"Corporate endeavors which thus threaten society cannot be tolerated.

You can think/listen *or* you can talk shit.

I shut up that day. It took me perhaps 20min. to compose myself... but I learned.

I've been feeling something between burnout and diffuse anger lately. Thanks to this Lattice Semi application note, I finally have a name for the feeling!

Serious request: Gift ideas for spouse who is a scientist w/ anxiety issues.

They generally buy the things they want/need immediately upon thinking of the item.

They are very difficult to shop for...
