@Mikesonn I think he was just making a funny.

In terms of "car" vs "driver", I'd say that the Pi Press and Strib have both heard our community's concerns and have decided not to change. In my business we call it "Won't Fix". We get to decide how to respond

@Mikesonn If it lowers your blood pressure, that's probably the right call, but the confusion over "fred" was pretty funny. I think you're mostly miffed at him for other stuff that he's unlikely to change

Most side projects die at the hands of $DayJob and my 1000 other hobbies, but I'm pretty excited about this one

we talked about cribbage for like two days and somehow this never came up

Y'all probably listen to 99% Invisible already but this history of squirrels in American cities was fascinating and delightful:


but I'd argue that the discussion about feeding squirrels does not consider @earthtopus ' special relationship with his backyard pals

@alex God damn it, I started clicking around now and I also found perfect gifts for both my Mom and Dad, so congrats on getting all my money, Sports Illustrated 💸

Seriously, I can't help but seeing those "Were a Proud St. Minnethomas Acadaschool Family" and reading it internally as "My Children All Deserve Wedgies", which is probably not very generous of me

Wait, it got too real

Either this is an absurdist satire of the "We support [private school]" signs ubiquitous in my neighborhood, or someone just really loves pizza.

Either way, I approve 🍕

@alex Tell me how! This would be a perfect housewarming gift for my friends

MSP Social.net

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.

Recurring contributors: @hfrazey, @brennen@mastodon.social, @Jennybellium, @densetsu, @iangreenleaf, @britvulcan, @joeld, @yeahno, @paulference, @billmk, @brandon, @benjotron, @june @wafflesoup and anonymous.
