So I'm researching the proper procedure for giving my #sewing machine a tune-up and it's come to my attention a lot of people are using WD-40 in their machines.
Let me be clear: WD-40 is NOT an acceptable lubricant for anything more critical than a door hinge!
It is a corrosion barrier. It's meant to prevent rust in things like hinges that are exposed to the weather and the like. It does have some ability to lubricate but it is almost never the oil you're looking for.

the closet, internalized homophobia Show more
there's a lot of (necessary) discussion about how it's dangerous to equate being closeted with being ashamed, but I feel like it's also an issue to equate being out with being at peace and confident. I mean, I've been out as bisexual in some capacity since I was 14, but I didn't really make peace with it until I was like 26. and I still struggle sometimes. self-acceptance is a continual, non-linear process
@crepuscularCanid probably really boring
@Siphonay if it makes you feel better i live with a native-english-speaking adult who has the same trouble with phrases like "quarter to 1" and "ten of five"
(i don't actually remember if "ten of five" means 9:55 or 10:05, but it's not a phrase that i hear often anyway)
