  3. That episode of the Great British Baking show where they make “American pies” but Paul makes it abundantly clear a) he doesn’t like American pies, and b) he doesn’t have a clue what constitutes an American pie.

    Then most of the contestants proceed to make tarts that are decidedly neither American nor pies. Though one guy makes a rocking proper American key lime pie, and Paul says he loves it even though it wasn't what he asked for.

  4. Dear online merchants: “Your package has been shipped” does NOT mean “We have obtained a shipping number from the post office and will actually deliver your package to USPS in five days.”

  5. For Father's day this year, my family got me gift cards to all the artisan coffee shops in Spokane, so I can test them all out.

  6. Something that will always bug me:

    I still think const should be used for constants (like ALL_CAPS_CONSTANTS) and var should be the default. Use let when you really want block-level scoping.

  7. I love what Svelte is going for, putting the framework in the compiler. But I see “template logic” in the HTML and alarm bells ring.

    Unless I’m missing something, you'll always be limited by what the template language supports :(

  8. I tried to read game of thrones once. After 150 pages, nothing had happened, so I stopped.

  9. Insane idea (don't flog me): NPM browser extension. Once a site uses a dependency, it gets stored locally & doesn't need to be downloaded again.

    Like CDNs, but with more strongly enforced SST, because CDNs don’t actually gain the caching benefits they initially hoped.

  10. I will henceforth be referring to RSS as “the future from the past”
