@AesAthena @katwylder No need to DM; it's on-topic.

100% flour, 70-75% water. 1/4 tsp dry yeast and 1 tsp salt per 10 oz flour.
Mix dry, add water. Mix just until it comes together as one messy lump, cover and let rise for 12-18 hours. Bake as you like; it works for a loaf or a boule. I recommend baking in a Dutch oven; it helps the crust.

Water, yeast, and salt amounts are all flexible.

Let's talk about electromagnetic interference and trunked radio systems, often used by police, fire, and EMS. Unfortunately, some of these systems have critical flaws.

No particular reason to be talking about this now, of course, but I'm bored.

today, the police ran over a semi-peaceful crowd (facebook.com/juliacaldwell1/po) and maced the city council (see below)

mind you these were peaceful.

after this i dont wanna hear any shit from you lib guys gatekeeping how protests work, especially when youre not in it to begin with. no matter if youre peaceful or not, they will harm you and possibly kill you. this is not the fucking time for that shit.

no justice, no peace. fucking remember that until its etched into your brain

It's still somehow people who can only kick in a couple of bucks coming together and people who work tech jobs going uhhhh it should be fine. I hope you get your fucking teeth kicked in and I hope I'm the one who gets to do it.

leftism on mastodon is fucking pathetic. all talk, with the substance of air in a box. If you’ve got time and energy to whine about how people aren’t hiding their words about racism, consider instead:

going out and protesting yourself if you can

donating if you can

shutting the fuck up and providing visibility for others if the above two options are unavailable to you

there are a lot of relatively well-meaning white people on this website that should probably just shut the fuck up right now. Please realize that I’m saying it nicely this time, I’m not sure how much longer that’ll last

I’m not saying that caring more about CWing racism than the racism itself carries the same energy as caring more about a building getting looted, I’m just saying that caring more about CWing racism than the racism itself carries the same energy as caring more about a building getting looted

It's no masterpiece (what ever is?), but it takes a clearly-rushed JRPG riddled with plot holes and poorly-thought-out systems, where nearly all the NPCS are total nonentities, and turns it into something with a story and people you can care about, all while staying close enough to the original to not need to actually *cut* anything.

I really have no idea how to properly express how I feel about this game. The game itself is not great. In fact, it's quite bad. But the idea at the root of it, that the world will end, you have to write a new world to replace it (magic book), your changes show up in the game... that's excellent, and then this LP is something else entirely. It's like fanfic, but even more closely tied to the original in some ways, weaving new narrative and plot point between existing screenshots and dialogue.

Not re: current events, maybe you'll find it cheering.

Avalon Code. DS game, interesting idea, poor execution. There's a really good LP of it over at lparchive.org/Avalon-Code/ , though – very interesting bit of writing, like fanfic but not. He takes the game and supplements with his own writing to make it make more sense, and put some personality in the characters.

And then? He reviews the game, in the form of an ~800 word *Cat in the Hat* parody. It's a good one, too! lparchive.org/Avalon-Code/Upda

Have had an unusual frequency of flying dreams lately. General sensation is more like gliding plus magic wind? Like unzipping a jacket into a headwind, but with more up. Not the usual way flying dreams go for me, which is more like run, jump, and don't come down.

this is loudly touted by all promotional materials

there are, in fact, classes scheduled in those hours
