New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Anyone have a nice weather app that lets you choose local weather stations for a more accurate forecast near you?

I was using Weather Underground, WU, but it looks like I no longer have the option to choose stations. 😥

Excuse me but "Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg won’t talk to the Guardian. So we fed everything he says into an algorithm, built a Zuckerbot, and interviewed it" has got to be the best take. theguardian.com/technology/201

Xmas with Depression & Anxiety 

"It's family" the two most presumptuous and loaded words in a sentence.

Blood is thicker than water, but not infallible and automatically forgiven.

Real family is working together, not a magic, movie bond.

Extremely niche electronic item I wish existed: media player in the form factor of an iPod nano, SD card storage, supports .flac, can play videos, and uses a transreflective LCD with front lighting so I can use it sans backlight, and if I do need a light it's not being projected directly into my eyes.

I would go for an e-ink display were I never including videos.

Oh, and some sort of podcast management integration to track episodes listened.

The Mastodon documentation has been rewritten by @trwnh. It now has a search function and a different design as it's now hosted on GitBooks. Take a look!

If after looking you think a topic worth writing about is missing, tell me what it is!

If your Tesla gets stolen it becomes an Edison. I don't make the rules.

Is there research on what makes a word a good insult

6 Underground prove Michael Bay has still got it.

And by "got it," I mean a lack of understanding plot and character development.

Great, the right to repair is affecting the US Military - out of all institutions - so now it seems it now has something in common with Tesla cars owners, farmers driving John Deere tractors, and those who own but can't repair their own Apple products.

so, i run selfcare.tech but rarely talk about why.

it was on the tail of a med incident. a blood vessel burst in my retina & i had a blind spot in one eye that took over a month of recovery (after a panicked trip to the ER).

it burst because of the *stress* i was under, partly from some life stuff, but mostly because of my work situation.

after that, i started gathering resources & sharing them with others. eventually, i made the website so i could share easily & it went from there. #selfcare

It must be weird for McDonald's to see Beyond Meat and other plant -based proteins taking off. After all, they have made it their business to make approximations of food to increase profit margins for years.

Just . . . why

There are literally two letters on the page

"If I put this in a weird spot then I'll be forced to remember where I put it" - Me, about to lose something forever.

Yo! I want to get to know more of you on :pixelfed: @pixelfed
What's your handle?

My and can be found at @sikkdays if you are interested.

The frequent romaine and lettuce recalls are founded on rumors started by the fast food chains like McDonalds.

Discuss the conspiracy among yourselves.

Why does it seem impossible to keep a kitchen clean? This is why so many people pay the ridiculous prices to skip the dishes, isn't it?

Work hard toward success. Not to please your parents, one-up your neighbors, or make the world a better place. Make that $$ and order out.
