wheel/shifter/pedals arrived yesterday and hoooo boy I am still terrified of driving

my knee jerk response was to think maybe I should just return them but I had a similar sense of regret when I swapped to controller, so I think it'll be okay with practice

I'm having a hell of a time figuring out pedal sensitivity but I only flipped the truck once which seems pretty damn good, probably need to get a cheap folding chair or something so I don't keep rolling backwards irl when braking though

A couple hours ago RCMP arrested a larger indigenous instagram account (@skodenne) who is on the ground in Wet'suwet'en, they have been providing many live updates about the current events unfolding. Please follow @nikkilaes, @gidimten_checkpoint @seedingsovereignty for other live updates.

Indigenous instagram user @decolonial.auntie is also seeking artists willing to donate their art to be sold to raise funds for wet'suwet'en.

It is really fucking important to show support right now

gaius is such a fucking incel and every time he does his awful praetorium monologue I want to hit him with a baseball bat

reading ultralight packing lists trying to figure out how on earth people use some of these travel bags for trips of any noticeable length

so far the answer is "don't pack anything or go anywhere the weather is colder than 0C"

I remain deeply unimpressed

I am team lead for this quarter's project at work and I am anxiety given human form

Pissed as hell about the misuse of indigenous imagery in the commercial sports game?

Donate to Sinte Gleska University, a higher education facility run by and for Lakhota values:* a facility actively working to detangle indigenous history from its colonialisation. That's like the exact opposite of what redface does.
