Cloudflare + 8chan + ❄️ 🍑
Still have yet to see a calm, reasoned, well constructed argument as to how Cloudflare's personal business decision is a violation of the ever-ephemeral and nebulous concept of "free speech".
I understand there are nuances to laissez-faire desires but they're not being made well known.
Lol Larry blocked me, after starting up a political discussion, and being disrespectful. This is after accusing me of "being political on a tech forum" and disrespecting me with the Southern "have a nice day" which means "fuck you". Some people are incapable of self examination. I'll be reflecting on this conversation, I hope he does too.
It's been taking me forever to figure out why it seems like my potato plants suddenly flattened, why garlic plant stalks were suddenly snapping, why their bulbs were becoming uncovered.
I went to dig up a quarter of the garlic today (~10 plants) since they had been periodically dying off. But no, all but 2 were fucking gone. How the hell do birds like garlic. I'm not a farmer and it's only 25 m2 but damnit I'm gonna need a scarecrow.
USA, Racism, Censorship
CBS did a hard censor (cut all sound, choose camera not pointing at him) of Jeff Daniels explaining the horrors of racism in the play "To Kill A Mockingbird" in a sentence that begins "America needs to do better..."
Usually they just bleep out curse words (in this case the words were probably "fucking dead") but I do wonder why they chose a more extreme censor for this particular case...
Fire Emblem 3 Houses (Femdom?)
If I could RPG way off the rails, my character would try to make Edelgard a fierce Queen who overthrew the nobility and patriarchy and defeated the Alliance and Kingdom. Ferdinand would be emasculated, worshipping her while being her footstool. Bernadette would be the ruthless Captain of her battalions. Dorothea, done with lousy men, would be lead of Edel's harem. Caspar and Hubert would be advisers of military and magic. Petra married to Edel, Brigid now an ally.
Fire Emblem 3 Houses (No Spoilers)
So I wasn't sure what to expect from a Fire Emblem game but I was hoping the RPG aspect would've been less on-rails. Claude of the Gold Deer was more my RPG kind of guy, jovial and generally lulzy. But for magic reasons I went with Black Eagles and Edelgard.
Really quickly I found that the RPG aspect is pretty interesting, so is it bad that my first thought was "as her teacher, corrupt the princess, make her want to become the Queen of all of Fódlan!"
