politics, "call to action" Show more
i'd like to point out that if someone is calling the masses to action, they're probably not specifically talking about the people who absolutely can't participate.
there are plenty of people out there who CAN answer that call, but DON'T because they have the privilege to stand back and be comfortable, or maybe it just doesn't really occur to them, or even the people that usually do help might not be up to speed on current events

That feel when tea making is muscle memory and your body auto-pilots to brewing when you're not manually controlling it.

Of course, one could pose the question and hope for the best. Deal with any misunderstandings a they come. Perhaps you'll get lucky. And you'll avoid looking like a dweeb.

That feel when asking someone what ought to be an otherwise straightforward question ~isn't~ due to heaps of unspoken cultural assumptions that poison the well.
So, before you can even pose the question you have to unpack all this ~bullshit~ from society at large.
And the cognitive load/effort to do so is just... too draining... so you just... ~don't~.
Still not sure how I feel about being able to go in my backyard, coo/hoot, and get the neighborhood doves to coo/hoot a call-response checkin back.

Right, speaking of Windows software, nomacs is the best image viewer.
Covers my minimum basics for a default image viewer:
- Minimal UI
- UI can be entirely hidden
- press C to crop
- crop is just a draggable rectangle
- crop rotates
- arrow keys to move through images in a folder
- paste from clipboard
- scroll to zoom
There are other nice-to-have features as well~ Frameless mode is sweet.
The Windows software landscape is an endless field of malware/adware/spyware.
If it's not open source and open licensed, et cetera... with the source posted online... I feel like it's a dangerous gamble to install it.
Even software from "reputable" and "professional" companies is sometimes suspect. :/
I was away from Windows for nearly a decade... I'd forgotten it was like this. All the old memories are returning, however. :/
These past few weeks my brain has convinced itself that "wotch" is the correct and best spelling for "watch", and I'm having trouble shaking it's conviction.
