A gentle reminder about posting images:

Your fellow mastonauts vary in visual ability, and many rely on screenreaders. Please consider using the captioning function on your images.

Once you've uploaded an image, there's a text bar along the bottom of the thumbnail. Type a brief description in there (or a long one if necessary), so everyone can share. This doesn't count against your character limit.

shitty behavior, but polite 

"FYI for folks who cannot (or will not) get it: polite mansplaining is still mansplaining. Polite racism is still racism. Polite abusive behavior will always still be abusive behavior. Putting a veneer of politeness on it is just a way of trying to make it deniable."

I only learnt we had these nearby recently and today I walk out the front door and feel a cobweb on my arm and look down to see this dude. They're so damned pretty. Lot smaller than I thought! Had to run back inside with him on my arm to grab a phone to take pictures. Couldn't get the proper camera out without both hands.

Did you grow up in the US in the 80s or 90s? Do you remember the old TV test pattern color bars that stations would broadcast when they shut down for the night? Does anyone make a pride-style flag with that pattern? Because I would love a nerdy 80s kid pride flag to fly alongside my traditional queer pride flags.

Cancer, asking for money 

I know everyone is hurting pretty bad right now, but if you have the means to help, my brother's family could use it. He was recently diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin's mantle cell lymphoma. It's very aggressive and has progressed quickly. If you're able to, please donate at the link below. If you're not able to donate, please share with your networks.
