ummmmm so signal just essentially locked me out until I create a pin???? I can open new messages from their push notification but I can't navigate in the app. I just get the choice to make a pin or learn more, and learn more opens a browser explaining that it's mandatory now? Computer nerds, help. Is signal bad now actually?
these 2 trans biracial folks ik are running low on funds; they're street medics who need to be able to afford groceries, gas, & medical supplies amidst nonstop protesting & the nonstop driving is really draining their gas like nothing else. they do a lot for their community; they've been maced, shot at & almost set on fire but they're still out there trying to help. u can donate here anything helps:
But that's just in the intro! Once the game got going I've been really compelled by the choices it's asking me to make, how subtle they are, and how I don't know necessarily which choices have consequences but any of them might. They all feel like they have weight, to varying degrees. I'm impressed by that
The beginning was a little cringey, but I honestly don't know how else they could have better introduced the backstory than the psuedo-Twine game.
It seemed like I was expected to be moved by the story, but it gave me every reason not to empathize with the PC. I felt kind of resentful at being forced to choose from options limited by his everyday toxic masculinity.
Housing offer, boosts +
Hey Boston, just putting it out there that there are 3 open rooms in my 4-bdrm Dorchester 3rd flr apartment for September. Rent is 730. The bedrooms are nice and big, as is the kitchen, it's very near the red line, and the one roommate who is staying is very chill and nice. Lmk if you have any leads.
PSA: cloth and paper masks worn to help prevent spread of Coronavirus (and other diseases) do not need to form a seal to be effective.
They do two things:
a. capture most of the droplets you exhale/cough/sneeze out
b. slow down (and thus reduce the range of) any droplets not caught
If you have two layers of fabric covering your nose and mouth, you are wearing a fabric mask correctly.
If breath reflects off of them and escapes around the edges, that is just fine -- the bulk of the droplets were caught, and those few that leave around the edges are slowed a ton. Mission accomplished.
Misinformation on this point (most of which seems to be repeating proper fit and donning for PPE masks, which do need to form a seal) is leading people to not wear masks because they believe they are difficult or impossible to wear correctly.

@dankwraith polished simplicity and “worse graphics” made with love (by ppl who are paid well) universally ages better anyway
The James Talib-Dean Encampment in Philadelphia (formerly lakoy nou, formerly camp maroon), a protest lead and organized by unhoused people demanding permanent housing,
is raising money for *toilets and sanitation* to prevent a Hep A outbreak. They've been using port-a-potties but it's becoming insufficient and the city refuses to assist.
Send donations to $Wrevolutionary please!! I have personal ties to an encampment organizer who has passed this along and this is Legit
Why is there a statue of Toph in front of the police station? Toph hated basically all rules
Re: cop, she actually starts out as a vigilante superhero
I'm gonna do a full Korra rewatch anyway tho bc that is the life I am living rn
LoK could have been a really sweet 1-season epilogue rather than a sequel series. Find a way to wedge in the ep about the first avatar and you could have fit in all the good and interesting parts of Korra in one season
As has been said, Korra is a cop. Aang's mission is to bring justice to an unjust world and take down powerful people and deeply entrenched systems of oppression. Korra attempts to stymie changes before they happen and basically takes orders from those in power.
