a && (b || c) == a && b || a && c
Kinda the distributive property I would guess. Does it apply with things swapped out?

Yes. You can substitude x, y, and z for a, b, and c; and it will still work.

Literally the distributive property, I think, if you use boolean algebra as it was defined in your discrete maths textbook: boolean multiplication (and) and boolean addition (or)
How about (nor), and or (nand)?

I'm rather fond of exclusive-and (xand). The idea of "both and *only* both" is nice and redundant.
you *would* say that.
and you *would* say that.
I feel fueled by hatred and anger this morning.
FedEx Ground failed to deliver my package, citing that there wasn't anyone there to receive it.
So, I guess Melvin is chopped liver?
I phoned FedEx, found a hapless human being (with a mild Hispanic accent, which was actually kind of entertaining), and angrily asked how they propose to deliver something to me if their driver refuses to actually try.
I am actually willing to let them go through their three-day churn and return just to cost them money on this.
Oh, and some puckering sphinctoid cut me off in traffic this morning.

Namespace collisions do not necessarily mean that I endorse anything other than a logical exclusive and.

I'm trying to embrace my inner hate today, but it's kind of difficult for me.
I'll get to that video when I can... it looks amusing.
At the moment, I'm wondering why FedEx tracking states that my package is at the local FedEx facility, and not on a truck headed to my home at 14:20 hrs when yesterday it was on the vehicle to be ignored at 04:01 hrs.
Aaand, yeah, the rage is grown a bit.
Called and impotently asked for them to please send me the package that should have been delivered yestereday, and also asked what recourse I have to correct this issue.
Really not much I can do. "Customer Advocacy" strikes me as a buzzword that means 'Further fuck everything up' so I'm not sure how well I'll enjoy that experience. They said I could call the station manager and rage on or something over there, but shit, I don't see how that will work, either.
I should check to see how much I paid for this delivery and point out how much money they've lost from having me waste their precious time with phone calls (they record all the calls, which is an added expense) to kinda show that they're being fucking idiots. Although I don't know if anyone cares, honestly.
(And, for the record, this is FedEx Ground... usually, I experience this with UPS).
