Before the rise of industry, it was normal for people to sleep in two phases each night.

People had no set bedtimes. Sleeping was determined by whether or not there were things to do. Most people would have a first and second sleep, with a couple of hours awake inbetween. This is probably the way humans are supposed to sleep.

Modern schedules don't really let us do that. Perhaps we should think about changing that.

A couple things I saw and thought "Mastodon will love this":

- Alias, a 3D-printed "parasite" that sits on top of your Amazon Echo or Google Home, feeding white noise into its mic until you say the wake word: bjoernkarmann.dk/project_alias

- The adminbook, a wonderfully ugly design for the ideal sysadmin notebook: m.habr.com/en/post/437912/

@eightbitsamurai Squall is too much of a painslut for Quistis. Whip or not, she can't stomp on Squall's heart like Rinoa can.

@starbreaker In a word: Scabs. People are so brainwashed that unions are bad that they mostly reject them out of hand, which makes organizing impossible.

Even if an artists union did form, we'd need a critical mass of independent artists to join it and for people to NOT be scabs and take non-union jobs, which won't happen until it's accepted knowledge that unions are a force for good and that life is better in a union.

Philanthropy is just a way of promoting your personal opinions without any public oversight.

♲ @dickmandrake@elekk.xyz: The Girl Scouts of Western Washington were offered $100,000 on the condition that the donation "will not be used to support transgender girls".

They sent the money back, held a fundraising campaign, and raised $300,000. #ForEVERYGirl

Why is it only the screenwriters who have an effective ? Shouldn't all writers have a union? Shouldn't all artists, musicians, etc. be part of union?

@twovoyagers Not always, but the fundies tend to show up on a schedule.

@twovoyagers I'm talking about showing up at your front door, not at church. :)

@Fellas is Maybe that's why I haven't managed to write much Iately. I'm not getting enough vitamin D.

@PaulFerence Lynx is cross-platform, and any site that doesn't work in Lynx probably won't pass any other tests.

There's also the WAVE extension.

@twovoyagers I wish, but you just know that Xtians in the US would challenge any such ban on First Amendment grounds.

If you want Xtians to accept that their freedom of religion ends where your freedom from religion begins, the law isn't going to help you.

You could try showing up naked with a carving knife and saying something like, "Ah, a suitable sacrifice! Baal has provided for his faithful!" It works for me.
