Cops? 

@Anarkat I think it's great to sit with these cognitively dissonant experiences. IMO expressions like ACAB are valid, but only while the person acts in the capacity of a cop. It's the uniform that makes the bastard, not the individual underneath it. I think it's dangerous to reduce a person down to their profession.

@garbados I would have you all over for mead and arson, to be visigoth

@drwho For sure. When that happened to me the lock was keyed to a master and one of those internal split pins failed.

@drwho That sucks. I have been in that same situation before. I don't know how common it is, though I suspect not very. It feels cool to be in a place where that's a nonchalant rant. But also, again, that sucks.

How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb? 

None. It's a hardware problem.

@Jo My folks also have a Great Reverse Card Error of 1979. They still talk about it. What a strange zeitgeist.

"She told me that she didn’t call herself an anarchist because she didn’t feel that she deserved to—she didn’t do enough. I asked her if it was OK for us to call her one. She said she’d be honored."

LB: I was just talking at work (to another visually impaired person) about how much I hate "blindness" used as a metaphor. It does real harm because the metaphorical uses are always about ignorance or apathy, qualities that are then widely attributed to blind people

So "plant awareness disparity" seems a lot better than "plant blindness." Indeed, awareness disparity is a great name for what's usually meant by this kind of "blindness." The disparity feels important, that's maybe underappreciated
