If it's true that methane is a much larger problem than CO2, then we might be able to buy ourselves a lot of time through strict control of methane.

Since methane lasts just around a decade, we would be able to eliminate it in a reasonable time frame, unlike CO2, which is "locked in" for thousands of years already.

That said, I assume this has been well studied. Does anybody know more about this specific topic?

short story rec 

i’ve been crying over this post for a while now. it’s brilliantly told, bittersweet little sci-fi piece about ‚the last contact‘

donation help, boosts very much appreciated 

hey gang. my dearest friend luna is still really in a bad place, and needs money for things like "food" and "being able to live somewhere"

she's a biracial transgirl in a really tough spot. I realize not everyone can donate but please, boost if you can.

People calling Zagreus "Hades" has the same vibe as calling Link "Zelda"

The internet is great until you have an intense interest is something old and obscure. I can Google and get the Wikipedia summary, but good luck finding a book about her (that is in English and not out of print). Same with some of the interesting looking books about the art movement. Good lord I don't want to spend $50-$100 on a book! But it's the kind of subject where those old books are the only way to learn more about it. 😭

PSA about anti-depressants and other meds; mention of suicidal ideation; but don't worry everyone's fine) :boost_ok:​ 

I've been on anti depressants over a decade. I get ECTs to help my depression because of the few meds that work, they don't help as much as necessary.

I have been on countless medications, and my records haven't always transferred, so there's sometimes the risk I'm put on a medication I've already tried and has failed to help.

Let me be clear. If you start feeling WORSE or downright suicidal after changing medications, that's a bad sign and you need to tell your provider immediately. I don't think they'll commit you unless you're a danger to yourself if that's what you're afraid of.

The medication may not help, sometimes it takes a few tries to get one that does, but if it makes things worse that's a sign you need OFF THE MEDICATION IMMEDIATELY.

🚨 Keep your providers in the loop! 🚨

And if you're now worried about this possibility, like I said, I've been on COUNTLESS anti-depressants. There are very few I haven't been on. This past week was the first time I had to drop a medication because it made me feel worse. (The only other notable one is when I had an allergic reaction to a new medication)

I want you to be AWARE of the possibility so you know what to do, but I do not want to scare you.

Take care of yourself.

And if you need a crisis counselor (you don't have to be suicidal)
text HOME to 741741 (US and Canada)
85255 (UK)

that's my "favorite" crisis line, but there are others, especially if you aren't in any of the above countries.

US Politics, Conservative Bullshit 

So Mike Pence said (about liberals) “They want to make rich people poorer, and poor people more comfortable." As if that would be a bad thing... and I suddenly realize, conservatives really think rich people are little red hens. They really think that meritocracy is real and the world is fair and that if you're poor you're just twiddling your thumbs, waiting for a handout. I don't understand being that fucking out of touch.

It's not quite the season anymore, but better late than never! This is a / that I painted back in 2010.

On the browser version of , in the same place you edit your profile, account, etc, there's an option near the bottom called "</> Development". I tried to google it but I can't for the life of me figure out what that's for or how to utilize it. Can anybody me out here??

Eye Contact

A big ol' tree today. Old work in oils. Im having a hard time painting, getting motivated. Hopefully I'll find my creativity again some time soon.

So I had this watercolor journal that I've been using as a , and I really liked it a lot! It took me a while to fill it up, I started it in 2015. Which means that book is at least 5-6 years old. I got a new one, foolishly thinking the quality would be the same and... it is not. :/ Paper is thinner and warps easier. It'll still function okay I just hate how the quality of products decline over time. 😒
