This is an absolutely brilliant answer to a post which said "i dont know what an NFT is and im too afraid to ask"

Random memory has me chuckling, so I'll share it.

When I was growing up, we had pet cats. One fine day my youngest sister was in the bathroom cleaning the litter box, for it was her turn. I went in there to get something from a shelf, and asked her in passing "how's it going?"

She looked up at me, scoop in one hand, trash bag in the other, her face a picture of haggard earnestness, and said "ugh, this poop smells like CRAP."

I looked at her, she looked back at me, we both let that statement hang in the air for a moment and compute, and we cracked up laughing together.

20-something years later, this memory still entertains me on a regular basis.

frankly i think cis people should go get their gender markers changed to X en masse so we can just get rid of the field in 5 or 10 years

Every so often I feel it important to revisit these photos I took of a gas pump sign in October of 2007.

One of the listeners of "Modern Technology Watches," the film podcast of which I am half, is known as @sudoneuron. In an inspired bit of "Julie & Julia" type madness, they have committed to watching each of the films we've covered and blogging the results. Two episodes in and I'm already slightly worried for their health. :flan_popcorn:โ€‹

PSA: There's been a few people who've asked me how things do on the fedi.

I remember learning in the BBS/IRC days that lurking a bit is a good way to get a feel of what the prevailing social norms are in an online community.

Additionally, following @feditips is a good thing. They've never steered me wrong.

I have a podcast about the names we choose for ourselves, from handles and informal nicknames to legal name-changes. If you'd like to share your story of how and why you named yourself (however short or elaborate, by text or by voice) please get in touch!

Oh look. The "Freedom Phone" looks like a grift. Aren't you shocked to your core that the American Far Right couldn't pull this off? Maybe in part because they don't actually want to make something to good. The modern American Right rejects the notion of freedom, they're socially authoritarian in nearly all cases.

A "podcast" behind a paywall is not a podcast.

A "podcast" that only one app can receive is not a podcast.

A "podcast" without a public feed that can be freely pulled into any podcast client or RSS reader is not a damn podcast, don't let people get away with calling it that.

the weird self-help people are right that if there's something you want to change about yourself, you can

the only question is what you have to sacrifice

Watching my federated timeline and seeing weird domain names makes me happy

I mean, like,

This is the good internet

The timeline forked at Y2K and we missed out on the timeline when all computers stopped working and everyone realized they were a bad idea to begin with and just left them off.
