the life of a typical American

your life


Choose life.
Choose a job.
Choose a career.
Choose a family,

Choose a fucking big television
Choose washing machines, cars,
Compact disc players, and electrical tin openers.
Choose good health, low cholesterol

And dental insurance.
Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments.
Choose a starter home.
Choose your friends.

Choose leisure wear and matching luggage.
Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase
In a range of fucking fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who you

Are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing
Sprit-crushing ga me shows
Stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth.

Choose rotting away at the end of it all,
Pishing you last in a miserable home
Nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish,
Fucked-up brats

You have spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future. Choose life.

Datepicker with Laravel

jQuery UI datepicker
Bootstrap datepicker by Andrew Rowls
Zebra Datepicker
Datepicker by Stefan Petre
Pickadate by Amsul

When choosing a date picker library it is important that it works with many different date formats, supports many languages, is easy to skin, and works with many screen sizes (responsive). Pickadate library was chosen for this book because it satisfies all of these requirements while staying very small in size.

“Design+Code is a wake-up call. Why should I learn a web based technology or a deprecated tool when the obvious choice is to learn Xcode?”
“Thanks to @MengTo, I was able to get a rough prototype of my first app working this weekend.”
