    When I look in the mirror, it compliments me. Just saying, nerds.

    I just made an automated aquarium dosing pump using an arduino. That whole control center might be up next on my list!

    “What’s a mirror..?”

    “That’s just a fancy big-city word for reversifying glass”

    I never get the right answer when I ask people what a mirror is, hehe 🙂

    That’s a nice looking mirror you have there.

      My mirror does what it’s supposed to. Unfortunately, for both it and myself, what it frequently reflects is less than aesthetic.

        I don’t agree with my reflection sometimes.

    We have a senior IT guy here whose last four digits of his office phone are 1337. LMAO when I saw that, then facepalmed when I had to explain it to him.

      I am amazed, envious, and depressed all at once.

      These numbers should be reserved for guys at most senior IT positions.
