Mrs. IPX put her foot down about my buying a halberd. I can have one if I forego buying a vintage moped next year.

Which kinda bites, as I was planning to use the two together.

Maybe I can get away with a Scythian bow..?

The feeling when you realize BGP, which runs connections between most(?) internet backbones, is basically secured only by handshake agreements between friendly neighbors and it's only now, after operating this way for like 40 years, that this is beginning to break down.

The *entire internet* operates this way. The connections between well-intentioned hunams can be incredibly resilient.

Sleep. Dream. Wake.

Don't forget the last one or you'll be trapped in a cycle of unreality and hyperreality moving to ever and ever higher levels of existence. Mere matter has no chance against the explosive force of connotations that explode through the world with ever utterance of purple prose. And further on and further on, until your attempt to lift a pebble is crushed beneath the weight of everything a pebble could mean. And further on, and further on…

medieval Islamic philosophy is awesome because they were just constantly dunking on each other, al-ghazali wrote a book called "the incoherence of the philosophers" against avicennian philosophy, and then ibn rushd, an avicennian, wrote a book called "the incoherence of the incoherence of the philosophers" and there's just no way you're coming back from an own like that

I should really just use my SDF Mastodon account full time. It's much more relaxing than octodon.social .

"If you had to recommend someone play 5 games to really get a feel for you/your tastes, what five would you pick?"

Hmmm.

1) Star Control 2 - who DOESN'T want to adventure through space?
2) X-Com Apocalypse - strategy and base building goodness
3) Chrono Trigger - who DOESN'T want to adventure through time?
4) Master of Orion - If I ruled the universe, I would...
5) Subnautica - Life is an adventure!

I love how my credit card’s website asks me to give them my income to help them serve me better. How about you financial institutions serve me better by telling me how much you’re ripping me off.

Just a quick thanks to all of you who CW your politics. It really does help my mental health!

'But there is also a loss of freedom which results from the unchecked competitive behaviour of other people. Just as auction prices are often set by people who overbid, social norms are often driven by people who care more than everyone else. Social media serves to make this effect worse, since you are continually exposed to the edited highlights of everyone else’s life.'

I occasionally want to make an IF where you play as the computer controlling a happy, prosperous society.

Your goal is to prevent Captain Kirk from blowing you up and throwing the people you care for into centuries of famine, starvation, and war.
