Being able to escape abusive people is fucking bad ass and @vantablack escaping their parents is amazing and shows how incredible they are. I only just met this person, and I feel like I already know they're powerful.

there is more than enough housing in america for every person to be off the streets, yet we still have involuntary homelessness

“violence” isn’t burning down a police station; violence is enforcing an economic system which intentionally deprives people of what they need to live

In light of the cancellation of this year's Gathering Of The Juggalos due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I would like to propose the "ICP Responsible Leadership Test" as a metric for evaluating corporate and political leadership going forward. Nobody gets to be in charge of anything if they are not demonstrably better at managing safety risk than The Insane Clown Posse.

So I'm teaching a gen-ed 1st year experience course about study skills in the spring.

The past people teaching this course have all used the same book...

It's called "How to Study in College."

This fucker costs $170 new, $130 used... or $60 to rent for a semester.

I laughed so fucking hard.

And then cried.

WHO THE FUCK NEEDS A $170 BOOK TO TEACH KIDS HOW TO STUDY?!?!?

Fuck that noise.

I'm going book less and doing all free handouts and readings and youtube videos.

Seems there are multiple Mastodon web clients now, each with a different focus:

- #Halcyon: Twitter-like
- #Brutaldon: Web 1.0
- #Pinafore: speed, simplicity
- #Sengi: multi-instance

Really happy to see so many different Mastodon web clients out there!
