Pro-tip for how to get around the Facebook news ban in Australia, or any other country for that matter, don’t have a Facebook account.

Amy relayed

People insinuating that Facebook should somehow be a guaranteed provider of critical emergency information for governments around the world have ditched all reasonable expectations of what a single private social media website is about. Facebook is not the Web, boomers. You sound like people who think the Internet Explorer icon is literally The Internet™.

you can't even blame the matrix on 'what if it's a simulation??' becoming the furthest extent of engagement the nerd psyche is capable of with anything that moves an inch left of the morbidly commodified consensus ideologies of late stage capitalism they inhabit by choice, b/c there you have a complex gnostic allegory and an incredibly on-your-face trans metaphor that nerds collectively bullet-timed in favour of 'wow big computer'

Sea shanties are great and all but I prefer songs where a woman sings that's she's about to die out of spite for a man who didn't say hi to her at church or whatever

Something where she dictates how her grave should look, to her friends

"Capitalism is bad luck. It is bad luck to believe that capital can increase itself and that the world will be reborn on an anticipated doomsday. What money magic means is: create your own fortune. Create your own alignments between body and land. Work on the relationships that you have, not the ones you dream for."
Alice Sparkly Kat. Money Magic: Etymologies if Saturn and the Moon. p 94

they touch hands in the airports and on bathroom mirrors.

the math works great for 20% enrichment, reactor grade uranium, but what if you bump it up to 90% enriched weapons grade uranium?

you get an exhaust velocity at 1.5% the speed of light. That puts the nearest star within a reasonable 120 years away.

@Newpa_Hasai at least a nuke is like the ultimate solid-state device and is basically 'safe' on its own

enriched uranium salt water tuned to be constantly be on the edge of prompt critical and basically all this fissile juice has NO FIXED GEOMETRY so any possible leak is hilarious death maybe

As dawn rises for another day, I stare at the rug hung on the wall. it boldly proclaims 2000. That year that seemed so pivotal.(as if a year is an entity that can mean anything. ) My sister wove that rug. But what of the two decades since? The dawns turned to dust. The metal hooks tarnished with rust. It all seems fruitless but can I catch a glimmer of hope for today? #smallstories

You saw courageous Caesar next;
You know what he became.
They deified him in his life
Then had him murdered just the same
