You know what I miss about the Old Web?
Background colors that were not PURE SCREAMING WHITE. Every single commercially-owned site is white, white, white. White social media background blends into white news site background, nothing ever feels like it has a fundamental sense of *place* beyond a banner and a "please turn off your adblocker" popup.
For all you who are still addicted to PoGo, I’d like to interject for just one minute Show more
What you’re referring to as Pokémon, are in fact Ingress/Pokémon, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, #Pokémon plus Go. Pokémon are not game unto themselves, but rather another component of a fully functioning Game Freak franchise made useful by the #Nintendo corporation, Niantic #geolocation databases, and pocket monsters comprising a full video game franchise as defined by Hillary Clinton and John Hanke.
Many Pokémon trainers run a modified version of the Ingress system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of #Ingress which is widely used today is often called “Go”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the same geolocation system also developed by #Niantic.
There really are Pokémon, and these trainers are catching them all, but it is just a part of the system they use. Pokémon are the characters: the creatures and species that you catch in your #pokéballs. The characters are an essential part of any franchise, but useless by themselves; they can only function in the context of a complete #AR experience. Pokémon are normally used in combination with the Ingress portal database: the whole system is basically Pokémon with Go added, or Ingress/Pokémon. All the so-called “Pokémon” trainers are really agents of Ingress/Pokémon.
Christmas/Capitalism follow-up Show more
The philosophy is an essential part of a revolution, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete proletarian revolution. Marxism is normally used in combination with the Leninist revolution: the whole society is basically a Leninist revolution with Marxism added, or Marxism-Leninism. All the so-called Communist societies are really distributions of Marxism-Leninism!
…it's really Crapitalism with Christmas added Show more
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you are referring to as Christmas, is in fact, Money/Christmas, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Money plus Christmas. Christmas is not a #holiday unto itself, but rather another expensive component of a fully corporate market system made possible by sales, consumer bias and vital advertising components comprising a full revenue stream as defined by market share. Many consumers spend a huge amount of money every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of #capitalism which is used today is often called "Christmas", and many of it's users are not aware that it is basically the free market system, developed by the Coca-Cola Company. There really is a Christmas, and these people are celebrating it, but it is just a part of the market they shop in. #Christmas is the reason: the part in the system that allocates the consumer's resources to the other consumers that also #shop. Christmas is an essential part of free market capitalism, but is useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a free market. Christmas is normally used in conjunction with the free market system: the whole system is basically #money with Christmas added, or Money/Christmas. All the so called "Christmas" celebrations are really celebrations of Money/Christmas
Excerpts from a conversation about chemistry (1/3) Show more
"I love that there was this idea in the 20th century to weaponize literally anything and everything.
and there is an entire section of chemicals that even those crazy fuckers couldn't possibly do anything with. you do not fuck with chemistry."
"Lots of people have fucked with chemistry, but they've generally found that it fucks right back and likes to be on top."
"Do not meddle in the affairs of chemists, for they have access to fluorine."

Not lewd but indulgent; "shitpost" implies funny so not that but anyways Show more
Hi, I'm your friend's cute mom; young and pretty in a way that made you just a bit frustrated she saw you as a kid. Horn-rimmed glasses for someone three times her age, modest clothes that nonetheless leave you aware of the presence of hips and their failure to lie. Occasionally makes jokes and winks at you that really leave you off-kilter wondering what she was trying to imply; the truth is she's noticed you have a little crush and she thinks you're adorable when you get flustered.

I wonder what archaeologists of the future might say of our peculiar decorations, honoring our artificial gods that streak across the sky
I was hoping to get at least one person to tell me I was being delusional with my long post last night or at least say the idea sounded intriguing but impractical.
