I'm a fox. I don't know entirely what it means, but it's real.

What is postfurry? At the very core, it's a way of approaching what identity means.

Furry has been all about answering the question "what if people can also be animals?"

Postfurry says "okay, we can go even further than that. What if we claim authorial control over every aspect of identity? We're animal-people sure, but that's only a starting point. If the poststructuralists are right and all meaning is negotiable, let's go exploring and write some meanings of our own."

Quote of the year from this dude who is sick of people’s shit

for today's thematic moment, a flock of geese flew south overhead while I was sitting outside chopping apples for cider. 🍂

wikipedia claims (without citation) that old cartoons labeled any and all explosives as "TNT" because that marking could be symbolically recognized by someone who isn't necessarily literate.

i also learned today that dynamite classically comes in "sticks" because that's the form factor for shoving into a borehole. Makes sense.

Alfred Nobel like "okay this nitroglycerin is way too explodey what if I uhhhh mixed it with a bunch of dirt."

I can't stop thinking about how beautiful the footage of Dan Olsen's earth curvature experiment is.

re: conditionally useful mantra 

Conditionally because: sometimes you can't "solve" a thing. Though then I might argue that problems are for solving, unsolvable problems are to be mitigated

Useful because: I've had a problem for quite a while now, and I know the solution. But left to my own devices, I won't actually do that thing. I'd apparently rather wallow in the problem and suffer and ask the universe feel bad for me than... just fucking take care of it already

Not the first time I've done this
won't be the last
It's time to stop and fix

Maybe next time I'll remember this sooner?

conditionally useful mantra 

Problems are for solving, not for having

therapy advice 

One of the primary functions of an intake appointment is you interviewing them for a job.

You have issues x and y; are they the practitioner best suited to addressing that for you? Do you hire them as highly-trained specialist labor?

It's a huge reframing from "you coming to them" in a supplicant position.
