Wait, there's been more than one season of #FLCL since 2018. How am I only learning this now?

Why is it taking like eighty cops to pull someone over in front of our building?
in reply to Jonathan Lamothe

It's ridiculous isn't it? It's like every traffic stop requires a swat team.
in reply to Spacegoat

@Spacegoat From what I overheard it sounds like it was a drug bust. They hauled the driver away and eventually towed the car after a bunch of them turned it inside out.


We have to order @Benny's food from the vet because he's on a prescription diet. Tried using their on-line ordering option. We ordered his food a week ago. It just arrived this morning.

We just got tracking now.

Thanks. That's helpful.



@wing Been meaning to give Jellyfin a go ever since you and Hex mentioned it. Finally got around to it. You'll be happy to know that the first video I tested it with was, in fact, Big Buck Bunny.

I sell products ready-assembled, and do-it-yourself kits for building the same products. Some of my customers buy the kits because they really like building kits, and that's great.

But others buy the kits because they think they're entitled to the finished product at a lower price, and they begrudge every second of effort they must put into building the kit. Those people really exist and they are the market for tools that purport to save "the value of your time."

in reply to Matthew Skala

@Matthew Skala Yeah, that's valid. If you're doing it to save money - that's fine.

But this is a criticism of the *argument*, not the sale. People can and should sell preassembled things, kits, and more! Not everyone wants to build! But if someone is building on purpose, don't tell them to value their time.

programming languages are actually a massive distraction from the main job of a programmer, which is to weep

STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!!!

A trailer for the Sierra On-Line documentary has just dropped!

It features both Ken and Roberta Williams – the founders of the most important PC gaming company ever. Certainly, it was the most influential American gaming company after Atari.

Roberta Williams was a huge influence on me and millions of children who primarily gamed on PCs. She brought us King’s Quest, Laura Bow, Phantasmagoria, and a host of beautiful PC gaming classics. To me, she was as good of a game designer as Shigeru Miyamoto.

I wish Sierra still existed. I miss the magic that they created.

I have come dangerously close to allowing myself to run out of coffee.

This will not do.




There seem to have been a lot of extreme weather warnings for my area recently. It's almost like the climate is changing or something.

Not Everyone Has an Inner Voice Streaming Through Their Head

The extent to which people experience “inner speech” varies greatly, and the differences matter for performing certain cognitive tasks

"Past research suggests inner speech is key in self-regulation and executive functioning, like task-switching, memory and decision-making."

I really, really wish my inner speech would slow down & even switch off occasionally.

I can’t do podcasts unless I’m doing something else at the same time, such as on my exercise machine or doing a sudoku which occupies a different part of my brain, or driving. #ADHD

in reply to Susan60

@Susan60 mine is usually only active when I'm doing something with a strong connection to a spoken language (although not when I'm programming even when there are English words in the code)

But sometimes I'm trying to go to sleep and my inner speech starts up and gets faster and faster until it's an unintelligible garble.

in reply to I Love Chai ☕️

@I Love Chai ☕️ Until about my 30s, I always thought the the whole "inner voice" thing was a literary and cinematic technique used to approximate a person's thought process for narrative purposes.

I'd always seen language as an inconvenient thing I needed to use to in order to serialize my thoughts in a manner that they could actually be communicated to another person, not a natural way of thinking in and of itself. That realization blew my mind.

So a new job opportunity didn't pan out because it caused me a meltdown and a depressive episode the likes of which I haven't felt since the last worst day of my life.

This means I will be trying to find work that doesn't trigger all my mental health problems at once, which is going to be so so much harder. I am disabled and unqualified for most things.

It would save me if I started getting sales more regularly than once every couple months. If you (yes, you!) would be interested in buying a crocheted *anything,* whether I have it in my store or not, please hit me up!!! I will do requests!!! I can also do embroidery!! I can embroider a penis if you want!!!

Please boost my posts and give me a follow and think about if you'd like to buy something. I'm feeling... so bad right now. So so bad. So so so bad.

Can anyone in Waterloo region recommend a place (such as a coffee shop) where one can just sit down with a book for a while? I don't mind if I have to buy a coffee or something. Just looking for a change of scenery.

There's always the library, but the nearest one to me is in a high school, and I feel weird about loitering around there.

I like Stockyards Coffee in Catalyst 137 (Glasgow near Belmont). There’s some other seating around the building in addition to the coffee shop

No friend, another person who won't debate you because you're freaking exhausting and I just can't be bothered... but you keep telling yourself that.

while we've managed to scrimp and save to make it to kitsune tails' release day, releasing august 1st means we won't see any money for almost 2 months until its the end of september

our other games are currently on sale on itch at https://eniko.itch.io/ and steam at https://store.steampowered.com/bundle/15673/Kitsune_Games_Complete_Pack/ and buying some or all of them would help tremendously

EDIT: just for clarity this is a "we're worried about making rent" situation and not "oh no the business' coffers are looking a little bit empty"

:boostRequest: could you please give me a boost? I'm begging you. :boostRequest:​​ 🥺

could you help a black trans au/adhd plural gal out?

another month and more expenses. I still need to cover my bills, debts and trying to save something to save me from my imminently crumbling living situation if worst comes to be.

since I'll be mostly in vacation from college this month I'll be trying to put some projects in action so that I can try and get some money coming in.

my father is already planning on throwing all the living expenses onto me and my siblings and that alone would add another fucking 200 USD when I don't have any fucking income rn 🙃

every donation helps immensely and so does every boost.

please help a gal out 🥺🥺
