Gab, Nazi's, Bigots, "other views" 

It doesn't ever occur to, particularly white cis hetero men, that for someone such as myself, 'debate' or 'hearing other views' has been a part of my life since childhood.

Frankly, debating issues regarding race or sexuality isn't an academic like adventure that happens within this neat little controlled environment.

This has been a near everyday experience w bigots. ++

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

i can't wait to experience being fully immersed in the toilet

I'm still low-key sad that they cancelled Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency

That was a great show

Pulse anniversary, mass shooting 

(Reposting to boost under a CW)


"It's the anniversary of Pulse and it's awfully quiet.

As it always is.

The victims of Pulse were Black/Latinx and often at the intersection of both, including MANY Puerto Ricans. My auntie had to help a friend from her church prepare for a funeral of one of the victims.

#Pulse #orlando #WeRemember :better_pride:​"

Conservatives: “I don’t want to live in a leftist world where I’m forced to be nice or I get punished!”

Me: *full eye contact, slowly tapping a Bible”

I'm a broken record but it really is eerie seeing global geochemical cycles go haywire in exact same way they do during worst mass extinctions in earth history: big negative carbon isotope excursions, falling ocean pH, rapid warming & spreading ocean anoxia. We should prob stop

some cheeky motherfucker who was supposed to fix this sink at work threw a spare toilet flusher handle on to the thing and called it a fucking day

what an absolute unit

look, it's not just me saying it, it's God, in the Bible. Numbers, Appendix C, Verses 5-7:

"And he that shall place the analog audio jack flush with the surface of the device, or slightly projecting, shall find favor with the LORD. But he who shall recess the analog audio jack beneath the surface of the device, or placeth it in a well, he shall be taken from the village and scourged with thorn bushes, and dipped in brine, and be unclean in the sight of the LORD for a year."

today i learned about two guys that had a blunderbuss duel in hot air balloons in 1808 and i am absolutely in love with every detail of this

I'm explaining to my mom what a mech is and she's insisting the Trojan horse was a mech.

Guys I’ve been thinking about for awhile...and I think....capitalism might not be the best economic system.

"Finland is the only EU country where homelessness is falling. Its secret? Giving people homes as soon as they need them – unconditionally"

Who would have guessed

mental health (~)

digit span tests can eat me btw. if God had meant for us to remember and sort small strings of numbers, She would have given us SIMD registers.
