gonna log off because meta posts give me too much dopamine for virtually no actual content, but I guess it's a good time for a

name is franklint, early-30s nb from the southeast US

I don't talk about them much but I like to collect old (80s-90s) independent comic books and older sci-fi books. I'm a slow reader but I try to keep an open mind

I collected vintage computers & video game consoles and when i have the time I boot them up

I don't talk about any of those things very much. I want people to feel comfortable. I want people to be their freaky lil self

follow requests are always welcome but if I don't know who you are then you need to PM me a little bit aboput yourself

My name is Andrew and I run 68kmentat.com
I'm interested in and , particularly consoles, computers, 8-bits, and Tandy-Radioshack computers.

I try to learn electronics and programming in my free time, but those projects move very slowly.

I wanna see headlines about Supreme Court justices getting wicked food poisoning and becoming stuck in a public bathroom with a crowd of protesters outside screaming at them

At this point I do not care about “justice” being served in this bullshit country I just want really bad things to randomly happen to the handful of powerful people who have made everyone else suffer

incredibly frustrating also but like. on a meta level it would be hilarious

It would be pretty cosmically funny if Trump just had a heart attack and died like exactly one hour before the feds finally decide to go arrest him

Will Wheaton having the most public and explosive reaction to a ligma joke in the history of the universe that he rage quit the fediverse and wrote national articles about how harassment had gone too far is a defining moment of this platform. And also still hilarious.

I love how every time I talk to Blue Cross customer support, they ask if I want to take the "brief survey" afterwards; I say yes, and then they immediately hang up the call on me. 🤷‍♀️

my first query was “a cat using faceapp to see what it would look like as a dog” and I'm not sure what's going on here but it's certainly compelling

I've put together a survey about the Small Internet (#gopher, #gemini, individual webpages, small community sites) and I would love your input. If you are a small internet user, please spend a few minutes and fill in your thoughts. I'm especially interested in the open response questions. This will help inform an upcoming conference talk I'll be giving at mch2022.org

Also, please boost this on fedi as much as possible and feel free to re-share on other social networks and in other communities. The more responses the better.

Needed milk, bread and meds, went to the store.
Probably two dozen people got close to me
Statistically, 5-8 of them currently have covid
3-5 of those are shedding virus
2 of the 24 were masked
Probability all infectious people were masked? Literally zero.
Life is literally more dangerous for me now than in March 2020

Gallant: puts a banana in the freezer for 15 minutes before eating it

Goofus: forgets banana in freezer, freezes it rock-hard, moves it to fridge, thaws it to a too-soft mush, moves it back to freezer in one last attempt to solidify a vaguely banana shape,,,

did you know one of the core tenets of modern American neo nazis is that they think they are being outnumbered by other races because they arent having enough babies? something to think about

transphobia, us politics, abortion, suicide mentioned 

Gentle reminder that abortion access is DEFINITELY an LGBTQ+ issue. This moment has a lot of cis-het female voices, and it should, but the immediate ramifications are going to hit anyone with a uterus -- lesbian and bi cis women, trans men, nonbinary people.

It's also going to affect all femme people, with and without uteruses. It will change the way they are treated and looked at by others, consciously or subconsciously.

That is part of the point of this judicial regression.

Include the concerns of all trans and nonbinary people in your activism for abortion rights, please. Especially those of pre-transition trans men. This group needs to be vocally and specifically included in calls for activism.

Forcing those guys to go through with pregnancies isn't just cruel, it's going to be an actual suicide trigger for some. Believe me.

They are more at risk from this legislation than the average person is. And they will have exponentially fewer resources, and exponentially fewer people to help them -- as usual.

Boosts appreciated.

hmm yes.. automatic gender control.. fast femboy transform.. numerically controlled oestrogen... isnt digital signal processing great

“I am supposed to be finishing my assignment but instead i organised my bookshelf by colour because of my adhd and executive dysfunction”

sad, weasely excuses, makes you sound like you are sick

“i am posessed by a powerul creative force of nature, and all are powerless to shape its path: the best you may hope for is to get out of its way”

epic, ownership of actions, maybe you’re a vengeful deity?
