Retweeted by Dale McGladderyThe last movie I went to it was a middle-aged mom texting and taking a photo of the screen. Great example for her 3 kids. :(And is texting in theatres really a millennial vs others issue? My anecdotal demographic sampling of cell users during movies defies age.Very happy enough people don’t want texting during movies that AMC changed their mind https://t.co/LZ0z3MKDyh

@jjdebenedictis That was in the back of mind when I made that last tweet. Go, go gadget immune system! @AskDyson @jjdebenedictis Given the state of some public bathrooms, I do wonder what other “particulates" are being stirred up, though.@jjdebenedictis @askdyson Point taken. And of course, everyone washes properly & always has soap. Yes, edge case :) https://t.co/lMdZaF7vfi

@RadResearcher @kevole Charals https://t.co/LltHskWwIX at Sinclair Centre also has a great quality journal selection. @RadResearcher @kevole Opus has a great selection of those kinds of pens, too. If you need “fancy” pens, the Pen Shop is the place to go ✒️😀That last tweet is not an endorsement of crap code/technical debt, more a cautionary tale that you ignore user experience at your peril.Preferring user exp over dev works: Stack Overflow Survey: WP Trending Up Despite Ranking Among Most Dreaded Tech https://t.co/tE4TSN94fD
