I generally see my microblog posts to be pretty normal, but my mother asks me about the things I say on here in a very concerned way.
Hi mom. This list is pinned for you to help get rid of some confusion

* GNU is not a drug

* I cannot download drugs

* I am not suicidal, it is just part of the joke.

* I am grammatically incorrect, not mentally ill.

* I am not part of a gang.

* The flashing button that says "Fix my computer" is NOT to be pressed.

* I may not always show it, but I love you.

Oh yeah, I change my underwear often, I am not depressed, and I am not going to get a haircut!


Wait, wait?!?!?! This ISN'T a gang???!?!?!?! But what about the initiation?


Oh I thought that was the *cult* initiation!

"I am not part of a gang…
It's actually a cult…
Whatever. Never mind."

@MutoShack That's a platform I will vote for. God bless you sir, and best of luck in the primaries!



The truth is that programming can be very alienating. I use it to abstract myself a little from everyday life. Mothers are almost always right.
