly the end of civilization send tweet

In reply to: @liturgicalqueer's tweet

@liturgicalqueer ‪I wonder if there’s an argument for being kind to “weaker brethren” here. I always want Mass to be open and available to all, even those who’ve adopted a harmful stance by default. I wouldn’t take part in patriotic mass and others may not in this. let us all come to the table.‬

@dianajohnsonmp ‪Why does he sound like he’s swallowed Nigel Farage?‬

‪Do they all have to talk like that?‬

In May 17 I wrote "Conservative government will see 9906 rough sleepers on any given night in England... by 2022". We're up to 8855 in London.

In May 2017 I projected another "Conservative government will see 9,906 rough sleepers on any given night in England’s streets by 2022". We're already up to 8,855 in London alone. They're going to smash my projection. Good job.

I'm showing up three years late to Lemonade... but what an album!

I hope I never learn how much of my life has been "Installing nokogiri 1.10.3 with native extensions"

In reply to: @derricklweston's tweet

@derricklweston interesting. My experience has been happiness is expected if you’re doing Jesus properly. Once I wasn’t happy any more I had my faith questioned, even by pastors.

In reply to: @stephen_m_w's tweet

@stephen_m_w This always reads to me like pure gaslighting. A Driscoll-esque “don’t worry Christianity it actually really manly and toxic masculinity is exactly what a God wants” vibe.

Just put my first article on @practicaldev. It's a bit niche, but there's a nice way to use anchors to interact with URLs the same way as window.location, and an annoying IE bug solved!

Why does grime music always elicit the worst dad dancing from me?!

In reply to: @JonDMack's tweet

@JonDMack I also noticed that. Adam thought it was hilarious.

This #PrideMonth, I’m proud of all of my queer, gay and trans friends, who have had to face tremendous difficulty just to be who they are. I’m especially proud of those of you with a church background, I’m so sorry how you were treated.

We can and must do better.

‪Man hopping along the road - one foot bare, woman behind him:‬

‪“Oh Harry, I can’t believe you’ve broken it.”‬

‪Me, a Good Samaritan: “Do you need help mate?”‬

‪Her: “he’s fine he’s broken his flip flop”‬

The word “pride” has two opposites: humility and shame.

Pride month is about celebrating the latter definition, it’s important the church stops responding with the former.

Churches celebrate the centre of a bell curve distribution on mental health, bodily health, sexuality and life experience as if that’s what the gospel brings.

Normal.

WHY IS THE WHOLE INTERNET OFFERING ME A FREE DRAGON EGG?!

Remember when usury was a sin?

PLEASE STOP WRITING DEV ARTICLES WITHOUT CLEAR DATES ON THEM. I don't want to find myself half way down a 2014 deep-dive into something now irrelevant by mistake.

Found contemplation really hard tonight. Mind seizing the opportunity to create a massive todo list...

I didn’t really know of @rachelheldevans work but seeing the outpouring of love and grief on Twitter has led me to buy her books #BecauseOfRHE

I hate former developer me, he's awful.

Any candidate not standing up for @IlhanMN isn’t worth consideration for president.

How mad is it that Einstein actually predicted the existence of black holes and was right?

I hope @mehdirhasan realises how painful it is waiting for Deconstructed to drop in the UK... 👀⏳

You know those TV shows that aren’t that good but that you’ve watched so much of you just have to carry on watching to see the end.

Parliament is basically Lost seasons 4-6

Might make “everybody knows I’m Brexit Hardman Steve Baker as far as I’m aware” my new ringtone.

This is all your fault @varjmes. Instead of building git in Ruby along with the book, I like the idea of learning something new alongside. So Haskell it is... 🙈

Really hoping the twenty-second of May doesn't refer to how many votes we're having on her deal...

Hi @SteveBakerHW, We don't agree on much, but as my MP can you please make it clear you don't think sharing videos from AfD is appropriate or acceptable, such as @Jacob_Rees_Mogg has done. Cheers. 👍

In reply to: @varjmes's tweet

@varjmes I bought the book yesterday on the back of your tweets. Fascinating.

In reply to: @bekahhw's tweet

@bekahhw one of the most disappointing discoveries of my life

In reply to: @varjmes's tweet

@varjmes I think it’s a sign of Spring 😊☀️🌷

@vevlol appreciated.

@tliddiard17 you heard it here first.

In reply to: @wmarybeard's tweet

@wmarybeard to what extend did the country choose strength and stability with David Cameron over chaos with Ed Miliband?

All I want is to be half as funny and ascerbic as @MarinaHyde

So gutting to have to cancel my @dwellbible subscription. A wonderful idea and a nice UI, but the least responsive app I’ve ever had on my phone. Hope to return one day!

I can't help but think the word `php` being referenced 3556 in my project, all exclusively in .phtml files is unnecessary.

