Reminder that quitting vim with `:wq`, `:x`, or `ZZ` is dumb, you could just be going

` ps aux | grep vim | awk '{print $2}' | xargs kill -9`
@tealturtle @Tel whenever I wanna close vim I just ring the power company and cancel my houses conneciton, then start a new connection immediately

@tA @tealturtle

That reminds me of the biggest "dumb, but it works" hack I've ever heard of. The USSR had a televised talent contest and wanted everyone to vote on their favourite performers. But the phone system wasn't up to the task, so they had people turn their lights on to signal approval, and off to signal disapproval. Then the power company measured demand to judge the winners.


@Tel @tA @tealturtle same hack was used when Czechoslovak TV ran interactive series "Rozpaky kuchaře Svatopluka" back in 80s

@severak @tealturtle @tA @Tel and now they are doomed to have to put a big "do not vote, we're re-airing an 80's tv show" sign on the screen until the end of the time
