Found out today from my cousin who's working on the family tree that I'm likely not the 1/16 Cherokee that my mom always told us kids we were.
A little Montauk indian way back but not in a straight line. He's getting close to 40 generations mostly on my dad's side. Lots of Bavarian. Can't wait
to see his final product.

Imagine if I weren't tech savvy. How does the average person make a rational choice between their options?
 

When I visit the US, I usually get a US Sim, but people I know in the US just used their Sprint plan in Thailand because it was as cheap as anything and they had plenty of data

I made a change to our newspaper's formatting in 2016. I showed everyone how it all works and said "if something's not right, let me know, but I think it's all going to work slick."

Four years later, a mistake printed in the paper and a co-worker said "that's been a problem since you changed things and we just fix it on the fly." I said, "since I changed things? I never touch that file." She says, "no, when you changed the format." 

They've been dealing every week with this problem and haven't said SHIT about it for FOUR YEARS, no doubt holding some sort of hateful grudge every time they have to deal with it. Took me literally 12 seconds to fix the problem forever.

when RP glitches out and plays two songs at the same time (looking at you, Street Fighting Man and whatever that neoclassical violin song is)
 
But was definitely NOT the Blitzkrieg Bop by the Ramones...

 

Just did it again, the previous song is listed as Blitzkrieg Bop, but it was playing The Who - Magic Bus (Live) on top of a violin song (maybe that same song).
