When I think back to my school days, it just feels like a huge waste of time.

Sure, we've been taught a ton of things during that time, but imagine how much more you could have learnt with the right support... with someone who would actually listen to _your_ questions, instead of just going through the subject materials? What if someone actually fostered your personal interests and talents?

Of course that wouldn't scale, but with kids being so eager for knowledge, it just feels like lost time.

The government is demanding backdoor access to the private communications of 1.5 billion people using #WhatsApp. If @facebook agrees, it may be the largest overnight violation of privacy in history. nytimes.com/2019/10/03/us/poli

The supercomputer keeps telling me that my simulations will start tomorrow. Every day. And I don't even know if they will run properly or crash after a few seconds because of a stupid configuration mistake.

I tried to import a paper into , but instead of copying only the DOI number in the DOI field I pasted the whole abstract. It gave me this error message.

I tried to take a screenshot of the whole window with Gimp and it instantly crashed my session (GNOME).
