@jenmussari You’re up early. Check your texts. 🙂 @jenmussari https://t.co/f6xuG7XyZ3A thing I don’t get: The closed-mouth sneeze. A thing that bugs me: TV characters habitually ending phone calls without saying goodbye.Smart thread. Lots of unknowns, but important possibilities to consider. https://t.co/pypnJ4hMeP

Short of reading a full biography, this is about as thorough an obituary of Fidel Castro as you are likely to find. https://t.co/Cs7ovjAcgV @sbobcat Takeaway: Putin had reason to want Trump to win, and helped make it happen. The damage is done. Question now is how to contain it.

Jesus Christ, this thread is frightening. https://t.co/dSqwkvIgnQ @stop But it’s pretty powerful and already saving me a lot of time. I can invite you to the upcoming beta if you want to kick the tires. @stop It mainly generates percentage widths based on user-defined grid proportions. No plans as of now to expand to Bootstrap scale. @stop I finally dug in earlier this year. It’s so great. I’ve since written my own semantic Sass grid generator. Hoping to open-source soon.
