(More seriously, Sacramento has ~1/2mm people. LA county has ~10mm, Bay Area ~7mm) @built Two words for you: housing pricesStrange invention stories: One day Captain Jean Bic dropped one of his smokes into the sea. On that day his boat became a cigarette lighter.
@rit I heard the rabbit had some trouble with the law in its youth.
In retrospect it’s clear that the main reason I had a child was to have cover for making lame jokes.If you come work in my yard for an afternoon your jeans will look even worse and I’ll only charge $100. You’ll be s… They should be called Süe-ber.

On mastodon I can’t toot. Please no snickering. This is a serious condition.It’s called mastodon because they’re thawing out ice age beasts using burning servers. @rit @djspiewak Did you tie an onion to your belt (as was the style at the time)? @djspiewak @rit Core IRC is horribly busted and needs duct tape and chicken wire to hold it together.
