RFC Classification of tolerance:

Complete tolerance/Voltairean: You may be a bigot, but you can do your thing and I'll do mine.

Intransitive intolerance/Popperian: I do not tolerate bigotry, but I will tolerate voltaireans.

Intransitive intolerance/Bubbler: I do not tolerate bigotry, nor voltaireans, but I will tolerate popperians.

Transitive intolerance/Purist: I do not tolerate bigotry, nor voltaireans, nor popperians. Bubblers are on notice.

This is an RFC. Let comments flow.

Big Government: If you see something, say something.

Nightvale: If you see something, say nothing and drink to forget.

Overworked, tired mothers of screaming toddlers: If you see something, mind your own business.

Lefties who want to ban/outlaw/"deplatform" language the content of which they disapprove forget the lessons of history; that the same reasoning can, and will, be turned on them.

And yet you keep finding them oiling whips for their own backs, and stropping razors for their own throats.

Wisdom in song lyrics:
(From the theme song to Caravans)

Wish I had the wisdom
To find some simple words to make you see
The things that mean a lot to you
Don't always seem to mean a lot to me

Every activist monomaniac online needs to tattoo this backwards on their forehead.

@maloki Hi at your new home.

Always up for talk about urban gardening. Or agriculture in general.

Really cool educational webcomic:

lawsandsausagescomic.com/comic

It's non-toxic! It comes in five designer colours! You want to enjoy this in your brainspace!

Historically, the difference between the hard left and hard right in terms of information isn't whether or not to censor and burn books; it's just which books to burn.

A propos of not very much: kdenlive seems to be less stable than flowblade, but it's a lot easier to use.

Welp, fresh update:

The State of Washington has declared for reasons yet to be made clear, that the site in question is a dry one.

So I may show up, but I will not sell wine, nor hold tastings.

The same apparently holds true for Autumn War.

When I know more about why this is, I'll pass the word, but for now I'm just shaking my head in blank incomprehension.

For those who want delicious music software: sunvox just hit 1.9.4

For those into the SCA, I will be at Honey War in Olympia (The Barony of Glymm Mere).

Come find me for sheep furs, and honey wines.

Any devs out there interested in a SimBonsai game?

I'm happy to collaborate/contribute. I'm not set up for AndroidDev, but I can contribute music (loops, tunes, or sequences, tracker-based as well), and algorithmic work too.

*whew* the director's happy with the movie sound design elements.

Next up: music.

Fedi:

I have a game concept that should be perfect to go with a lot of music that I have/can compose(d).

It would be a perfect mobile game, non-twitch, very mindfulness/zen-friendly.

If you're at all interested in my madness, and you have any interest in ambience type stuff, drop me a message and I'll lay it out.

I'm not shy about the ideas, either. Go ahead and steal the idea. I just think that it's cool.

(Boost if you're not a coder but you want more zenny stuff on your screens.)

Might be a small shotgun, like a .410 or possibly a 20 gauge.
