Pinned toot

If you'd like to read a blog about why Ocarina of Time was the first videogame that aspired to be a work of art, boy do I suspiciously have exactly that blog for you:

People keep making this argument that in the UK is pointless and that they should go and protest in China. But, like, how?

#ExtinctionRebellion #InternationalRebellion Oxford Circus in London is looking a lot more fun than usual, with the pink boat float blasting music to around a thousand ravers and rebels. Arrests are happening slowly and the situation is often tense, but the police seem somewhat overwhelmed.

don't say you want vulnerable people to feel safe unless you're willing to make abusers feel unsafe

Someone really needs to write one of those 'How to change someone's mind' articles, except it's, 'How to have your mind changed'.

I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.

Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.

I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.

Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️ :pixelfed:

So I have recently come back to Mastadon (mainly and I'm looking for more people to follow.
Specifically looking for people interested in:

#laboratory / #laboratory_science

And like pretty much anything else similar to the above. So if you toot a lot of things related to the above I would greatly appreciate if you retoot, favourite or reply to this.

Would someone be willing to help me review the best fediverse clients for mobile?

Man, Leviathan by Mastodon (the band) is such a great album. Absolutely insane, wall-to-wall (head)bangers.

Just realised that Hands All Over, by Soundgarden, is about . So, we're talking, late-'80s, longhaired, barechested Chris Cornell bellowing that people are 'going to kill [their] mother' (i.e., nature).

It's pretty epic, and
got me thinking: RATM aside, why isn't there more heavy protest music?

I'm a member of the Green Party, but I don't want to be one of those tribalists who never criticise their own side, so: Caroline Lucas should've voted for the CU and SM amendments yesterday. Not doing so brought the whole country a step closer to the No Deal disaster scenario.

I'd been collecting scrap paper for a month so I could campaign for the environment in the most environmentally friendly way possible!

Started painting the streets a day early by sticking posters up all over the place on my lunchbreak today.

Periodic reminder that electric cars will not solve climate change.

There's a bit of a running theme in the UK of uncovering massive problems and doing nothing. Iraq War - massive failure of governance. The response? Leave everything the same, so that the exact same thing can happen again. GFC - massive failure of the financial system - nothing's changed to stop it happening again. EU referendum - massive failure to regulate spending and online advertising. Again, no actual attempt to fix it. Feels like, as a country, we've given up.

.@MarinaHyde has absolutely outdone herself: “anyone wanting to keep Corbyn in a meeting room next week should have an emotional support terrorist on standby to help him through the process.”
