@kyoji @hyperlink a few times friends and I made Cuban Death beds, which involves pouring Grand Marnier into a habanero and letting it steep for approximately ten seconds before transferring to a liqueur glass

It's also a story about the only way to break the deadlock of a low-trust society: solidarity. The solidarity Castellucci's characters find is hard won and brittle, but it is also transformative, literally remaking the planet.

Castellucci shows us how a reboot should be handled: revisiting source material through a modern lens, finding the powerful stories that were elided in the original telling.

there is this constant idea among those raised in unjust societies that complete equality is inherently dehumanizing, because it doesn't let anyone get to be better than others. "no participation prizes." the "best" must constantly be acknowledged.

this is bullshit, and speaks to a dark way of looking at the world. You don't have to be better than others, why would you? you can be your absolute best, and take great pride in that, but why compare yourself to others? liTerally what the fuck do you gain from that, other than a mean-spirited and aggressive outlook on your fellow person?

Let me spell it out for you: You think you deserve acknowledgement for your imaginary "ranking" among others in all things because you've been programmed deeply to always want to climb the ladder of your societies' caste system. Because otherwise, you can't eat, or get medical attention, or ever feel safe.

The solution is NOT to enforce this ranking and demand kudos. It is to make it so that everyone is safe, and so nobody needs to worry about rank anymore. Nobody being "best", because everyone is safe and content, is the true victory.

As a bartender, not only am I at greater risk of death or injury on the job but also contribute more to society than any cop. We could do away with the police any day but social order wouldn't last a week without bars. Please respect the Thin Neon Line standing between you and boredom

Holy shit you guys! The #EU has adopted a standard to measure how repairable something is!

This means the path is now clear to make actual laws requiring companies to make their products repairable.

#breadbook
Kropotkin makes an interesting point about all inventions being the result of collective action in society.

Because of the toils of many men before, society as it is formed. And these conditions provided the environment for the technological advancements.

Because society contributes greatly to the scientists and inventors, why should society not profit from their results directly?

This is even applicable today, especially when talking about patents and copyright.

@byttyrs (possible derailing)

This is why I've always been iffy @ "Gratitude" in self-development articles. From my childhood onwards, grown-ups and people in authority have always told my generation to be "grateful for what you have" and "be glad it isn't worse"

But the moment we wish to make a change for the better, they belittle us or get in our way, telling us not to rock the boat

The "gratitude" that was used to raise me has been toxic and imposed. If I have any "true gratitude" from within, it is for role models and active forces of positive change

We are grateful to the people who are against the powers that wish to instil (read: impose) gratitude on us

Finished Night in the Woods

I rate it 5/5 "Gamings", extremely charming coming of age story, it made me cry and stuff.

Really well written dialog too, Mae's personality is like totally the opposite of my own but I found it easy to empathize with her, and when she couldn't stop herself from saying hurtful things to others it made me *feel* the regret.

It also made me miss having close friends I can hang out with on a daily basis.

"There would be no net economic benefits to increasing copyright terms still further.... Alex Tabarrok proposes a hump shaped Innovation strength curve, in which patents in initially increase Innovation, and then as they get too strong, they begin to reduce innovation. Tabarrok argues that we are on the wrong side of the Innovation curve, and proposes. Variable duration patents say, 3, 8, or 20 years in which the level of scrutiny by the patent examiner is stronger the longer term requested."
