Poverty distorts your brain into thinking you’re worth nothing and any good you may indulge in could plummet you into homelessness by your own hand.

Wealth distorts your brain into thinking you can’t live with *only* 5 billion dollars.

Randomly deciding to try and build a tiny humanoid robot because I thought of a couple of options for building miniature stereo vision.

I will use it as a telepresense rig to ̶w̶a̶n̶d̶e̶r̶ ̶a̶r̶o̶u̶n̶d̶ ̶m̶y̶ ̶h̶o̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶p̶r̶e̶t̶e̶n̶d̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶ ̶s̶m̶o̶l̶ do fine detail work in space-restricted environments.

This one is a shout out to the Old Tide Mill Gardens and the wonderful work that went into protecting a truly special community garden and resource from being turned into houses. More houses that are, at best, over 60% more expensive for local residents than previously.

Gentrification is a cancer on communities and local councils are all but unaccountable to it.

Though it might also be, a proper villainous monologue is not just a display of manic ego reinforcement. It is a weapon. It's purpose is to humble and break your opponents. To deflate and diffuse their illusions of righteousness and power over you. Ideally it is an act of personal domination; not merely making claims but proving them.

As an expat living in Canada, the more I live here, the more I'm convinced I'm actually stuck in some kind of cryptic horror nightmare country that's subtly and slowly eating away at me.

Personal opinion, after reading:
"Today, I aim to get arrested. It is the only real power climate protesters have " from an XR activist that wrote an article for the guardian.

If you keep spreading that sitting in prision is the most effective one can do to counter the climatecrisis, I will make callouts to activly boycott XR.

You keep crossing that line that many have told you to stop.

And you even still build up a database by calling people to hand over their private data to you, incl. if they want to be arrested or not.

STOP IT!

create communities.

decentralize everything.

restore the future, or give yourself over to servitude.

There is no inbetween.

Hmm... A subculture that revolves around constructing an idealized version of one's self that reaches beyond the mundane here and now...

...nope I got nothing it's a total mystery. :blobcatsip:
