not sure how often "this will be a hilarious story or an extremely upsetting experience" is a thought other ppl have sometimes, I assume, but I have it pretty much continuously. so, this will be a hilarious experience or an upsetting one, and here we go

the thousand richest people on earth hold claim to it

so if you're not in that thousand, yanno, just keep it in mind. I sure as fuck ain't

brutal honesty: I block 'phobes and if they pull their head out of their ass later I don't go looking to forgive

I don't give a shit if you think it's perfomative or "not understanding" your culture's systemic queerphobia. you got your bozo bit flipped. fix your shit.

if the day ever came that multiple people you personally wronged say you've changed, then I'll give a shit.

but 'phobes drop neat little "oh I'm so sorry" blankets that are meant to placate queers all the time

like someone I had to block said about white ppl: they'll all SAY they're not queerphobes.

their actions tell you the truth.

ex-'phobes who demonstrate no outreach, no connection, no understanding beyond a cheap little apology that their mountain of an ego said would get them out of trouble? don't need that shit. lowest common denominator.

(and yes trans is in queer. solidarity over your ego any day.)

locked my account b/c a shitstain harasser admin with money and an agenda is circumventing blocks on the fed.

not gonna claim otherwise; let's at least not lie about why, kids

they're just 4chan in suits

quick heads-up:

* I block fash

* I block people arguing the fash deserve rights

* yes even basic rights, AFAIC they should be very happy humanity allows them to live at only the cost of keeping their race-war-baiting piece of shit "opinions" to themselves

* no I don't care if this rustles your little bro (or bro-ette) marbles downstairs, just block me

* I block shitheads

* I block hypocrites

after playing WD:L for a little while (a few missions, say) do you start imagining what Bagley would say about your RL?

holy fucking fuck

Watch Dogs Legion went way, way horrifying than I was anticipating about AI

(so Bagley taking the piss at the end kinda helped, honestly)

I played a game the other night and immediately respected it slightly more for integrating a Wilhelm scream into an odd scene that ppl were unlikely to see on initial playthroughs

(and, of course, somehow bestie fucked up playing it and did The Exact Fucking Thing in the game that the devs did not expect on first playthrough and broke their logic tree! she wasn't even trying. I keep saying she could file bug reports but she just shrugs, says she'd never have enough time)

USPOL hot take. 

Winner take all states are a form of voter suppression.

Computing resources are so cheap.

We should do more.

it'd be nice if we could get back to a more survivable level of corruption again please

(no responses please)

important information for anyone at protests, #dcprotests, us-pol, boosts+++ 

:boost_ok::boost_ok::boost_ok:

For anyone planning on protesting and especially in DC please please please remember:

  • always have an extra means and multiple routes to get home! Especially if you're relying on public transit or bikeshare.

Transit could be shut with little to no notice, bikeshare or scooters can be locked remotely.

#wmata service hours are currently also reduced

USPol / MH 

For those who like counts, we are now up to 4 mutes for un-CW'd USPol.

This is for my, and most likely other's, MH and enjoyment of the platform - please do this. I had a breakdown in 2017, and the political situation was a large part of that.

As I said before, I'll revisit mutes if/when the dust settles, but please... it's not hard... give me the choice whether or not I see this shit.

USPol, Georgia, early voting 

If you lack transportation to go voting in Atlanta, Georgia (Fulton, Dekalb counties), Plus 1 Vote is partnering with Lyft to get you to the polls. Use code Plus1VoteGA in the Lyft app during early election or on Election Day to help get you to a polling place.

fine print: redeemable for up to a ten dollar charge. you could have to pay the difference if your trip is more than $10. some polling locations and areas may be unavailable.

Uspol 

Did the republicans streisand effect themselves with voter suppression efforts?

US election important info (Miami-Dade county, FL) 

Miami-Dade county is reporting 23% of early ballots are being rejected for supposedly missing signatures.

If your ballot was rejected, go to this link for help, you can get someone at the local Dems to help you or you can do it yourself:

its fucked up that about 2 years after i worked out how to be cool, and after 10-15 years of learning that being cool was cool, it became uncool to be cool

If you were forced by a for profit group to buy a new phone at the same price as your rent

Because of a non-optional system update that messed it up and it *was* working fine

First off that's their property not yours.

Second off, your very wellbeing is compromised because you cant pay rent, living paycheck to paycheck,

Your only two choices were to go into debt or pay a lump sum and instead of your human lodging.

That's techsploitation.
