    In April 2022, the Heritage Foundation introduced 'Project 2025' with the hope of guiding America toward authoritarianism. Now, with Donald Trump at the top of the Republican ticket, that threat has only grown more dire. But what exactly are the plans of Project 2025, and how can we fight against this right-wing movement? A Q&A with Thomas Zimmer, Professor of 20th-century U.S. and international history at Georgetown University, sheds light on this dangerous project. thinkbigpicture.substack.com/p

    @mastodonmigration I hope, US voters, not just here at Mastodon, or at some other places where I seen many Dem voters, but IRL and across all United States, understand that "vote blue while you still can" (can vote and can vote for blue candidate ever) is not a f**ng hyperbole. Now or never, sadly, means what it says.

    I have now owned a total of four copies of Fallout 4, a decidedly mediocre Fallout game. (Disc, PSPlus Digital, Fakeout $20 version, Hidden $40 GOTY version).

    I'm going to try and get a refund for the $20 version, but their 24/7 Refund Assistant requires a human to get involved and all the humans have gone home for the day, apparently.

    I already owned it digitally on PS4, but since I got it through the free Playstation Plus bundle when I got my PS5, it wasn't eligible for the free PS5 update.

    Fair enough.

    So, I see it in the store for $20. Buy it. But there is no PS5 version available???

    Turns out, you have to buy the $40 GOTY edition to get the PS5 update. And that their store, for some reason, recommends the non-GOTY version on the front page FOR REASONS.

    Last year, when I’d only had this bike for about a month, it randomly spat out one of the disc brake pads while I was riding (making the brake useless and also fucking the hydraulics).
