scotpol, #GRAReform, *last day*
Today is the last day to respond to the Scottish Government’s request for views on the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill
If you live in Scotland, please think about giving feedback on the proposed legislation, which is a welcome step in the right direction, but fairly watered down compared with the original
I just started my first game this evening, and found it almost impossible to follow what was happening, let alone enjoy the story, because there was far too much description, and I didn’t know how to prioritise what was worth remembering given that I couldn’t actually visualise any of it
You can’t have too many cats!
is ambiguous between two almost opposite meanings (depending on the interpretation of the modal)
‘There is no such thing as too many; it’s not possible to have too many cats’ (epistemic)
‘There is such a thing as too many; you are not allowed to have that many cats or more’ (deontic)
But clearly anyone uttering the sentence with the second interpretation is uttering a falsehood 😉
This place not being algorithm-driven is great because I'm not addicted to it and don't feel compelled to come here and doomscroll for hours and use it as a self-destructive escape from real life
But at the same time it's also incredibly easy to just be like "Mastodon? Oh shit, I haven't been on there in WEEKS!"
and you know what? I'm starting to think that's a feature, not a bug.
I have been known to post #cat pics on the birdsite occasionally
Here are my beautiful fur babies Vanya and Mitty (though I don’t live with them any more)

Neuroclastic has been threatened with a cease-and-desist letter by the Judge Rotenberg Educational Centre in Massachusetts, which routinely uses electroshock torture on residents
They refuse to dignify the letter with a response
✨ For an all-in-one-place version of this thread, with a few bits tidied up as a bonus, I’ve adapted it into a blog post:
I’ve been thinking quite a bit about being in my head a lot vs learning to be in my body more. For a lot of my life, I believed that the main source of my value came from being good at being intellectual & analytical.
I found it much easier to connect mostly on an intellectual level with others, too. I spent a lot of time thinking scenarios through, scripting dialogues, and figuring things out:
