@sherman omg are u going to be at eccc?? i mean obviously yes from context but, i'm excited to meet you~

wait... do flat earthers also think the sun is flat? or just us

@froregade lol, I like how it looks like you wrote that blue book on the bottom XD

I love watching these Survivor eps because every other interstitial is a close up of crabs... land crabs, ghost crabs, coconut crabs, hermit crabs, these folks do not discriminate

how much chia is too much chia? nobody knows

Somehow managed to eat 1/2 of this bag of chia seeds my mom gave me yesterday. This is definitely not going to have a single negative consequence, I can feel it

Friendships and moving on Show more

an ad I just saw on Reddit... Angora and Pinter finally sold out mastodon.social/media/nio2UVit

All these episodes are from early 2000s but there was just a guy on talking about how the special interest liberal media controls everything and doesn't give a voice to average working class americans who built this country T___T its like when you reread a book and suddenly see all the foreshadowing

@toromino this current show I'm watching is from 2002? 2003ish? they're saying things openly like "I'm not voting for a queer" and stuff like that, so creepy to think that a lot of us grew up hearing shit like this every day...

Rewatching old eps of Survivor while working. It's so blatantly homophobic, I can't believe this used to air on tv.

Plus side: I like watching these very hungry people eat snack food, it's very satisfying.

our apts noise conversion:

1 squirrel on the roof = 5000 foot soldiers

(technically it was a trade of homemade pickled veg for jam his friend's mom made. Tasted it this morning and it was worth it)

My bf was at a work meeting until 1030 last night, then didn't get home until after midnight because he had to go to his friend's club to pick up... homemade jam... this is what life on the edge looks like

@americanbeetles even deep in remote caves, you'll find crab fans and wannabes

@americanbeetles I hate the thin arms. I hate their faces and their bodies and their claws. But when I look at them zoomed in I just kept seeing crab parts :[ I mean they're almost...? decapods...? sort of?

The other danger is that I'm just spiteful and furious all the time, haha. I like Mastodon cuz it's very quiet here compared to other places and it's nice to have the illusion of a small, intimate chat here. It is tempting to share some actual "real" thoughts just to get them off my chest but! would anyone like me if they knew what an angry person I am? Probably not.

So yeah, thank god for comics, where it's okay to tear out the throat of your enemies as long as it takes 4 years to post.
