sci-fi fuel: octaazacubane. it's just eight nitrogens arranged in a cube.
nitrogen really does not like to be in single bonds with itself, and this molecule has twelve of those. that means it's wildly, hilariously, heart-stoppingly explosive. however, the cubic structure makes it metastable - prevents it from falling apart instantly - and so this substance is theorized to be kinetically stable. it would be extremely useful as a powerful primary explosive if anyone could find a synthesis route.

Woo! Buildahscript hit MVP, which means I think it's good enough to start dogfooding on.

It's basically a scripting language (Python) to build your containers, instead of static Dockerfiles.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! paypal.com/paypalme2/graham762

A friend of mine is currently in an emergency situation. She had her teeth knocked out and her jaw shattered, and she has tumors in her mouth because she can't afford the surgery. The infections are so bad that her immune system is shot. She has expressed desires to kill herself because the pain is so bad, and I fear that something bad may happen if she can't get the surgeries.

imo it's always good to remember that the idea that "trans" is a different category than "gay", and the related idea sexuality is neatly separable from gender, is such a new idea that there are people alive today who grew up with the idea that "homosexual" is a third gender category that encompasses every transgressive sex/gender identity

i dunno who needs to hear it, but don't settle for someone that likes you *in spite of* what makes you different. find that person that encourages you to be the fuckinest weirdo possible.

your relationships should make you feel free, not stifled.

I have this emerging model of an alternative social computing metaphor, or goal, in my head. It’s still very tentative and prototype-like, but I thought I’d get it out here while I’m still turning it around in my head

TRANS MEN: TESTOSTERONE IS NOT BIRTH CONTROL.
I'm seeing an alarming number of boys and young men entering our online spaces scared and confused because they might be pregnant. Due to testosterone stopping their menstrual cycle, they believed it was impossible for them to get pregnant — thus they were not as cautious and safe as they otherwise would have been while with their partner.

**If you have not had a hysterectomy, you can potentially get pregnant while on testosterone.**

There are trans men several years on T who will report abruptly having their cycle again after not having one for 1-3 years. It's possible. Improbable, but possible.

You need to continue practicing safe sex even while on T.
