Florida pol, voting rights (please get out and do something if you're in FL) Show more
The Florida legislature and governor are trying to pass a law that would essentially overturn the *amendment to the state constitution* that was passed by a *supermajority* of FL voters giving ex-felons the right to vote.
Despite the fact that the amendment is self-executing, the republican controlled government is trying to take this right away.
Call, protest, scream, do SOMETHING, please, FL.
does anyone wanna help me and my fiancé afford to get food today lmao https://www.paypal.me/ashleyvillers
How to ask for money without hurting other people: Show more
Poverty is hard. Asking for help is hard. I get it like you wouldn't believe.
But please don't spread your internalized shame.
"I'm sorry to do this"
"I hate myself for having to ask"
"This is embarrassing"
Other people in your situation see this and might be deterred from asking for help.
They shouldn't be shamed, and neither should you. I know it's uncomfortable, but don't shame yourself or others. It isn't your fault.
What would Carnival Games be like in a Solarpunk World?
Like obviously it those games exist in our current world to scam money out of children with the promise of cheap prices, but at the same time they are a lot of fun and I can't exactly imagine a Festival without some form of games of chance.
Would they be the same but give a prize to all participants? Or would the types of games themselves change offering no price but being more fun to play?
The City is flooded up to the third story due to global warming so in order to solve two problems at once the Green City uses Solar power to heat water in narrow tubes to create steam to drive the generators, while also desalinating clean drinking water.
My little brother pointed out that this water would then need to be cooled to drink which would take more energy than it produced so I had to find some creative solutions. During the warmer months of the year the hot water is collected in Giant Buckets on top of three skyscrapers and dumped into what used to be Times Square into a collection device at the bottom. During the colder months it's used to supplement the heating system that I never really established because it wasn't nearly as interesting as the Boiling Falls

Fiction, Robots in Solarpunk Show more
One of the Origins in Under the Open Sky TTRPG are a group of Robots called Ferroverks. Having long out lived the people who created them, they have no needs besides energy and occasional repairs. They have taken to the stars in search of knowledge, adventure, meaning.
I have a number of reasons for creating them. The first was that they were people with out needs, or rather for who all needs were easily attainable and thus found that they had freedom to do Anything they Wanted.
Then there is the history of Robot Apocalypse being used a metaphor for class uprising because capitalism makes us into automatons our only purpose to make profit for capitalists. My Ferroverks have free will they have the ability to reject the purpose for which they were made. They represent an anxiety I have about a post-rev world, the uncertainty that comes with not having a purpose, but in it also the freedom to decide for yourself.
