NOTE:

I block pleroma/GS instances when I spot them, so if you're a non-shitbag using one of those techs, I likely will not see your responses, and I'm sure I've missed amazing responses from lovely folks, but I consider minimizing exposure between myself and pleroma/GS a higher priority than worrying about missing out on people. I'm not special. you'll find others to talk to; so will I. ^_^ <3

so apologies if my silence is rude, but it's due to circumstances beyond our control.

be well! ^_^

projected covid deaths among school children 

Betsy Devos today said "only" 0.02% of kids are likely to die when they go back to school.
That's 14,740 children.
Or, more than four 9/11s.
And they're all children.

There was a guy named Ken McElroy who lived in Missouri and was known locally as the "town bully". He was an unrepentant criminal, thug, and strongman, indicted 21 times but only convicted once, and he successfully appealed that. The conviction was for shooting (but not killing) a local grocer, and after he got out he threatened to kill the grocer for good. The next day, McElroy was shot dead in broad daylight in the middle of town, in front of a crowd of somewhere between 30 and 45 people. Mysteriously, nobody happened to see who shot him, so nobody was ever charged with his death.

I've got 99 problems

so it totals to 297. that's how many problems I have

Harper's, bestiality 

Reminder that everyone who co-signed that letter in Harper's has now co-signed a letter with Malcolm Brenner, who's admitted to fucking a dolphin and trying to fuck his family's dog.

I want Ready Player Two to be a legal procedural about all the lawsuits filed against Mary Sue by the people who helped him get the girl and all the money in the world at the end of the first book so that they can get a piece of the pie too.

WEIRD ENGLISH FACT OF THE DAY: English just likes having the word "the" all over the place. There's a lot of "the" in the language. Just get used to the feeling.

Dishonored, covid ref, theoretical spoilers, faff 

me: I don't know if I want an Emily face mask for the rare plaguey fancy times, I don't even know yet if I'm going to like Emily. I barely met her so far in the first game, and nobody in this series is exactly a saint. for all I know she committed war crimes between the two

Y'know what sucks?

The BLM protests are still happening with less media attention.

The Portland police are rioting and it's not being reported by media at large as people are being assaulted in the streets.

Another Black trans girl, Brayla Stone, was murdered in Little Rock, AR and she's being misgendered in the news while her alleged killer is bragging about making a 5K hit.

not reacting to it other than to wipe tears away while I smile

what, do people need context? I was born ruined. what more do you need

current events, thinks and feels 

hey, y'know that feeling, like you're not convinced you really have any idea what's actually happening in the world right now, like you're not really sure what the world at large will even look like at this time next year? not even your neighborhood?

you're not alone. don't think you are. anyone who tells you differently is trying to take something from you, whether it's obvious what they want or not.

literally no one ever has been through this combination of all this before now, and you're doing the best you can with what you've got to work with.

Dishonored (Covid, psych issues) 

it's a great game but this time to play it is not great if I'm honest because holy shit my escapist fiction world is about plagues and religious fascists. that's not fiction right now, is it?

so I may have to set it aside. maybe work on ECHO and see if I can finally see the ending, since my integration is going better than terrible
