Trans Testicular Cancer Awareness 

Trans people who have testicles can get testicular cancer even if they've been on estrogen and t-blockers for years. I have personally known two trans women who have had testicular cancer. Don't stop being vigilant just because you've been on HRT.

GRS Warning, Medical Malpractice 

I've seen Dr. Rumer's careless disregard for her patients up close, but I won't elaborate here. If you want details on how Dr. Rumer has harmed many many people who trusted her to help them, then read this article:

Stop using "split personalities" as a movie monster! We're real people! I'm not a monster!

Bijoux, a 20 years old cameroonian trans woman, needs funds to be able to escape her country where she could be sentenced up to 5 years in prison for "homosexuality", she’s 7000€ away from her goal, consider sharing and helping out if you can: gofundme.com/f/solidarit-secou

@bunny_jane, this Dynasoar/Titan II came up on my YouTube feed.

The person who built it said they went with a low power motor so the lifting body gilder wouldn't shred during boost.

With a fairing around the glider, I could use a bigger motor and get some some altitude before deployment.

brazilian Portuguese sossegado = relaxed, calm, chillin'.

in casual/street Portuguese unstressed vowels often rise, giving sussegado.

and ofc you abbreviate it like all languages, to sussa, sussi.

so every time y'all say anything is "sus", this is what I think you're saying

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.

cleaned the rubber feet on the bottom of this keyboard for the first time in years and got surprised when it didn't move as much as it used to

In physics, the scallop theorem describes how perfectly time-symmetrical motion results in 0 displacement, if the fluid is highly viscous. Scallops move by opening to pull water in and closing to push it out the rear. If they opened as fast as they closed, they'd rock back and forth. Instead they vary the frequency of closure to control their speed! This principle is used for engineering where one deg of freedom is needed to generate net forward displacement. #clamfacts

none of these problems can be solved by using computers differently, if you want to stop tech companies from controlling your brain you have to destroy the tech companies and you can"t do that with a computer unless you"re a guy from hackers 1995

You do it with like, old fashioned stuff. Ifyaknowwhatimean

Today I Learned: Japanese submarines attacked Oregon and California during WWII. For most of my life I thought the only attacks on the U.S. mainland during WWII were the balloon bombs that Japan sent over.

Actually adding onto that, that's what I feel the difference between fedi and twitter is

It's okay for my timeline to not have infinite content in it

It's okay if I've read it all and close the app, that's IDEAL actually

This discord also really drove home to me that if you make a discord server for something, it's totally okay to not add a thousand off topic channels. Every server doesn't need a food or literature channel. And almost no server needs a vent channel.

What do we do when there's no Blaseball?

We don't use the server. We come back when the thing the server is about is back and we talk about it. And it's a LOT nicer as a result. Nobody is looking to fill the empty space.
