Haha. I'm pretty sure these are two different types of productivity being discussed.

Any test that fails at random. Due to anything like timeouts, bad data, network issues, race conditions, et al

Sure! One year I was rejected by 9 out of the 10 conferences I submitted to.

Slow and flaky tests are a huge time suck and therefor very, very expensive for your team. Invest in making your test suites fast and deterministic. It's not exciting work, but it'll be hugely beneficial for the productivity of your entire team.

For example: "This rendering engine developed by Rich Harris and others has a name that means 'fit' or 'slender'" "What is Svelte?"

Let me say that another way for folk that have difficulty processing: Powerlifting is divided into weight categories. The women's 123 lb record, is *higher* than the men's 123 lb record. e.g. Marianna weighs 123 lbs, and squats 573 lbs. That's just silly.

I'm the strongest Google employee in absolute numbers but only the 2nd strongest lb for lb. The strongest Googler ever lb for lb is a woman (Emily, left). The strongest human lb for lb in world history, is a woman (Marianna, middle). 720 Wilks. This fact breaks men's brains. 🤯

I just ordered some of these fun NASA/ parody stickers for my closest friends. Retweet for a chance to win. I'll select 5 RTs at random next Friday. (I'll also toss in some other stickers that I've designed.)

Same. Except I like to lift in the morning. Exercising for about an hour wakes me up more than anything. But I do get hungry all day. I will say that probably the first month it made me tired sometimes. You just need to get acclimated. Then it's a big energy boost!

I propose an update to Atwood’s Law: "Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in TypeScript".

A few years ago I had the honor to speak at this conference. Great conference. Lovely people. Booth activity here was very busy it seemed. Any company with interests in China or Shanghai would do well to sponsor this.

I feel _extremely lucky_ to have made it to the world of privilege that I exist in now. I'm always fascinated to hear people's ideas on how to help others attain the same mobility. I guess I'm just not sure about this particular idea.

I guess I'm saying that giving me tax money back did not enable me or empower me to pay for my own education. I still didn't have money, and I also didn't have time because I had to work a lot to make ends meet.
