@breakfastgolem gonna start an instance called milkshake.duck
@Pepsi@radical.town @evan each type of post is different. on a shitpost, you probably want boosts to know people think it's funny enough to share. on a selfie you just want "fave" validation. on a sincere post you want nothing but engaging replies
The Doctor's sonic screwdriver is just a smartphone (multipurpose device that is loaded with technology) that started with a different device as the base function. I'm also reading a book where he insists on referring to smartphones as "mass-market portable music players". I don't even have the phone app on my homescreen. my "smartphone" is more often a "smart-flashlight", or "smart-camera", or "smart-porno magazine" than a phone at all
Long introduction Show more
So I've been hiding behind behind my Avi as Squidward since day 1 here, but I want to actually introduce myself: I'm Brandon, a mechanical engineer who is obsessed with communism, Carly Rae Jepsen, and a bunch of fiddly hobbies like solving Rubik's cubes. I live in Portland with my incredible wife, 2 cats, and a giant dog. I'm currently going through some gender identity issues but with y'all's help, I'm coming down on enby man 😊 I love you all and want to be more open now
Time stress, exercise, food, complaining Show more
I'm frustrated that I have to work for 40 hours a week, with a further hour and a half per day of commute, just to come home and have to eat food, take my body for an exercise, clean myself, and sleep.
My life is actually great and I have nothing I should complain about, but I sure spend a lot of my time just keeping myself alive

i know it's about hate and not practicality, but if they want to limit "disruptions" in the military, they should ban 18 year old men. fuckin jackasses they are, it must be like herding cats trying to get them to do drills when they're so busy hating everything and everyone

"if you had a button that gave you a ton of money every time you pressed it, but it caused someone to die, then you'd have a pretty good model of how the current economy works"
@pizza it's like pulling out a long string that goes all the way into my brain's esophagus
Still livid that housekeeping, sewing, tailoring, laundry and other essential daily fucking tasks have been so devalued. We all objectively suck at doing them now. Even the people we pay to do it for us are diminished as the skilled workers they are. And we've relegated others doing those tasks for and with you as a deeply economically restrictive thing. This separates those that are good at a task and those that benefit from the task into categories deeply at odds with each other.

@ghendrix you have to take your shoes off when you enter. come up easy to the polished copper counter and your latte's already waiting, turn around from the bar and there's a fireplace with a recessed, cushioned seating area, for lounging.
to your left is the Library Hall, with all my favorite books and your too, and dozens of small reading nook with perfectly comfy sofas offset of each other, each forming the wall of the other, where there's already a glass of water and bronze reading lamp lit
the best part is to the right, a greenhouse with long wooden tables for chatting and sharing meals, and old elm trees growing through gaps in the glass, forming a natural canopy above.
step outside and the roots of a massive, titanic uprooted oak tree have been carved into benches, into tables, each following this trees natural organic logic

racism, labor struggle Show more
i remember a little while ago i saw a news story that said Indian people were smashing up solar panels because they were afraid it would use up the Sun's energy. i dug deeper and found that it was actually a worker action because they hadn't been paid for installing the panels. be extremely skeptical of news from abroad that tries to paint foreign working class people as primitive and not having class consciousness
We will dismantle oppression board by board! We'll saw the foundation of big business in half, even if it takes an eternity!
