May I present to you:

Actually usable scroll bars.

Real-world use cases:

1. Scrolling up/down.

2. Scrolling left/right.

climate collapse 

Thanks Bill Gates and Kurzgesagt for admitting reducing individual carbon footprints will do nothing to stop climate collapse. However,
voting for different political candidates and consuming differently is not gonna prevent the apocalypse either. The people with the most economic and political influence are those who profit the most from turning the planet into Venus. And we're not gonna change that through the representative democratic process and not through consumerism either.

tech complaint 

had to clean out my usbc port real well to fix battery charging, and in the process caused some problems with the speaker and front camera. speakers needed to be unclogged after their lint solidified into mortar, and the front cam got alcohol vapor behind the lens so it's foggy and slowly getting better

building the future is not a purely technical project, I don't even think it's a primarily technical project. it's a project of community and people, which is to say is inherently political. I think that word is a turn off to many programmers in the West who (due to Cold War era education I guess?) are effectively politically illiterate. and when you insist on being "apolitical" then all you can do is bolster the status quo. this is not how you make progress.
