I have a bad habit of posting quotes here unattributed,
most often because context doesn't matter compared to the power of the words. For example, [this quote](cf045c64-f54f-423f-b682-52b99c7294d2) ("You may be looking at the last person in America not online") sounds so fricking good. But it also means that I'm trusting myself to remember where the quote came from. I've been racking my brain, and I can't remember who the Last Person in America Not Online is. It's not indexed by Google (except for this page). Nothing in my browser history from that day is promising. (Except for me searching for that phrase?) Yet the quote was definitely written out online in some context. (Probably an image posted to Reddit, then?) The Internet is a weird place.

There's *always* a temptation to group files by type, and I've just never found it to be a good idea. It makes the code easy, sure, but it's
more intuitive to have files that relate to each other in the same place, rather than with files of the same type, that might have completely different content.

“emphasising the composition of generic and reusable (pure value returning) library functions” *reimplements Haskell in JS*
I had to see this, so you do too. Some of the worst JS I’ve ever seen. I can’t fall asleep, it’s scaring me. Why would you reimplement the Haskell standard library in JavaScript??? Are pure functions that important to you? Is partial application of function arguments worth creating a syntax for calling functions that I’ve never seen before? (It would be slightly better if you were using the ES7 `|>`.) If you care that much, allow me to point you to some excellent functional languages that compile to JS (Elm, OCaml). Ah, you say, ‘but what about when I have an infinitely long list (represented by this generator function), then the JS standard library is useless.’ Infinitely long lists aren’t a thing, I don’t care, go outside. http://www.rosettacode.org/wiki/Determine_if_a_string_has_all_the_same_characters#Javascript

The Count of Monte Cristo: *makes a philosophical comment*
*Paraphrase from Chapter 48: Ideology* Villefort, the King's Attorney, responsible for overseeing the courts of France: Why do you philosophize. If I, like you, had nothing better to do, I would do something more interesting. The Count: Do you really think you have better things to do? Villefort, shaken: Perhaps, since you have spent so much time in countries less civilized than France, you are unfamiliar with our justice system. (Okay, Villefort is more racist in the book.) The Count: In fact, I have made a philosophical examination of the justice systems of all the countries of the world. I find that those more primitive nations, which use the law of retaliation, do better a better job of achieving justice, as measured against the law of God. Human inventions march from complex to simple, and simplicity is always perfection. So perhaps then you will have nothing to do. Villefort: Maybe so, but until then, I spend a lot of time studying our complicated laws. The Count: Sure, you might know the laws of France, but I also know the laws of the Enlgish, Turkish, Japanese, and Hindu. And so I'm right in saying that you haven't done anything, since I've done so much more relative to you. (I can't handle this book. It's all like this, you have to parse the 1800s grammar, but then it's just The Count roasting the hell out of everyone. Nothing advances the plot, it's just The Count toying with his food. It's not subtle at all.) The Count: "I see that in spite of [your] reputation...as a superior man, you look at everything from the...most narrow view which it is possible for human understanding to embrace." Villefort: Waht (It keeps going. I can't! The Count is like, I'm the enlightened of God, and Villefort gets sassy with him.) Villefort: "Excuse me if I was unaware that I should meet with a person whose knowledge so far surpasses the usual knowledge and understanding of men." It's rare for "us corrupted wretches of civilization" to get to meet someone like you. The Count: Really, you couldn't tell I was special? I thought you were a discerning person. (That's how I paraphrased it. The text is "do you never use your eyes?") (The Count alludes to angles here.) Villefort: So you believe in angles of God. The Count: Of course, I am one. (I have to cut The Count's monologue here. If you want to read it, I'll happily send you a picture. The highlight is "What men call the chances of fate—namely ruin, change, circumstance—I have fully anticipated.") Villefort: So then you're the only perfect person? The Count: "No, not perfect, only impenetrable." (It keeps going! I have to stop here. It's your loss that you don't get to hear about how The Count sold his soul to Devil to become the hand of God.)

