Laws are for commoners. The only "flex" proles see is the law flexing wider to scoop deeper, flexing wide enough to trigger from any six lines, should Our Betters so decide.

The flex for the wealthy, of course, is like when Google generously flexes away their takedown rules every time Time Warner accidentally demands their own websites shitlisted.

I was sad when I saw the meaning of "literally" drowning in a flood of tard, but watching it happen to "offensive" is like watching someone fall down an escalator forever.

Soon the dictionary will just list Offensive: We have no idea.

Depends on task weight. If you're on a dedicated process then you're best off hammering it and keeping your momentum. This is where people want to put on the headphones and drone away. The longer you have the process in forefocus, the better chance to adopt optimizations, which just won't emerge without sustained sessions.

That said, there's also tasks that involve a lot of "click and wait" (incl literal clicking and waiting), that don't engage you much, that are usually unimportant anyway. Depending on the details and arrangement, you might see gains from multijuggling. If what you're doing is indulging (facetweet reddiblrgram socnets) on the side, probably not, but you probably don't care about any inflicted losses anyway.

That's thought-provoking; maybe it's because for all the noise we make, we can't do shit anyway. Over there, it's a threat, over here, "lawl we dgaf dwi commoners send a letter to your congressman oh wait it's me"

Sure, let them complain about the state. Who cares, we own them.

Might be a swapout in the luck reference, in favor of "who you know" or "superficial illusions" arguments, but even if GP meant those the fact remains that sheer chance decides your place in the world, primarily the ovarian lottery.
