This Independence Day, remember the native people who have suffered but preserved and survived for all these years despite our government's best efforts:
Donate to the Navajo Nation Covid-19 relief fund (both money and supplies, like homemade cloth masks!):
Support native owned businesses:
Donate to the Black Hills Bail and Legal Defense Fund:
Don't just decry America, help support and bring about its future
@revolverocelot gotta disagree with you on that. :3

Do you need to invest in expensive to make great lewks? No. If you use 'cheap' poorly made stuff will you struggle to enjoy what you make (bc frankly the product doesnt perform well) Probably
Are there medium grounds & good dupes? Yes.
Invest ur money into skincare before ever investing in makeup.
Learn abt your skin & its needs bc that will affect what you will buy & how you need to use it.

Today is #Juneteenth in the United States and Labour Day in Trinidad & Tobago.
To me, it seems like today is a day full of liberation energy, a day when that energy bears fruit.
Today, you give back to Black people, and pay them for their work.
@mint ooh ooh my brother and I ised to rent that one from blockbuster all the time!
To explain, there is a current image going around atm where if you set it as your wallpaper, your phone bricks itself. This is because it has to convert the colour mapping, and during a luminance calculation for this, it has to weigh the three colours to about how the human works.
So easy right? Calculate the luminance of each colour and add them together. There is some floats in here but not a problem... Right? Nope, FUCKING GOOGLE DECIDED TO ROUND THE NUMBERS BEFORE ADDING THEM TOGETHER.
This means that a SINGLE pixel in this image goes through this calculation and its total luminance is calculated as 256... If you are unaware, this value should never exceed 255... So not only is there very bad rounding up here, there is no fucking validation!!!

@thraeryn absolutely! There's at least one bookcase going to the curb so someone else can love it, and I'm donating a ton of old clothing. :3
