    Why is pinterest such a piece of crap? It's this wonderful cornucopia of images that the idiot designers have made it hard to use.

    You can't open an image in a new tab (click on the image, and the whole page changes, losing all the images you just loaded, and there's no going back). You can't even treat the goddamned image like an image, say, right-click it and save it to disk or use tineye or other reverse image search.

    It's not easy, being that stupid. You have to work at it.

    Someone was showing me images of "where oceans meet" on Pinterest and I laughed. The pics showed marked contrast in the ocean to give the illusion that it *could* be what they say.. further research at my prodding, we find out that the contrast was sediment from glaciers off the Alaskan coast.. mud mixing with the ocean, not where two oceans meet. More stupidity.

    For some reason, Pinterest is working for me now. I couldn't get the damn thing to do anything for me before, but now it works like "normal." Maybe the gods heard my plaints.

    Infinite scrolling is still stupid, though.
