I really need to get some seeds in the ground, but before that I've gotta go get seeds.

Just straight up, we shouldn't make paper out of trees. Trees are too important of a resource to make something intended for a single use. We're probably not going to be able to avoid building with wood, but we need to transfer our paper production to something that doesn't take 20 years to grow (like hemp).

Even when airport security manages to go somewhat smoothly, there's always so many bumps and hitches that my anxiety goes through the roof

Piping hot take: All Star by Smash Mouth is a relatable and good song about trying to survive and stay positive while living in a capitalist world surrounded by poverty and climate change.

Now I'm going on a walk through the snow to buy some weed and it'll be good

Well, I'm better now. Me and my girlfriend talked about things and apologized and I realized that maybe watching bladerunner 2049 wasn't the best for my fear of climate change

A break is just a mouth and a nose combined

How will the federated timeline work as mastadon grows? Like, it's already going pretty fast. Will it eventually become practically unreadable?

In retrospect I probably should have put this under a read more. Sorry folks.

The fact that there are plants that are illegal in the first place is utterly ubsurd anyway.

Psilocibin mushrooms have the potential to treat depression, anxiety, and addiction, but are currently classified as a drug with no medical benefits, which makes it very difficult to study. In Oregon, there are efforts to decriminalize and reclassify them so that they may be used in theraputic settings. If you live in Oregon, please support this. If you live somewhere else and there is similar legislation, please support that. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk.
