tbh anti-fascism was my last push into radicalism. I'd been drifting left for years but when people started pearl-clutching about punching Nazis, that launched me into getting serious about communism just because the communists were the only people who seemed to me to have a good answer to fascism.
& I really, REALLY hate fascists, lmao. I hate fascists *intimately*. I cannot give an adequate answer to why I spent so many years arguing with fascists online but it definitely made my hate strong!

Common Daisy - Eòinean - Bellis Perennis
Depending on your viewpoint these will either be the flower of happy childhood memories or an invasive weed ruining your carefullly cultivated green lawn. I'm 100% in the former camp.
It has been postulated that the word "daisy" comes from "day's eye" because the flower (in common with many others) closes overnight, before opening again in the morning.
The most popular trading card game is entirely open source. It's "owned" by a loose coalition of judges and tournament organisers, who publish the main tournament rules and valid cards for those tournaments.
The cards themselves are published by small print shops, who get their own information on how to avoid their card banned in tournaments. To use MTG as an example, maybe one mana shouldn't buy more than 2/2 or something equivalent.
This wpuld allow a far more dynamic game, and while maybe it would be hard to balance it would allow far more local game scenes without insane costs. Maybe special cards could be released in bubble gum packs like they were back in the day IDW.
thinking about transness as radical freedom. the idea that you dont inherently have to act a certain way based on categories that were assigned to you is scary to many but the truth is that it is incredibly liberating. i wish trans people didnt have to suffer so much for bringing this gift into the world
is this an autism thing? Show more
So I took a test that pip said helped them self dx as autistic before formally being diagnosed and it said I am very probably autistic.
I know an inability to discern sarcasm is a symptom and I'm pretty good at figuring out sarcasm when spoken and it's harder when in text but still manageable. but when I send text I can't help but think that I sound really rudely sarcastic.
Like I just postponed my tabletop session this week because a player is on vacation visiting a friend and I had a busy weekend and couldn't prepare.
When I wished my friend an enjoyable vacation I just couldn't help but think that they might think I was being snide and blaming them for our not having a session this week but I actually hope they have a really fun vacation.
It's amazing how quickly any space you set up for people to share resources with their neighbors will run out of room. Like you really just need to set a bit of real estate aside and make sure people know about it and there will be an immediate abundance
With evidence like this it's tempting to think the capitalist notion of natural human greed isn't true!

Regarding Panic and Hope Show more
Now Hope is the tricky part. Because the way we are told to hope, it is a passive verb. You sit, and you wait, and you hope.
But hope can be so much more than that. It can be the paper you draw your blueprint on. Hope can be that part of you that imagines exactly what a better world would look like as you function in this one. Hope will leak through into everything you do or say, this understanding that the future is not yet foresaken because you haven't given up.
And here's the real kicker: hope. Is. Sustainable.
Going out and finding things that make you hopeful for the future of this earth is going to be harder but more rewarding than going out and finding things that make you panic about where we are headed.
It is not the chickens with their heads cut off that will steer the ship when the captain dies. It is those who have prepared what they will do with the wheel once they take it that will be able to drive through the storm.
Don't devalue hope.

Day 2 Riding my bike to work today was a lot easier. I think I found the sweet spot for what gear I need to be in to tackle the hill on the way in.
Cool Down took a lot less time and I was breathing regularly and heart beating normally after about 15 minutes instead of two hours. Can't wait for my ride home.
I think next week if the wearther cooperates I'll ride in Monday Wednesday and Friday.
