I've downloaded everything from Astronomy Picture of the Day #APOD from the start date to the end of 2019 and put it in a torrent.
If you want a load of background pictures, please seed it once you've got a copy.
Please boost and share
Hey friendos! Want to quit Facebook as well? I run a hubzilla instance and you're very welcome to have a look around.
https://hq.teamrocket.space is open to all left leaning folks of all identities. I'm email@example.com there, feel free to ask any questions, I know initially it can be a bit much of an interface and not enough content, but I'm hoping enough of you good people will come join up for writing longer shitposts and photo sharing perhaps???
I'm in my 30's and a communist, with a lean towards Full Automation and Intersectionality.
I did a test a long time ago that called my social media style "curator" and I think that's accurate. I won't often post my own thoughts, choosing instead to boost the words of others. Boosts are definitely endorsements.
I'm cis, white, male, a uni drop-out, and a software developer both by trade and hobby. I also play a lot of video games in my spare time.
and the thing is, the fucking toroes just say "oh well people just need to be more responsible with their drinking". individualsing factors to dismiss them doesn't counteract their social causes, and the cause here is that pubs should not be open at all
@hasya23 the foundational texts of American culture: the Bible, Huckleberry Finn, Paw Patrol, and a bottle of syrup.
on fedi we don't say "I love you", we say #DeathToAmerica, and I think that's beautiful
For me, on top of everything else that's unforgivable about this country, it will always come down to this:
In 1898, Puerto Rico finally gained (some) autonomy from the Spanish Crown, with the possibility of greater independence in the near future.
Twenty-nine days later, the United States arrived and recolonized the place, and 122 years later, after wounding, killing, infecting, sterilizing, neglecting and otherwise abusing thousands of my people, we're still a colony.
Fuck this modern empire that coopted the liberatory struggle of a colony to turn it into a coaling station populated by hundreds of thousands of people.
Fuck this country that leaves clowns and buffoons in formal charge of us while superseding them with unelected bureaucrats and then asks us to tie ourselves to the rotting husk of our owner.
Fuck this country that even now is doing its very best to keep Puerto Rico from having any control at all, on any level, over its future.
there's was an American monarchist movement to make the heirs of George Washington the monarchy of America, that one to me is funny as fuck
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
