the fact that USians equate “small business” with “one person working hard to support themselves and their family” is an intentional product of propaganda. one-person or family businesses without employees are largely an entirely separate thing and most small businesses aren’t that.

literally saw a job description today that included the phrase "you will become a cog in a team" and I'll tell you what, we used to quit jobs that made us feel like cogs, and I still highly recommend it if you can find something else because you - you - are not a cog, you are a person, and you deserve to be someplace that knows that much at the very fucking least.

Someone replied to this post with “true but it was still a good movie” and I am begging people to be less concerned with whether media is “good” or “bad” and more concerned with what the media says

no more oversharing if you want to know more about me you have to explore my house and listen to the audio logs i left + look at strategically positioned environmental storytelling skeletons

Ahh, I had it backwards! Assumed dances with wolves was the podcast and the episode was about the red nation
I've got recs for days, love me a audio drama!
Unfortunately I don't have any great advice there - I've been enjoying AntennaPod as a podcatcher on Android, but I'm not sure about iOS

Chinese miners are buying storage devices en masse it seems because of Chia cyrptocurrency that uses "Proof of Space" rather than hash solving in mining, and I'm sure every western cyrptobro is going to do the same once the news catch up.

Here’s an image that lives rent free in my head.
Yeah. At no cost, like vehicles that have access to freely take up public space, yet people who do the same are treated like criminals.
Let’s talk public space.

a thing in the UK I don't think a lot of people know about is basically how different professions are slowly being turned into border guards. like people you have to interface with, things like estate agents and teachers, are basically legally required to snitch to the government on illegal immigrants

Did you know a certain word that starts with a g and ends with a y actually refers to romani people and is a racial slur? Really. Stop using that word, holy shit.

I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.

I'm sorry for having great looks and even greater opinions on everything. Can't do much about how I was born

People think I love animals cuz I'm vegan, but like, there's a big difference for me between loving someone and thinking someone doesn't deserve to suffer. I think people generally have an easy time with that distinction until it's about those they deem inferior.
