I watched the Unreal Engine 5 demo and by this point it's safe to assume that porn actors will be losing their jobs soon.

I think it's a mistake to make them entirely transparent. The opaque area should begin around mid-face and extend down, because otherwise you'll be parading your sneezes and spittle to everyone with whom you interact. Perhaps a removable cloth insert.

I look forward to these being acceptable everyday wear, and I also look forward to when we can control the shield's transparency and the patterns displayed on the outside.

Unfortunately, the current epidemic will undo all progress in promoting public transit use in North American cities. We're back to cars being the only acceptable way for people to get around.

I cannot tell Pavel Durov and Jared Kushner apart on photos.

As a proud member of the Railroad, I look forward to helping X Æ A-12 escape the Institute and start a new life outside of the Commonwealth.

Current async up/down setup provided by most last-mile internet providers is poorly suited to support a work-from-home workforce. A 10 mbps up/100 mbps down package can work for a single person, but for a family where multiple people may need to be on a video call this will be a miserable experience for all involved.

I'll take "wrong ways to ask for an interview with Mr. Linus Torvalds" for $100, Alex.

I'm old. Someone was mentioning "CF" in their job interview, and for a while I thought they meant "CF Engine" instead of "Cloud Formation."

Get off my lawn.

"Free as in speech" and "free as in beer" should get another distinguishing analogy -- "free as in first hit."

Don't put crap like that in your resume unless your goal is to make the person reviewing it to roll their eyes.
