sometimes my cat starts yowling and scoops kibbles into her water bowl, what's up with that

"these are so dry and crunchy and this is annoying and ugh i have no opposable thumbs or language to express this"?

do you give her wet food sometimes?

sorry to downvote but i was just trying to post something cute and now you're like trying to make it sound like i'm making my cat miserable with a bad diet or something

well he is the cat doctor, its his job

common misconception, he's actually a regular doctor who happens to be a cat

How to spot a Communist (1955):

Even a superficial reading of an article written by a Communist or a conversation with one will probably reveal the use of some of the following expressions: integrative thinking, vanguard, comrade, hootenanny, chauvinism, book-burning, syncretistic faith, bourgeois-nationalism, jingoism, colonialism, hooliganism, ruling class, progressive, demagogy, dialectical, witch-hunt, reactionary, exploitation, oppressive, materialist.

sometimes during my day i think about writing a really extraordinary essay on education, automation, software development, and bureaucracy, and posting it here, but so far i haven't done it. the short version is millions of people exist in a state of pathetic anxiety aroused by using computers to slowly do work that those same computers could do thousands of times faster themselves, while scrutinizing others to check that they are also wasting similar amounts of effort, and establishing political boundaries that make it more difficult to ascertain the actual processes and information at work, in order to protect the repetitive behaviors that make up their bureaucratic niches. software developers meanwhile often build tools that help these bureaucrats obtain and protect administrative niches: they create guis for fairly simple databases that make batch processing difficult or impossible, turn simple sequences of commands into long idle periods in which a user must wait for various intermediate gui elements to load, and so on. most of the people who work with these kinds of systems are 50+ year old women who know something is wrong but lack the confidence to presume to question and change the situation, or maybe are just happy for their job security and don't like to think about it much. oh i didn't talk about education, well, computers are better than teachers in 95% of cases too. bye

a lot of the impetus behind that niche protection is the full expectation that robotic process automation will replace all those jobs shortly leading to increased unemployment across every sector
