national parties: "we're ending homelessness"
everyone: "🌊🌊🌊 #resist!!"
cities: "we're building a shelters/affordable housing/navigation centers on your block"
every freaking block in town: "NOPE NEVER"
The neat part is how in the past week or two i've been critical of a couple specific local people in power and it resulted in white men popping up in the replies or sliding into my DMs to police my tone on it.
Just getting in a good old fuck all the trump defender defenders on the hell site.
"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."
the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."
with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.
been trying to get in the habit of recording tunes i know, because it makes me focus in different ways, so here's a random voice memo of tunes for all you weirdos on here. hopefully a little something beyond green plastic hats for this weekend for ye
i've written and read finnish a fair amount in the past few years but never really spoken it, kind of fell out of use here because i'd rather talk to people i get along with than talk with people only because they know it, but using it even once with a cool person totally messed my language apparatus up the past couple days.
Took the British-Irish dialect quiz as an outsider (it's an option) and here's where it ranked me. Seems like a reasonable guess, really.
