advanced mastodon etiquette 

(not a subtoot; this is a thing I try to re-announce every so often as a weirder.earth mod)

if you're writing a long public thread to a slow local timeline, you can avoid filling it up with your own toots by making that first toot public, & the rest of them "unlisted."

if you indicate in the first toot that there's more (whether by context, or saying something like "long thread" or "1/?"), people who are interested can still click through to read the whole thing!

I guess I'm just not used to it, I can't blame them for going places like I am. Only 20% wearing masks though.

UK people apparently love the NHS. Need healthcare? There's a dedicated, funded system that will provide for you, be it emergency treatment or long term care.

What if the NHS, but for housing?

Push it. For food, for water?

Doesn't sound so bad eh. Doesn't sound so radical or ridiculous.

Why are people setting off fireworks? Celebrating US independence from *checks notes* this country?
