Pinned toot

Books and weight reps are alike.
There is light ones and there is heavy ones. The light ones pile up & feel good or bad, important or not. Heavy ones are those that really matter, but you're never going to get them without pilling up the light ones. Heavy ones will give you an emotional, intellectual &/or physical orgasm that no light ones could ever give you, but without pilling up those light ones you will collapse under the heavy ones. Light ones are the journey, heavy ones the enlightenment.

I talk today to my microwave.
But do not realize just how brave
I'm being with all I say transmitted
To distant shores by Alexa, which I've permitted.

We're in something worse than 1984 quite soon. Surveillance and control apparatus are already lightyears in advance of any Stasi wet dream. Now it's just cooking frog in pot.

Social ranking / ubiquitous surveillance to filter the middle / upperclass such that only lapdogs get mortgages, afford private schools, 6-figure jobs, will ensure this.

It's not doomsaying, it's just journalism; something wiped out by capitalist capture of info dissemination

**Hambach Forest: Journalist dies after fall from tree-house bridge**

"Police have spent days evicting activists from the forest but say no actions were taking place when the man fell to his death. Activists have been there for six years in an attempt to keep the woods from being cut down."

Doctor: I'm terribly sorry but the tests are back. Your child is artistic.

Parents: (sob)

Doctor: Now don't worry, it's not the end of the world. Your child will never have the mind of an executive, but with modern innovations like Etsy, Patreon and Kickstarter, they may be able to pay rent well into their mid-20s.

Parent: Did... did crayons do this

Doctor: Who can say? We're exposed to so many forms of art every day: music, poetry, language, geometry..

Parent: We're getting crayons BANNED

Hey @Gargron can we pretty please have limited Markdown formatting?.. I mean bold, italics, underline, strikethrough, monospace. That's all I'm asking for.

Hé, je fais partie d'un projet regroupant différentes associations culturelle et sociale de ma commune, et pour l’organisation, plutôt que d’utiliser google docs comme beaucoup, les tableurs à remplir sont sur Framacalc!

Y’a du progrès! 🙂

(Faudrait que je demande qui a eu l’idée tiens.)

@lanodan @bram @Wolf480pl Just as the former NSA director asked "why don't we just collect all of the signals?" someone at Cloudflare might have said "why don't we just MiTM all of the internet?"

Google = bad. Let's move everything to cloudflare.

Sigh, I suppose people who major in IT, do not minor in history...
