For some weird reason if you do nothing to alleviate a massive homelessness crisis and shut down almost all public restrooms, you end up with people using the streets as a public restroom.

I stopped following BoingBoing ages ago when every other post was "information wants to be free, support the EFF!"; meanwhile they'd "disemvowel" any comments that politely questioned someone's view on a topic. (Disemvoweling was leaving the comments up, but they had a script mods could use that took all the vowels out of any critical comments, so you had to struggle to read them.) Hypocrites, all around.

Good to see Xeni hasn't stopped being absolutely batshit and I have no reason to bring traffic to that site anymore.

Yeah, so you'd have, like idk, an article about how awesome an almond milk brand was, because of their clever marketing. If you'd dare suggest in the comments:

"Almond farming is actually terrible for the environment, and you should consider alternate choices like oat milk; here's some actual factual sourcing on that" [link]

If it offended the authors/mods (or simply went against their pet brands/projects) it would show up as:

"lmnd frming s ctlly trrbl fr th nvrnmnt, nd y shld cnsdr ltrnt chcs lk t mlk; hr's sm ctl fctl srcng n tht" [link totally omitted]

Free speech, indeed. There was also a big blowout about Xeni "un-publishing" a bunch of posts by a woman who they had a personal falling-out with around that time.

20% is just easier to tip. You move a decimal point to the left. You do it again. You smash those numbers together. You write it down. You put down the pen and hand over the receipt, sweaty and nervous, hoping you didn't take too long and that no one witnessed your public display of shameful mental math skills.

Not to make this into a whole thing, but is almond milk worse for the environment than just regular milk? I know compared to a lot of other plants and nuts almonds are huge water hogs, but so is everything involving livestock. Genuine question.

Even before the pandemic if it was something like a diner I went to all the time Iíd tip either 33 percent or five bucks, whichever was more. Always had my favorite table waiting for me after my night shift.
