Are you tired of your code crashing?

Are you attempting to index a nil value and it just won't work?

(There's got to be a better way!)

INTRODUCING: NILISM!

Nilism makes nil a first class value, allowing ALL operations on it to work!

Just `require "nilism"` and you're good to go!

(Since I started using nilism, my code has become 500% more efficient, with ZERO crashes!)

Don't take our word for it, try it today for FREE!

Nilism: no gods, no crashes, only nil!

What is my common drop? What is my rare drop?

2. Here is a GLSL shader you can edit into KDE yourself

compilers shall continue breaking until morale improves

Will people fucking stop subtooting other people's takes in this sassy "look at how bad and wrong this person is" way, it's so incredibly not constructive and feels like childish drama gossip. I was constantly fucking terrified that I'll say or do something stupid or ignorant without realizing and people will just talk shit about it behind my back, I thought I was being paranoid and people would be better than that but thanks for confirming I was wrong I guess

I bumped the letter spacing up once and it became too much. So I pushed it back down and now I have negative letter spacing??????

Additionally, lets talk about "high contrast". Rather than raising the contrast between components on the page, it applies a contrast filter over the render. As a result, it can sometimes make things worse.
