white people: steals Black music in various forms for over a century, ruins it, creates an organisation that makes it illegal to copy music without paying massive royalties and says "don't steal from artists".
@djsundog but spelt "crton" and "crtoff"
What's a pirate's favourite letter?
A letter of marque, probably. It was "a government license in the Age of Sail that authorized a private person, known as a privateer or corsair, to attack and capture vessels of a nation at war with the issuer" (Wikipedia). While privateering was legal and piracy was not, in reality the line between a pirate and a privateer was thin at best.
Quidditch in 2009 was this ridiculous sport that "real athletes" didn't take seriously and it was fun and silly and weird
By ~ 2014 it was overrun by dudebros who had made "turning quidditch into a legit sport" one of the official goals of the quidditch association
I kind of want to do this to a legit sport, but in reverse
Get a bunch of non-athletes, nerds, queer people, weirdos, whoever, invade that sport, take it over and start slowly changing rules so that it eventually becomes Calvinball
gaslighting, faith, noodling
a thought I had today about the concept of faith (in yourself, God, others, the world...)
faith is keeping hold of what you have already discovered to be true, even when a lie seems obviously correct.
thus, faith is exactly what gets you through gaslighting.
of course in the long term if you have faith in your abuser, this will work in reverse and keep you gaslighted.
but faith is useful because it's a dampener.

I know languages evolve. But this is a massive change for some, and I have trouble writing "they" for one person.
I'll eventually learn to bow to the inevitable, but can I at least protest politely that it's bad grammar?
Twitter user yukionna413:
I too like to argue with dictionaries
Here's a font to draw #steno keyboards. You can write /PHRUFr and get the keyboard diagram in the picture.
Computer porn, bestiality
Only reference for PIGMAN I can find online:
"A quick note for whoever sent me the software entitled "PIGMAN" about this time - you are very sad anorak and probably very warped."
I made a bot which grabs pictures off Wikipedia, and replaces faces with an animation of Karl Marx looking around the room: https://twitter.com/EveryoneIsKarl?s=09 (possibly nudity at that link)
Why did I do this? I really don't know. I forget. Maybe I was drunk. Who knows?
Anyway, should it live on the fediverse too?
The dreams I plant in someone's mind may bloom as hope for humankind

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
