November is here, and that means a massive shift is coming. And by "massive" I am of course referring to the redefinition of the kilogram unit of mass that the world has been building up to for more than 100 years. Let me explain:
Kilogram, kg (mass)
Meter, m (distance)
Second, s (time)
Kelvin, K (temp)
Ampere, A (electric current)
Candela, cd (luminous intensity)
Mole, mol (quantity)

2/ This phenomenon—I’m calling it a Sex Recession—really surprised me. It seemed improbable in the age of Tinder, digital porn, and attitudes that are generally permissive and sex-positive.
3/ What’s happening isn’t exclusively American: Similar trends are being observed in other countries, including Japan, Australia, the U.K., Finland, and the Netherlands.
4/ One cause is obvious: Adults under 35 are less likely to be living with a partner than in recent decades, and more likely to be living with their parents—which, it’s safe to say, isn’t great for one’s sex life.
5/ But I also found other explanations, each with profound implications. The first, unsurprisingly, has to do with internet enticements. Netflix and other online entertainment may be substituting for sex.

A. Yes! When using arrow functions, the scope of "this" is effectively passed in from the outer scope. See here in this REPL
Q. Where does Polymer fit in? Is it considered a framework like the others?
A. @Polymer is an excellent way to create web components, which are ideal for creating sets of interactivity that can be shared in web apps.
Q. Have we gone framework crazy?
A. At one time, quite possibly. A few years back we literally had framework overload. I feel it really has solidified into a few very strong choices.
Q. [Is] there no more need for @polymer?
A. See my previous question on this ... but in general, I think there is a lot of room for Web Components with frameworks.
These questions are based on Hollywood screenplays, the hero’s journey, and the work of writers who are much smarter than I am—looking at you @RachaelHerron and @LaniDianeRich and @darynda. I didn’t invent any of this.
And, it's totally okay to do no outlining and just wing the whole dang thing! Or do your planning in a wildly different way. But I've found these questions useful. So.
To start, you’ll need a main character. Let’s assume your main character is an orphaned boy whose horrible extended family has forced him to live in a cupboard beneath the stairs. Question #1: What’s missing from your main character’s life?
All of us are missing something. Maybe it’s a feeling of danger or true love or a sense of higher purpose. Maybe it’s a large animatronic penguin that can dispense boba tea through its nostrils. For our orphaned boy, it’s a sense of belonging.
Thread ahead. It's gonna be a long one so buckle up or mute accordingly.
2/ First - etymology of the hashtag (as I understand it). @stevieboebi posted a video about how after years of misdiagnosis, dismissiveness and all the all too familiar to many of us experiences with doctors, she finally got a dx. (Note no
3/ At the very end of a *12 minute* video she makes a statement of support to people who have had or are having similar experiences struggling to get diagnosed and treatment. Doctors are dickheads were three words in a TWELVE MINUTE video.
4/ In response someone (not sure if they are a doctor or med student or what) said they are "personally offended" by those three words (and apparently missed entire point of video). @stevieboebi replied.
YEAH WELL SORRY FOR YOU but we are told to trust doctors fully and that HURTS PEOPLE because doctors have biases and they are wrong just like the rest of us humans. And me learning that helped me tell my doctors off and demand to be treated differently and led to my diagnosis.— Stevie \U0001f52e (@stevieboebi) October 22, 2018