Matthias's programming language of the day is [ReScript](https://rescript-lang.org), a language that compiles into Javascript, but is
designed to encourage functional paradigms. It's strictly typed, and places an even greater value on type-safety than TypeScript. Much like Rust, it's designed to be similar to common, modern languages, while still being compiled and taking advantages of the safety that results. (It's of course garbage collected, since it compiles to JS.) Syntax is similar to JS. Prominently, all primitive variables are constants; if you want a mutable value you have to wrap it in an object. It encourages pure functions, doesn't have any `null` or `undefined` types, and (in most cases) can infer types without needing type annotations. Because of compiler time optimizations, it boasts faster run times and smaller source files than comparable JS. The compiler is written in OCaml.

Here's a weird idea I've had for a bit. It's hard to describe, but imagine a browser that supported plugins for other file types.
I say it's hard to describe, because if you remove HTML as a first class citizen, i.e., HTML support is also a plugin, then what I'm describing is really an operating system. So imagine this operating system, that looks just like a browser—it has an address bar and tabs and that's about it. No other "applications." Not just a tabbed window manger, because the address bar is also super important here. In browsers today, you type a link to an HTML page in the address bar, and it opens. And you enter a link to an image, and it opens. Browsers can open PDFs, images, html, sometimes folders, and plaintext. But that's it, as far as I know. What if you had a browser that supported those file types by default, but also supported plugins to open and edit other types of files. Websites already send a Content-Type header that the browser uses to decide what type of content it is. What if I could register a plugin for a different Content-Type, like text/markdown, and then the browser could use this to open markdown files and read them. This removes the need for browsers to focus on making everything. It really separates the "browser" as a loader for these file types from the "browser engine" that parses HTML and runs javascript. Because the second task has become so daunting, it's really impossible to write a browser. But there's still a lot of room for improvement with the first problem. Why can my browser open all these file types, but not edit them? Obviously, PDF editing is out-of-scope for browsers today, but why then can I open a PDF file? I can open a folder from my SSD in my browser, but the item listing hasn't been touched in 10 years, it looks like. In 2021 markdown is a super common format, but markdown didn't exist when the browsers were being written, so it's not supported. And today, the browser makers are worrying about other things. If they let someone else write a markdown render, it would make the browser better. I could probably achieve a similar effect by using Atom with a browser plugin. Atom's vast array of plugins for different files is one of the inspirations for this idea. Or a tabbed window manager, like I mentioned. But those miss the idea of an address bar. It would be cool if I could type in the same box, "https://apple.com" and get a webpage or "file:///bin/zsh" to get a shell.

I had a dream that I was in a forest of metals trees that were Queen songs. There was a snake, and I grabbed the snake behind
the head, like you're supposed to, and the snake was also ranked bedwars all star player nohuh. And my grip slipped, and the snake scooted forward and was able to turn its head like 90º, but couldn't quite bite me. But I was worried that if I brought my other hand over, it would be able to bite me, and I couldn't, like adjust my grip to where I was holding it safely again without my other hand. So I'm just squeezing this snake behind the neck, pretty hard, because I don't want it to slip out. I considered just squeezing super hard and trying to kill it, to be safe, but that's very against the morals of the recreational snake hunting club that I'm in. Because if you kill all the snakes then you can't catch them anymore. And then I woke up.

I can render my markdown on the client side, where it takes 1.5 seconds, or on the server, where it takes 3 seconds. I hate this.
The issue is the images that I’m in-lining take forever to render as text on the client, and HTML layout has to finish before JS can run. So I was going to move it to the server, but the Python markdown library is just slow, to no one’s surprise. All software is bad, and anyone who says otherwise is trying to sell you software.

