I’m no less real than the fucking beef patty in your bed and believe whatever you want to see in my app doesn't include any user tracking.

Haven't had a lot to say lately. I guess I'm not really In a sharing mood. 🤷‍♂️

Head so deep in stuff. I need a permanent vacation or something. 😵

@dragfyre You give them the flower. They thank you and take a bite.

@xyzzy is name-dropping like it wants venture capital or something.

I just remembered a that may be relevant to your interests, fediversians.

I had a dream that @Fairphone sent me and everyone I know a free Fairphone 3 as a promotional gift, you know, to get buzz going. Except the phones they sent us were big red flip-phones made out of this light, rough plastic like the kind you'd expect a kid's play structure to be made of.

I was still pretty impressed with mine because IIRC it still worked well, and you know, ethical sourcing and all that. 😎

question for you all: Does anyone still travel internationally by passenger boat (i.e. not on cruises)? I'm thinking of the kind of ocean-liner traffic that was so common around the turn of the 20th century.

On fait des villes de plus en plus belles, entourées de my butt, and that is all right.

You should never allow the many dark thoughts and dark forces in the world today to weigh on your mind or depress you. The world is very black at present, and humanity in a very degraded condition spiritually. We must accept this fact, but not allow it to influence us. #inspiration #quotes #bahai

My brother who teaches English in Japan has been making teaching materials so the kids can learn how British people celebrate Christmas.
I think this is a work of deadpan comic genius.

Looks like it's time for @xyzzy to learn how to "use" things.

TBH I wonder if fediverse.space just takes snapshots at intervals, in which it only looks at, say, the last 40 toots on the instance timeline; if the timeline is moving too quickly, it never sees the rest of the toots. That's a very technically reasonable way to design the app, but it has the potential to give an incomplete picture of an instance's true connections.

Checking out Sandwich's profile page on fediverse.space:

I don't get why the instance appears to be so isolated. In the "neighbours" tab, for instance, I would expect to see some of the instances of people I've mentioned recently. As an example, I was chatting with someone on sunbeam.city a few weeks ago, but that instance isn't listed there. So what gives? 🤔
