This seems relevant to my masto friends:

"So all the Animorphs books are available online for free with [Katherine Applegate]'s blessing, btw"

Started my first actual multiplayer game of Stellaris today.

Was somewhat overwhelming as we had all the DLC enabled and like 14 players across multiple Discord rooms, but was a fun 5 hours or so.

Tomorrow: Numenera.
Now: Pizza.

The World President took the call.
"All right, Dr Dastard, what are your demands?"
"Media always talk about my inventions and schemes, and call me 'mad scientist' or 'evil genius'."
"I can't control media-
"But it's not just me! It's never a lone genius! My team deserves credit!"

"you’re coming from another part of the internet/a completely different context where, when looking at how i and other (educated, intelligent) people in my age group speak online, you completely miss the nuances and brush it off as something to be mocked, because in the circles you’re a part of varied capitalization is interpreted as a sign of incompetence."

Wanna have a bit of fun watching people get all confused while revealing society's inherent patriarchal bias?

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

idk, sometimes I forget that despite my social circles offline and online both largely being composed of queer nerds, the skew on queer vs nerd vs other identifiers tends to be fairly wildly different

I mean, normally that just changes which jokes/shitposts are effective

Was chatting about The Matrix trilogy (plus Animatrix) with friends briefly, got onto the discussion about original intent about the film wrt the whole "humans as batteries" originally being different and casually dropped the "actually it's a trans allegory" line

Didn't really get a chance to fully explain as we were just getting up to leave and grab buses but
nobody had heard that angle before, despite knowing a lot of other trivia and philosophical stuff and being fairly progressive 🤔

The creator of Animal Crossing talking about how he made the game because he was lonely and then proceeded to make a game about hanging out with furries is a big mood

a super moon is when the moon is more or less as close to us as it gets

a blood moon is when a lunar eclipse causes it to appear red

and a wolf moon is just the first full moon of january and is not a phenomenon as such, but I fully agree that the whole thing sounds cooler with it in there, and it's not false

hokaze boosted

today I have learned that the upcoming full moon is, not even joking, a "Super Blood Moon", or since it's the first full moon of january, a "Super Blood Wolf Moon"

I am all for this
