Ok, something just clicked mentally.

The US is falling apart. This could very well be the start of the rapid failure cascade that leads to either civil war or outright chaos. A lot of people could be about to die.

i think the police have collectively flushed what was left of the economy down the toilet so i guess we can stop pretending that we need to urgently open up without any precautions

‪Anyone who thought the coronavirus lockdowns were about authoritarianism and government control should pay close attention to current events. What’s happening in the US right now is what authoritarism actually looks like.‬

Chicago protests, police violence 

The loop trains are all shut down. The bridges over the river are up. The mayor declared a 9pm curfew at 9pm.

This is not a curfew, this is a trap. If you know anybody who is downtown right now, try to check in on them. There's a pretty good chance that they're going to be arrested and/or injured/killed by police tonight.

TFW you're low on food and your sleep cycle is broken so when you wake up the store's already closed.

food, question 

What's the most convenient type of meat to cook?

selfie EC, boosts OK 

My hair is properly floofy now and my goodness I'm cute!

cooking appliance idea, probably bad 

What if, power regulator connected in series with food to heat it through a constant internal current?

Anyone else kinda hoping this riot turns into a full-scale nationwide revolution?

This shit is real. George Floyd's murder was senseless. Instead of focusing on what trigger this rage, the media will focus on properties that went up in flames. A man was murdered by a racist police culture and the perp is sitting at home guarded by a bunch of cops.

Also, in case you're wondering: please interact.

We need a new gun control law restricting access to lethal weaponry for people who voluntarily join institutions whose only claim to existence is a structurally endorsed monopoly on lethal violence.

I'm really interesting in moving my cloud service consumption into options that are paid, private, self-hosted, federated, or OSS.

Gmail -> Fastmail (?)
Plex -> Jellyfin
Dropbox -> ?
Twitter -> Mastodon
Slack/Discord -> Matrix (?)
