Just found out there is a show on Netflix, hosted by Nicolas Cage, called History of Swear Words and I have never felt like something was so custom designed just for me. Bye for now.
Did you know there are people with PhDs who...like their whole job is to study profanity?

missed my calling here.
Of course fuck comes fro the Dutch. Of fucking course.
I'm pretty sure this is the best show that has ever been made, says the person who took a break after getting her masters because she couldn't decide on a PhD in literature or linguistics.

(and did neither)
If nothing else good comes out of 2021, this show is still enough to make it a good year.

I fucking knew it. There is a therapeutic effect with fuck.
This is now a History of Swear Words stan account I am sorry.
NWA "raising profanity to the level of art" FUCK YEAH they did.
I did not plan to live tweet this show but here we fucking are my friends.

"The word fuck has a baseline magic" fuck yeah it does.
"FUCK is the Tom Hanks of swear words."

Now there's a sentence for you.
"I'm Nicolas Cage. Have a great fucking night."

I don't think I'm going to watch anymore episodes. This was like a beautiful one night stand. It isn't going to get better from here. There are no better swear words than fuck.

Good fucking night friends.

I have realized, too late, that today was not the day to test my emotional resilience by assembling a piece of furniture.

𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘸𝘪𝘤𝘦 𝘴𝘰 𝘧𝘢𝘳!
This is a horrible video recording, but I have always, always loved the furniture assembly scene in Celeste & Jesse Forever.
I have switched to batch cooking an enormous batch of breakfast bowls and drinking canned prosseco and this is going much better for me.

I don’t think this is likely the type of advice that is expected, but for what it’s worth, here is “What I Wish I Knew Twenty Years Ago”, about the things that ultimately helped me navigate a career in tech and design. 1/10
First, understand that the bulk of your work is actually about understanding human behavior and not about any specific tools or deliverables. Direct your energy appropriately. Tools are going to change, human behavior not so much. 2/10
It’s fine to pay attention to what Design People are saying on the Twitters, but always be suspicious of anyone talking about My Great Method or Tool or Framework that Fixed All the Things. Especially if they are benefiting financially from a specific approach or viewpoint. 3/10
