I will never understand the enterprise sales approach of feigned outrage from sales people when I do not respond to their third unsolicited email pitching me something I have no interest in.

“Stowaway” would have been an amazing movie had I not seen the exact same plot in 3 other “mission to Mars” movies/tv shows.

I just learned “gay Siri” is close enough to trigger “hey Siri” effectively and will use it from now on.

In high school, my Español class watched an educational telenovela called “Destinos”. We never finished the series and I randomly thought about it today.
