Fred McFeely Rogers (March 20, 1928 – February 27, 2003)
I’m gonna reblog this every time.
Fred Rogers Real Actual Guardian of Childhood.
This chokes me up Every. Time.
I just now realized that when I was a little kid, Mister Rogers built the foundation of Wheaton’s Law in my fragile, eggshell mind.
Delete Yourself From Web Services With JustDelete.me
JustDelete.me is a directory that allows you to permanently remove yourself from different web services such as Facebook, PayPal, Amazon, etc.
Why can’t you just go to the listed sites on your own and delete yourself that way, you ask? It’s not that easy.
A lot of sites have dark patterns — interfaces created to trick users into agreeing to terms they otherwise wouldn’t — and JustDelete.me is designed to work around those patterns.
For example, Facebook’s Account Settings menu only offers people the option to deactivate their accounts, so many think that it’s not possible to completely delete themselves from the site; the “Delete Account” button can only be found if you hunt it down. With JustDelete.me, you can click the Facebook link and be taken directly to the “Delete Account” page without all the hassle.
JustDelete.me even color codes web services by how difficult it is to delete yourself from each site, with green being the easiest, and black being impossible. (Good luck deleting yourself from Craigslist.)

Aisha Tyler: Great science fiction, though – great science fiction is about ideas.
Levar Burton: Yes it is.
Aisha Tyler: Lazy science fiction is about, like, aliens and sex with purple girls.
Levar Burton: And explosions.
Aisha Tyler: Yes, and things blowing up and fighting. But GREAT science fiction is about ideas, it’s about the nature of humanity and who we are and our place in the universe.
Levar Burton: And why we’re here, right. Our place in the universe. And that’s Gene’s vision. That’s Gene Roddenberry. That’s why I have always been a fan of Star Trek, and always will be a fan of Star Trek. Gene’s vision is so strong.

I will preface this by saying I am not depressed, I just have a morbid sense of humour. My friend and I were out for a walk today in this nice park with all these benches with dedication plaques to deceased loved ones.
We started brainstorming what we’d geeky phrase we’d want listed after…
