[Bad Janet voice, sotto voce] ... ya ding dong 😛

If we want to get *really* scifi, maybe these hypothetical carbon capture machines could construct *themselves* out of captured carbon, possibly using some kind of tiny pod containing most of the materials needed to get started as well as the information to construct the entire machine... Maybe these pods could, themselves, be made through carbon capture using the same machines, making them self-replicating without any technical skills needed

But this is all some kind of absurd pipe dream, of course. It's not like self-replicating material-producing carbon capture machines grow on trees

My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.

Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.

Feel free to boost. #trans

it’s a beautiful monument in the valley, and you are a horrible crow

one of the ways i let myself and other people down is when i forget how strong i am. and that was even before now. i'm so much stronger.

but if you forget how strong you are, if you believe you're weak, it keeps you from being your best for yourself and others. you deny yourself access to your own strength.

if you've made it this far you're probably stronger than you think. it's a good possibility to keep your mind open to when you're afraid.

bought peppermint tea because it’s finally autumn in Texas, accidentally picked up some that was labeled as a “dietary supplement” and uh, these instructions are pretty out there:

- steep 10-15 minutes
- squeeze the tea bag
- drink 3-4 cups a day

the way they teach you about "non violent movements" in history class is propaganda designed to make you believe that resistance is an intellectual and performative undertaking

my night right now (macabre, but i’m ok) 

impressed by the strong showing made by awk, guess it’s the next one I learn...

LB: I feel vaguely and surprisingly threatened by how narrow the margin was on this one 😞

The Cis Enby

I’m barely a mouthful for even a juvenile excavator, but I kept my distance anyway.

On my morning walk I came across a pack of hungry excavators feeding on the carcass of a shopping mall. Looks like it should be enough to last them through the winter.

I know garf posts like they're a disgusting gremlin but let's be real... they and bryn are among the hottest, most charming enbies this site has to offer and it is delightful that they're together