@melissaflobix oh I love this so much. Adorable.

@mutablejoe is 4-4-2 the new modern system this country needs?

In reply to: @varjmes's tweet

@varjmes Eeesh... 😬

@varjmes Do you still have a stove?

@techgirl1908 😂🙄😬🤦‍♂️🙈

This is a note that I'm going to send some webmentions to in the hope that I can recieve them.

All I want for Christmas is for @Keir_Starmer‬ to run for Labour leader.

In reply to: @springerbryon's tweet

@SpringerByron @SbethCaplin - you win! Goysplaining it is!

In reply to: @springerbryon's tweet

@SpringerBryon oh yea I got it, I’m with you! I hoped during my reply I’d come up with something funnier, but alas no. It’s like they’re talking down to @TheRaDR on two axes: mansplaining to the more qualified woman and [this]splaining to the Jewish person. Maybe we can go with “Churchsplaining” - at least makes Jesus once removed from these pricks... 🙄

In reply to: @garybernhardt's tweet

@garybernhardt the amount of replies listing these... 🤦‍♂️

In reply to: @springerbryon's tweet

@SpringerBryon Christsplaining is probably a little unfair on Jesus. 😂

In reply to: @theradr's tweet

@TheRaDR I think much of the Protestant root of this portrayal of Judaism comes from the Reformation. I was brought up quite literally casting “The Jews” of the NT into the role of Luther’s Catholic Church.

In reply to: @unclecrispies's tweet

@unclecrispies to be fair, she said “might”... mind you, that’s still more certainty than the instigators of Brexit I guess...

In reply to: @theradr's tweet

@TheRaDR I’ve started to notice a similar thing on fast days as I’ve followed the Orthodox Church calendar. I never like doing them, but there’s something powerful behind the discipline and repeated practice I think.

In reply to: @therightmelissa's tweet

@TheRightMelissa @realDonaldTrump How has this not been ratio’d?

In reply to: @therightmelissa's tweet

@TheRightMellisa @realDonaldTrump ‪How has this not been ratio’d?!‬

Is Donald Trump stealing @JudahWorldChamp’s act?

This man is a parody of himself!

In reply to: @joncstone's tweet

@joncstone It definitely isn’t.

In reply to: @sidwright8800's tweet

@SidWright8800 @twlldun ‪I really want there to be a joke about a community of Jewish ants I could put here...‬ I’ve got nothing.

In reply to: @baddiel's tweet

@Baddiel I think it’s that the Left wants to be anti Western-imperialism so feels a need to ally with one of its old “enemies”. Bit odd though, I agree.

In reply to: @girlziplocked's tweet

@girlziplocked a lack of hope.

In reply to: @notbeforenoon's tweet

@notbeforenoon @alex_segura I'll take it.

In reply to: @adamdawkins's tweet

@adamdawkins @alex_segura It’s not like we can’t say “panino”

In reply to: @alex_segura's tweet

@alex_segura Panini is plural

Is it a rite of passage for a US president to start an illegal war now?

In reply to: @itsuofficial's tweet

@ItsuOfficial I’m just still not over the fact that somebody ever thought “original” and “medium” were two valid sizes to put together..

This might just be my favourite commons speech of all time. Thank you @jessphillips

In reply to: @twlldun's tweet

@twlldun the bigger question is: “why is Venezuela italicised?”. (Not bigger, just... annoying)

In reply to: @johntnorris's tweet

@johntnorris @ItsuOfficial Did we ever get an answer?

The Slack Logo Creative Meeting:
"We want something cleaner."
"Baths are clean... *writes down rubber ducks*"
"And clearer"
"You know who were really clear about their intentions... the Nazi's" *adds a swastika*
#slacklogo

Bugs! Bugs! Bugs!

I just had articles and notes pages give up on me for separate reasons.

All squashed now. (v0.7.8, v0.7.9)

I still think the most ridiculous thing about the new Slack logo is how bland and unrecognisable it is. My thumb hovers for ages while I try to find it on my phone.

What's the most popular track you skip on an album?

@johntnorris, mentions work in my notes now ;) - (can't track your reply or like yet... 😬)

The biggest challenge of our times is to come together and unify the location of plug sockets in cafés.

I just added some basic auto-linking to notes on my site (this is proof), stealing heavily from @kylewm's Python port of @t's CASSIS-autolink.

I can't put it on Articles yet, because they're converted from markdown to HTML first, so I was getting some double-linking of hrefs, which is dealt with here: https://github.com/kylewm/cassis-autolink-py/blob/master/cassis.py#L53

The strange thing about Brexit is that it is happening, and yet has the slow drag of something that isn't. Like a glacier that is slowly melting, but will immediately become a torrent of icy water on March 29th.
