"yes the Soviet Union was authoritarian, but the measures it took were neccesary to prevent counterrevolution!!"

the measures taken:
- banning homosexuality
- forcibly relocating minorities
- launching a dog into space

I don't know what the hell is going on with bigotry right now, it's fucking everywhere and I hate it. I thought we all agreed that we hated it and we were all trying to fight it, and now I'm listening to bigoted shit from my parents, who I could swear were *the same people who taught me not to be a bigot*!

I went from 'Pff, not a real Zelda game' to 'Just take my fucking money' in about half a second of watching the new trailer

@InvaderXan crabs are like "this is the ideal body shape. you may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like."

Nature really likes crabs and keeps trying to evolve more of them.

Carcinisation is the name of a process of convergent evolution, in which crustaceans evolve into crab-like forms. In decapod crustatceans, there have been at least 5 distinct times when crab-like animals have evolved.

Coconut crabs, king crabs, and hermit crabs are not types of true crab, and are only distantly related.

Gah, the Co-op are not actually stripping their ads from the Spectator, I have committed a cardinal sin of social media and shared something too soon.

No YOU'RE watching videos about Chadwick Boseman and crying while you're meant to be working

I'm British and I'm so fucking sorry please forgive me

I hope one day open source smart hardware is as pretty as proprietary hardware. As superficial as it is, aesthetics can really sell me on a device.
