Hawaii, Decolonization, Fuck Capitalism 

@tobi @silverspookgames Some of them are open about wanting a return to feudalism

@susannah The best assumption is that if they heard it in Fox it's false

@ItsJenNotGabby Having looked (because I can be geeky like that) , I know that if you DID go via JFK you'd be flying on Delta!

*sigh*

MUST stop studying AWS and start cleaning.

It's a testament to what a wreck our kitchen is that I'd rather learn about VPCs and public/private subnets

Good morning folk and friends from far and near!

Today I wish you a task completed ✨

In the weird dreams department, last night I dreamed that I was in JFK airport looking for my flight to Israel (never been) and realizing that I had only 10 hours to go and hadn't packed, didn't know where my passport was, didn't have by boarding pass ready (noting that I was somehow planeside anyway).

But that's not the weird part.

The weird part is that I ran into @ItsJenNotGabby waiting to catch the same flight. I've never met (and will likely never meet) her and we live 2000 miles apart.

@evilscientistca @CobaltVelvet It's because that's what they grew up with.

One is a hell of a lot easier to work with mathematically but there's no intrinsic ease of use for day to day conversation "It's a gorgeous day! Sunny and 70!" isn't any harder than "It's a gorgeous day! Sunny and 21!!" and "It's about a mile to the shop" isn't any harder than "It's a coupe of kilometers to the shop."

(I prefer metric but I'm an American so I use imperial most times)

instagram trolls, negative comments, not really bothering 

@TQ feeling powerful and feeling good are two different things

instagram trolls, negative comments, not really bothering 

@TQ It's about trying to make themselves feel powerful. If they get a reaction, it means that they have some sort of power.

I mean, I don't emotionally get it either. If I see a pic I don't like, I move on and find one that brings me joy. Life's too short.

People who seriously believe in Trump's "stolen election" conspiracy are one step from throwing their palms up, shouting "Hail victory!" and singing "Trumpland, Trumpland über alles, über alles in der Welt"

When people show you who they are, believe them.

The Trump campaign is requesting a machine recount in Georgia, so he'll be the first Republican presidential candidate to lose the state 3 times since the 1970s.
