    @iMike agreed. Biking in the snow is so much nicer than biking in the rain, as well, presuming the roads aren’t slick.

    It’s snowing, and he’s hiding next to me, because snow is scary I guess?
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    You ever have a cat bless you with their presence and you can just tell they don’t have a single solitary thought in their extremely adorable head?

    Part of me really wants to play the Callisto Protocol.

    But the rest of me thinks that the combat looks terribly tedious and I just had really good times playing Scorn and Moons of Madness recently and am hoping to have a similar experience.

    @mogwai_poet I never thought of it this way before but you are 100% right.

    It's like how the Xenomorph you can barely see in Alien is scarier than the Xenomorphs you constantly see in later movies (despite Aliens being a better movie)

    Whose Tweets? Our Streets—A new poster and zine for an offline media offensive

    crimethinc.com/wheatpaste2022

    Elon Musk is systematically suppressing the voices of those who oppose fascism while welcoming the most notorious Nazis back onto Twitter. In response, we invite you to make the streets of your community speak out with a new poster about capitalists like Elon Musk and Donald Trump. If there’s one medium that billionaires will never control, it’s wheatpaste.

    In addition, in case you prefer to paste up posters the old-fashioned DIY way rather than just buying wallpaper paste or spray adhesive, we have made a zine version of our Field Guide to Wheatpasting. Please print these out and distribute them to anyone who might be interested in communicating on a platform that isn’t run by a pro-fascist billionaire!

    They Don’t Give a Fuck About You

For every billionaire, millions go hungry. That’s what creates billionaires: the concentration of wealth in a few hands. When you hear about a billionaire running for president or a billionaire buying Twitter as you pass homeless encampments on the way to your second job, make no mistake—it’s all connected.

They’ll tell you anything to make you believe that your problems are your own fault, to pit you against each other, to get you to work a double shift so you can make more money for them. But however hard you work, they take home more than you do. That’s the nature of capitalism.

They tell us they want to preserve free speech, that they offer us “opportunities,” that they’re here to protect us. Then they buy up the ways we communicate, fix the algorithms, determine what we see and hear. They sponsor fascists who attack anyone who criticizes them, spread lies to foment ethnic and religious strife. They want money to be the only thing that has value so we can’t dream of anything else.

We deserve a world in which people are respected for what they share, not what they take for themselves. The real problem is the system that creates these inequalities in the first place. Rather than competing to be the ones who exploit and oppress, let’s abolish the means by which they do.

    You should be able to turn off Apple’s fall detection for specific types of workouts.

    For instance, I kept getting false positives during a boxing workout (where the watch is under wraps and a glove so extra hard to reach, yet impacts are sudden and intense and frequent), so basically never want it on then, but it would be very nice to have it on during cycling workouts where impacts should hopefully be nonexistent,

    Economics rules because it's an entire discipline basically just dedicated to not admitting that seeking profits at all costs will result in societal collapse. Like it's literally your job to just go around saying "the thing that is self-evidently bad? it's actually good as hell, to me". Then you go home and read your copy of The Luxury Report and do it all again the next day. You have to respect the grift

    I also hope this means I can feed him smaller portions more frequently instead of just once a day, to hopefully stop him gorging and puking all the friggin' time.

    “Elon Musk should pay taxes” now considered by Twitter T&S to be hate speech.

    This Apple v Twitter thing is just so illustrative of the right. They don’t want to create their own nice spaces, they want to go to spaces where other people are having a nice time, take a shit on the floor, and then complain when they get kicked out of the party.

    Ok, mastodon.social was too crowded and unspecific, and had weird overloading problems (unable to authenticate to API, posts never auto deleting), so, here is my THIRD mastodon account (RIP, cybre.space).
