plural stuff, anxieties-- 

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

We should just get RID of the bourgeoisie so we never have to spell it again

Stop giving nazis the benefit of the fuckin doubt

Why was I stuck in traffic today?

Oh right, because GM bought up and destroyed almost all of America's streetcars

Just a reminder of a very important lifehack: you can make small batches of cookies in a toaster oven.

A related lifehack: you can make a batch of cookie dough and freeze it.

Now COMBINE THEM and live your best life.

(I roll my cookie dough into a log wrapped in saran wrap, freeze the log, and slice off a few coins when I want some cookies)

Was talking about Mastodon with an old-school sysadmin guy. We reached the realization that defederating from instances with no/bad moderation is essentially the same thing as blocking open relays back when you ran your own email server: open relays always end up getting used for spam, you block 'em to protect your users.

Email was and still is the first federated social network, so it already faced a lot of the same problems; we should study its solutions (and its failures).

hey admins 

we talk about internalzied transmisia and ableism etc but what about the internalized law of excluded middle and non-contradiction?

how to fake global illumination:

1. for each point on a surface, ask yourself "if I was a tiny bug sitting on the surface of this object, what would the sky look like?"
2. think more about being a bug
3. enjoy thinking about being a bug
4. make a bugsona
5. make friends with other bugs
6. find a function that approximates the average sky colour. this will be a proxy for the hemispherical integral, and add that on top of any specular contribution
