Pejman Yousefzadeh, stating something that’s obvious in retrospect:

If you want context, click on through, and then click the David All link. Warning: don’t have any liquids in your mouth before you do. You won’t spray the liquid out; instead, you’ll just pour it out over your keyboard as your jaw goes slack. Don’t panic when that happens, by the way. That’s just your brain trying to desperately enter hibernation mode before you lose any more IQ points from the sudden mental toxicity.
PS: If you don’t know who David All is, good on you and don’t worry about it. Also, don’t click through past Pejman’s post.
