i'm in comcast's dumpster
filling garbage bags with routers.
i flash their firmware
and give them to my neighbours.
the network grows
with everything they throw away.
I've started just leaving any web site that makes me fill in a Google captcha, even if it's a site I needed to log into and use. Tired of it. So what if I'm a robot?

cw: us politics, Tr*mp Show more
I can't help but feel the very fact that so many people who think of themselves as a resistance spend all day every day posting on social media about what Trump does means that he's already won - he shapes the limits of their conversations, their imagination of possible justice is restricted to opposing whatever he happens to tweet on any given day. All day, every day, a chorus of rejecting Trump without anything more. It's domination from the inside out.

Mother Jones: US public #education schools are falling apart. More than half of US schools are substandard, and available funds for school infrastructure investment have plummeted. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2018/01/its-not-just-freezing-classrooms-in-baltimore-americas-schools-are-physically-falling-apart/
Flowers (and not just winter blooming flowers) are blooming year-round here now. There is no winter.
I feel betrayed every time macOS forces a pop-up asking me if I want to install the updates "now or try tonight?"
For most of my Mac using life this was the kind of thing Windows did, and the Mac OS didn't do, and now there is no escaping it.
“Merry Christmas” to our neighbours who have been remodeling their apartment every day for 6 months and decided not to take today off from the endless hammering and banging that shakes our walls.
Lovesick is not a bad show, which I never would have known from the awful way that Netflix tried to market it to me for years before I finally gave in and watched it.
Whatever Apple did with 10.13.2 they fixed something. My older laptop had been buggy forever, now runs like lightening after this update.
Escapist Media of Any Kind as Long as I Don't Have to Think About the News for at Least Two Hours and chill.
Red and green lights make me think of Xmas, it works.
But when they add white, I can't help but think of Italy.
Is this just something I picked up living in NYC, or do other people have this problem?
I forgot how many cats are in Logan's Run.
And where the final scenes take place.
So many cats.
CW: us politics, empire is bad Show more
As a nation the US is rather awful - and it's remarkable to me how often my fellow Americans normalize it. Mainstream liberalism in the US props up a truly evil empire.
Consider: US both arms the whole planet (we're the largest weapons dealer, up every year ), and uses the largest military on Earth to enforce artificial scarcity on that world forcing nations and people to fight for resources and against our "cops of the world" as Phil Ochs called them.
I always wanted a dollhouse in space. Thank you NMS. 🚀
politics: libertarian right-wing Show more
I'm so confused by right-wing libertarians.
The state enforces capitalism, there is no opting out. Forced participation in the capitalist nation state’s economy isn’t liberty. How do they not see that as oppressive in terms of their individualist claims about freedom from an oppressive government?
