Guess What I’ll Be Doing Today While You Chat on the Friday Open Thread?

8:55 AM CDT on May 5, 2023


Happy Friday, Racket readers. As always, it's time for our weekly open thread, where you talk amongst yourselves, unfettered by demands of relevance. No lie—seeing you all interact here has become a highlight of the week.

Not to make it all about me, but while you're all gabbing here, I'll be slipping out today to get a colonoscopy. Wish me luck!
