@built First Cruz didn’t endorse Tump and now his own running mate has turned on him…oh, Pence is talking about somebody else?Given the choice of setting up a project in an IDE or putting out a dumpster fire, I pick the latter. At least I know where the problem is.

When I retweet a tweet it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less. - Humpty Dumpty“Feed the birds, Trump Pence a bag” My childhood is ruined.“an understandable backlash to the backslash…so we took that slapdash backslash and burned it like the bug it was” - poetry from @SlackHQThe night of deranged people calling for rivers of blood was great, shame to see it tarnished by plagiarism
