if you think people are demanding that you feel guilty about racism you've completely misunderstood the situation. feeling guilty doesn't help with antiracism and so nobody is going to ask you to do that

Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!

@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.

If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!

If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇

Cheers!

Stuck in a ho(w)le?

Banging on the conun-drum?

Das #Fediverse - als Schaubild. Hier nun die endgültige Fassung. Vielen Dank an @imke!

The context switching mastodon/SM is kind of nuts huh.

Imagine talking to a person IRL, and you switched topics as often as your TL, that's be wild.

Met a friendly, drunk Ukranian last night. No German, broken English interjected with Russian.

He kept saying кайф (kejf) "euphoria caused by narcotic intoxication, pleasant idleness" to approximately mean 'cool'.

Originally an arabic word, related to 'kif', the powdery trichoms of cannabis, from which the german verb 'kiffen' (to get high) presumably comes.

gonna make a new line of bumper stickers that say "save the earth, it's the only planet with capitalism" to try and appeal to the billionaire demographic

I find it ever harder to take vegetarianism seriously :/

Don't get me wrong, I do think that humans and animals need to work together, and I do think there are ways that can be non-exploitative, but when people shun factory-meat, but are happy with factory-milk/eggs, I'm just like wut
