I've realized, after perusing other people's profiles, that I never properly introduced myself. So, here's my .

I'm Josh, and I'm a generalist. I have some skills in math and programming, I love philosophy, I'm trying to learn Japanese, and I have a degree in music. I'm interested in the Effective Altruism movement and am trying to find work there right now. Also, I've written a book of poems that are mostly geared towards kids. You can find me at ameyama.com!

God I haven’t tried DuckDuckGo in years and it’s like actually good now? I don’t know why I didn’t just give it a try. Ditching the big tech companies piece by piece

i have a theory that all food bloggers hate the world and want to take revenge on everyone else by attacking us with short autobiographies we have to read through before we can learn how to make tomato soup

Food blogs where each recipe has an introductory text about the author's life story and 10 photos of the food is a perfect example of things that nobody asked for but it's everywhere anyway

Free climate change protest sign idea: "Liar, Liar, Plants on Fire"

Borders are not real.

They're nothing more than lines drawn by people. Arbitrary. Imaginary.

Nationalism and patriotism make no sense. This planet belongs to all of us. And us to it.

An average car emits 650g of CO₂ per km driven. An average person travels 25km to get to work each day. Commuting by car emits an average of 32.5kg of CO₂ daily. (Based on data from the US.)

An adult tree absorbs up to 21.8kg of CO₂ per year. It would take one tree 1.5 years to absorb what one person can emit in a single day.

In the US alone, over 6 million more cars are registered annually. Each year we destroy 18.7 million acres of forest worldwide, killing roughly 1.1 billion trees.

I don’t understand littering. This place is your home. All of it. The whole planet. You live here. Why would you just throw your garbage around the place? 🌍

Do you think we could set up a plant and seed share on SBC?

This day has passed.
Our lives, too, are closing.
Like fish with little water,
Joy will not last.
Let us work with pure effort.
Work as we would were our heads aflame.
Be mindful of impermanence.
Be careful of idleness.

We need to talk about white-on-globe crime
