😀 Tom Do any of y'all have a completely normal (non-vulgar) word that you hate? For me it's "ossify".
Irv Coro On a journey to learn Javascript. Can any JS devs recommend resources for beginners?
🔚 Bort Simpson What proved useful for me was to define some project that I wanted to build, then just approach it step-by-step. Try to think of something simple that you'd like to use, then set out to build it. Also, disregard every condescending dickhead who insists you use this or that framework. Try 'em all out and go with what you like.

Miso Pitcher of cold brew in the fridge is a wonderful idea at this time of year. Do you buy it or do you do it yourself?
🔚 Bort Simpson I brew it myself. Nothing complicated, just grind 4oz regular, 8oz decaf, and 4oz French chicory, dump in a pitcher and fill with water, then let it steep overnight. Definitely nice to have when it's 90oF!

Miso How many coffees per day? I'm currently at 3 to 4, depending on how much work needs to be done
🔚 Bort Simpson Varies between 1-5 daily, I always have a pitcher of cold brew in the fridge. However, I brew 1 part regular, 2 parts decaf, 1 part chicory (also decaf). It's not super strong, but tastes great and is enough of a kick to get the gears turning in the morning.

đŸ§ŋ Andrea What is your best kept secret life hack? Mine: if you're feeling sick (high fever, food poisoning, etc) and don't drink coke regularly, a half litter of frizzy full sugar coke and a pan fried piece of bread (naan works well) will do you miracles

👉 LÊo I am confident your question is rhetoric, but I will take the bait. My answer is that ultimately what determines which words or gestures are provocative is the culture in which you are inserted. There can be friction when members of different cultures interact. To avoid friction, we could try to be aware of the conventions in other cultures and (as an act of kindness) try to avoid things that may be offensive or hurtful for other people, so all feel welcome.
🔚 Bort Simpson It seems easy in theory, but in reality any multicultural space will include groups with conflicting ideals and goals, i.e. Fundamental Islam and LGBTQ. It is expected that you will side with your ideological cohorts over your ideological opponents in any contest of ideas or cultures, which are certain to occur given a wider range of cultures inhabiting the same space and competing for the same resources (power, wealth, influence, etc.) within that space.
