Wife: hey, I can just spend all of our back to school clothes budget on Halloween costumes

Here's a lion's mane mushroom if you've never seen one. Apparently eating them can heal your neurons. I just think they taste good

Like, I'm pretty into p2p tech and making software that works well on really old slow computers, but I've met many programmers (especially young ones) at meetups and such who reach for Google Cloud or AWS plus surveillence tracking tech *without even thinking about it*.

I once asked a programmer why they were adding user tracking to their web app and it seriously tripped them up! "Oh, uh, that's what everyone does, right?"

Remember: Having a job doesn't make you a capitalist. It makes you proletariat. Having a roof over your head is good. Making sure others have a roof over their heads too is better. Always use what resources you have to help others and keep learning. We exist in the world that is, but we must be constantly working towards a better one for all.

In these difficult times, a hero emerges. One who truly understands us.

Nature really likes crabs and keeps trying to evolve more of them.

Carcinisation is the name of a process of convergent evolution, in which crustaceans evolve into crab-like forms. In decapod crustatceans, there have been at least 5 distinct times when crab-like animals have evolved.

Coconut crabs, king crabs, and hermit crabs are not types of true crab, and are only distantly related.

For some reason people stopped talking about autonomous zones after the CHAZ was shut down, so most people don’t realize that both George Floyd Square in Minneapolis and the James Talib-Dean Memorial Encampment in Philadelphia are still autonomous 3 months later

They’re also both facing regular threats of invasion and could really use visibility and support. The cops are expecting to be able to clear these places out without anyone else noticing

it is weird when someone calls my politics unrealistic. I mean I haven't even gotten to the really unrealistic stuff. I want every politician and capitalist in jail and every bum and criminal in charge. I want to turn everything completely upside down because this world seems backwards to me. I think we can handle little things like giving people housing.

hacking every phone in the world to autocorrect "cancel culture" to "facing the consequences of your actions"
