bladder: I'VE GOT TO PEE
me: NO! In a zone.

I hate this game. I lose every time.

    Guess what I use phone for when in such situation. Bless the cloud. I have git repos synced through cloud, so everywhere I go I can calmly drop my ass and continue where I stop or even code on the go. Pity that android doesn't come with git preinstalled, it'd be much better.

    @bdonald local repo synced, which means even protection against hardware corruption if the cloud provides file versions + remote as a backup. Beautiful. :)

    You probably shouldn't push it. Holding back the pee will cause issues later on

    @xroad I'm quite aware of that and for the most part I try not to. In those times when my brain is really firing and I seem to making good progress; that's when these games begin. "I know I need to stop and go, but I've got to work this out. Because walking away now could mean losing the focus." There aren't many wins here.
