PSA, things about interacting with me, mild MH stuff.
I hesitate to self-DX just because I don't know, what if I'm wrong and I end up mistreating myself, or taking space away from someone who *actually has* a condition? So I won't put a name on it. But my vague guess is that there's Something Going On With Me that makes social interactions with me seem not-quite-right. So I just want to put this out there.
I do not interact to "get a rise out of people". That's not fun for me. I am sincerely never trying to bother, be a pain in the ass, creep on, or annoy anyone.
If I reply to something you post, it's simply because I have something to say about it. I am never trying to "logical debate" you. I hate that shit. I am never hitting on you. If I reply to something you say that seems tangential or knit-picky, that's just me being unintentionally asinine, and I'm not as mad as I might appear to be.
I think that covers most of the bases.
That said, if you're a Nazi/bigot, fuck you.

I like messing with Linux/Free Software, electronics, decentralized networks, encryption, making musical instruments, seizing the means of production, and yelling at cops.
I also like helping people when I can, but a lot of the time it feels like I'm the one in need of help.
Work is where you spend a third of your life, but it doesn't even come close to a third of who you are as a person.
Work is what facilitates you to be/come who you are outside of work, and that's actually a fucked up situation.
There shouldn't have to be any kind of transaction involved in you being yourself.
Found out that fighting with string is the main cat thing that #ShrimpJuiceTheCat likes to do.
@teslas_moustache I would be very interested in coverage by news orcs ("GROG PRICES! GOING DOWN", "MAN FLESH, BACK ON THE MENU? MORE AT ELEVEN!") tbh
In general, if you have any specific questions about:
1) Cooking, including breadmaking, yogurt and cheesemaking, and fermentation
2) Gardening, especially urban and guerrilla, as well as composting, vermiculture, soil remediation, and apiculture
3) Workplace organization and unionization
4) Emacs or Elisp
5) Protesting or Direct Action
I am probably happy to help answer them!
Please, always feel free to ask. Not just one question, I'll be your tutor in any or all these topics.
Not spending money is a non-optional part of a general strike. During strikes you can't cross the picket line, and during general strikes the picket line is everywhere
Don't feel bad if there's an unavoidable expense, but just try to avoid consumption as much as possible. If there's anything you're going to need next week, stock up on it now
@teslas_moustache weird, no mention of GM taking away their healthcare and forcing the union to have to handle the expenses instead? weird, wonder why corporate own news orgs would leave that bit out
So, I know that political parties are antithetical to the principles of anarchism, but hear me out:
If someone were to actually create an Anarchist-Syndicalist party for example, it might cut out a lot of misdirected noise coming from Republicans claiming that Democrats, I dunno, want to rip up the constitution or something. Raise taxes. Whatever. Because then there would be people who *actually* publicly support doing that.
This is a very dim-brain take.
Good morning, comrades! The temperature here is 73.5°F and Clear. It will be Clear throughout the day. Rain on Friday through next Wednesday, with high temperatures falling to 79°F on Sunday. Remember, drink plenty of water, eat something that's not processed junk food, and stretch before physical activity. Solidarity, and have a good day!
The audio of the lecture came out in good shape, and it sounds like it was recorded in a small space crammed full of people, because it was.
The file is too large to upload here and I have a good number of pics to share, so I am going to edit the two together as a slideshow video, and then I will be sharing a link to that here.
For those who are just dying for more intel, the people who shared their know-how are part of a medical collective focused on harm reduction and accessibility.
My first attempt at making little lavender bags. I grew and dried the lavender and have now put it in a couple of muslin bags. A small crop this year, as only young plants, but hope to make more next.
Will be using these in in my clothes cupboards to deter silverfish/moths from my clothes.
