Top 5 DEV Comments from the Past Week

  • When you have a distro that comes out of the box with basically nothing but a package manager, you need the wiki.
  • Hell, the wiki is a great resource for basically any Linux distro.
  • Usually when it comes to little things like code organization or implementation I let those go.
  • You may think you have the best solution but the team may decide to implement another one instead.
  • If that is the case then go with the team and trust that they picked that other solution on its merits.
  • That got a little rambly but TL;DR only thing I would have done differently in your case is asked more questions and taken the conversation to in-person immediately after the disagreement started bc PRs are horrible for back and forths a lot of the time.

The Positive Side of Shame

  • Jacquet begins the book with the story of Sam LaBudde, a young man who in the 1980s became determined to target practices in the tuna-fishing industry leading to the deaths of dolphins.
  • The campaign to end dolphin deaths in the tuna-fishing industry was futile, however, because it was built upon guilt rather than shame.
  • Jacquet writes, “Guilt is a feeling whose audience and instigator is oneself, and its discomfort leads to self-regulation.” Hearing about dolphin deaths made consumers feel guilty about their fish-buying habits, which conflicted with their ethical values.
  • Due to our negative experiences with shame on a personal level, we may be averse to viewing it in the light Jacquet describes: as an important and powerful tool.
  • According to Jacquet, we should not use shame to target transgressions that have minimal impact or are the fault of individuals with little power.

Song of the year nominee Lewis Capaldi was mistaken for a seat-filler at his first-ever Grammys

  • During the ceremony, however, Capaldi was mistaken for a "seat-filler," who is someone who sits in the seats vacated by celebrities and guests while they go to the bathroom — to ensure that no empty seats are shown during the televised ceremony.
  • Capaldi tweeted about the mistake and found it as amusing as his followers did, writing: "a lady at the grammys has just come up and offered to take my seat because she thought I was one of the people who sits in the chairs to fill them when someone gets up to use the bathroom," followed by a series of laughing emojis.
  • Before the event started, Capaldi tweeted a photo of himself on the toilet with the caption "#GRAMMYS BABY!!!" and also said he would celebrate any potential win by sinking pints.

The Flute of Shame: The Instrument Used to Humiliate Musicians in Medieval Times

  • Despite such personal technologies of relatively recent invention as noise-canceling headphones, bad music remains nigh unavoidable in the modern world, issuing as it constantly does from the sound systems installed in grocery stores, gyms, passing automobiles, and so on.
  • And against the bad musicians responsible we have less recourse than ever, or at least less than medieval Europeans did, as shown by the Ripley's Believe It or Not video above on the "shame flute," a non-musical instrument used to punish crimes against the art.
