I'm now using this new avatar for a while because I'm really happy with the emojo I commissioned from @dzuk, maker of Mutant Standard, a set of emoji you see in many cool places ^^'. I was positively surprised by how much this emoji resembles my face!
Many thanks to zir for putting up with me.
Also, a reminder for you to consider giving artists money if you can afford to! They make really cool and important stuff.
And if you have a sona, consider having emojos of them made by Dzuk!
Math Anxiety Show more
Math is full of elegance and beauty yet we torture our children with doing fractions and all sorts of arithmetic on paper to no end. The human brain is not a pocket calculator. It feels like such a wasted opportunity to show kids what math is about and that there is no need to be terrified of it.

weight loss/commenting on people’s weight Show more
i think it’s very weird that people care about your weight enough to mention it after not seeing you for awhile
i’ve lost about 30 lbs. unhealthily actually. my body developed ibs or something and i dropped tons of weight from stress.
but everyone’s like “you looks so good you lost weight!!!” and like ???? don’t do that lmao
don’t comment on other people’s weight pls. just tell them they look good if you want to comment on a difference in them.
Guys with male privilege: wanna help? Show more
If you, a guy with male privilege and some nerves, want to help your fellow humans that happen to be non-males, TALK THE TALK to the douchey bros who engage in casual sexism.
mobile.co discourse Show more
Just a reminder that the big hype around mobile.co among far-right types isn't just that it openly welcomes them (there have been several sites built for that), but that it can also get their bullshit out to people who AREN'T fascists via federation
Don't let that happen. They're relying on admins and users giving them the benefit of the doubt. Ask your instance mods to defederate and, failing that, mute them
Hey @Gargron have you considered running a feature request/feedback system like https://support.discordapp.com/hc/en-us/community/topics so that the wider community could provide input outside of Github issue requests? I think it’d give average users the chance to provide input and better gauge what requests are popular & why. The Github issue tracker is not currently setup in way where it’s easy to find and express support for feature requests, especially for end users.

lmao, this ironic dialog I made in a Pineapple UI design concept
fediverse meta, blocks Show more
most of my blocklist is broflakes jumping into other people's threads with their shit opinions and microaggression
it's an occupational hazard whenever we post anything remotely serious, and i've hesitated to speak up myself at times because of that
but even when that happens, there's value in letting such people expose themselves, and either deplatforming them from our timelines or broadcasting a signal that their behaviour is unacceptable and they can't get away with it
police violence, swatting Show more
government propaganda on film and tv: SWAT teams are the most elite police units. they have trained for years to be able to strike with surgical precision
reality: woops we shot this random guy who got accidentally swatted a good 15 times in the chest because we gave him ten different contradictory things to do with his arms. we also shot his fucking dog lmao that was just for funsies
Re-watching iamamiwhoami's 'in concert' from 2010, it's amazing to see how far their project has come. Most of these remastered tracks for the In Concert performance are *so good*.
Also I had forgotten the small snippets of tracks that only were released as full songs (as ionnalee) in 2018, Gone and Like Hell.
RCT2 (gaming), negative-ish opinion Show more
After playing the "Prison Island" scenario for probably around 6 hours, I'm feeling disappointed about that goal of making ten 6.0+ excitement rides.
Having no restrictions on park space or money, and no goals other than "go wild, make crazy roller-coasters" makes me lose interest on the game rather quickly.
I'll take this as a learning experience and quit future scenarios that are not providing me some level of enjoyment after an in-game year.
