comment In a popup with “yes” and “no” buttons , you put “yes” or “no” first?
@nathanhayfield: Chinese is left-to-right when written horizontally, and you should source your claim that people read buttons the same way they read body text.

comment How to incorporate a “never” value on a slider?
For what it’s worth, I equate “delete after 0 days” with “delete immediately”; the fact that 0 is used to mean “never” is an implementation detail.

comment Why do most public toilet doors open inwards?
A lot of public restrooms (for instance, on the New York Thruway) have no doors at all, with a bent hall that occludes any line of sight twixt outside and in.

@SimonRichter: The empirical weights are usually given as 30:59:11, so that’s right.

comment Why is it impossible to deselect HTML “radio” inputs?
@WesleyMurch: We use panels, buttons, sliders, meters, checkboxes, icons, labels, and knobs exactly like their physical counterparts. If you want radio buttons to be deselectable, you’re thinking about radio buttons wrong. You should use checkboxes and restrict them to a single selection—because that’s how it’s done on paper forms.

comment Why is it impossible to deselect HTML “radio” inputs?
It’s a logical physical analogy: with actual radio/tape player buttons, you can’t “unpush” a button—unless of course you push in two at once just enough that the depressed one releases but the un-depressed one doesn’t catch, but that’s just silly.

comment Traffic lights: “yellow” is progress, not state
To my mind, yellow just means “clear intersection”, and the assumption is that you're allowed a reasonable amount of time to do so.

@Lie Ryan: Actually, it was “I sorely doubt comprehending something retaining practically zero letters (containing not nearly the same information) is so simple. If your conjecture is true, then this comment ought to pose you no difficulty”. Close, though!

@Matt Fun fact: that's just a meme, not citing any actual research, and its claims are easily falsifiable.
