the emptying of the world Show more
I've been thinking about this article in the nyt https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/27/magazine/insect-apocalypse.html all day, it collects together a lot of stories I've seen of environmental collapse, and just the denuding of the world of life, with lots of scary statistics. But I think the saddest part is this:
"The number of Sophie the Giraffe toys sold in France in a single year is nine times the number of all the giraffes that still live in Africa."

anxiety, RHPS, transphobia Show more
tfw you quote a RHPS shoutout without really even thinking and belatedly realize it hasn't aged well at all (like the rest of the movie- formerly progressive, now closer to transphobic slur) and spend a FULL DAY beating yourself up over it

re: Salvation Army Show more
Just in case my little platform as a queer person with a lot of not-queer friends lets me reach any new ears:
You might see a lot of us saying the Salvation Army is bad and you shouldn't donate to them.
We don't mean "they don't do enough" or "they don't use their donations efficiently."
We mean they *hurt* LGBT people. They actively do harm. It's not a matter of whether your donations would be better sent elsewhere. There's a moral imperative not to support. 🌼
Frisk's first Thanksgiving went well enough with relatively few causalities so far. the biggest being one broken ornament out of a set a dear friend got me like ten years ago 😢
he'd never had turkey before so didn't know to get excited while it was cooking, and when I gave him a piece at first he was v uncertain but then I've never heard him scream so loud when he demanded more 😂
every fucking settlement and raider camp is full of corpses and holotapes (and not ancient ones like in previous fallout games but rather recent ones who survived the apocalypse only to die just before you show up) and it's incredibly depressing.
the world of fallout 76 is a funeral and you're there rooting through the corpses pockets and dumping out the flower vases scavenging for fucking aluminium for whatever reason
and then you go to move your base but the storage system is fucked so you can't recall the house (that you spent hours perfecting and decorating) easily so you go to rebuild it using the blueprint (that you hopefully thought to make) only for some reason it costs fucking aluminium to put together stored items from a blueprint and you don't have aluminum so back to square one
and the economy is busted as shit so when I go to just buy bulk adhesive from a robot it's like 200 caps for enough to fix exactly one more item and there is no good way to get caps because each vendor only gets a maximum of 200 even if you buy expensive things from them and every item you sell is only worth like 3 caps anyway and you can't sell all your excess ammo and it weighs too much to hoard so you just leave it all over the world in fucking airline vomit bags
