@aprrrl too true
@aprrrl "yes unless you really don't want ferengi" is also a 2020 voting mood.
@juniper wonderful, will check out!
@juniper yes please let's do more jazz talk. i love jazz.
@mhoye One of the things I love in *Strong Female Protagonist*, and why I wish they get back to finishing it: early on, it's revealed that all the people with useful superpowers (like the person who can talk with diseases, or whatever, that can really make the world better) got disappeared before anyone knew about them. All that's left are folks with punching powers. The story's arc is about why, and what can they do about it?
Boulder-area folks, stay safe, and reach out to me if you need anything because of the #CalWoodFire. We're monitoring but not expecting that we'll be in an evacuation area
@InvaderXan I've intersected with my parallels sometimes, I'm sure. The nearer ones, anyway. Like, I've had bits where I strongly suspect we slipped up and stepped into each others' realities briefly.
@InvaderXan Oh, I keep informal lists of alternate-reality versions of me, too! It never occurred to me that any of them might have a gender, though, but I bet some do. For sure I know at least one of them went to school in the Pacific Northwest and never left and really likes it and is very crunchy.
@aprrrl I am, thank you. It's a lot, but I am.
Alas, I wish I knew.
@aprrrl Oh, this delights me. Also excited for the TSL Kickstarter, BEE TEE DUBS.
In the USA, a typical person has $60000 of debt by the end of their life. Your overall net wealth is very likely to be a negative number, after living to get into debt and perpetually paying it back. Over an entire human lifetime, most people in the richest country the world has ever known, will effectively own nothing and earn less than nothing.
And yet, the idea persists that communism is bad because it means that “you can’t own anything.”
You don’t own anything now.
@brainblasted I've never seen that kind before and WOW now I'm caremad. Half my family is from Tanzania, and when I've used my very little Swahili in Dar, there was zero surprise or remark. Just "cool, we can talk Swahili until we discover the limits of your Swahili". Who gets off on this kind of video?
I was halfway through writing something about how "here I am again waiting in the doctor's parking lot" when she came rushing back to the car to tell me that we were at the wrong location. One quick drive later and I have dropped her off at the right location. It's a little frustrating having doctors not have reliable office locations.
@InvaderXan my "favorite" pizza was when I lived in Hakodate, in Hokkaidō, where it was a pie crust full of melted cheese and clams.
