Thinking about getting a forearm tattoo (probably outside), and need some help deciding between a sword or a dragon. Already leaning toward one but I’m still curious.

Feel free to reply with thoughts if you have them. :)

It sure has, Elon. It sure has. But possibly not in the way you think.

Ate two peanut butter and jam sandwiches for lunch today. Yes, it was crunchy peanut butter and raspberry jam, because I’m not an animal.
Am I doing this adulting thing right?

There's nothing left to say and no gain in repeating the same sentiments about the endless cycle of tragedy, commentary, outrage, complacency, promises, inaction, over and over and over again - from shootings to war to poverty to refugees to pandemic to climate change to every structural issue and crisis.

Instead we need a revolution of values, a deep transformation, beginning with every one of us breaking free of that cycle.

Nothing left to say except that there is nothing left to say.

Thinking of joining an #indieweb webring but I don't like the clutter it adds to the footer of my site, and some of them seem to require that you have their link on your homepage at least. Wonder if I can get away with hiding them in a <details> element.

Good morning. ☕️ Here to confirm that aging sucks, and you should avoid it if at all possible.

One overlooked #mastodon feature I enjoy is knowing that reading a toot or opening an image isn't contributing to some advertising algorithm's dataset on me and my purchasing preferences.

I own a lot of consoles, but in my opinion the PS2 is the greatest home console of all time.

The features like the DVD drive were amazing. But features alone don't make a console.

This baby had an amazing library of games, both in quality and volume. It's worth it for God of War alone. But also: Okami, Kingdom Hearts, Devil May Cry.

IMO, this console doesn't get enough love—perhaps because it sold so well! But truth be told, this is the console I play most often.

Certainly not the biggest bummer of the pandemic, but it is a bummer that every mediocre social outing now comes with a feeling of, “ugh, that wasn’t worth the risk budget.”

Using 2FA phone numbers for targeted advertising. One of the dumbest ways ever for a company to abuse its users’ trust. Take a bow, Twitter. And have a $150 million fine too.

After trying it out in 2018 or 2019, almost 3 months ago I re-joined Mastodon. It was a big deal for me, since I distrust every social network out there.

Despite the apparent similarity to other sites, Mastodon – and the Fediverse in general – is not even in the same league.

In less than 3 months I've found interesting and helpful people, thoughtful debates, sincere posts and general openness. A complete departure from "before".

I'm in my 50s and this is the web I remember from the 1.0 days.

Daily reminder you need to shut up the perfectionist voice inside of you in most situations.

Make good enough first.

Then let that voice lose.

Today's weather brought to you by that guy leaving his job at the Forth Bridge.

CW: religion, politics 

Regardless what faith you choose — or not — to follow, I will always stand by my assertion that religion in all forms has *zero place* in politics. Governing decisions should never be based on any religious will or doctrine.

They should be based solely on our humanity.

Did you know that Apple Photos on iOS and iPadOS can identify plants in images?

I have noticed a large portion of those on #Mastodon happen to be #Linux users and #FOSS advocates in general. Lets see just how many are.

What's your OS?

A government that will not protect children from violence, that will not comfort the sick and guard the healthy in a time of plague, that will not stop the rich from boiling the planet because someone might lose money, is a government not worth a tinker's damn.

Offering “thoughts & prayers” without any sort of actual help is abuse.

It’s designed to make the person saying it feel better without having to do any actual work or spending any time thinking about what actually happened.
