Shit, getting some pushback on my hugel garden bed because apparently I should have just burned the wood or sold it as firewood rather than build something from it...

It's shocking to me how in some schools in poor, working class areas you can have free school events and so on, but across town a kid's family might have to pay six digits just to play on a sports team. It could be dependent upon the attitude of the admin

The fact that they have the fees and fines and fares at all just leads me to believe it's a way to hassle the poor and/or unsheltered. Just neoliberal nonsense

Portland's TriMet is launching a big anti-fare-hopping push. What if you just... Didn't do that. It's just criminalizing poverty. Most of the budget for TriMet comes from payroll taxes.

Or bus fares here in Eugene, same deal. Or the fines and fees at the library. These things could be done away with completely with no impact on services

I think a lot about public services that aren't primarily supported by public-facing fines and fees. Why the fuck have the fines and fees? Just... Don't have them.

Note: it's not actually pee. They're just excreting excess water. If there's no urine involved, it can't be bee pee

I like to unsettle people by referring to this season not as fall or autumn but as "The Harvest"

@interneteh I recently learned there's a service to help connect people who have compost with those who would like to use some! It's supposedly global but kind of really depends on others using it in your area
