The "Problem" Woman of Color in the Workplace: A Model 

the design of twitter & other follow-boost services like tumblr or mastodon is fundamentally untenable and will always create conflict on such scales that people will feel like their only response is violence

Me at 16: I always use proper spelling and punctuation, and I proofread everything I write at least 3 times.

Me at 32: im love,,2 poast on this webbed site

Having a clean bathroom mirror has such a huge effect on my well-being. It’s such a small thing but it feels so nice.

each Lord of the Rings movie, as a PG-13 film, is allowed one "fuck." where would you put them? here's my votes:

-Fellowship: Give them a moment, for fuck’s sake

-Two Towers: We ain’t had nothing but maggoty bread for three fucking days!

-Return: I cannot carry it for you... but I can fuckin carry you!

Do you have tattoos? I’d like to hear about them, especially if you have dark skin and/or body hair.

I’m considering getting one on my upper arm or thigh, just for myself.

This is the most controversial thing I’ll ever say 

Listen, yes I'm hot. But am I also charming and smart? Well, yeah, that too. But am I a good person? Also yes.

Fun fact: each book scanned for the Internet Archive has a unique identifier, usually the title of the item, or its first 16 characters; the volume number, or 00 if there isn't one; and the first 4 characters of the author. So:

I love Shelley’s “Ozymandias,” but I feel the mood in Horace Smith’s much more today:

“In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
‘I am great OZYMANDIAS,’ saith the stone,
‘The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
The wonders of my hand.’— The City's gone,—
Naught but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder,—and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro’ the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.”

hey y'all remember when I encoded the hit film Hackers (1995) in 8M? and how it was entirely unrecognizable, low resolution, low framerate, and had no audio?

well, since then, Mastodon has upped its media limit to 40M

so, I present to you: Hackers (1995) in 40M, with sound, at 24FPS and full resolution! encoded with state-of-the-art tools and codecs for your viewing pleasure

She blew two long plumes of smoke out of the dunes and the thick glass here was still long, no trees at all grew along the water’s edge.
