#introductions I'm on a new instance so I might do this again
I am a hot young dysfunctional sadboi who likes weird synth punk and catboys and the obliteration of every last soul/life destroying aspect of this hellish global order
Follow me for shit puns, takes and occasional sadposting
Political but not any current politics (+)
Something to keep in mind is that a culture of obedience is one that breeds authoritarianism
Encourage challenging of power, normalize questioning decisions of bosses and leaders, boost voices that are unheard and defend one another
Parents: do not normalize blind obedience! Encourage your children to stand up for their ideas and see equity instead accepting tyranny
Today I'm feeling this is very crucial
twitter user discusses abuse suffered after bad-jacketing by contrapoints https://web.archive.org/web/20200106022930/https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1213472505677189121.html
i literally cannot understand anyone who continues to support, defend, or give benefit of doubt to this vindictive, petty, awful human being.
no service she provides to leftist communities can possibly be worth the cost of this toxic behavior.
people were talking about the millennium bug recently, well it turns out a lot of the fixes just delayed the problem to 2020
"Programmers wanting to avoid the Y2K bug had two broad options: entirely rewrite their code, or adopt a quick fix called “windowing”, which would treat all dates from 00 to 20, as from the 2000s, rather than the 1900s. An estimated 80 per cent of computers fixed in 1999 used the quicker, cheaper option."
"Those systems that used the quick fix have now reached the end of that window, and have rolled back to 1920. Utility company bills have reportedly been produced with the erroneous date 1920, while tens of thousands of parking meters in New York City have declined credit card transactions because of the date glitch."
Sad to report that the composer Ruth Anderson has died. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/18/arts/music/ruth-anderson-dead.html
She was one of the first women in the US into #electroacoustic music. Her piece "State of The Union Message" is a queer cut up, made in 1974. https://open.spotify.com/track/00hL5iUa7nSKGaC6AAaGEc?si=_D9UTF-STGuAOepeHR2uJw
