OK the new Lizzo album has basically redeemed this entire week for me, TY Lizzo

Just did my insane table flipping talk, pretty sure it went horribly? Ugh

I regret to inform you that I made it to my gate on time and I am still grinding my teeth trying to hold off another anxiety attack

Well I don't miss this flight because I literally went to the wrong airport, I will miss this flight because I'm on the verge of throwing up in this cab

I've seen a few people complain that the black hole picture is a waste, that humanity has our environment or povery or whatever else as a far far more immediate pressing matter than to take a photo that is 'an orange smear'.

The issue at hand here isn't science funding, the issue at hand is the total structure of industrial capitalism. If you cut astronomy funding to 0, how much do you think of that would go towards social projects? How much would go towards sustainable degrowth? How much would go towards ANYTHING that goes against tje ideological principles of neoliberal capitalism.

On the contrary, there are people who find a deep romantic wonder and an inherent artistic value in things like this. People finding wonder in the world, being humbled by the nature and otherness of it is a beautiful way to look at the world. Don't light your torches at astronomy, capitalism is your issue

Debating watching Fury Road on my computer on this Amtrak to decompress

On an Amtrak and someone on this train has a cell phone with an old timey phone ring tone like it's goddamn 2007 in here

In general I still feel kind of guilty for like, having a life while being at Recurse and not being 110% in the community but I do feel like I am writing better code in general?

This guy at Recurse is talking about how he made a thing for archiving your browsing in real time because sometimes stuff is posted and then rapidly taken down and all I can think is this is a great way to perpetuate harassment campaigns? (eg the doxxing post is taken down within seconds but it's rapidly archived and reposted) I guess this is true for all web archiving but the instantaneous timing of it stresses me out

Grant Morrison also sucks, in their estimation

Today's extremely good cafe eavesdropping is two dope women who worked in comics talking about how Frank Miller sucks

How many times can I listen to "65th and Ingleside" before it gets weird

Here we see a JavaScript programmer deploying his April Fools joke

I guess not surprised but still annoyed at the fact in my search for good books about the Congo I saw "best of" lists of mostly white people (Conrad, Greene, etc) and had to go out of my way to find anything by a Congolese author

of course when we say 'birdsite' we're referring to avibase.bsc-eoc.org/ - the extensive database information system containing over 25 million records about all birds of the world

It is extremely cute they are talking about movies they like

Everything Happens Horse

We are committed to making Everything.Happens.Horse an inclusive and welcoming pasture for everyone.

We've set these ground rules to make it abundantly clear that this kind of behaviour is not acceptable, so that everyone can feel comfortable grazing in the pasture.

Everyone who visits the pasture is required to abide by this code of conduct, both at the event and on any online channels. We will not tolerate harassment of participants or discriminatory behaviour of any form. Specifically:

  • Do not engage in homophobic, racist, transphobic, ableist, sexist, or otherwise prejudiced behaviour.
  • Do not harass people. Stalking, unconsented physical contact, or sexual attention is harassment. Dressing or acting in a certain way is not consent.
  • Every participant's personal space is their own. If you are asked to leave someone alone, or to leave their corner of the pasture, you must respect this.
  • Some attendees may not want their content shared elsewhere. Respect their wishes.
  • Aggression and elitism are not welcome — nobody should be afraid to ask questions.
  • If you break these rules, we may expel you from the pasture.

If you are being harassed or witness a breach of this code of conduct, please use the report function!
