Gah, finally. Tumblr driving me batty, but it's eventually working if you want to follow my scuba photo blog http://deafferret.tumblr.com I'll take some dive boat pics tomorrow. :)
Wow. Tumblr Android client is AWFUL for 7 photo upload on shitty Internet. No indication of progress or when it gives up. Telegram works GREAT sending photos. Ready to abandon Tumblr if anyone has any suggestions for alternative for posting ~10 photos a day from crappy Internet... Mastodon is poor for multiple photos a day? I LOVE the Tumblr /archive feature for browsing pics from years ago...
Currently binge-listening to this amazing podcast:
If the little angel and devil from your shoulders ever hung out without you and made a podcast, this is probably what it would sound like. Equal parts wholesome and horrific, Mormon and the Meth-head is about one unlikely friendship.
Jessa and Aaron have led two completely different lives. While Aaron was stopping strangers on the streets of Milan to teach them about Joseph Smith, Jessa was teaching dudes...
A mental health metaphor I ripped straight from tumblr
Having a mental health problem or a neurodiversity and trying to function in neutotypical spaces is like trying to peel a potato with a potato.
And then someone will see you struggling to peel this fucking potato and they'll say "Oh, you're just not using the right tools, here's my potato peeler." And they hand you another FUCKIN POTATO.
This metaphor is why I would like to call someone giving you tools that don't work with best intentions "Giving me a potato."
Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
@sungo well I'll be damned. That room WAS rubbagle after all! noice!
Apparently Manuel was also involved in this documentary on Hulu. So apparently now I need to re-up my Hulu to watch it. :)
In 2010, New York City banned quotas on arrests and summonses.
In 2015, a group of 12 minority NYPD officers filed a class-action lawsuit against the NYPD, alleging the illegal and continued use of quotas.
The Hulu Original Documentary: Crime + Punishment
Another excellent podcast series you should listen to. The intro threw me, but I assure you these aren't voice actors.
When there's no justice, there's Manuel Gomez.
This investigative series is based on host Saki Knafo's reporting for The New York Times Magazine as a reporting fellow with Type Investigations.
@gabek I also love his reference to Life of Brian scene as an analogy of community fracturing. But it apparently doesn't occur to him that ALL those people were bonkers.
@gabek Note for our readers: The doc is named Behind the Curve on Netflix.
@gabek ZOMG the last 30 seconds! it ends with the flat earthers disproving their hypothesis. No comment from the documentarians. Credits roll, the back-peddling begins. <3
@gabek lol watching this now and that line totally jumped out at me too! lolz
white supremacy and house hunting
@jannamark O.O oh no!!!
The #1 speed cuber in the state of Nebraska looks like a punk. I must destroy him.
(Yes, I'm joking. His times are amazing and I am super impressed. I am an adult who acts my age.)
