Two things:
1. dentistry seems too low on the super villain scale
2. I like that Paleontology isn’t quite all the way left.

Seems like the people studying supernova precursor candidate stars in the local group, and the possibility of the neutrino flux sterilizing all life on earth, would push astronomy more to the right...

My theory is that most humans have been colonized with alien mind-control slugs that hold the earbuds for them, and the ones who can't wear earbuds are the only surviving free ones.

I’ve heard this complaint so much but I’ve never had a problem with it. I guess I’m normal?? I never would have guessed...

I need USB-C cables to become cheaper, but basically, if it's not "the good one", it gets thrown in the garbage. Monoprice has them for too cheap to worry about them.

And then there's that weird proprietary cable I've had since like 2004 that looks at a glance like micro USB but isn't, so I get halfway across the country for my vacation with no way to charge anything at all and have to buy spares at the airport for exorbitant prices.

I would be honored, but I know I don't belong in your network. The person you invited was someone who had not yet inflicted this two-year ordeal upon you. I'm no longer that person.
