Howdy folks, in light of the discussions around racism happening in the fediverse, I would like to remind everyone that I am a cis straight white man and if I exhibit or associate with any kind of bigotry, please call me the fuck out! Please yell at me. This isn't sarcasm.

Sorry I haven't been as active on here recently. Just getting used to my job and getting prepped for my wedding! So things have been crazy, but good

My first day of work went really well. I always get so nervous for things and expect them to be difficult, and it always turns out that the people are cool and the work isn't so bad. I don't know why I psych myself out.

if you can get tackled, ziptied, and arrested by agents of the state for protesting the state without their permission, do you *really* have the right to protest? does it make it better or worse, knowing that *they knew* the charges wouldn't stick, and they just wanted to beat you and strip you of your humanity because you spoke out of turn?

News: China, Uyghurs, War on Terror 

Obviously, I think what the Chinese government is doing to the Uyghur people is awful, and this new information confirms a lot of what people knew was happening. But it's interesting that China is using a "War on Terror" as their excuse for genocide. I wonder where they got that idea...

Not to be a massive nerd but I'm really thinking about getting into . I've been really put off by a lot of anime recently but I'm reading through ! and really enjoying it. Does anyone have any suggestions?

TTRPG / D&D 5e 

I am the DM of a 5e game that has been going for close to two years now, but I'm only now getting around to making actual dungeons. They are still pretty basic, but it's fun. I made a ruined tower haunted by a ghost that steals the memories of the PCs, and they have to use mirrors to solve puzzles.

News: Israeli/Palestinian Conflict 

I'm not really sure how some so called progressives don't see Israel as an apartheid state illegally occupying land. Seemingly just to prove they can get away with whatever they want, the Israeli military and cops do shit like this. The Israeli military literally shot this journalist in the head and then disrupted her funeral. Absolutely insane.

Life update 

These last few days have been a whirlwind. Finishing school, moving, getting things set up for my new job. I'm glad I'm finally getting some time to relax.

Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff

We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy

The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan

Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden

We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre

But we have chosen coin

and coin does not sing

News: Analysis 

I know everyone is talking about the supreme court leak and potential overturning of Roe vs Wade, which is of course important, but here is some less glamorous news: a ton of fucking dams may fail soon. It is less politically charged but still important as global warming threatens our increasingly crumbling infrastructure.

Headline: AP analysis finds growing number of poor, high-hazard dams

Customs agent stops me and pulls an apple out of my luggage.

"What is this?" he demands.

"Fruit," I answer innocently. "You must respect it."

He holds it out to a uniformed dog, who growls. Rolling his eyes, he takes out a knife and cuts the fruit open.

Within the fruit is a small, plastic bag.

Within the bag is another, smaller apple.

"Very funny," he spits as he begins cutting into that second apple.

He stops.

A powerful, sweet smell is emanating from everywhere at once.

He looks back at me, but I am no longer there.

Nervously, he cuts into the apple. As this happens, a gigantic steel beam slices through the roof.

He drops the apple in shock, and it splits in half upon hitting the ground. The roof, likewise, is peeled back to reveal me, now a giant holding a big knife.

"How does it feel?" I ask, just as innocently, although my booming voice can no longer convey emotion in a comprehensible manner.

Nervously, he looks down at the apple he dropped. Inside it, there's a small person.

It is him.
