So students at my school do "shitposiums" every year concurrent with the official Student Symposium Series. This year, we've got:
5:50 - Pokémon and Morality
6:05 - Weird Things on the Radio
6:20 - Russian Orthodoxy and How it Came to America
6:35 - Classical Memes for Hellenistic Teens
6:50 - Vexillology: The Study of Flag Symbols
7:20 - Everything Wrong with Reptiles in Cinema
7:35 - MONOPOLY™ : Let's Give it a GO!
8:25 - The Hot Second and Other Units of Measurement
8:45 - WTF the Fuck is Homestuck?
More fun highlights from Sh!tposiums:
- Finding the biblical definition of an "ass-load" in "The Hot Second"
- Actual regional flags actually made in MS Paint in "Vexillology"
- Greek deity energy alignment charts in "Classical Memes"
- Precise comparisons of CGI reptile heads
- The organizer emitting a deep sigh while pointing at a chart of all the trolls from Homestuck in "WTF the Fuck is Homestuck"

Rural politics Show more
I've never lived in an area that the Democrats gave two shits about. (really who does unless you live in the white part of DC, the "nice" parts of New York City or Silicon Valley). First I was in a red state that Dems completely wrote off before I was born. Now I live in a blue state they take for granted. Socialist organizing is probably easiest to do in places Dems have either written off or take for granted. (of course, red state organizing comes with its own challenges)

Original posts mostly about cooking, Hellenic + Roman polytheisms, plants, ducks, shitposts, and personal stuff.
Sunbeam City is a Libertarian Socialist solarpunk instance. It is ran democratically by a cooperative of like-minded individuals.
