My accounts!
@adeptomega - General account. Very furry, plus slice of life stuff, politics, shitposting, plus I'll talk about my chainmail crafts occasionally.

@adeptomega - Solarpunk account! A lot of my gardening stuff will go here, some politics, some futurism, some socialism.

Hey, lemme reach out to you all for a second.
The years since the last election has been varying degrees of terror and hell for us all. I can’t pretend to know what the future holds, but i’m glad you’re hanging in there and surviving at very least. Times are allowed to be bad, but keep mind that nothing lasts, but nothing is lose. Keep being you and keep fighting. It’s a dark, hard time, but i am glad you’re here to keep it a bit lighter, okay? :)

It is now illegal in Pennsylvania to donate a book to someone incarcerated.

Instead, books must be purchased as ebooks through prison profiteer GTL or ordered through the DOC

This is an attack on gift economies and free speech/culture while expanding the surveillance capitalist, carceral state.

Navajo folks. Need your help. Can you send me any symbols that are hard to type on an English keyboard so I can copy paste them, including the l with the dash across it, any of the vowels with the ç under it, etc. Ahéhee'!

For anyone who missed it (I forgot to thread it here):
I made it to the summit! Also a few thoughts on the way down.

The trip down Show more

I did it! Current elevation: 1600 feet! I've climbed Cougar Mountain!

I'm pretty sure I'm on the mountain ridge now. Lots of up and down. I'm close!

2/4 quarts

Update: Passed the point where I had to go back last time. Reception spotty. Estimate I'm over 900 feet along the summit slope now. I am starting to see sky through the trees at the top. Will keep y'all updated 💚

2.5/4 quarts remaining

Summit climbing update: 400 ft up, started 30 minutes ago. Think I'm managing a bit better than last week, though I'm noticing the extra weight.

3/4 quarts of hydration remaining

Alright! I'm going to pack up and take attempt 2 at making my first summit climb!

It's not a mountain that's particularly noteworthy for its height; the climb is 1200 feet (peak @ 1600 ft, 400 ft starting elevation). But it's a first step!

I've brought twice as much hydration this time, including both water and sports drink with electrolytes.

Wish me luck!

"The world's unfair, kiddo" is not an argument for "then allow unfairness", but instead is an argument for "Then make the world *FAIR*"
