Today I found out axolotls are the top aquatic predator in their natural habitats, feeding on all other aquatic creatures they can manage to violently suck into their tubby maws 😍

Asshole techbros are what will break federation, not blocking.

Sorry, AUTHORIZED_FETCH. I think you get it.

Scraping 

I feel like this sort of thing happens every few months...
First, 'enable unauthorized access to public TL' had been off all along, but UNAUTHORIZED_FETCH was not. I was wondering why it wasn't and oh, it's because it breaks federation with certain instances, ones which we, at the time, had a lot of follows on.

I've since turned this one.

I hate this, but to be clear: Your posts here are never going to be totally private, even with these things on, there are some fairly straightforward workarounds if you really want to scrape.

Please take care with whatever personal information you post on here in particular, since at the end of the day, I'm just one dumbass and by no means a security expert.

time has no meaning so i just realized today I have a postdoc application due in 2 weeks lmao.

so much of the internet is trying to parse when someone is actually a bad person and when they @'d "covfefe" at the wrong person at the wrong time "without their consent" or whatever. not only does this take away from the value and impact of sincerely necessary callouts etc., it's confusing and well, it makes me not like people lol

its okay to just not like someone bc they annoy you or are a dick or whatever, you dont have to have a reason that needs citations from critical theorists to do so. sometimes the person who you dont like is just a prick, they dont have to be the snidely whiplash of structural violence

looking at more gig bags and there's one where amazon is trying to upsell me on a 90-day "phone support" service for it, as if I am going to receive a bag and be unable to understand that you use a bag by putting things inside the bag

lip stains are just the coward's cosmetic lip tattoo

rant/dog de*th 

for example: one dog, a bulldog she rescued, was much loved. but rather than die a dignified death in the comfort of her home like she should have, this woman let her roam around even when she was sick. she described how she came home to find that her elderly bulldog had submerged herself up to her neck in mud in a pond to die due to instinct or to soothe the pain or something, dragging her out while ugly crying, and digging a grave in the middle of the night, while ugly crying. like. honey? this kind of shit doesn't need to happen every time...this gruesome lifestyle is a choice at this point...you dont live in a southern gothic novella....

rant 

i know a woman who is a sweetheart, but she insists on this adopted redneck lifestyle of letting her dogs wander around in her rural area with no fence or whatever. every dog she has dies in some fucked up way as a result, and she posts about it *every* time in excruciating detail. she has a blind dog she lets just roam around too? and he got lost recently? like how is she surprised? he's obviously also going to die in some traumatic way someday and she's going to explain how in a 500 word creative nonfiction status update on FB, why is she acting like this isnt going to happen. It happens every time! stop letting your dogs roam around in the woods unsupervised for hours at a time...learn from past patterns....

the people in all of those "happiest/healthiest" countries lists have social programs to help citizens thrive lol it has nothing to do with how hygge or shinto their spaces are, capitalist consumption will not save us, caring for each other will

thank you for replying to my shitpost with a sincere answer. stop that
