Capitalism hell Show more
On my 4th hour of weekend work. So far will be getting $0 for it. I might get a full $40 if I stay another 2.5 hours.
It's like playing the slots, but instwad of losing quarters I'm losing my life.

I don't drink alcohol much really. But I think today is a "I need more alcohol" sort of day.
Self-promotion, emergency writing commissions open, boosts welcome Show more
I'm moving to Anchorage to start a new job, but my finances are looking a little short. Between preventative maintenance on my car and securing a few month's rent during training, I'm a bit low on cash. In order to help make up the difference I'm opening myself up for emergency story commissions. Starting this weekend, and going until whenever I feel somewhat comfortable with my finances or I'm dead, whichever comes first, if you want a lewd (or even potentially non-lewd!) short story written, let me know. Things I enjoy writing: microplay, #vore, digestion, disposal, soul stuff, cuties, OCs, and, like a whole bunch of other stuff. Things I'm less comfortable writing: copyrighted characters, overt cruelty.
Prices will be $20 per thousand words, with tips appreciated and donations accepted, but, like, in a way that makes me feel bad and unworthy. I don't wanna be a leech.
You can contact me in DMs. Thank you <3
Thoughts on Opportunity's demise Show more
A lof of people sad about opportunity, and lots of comics about how it wants to come home etc. But keep in mind it lasted 55 times longer than it was designed for. The people who worked on it tried their best, and all told it was a massively successful project.
It was built and designed for exploration, and overperfomed all expectations. If you're going to anthropomorphise this little robot, give it its well-deserved pride for overcoming and accomplishing so much. Give it the pride of someone who lived nearly 4000 years fulfilling their calling.
...and we watched the skies darken.
Ultimately, it was the most intense dust storm in recorded Martian history that brought this epic mission to a close. https://go.nasa.gov/2E9PG3Y

What witch do I have to insult to get turned into a bird? That kinda thing was happening all the time in the olden days.
General negativity. Mental health? Show more
Another day, another 19 hours of stress and fatigue. A 47-hour road trip through the Canadian wilds in a car old enough to drink in the US sounds like a vacation at this point

Radical Centrism cold-take, Douglas Adams Show more
Just realized that Mr. Standish from Douglas Adams' The Long, Dark Teatime of the Soul is a pretty good commentary on radical centrist skeptics. The curator of several almost-but-not-quite impossible things. Things that could be related, people receiving information from unknown or surreal sources, and yet he refuses to connect any dots because "each case must stand separately."
He was likely supposed to be the antithesis of Dirk Gently (who connects arguably far too many dots), but after conversing with people who seem to view full-stops as light-years of space between independent statements, it seems pretty on-the-nose.

Trying to find a decent music player on Linux like:
Program 1: Oooh, you wanted to show /all/ of your music? I just kinda fetched random files.
Program 2: What is alphabetical order?
Program 3: 'Metal' is an album, right? I'm gonna put this with your albums. It's right here next to 'Sabaton', which is also an album. What, you say that's an artist? Noooo, '2009' looks like an artist name to me.
Program 4: Here's all your music in an easily-searchable system. ^w^ .... What's a playlist?
Program 4 (again): Here's all your music that has the word "Beethoven" in it. Oh, you want in order by track number; I can do that! Oh, now you want in order by album name; I can do that! ... What do you mean you want first one then the other?
Program 5: What's music?
