The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was to convince the world that hierarchy is the opposite of chaos.

Tonight, I drank vodka, and ate kholodnik, pkhali, pelmeni, sprat buterbrodi, chicken bazhe, a bright Russian salad, and something we improvised that was very like mushroom samsa. All this shared with good friends. I cannot ask for more. This is the world I want to build, this is what we take Sabbath to envision, and then redouble our efforts to make real.

List of kiwi farm instances 

Random observations: before cars, street intersections were places you were likely to have social interactions with your neighbors.

so, yesterday, i put together a list of nazi instances i had blocked. that post has been boosted over 60 times. that's cool, i'm glad i did something useful.

but i can't do that kind of thing if i can't eat. my post about needing money for food has been boosted ten times.

if you appreciate and value the work i put into notifying everyone about where the fash are and you have some money to spare, please pay me.

if you can't give, please always boost.

Pondering what I'm thinking of as "attention vampires", things that aren't interesting but that fool you into thinking they are. Many TV shows, move franchises, video games, social media platforms fall under this label. Some I'm quite happy to engage with, too!

Things we didn't do:
- Start the fire
- Shoot the deputy
- Steal the cookies from the cookie jar

Things we did:
- Tried to fight it
- Shot the sheriff
- Put the sham in the shama-lama-ding-dong

Things we will do:
- Survive
- Rock you
- Walk 500 miles
- Walk 500 more

Things we won't do:
- Get fooled again
- Back down
- That

Things we will never do:
- Give you up
- Let you down
- Run around
- Desert you

- I did it again)

Alcanivorax borkumensis is a microbe which digests crude oil. It prefers to live in oxygen-rich saltwater and is very helpful in cleaning up oil spills in ocean and coastal regions.

With enough nitrogen and phosphorus to act as fertiliser for them, these bacteria can become the dominant microbes in a contaminated area. They're just one of at least 7 known species which live off hydrocarbons, but they're probably the most prolific.

Just another of Earth's biological reflexes to help curb the damage which humans are capable of in their hubris.
