"Mastodon? I hardly know 'er!"
I should be reading.
I looked, and behold, an ashen reindeer; and he who sat on it had the name Claus; and Krampus was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with capitalism and with expectations and with capitalism and by the roast turkey of the earth.
Just learned today that the LRT system being built in my city is behind schedule. It was supposed to be functional in the spring.
Now they're saying "We'll get back to you in a few months" regarding the operational date.
I like Mastodon a lot.

Christmas is around the corner, and all the different holidays that surround it. So today we have something that has NOTHING to do with that, instead we have the Friday #GamingOnLinux livestream!
- Castlevania: Simon's Destiny (DOOM mod)
- Black Mirror
- Day of Infamy
- Pyre (True Nightwing), part 8
"Tidings" of comfort and joy?
What kind of vaporware crap is this?
"TIL an Icelandic tradition called Jólabókaflóð exists, where books are exchanged as Christmas Eve presents and the rest of the night is spent reading them and eating chocolate"
Heck, even just the daily check-in rewards for gatcha type games can be kinda neat.
Getting back in the habit of running Viridi, and it occurs to me that I kinda like this genre of just check in once and a while to see how it's doing kind of games. Neko Atsume is the same way, you can do a few maintenance things, but the main task is dropping down toys and food and then going off to do something else.
Does anyone else have favourites of this type? Tablets/phones seem well suited to it.

"WORD IS BAD! YOU ARE WORD!"
It doesn't matter what the word is, or what it actually means. What matters is the smear. The sheer emotional reaction.
Which of course is an aspect of propaganda. And some part of the audience won't think about the meaning of the word. They'll just think "Nazi" or "cuck" or "bully" means "bad person" and jump on board too.

The idiots and /pol/ (but I repeat myself) heard "cuck means you're weak" and simplified it further. "Cuck is bad thing to be" with a side order of "cuck is weak man" and we all know there's nothing worse than weak men.
It's nothing more than shit-flinging. "Cuck is bad therefore cuck means person we don't like". It's the same dynamic as when they call "SJW's" bullies or use "Nazi" to describe antifa.

Of course that makes the "patriots" look kinda weak, in a toxic masculinity kinda way. So then it became the weak, ineffective conservative politicians who weren't preventing it or kicking Scary Black Man out of power.
I honestly don't see a lot of people refer to that period when talking about the insult.
But so far it made some sort of sense, if blatantly racist. The next step, from what I've seen, is the weird one.
