Pinned toot

this is the most succinct response I've ever seen to the comment "but Android is Linux!!"

@dubsteppenwolf
No jorts are a pants,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the jeans,
A part of the main.
If a leg be washed away by the sea,
The fedi is the less.
Each jean's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in jortkind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the jorts tolls,
It tolls for thee.

I see a lot of people talking about how Mastodon "Feels like the Internet I remember from 20 years ago."

That's no accident. That's Federation. That's UseNet, IRC, Email, Message Boards, etc. What do they all have in common?

Federation: Users congregating around watering holes of common interest, but still being a part of a larger whole.

THIS IS HOW THE INTERNET WAS DESIGNED TO BE. And I am HERE for it.

paying the ultimate price for my hubris, i.e. logging off.

It's called cyber Mondays cuz in the 90s we would all log into chat rooms and cyber one another all day

When people travel to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small.

Few people think that they can radically change the future by doing something small in the present.

This is the only real time travel paradox.

"What if the pope was a cube? What if birds could wear hats? How might hammer-pants spell the end of racism?, etc." i mutter to myself as I put "Sci-Fi Author" on my CV.

Mastodon is crumbling and some blame these delicious recipes

A liberal-conservative atheist white cishet colonialist cop professor and marketing specialist was teaching a class on Carl Sagan, known materialist. "Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship svabhava and accept that material science is the most highly-evolved ideology the world has ever known, even greater than Madhyamaka!"

At this moment, a brave, queer, anti-foundationalist furry mystic Buddhist who had survived 1500 instance metas and understood the necessity of making 10,000-character posts stood up and held up a copy of Nagarjuna's Mūlamadhyamakakārikā. "Does this book exist in an essential sense, samsara-dweller?"

The arrogant, probably shentongpa professor smirked quite essentially and smugly replied "Of course it exists, it's made out of matter, you incoherent nihilist."
"Wrong. If it existed materially, how come I like it?"
