People that take the Glasgow-Edinburgh train have developed this anarcho-communist ticket sharing economy and I love it. It's because return tickets cost literally only 10 pence more than a single, so people just buy returns and leave the other ticket at the station they arrive at.

It's fucking beautiful and more folk need tae know about it

@captainbland Maybe. It's probably more to do with my lazy unwillingness to start the whole essay process until as late as humanly possible, though

There's something about writing essay plans that seriously irks me

Posts that get 20, 30, hell even 50 faves are cheap. I live for the toot that gets exactly one, but the person actually means it - it really is their favorite toot

Hot take: post-apocalyptic fiction is so popular because people desperately want to live lives that aren't yoked by capitalism, but are unable to even conceive of such a thing happening without the world ending first

@redoak Interesting. I've found notion.so a useful tool for personal wiki-style notes and lists, but I can imagine a static site generator performing a very similar function without locking you in to (yet another) service. I can see how it would require a fair amount of thought at the outset to figure out a streamlined workflow, though...

@redoak Ooh, what methods have you been looking at? I was a big fan of notational velocity before I moved to standard notes. NV has the advantage of extreme speed of access/modification, but I think (in my use-case) it was worth sacrificing for SN's richer features and robust (simple) cross-platform support

it's so fucking amazing to me that art is a thing humans do. like we're under absolutely constant pressure to perform, to fulfil ten million different obligations, and yet there are still so many people that just say fuck that i'll make something useless. it doesnt matter how much a piece of art sucks, they all have the potential to be fascinating because they open up the doors to gratuitous emotions and meaning-making, and that is a spellbinding activity all by itself.
