I also love tabletop games, especially D&D and MtG. I'm looking forward to learning what Mastodon is all about!
I don't think I know a single other person who even knows what the Home and End keys on a keyboard do, but I would be a much slower writer without them!
this David Brooks column hand-wringing over the state of American-European relations reads like Baby's First Cryptofascist Screed https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/16/opinion/trump-nato-european-union-history.html
if you'd really like to brighten up your Monday, do an image search for animated gifs of "dancing skeleton"
I dislike the trend of including parenthetical clauses at the end of a sentence (this distracts me and is "wrong"). You can create another sentence fully enclosed by parentheses. (Usually, that's what you should do!)

Has anyone created a self-hosted email service that's even half as nice as Gmail? If not, why not? It seems like such an obvious, easy niche to fill, but I sure don't know of anything.

happy fourth of July here is a easy to read timeline of how y'all have fucked in Central America and made my family poor and stuff
Problem 0 with the United States is the general acceptance that the Constitution basically got everything right and our societal ills are caused by our inability to properly interpret it. It's sort of similar to theology.
I'm just a user, not a dev, but after spending only like a month on Mastodon I've already learned about half a dozen really exciting apps and websites currently in development that I otherwise would've had no idea existed.
