My family has roots in India & Pakistan. My grandfather was a major in the British Indian army & fought the Japanese during WW2 in Burma. He returned with injuries to his face and torso from shrapnel mortar shells dropping on his regiment. He did what he thought was right and what he thought was his duty.

As much as I condemn war & violence, I understand the need to defend against those who threaten us.

I am proud of my grandfather’s sacrifice. He literally stood up for his beliefs. RIP J.I.

This account is my 1st time actively participating in social media. I had a fb account back when it started out & needed a university/college email to register. I quit that addiction after a few years when I realized how much time I was wasting. I recently had a birdsite account but only followed a few organizations like NASA, EFF, ProtonMail and news outlets as a way to stay up-to-date. I never followed individuals and I never posted anything. I'm not on ig or any other social media site. 1/5

I just played my second match of Fortnite ever and won. This game is dumb. 😆

You can learn a lot about a person if you just take the time to inject them with sodium pentathol.

Why are people so insensitive about sharing kids' photos on ?

India should make these a thing of the past, they do not comport with "normalcy."

I complained about bad faith overanalysis and the person in question unfollowed me and decided to whine about how I'm wokescolding them or whatever. Grow up. I'm free to complain about your bad jokes

Right. This might just convince me to turn non vegetarian

i think being angry at purism has given me the strength to sit up and be angry at wordpress which in turn has given me the strength to work on code

Like, I know I'm being manipulated by Baby Yoda, I can *feel* it happening, but I legitimately don't mind. Whoever designed that motherfucker deserves an award for so blatantly coming at all of us like this.
