Tell her how good slashdot used to be, before beta, before dice, before va linux, before the pt cruiser, before andover.net.

On second thought, fuck that. Take your money and go to Amsterdam. Party it up with all the hookers and drugs while you still can. And pay extra for bareback. It's not like AIDS will kill you!

But seriously, primates (other than humans) have small peckers. And even for humans, asian peckers are pretty small, too -- compared to whites or blacks -- but consistent with other primates. Anyhow, the point is, if you need a small monkey condom, do like Rob Malda and shop at the asian grocery store for your condoms. Just don't tell them that they're actually designed for fingers, not peckers!

It's interesting technology (both react and react native). But the javascript ecosystem and tooling is a bag of shit. People put up with it on the web because you don't have a choice. The only reasonable explanation for node.js to exist is that some people are too stupid to learn php. javascript on the server or desktop or pocket is a massive step backwards. But this caters to people who are too stupid to understand that so I'm sure it will be wild success. Sometimes I think intel is bankrolling the javascript hype to sell faster processors to compensate for slower and dumber code. I also wonder if wonder if wearing skinny jeans causes mind-numbing crotch pain to the point that, relatively speaking, javascript is a pleasure to use.
