There's an important point in this because we do need to acknowledge the US is both a leader in space AND the world's largest arms dealer. Companies like Raytheon, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, and SpaceX do exist in the overlap. We would need fundamental social change to change that.

Here's my latest English change:

I split the string.
I splat the string.
I have splut the string.

Aligning split past tenses with swim.

If you want something inspiring, terrifying, gripping, and beautiful to read, I encourage you to check out Ben Fleuterโ€™s Sword Interval.
Itโ€™s absolutely GORGEOUS and just finished so you can read the whole story all the way through!

A while back I signed up for a service and wanted a semi anonymous user name.

1. I needed a string that was easy to remember.
2. This whole thing seems silly.
3. Silly String was used in war to find tripwires.
4. Silly String is a popular product. When searched for they will find this and not me maybe.

So I start using sillystring everywhere as my user name. I tell my ex girl and she starts laughing. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Apparently nobody looks at this like I do. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ

I get why Boosts are internally counted as posts (they... are posts, technically) but why include them in the user-facing "X Posts" count? Seems like a case of 'because Twitter'? #Metadon

Iโ€™m not as active as Iโ€™d like, in part because content from others tends to come in fits and starts and therefore my own does as well.
Is there such a thing as a Mastodon queue (like Tumblr would let you queue posts) to have a more consistent sprinkling of content? Iโ€™d definitely use it and follow people who did as well...