Matthias's guide to getting started with Blaseball!
0. Decide you want to. Blaseball is a simulation where fake teams, with randomly generated players with made-up names play each other. You interact with Blaseball as a fan, watching games through a minimalistic text format. In addition to the rules of B*seball, there are lots of twists that Blaseball adds. For example, last season, one of my team's pitchers became a terrible batter, before they were killed a few games later. The value in Blaseball comes from being able to interact with other fans, much like being a fan of a normal sports team, but more exciting. Blaseball games are played every hour, Mon-Fri, with a postseason on Saturday, and elections on Sunday. This ensures that there's never a null moment, and there's always something weird going on to talk about. 1. You're convinced? Let's go. Head to https://www.blaseball.com and create an account. Then pick a team. I'm a big fan of picking teams with no information other than the name. 2. Join the official [Blaseball Discord](https://discord.gg/3uFgJhu). Read the rules and all that jazz, find your new team in #choose-your-team, and click it. This gives you access to your team's channels. Introduce yourself, this is your new family. Each team runs their channels slightly differently. For example, most teams have a watch-party-channel for discussing on-going games, but I don't know what the name will be for your team. The Discord is the best resource for up-to-date answers to your questions. Remember, no one else knows what's going on either. 3. As I'm writing this, we're on season 14 of Blaseball, there's a lot of history to get caught up on. I recommend [this](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQHBzZzaxzI) video for a recap of the first 8 seasons' lore. It's not perfectly up to date, but that shouldn't matter, because no Blaseball re-cap can be, the game just moves too fast. There's an official recap video [here](https://youtu.be/diAHuUV2Meg), that covers through season 11. It was out of date before it was even posted. 4. Watch a Blaseball game. During the season, games are played on the hour, and usually last around 30mins. You can check the [Place Bets](https://www.blaseball.com/upcoming) page for a countdown to the next game. Find where the other fans of your team are watching the on-going games, and cheer a bit. 5. Get to know your players. While watching a game and browsing the Discord for your team, see which players they talk about. The Blaseball Wiki (https://blaseball.wiki, there used to be a Fandom wiki but we don't use that anymore) is lore-based. It has background on every player, like physical descriptions and pronouns. It's put together by fans, through lore chats in the Discord (don't just edit it). 6. Ask your team about mechanics. Blaseball mechanics, like what does Flooding do? or what is the Ego+ perk, are things you can ask about. While they might be mentioned on the Wiki, the Wiki is primarily lore, and our understanding of mechanics is imperfect and changes quickly. 7. Set up your income. This is done on the official Blaseball website in the form of begging, betting, buying snacks, and idoling. The best money-making scheme is re-balanced every season. You don't have to Idol players on your team, and some players have serious perks. Right now, buying slushies is the best, but that's something you can ask about Discord. 8. Explore Blaseball in other ways! Want more background videos? Search Blaseball on Youtube. Want more lore than the Wiki gives? Seach Blaseball on AO3. Want to stay up to without reading message history in Discord? Start following your team on Twitter. Want more interesting live play-by-play? Find someone hosting Blaseball watch parties on Twitch. Blaseball is what you make of it!

Blaseball removes the illusion that sports are interesting to watch because of the skill of the players.
Every so often in a sports game, there will be a moment that exists outside of what the score is or what team wins or loses. If you're watching a basketball game, and a player just full on slugs another guy across the face, you feel that, beyond the 2-pt technical foul. If you're watching a baseball game live with your friends, and your pitcher pitches a perfect inning, in that moment, the score of the game doesn't matter. In Blaseball, if you have the best pitcher in the league, and she gets some stars sucked out of her, it doesn't matter that she's still pretty good. There's a narrative arc. Blaseball is about those moments.

There's a complex idea that needs fleshing out, don't take it at surface level, but it has occurred to me that part of growing up is
realizing the things you imagine you wanted aren't necessary in the way you thought. Like, you can satisfy your desire for x with a small amount and it's not as black and white as a child sees it. The child never buys themself candy. The child imagines that they would buy themselves candy at every opportunity. The child asks the adult why they don't have candy. The adult replies, 'oh, candy isn't healthy' or whatever. But that's not the real reason the adult doesn't buy candy. The child also knows candy is unhealthy. *In saying this, the adult has invalidated the child's desire.* But the adult has bought themselves candy before. I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with this. My idea is that if you give a child unlimited money to spend on candy, they would end up with less candy than they originally imagined or intended. And I don't know if that's true. If it is true, it has serious ramifications, because it implies that "childhood" is inherently characterized by longing for what you can't have (as opposed to say, age, or personality).
