theory: the more recent a text is, the longer it takes for me to read it

lb look at this shiny new account i wonder what it could be used for :ferris_thinking:

me: poetic/traumatic/fractured and repeating time through code, for loops, processor cache and branch prediction????

everyone else in the room, nodding: we have no idea what ur talking about but we appreciate you

i love hanging out with friends from a lit class after going to a talk together who will tolerate me rambling incoherently about for loops and if/else statements in code and also how processors work in a room where probably no one else codes, and then trying to find some sort of poetic meaning in this... thanks for indulging my trash thoughts

last week i was like, i kind of want to try and implement non-aabb collision, sounds interesting :) i've tried for seven months to restitute rectangles properly but i think it would be a fun challenge :) and I Take That Back

Show thread

i continue to doubt that anyone has ever written working, functional aabb collision. i no longer think it's real. no more collision in videogames

OH i understand why im getting that type error now, mmmmmmmmmmmmnng,
