Hey poly friends, a friend of mine is considering entering a poly relationship for the first time and nobody involved has done poly before. I'm an outsider who knows completely zero about this but I figured Mastodon would know where to find the good reading material. Where should I look to point them to best practices, ideas for setting ground rules and boundaries, etc.?
turns out if you have an FM transmitter that sends a signal from your phone to your radio, and you set it to 106.7 FM (i guess it's close enough as a 4x harmonic to the 433Mhz tire sensors broadcast on??? somehow??????)
your music fuckin interferes with tires' signal and your car thinks it doesn't have any tires on it and gives you a TPMS dashboard error
if you change the FM transmitter to like 100.1 or something you're good to go
i hate technology

don't make me tap the sign (the sign says "racism is only about 400 years old, was purposefully invented by major figures in the Enlightenment as part of their self-serving justification of power, and is not a primordial part of human nature that exists in all societies throughout space and time")
