Can I just say to all you #tooters, thanks for being you. I forget sometimes how the world can be better reading the news, or twitter or facebook. But this place just seems so much more humaahn, nerdy and weird, just like home. Don't ever change.
Rule of Mastodition #128
It's bots all the way down.
An ancient Ferengi legend says that every user is is just a bot create for the First User to talk to. Then those bots created other bots to talk to and on and on. Some believe that in the end there is only one real user in the entire Fediverse, with multiple accounts talking to themself or bots descended from the ones they created talking to each other.

There are no cool people on Mastodon.

Does anyone need a drink? Prices are as usual, but in consideration of the seemingly never ending Rigelian plague ravaging the station, we'll be offering a <gackgh-blegg!> Free-e, I mean... free bowl of Androian Welter Crisps with every alcholholic beverage. They have antimicrobial properties!
And they are guaranteed* perfectly safe to eat...for most carbon-based lifeforms.
* no guarantee implied
So anyways, was watching some old records of @Q's first contact with the Federation (snarl) recently, and he really lost a profit opportunity with that Farpoint Station fiasco.

Someone mentioned the eighth be some parallel universe episodes in Voyager an I'm like "now now, I know voyager" I grabbed my suspenders and everything!
So anyways, I look up some likely episodes (they were cryptic in their clue) and watched some season 2 eps, and you know what? I must have skipped it.
Looked up "non-sequitur". But I missed the whole season it seems. Neat stuff.
I was really hoping Molly would pull up for second, she is surprisingly fearsome.
while all we really want is nap & ball, we must attain mastery of our skills and put them to the antifascist struggle, just as baby Grogu truly has no choice but to seek out a Jedi to complete his training
Like tiny Grogu, we are all just small beings born into a big, scary galaxy. We all have powers/abilities we'd like to use for our own purposes (using the Force to play with a ball) but the existence of fascism deprives us of the freedom to explore our power and potential on our own terms. Even before we know what is happening we are torn between different sides in vast conlict
Season 3 Disco Talk ...
I hope Geogriou's illness isn't just age but some convoluted plot that will give her a reason to
Season 3 Disco Talk ...
I love Discovery, and the new season is mind-blowing and exciting for all the stuff that is happening.
In a way, I feel they are wasting a bit of potential with such a crazy new setting by spending so much time on character development.
But I don't really mean that! Character development is what makes shows great over time!
Although it is a bit soppy even for the Federation (snarl...)

Suspending Federation with Mastodon.Social - Details
This is not an action I take lightly; Mastodon.social is the largest instance in the fediverse that we federate with. I know for a fact this action will affect our user base (it affects me, too!) and for that I apologize.
As the admin of this instance, I refuse to federate with an instance that publicly mocks users for filing reports.
Receipts were started here:

So anyways...Grand Negas Rom is proposing a new plan of providing health care for free to all citizens and a guaranteed basic income for everyone of 5 strips of Latium a month to "fall back on".
I dont get it, just giving money away, what are you going to get? More "artists" and ~creatives~ making things to sell. Sounds like a humahn idea to me.
