@knox if you want to find me.
feelgood story for today:
there's a nonprofit group that trains gambian giant pouched rats to detect landmines.
they can sniff out the TNT with the precision of a dog, and they don't weigh enough to set off the mines. their handlers raise and train them from infancy; they've cleared over 13,000 mines in Tanzania, Mozambique, Angola, and Cambodia.
i do not sincere post very often but just so you all know i deeply care about camping and nature. Today is the anniversary of national parks being created 102 years ago. As a show of my appreciation of them id like to share one of my favorite things the parks have provided
this is a link to a live bear cam in Alaska the stream is very calming and relaxing for me to watch and i hope some of you tune in to watch the bears fishing and having a chill one.

Real talk, social media
Also, we need to talk about the way women and other marginalized people are routinely the first ones attacked, the first ones harassed out. We gotta talk about prevention, about building their opinions, needs and wisdom into the structures that power these sites and communities, otherwise, we’re pissing in the wind
Real talk, social media
Livejournal -> Zuckbook -> birdsite -> here. I have hopes too, but let’s not pretend this is a unique migration. Many online communities have hey days and declines. The structure of Mastodon is encouraging, but not necessarily permanently good. Let’s stay vigilant and loving.
