first it was Twitter, but now, even the fediverse is becoming shouting into the void.

i mentioned this trend a few months ago, but it's only worsened since then. my signal-to-noise ratio is getting steadily worse. and i'm still failing to make meaningful connections with people, old or new. maybe i'm following the wrong people. or maybe the medium is simply not up to the task for me.

i don't feel at home here, sorry. gonna take another break. maybe things will be different in a few weeks.

So many websites have become an indistinguishable collection of links, takes, and gifs

If ever you feel like you're a terrible person, remember Thomas Midgely: the man who gave us *not only* leaded gasoline (using tetraethyl lead, which caused widespread lead poisoning in the fabs that produced the gas as well as devastating environmental effects that are still felt to this day), but *also* developed the first chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which he felt would be too inert to do any "real harm". (Tell that to the ozone layer.)

Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go
Ghost cow is so elated
Nothin' to do, nowhere to go
Ghost cow is so elated

Get them to a pasture
Get them to a grange
Hurry hurry hurry, before they find a plain
I can't control my hooves
I can't control my brain, oh no

we're going to destroy our skies. more than they have already been destroyed.

i wonder how many of these people have read a single line of Stanislaw Lem's science fiction? He gets "we fucked ourselves over" right in the way only someone who lived under the Iron Curtain can do.
