I've been using Mastodon since yesterday-ish, thought I'd post an introduction.

I'm a programmer from Boston. My main interests are in my profile but I'll do likewise as I've seen others do. Here's my list. xD

Jealous of people who have friends they can play D&D with.

Word of mouth builds empires, but only might build Bridges.
-me, just now.

I hope someone can help me. I need a hex wrench with a long handle to adjust a rod. I have a small wrench that fits and measures with a caliper to be 0.15 (3/20) inches but it seems that size doesn't exist any where. the nearest size is 3/16. How can I find out the true size of the hex?

People tell you all the time: don't talk to the police. But why not?

Here's one reason you may not be aware of. In most American jurisdictions, once police have you in an interrogation room, they are free to lie to you if they believe it will help them produce a confession.

What kind of lies do they tell? Things like:

* "We have surveillance video of you committing the crime."

* "We have multiple eyewitnesses who saw you committing the crime."

* "We have a confession from the friend who was with you at the time, saying you talked them into helping you commit the crime."

Let's assume you are actually 100% innocent. Even if that's the case -- if you believe that the police have evidence that could convict you anyway, you are going to be under enormous pressure to confess, EVEN THOUGH YOU DID NOT DO IT. Your brain leaps to the thought that, if you're going to be convicted regardless, maybe confessing will at least get you some leniency.

So you confess, and the cops are happy. A confession nearly always leads to a conviction, and they just produced a confession out of thin air.

You just convicted yourself.

Hi @Gargron I'd like to suggest a feature for the official app. Zooming. I find that sometimes the text is too small to read and I'd like to zoom in just to read the small words. Most of the time the font is ok so I didn't want to increase it. ✌️💚🙏

Did anyone see the "image of a that looks like it was built on the surface of a gigantic stump? It's has rings that looks like a tree but there were buildings on it. I can't find it anywhere. I just want to know where it is or if it was a composite.

Fedi is the most strange thing in the world.

On normal social media, you write a message and people just ignore it forever.

Here, you write a message, it stays ignored for 1 or 2 years, and then all of a sudden, for no reason, with no explanation, someone finds it somehow, boosts it, and it gets 200 likes and 120 boosts.

What the fuck.

I'm sure someone will boost this message in 2021 or 2022.

DALL-E Human & Humane 

I find it fascinating what it chooses to focus on.

DALL-E images about equality 

I found the gender equality images interesting. The imagery seems to focus mostly on female. -E

Have you ever wondered about those () videos?

I feel like Navy pilots need to be trained in their own technology.
