I've been using Mastodon for several months now and I've been really happy with where its going. The progression and support of the software and community has been amazing to witness. There are now millions of registered accounts across tens of thousands of instances. I've bumped up to the next tier on Patreon. If you're able to contribute a dollar or two, please do so. Developing, testing, moderating and hosting are not cheap.
Since the military steals half our tax money anyway, why not have them develop an effective, non-lethal weapon designed for police officers and take away their guns? Like a Star Trek stun phaser. Giving guns to cops is basically giving them a license to kill, making them judge, jury and executioners.
1 time stimulus checks aren’t going to help people. People need to continually pay for housing, healthcare, food, etc. We need UBI. Instead, “elected” officials are robbing the country and giving for-profit companies all of our tax money. Bailing out for-profit companies should be flat out illegal. Let them fail and burn. People will buy up their liquidated assets and new players will rise to take their place. Isn’t that how your beloved capitalism is supposed to work?
They weren’t kidding when they said corn #microgreens are really sweet. Oh my god they’re sweet. Like so sweet that you can barely eat them alone.
I recently learned that dandelions are fully edible and have a lot of uses, but we were taught that they’re just weeds. So I did some yardwork yesterday and pulled some out to try and eat their roots. Eating it raw wasn’t too bad, tasted like an unsweetened carrot. Then I cut it up and fried it in a pan with some salt, pepper and olive oil. Not bad but still a bit hard, probably should have sautéed them longer. I think I might experiment putting them in the instant pot for better results.
Corporations are corporations, we should never forget that and we should find a decentralized way to manage git repositories.
