Thought I saw a new-to-me mushroom in the yard, but at closer inspection they turned out to be ghost plants! Monotropa uniflora, freaky little chlorophyll-free parasitic plants. 🆒

How usable is a #pinebookpro as a daily driver? I just had my laptop potentially lost by greyhound (they’re looking for it supposedly) and I don’t have a lot of cash for a new computer and greyhound is a terrible company that gives you $250 and a nice “fuck you” if they lose your shit. I’m looking for something that can run qutebrowser, be a competent development machine, let me watch videos, and play gameboy emulators. Being able to run Ardour or another DAW would be a plus. It seems from reviews that the Pinebook Pro fits the bill but I’d like the opinion of other folks, especially owners of the device.

This is a poster from the Black Panthers and honestly I think about it a lot and it deeply effects how I approach activism and my thoughts about "work."

I always boil it down to a mantra "there's no such thing as a 'jobless rate'."

I wanted to take this time to once again thank every single being on fedi that posts pictures, even mundane ones, with image descriptions. Thank you for describing your screenshot, your drawing, your selfie, your cat. Seriously. Thank you. I'm not sure if you realize how much that means to me.

Friends, American or no - take care of yourselves. Tonight is a lot.
I hope that you can, as our mod so often says, be a safe place for yourself.

"Accidental hipsters": a new book showcases the street fashion of seniors in Chinatowns across North America.

> “We were just enamored by these grandmas and grandpas we saw on the street,” [co-author Valerie] Luu said.
>
> “It would be like a patchwork of different textures, colours and fabrics — sometimes three florals at once or six shades of pink. We were like, ‘Who are they?’

St Paul 2020: Take a bike ride down Summit Ave and get treated to an electric cello performance while folks play softball in the park

project time!
Spouse made a bag to hold a colapsable camping table. It came with a monopod spike to push it into the ground, but we got a cheap camera tripod to deploy it on sidewalks - handy for take out lunch while tricycling around town.

A rocket stove is an efficient and hot burning stove using small-diameter wood fuel. Fuel is burned in a simple combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney, which ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface.

I think I want to bicycle around town wearing tweed and knickerbockers.
