PSA: generic albuterol inhalers now available in US Show more
GSK has made an agreement with Prasco to allow for the generic manufacture of its Ventolin HFA (to be marketed as Albuterol Sulfate HFA). The generic inhaler *should* be available for no more than $36 without insurance.
ProTip: don't make the same mistake I did, and if you have Rx insurance (including Medicare), and your pharmacy offers the generic, make sure your copays are less than the cash-pay price.
Trans Internet Security Risk Show more
Big scary security side eye at the new Trans Browser Extension "Shinigami Eyes" which encourages trans people to tag pages as "trans friendly" and "anti trans".
Have already seen trans friends on social media have their pages on like facebook etc tagged. This can be done by anyone. It turns text links green or red respectively. So basically we're outting each other? Surely a huge dataset of trans people is incredibly stupid and dangerous?
"A woman read 20,000 Yelp reviews as part of her master’s studies. Her finding? Reviewers’ obsession with "authenticity" is white supremacy in action "
I made a terrible game where you have to guess which bad domain name is more expensive: https://domain-pricing.glitch.me/
for anyone who doesn't know about this, chick-fil-a donates a lot of money to openly anti-gay organizations- about a million dollars within the past year. so like yeah... maybe don't eat there.
i know there's "no ethical consumption under capitalism" (which is something else someone tried to tell me re: chick-fil-a), but like, there are plenty of other fast food restaurants you can eat at instead. i have a very hard time believing that not going there will inconvenience anyone
isn't it cool that once we started using a decentralized structure for our social media consumption we also started thinking about fun and creative TLDs. it's almost like the shitty neo-memphis group web design paradigm with boring cutesy names like Slack and Tumblr is a way to ornament the corporate takeover of the web and turn it into a flat barren moneyscape.
reclaim website, is what i'm saying, because it's fun
