"badly explain your fursona"

um... look, the *accurate* explanation is "post-ego-collapse refugee dinosaur from an alternate dimension, who used to be a Martian paleontologist," so

asking for clothing recommendation (swears) :boost_requested:​ 

hey, so, with the advent of hot weather, I, a mostly-female-bodied person, would like to take advantage of my usually-assumed-female status to wear some fucking SKIRTS, which let me go out in public with sufficient airflow around my legs that I don't constantly want to die. on the downside, I need pretty big skirts, which can be <st>hard</st> EXTREMELY CHALLENGING to find. like, preferably elastic waist 44-46 inches or therabouts. plus I'd prefer ones that come down to my calves, if not ankles, which means at least 30" long. oh and POCKETS WOULD BE NICE. and just plain solid dark colors, rather than ~*~flowers~*~ and shit. any suggestions for that kind of thing that I can get from, like, online, that costs less than, like, I don't know, $40 each? :|

hypothetical wild animal predation 

a flicker and a squirrel were both foraging around in the grass under my office window, getting gradually closer together, until the squirrel suddenly ran directly at the flicker. the bird just--flew away like two feet, and they proceeded to go back to their foraging, moving farther away again. I wonder what that was about. I know squirrels can opportunistically attack (and eat) fledglings, but a flicker is a pretty big bird--about the size of a pigeon--and they're fast and ornery (from my own experience, heh, ouch). what triggered the squirrel to run at the bird? opportunistically testing for weakness? misplaced territorial aggression? competition for food? I want to say that it seems like a waste of energy on the squirrel's part, but I'm pretty sure I have now expended about one hundred times as much energy speculating about it by now. XD

heard the crow "asshole alert" going off, and looked out the window in time to see a coyote trotting across the grass, ears half-back, flanked and screamed at by crows. I haven't seen a coyote since winter! probably will see more of them soon... they've likely got growing pups in the den and need to do a lot more foraging for food. 💚

acnh nonse: RESIDENT ELIMINATION ROUND 4 

the HORSE-STILE TAKEOVER (heh, shut up) is coming down to the wire! Clay is out, Savannah is in, and while I'm deciding on the next horse to invite (Clyde, Victoria, Annalise, or Buck) it's also time to decide which resident islander is going to be getting the hoof! (also hey, if you want Clay let me know!)

acnh nonse: anybody want a hamster? 

with a three-way split between Nana, Clay, and Lucy, I rolled a d6, and came down with Clay's unlucky number. he's a lazy brown hamster with an orange facemask. if you want to adopt him let me know and we'll set it up, he'll be packing up tomorrow and in limbo after that.

also I'm going to start making these public so I will hopefully get more responses. :P and add the hashtag too, what the heck.

LA police commission meeting: live on YouTube, thread with selective highlights 

live on YouTube, it's going on four hours--I'm not listening, but it's here if you want to: youtube.com/watch?v=oz0CKlGj3u

instead I've read some of the highlights in this thread, and it's *powerful*, important stuff, *excellent* speaking of truth to power: mastodon.technology/@twitter/1

King County Prosecuting Attorney Dan Satterberg: (206) 477-1200

King County Executive Dow Constantine: (206) 263-9600 (unable to verify this number, when called it says to leave a message for "Mullet Venus"?)

script:
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I am a resident of [CITY] in King County. I am calling to demand the immediate release of those currently detained in King County Jail and the Kent Regional Justice Center awaiting court proceedings. They have been deprived of their constitutional right to appear before a judge and seek their release, and face increased risk of contacting COVID-19 while in jail. I am calling on [JUDGE ROGERS/ATTORNEY SATTERBERG/EXECUTIVE CONSTANTINE] to do the right thing, and do everything in his power to release these individuals immediately.

Washington DC situation: ???? anybody actually *in* DC? 

there's a lot of conflicting information about what's happening in DC right now, and both sides are accusing the other side of being "misinformation bots." >_________< anybody here who *isn't* a misinformation bot in the DC area have any actual information? (if you are a misinformation bot please label your post as such to avoid confusion, thank you)

open letter to Tr*mp 

Dear Mr. Impeached President:

I fight facism.
I am anti-facist.
I AM ANTIFA.
and I am not alone.

likeliness of communications blackouts in major US cities: making plans, taking action 

"There is a non-zero possibility that major US cities are about to get their civilian communications infrastructure turned off or significantly restricted. If this idea scares you too much to contemplate, please move on. I can't think of how to CW this appropriately, so my apologies for your anxiety, but this is important to my social circle, so I'll continue."

Twitter video link: getting out of zip ties 

please note that it's pointed out in replies that police don't use standard store-bought zip ties, there's a special "military" version they use and this trick will not work with them. pictures are included so you can check to see which are currently in use.

re: CW: domestic abuse, violence, uspol, LONG 

and because I shamefully forgot to say and have been reminded: BLACK LIVES MATTER. this whole horrible mess has been built on a mountain of BlPOC bodies, and white people, like myself, need to step the fuck up and END THIS. we can't build a world without authoritarian violence that still contains racism. racism is *part* of that violence, it's the foundation of everything that's happening.

listen to your POC neighbors, especially BlPOC. they very likely already have a plan. they have been through this fire all their lives. they know what's happening in their bodies and souls. honor their pain and their work. *listen* to them. and *follow* their directions.
