Pinned toot

(to pair with my )

I've been: A misogynist, a racist, a republican, a Bernie supporter, a neoliberal, a catholic, a politician, an employer, and countless other things of which I am ashamed.
My sheltered ignorance and bourgeois programming are my lame-ass defence.
I only hope that if people like Saul of Tarsus and Carne Ross can walk the path of redemption that I might follow in their footsteps.

Hi, I'm Tim. I was never on Tumblr. I work in retail and deal with my fair share of boobs every day thank you very much. I joined Sunbeam City for thoughtful Anarchist discussion and have yet to be disappointed. Probably one of the oldest tooters on this instance, I thank you in advance for your patience as I'm still unlearning decades of privilege and conditioning. I can contribute & to the milieu.

Hey 'Beamers! Just testing a new install of # toot on my pi here. Nothing special. You can toot from your *nix command line too!

What would you like to see in our solarpunk future?

It's so easy to talk about what you don't want in the future, but harder to pin down what you do want. So my idea is simply to capture and share your ideas the kind of things you want to see in a solarpunk future.

You can read my post, which describes this in a bit more detail:

Then feel free to start submitting your ideas, which I'll collate them and create a new post to inspire and share.

How much harder life is for people when the tongue of 21st century colonial hegemony isn't their native language.

Would a language with just 123 words be easy to learn?
Tuesday, 28 July, 2015
Made up of just one hundred and twenty three words, Toki Pona, created by Toronto based linguist Sonja Lang, sounds exactly like the minimal sort of language I could get into. While communicating clearly through a language with so few words might sound like it is fraught with peril, it is still possible to express just about any concept:

"While the Oxford English Dictionary contains a quarter of a million entries, and even Koko the gorilla communicates with over 1,000 gestures in American Sign Language, the total vocabulary of Toki Pona is a mere 123 words. Yet, as the creator Sonja Lang and many other Toki Pona speakers insist, it is enough to express almost any idea. This economy of form is accomplished by reducing symbolic thought to its most basic elements, merging related concepts, and having single words perform multiple functions of speech."

@MoreHuman I read this and then checked out what was available in the UK. Found this company, which includes a guardian scheme where you pay a one-off fee for a kit. They then they send you cocoons in Spring, the bees emerge, pollinate, then lay larvae, which you send back in Autumn. Then the following Spring they send you a new batch of cocoons for free, and the process starts again.

Sounds like a great way to help the bees & get pollinators in your garden.

Last year I looked into hosting Mason Bees in my yard. I never got around to it yet.
As compared to European Honey Bees, Masons are better pollinators and actually aren't an invasive species as opposed to EHBs. They are very docile but don't produce anything tangible we can exploit.

For folks in apartments or with small yards they're a great project and many resources are available online about how to make an area inviting to them.

Here is one overview of the MB:

Hello everybody. I'm new to Mastadon and I've joined a Welsh instance and this solarpunk instance. I discovered solarpunk online and am very intrigued. I hope to learn more about this fascinating counter-culture. I hope it will inspire me to make my corner of the world a better place.
