Technocracy doesn't work because you're not governing spherical cows, you're governing a theme park filled with cloned dinosaurs.

You know what's an isekai that people don't think of as an isekai? The first Super Mario Bros. game.

Listen, you guys, the reason why we have a representative democracy instead of some collectivist commune is because if you try you'll quickly realize people will tolerate anything even a dictatorship over a bunch of fucking meetings.

I sold my soul to Disney. Which is not too bad actually, because it will take ages before it becomes public domain and the devil can claim it.

"Asking for someone on my instance" is the single-user instance equivalent of the phrase "asking for a friend".

I'm at the hotel, motel, holiday inn; I'm at the combination hotel, motel and holiday inn.

I really need to stop being a lazy bum and work on Plan B.

Semantics is about the meaning of words, right? Actually, I don't care, it's just semantics anyway.

You know why computers are so bad? It's because they're too good.

They're so mindbogglingly fast and efficient you can throw any old crap at two chips duck taped together and at least something will come out that people tricks into thinking there's actual technological progress there.

It was all fine pre-80s when they had to be carefully managed because they were only just capable of solving the problems we needed them to solve.

You ever have that thing where you have a problem you can't figure out yourself so you look it up online and you quickly find the solution and it's so simple you don't bother to implant it in your brain.

& later you have the same problem, can't remember the solution & you look it up again, but instead of stumbling on the answer like last time you keep bumping into more and more nonsense while you know there's an easy answer out there and you realize no one online knows anything about anything.

You know those things where they take a page from an existing book and black out everything except a few words that create a new poem or something.

What if you did that, but instead of blacking the text you white out the text and draw a comic over them so the chosen text becomes like dialog for the comic.

I always get Raymond Chandler and Philip Marlowe's names mixed up.

You wake up befuddled in a field, a man comes up to you and yells: "YOU ARE GOAT!"

I have a half-formed idea that pixel art and '80s synth sounds are extra-nostalgic because they are not just linked to their age by stylistic trends of the era, but are also intrinsically linked to the age because they reflect its technological capabilities.

Alien landing, the Vitbesk incident, pretty much verified now, - 

No, sorry, I was lying in the CW.

Maybe I always thought Lord of The Flies was nonsense because I read 'Paradijseiland' from the 'Jommeke' comic series as a child which is basically like Lord of the Flies except the kids basically build a utopian society. They start milking goats, they teach monkeys to build stuff for them,...

The most important thing to note about the Holy Roman Empire is that it was Holy, Roman and an Empire.

This is my personal mastodon instance. For now at least. Can I suggest you make an account over at ping.the-planet instead?
