haven’t written one of these yet so here it is

I’m a major/#linguistics minor, nerd, passionate about rights, interested in and , love and and all animals, hobbies include

also I like #420 and

ask me anything about things and I’ll try to help

I am shy so I don’t post a lot of pics or identifying info

sometimes I follow back

if you find a single fucking public official who isn't against war with iran in public you better have something to throw at them

when a group of cop supporters play an mmo and argue over who gets what loot 

bootlicker loot bicker


i thought i was done talking about iran but the UK foreign secretary said the attack was "self-defence" which I absolutely hate that the propaganda is spreading

this was targeted murder, done on impulse after a two day decision predicated on razor thin evidence, followed by another strike less than 24 hours later killing dozens more, and now the president is threatening cultural landmarks as blackmail targets, quite literally aiming the gun at civilians

this is scary, i doubt he knows the situation with Iran enough to even have a reason for it all. this is why i hate this so much, it's senseless
"I use Linux as my operating system," I stated proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. He swiveled around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision. "Actually," he said with a grin, "Linux is just the kernel. You use GNU+Linux!" I don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk: "I use Abyss, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. It's Linux, but not GNU+Linux."

The smile quickly drops from the man's face. His body began convulsing, he foamed at the mouth, and he dropped to the floor with a sickly thud. As he writhed around he screamed, "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!" In a cool fashion, I replied "Abyss uses the LLVM compiler suite, GCC uninvolved."

With a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life was ejected from his body. He lied on the floor, cold and limp. I've womansplained him to death.

Funky Trees 

Turns out that joint was laced with salvia and oregano. They're callin' it Funky Trees.

Excuse me but "Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg won’t talk to the Guardian. So we fed everything he says into an algorithm, built a Zuckerbot, and interviewed it" has got to be the best take.

This is a friendly reminder that when two people on the fediverse have a disagreement, you don't *have* to express your opinion about it in their mentions, use the opportunity to make a loosely-related political point, or join a spiralling public drama about it.

It can be hard to break the habits we formed on platforms where techbros have monetised our negative emotions, divisions, and innate desire to belong. But your activist energy can be better directed, and your mental health will benefit.

Welp, I'm off to a crossroads to tempt mortals into making tricky deals with me in exchange for their souls, anyone want anything?
