Holy shit. Someone named Isabel Fall took "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" as a writing prompt and produced one of the most fabulous cyberpunk, post-human, trans-human mindfucks I've read in a long time. This is extremely my shit

We're currently at my parents' place where Lily is creating characters for her cousins in the Roblox game "Royale High"!

fun fact, anyone can talk about magic the gathering by just making up a bunch of bullshit. there's too many,,, no one can prove you're bluffing

the problem with goblin aggro in the current micro extended format is the curving on multicolor commitments and how badly it's countered by tempo in the meta

see? it's impossible to prove whether *i* don't know what im talking about or *you* don't

Current status: waiting an eternity for my ageing Late 2010 15" MacBook Pro to recompile FreeBSD's kernel in the hopes of getting wifi working.

Current status: At the Microsoft Store getting my nearly-four-year-old original-gen Elite controller with the grips-coming-off problem replaced. They don't have any of the original controllers anymore but they said I could pay the $50 difference between the RRP of the original and the new one and get a brand-new Elite 2! 🎉

"I'm a leftist, of course i'm not racist!"

This is whiteness and supremacy kicking back. This is you perpetuating it without realizing it. Because instead of taking the time to step back outside of your self, sitting down, shutting up, and listening to POC when they point out how you are perpetuating harm, you are actively trying to be the "winner" and prove how "good" and "moral" you are.

When you get called on your shit, and your immediate reaction is from a place of "standing up for yourself" or proving the accusatory problem wrong, instead of listening and genuinely aiming to be better and put in the mental and emotional work it takes to change your thinking and behavior, on a literal subconscious fucking level, then your leftism is one that is chained down by the very things you claim to be against.

I think there is a curse within leftist spaces where white people can't possibly see themselves as perpetuating racism, and so when they get called on something, especially when its by a person of color, the reaction is immediately aggressive defensiveness in place of what should be self-reflection.

"You're calling ME racist? I donate to so many charities! I've gone to rallies! I've been calling out people who use the N word for years! Theres not a racist bone in my body!"

capitalists reinventing public services poorly is one of my favorite tropes

I used to doodle jet fighters in my school books in primary school, and here I am again 25 years later! This was 40 minutes in Procreate with the Derwent and HB Pencil brushes.

This is the face of someone who, for the first time in the six years we've had him, saw people on the TV and had to bark at them. (Specifically Tom Allen and Rob Beckett on 8 Out Of 10 Cats). It must have been some specific angle, but I unpaused it and it completely startled him and he jumped back and barked even more!

Which direction does your icon face?

Please boost for highest possible demographic :)

a lot of us on here are some flavor of LGBTQ+. how would you feel if a cis person jumped into your mentions to deny your experience, or made posts dismissing your concerns as trivial? but thats exactly what i see people doing over and over on here to POC. please learn some respect

i'm gonna say this in the gentlest way possible: i think a lot of you need to learn to shut the hell up for a second, especially when a marginalized person is telling you what they think about something. it's exhausting to watch people step on rakes over and over on here especially when it comes to issues of race

Someone tried to connect to my MUD via their browser and because of how character creation works right now, that kind of worked so there's now a player standing in Crossed Candles Inn with the user name "GET / HTTP/1.1"
