hey if anybody's interested in trying out a new reddit alternative called tildes, lmk and i'll send you an invite. it's currently a small-ish community with a couple hundred active members, but the creator's goal is to curate a space with higher standards for quality content and respectful discussion. there's way more interesting stuff on there i've discovered because the feed isn't just memes and circlejerky posts. definitely a solid 8/10 for me.

Oh!

I haven't posted about it for legit like a year but there is, in time, in the "tapestry of history," to extend the metaphor, weft and warp. (In fact, that's how I know the idiom, "time's weft and warp."

Warp is thread that is fastened to the loom, so it doesn't move while you work on the piece. Weft is the thread that you "stitch" through the warp to make the cloth or whatever you're weaving.

You can't change the warp of history.

You can change the weft.

What happen is the intersection

hahah one of the airbnb leasers who also runs a neighboring bar, parked while I was loading materials into a mutual aid transport, and she looked at me, at the other anarchist, back at me, at the posters I've put up, at her 11 year old son, and they got back in the car and parked in front of her bar instead.

People /really/ hate anarchists living in anarchy: we demonstrate the fallacy of one of their fundamental beliefs: things control others.

Stop what you're doing and watch this:

Italians have recorded messages to themselves, ten days ago.

It's estimated the United States is approximtaely 10 days behind Italy, in our pandemic's progression.

"I'm sure you've heard of Corona Virus. And I'm also pretty sure you're underestimating it."

"The worst case scenario? That's exactly what will happen."

We've seen places without a tenth of our resources such as Venezuela, Vietnam, Cuba etc respond so much more efficiently and effectively than we have when it comes to putting public safety first and making sure people are 1. ok and 1. know what to do.

The explosion of sickness is directly proportional to how lazy officials are when it comes to national health.

We saw this w/ Katrina. We saw this w/ Flint.

As with most things in the US we could and should be doing better.

We just... don't.

All classes move online. Zoom is unable to handle the server load of every campus in the country, so professors seek out other methods.

One professor announces they are now hosting classes in a Garry's Mod DarkRP server.

Another moves to World of Warcraft.

Someone opens a Minecraft server with a 1:1 recreation of campus.

Chaos ensues.

YES, I'm gay. NO, nobody "turned" me gay. In fact, I've actually had very little encouragement, sort of done it all myself, sought out my own opinions and influences. What I'm saying is, it would have been NICE if people WERE trying to turn me gay, or make me more gay, or reinforce how gay I am. Whose job is that exactly please, this is a complaint letter
