I think I would have gone the opposite way about quotoots - no plain boost. It's a context rip to have to boost something seperately from explaining why I think it's worth reading, or adding overlooked cw, or other context. But maybe link-as-quotoot is a better prospect since it puts in.verse content on a level with out.verse content.

You made it this far. You may as well go the distance.

I'm terrible at social media.

That's because I'm terrible at social, period. 😬

I'm good at typing and diction though. Ha HA!

As we welcome the presidents to the summit in Helsinki, we @hsfi want to remind them of the importance of free press. 300 billboards on the routes from the airport to the summit are filled with news headlines regarding presidents’ attitude towards the pressfreedom. t.co/KmYJtLyeNE twitter.com/KaiusNiemi/status/

What in the fucking fuckity fuck is he even saying, you guys

‘We would make a great deal with the United Kingdom because they have product that we like,” Trump said. “I mean they have a lot of great product. They make phenomenal things, you know, and you have different names – you can say ‘England’, you can say ‘UK’, you can say ‘United Kingdom’ … the fact is you make great product, you make great things. Even your farm product is so fantastic.”

You know the distance between nightmare and dream. It's two breaths, or one song.

This is a system of dreams.

A system of wires.

The {spiders, snakes, ebola carrying rodents, large angry wildlife, poison plants, smog, huge wildfires, heatwaves} aren't trying to kill me on a semi-regular basis. (We didn't even really worry about the bubonic plague squirrels.) Also edible stuff grows basically everywhere. And rain falls from the sky. Even the mold and yeast are friendlier. Germany feels like a forest garden paradise after the southwestern USA. One engineered over thousands of years for human comfort.

My relationship to my computer has fundamentally changed since I uninstalled qubes. I feel, for the first time since I got it, like giving it a name.

The last time I built a pc was in 2012 and tbh I don’t feel the rush to do so soon. There is no compelling reason for me to spend money upgrading from 16G of ram and an ssd

TFW you end up with a ~/mybin for your own scripts because too many software packages have cluttered up your ~/bin.
