puns to the left of me, shitposts to the right, here I am, stuck on the timeline with you

what if instead of fucking around with clocks to avoid changing work schedules, we had normal clocks and the work schedules changed

syscourse, trauma mention 

📻​ I feel like a lot of disordered systems direct a lot of their anger stemming from unprocessed trauma at non-disordered systems, and I also feel like a lot of non-disordered systems forget that disordered systems often get distressed due to their trauma-based multiplicity and that may negatively influence their opinions on other types of systems.

Basically, I think we should just, like... talk to one another, and try to understand each other's experiences?

remember remember the fourth the fifth
the minor fall and the major lift
the gunpowder the treason hallelujah

Petitions on the parliament petition website that are still open and worth a look:

Idea make your legal middle name the eicar test string so any file trying to digitize records about you gets flagged as a virus.

there should be different words for
"i'm sorry" = "i accept responsibility and apologize for hurting you"
versus
"i'm sorry" = "i express sympathy with your difficult situation"

Bad social media gives you an audience: stuff like reach, personality/celebrity, spectacle, anxiety, alienation, competition.

Good social media gives you community: it’s more like voice, agency, discussion, comradery.

I want a community, not an audience.

Fetaverse: a place where you can get a good salad.

The Lord of the Flies isn't about human nature tending towards brutality and dehumanization, it is about how British boy's schools tend towards brutality and dehumanization.

Crying is beautiful. It's not a defeat, it's not a failure, it's not gendered, it's not weakness, it's not anything people love to make it be.

It's a way for your body to materialise your feelings, just like laughing, orgasm, or blushing.

Don't restrain it when your body wants to do it. Allow your body to both relieve itself, and break bullshit societal norms.

Crying is beautiful.

What if we kissed 😘😘

google antitrust filing thread from @fasterthanlime@twitter.com 

RT Lock (with permission):

Ok so, I just read through all 173 pages of the unredacted Google antitrust filing and I have to say that either Google is screwed or society is screwed, we'll find out which.

Unordered list of fun things I learned:

- google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation
- Google had a plan called "Project NERA" to turn the web into a walled garden they called "Not Owned But Operated". A core component of this was the forced logins to the chrome browser you've probably experienced (surprise!)
- Google is willing to do almost everything to prevent people from circumventing their ad exchanges
- This is what AMP is about
- Google habitually insider trades on their ad exchanges in every way you can think of and every way you can't. Too many ways to list here.
- The exchanges are also rigged so that google wins on bids where they aren't the highest bidder.
- A large amount of people inside google are aware of all of this
- If Google ever tells you some change will increase your ad yield, run. In fact anything they tell you is a lie
- Google has worked with Facebook and Microsoft to discourage them from increasing user privacy, lamenting occasions where they prioritized their reputation over their collective business interest

I just got a scam call. As the scammer was starting their spiel, I got ready to use my Customer Service Voice and hit them with

"You've called the Canadian Anti-fraud Center!"

Half a swearword was heard before the call disconnected.
