I think we could include football fields in this list too.

personal complaint 

I desperately need people to leave me alone when I want left alone! I can't get things done if everyone is demanding my attention. I am an introvert!

USPOL, Climate 

It's sweltering here in Central ! NWS has issued an Excessive Heat Warning.

It's just going to get worse!

EVERYONE needs to get serious about combatting right now!

I have an idea for the aesthetics of my website. Going with a theme, I'd like to take a picture similar to this and put the text of my within the monitor. Does anyone know of any way in to make it distort slightly so it looks like it's on a screen instead of a flat screen while being simple text and not a picture? I'd like it to feel like visitors are using a

I'm against congress action on the price of . The cost of a barrel of has skyrocketed, so we suffer at the pumps. This is due to the negative externalities of Putin's . Capping prices will just lead to even more deadweight loss.
What we need to do instead is figure out why the demand for gasoline is and do things that make it more elastic. Adding substitute goods and services would be the best place to start IMO.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.


- In order to reduce, there need to be proper infrastructure to compensate for the thing being reduced;
- In order to reuse, things need to be durable and easily maintainable, modularly upgradable and repairable;
- If you go to the recycle step ignoring the first two, you've already lost.

As we see, just "changing consumer habits" doesn't work.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

Wound it be good to support version control in word processing software like libreoffice?

Listening to the Mayor of Noobtown series by Ryan Rimmel. I'm going back through a second time and on the second book. I have decided that all my low level campaigns will feature fecking pumas from now on!

Also drop bears, but I'm not back to that part yet.

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain
