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.

i hope once we are past this people will look at this time period and make the connection that universal healthcare, housing rights, fair wages and fair sick time will also reduce seasonal flu deaths (and all other illnesses etc etc but im especially hoping people make this mental jump)
So Sisko has decided to close all the bars and restaurants to be delivery only. I know a lot of people are stuff in their quarters going crazy, so Rom has rigged up some delivery drones to bring you freshly made cocktails from the bar. Only 20% delivery charge. Don't drink that synthehol stuff from your replicator, I heard it just makes the virus stronger.
I swear to the great gluttnous Guiding Hand Himself, this is my only place of peace on the internet. I keep reading news and Twitter and come away more depressed. But here I feel there is less depravity in some way.
Ok, what the hell, one free glass of Romulan Ale on the house for all.
Speaking of our shifty, green blooded neighbors. How does everyone else feel about their portrayal so far in Picard? I love the deep side stories about the Tal Shiar and the fighting nuns.
Just caught up on Picard and hot damn! This is the most intense Trek ever. But it's also richer and meatier. I love the characterization. I don't think they've gone too far in removing all hope, but they are acknowledging that darkness exists and people can become bitter. Hopefully they also show that people can change.
Also, Elnor is adorable.
I know, always complaining. Don't get me started, I mean, even worse is you're giving these out for free!
Star Trek: Picard S1E1
I haven't heard anyone say this is Star Trek's take on Battlestar Galactica.
So in won't say it either.
But what I will do it rewatch Scott Pilgrim vs The World. I had totally forgotten how in love I was with Alison Pill (a.k.a The Drummer), and now she's a brilliant AI researcher.
Also...his Romulan friend has an Irish accent am I right? Love it. Seems to me like all his friends and her parents know all about it, like their's a secret Data's Army protecting her.
Star Trek: Picard S1E1
Everything's gonna be ok, ya know?
It's gonna be ok.
#Picard is back.
