Modern monetary theory seems like a useful way to explain to pseudo-intellectual libs that money isn't real but also the way I've seen it mostly discussed is in purely capitalist terms where money not being real actually doesn't change anything.

tip to not fuck up your friend’s pronouns, especially if they’ve changed their pronouns recently: practice them when your friend isn’t around
practice your friend’s pronouns to yourself out loud. repeat phrases that you often say about them with the correct pronouns to yourself. likewise if they ask you to use a different name, say their name and pronouns to yourself over and over again. mistakes happen, but you can reduce the frequency of the mistakes by practicing

"Nintendo is using my open source project."
Cool. How do you feel that the time you spent on it is being used for someone to make money while not spending any to make it, your name just got found out 'cause someone was bored enough to read a long list of licensing notes and you won't even get a free console, no matter how much money Nintendo is saving by using your project and not doing it themselves?
Maybe you shouldn't have picked MIT. Just sayin'.

Turkey seeks to sell ton of olive oil from occupied #Afrin to the US.

So it's been a while coming but I'm finally losing my housing, soon. (Folk who've followed me for a while are familiar with my unusual work/housing situation, but it's... well, unusual.)
Looking for a new place for me, my partner, and our cat. Lots of mechanisms for securing housing aren't available for us, so if anyone knows of a person around the Triangle, in North Carolina, that'll work with us, please let me know.
