Plastic in the ocean misconception, environment
Firm reminder that about half of the plastic in the ocean is made of fishing nets.
Also, because I'm incensed:
Plastic straw bans aren't just pointless, they serve to divert the blame from the corporations wrecking the environment onto the regular populace.
What does it say about me when I have all of these monologues? https://xkcd.com/2057/
-everything, literally everything, is covered in acid, all the time. if you go outside, and i dont recommend going outside, but if you do, you MUST wear rubber soled shoes or else the acid will getcha
-kangaroos will steal your car, do not give them ur keys EVER
-crocodile dundee is real and he's eight feet tall and if you ever say "ive got a knife" he shows up and defeats you in single combat
-magpies are a psyop
thanks for coming to my ted talk
meta, social media-
Mastodon is not going to solve the problems with social media. Federation and openness etc are all great, but these are tools at best and implementation details at worst. People is where stuff is going wrong.
I love social media. It literally saved my life. But it feels broken right now and I think maybe I should just take an extensive break.
mildly nsfw, Paleolithic nudes compared to modern nudes
This is so, so amazing. Evidence that #Paleolithic #Venus statues were basically carved by women as self-portraits. #womensart Source: http://gowns.tumblr.com/post/167128831158/evidence-that-ancient-paleolithic-venus-statues
Jurassic Park is supes progressive from the dino perspective
- "so concerned with whether you can, not with whether you should" uhm hello silicon valley is that u
- dinos forced to work for the profit of the few rise up and literally eat the rich
- dennis embodies capitalist desire to get rich quick at the expense of everyone; gets what he deserves
- don't assume that dino's gender, bruh! even if you bred it to be female. maybe try getting to know that dino first before assuming
a website wouldn't let me change the gender marker on my account. every other field was updatable: title, first and last name, and suffix. gender appeared as a form field, but with no dropdown
I fixed this this by removing the 'editNone' CSS class, updating the field to the correct value, and submitting the form.
Seems like it would be useful if you could send stuff both directions simultaneously. The only thing coming close that I’ve found is the “loop” design, where you have a rotating loop instead of a ribbon. Basically a space paternoster. I don’t see how you’d run that at a useful speed and still be able to “jump on”.
