      "Why is camping so extreme?" "Because it's in 3D!"

        OK...you're cluing ALL of my puzzles from now on.
        Got anything punny for IDI AMIN?

          "Their name is an anagram of (and usually wouldn't appear) IN A MIDI"
          • Brian Callahan constructor · 2023-05-24T15:27:06.838Z
            IDI AMIN also anagrams to MINI AID...which is the service you just provided!

        2D rules! So mad we're all stuck with QWERTY

            Ha! I've never used it, but I feel like it'd have about the same value as learning Esperanto. It definitely seems less stressful on the fingers (at least if you're typing English words)
            • seanm 🤓2:08 · 2023-05-24T14:07:17.678Z
              I tried learning it once.. when I first switched, my words per minute went from like 120 down to 9. I didn't have the patience to build it back up, just came crawling back to QWERTY with my tail between my legs 😝

            Hmmmm I really want to try a DVORAK keyboard and at the same time maybe don't wanna grab a beer with someone contrarian enough to use a DVORAK keyboard? (Did not know about these... thanks!)
          • Mike D 🤓33s · 2023-05-24T15:50:53.559Z
            OK this is finally the time where I semi-shamefully admit that this entire site has been coded using DVORAK 😯
            • Brian Callahan constructor · 2023-05-24T16:45:47.690Z
              I appreciate your courage coming out as a DVORAK user. Consider this QWERTY user an ally🤝

                🙏

                Wow!

                Very fun!

                  Excellent

                      Nice one.

                        Fun! I loved the theme, and the clever way you handled a Q in a mini.
