I’ve had a standing desk for a week now, and have come to an important realization. Standing sucks. Sitting rules. Sitting FTW. Hashtag team sitting. I will not be taking questions at this time.
literally just wrote this tweet and then used my left hand to move the cursor and edit text so I guess I don't really have a hard preference
My only thing is, which finger do you click with on your left hand
index sometimes but a lot of thumb clicks too
index?? so the rest of your hand just like chills off to the side?
yeah kinda! i scroll with the ring and middle, and then click with index or thumb. pinky is just out there like i'm sipping tea

Why in the name of all that is holy is the dek of this story NOT weird flex but ok

Oh crap I'm gonna have to buy this ATV
I'm still solidly 40% convinced this entire truck design is a troll from Elon Musk and he's going to eventually roll out something that looks less like a weapon of mass destruction and more like a thing a real person might drive on a real road
