my friend was telling a story today about a time he went to the gym and there was a super jacked beefy dude on a machine. and a guy comes in who is equally ripped, just completely chiseled from stone, and he goes up to the shorter beefy dude and say "nice lift! i'm trying to get big like you!" and the other guy says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the first guy steps a little bit closer and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the short guy stands up and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and this continues until they hug and slap each other on the back, still repeating the phrase
more people showed up and they repeated the entire ritual each time
(Well, in reality, only says the first part, because teammate.)
Noted this, as well as some other things I learned when writing emacs-lisp: https://newschematic.org/blog/writing-an-elisp-function/
Documentation string on a variable is pretty rad, though.
"The defvar special form is similar to setq in that it sets the value of a variable. It is unlike setq in two ways: first, it only sets the value of the variable if the variable does not already have a value. If the variable already has a value, defvar does not override the existing value. Second, defvar has a documentation string."
TIL that `defvar` in #emacs-lisp won't update a variable's value if it's already been set. No wonder I've been getting dates from last week, when I've been trying to get today's.
Moral of the story: upgrade either more often, or exclusively on company time.
do dope, fuck hope
