The Samsung Galaxy S7 and likely other Samsung phones can be booted into safe mode with the volume down button.
However, if you damaged and bent your phone at the button like I did, you might end up with a situation where you can't get out of it. Oddly, in normal use, the button is non-functional. If I hit volume up, it doesn't go down on its down, so it's not stuck. Despite that, the boot process sensed something wrong, so it just be some kind of short.
I did manage to get it to boot normally, though. I just pushed as hard as I could to straighten the phone back out as it booted. I'm a wizard, Harry. Hope this helps someone.
Every time I watch a Studio Ghibli movie, I see something new. 😭
yeah, i'm THAT troll.
The first day of #LFNW completely devoured all the swag at the #Ubuntu booth so the second day we only had a few @kubuntu stickers but filled up the empty space with soc.ialis.me and Riseup @stickers which will probably leave a lot of people thinking we're a bunch of radicals. Incidentally, they're not wrong!
Strictly for the headstrong, only for the hardcore: 999 BPM. Only question remaining is whether or not this person got their plate by accident or they had it custom because they're into speedcore.

Luc Besson's Léon: The Professional is a freaking great #film. It has absolutely perfect pacing, full of suspense and rich characters. The acting, not normally something I pay too much attention to, is phenomenal. Gary Oldman plays a seriously jaded and sadistic DEA agent, a tween Natalie Portman seeking revenge against him for killing her family, and Jean Reno, the master hitman she develops a very unique relationship with. Highly, highly recommended.
Amazing second hand find: vintage Midnight Sun #bike oil lamp! Unfortunately it was nasty inside. Wick guide tube looked damaged and also looked totally gunked up with nasty old oil. Nearly impossible to get to the oil reservoir except through the fill hole and it looked like something died in there. I would have easily taken it on for a project, but not for $60! Fucking capitalism.
I love working at a place where someone starts a joke and then everyone pitches in tu take it to the nth level
