@thehyde Yes it's a better setup, but irritating it will take years to achieve broad adoption. Micro broadly adopted now. Ahhh make it stop! @cballer55 coming along to screw everything up @benjaminedgar Yes, agree, but I'll live with it if I can stop carrying 5 different cables. @jjesse Shhhhhhh let me have my momentary, hopeful fantasy.The world will be a better place once everything is finally standardized to Micro USB. But then something else will come & screw it all up.At some point the magical thinking and endless rounds of singing "Imagine" has to run out, doesn't it?
The pendulum is always swinging.Thunderstorms are the best. It's worth acknowledging this again and again.I knew it! Birkenstocks *are* having another moment, and this happens somewhat regularly, every few years.
Awesome @tjvalenti more a commentary on how poorly and infuriatingly designed most of them are
Few things are more magical than spending an hour trying to unlock the secrets and mysteries of how to adjust & install a child car seat 😡😡😡Remember how incredibly awesome the original Super Soaker was? The gentleman who invented it is amazing too. @dustindwyer More on LaClaire's amazing career & work here: There's also a great photo book: @dustindwyer Congratulations! It's actually a David LaClaire photo portrait. 2nd attempt bc one cousin completely melted down 1st attempt.Nice truck driver planned attack a year ago, had accomplices

@tinakozak I'm not picky. @DavidYoung247 Unfortunately peanut butter and chocolate do not provide viral immunization.Because as we all know, there are few if any better combinations of flavors than peanut butter and chocolate. the ancient Incas & Aztec were the first to use peanut butter. Which means they had peanut butter & CHOCOLATE. #PureGeniusWhat would the world be like without peanut butter? It's almost too horrible to contemplate. I'm so sorry for folks with peanut allergies.So fun that something we started as a quirky little experiment over 5 yeas ago is still kicking. @5x5night your sunglasses fog up the moment you climb out of your car, you know it's going to be a hot and humid day. 🔥☀️🔥☀️🔥☀️🔥
@david_shane that one is a Ritchey Logic. #SteelIsRealTook a picture on a bike ride the other day and used it to try out Prisma. Quite impressive. live in weird, weird times.🤔...ok fascinating that this plays up the desire individuals have to control who moves in to their neck of the woods. US has a rich tradition of utopian community building attempts. This is fascinating. lit flag on fire, then lit himself on fire, catching others on fire. Flames extinguished by firefighters. No serious injuries.
Retweeted by Rick DeVosJust a leeeeetle hot and humid out there today West Michigan. But I like it.turns out when you strip out the pictures from a buzzfeed article you get a strangely affecting free verse poem

Retweeted by Rick DeVosThat's quite a name companies have become essentially ownerless. So who's making sure they're run well?

Dumb. Let people live and enjoy. is such a multipurpose GIF. I intend to keep it pinned for quite some time. to feel like Venezuela 2002 all over again. Including the consequences.

Rather not, but thanks anyways!!!!

No more hashtags, no more avatar overlays.Nice, France, truck attack kills 73, official tells French TV
Retweeted by Rick DeVosNecessary. @alikraaimckee 🤔Well that's one interesting perspective
Ugh. there are bunches of folk convinced the world is flat why can't other folk think that rivers work like the Lazy River at the water park?"The river goes in a circle." I am mystified and amazed by this. Evidently modern humans are divorced enough from nature to hold this idea"They were informed...that the river goes in a circle & if they put in there they would come back to their car" !! matter what you do, a vocal group of people won't be happy about it. You have to more forward & try things anyway @Joel87378002 is another Go game you should be playing.
Maybe eventually we can have a more formalized #MIFlag process, pick an Official Unofficial Flag of Michigan, and actually produce a bunch.This isn't the end of the #MIFlag conversation, keep sharing and discussing!Congrats to @miacinelli @enmckee @MichaelGogreen @ChaseHasper @Victortran794 @christinaaare! Please send me a DM & we can sort the details.Thank you so much to everyone who participated in #MIFlag. My selections are simply a continuation of this fun conversation.So that's 6 #MIFlag selections, 2x what I initially said the challenge selection would be. I was blown away by the interest & participation.#MIFlag selection by @christinaaare Selection by @MichaelGogreen Selection by @ChaseHasper selection by @Victortran794 Selection by @enmckee Selection by @miacinelli
