"Do your part" energy conservation plans, like turning lights off when you leave the room, are great for your energy bill, but their job as part of "lowering carbon footprints" is to deflect from the big corporations that actually use the vast majority of the power.
For example, the average US stand-alone home uses ~11,000 kWh per year.
The VERY MOST EFFICIENT roadside LED billboard uses ~61,000 kWh per year. That number rises to ~323,000 kWh at the top end.

At @Arioch1530's urging, I sat down today and wrote a script that takes a #PixelArt image and turns it into a #CrossStitch pattern. It's got a long way to go before it's ready for a 1.0.0 release, but for images with a limited palette, it does the job okay. Check out Stitchify: https://github.com/joyeusenoelle/stitchify
So my mom has been in the hospital, first with an exploding appendix, and now with blood clots in her intestines, bowel and leg.
One of the doctors who talked to mom said that there were some shadows in the xray of her chest and abdomen that would have to get checked out before she could go home.
I have seen this episode, y'all. It is an episode with cancer causing all of the emergent symptoms. I'm kinda freaking out.
The elixir bubbled delicately in a thimble.
"Is this going to be enough to cure the curse?"
"You're only a little cursed; so you don't need much."
"What happens if I drink more than this?"
"You would have no more misfortunes in your life."
"So why not give me extra?"
"I strongly urge against taking more than you need."
"You would actively siphon the good fortune of others."
"I don't see the problem."
"That is also why."
is a myth. Period. It's a lie popularized by capitalists who don't want to have to change their ways.
The problem is not that we have too many people; we as a species produce enough food in a year to feed the entire population several times over. The problem is that corporations would rather throw food away than give it to someone who hasn't paid for it. Food waste (corporate, not personal) is an enormous problem, and "overpopulation" is the myth they use to deflect from it.
what if the idea of “cousins,” but for being trans
like I want better language for communicating to someone, “you and i clearly have something in common, and even if we don’t know exactly what it is, i bet we can still learn a lot from each other about how to handle it”
but without putting any kind of pressure behind the implied “and if at some point you decide you want to stick around this community, we’ll save a seat for you”
because I remember how skittish i was when i was just starting to think about gender stuff, and just the level of *ambient emotional support* and love and acceptance that came with being a New and Questioning Face in a Trans Space was almost enough to scare me away
Fandom proponents are looking to create a social website of our own, but need a few folks doing research in machine learning or distributed systems. If you know of anyone could you pass along their info? Or comment over here:
