Were you upset by feds invading Portland? Angry that plainclothes pigs in NYC threw a white teenager in an unmarked van? Did you know that NYPD and feds regularly kidnap dozens of Black kids at once and throw them in cages for years? Thread w/ info on so-called “gang” raids:

did you know that mealworms can eat styrofoam? they can break it down via digestive processes, we suspect that bacteria in their simple digestive track are responsible for this. styrofoam doesn't contain any water, but if you give them water as well they will happily eat and break down styrofoam all day every day. This means that instead of waiting 500 years for 30% of our total waste to break down, we could turn it into soil in a matter of days instead.

Styrofoam specifically takes up 30% of our landfill space, and they're filling up fast. Having giant vats of hungry hungry mealworms turning that all back into harmless soil is something we desperately need to get on. And we can't let companies be in charge of it. If you have a community you are a part of, look into mealworm based styrofoam recycling. It's easy enough that it can be a DIY project and simple enough to upscale for use by a whole community if need be.

New content now on my Patreon. I've also gone through my YT channel to be more usable. I'm using my diode.zone account for early-access to videos.

New content is a state-of-play, first log on modifying my mini-lathe and a video of making a new bridge for my favourite glasses out of brass.

I've also lowered the first two membership tier costs.

‪I’ll never work again if I say Black Lives Matter? Huh, turns out I didn’t want to work for you anyway. And furthermore... my company, my rules.

So, remember about a month ago when stuff about the Linux Fox Girl went around? Someone reportedly tracked down Alan Mackey, and got his blessing on giving her a name (Xenia), and accidentally confirmed the character to be trans.

@morganth @anthracite I don't know if stock Android alerts people to access permissions with this granularity when installing. I'm running LineageOS.

So.. which country is cybre.space hosted in right now?

@morganth @anthracite Went to try installing it. But I wasn't comfortable with it asking to manage it's data on my google drive.
