You all need a cold shower.
False: David Pierce is the most marriageable Verge Staffer. I demand a dowry negotiation with his father at once.

It certainly exists, but I prefer to be supportive of The Verge financially, which involves sitting through their lengthy ads and lap-warming video player. Alas. As others have pointed out, in addition, the YouTube channel is often slow to be updated.
A paid, no-ads YouTube channel would solve my woes. I’m probably the only person that feels that way, though.

I would be amenable to a paid Verge YouTube channel if what it offered was the YouTube video player (obviously) and no dreadful ads.
For some reason, The Verge’s video player makes my laptop very, very hot, but the same content on YouTube does not. I suppose I’m saying that I would pay money not to have an uncomfortably warm lap.

I think he does mean exactly that. To quote him (creatively):
I’ll stick with […] Inkscape
Makes sense to me. EDIT: Then again, to omit Illustrator seems a little bit incredible, so perhaps he’d be better with “e.g.” after all…
Either will do, depending one whether he was giving an example of one (“e.g.”) or expounding on what he meant (“i.e.”) by “a true full-fledged [blah blah]”.

I spend a lot of time in the British Museum. I can spend up to half an hour looking at a single piece, if it is interesting, to understand it: what it is made of, what the patterns on it are intended to be, how it was made- simply to know everything about it that I can know with my eyes alone.
Each day as I stand in front of something, hundreds and hundreds of people pass by. The don’t ever look at the sides or the back of the object- it might well be two dimensional. They don’t see it in person. They look at it once- a tiny representation on the screen of an iPhone- take a poorly considered picture as quickly as they can, and move on.
This is not remembering a moment in pictures, but failing to live it at all.

I appreciate the advice, but I really only play games for nostalgic purposes these days. I would love to pretend that I’ve graduated from ADHD-gaming-kiddo to adult-with-things-to-do, but actually I have lost the attention span necessary to finish a game.
More like adult-with-too-much-to-worry-about…

You don’t have to park a skateboard.
“Great. Lovely. I got all the way to work, and now I am driving away again.”
Wait, so I can finally finish Ape Escape?
Excuse me… I have a little bit of unrelated, totally-not-illegal downloading to do…
Hotel living. It’s a luxury hell.
