Funny to think what you want to show off, instead of the good photos i mostly like the one that got photobombed by a pigeon 🤔 mastodon.xyz/media/F0kxrZYINXU

Maybe since there’s a huge influx of new folks this can make the rounds and actually be heard this time:

INSTANCE ONLY POSTS WHEN?

HEY EVERYONE! WE CAN SAY "FUCK TERFS" NOW

BOOST TO SAY "FUCK TERFS"

just because i shitpost all day doesn't mean i don't do anything valuable with my time.

i mean, it doesn't mean that, but it's true

I'm aware I'm not much on plants OR leftism but the climate is too bleak to get much done, and also my plants.

You know go is a relaxing game because the time with it seems to pass instantly.

That is a lie of course, what happens is the computer wages my life for each game and when it's done feeding me my own teeth it sends me to the shadow realm and steals some more.

It's fun though, once I calm down.

just a reminder for mastodon newbies: if there's a badly moderated instance that you're receiving harassment/spam/etc from and it's not blocked by your instance's admins, you can block everything from that instance on your own terms!

Not for nothing that AI generated images being horrifying mashups is taken as a huge and complete success by everyone *besides* Very Serious developers. Everyone else can see you are making art. Own it.

In a terrible but useful idea for everyone any computing qualification should have an art history requirement.
Why you ask? It ends the pretension that anything being done in actual software projects is reproducible scientific work (that can't be copyrighted), or requires concession to physical laws like architecture or engineering. It's an art form, and it's not repeatedly figuring out a better way to make good software it's having artistic styles coming in and out of fashion.

Yes, the win was a fluke. Now how did it happen??????

If you're thinking about making a new instance, keep in mind that there are plenty of instances full of alt-right sadboys. But here, you can do something about them by blocking those instances from yours.

I have a list that I keep regularly updated, and it documents a lot of examples of the kinds of things people and admins say on an instance, and I deconstruct common bigoted dogwhistles and conspiracy theories!

The worst part of go is actually winning a game and not understanding how??? Yes, I see that I have the most territory computer, but this isn't even a full size board and you have been dunking on me in ways I don't fully understand for two weeks. Did you just take pity on me?!

I am always open for emoji commissions! My slots are full right now, but you can message me and I can put you on my queue!

Life hack: if you’re very upset about something I highly recommend going out and exhausting yourself with some heavy yardwork, my yard looks good now and I got sprinkled with just enough rain to be enjoyable
