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.

I recently discovered that I somehow missed most of Voyager season 6 on the original run so now I have these wonderful story nuggets that are still new to me. It's exciting. Just watched the one where Seven comes across three other former drones from her old unimatrix.
What series do you wish there were some episodes you missed and could watch new now? Who would be in it?
Oh hey, my 1000th toot! I better make it good. How about a poll? Since CBS loves making new spinoffs so much, why not a DS9 spinoff 20 years later in the same universe at "Picard"? What should it be about? (warning#1: thread of answers could have spoilers for DS9 if you haven't watched it all) (warning#2: these are purposely bad)
I haven't noticed it but from posts I'm seeing, it sounds like there has been another migratory wave from legacy social web services into the #Fediverse.
I wrote a brief resource aimed at those sorts of users, to help them find a footing in how to communicate here.
I hope it's useful or entertaining!
I just came back from watching the "What We left Behind" DS9 documentary at my local cinema. Really fun and enlightening views from the cast, they didn't steer away from the controversies and the problems. But they were all really proud of their show and seem like a real family.
And Armin Shimmerman has some serious lobes even without makeup.
Mental health (starts - swerves towards +)
Counting myself, I know like five people who are having an "I'm the worst" sort of day.
Be kind to yourselves, everyone. We're our worst critics, and we try to punish ourselves too much. Instead of feeling bad about a mistake (which doesn't help anyone), try to resolve to learn from it and do better next time.
I never want to become someone who gets so upset over every critique that people feel they can't be honest with her.
Avengers Endgame Discussion II
Another thing just occurred to me last night. The Prime universe we all know and love is doomed. Back at the time wizards temple when Bruce was trying to get the timestone, she explained that removing a stone from a universe will destabilize it eventually.
That's why in our prime universe Cap' sent all the stones back to their original universes. BUT! Thanos destroyed the stones in the prime universe...they're still gone --> doomed
Avengers Endgame Discussion Placeholder (spoilers obviously)
I saw Endgame.
I liked it, hit all the right points, wasn't too formulaic and I was entertained.
It also had one of my favourite things...other than latnum of course....time travel!
They even wanted to do it right, so they dissed every other time travel movie except Star Trek (Abrams) because ST actually did it right.
But...did Endgame really do it right? Doesn't Cap's trick at the end invalidate it?
I need to work it out.
*reads article about the cast of the next James Bond movie*
*stops reading out of frustration with a throwaway line about an upcoming Romeo and Juliet sequel film in which Rosaline is somehow a Capulet, because the whole point of Rosaline was that she was a safe match for Romeo*
(like if she's a Capulet because she marries Paris, that's fine, but I don't have that kind of confidence in the film industry)
