i abandon mastodon for a few weeks and look what happens. well, lesson learned. i’ll never leave you again ❤️

@maenad i like how it’s kind of ambiguous if kris is a person or a pet.

legal pot has made this statement plausible: “you wanna make bellinis and get fucked up on chocolate tonight?”

had a dream i was watching arthur on pbs, but it had a lot more profanity, sex, and violence. i remember thinking it was weird that they didn’t bleep the curse words on a kids’ show.


@matt this is 100% why we are an ad free house. i will not have our kids listening to or watching ads. i realize it’s much harder to do in this day and age with so much targeted stuff, but that won’t stop me from trying.

similarly, a sexual harasser and sex pest with a fast and loose concept of consent proclaims himself to be the most feminist man.

listening to the burn it down episode of this american life, and this white dude claiming another white dude was absolutely not a racist even though he said some super racist shit and dropped some racial slurs.

aside from the obvious contradiction there, why does any white person have any authority on this subject..? why do they believe that they do?

@selfcare excuse me, but i will continue to inhale my food and digest it with my lungs.

“a sincere request from magic academy faculty: please do not use portals as magical glory holes. aside from the concerns around sexual harassment, it’s basically playing Russian roulette with your genitals. nursing staff have vowed not to regrow any more lost or mangled members until this has been addressed. you have been warned.”

@Cyborgneticz oh my god, they have the sweetest faces too. pitties are the best and i grew up with shepherd mutts. you won’t go wrong with either. i feel like the anticipation makes you really appreciate them more once you finally have them. it’s easier to pause and go, “damn this is really great.”

@Cyborgneticz we waited ages to get our cat and honestly it’s so worth the wait. you have time to plan and think through routines and what you want to do. we got him as a kitten (i wanted a dog initially, but barking was a concern), and it was the best. you are going to just fall in love with your pup when you get them.

@Cyborgneticz ok well that’s the fucking dream right there. i keep telling my husband i’ll get that book money and he can be my trophy spouse. stay at home dog dad - what a life.

@Cyborgneticz y’all need some adorable lizards in your life. or a puppy.

@Cyborgneticz i’m assuming it’s the dander rather than the fur? hairless kitties are so stinkin ugly cute.

@Cyborgneticz doesn’t he have allergies??? i am emotionally invested in y’all getting a cat.

While the wilderness survival skills certainly can’t hurt, it will be empathy, generosity, and courage that we need to survive. Kindness and fairness will be more valuable than any survival skill..We will have to work together. We will have to grow food, educate ourselves, and give people a reason to persevere..Humans evolved attributes such as generosity, altruism, and cooperation because we need them to survive.


@alex @Pixley it 100% is. but sometimes there is some charming ass shit on there. like someone found a lost turtle in their yard, which i thought was kind of silly, like they didn’t understand wildlife (common around here). but then someone responded that they knew the turtle. they had this whole backstory about the turtle’s life. shit was wild.
