I'm going to try to post :blobpeektrans: stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.

If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

I thought you might like to know that, according to the extremely unscientific methodologies I have at my disposal, MSP Social is really :gay:

people who are like "games should be brutal and unforgiving" piss me the fuck off. have you looked outside?

It's just weird that they go to all the trouble of devising a method of suggesting search results algorithmically, but then we all have to share the same one algorithm and its daft obsessions.

The massive Tech companies and their big-brained AI tech all seem to have agreed that when you type something in a search box, you are looking for a celebrity, and they helpfully suggest celebrities at every conceivable opportunity.

There is no way to tell their algorithms that this is virtually never what you want them to do.

I realize that in 2020 we have bigger problems, but I'd just like them to acknowledge this is fucking bizarre and twisted and maybe let us turn it off.

@lawremipsum lawyers are a natural enemy of the wonderful phenomenon of contradictory polysemy

Kind of wild that it is 2020 and the word "fortnightly" is still more useful (in that it is less ambiguous) than "biweekly"

re: Uspol, :birdsite: link, cursed?? 

@lawremipsum the whole situation is so absurd I'd almost buy it. the incumbent party has been running on a platform of "whatever trump says" right up until the very last days of the election run-up, and is now gonna just spew word salads the rest of the way? amazing.

Like here's the thing. I want to be first in line for a goddamned ship to Mars, or the moon.

But something tells me I am among a tiny minority of people who feels that way to the degree we might want to see them listed as the TOP TWO PRIORITIES in the closing days before an election in this, the year of our Beelzebub, 2020
