Interesting fact of the day. In ancient egyptian culture the saying "Eaten the heart" was a reference to grieving without justification, which was one of the mortal sins that would keep you out of their version of heaven.

It was one of the negative confessions recited by the dead during the weighing of the heart against the feather of Maat (sometimes called the feather of truth).

Am trying to grow grapes this year, because why not? The variety is called 'Strawberry'. I have no idea if any actual fruit will happen but it's exciting to find out.

The actual strawberries in the other photo are called 'Marshmello' , which amuses me unreasonably.

I have good news: once my mom's ex husband gets all his shit out of our house. I'll have plenty of space for a room full of home servers

Anyone have any tips on running ethernet cables? he wouldn't let me run CAT-6 to the basement and install a decent switch because "You'll probably break something or burn down the house". It shouldn't be too difficult because the modem is fairly close to the stairs. The room underneath the stairs is unfinished and would be a good place for a noisey switch. From there it shouldn't be too hard to run to various rooms downstairs. This would greatly decrease the traffic over the airwaves and provide faster connections for the TV and game console downstairs.

is it bad practice to run it through the heat vents in the ceiling? asking because that would be so much easier and so much less commitment

thinking about the ridiculous levels of bioessentialism in Wheel of Time, like not just in the setting's formal magic system, but like all the little world-building details.

like making a big deal about a female main character who always wears pants and refuses skirts/dresses and how the author always refers to her pants as "men's breeches" never just "breeches".

or the belief that a man could never be king of andor because the throne is too small for their huge, muscular frames

So I've noticed this trend recently where they focus on heterosexual relationships in movies and TV series.

OK, I get it, this is a man-woman couple, political correctness and everything.
But why are you trying to shove it down my throat?
Why there are these long completely unnatural cringe-inducing scenes of them kissing?
Does it really matter for a plot that they are of different genders?
Does some conservative speech police force you to put heterosexual couples everywhere?


When I want something from my wife, I just ssh into her PC and run some espeak

you could die living off-grid, and that's fine. like, its about as probable as dying on a long backpacking trip to a wilderness area. definitely possible, but you'll be fine as long as you don't fuck up.

so don't fuck up πŸ™‚

that's 1000x better than a lifetime of grinding under the wheel of capitalism let me tell ya. sure its safer, but fuck that existential dread.

It turns out there is a 'general complaints department'. It's called the internet.

smh never using "enterprise" linux ever again, fuck this shit. totally useless

Important thing for all who can see this.

If someone confronts you on your racism or sexism... that means that they like you enough and trust you enough to hear and listen.

If they didn't think you were redeemable, if they didn't think you were worth it, they would roll their eyes and just avoid you. Block on sight, shut down in conversation.

If we confront you about it, no matter how bruskly it may seem. It means that we legitimately think you are better.

As I really love these comics about #adhd I want to share them with you :)
