I guess I should do another . As of right now, I have 1227 tabs open. This is probably a new record, or at least a tie, and that's not really a good thing. Also, according to my log, this is 105 more than 6 days ago, which comes to 17.5/day. That's rather faster than I thought.

I've just been accumulating tabs because I've had really bad migraines and sleep lately so I keep either losing interest in things or giving up due to lack of focus and then leave the tabs open for later.

So I was just reminded of the Knowledge Hoarding Taxonomy (aka NGW, for Nerd-Geek-Wizard) that me and some conlanger friends came up with once.

Archetypically, nerds hoard academic or intellectual knowledge, geeks hoard knowledge of culture and fiction, and wizards hoard knowledge of mysticism, religion, and other esoteric things.

Your likeness to each archetype is rated on a scale of 0 to 6. 0 means you have no interest, and 6 means your thirst for knowledge of that type is unquenchable.

I really despise when people smugly apply middle-school-level grammatical prescriptivism in wildly inappropriate contexts and call things "bad english" that were clearly never meant to be "good english" in the first place

sarcasm, migraines 

Controversial opinion, but: migraines are awful and the world would be a better place if they did not exist

Alright here's my rant about , you asked for it

A pet peeve of mine is people misunderstanding what literal and figurative speech even are

When people complain that "'literally' is used to mean 'figuratively'", they are belying that their theory of communication is overly reductive to the point of being demonstrably false

I need every single non-black person who practices antifascism to read this review of Natasha Lennard’s new book:

@Juju @soft I think a lot would be helped if the CW count didnt count against your total character count, because it absolutely shouldn't #mastodev #FixThisDumbShitEugen

hey this fool is clearly antisemitic and also calling me a slur

tbh i really do miss when technology was superficially bad by accident rather than now where it's deeply morally bad on purpose

here's a hot tip: non binary people can use any pronouns they want. yeah: even those ones.

when somebody writes "don't open this it's bad" or similar in the content warning field, what's your reaction?

full body nudity, no ec 

A most lovely partner of mine requested some pictures of my body before I dressed, and I thank them for it, because these are some good fucken photos.

(also, they commented on how I always do the same positions and angles for photos, which is most certainly true, that's how over three years of experience doing it affects you; but it also makes me wish I had better equipment than my shite phone camera to do these photos.)

i met a good cop once. he quit the force because he realized it was evil and there was nothing he could do to fix it. now he advocates for police abolition.

... wait, sorry that's not a cop at all, let me start over...

Thing that I recommend:

✨ Un-following ✨

Are their jokes just a little off?

Do they make you feel not good? In any way?

Are you angry, or does it trigger your "I need to argue with this person" reflex?

Then maybe:

Is for you

Google workers announced their intention to form a union, under the auspices of CWA Local 1440. The union is called The Alphabet Workers Union (Google maintains the legal and accounting fiction that it is a division of a holding company called "Alphabet").

Speaking of legal fictions, the union is opening membership to "TVCs" - temps, vendors and contractors - employees who have deliberately misclassified so as to avoid paying them benefits or extending normal workplace protections to them.
