Sleep is the perfect drug.
My daughter just referred to Prague as "Český town". I'm *so* calling it that from now on! 😹(Unfortunately the converse holds, too.)It never ceases to flabbergast me how frequently tasks that I procrastinate in abject dread wind up being trivially easy.
Unsure which is tighter: last season's jeans or your naive Bayesian priors.

Just because a planet is 'habitable' doesn't mean you want to live there. Just look at ours.

Sometimes we chance to lose our blinders, that's all.When that facade is stripped away, it can be scary, but the truth is, we've always been dancing in traffic.Somehow we find the means to distract ourselves from these truths.We all live each moment of our lives confronting uncertainty (at best) and mortality (at worst). @blackswanburst I sent you a telegram this afternoon, bro. PFS over Morse, ftw.
Like an Uber, bearing an IV of chicken noodle soup... 😆Also, most people don't like confronting truth; our heads are typically sheathed in bouncy mental latex.Shared child custody is emotionally equivalent to shared custody of a limb.The more I grow, I realise just how cruel the old are to the young, and how inhumane the young are to the old. Let me die in my footsteps.

Unimpressed.No, Twitter .. are YOU reaching the right audience? Maybe some DataSci help will tell you I don’t read your emails.

Evelyn and I found this awesome chest full of discarded art (dated from 1978) this afternoon. 😺
Decluttering, aka, it all seemed vitally important many moons ago. @sergeybratus Forced adoption of what? @sergeybratus But in all seriousness, I don't see how we get to a solid body of actuarial data without some correlation missteps en route. @sergeybratus Let none attempt to deprive us of cyberbacon!"People don't leave jobs, they leave bad bosses."
Retweeted by Trey Darley"And much more," the best app feature of them all.
Retweeted by Trey Darley @sergeybratus My point wasn't to knock red team or conferences but to highlight what a baby the profession is yet. @treyka @rejectionking These would be proofs of *unexpected* mortality, to continue the analogy. Surely, each new disease gets a conference.

Retweeted by Trey DarleyThe Olympic Games: bringing the world together since 1896 on an athletic pitch instead of, e.g., yet another world war...or DRM or whatevs.
Current development speed is a function of past development quality.
Retweeted by Trey Darley @biosshadow How about kinetic sand? @biosshadow Protip: avoid toys with batteries or risk the parents' ire! @biosshadow Yeah, it just occurred to me that is more appropriate in a year or so. How about a nice kids xylophone? @biosshadow Get her a set of Geomag! onion knew in 2003 exactly what the Iraq war would reap, but Hillary Clinton couldn't possibly have...

Retweeted by Trey DarleyWe'll recognize true machine intelligence not when an ebooks account is sufficiently advanced, but rather when machines weep for humanity....a medical conference in which proofs of human mortality are continually presented as ground-breaking work.Go to any infosec conference, 95% of which is Red Team posturing, and imagine...In the 75-odd years in which Computer Science has been a thing, we've been stumbling around blinkered by alchemistic notions.In the two millennia between Hippocrates and Pasteur medicine progressed from humours, miasma, and bleeding to the birth of germ theory.
Despite surreality of current events, remembering that security is an illusion is important when those in power are always gas lighting.
