Built a raw coal to coal (60in/90ish out) factory in Factorio today.

Just did a phone call in five minutes that I've been putting off for like three years.

@t54r4n1 BTC is a cancerous tumour on the electrical grid.

Freenode, personal experience +/- 

The Freenode implosion made me think of the years I spent there. I helped a lot of people, many ungrateful and more angry at me than any customer in my half a decade in retail. I remember also drama with a channel owner who wouldn't moderate a channel leading to duplicate channels with different rules on moderation. I remember meeting a lot of awesome people, many I still follow on birdsite.

Why isn't compulsory military service considered a form of slavery; if not psychological torture if you're forced to murder.

@spacekookie @goat @julialuna It's too easy to replace one binary (he/she) with another (cis/trans).

@krinkle That was exactly the path my brain followed.

@rx I see this message; but then, I also mostly follow people on Twitter. Be nice if more X-posting happened and Mastodon actually got more popular.

Reminder, 13th amendment, ACAB 

The US still has legal slave labor in the form of the prison industrial complex.

Slavery is allowed as "punishment for a crime".

The title of "slave catcher" still applies to current, modern day police!

Their job to catch slaves has never changed since the inception of policing.

imagine if there was a feminist movement against human trafficking that centered the rights, agency, and well-being of domestic and agricultural laborers, instead of a feminist movement for increased criminalization of sex work (which, of course, makes sex workers more vulnerable to being trafficked because it's more dangerous to operate openly) under the guise of concern for the victims of human trafficking. wouldn't that be something?

@fribbledom Text to speech still blows my mind even to this day.

@mbrubeck I'm drowning in this new information. *hicc*

I wonder how many people realize that the US federal government could make the usage of bitcoin illegal?

Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.
