How I feel about 90% of the time on Mastodon, but thanks for letting me hang out

everybody who's replied to this toot has made me laugh out loud so i hope you all don't mind if i go on a mass following spree (if i don't already follow you)

@trappleton there was a good tweet about this a while back along the lines of “maybe Obi Wan Kenobi is just a racist old white guy”

"you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy"

ok but like... it was just... a bar?? sure a murder or two happened there but there's a lot worse places in the galaxy. there's a moon-sized genocide machine called "the death star" for chrissakes

aaaa when i said "i wish vampires were real" i just meant the undead edgelords from white wolf's World of Darkness, i didn't want to live in a world clutched firmly in the tight grip of bloodsucking capitalists, aaaaaa

I abandoned religion a very long time ago, but I can't help but despise Jesus Christ Superstar for its theological inaccuracy. Also for its terrible music and book, but mostly the first thing.

strongly held opinion on a subject no one cares about: Rappan Athuk has no business whatsoever calling itself "The Granddaddy of All Megadungeons" if it was originally released in 2000 for D&D 3e

You should have to personally tell your neighbors and put a sign in your yard if you have one of those video doorbells, or any other kind of surveillance equipment

@OldBrushNewPaper I was surprised to see that I wasn't already following you! Must've been because we share the same Mastodon instance. Well, hello, you're great, hope you don't mind a follow!

criticizing consumerism without critiquing capitalism feels so hollow to me because it's just victim blaming.

I have to live in this system where I'm exploited and deprived of things everyone should have, and someone's gonna give me shit for wanting nice stuff now and then? Fuck off.

I don't really post memes but this is pretty dang good

This paper (via @petethomas) was already fabulous just on the face of it, but it contains this sentence: "Additionally, airships have been considered to be designed to be unmanned to reduce risks of fatalities, especially if the airship uses hydrogen for buoyancy."

Now I really REALLY want to write an adventure module where the players have to pull off a heist on an unmanned airship and crucially must maintain a sparkless environment

any time Prince Philip takes an interest in literally anything on The Crown, you know something monumentally embarrassing is going to happen. dude managed to engineer like four social faux pas out of the MOON LANDING

weird quirk: once I ran a marathon, like, the 26.2-mile race. Before that, people would sometimes say, "Oh yeah, I ran a race too." After that, they say, "Oh yeah, I ran a 3-mile marathon one time." It really stuffs my tailpipe!!
