I'm at that phase of RPG playing where I'm super invested in remaking my character over and over and I'm like "wwwwwhhhyyyyyyyy can't I decide"
A brief thought: I think we need to take a long step back from "irony" culture.
There's a pattern I see repeatedly where people immersed in "irony" seem to not comprehend that other people actually believe what they're saying, because "irony" dictates that THEY don't believe anything they're saying. It's all a joke; it's just "for the lulz", to score laughs and Internet Points.
Being earnest is a completely foreign concept, and so they assume NOBODY is earnest.

Very good thread about what people are really saying when they ask you why you make your work so "political." https://twitter.com/seananmcguire/status/953799851971522560

Friends! Remember, the “report” feature is there for you. Only your admins will see it (on the Shop that’s me and @Annalee), and we take reports seriously.
Don’t worry about over-reporting! If something makes you uncomfortable, report it! It’s literally our job here to make the next-level decision, and “I don’t want to overwhelm the admins” shouldn’t factor into your choice.
We’ll let you know if it’s overwhelming. Until then, report with vigor.

So after receiving some good feedback, I'm going to go with Windows. Not because it's the best OS, but because it's the one most programs support.

Hey Mastodon. It has come to my intention that some of you know things about computers. My computer's primary SSD crashed and I need to replace it. I've already picked out the SSD, but I'm going to need to pick out an OS.
My question: should I go Windows or Linux? I understand you can install Steam on both now without much difficulty. I was looking at Ubuntu and it doesn't seem too hard to comprehend. I have some experience with programming and console commands in case I get stuck.
Marcus Aurelius, one of the most powerful people in the world, had trouble getting out of bed.
It's human, universal, - you're not alone. 😊
>At dawn, when you have trouble getting out of bed, tell yourself: “I have to go to work — as a human being. What do I have to complain of, if I’m going to do what I was born for — the things I was brought into the world to do? Or is this what I was created for? To huddle under the blankets and stay warm?”
- Meditations, Marcus Aurelius
Mastodon needs some visual thing that a toot is a response to another.
And you may find yourself
Behind the controls of a large mech
And you may find yourself in a beautiful space suit
With a beautiful copilot
And you may ask yourself, well
How did I get here?
