If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on https://webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.
When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.
Remember, you can't search by text on Mastodon, except in your own timeline. That's so harassers can't just find people to attack via a simple search.
Therefore it's important to use hashtags so people can find your stuff, assuming you want them to.

During this time of year small businesses like to play the "we're the good guys" card but let us be clear: unless people take collective action against their bosses they will be treated like the individual in this news story.
Fuck bosses. Fuck 'em up, tear them down.

Some pictures I took while flying to Medford this evening. Enjoy!
One of my favorite wordplay things is singularizing things that shouldn't be singular. There're certain words that just inherently refer to a batch of something. Such as "gasoline." You can have volumes and masses of gasoline, but not a number.
What brought this on is I just bought some cheese today. And it's advertised as "32 soft cheeses". Which, to me, feels like it's regularizing a plural.
Hello, yes, I would like three cheeses, please. Thank you.
Hello! My friend and I are starting a podcast called Worldbuilders, Inc., where we take a small idea and build a fictional world around it. And we need suggestions! Think of things like "modern day, where the other sentient species were merfolk" or "what if assassins were celebrities".
If you would like to help us be writing nerds who want to worldbuild for fun, send your ideas to
"email@example.com". No idea too weird!

Shitpost, TED talk meme, cis lexicographic hatred. Show more
Today I will talk about why 'rational skepitcs' hate the word "cis". Cuz in the Star Wars prequels the CIS were the bad guys, and so the word constantly reminds them of the prequels and so they hate it. Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
Pol, surprise socialism Show more
So, had a strange conversation with my student today. They were talking about how a company was pulling some typical corporate B.S. Instead of giving everyone reviews, and based on actual productivity either continuing employment or giving them retraining and productivity courses (and if they've done lots of those and still not improved, getting let go). Instead of that they hired someone to manage them and grade them on a curve.
So, no matter how well the employees do, 10% WILL get axed every quarter, e.g.
I brought up how that's incredibly short-sighted, that they'll burn out their employees, and while they might get an initial period of productivity, once they burn through all their employees they'll get none. Goose and golden egg thing.
Student agreed, and even said that, in their view, every company should be owned by the workers, and get a say in the decisions, how it's run, etc. so BS like this wouldn't happen.
And I was all ... uhm .... yeah, that'd be great, comrade! XD
Nice to see socialists even in my industry! :D
Food stamps, class divide Show more
Just a reminder that food stamps dont subsidize the working poor's "lazy lifestyle". They subsidize the CEO's 4th yacht.
