Don’t shame people for not knowing how to do something you think is common knowledge.

The reason someone doesn’t know something is simply that they were never taught it. It does not mean they are less intelligent than you, It means that no one ever took the time to teach it to them. You got lucky that someone taught it to you or else you wouldn’t know it either. So stop.

There was an XKCD comic about this once, which estimated that 10,000 people learn a “common knowledge” thing every day if you assume that everyone learns that stuff by the time they’re 40.  Your odds of getting to teach someone about that thing are pretty low, so the comic recommended getting excited that you’re the one who gets to teach that thing to that person.  Plus, being nice to people just makes the world better.

night vale is full of thought provoking humour and beautifully inspirational monologues but “subway? more like wowza” will always be one of the best things it’s ever come up with

it’s right at the top of the list with “what’s an egg” and “i never knew school cleaning appliances were so strong”

"Mountains? More like nothings" 

"Nice try, giant worms.

"And I was like, whatever, rich guy!”

Are you fucking kidding me? Like, no, Shakespeare wouldn’t tweet a sonnet cause 140 characters is a bit short for that. Wrong medium. But you know what he would have? A very active twitter FULL OF DICK PUNS AND YOUR MOM JOKES okay. (And probably also a blog for the sonnets and longer works, that cross-posts links to twitter anyway.)
Get out of here with that pretentious anti-technology bullshit.

He’d rock the fuck out of memes. Don’t deny it.

Exit, pursued by a doge. much run wow
