I realised I didn't do an #introduction after moving here.
I'm an almost 33 year old South Asian who writes code for a living.
I enjoy pro-wrestling, heavy metal, cooking, reading, making puns, making acquaintances all around the world etc.
I don't trust governments, irrespective of whether I voted them in or not.
This is how you own them at their game.
People have taken the "support local businesses" push from our PM to simply trend and give publicity to the already rich and booming businesses in the country who cater to the richest of the rich. (High class desserts, chocolates and the likes).
What we really should be doing is giving business to the street vendors who have had it hard because of a pandemic and a lockdown which hit them the hardest and the govt didn't give a fuck.
A lot of what is viral on social media these days is just regurgitated knowledge that's already widely available online in a way that makes it seem like new wisdom and discoveries.
A few days ago, I found that an article by a "famous" personality in Indian social media circles is a written form of a 2012 video by a chef at a special lecture. And the former probably got paid a lot to write that thing too.
This thread is all sorts of awesome geekery and how things happen in McD.
