    Canadian profanity is the best

    I discovered an interesting tool breakdown/tool machining channel, called “Arduino vs Everything (or Evil, I’m not sure)” and it is a wonderful education on tools, and good filler noise for when I’m doing bookkeeping and what not (if nothing else).  The creator is a skilled Canadian vulgarian (i.e. someone who uses profanity with grace and style).  I discovered that profanity, when combined with an accent and regional phrasings (with which I’m not familiar) transforms into either all profanity, or all regional phrases, depending on tone.

    The channel is worth trying.

    The Wire dies beautiful

    The Wire ended wonderfully. All loose ends were tied up, all characters accounted for, old horses were put out to pasture, new stallions took their place, my main prediction did not happen, and the central message of the show, that that system always wins, was reaffirmed.

    Absolutely beautiful.
