Neat tamper-evidence packaging concept: a random pattern of beads that's modified when you open the package, along with a smartphone app to automatically verify the pattern is correct.

Reusable glitter basically: to fake a seal, you need to make the significant effort of positioning each bead in the right place. Possible. But very time consuming.

I'd buy one!

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, it seems that all of our evidence was “illegally obtained” and therefore there is literally no way we can show that the defendant is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. However, I implore you to consider this: he was the bad guy and antagonist of the episode. What more evidence do you need?

On second thought I don't feel like engaging with someone that obtuse.

Do you wear contacts? Glasses? Use a step-ladder for high shelves? Phone text size larger than default? Well congrats! You use an assistive technology!

Sometimes I wonder if these Freeze Peach Absolutists have even been on the internet longer than like five years.

If I started ranting about the death of the free and open internet when I got banned from anime message boards for being a dumb tool back in 2001, absolutely everybody would have laughed at me.


Should I have tried to get a book deal and a New York Times column out of it?

Who or what even is flowless? Are they a person? A company?

(Idle thought: Does there exist a person who would accuse me of censoring my keyboard app by not allowing it to communicate with Microsoft's servers?)

I tried cutting SwiftKey out of my life but it's just so good. On the plus side, I then discovered NetGuard, so that's cool.
