Pinned toot

I'm going to experiment with putting more of my work/research related stuff over on @scisus. If you want to hear me ranting about stan and modeling or talking about pollen movement and tree sex, I'll be over there.

Many of my toots are followers only. If you send me a follow request, I may take awhile to approve it, especially if you don't have a lot of toots yet.

police unions are like nightmare parodies of unions. unaccountable killers organizing to remain unaccountable is not an expression of worker power but a vital weapon that tirelessly disembowels it.

Why I LOVE LOVE LOVE Bandcamp - their articles goes into deep subgenres and niches with links to songs that you can BUY. Seriously the idea that you can buy DRM free stuff instead of renting it by the hour is revolutionary in a late-stage-capitalism (oof depression-sentence right there)

Like this one titled: "Eight Artists Making Music Built on Buchla Synthesizers" with art made from 1980's to now on that specific synth

“There are many Hong Kongers and other smart people writing online who can explain the political context of the protests, the likelihood of intervention, and what this means in a deeper way. I am just a visitor who perhaps thinks too much about fish cakes when being tear gassed.”

"Levels of carbon-14 in the atmosphere rose sharply as a result of nuclear testing and dropped precipitously once the Limited Nuclear Test Ban Treaty was signed in 1963. As a result, cells that were “born” during times of high carbon-14 levels can be precisely dated because subjects living during this period incorporated carbon-14 into the DNA of newly generated cardiomyocytes. The results indicate that, contrary to traditional teaching, cardiomyocytes renew throughout life at a very low rate."

Here’s a wonderful blog post from an ex-Mefite about the meaning of community: middleclasstool.com/blog/2019/

Cavers are my community & the closest thing I have to brothers & sisters.

Wouldn't it be cool if the gov took a giant chunk of my paycheck and used it to make sure I would always have good healthcare, good food, a safe and nice place to live, beautiful public parks and gardens, and a huge library?

I'm going to start getting a paycheck again and it's not a lot but WHAT A GOSHDARN RELIEF
