Looking for someone to fill apartment Show more
If anyone's in the general area of Boston looking for housing soon, I'm in a 4-bedroom apartment with two people moving out in March. East Cambridge, short walk to Kendall and the Green Line, the two of us who are staying mostly keep to ourselves.
Laundry in the basement, rent is under $1k per person per month, DM if interested.
introducing: me Show more
Well, an #introduction since they seem to be going around.
I'm Qwerty, and yes there are people who call me that in meatspace. I like to say I collect (creative) hobbies but honestly I haven't been able to stick to one yet for long enough to be competent. I work in software and run on music; I #cook and #bake and read and occasionally fumble in the direction of #drawing or #gamedev, and I drink almost exclusively tea.

i would very much like programmers to stop thinking of themselves as scientists or engineers and start thinking of themselves as artisans or craftspeople

The rich already have Basic Minimum Income: it is called "trust fund stipends."
The rich do not believe they need to earn their wealth. If they did, they would fight to raise inheritance taxes, not lower them.
This isn't new. This is the way money has always worked. The rich are given wealth without effort.
This is so much the case that you can almost say that if you need to expend effort for your money you're upper-middle class at best, and not actually wealthy.
I've been reading A Practical Guide to Evil lately and I can't think of anything in /ages/ that's had me cackling and clapping this much, practically every update. This is good stuff.
Gaysper and Milkshake Duck are opposites that my #ActuallyAutistic brain is having trouble reconciling.
They both involve facists making pretty things. In one, you have to stop loving it because of who the creator is; in the other, you have to start loving it to spite the creator.
How do you tell the difference?
(Gaysper, for reference: https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2019/04/30/far-right-party-vox-posts-anti-lgbt-gay-ghost-emoji-backfires/ a Spanish far-right party tried to convince people that gays are scary but the symbol they chose turned out really cute)
#TIL that there's one other Pokémon theme that's lasted almost as long as the Hall of Fame theme and the main theme (and with less change than the latter): The "you are using peripheral hardware other than multiplayer" theme.

Another digital #drawing/#painting. I like this one better than the last, I think. Still shakier than I'd like but it works a bit better?

Sorry folks but Buttigieg is bad.
Michael extracts meter and rhyme from texts like the script to Pokemon Red to find poetry in arbitrary places. Originally meant for limericks which turned out to be really hard but check out these from dril #wordHack
food mention/recipe, language question Show more
There is a thing that I cook a lot, and I don't know what it's called.
- carmelize onions in oil in a tall saucepan or wide pot
- add Soy Vey and small chunks of tofu or meat
- add mix of chopped bell and spicy peppers
- add spices, vinegar
All that was "stirring occasionally" and over medium to low heat. Serve over rice. It's not stir-fry but it's not anything else either.
