Important Correction 

It's a lava lamp when the lava is flowing over open ground.

It's a magma lamp when the magma is contained within the lamp.

It's a volcano lamp during the transition stage.

Oh man oh man oh man oh man -- the Ingenuity Helicopter on #Mars swung over and took a view of the backshell and parachute used to land Perseverance on Mars! It is so cool what we can get up to when we have a little drone accompanying our rovers. #JPL #Mars #Astronomy #Perseverance #Space #Science

New people, welcome to Mastodon and the Fediverse!

Here's how to get started:

1. Find some people to follow over on @FediFollows, and through Trunk (

2. Find out your Mastodon/Fediverse address so you can share it with friends (

3. Invite people to join you on here by telling them to go to and click on "Get Started". It doesn't matter if they join a different server because the servers talk to each other (here's a bit more of an explanation

4. Find out what the Fediverse is (

5. Find out why Mastodon being on so many different servers/instances is a really good thing (

6. If you see anything nasty, you can report it to your friendly server admin (

7. You can (sort of) verify your account if you own a website (

If you have any questions, @ me or DM me!

Used to using Tweetdeck or a similar interface? You can achieve the same effect by selecting "Enable Advanced Web Interface" in your settings, and then pin multiple columns.

Righto, here’s my fedi-tips:

- it’s slower here, less addictive than corp social media. This is a good thing, try and enjoy it.
- you see what you follow. No ads, no obscure reshuffling, no manipulating your emotions. Enjoy that too.
- please consider using CWs. Could it hurt, shock, upset, harm?
- please describe your pictures if you can
- give benefit of the doubt: text easily misleads
- shared something negative? Maybe follow with positive action.
- fash, queerphobes, bigots: fuck off 💚

If all of your emails are high priority ❗️then none of them are.

After two weeks on here all I can say is that Mastodon will never replace the late stage Rage Twitter of the 2020s or even the 2010s, but it certainly feels a little like back in 2009 when Twitter was just a bunch of random folks enjoying Nutella jokes and tweeting Kafka quotes. People here are neither desperately networking nor permanently enraged. They just hang out.
