You people on the East coast think you have it bad, with snow-storms and whatever.

That's nothing. My coffee maker broke, and calling the service hotline says "we're not open today due to inclement weather".

You guys get a little snow, and suddenly civilization breaks down.

My coffee maker is broken and nobody is answering the phone.

And CNN just keeps talking about snow. What about my coffee? Priorities, people, priorities.

What am I going to do without my coffee maker? I'm going to sit here in a corner, crying, that's what.

Automagically fix JSHint lint warnings
Atom plugin: https://github.com/sindresorhus/atom-fixmyjs
Sublime plugin: https://github.com/addyosmani/sublime-fixmyjs
CLI: https://github.com/jshint/fixmyjs

It's silly that we still have to care about code style. Tools can already automate a lot. This needs to be taken further!

Lest we lose sight of important things amid all the horrors and failures and times we come up short of our ideals, I think it's good to repeat a quote from "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara, about the celebrated Col. Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, who led the 20th Maine at the battle of Gettysburg, and his views on what the nation truly stood for:

"The faith itself was simple: he believed in the dignity of man. His ancestors were Huguenots, refugees of a chained and bloody Europe. He had learned their stories in the cradle. He had grown up believing in America and the individual and it was a stronger faith than his faith in God. This was the land where no man had to bow. In this place at last a man could stand up free of the past, free of tradition and blood ties and the curse of royalty and become what he wished to become. This was the first place on earth where the man mattered more than the state. True freedom had begun here and it would spread eventually over all the earth. But it had begun here. The fact of slavery upon this incredibly beautiful new clean earth was appalling, but more even than that was the horror of old Europe, the curse of nobility, which the South was transplanting to new soil. They were forming a new aristocracy, a new breed of glittering men, and Chamberlain had come to crush it. But he was fighting for the dignity of man and in that way he was fighting for himself. If men were equal in America, all these former Poles and English and Czechs and blacks, then they were equal everywhere, and there was really no such thing as a foreigner; there were only free men and slaves. And so it was not even patriotism but a new faith. The Frenchman may fight for France, but the American fights for mankind, for freedom; for the people, not the land."

Victorian Star Trek uniforms.  Because genres were meant to be crossed!
Ever thought that the skirts on Star Trek were a little short? Fear not. Now you can go Star Trek and do it Victorian style!
