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

My computer, after installing driver updates: please restart your computer
Me: Okay, sounds reasonable, I'll just close out of things in a nice and orderly fashion.
[2 days later] Me: *has barely closed anything at all*

Would you replace your existing internet provider with a community-based ISP, assuming that you'd (at the very least) keep the same speed? If so/not, why?

Microsoft makes (some of) its money selling an OS whose main advantage is the ability to (theoretically) painlessly run third-party software. As such, it lives or dies by the quantity of software available for it, and so MS does everything in its power to encourage developers to write software for it.

This used to mean encouraging a robust dev tool industry, which is why VS et. al were so pricey, but FOSS has mostly killed that.

So now, they're making them as free as possible.

@noelle If we combine the two meanings of bowse, one would become extremely drunk and then use a tackle rig to haul away items. If the King of Koopas has ever used rope in his abduction of the Princess, he is truly a Bowser.

I would have a much higher tolerance for wacky New Age things if they didnโ€™t inevitably end up in scammy, appropriative colonialist/really horribly ableist territory

Iโ€™m down to appreciate some cool rocks and nice scented things and just sit and think about the nature of consciousness but the minute you say some anti-vax shit Iโ€™m out thx

Not spending money is a non-optional part of a general strike. During strikes you can't cross the picket line, and during general strikes the picket line is everywhere

Don't feel bad if there's an unavoidable expense, but just try to avoid consumption as much as possible. If there's anything you're going to need next week, stock up on it now

Yeah, America is bad, no doubt. We do some pretty terrible stuff both foreign and domestic. But some stuff we do is great. This bear cam is great. Love the National Parks Service.

Personality tests only are helpful to cis straight white neurotypical middle class people bc they never question or examine their own mental structures
