Pretty cool to see this bold support for trans rights on a local bus in Fife!

Oh no! The gays must be in severe distress at the Biscuit Factory...

Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness 

I came across this rather accurate #quote from Terry Pratchett's "Men at Arms" #Discworld novel again:

«The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while the poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This was the Captain Samuel Vimes ‘Boots’ theory of socioeconomic unfairness.»"

My body: ... So are you listening or what?

Me: Come on, you're seriously trying to tell me that if I just lie down, take a nap and ignore my problems then I'll feel better?

My body: Yes, you're ill.

Me: Oh okay little buddy - if self-help gurus have taught me anything it's that I've gotta face up to my challenges and WORK. Sigma grind-set my way through this.

My body: If you don't lie down I'll make you.

Me: Ooh, I'm so scared, you're really gon-

Me: zzz

Its recovery was supported by a LIFE project from the EU, with the coordinated efforts of many.

Got talking to this American guy while his friend was hitting on my friend and he kept asking me global political questions. He kept calling me a 'genius' for understanding super basic European power mechanics and politics.

Firstly - I do live here, so..?

Secondly - it's your country's hegemony, mate. I dunno why I know this stuff and you don't??

Food stuff, carbs, sadness 

I had a pretty bad day and I used food to get through. I was like a sad Hungry Caterpillar. I ate:

- 5 Oreos
- 1 small veggie pizza
- A banana and 3 scoops of choc icecream

And you know what? It stopped me from crying in a corner. I had enough motivation to take out the food waste and do laundry.

Carbs actually increase serotonin levels. I am not going to make myself feel bad for a day spent eating many carbs. Carbs are good for you.

Sometimes I am worried that I will roll my eyes so hard at a silly crypto scheme that they will get stuck facing backwards inside in my skull

This was predictable. Facebook/Meta is now encrypting the QP data so that Firefox and other privacy conscious browsers that strip the tracking data can't. Only way to avoid it is to not use Facebook at all. #DeleteFacebook #SurveillanceCapitalism www.ghacks.net/2022/07/17/face…

As Elliot Page controversy stirs, remember trans, non-binary and gender-fluid people are accepted in Hawaiian culture (i.e. mahu), & play vital roles in our resistance against colonization & US genocide of Hawaiians. Binary gender is a Western, imperial concept, forced on us.
