...usually is quite ok when you don't want to read every single bit. Today this abosolutely boring snippet of news caught my attention at least three times:
"Google’s Polymer zeroes in on ES6 compatibility, interoperability"
The first time around I really read the caption and dismissed it as boring. After that I just skimmed over it and every time this [^] comes into my mind. Obviously some subprocessor is trying to be a little creative with 'Google Polymer'.
"I don't know, extraterrestrial?"
"You mean like from space?"
"No, from Canada."
If software development were a circus, we would all be the clowns.
Sudden Sun Death Syndrome (SSDS) is a very real concern which we should be raising awareness of. 156 billion suns die every year before they're just 1 billion years old.
While the military are doing their part, it simply isn't enough to make the amount of nukes needed to save those poor stars. - TWI2T3D (Reddit)
I'm just reporting an event. People who might not know about it will see it here, they are less likely to see it in the soapbox. A similar post I made just after the Westminster attack got moved to the soapbox yet there was another thread in the lounge the very next day that didn't.
I've said nothing inflammatory unless you have an issue with the phrase religion of peace.
Point #5 here[^] reads: For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^].
I'd suspect that a lot of people would want to be quite frank while discussing this topic.
What you have posted may or may not be soapbox material (my opinion, like many others' is that it is, but that could sure be debated). But this topic will incite further debates that will inevitably include politics and religion, and that cannot be debated or refuted.
That is good enough a reason for this post to be qualified as soapbox material.
