Microsoft UI Sucks

Can someone explain to me why in the wide, wide world of sports would Microsoft develop Teams, a clear counterpart to Outlook, with a completely different look and feel?

On macOS, they don’t even use the same UI font. Outlook uses the system font (San Francisco) and Teams uses the Windows system font (Segoe UI), and of course, it cannot be changed via preferences, and they’ve apparently embedded Segoe in the app, since I don’t have it installed anywhere on my devices.

I am, primarily, using the macOS versions of these tools, not Windows. As much as Microsoft pretends to keep these tools in sync with their Windows counterparts, there are big misses, like these UI differences between Outlook and Teams.

The Difference Between Bourbon and Whiskey

This is super important. Pay attention.

There are two main differences when it comes to distinguishing between whiskey and bourbon. The first is the mixture of grains used to distill the alcohol, with bourbon being distilled from at least 51% corn. The second difference is where it is made, with “whiskey” traditionally being distilled in the USA or Ireland and “whisky” being distilled in Scotland, Japan, or Canada.

Every Jim Carrey Performance, Ranked

Although I don’t really agree with the rankings, I am a huge Jim Carrey fan. Me, Myself & Irene at number 20? Pfft.

Jim Carrey was both a phenom and a late-career bloomer. He dropped out of high school to work both as a janitor — his family was briefly homeless and relying on his salary — and as a stand-up comedian; he was opening for Rodney Dangerfield and touring his home country of Canada before he was old enough to vote. But then he moved to Hollywood, and despite some bit roles (Earth Girls Are Easy, one of Nicolas Cage’s buddies in Peggy Sue Got Marriedan Axl Rose lip-syncing rock star in The Dead Pool), it never really came together for him. But he stuck with it — famously writing himself in 1985 a postdated $10 million check ten years in the future for “acting services rendered” — and after landing on In Living Color, he bagged a weird little script he didn’t even like called Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, decided to rewrite the whole thing himself, and almost instantly became the biggest movie star in the world.
