I'm blocking ost.social because they are a gab friendly instance.

You probably should to.

Love that "1:30 service appointment but this guy usually shows up at least 15-30 minutes early so I'd better start looking for him around 12:45, but on the other hand when he shows up early that's when we're his first stop in the morning, so in theory he could show up on time or even a little bit later, so I'd better plan on a window of approximately 12:45 - 2:00 for this actual 20 minute interaction" energy

I keep forgetting that season 4 of She-Ra is out

I swear I have interesting things to toot, but writing them out requires effort and I'm lazy

Saw an ad on a truck this morning that read (translated from french) "10% goal: become a female truck driver!"

Still thinking about it now

doing a discourse lads 

There's no way this isn't what happened, no ordinary mortal could come up with a toot so good

On november 5th 2019, @garfiald invented time travel, went back to October 2018 to make the best toot ever, then came back and boosted it for present-day clout

My life got a lot better when I stopped being FLOSS-only and started using proprietary services. Hate to say it, but it's true. I connected with a lot more local people, met some great people too.

I don't think trying to convert people from Twitter to Pleroma is a working plan. Twitter just has more users. It's how it is. Convince people already on Twitter to get on Pleroma, and once enough people use both, we no longer have the adoption issue and people can start to abandon Twitter.

Ridesharing is an amazing example of how to pull people from capitalism. Do what you always do, but help others and get paid for it. No corporation involved.

Something like ridesharing but for housing would be rad. Stick your name on the lease, have a bunch of people live there and contribute to the fund, keep the landlord out of it.

I can't see a straight up walkaway happening for a long time. People partake in capitalism because they have to. Unless you can offer everything someone needs, down to every little convience, it seems like a massive idea.

IMO the way to draw users from proprietary services is to include access to them in your own service, but offer more benefits in yours. Want people off Instagram? Pixelfed is a nice alternative, but it has the adoption issue. Make an app that can use both Instagram and Pixelfed. Illegal? Probably. Will it actually work though? Probably.

I know so many people who are tired of capitalism. It's a shame we can't just start disobeying and not get murked.

I'm sure squatting would be a lot more popular if squatted places didn't get wrecked immediately by drug use.

In an earlier thread, I wrote briefly about trans people in medieval Europe, and discussed some of the main issues when studying the medieval history of trans people.

Today, if you'll indulge me, I want to spend some time discussing a single person in detail. I want to talk about the way she's been written about, and about her and what she can teach us about life as a trans person 600 years ago.

This is the story of Eleanor Rykener.
