Retweeted by Andrew Doull @saintburns @brockwilbur Ah so that makes torture okay @seanthearena @brockwilbur Its not a joke. I thought it would be a great movie for my kids to watch. And it wasn’t.

Dad took me when I was 9ish. @seanthearena @brockwilbur The Princess Bride has a scene where someone is tortured to death. Don’t start with the Princess Bride. @brockwilbur @docsquiddy I haven’t followed the whole thread but I hope it was the crowd chanting Machete Order over and over again.
@ToughSf @jasonfenske13 So Titan really is for petrol heads. @unormal RAID @ptychomancer @unormal @lizardengland New meme, who this? @unormal @GreyAlien @nivrig And enough poetry that you’re undervaluing the sounds of words @unormal @GreyAlien @nivrig I have written enough technical documentation to know you are overrating the utility of… @unormal @GreyAlien @nivrig Twin idioglossia happens all the time.

Unless you’ve update atomic rockets already. @keithburgun At least they’ve heard of you. @unormal Sick of your constant denialism. Everything will be burned then washed away, and forgotten in the microplastics of time. @stevewfolds @lgrangeia @thegrugq @stevewfolds @lgrangeia @thegrugq iOS is patched if you’re on 12.4 @lgrangeia It’s not clear to me if patching one end of the session is sufficient ie turns the exploit into a DoS. @AlotReally @realHiramUGrant @RedicanMel @cparker1182 @iproposethis His boss is the American people.
