What is 'a lot of work?'" (cw: late state capitalism) [1/4]
A burned out friend of mine said, after listing a huge list of accomplishments, "I have no concept of what is 'a lot of work'" - so I thought I'd help explain.
"a lot of work" is what happens when you stop and think about the past 3 years of your life and you realize a lot of them are a blur because you spent so much of them furiously working the problems of multiple conflicting deadlines that a lot of it looks the same.

second chance for Net Neutrality, US politics
"Important PSA for people living in the US: The FCC has been forced to reopen public comment on the Net Neutrality decision following a court case by #Mozilla. The influx of bots (suspiciously using the names of telecom subscribers) that were anti-Net Neutrality has caused this. The FCC is trying to bury this, and very few are reporting on it.
To (re)file your thoughts on the #FCC 's decision, go to https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express. Proceeding 17-108 is #NetNeutrality . This ends in March."

I love my city. ❤️
I've literally been singing this song all day long between pauses for past contemplation
That is some strong-ass magic I tell you what.
The full performance of the song "Ain't no sunshine" by Bill Withers is over 7 hours long.
Just over 2 minutes for the initial piece to play beginning to end, and then another 7ish hours as parts of the song echo around in your head and make you think about all the people in your life.
"Wanted: extra-terrestrial (or super-humanly smart) being to assist me in experiencing time in a more pleasant way than the horrendous lot we've been stuck with"
I'll bet you'd meet some really awesome friends in the replies to that post.
I would like a more pleasant way of experiencing time
As I am a 3 dimensional being who is only barely aware of my perception of the 4th dimension, I will need some extra-terrestrial assistance with even understanding how to describe more pleasant ways of experiencing time
Perhaps I could post a craigslist ad.
