I LOVE it if you do that... over there. But, please go where the wind won't carry that smell back to me.
My parents did that, it's nostalgic like cookies for the half second before I realize what I'm smelling. Then the after-smell of lightly roasted skunk confirms it.
But, but, I won't shame you for doing it... Except to my neighbor: "I can't escape your cheap-ass, skunk-weed stench."
That's what I yell out my window. If you heard me, I'm serious, smoke better shit.
Me: Birdsite vs Here
I am there and here because people I want to follow are in both places. I was here before Wil Wheaton was persuaded off of the platform. I've been there since 2008.
I use the same client for both, I see both timelines co-mingled in post-date order.
Partly, I'm here because I believe in the overall mission of decentralized microblog services. Mostly, I'm here because I have friends that are much more comfortable here, where code of conduct is taken seriously.
@vkc I wonder what the age breakdown of this is. I'm 48, and in the do minority in votes so far, et-see.
@determinerik One warning: some folk really would rather not be boosted, so please check the user profile for requests before doing it.
I'm not going to preach about NFTs, but watch this (admittedly US-centric) video about legal issues around them both for consumers & creators.
It's long (46m) but good for anyone who is thinking about getting on NFT 🚂.

My take on NFTs. New video up on Nebula and YouTube (Nebula has an exclusive companion video all about NFTs for artists and creators!)
@WanderingBeekeeper Yeah, but it's sooooo tiring to need to explain to someone who thinks I'm being insensitive.
@vogon No, you'll have to figure out which non compatible sub-variant of USB-C works for each device, even for just charging.
@lawremipsum I feel this is deeply true for anything that would be a content originating internet server. The domestic internet is very anti-server, and it makes me sad.
@lawremipsum At the time, I worked in the WF, and the skyway commute was perfect. I miss that place to this day.
