Fascism, cry for help Show more
Sorry for my absence. I'm fighting fascism right now. Things are serious in Brazil. A black man was murdered, stabbed 12 times while the murderer yelled the name of the fascist candidate. A girl with a t-shirt against the candidate was kidnapped by 3 men, who beat her and draw the Nazi symbol on her with a knife.
We are forming a resistance. However, Brazil needs you. We are afraid. This is a cry for help. Search for news about Brazil and share them of you can, please.

I do wonder how games like #pubg come out with such insane hardware requirements. Like what kind of equipment do the devs have that that game runs smoothly on it? I find it hard to believe that the devs wouldn't be testing their game at the highest quality setting, so wtf?
Glancing at my mastodon feed while reading Walkaway by @doctorow and pondering the parallels.
"All of these companies have the same weakness: apps are not that hard to build. A determined group of #Uber drivers, once organized, could band together and easily program an app (or hire someone to) that would resemble Uber or #Lyft outwardly, but inwardly send the fruits of their labors back to themselves — no middlemen taking a cut or #BottomlessInvestorMaws to feed."
