Forty Examples of Christian Privilege

As rescued from the Internet Archive's copy of http://pirate.shu.edu/~schlosle/cpexamples.htm

  1. It is likely that state and federal holidays coincide with my religious practices, thereby having little to no impact on my job and/or education.
  2. I can talk openly about my religious practices without concern for how it will be received by others.
  3. I can be sure to hear music on the radio and watch specials on television that celebrate the holidays of my religion.
  4. When told about the history of civilization, I am can be sure that I am shown people of my religion made it what it is.
  5. I can worry about religious privilege without being perceived as "self-interested" or "self-seeking."
  6. I can have a "Jesus is Lord" bumper sticker or Icthus (Christian Fish) on my car and not worry about someone vandalizing my car because of it.

Multi-line strings in JavaScript

Playing around with concepts shown by Sindre Sorhus in https://github.com/sindresorhus/multiline, which had some optimizations that confused me about the idea's basis.

Paste me into your JavaScript console:

var getMultiLineString = function(func) { 
  var ret, str, temp;
  ret = '';
