    I have a window and it makes it worse. The sky is all, "hey, look at me! I'm all blue and stuff!" Fuck you, sky.

    I don't understand what "Best Practices" means. I think it used to mean a set of practices whose value had been proven by much experience over time. The concept had value because whenever you found yourself needing to create some procedures, you could forego "reinventing the wheel" and consult best practices. But now the term seems to mean "the set of practices preferred by the person who is using the term."

    Agreed. I keep getting consultant types telling me that they need to consult best practices before advising a path forward. Shouldn't you know what best practices are if they are the best?

    I am the best person; ergo, my practices are the best practices.

    That seems about right. Guess I kind of have to agree with you.

    It seems you've lost sight of the fact that "best" is a subjective term. Re-grasp that and it will all make sense.

    I have noticed an interesting phenomenon that if you put pink highlighter over yellow highlighter the yellow somehow ends up on top.

    What kind of witchcraft is at play here?

    Are you promoting some kind of homophobic message there?
