Hot take: economics is largely built upon a foundation of bullshit, but some of it is not entirely bullshit. Right now, economics is like alchemy. Some of the principles are correct, or even useful, but the fundamentals are just flat-out deadass wrong. It's alchemy, and we need to turn it into chemistry.

@plausocks this works as a visual metaphor for almost anything.

@slimekat that looks cool! will have to give it a whirl.

@cant_into mpv is my favorite, but vlc and mplayer are great too. xine was my go-to ages ago, and is still alive and well.

@slimekat i always have gimp running with a handful of custom palettes handy; do you need something more specialized? i never thought to look for an actual swatch library...

Witty exchange:

When Einstein met Chaplin in 1931, Einstein said, “What I admire most about your art is its universality. You do not say a word, and yet the world understands you." “It's true.” Replied Chaplin, "But your fame is even greater. The world admires you, when no one understands you."
