One of my favorite new technology bits is low-power electronics just using usb for power. I can use a usb charger to power a ton of stuff with only one transformer instead of having a dozen large and awkwardly shaped dc 5v transformers plugged into two full 110v power strips.

politics 

The "two wings of the same bird" thing isn't as good of an analogy as the ratchet theory of US politics. I mean both are evocative, but the ratchet one you can actually watch happen in real time, over and over.

hey how do freedesktop dot org developers get to work? they take d bus. thank you

alright enough people are reacting to my posts about homonationalism with "what's homonationalism" that maybe it's worth describing it a bit more

Tired: My processor is overheating, I should stop running Electron shit.

Wired: My laptop has a fever and it needs to sleep.

programmers think 4 years of CS classes and a lot of stack overflow searching makes them a useful member of society and that just isn't true

Picard minor spoilers 

I finally watched Picard and uhhhh...

I didn't think I could be gayer for Seven of Nine but wow.

selfie, eye contact 

Hey, y'all really liked that random pic earlier; think you could spare some more bloops for a selfie? My brain chemistry and self-esteem could really use a boost today.

Mecha anime but all the mecha are designed with the same energy as wild PC builds: parts that should never have come together in a way that shouldn't work and in a shape that scares god but also it has RGB lights

imagine how much happier we'd all be if advertising were just illegal

Tamarian Communists be like 

The beast at Tanagra.
Chenza at court, the court of silence.
Bezos at the Penthouse.
Bezos, his employees ill.

Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.
Uzani, his army with fists closed.

Bezos when the walls fell.
Shaka when the chains fell!
Temba, his arms wide!

Hello, welcome back to The Alanae Have No Money, "This Time We're Super Fucked" Edition.

So, we've been fucked for months now because some unexpected dental expenses wiped out all our savings. We haven't been able to get back on our feet in any way since then. In fact, it just gets worse. We have medical expenses out the wazoo, and this time we have an electric bill (they're gonna cut it off if we don't pay) and car taxes due by the end of the month and absolutely nothing to pay them with, and somehow we still have to feed ourself, our partner, and our toddler.

If you could contribute anything to help us out, that would be so very very appreciated. Boosts would be great too!

next time someone needs a demonstration of the cut curb effect (e.g. how even the most selfish ablebodied people should want accessibility measures, because what is necessary for a disabled person is often really nice to have if you're ablebodied - for example, a cut curb may be there to make something accessible for people in wheelchairs, but if you're pushing a grocery cart or baby stroller they're also really handy), may i suggest: this meme

Saying that gender is binary is like saying everyone is either Brunette or Blonde.

and when someone tries to point at Red hair you say oh there's only 2% of them in the world, that's a genetic anomaly and can be corrected by hair dye.

and then looking at all these different hair tones and believing theyre still only one of two colours and being certain that isn't just a useful simplification.

people ask me what I want for Christmas and I’m like idk the downfall of capitalism
