Detransitioning 

@feld I think we were talking about this the other day,

"Of the 3398 patients who had appointments during this period, 16(0.47%) expressed transition-related regret or de-ransitioned. Of these 16, one patient expressed regret but was not considering detransitioning, two had expressed regret and were considering detransitioning, three had detransitioned, and ten had detransitioned temporarily."

This is the weirdest recruiting email I've ever gotten. An invitation to participate in a hackathon:

"We’re offering $15k+ in cash and prizes and the opportunity to interview at CorpyCorp! Please note you can participate as an individual or on a team!"

Ooh, a whole *interview* as a possible prize for staying up without sleeping producing software for you and *maybe* also get a sizable cash prize?

Ooh, I have 418 Wikipedia edits.

This means that if I do 82 more, I can edit protected articles!

It's also taken me about 10 years to get to 418 edits, soooo, probably won't be for a while.

These pixelly video game images of end screens of characters looking at the distance from a cliff are making me want to do the same.

Free reign is such a great eggcorn.

Thinking of correcting everyone who talks about "having free reign" to "having free rain".

'Cause, you know, normally rain ain't cheap. Luck you! You got your rain for free!

I guess not paying for kingdoms is kind of cool too.

There's gotta be a good term for when you successfully do work video calls without being properly dressed from the waist down.

Another writing night, let's see if I can write enough for Kefka to show his first strike of madness! twitch.tv/jordigh

Oh.

Spicy chicken *chunks*!

Fine then.

"Tikka Masala" just means "spicy chicken", doesn't it?

I bet it does.

Let's see...

This makes me happy. It's like the whole cavalry arrives to fix the article as soon as possible.
