where do the kids go to download torrents these days? a show I want to watch is not available by any other means.
Thinking about how autistic kids in the past were said to have been changelings, fey replacements for stolen human infants.
Thinking about how the depiction of the fey in fiction has always made so much sense to me, bound as they are to to rules that don't make sense to humans but provide the fey with their powers somehow.
Hey y'all, if you like my emoji commissions, you might be interested in this emoji set I'm slowly building called Mutant Standard. It's not like other sets - it's a unique take that's introducing true gender neutrality, pride flags and symbols, furry emoji and more for everyone to enjoy.
Nearly 7,000 have already been made and it's free to download. There are different instructions and downloads to help you use them in various popular apps. :)
You have heard of entire D&D parties made up of Bards, and that's ok: they're a band.
But consider... Bard armies. Marching bands.
Going to bounce our sidekiq server, probably you won't even notice any interruption but if you do just give it a second.

It's interesting, I feel like up until around 2014 I was on-point, super sharp and really good at my job. I was keeping up with all of the major trends, learning new techs eagerly, etc.
When I left my startup and then had a lot of life stress in 2014 something changed. I struggle so hard now to learn new concepts. Docker, RxJS, even CSS-in-JS tools just bounce right off my thick skull. It's daunting.
I really hope I can bounce back.

Here's the whole rules and etiquette with the changes:
weirder.earth rules changes (talking about cops~) Show more
Hey, just to let you know, in the spirit of other instances and in the light of the humanitarian crimes and the warped and unjust security culture that exists in many parts of the world, people who work for police organisations or immigration enforcement organisations are not welcome here.
(This doesn't mean we will refuse legally valid requests from law enforcement, it just means that it would be the only situation you aren't shown the door.)
I can no longer read the word "dirty" without immediately thinking "computer" and singing the line in my head, thanks Janelle Monaé
Therapy is great, pass it on!
@mykola a trailer for weirder.earth disguised as the trailer for Yet Another X-Files Movie, except that mulder and scully are investigating rumours of a social network for cryptids:
scully: what are you doing?
mulder, dead serious: i'm "shitposting", scully.
scully, rolling her eyes: you are making this up.
mulder: no, this is how i signal to the other weird-earthers that i'm cool, you know, one of them. see? already a hit, one of them sent me a steve buscemi image.
Instances should record dramatic over-the-top trailers for people considering joining.

Blocking a troll? Abjuration.
Call to action? Conjuration.
Weather app? Divination.

Came into the office today after spending most of this week sick and working from home. There's a loudspeaker that could fill an auditorium set up in the small room where I work for some sort of presentation. There's a ton of crowd noise. There are sirens outside. I want to crawl under a rock, but then I remember this is just what the world is like. :(
