Weird Keyboard Art

I have been trying to find this park bench setting again for months.

Thank you elecplus!

With the help of a populist former Fox News star and America’s richest man, Mr. Putin has gained a platform to justify his actions even as Russian and American journalists languish in his prisons. His favored candidate is poised to win the Republican presidential nomination while Congress weighs abandoning Ukraine to the tender mercies of Russian invaders.
Mr. Putin’s filibuster-style appearance with Tucker Carlson on Elon Musk’s social media platform amid the security aid debate on Capitol Hill driven by Donald J Trump offers a moment to reflect on the head-spinning transformation of American politics in recent years. A Republican Party that once defined itself through muscular resistance to Russia has turned increasingly toward a form of neo-isolationism with strains of sympathy for Moscow.

There's some clever ideas in that post, but some downright weird things too!
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

My friend has a couple of those in his loft and they're actually pretty badass even if unsuited for long periods of sitting.

I'd buy the "save" coin jar.

Would beat the jar full of coins on my desk with "college fund" written on it.

I'd take a pair those keyboard outsole shoes if I ever found a pair in my size (and that looked like shoes I would wear).
  Quoting me causes a posting error that you need to ignore.
