Here's my alt on Myass:


I will probably be looking for another alt in the future but for now please follow me there.

Haven't done much today but here's what I've gotten done so far:
- Signed up for Disroot
- Baked the world's best bread ( sourdough, roasted tomatoes, cheese, crushed dried peppers etc.)
- Got my Latin assignment done.
- Prepped a fresh jar of kefir.
- Found my lost earbuds.

* Still need to look over BrontideJournal's spreadsheets and set up future article ideas, water potatoes and ginger, exercise.

Employees at home are being photographed every 5 minutes by an always-on video service to ensure they're actually working — and the service is seeing a rapid expansion since the coronavirus outbreak. Welcome to dystopia.

All the disbanded cults like Heaven's Gate combined can't hold a candle to the cult that is capitalism.

Capitalism's death rate is exponentially higher than communism and one only needs to compare the eventual coronavirus death counts of the USA and China to see that. Even right now, in the USA's early days for this pandemic, we're already soaring above China's death rates.

Privatization and individualism -- two of the core beliefs of capitalism -- are harmful. Period.

“Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing the things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry and even whittle statues. The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.”

— Will Durant, "Life", Oct. 18, 1963

A field mouse sneaked inside our house, has barricaded himself under a bookcase, and is nervous eating a potato chip. I can't blame him... Hopefully he'll leave. I'm gonna put some chips on the back porch and leave the door open.

Today, we need companies to step up by providing repair instructions, specifications, and technical aid to the global volunteer corps of makers and fixers who have given themselves over to helping us all weather this calamity.

We’re Sharing Coronavirus Case Data for Every U.S. County - With no detailed government database on where the thousands of coronavirus cases have been reported, a team of New York Times journalists is attempting to track every case

Rather than seeing himself as human because he could make economic calculations, the hunter insisted that being truly human meant refusing to make such calculations, refusing to measure or remember who had given what to whom, for the precise reason that doing so would inevitably create a world where we began "comparing power with power, measuring, calculating" and reducing each other to slaves or dogs through debt.

begpost, I need of food funds 

Today's Accomplishments:

- Overhauled greenhouse
- Transplanted what was left of my ginger
- Helped construct moccassins
- Traced moccassin pattern
- Dehydrated sweet peppers
*Family planted the pear and apple tree at the house we are gutting so the HOA can't force us to destroy them. It has black mold, water damage etc. Thankfully though... No HOA so that's where we are going to be gardening.

Tomorrow I wanna water the potatoes in a bucket and move them. I also, would like to water the ginger, do some research on preservation and fermentation, and get my Latin assignment done for the week. I wanna do research on kombucha leather and the possibility of making it water resistant.

This pattern can be easily modified. Just trace your foot for the sole first and modify as needed. If you don't have leather strips for sewing it, you can use ribbon (be careful of fraying!) or even a thin paracord.

Need a basic moccassin pattern? Here ya go! Just double the pattern!

“We need acts of restoration, not only for polluted waters and degraded lands, but also for our relationship to the world. We need to restore honor to the way we live, so that when we walk through the world we don’t have to avert our eyes with shame, so that we can hold our heads up high and receive the respectful acknowledgment of the rest of the earth’s beings.”

— Robin Wall Kimmerer, Braiding Sweetgrass

OMG... I don't know who did it but two people sent me some money. Thank you so much. <3 <3

I'm so far down the list on mutual aid request forms it'll be next year before I get any financial help and while I need it, I can't help but think of everyone else who needs it even more than me and how long they are going to have to wait. We need to come up with a better system.
