Generic weird nerd, queer and trans, and blade witch. I'll share various bladesmithing and other projects, but this will probably be 50% cat photos. Very sober

Sense of humor removed to make space for more facts about 1980s Toyotas

Who on earth thought that ai model training should be better opt out, and not opt in. Ffs.

@quixoticgeek people who knew that if they made it opt in no one would

In hindsight walking into the hospital wearing a t-shirt that says "I'm only here because you broke something" is perhaps not the best choice...

I was thinking the other day how police forces in western societies are an example of scope creep. Which causes a lot of problems
They started as a way of recovering stolen property*, and additional duties have been added on over the last few hundred years

Having people trained to turn up to accidents and organise things is probably useful, but they don't need guns or powers to arrest people
Our current society needs people trained in de-escalating family violence situations, but that needs a specific set of values that police aren't chosen for
Likewise with detective stuff

If you listen to them police officers don't become cops to do a lot of this public service stuff and resent having to do it. I think people who are willing to do that stuff are discouraged because they don't want to be cops

Anyway, that's why the organisation needs to be scrapped and anything important reorganised

*I should explicitly note that the concept of property here often included slaves

I think it's really important for us trans women, especially us white ones, to learn about how womanhood has been used in other systems of oppression. The roles of white women in upholding white supremacy, richer women in class structures.
These are patterns of behaviour that I don't think we should recreate

We come to womanhood from a different place to cis women. This gives us a different perspective to build from in finding better ways to be women
I've heard multiple cis women talk about learning about womanhood from the trans women in their lives

Basically if you're a white trans woman look up some Black women's critiques of white womanhood and ask yourself if you really want to do that shit

    So we have sisyphean tasks and herculean tasks, which suggests there should be some others
    Cassandrean task: it'll obviously end in tears but no one believes you
    Pandorean task: it'll cause all sorts of problems but you do it anyway
    Sapphean task: sweet mother, you're too gay and cannot do it

    Day 1 of Meta's Threads federating with the fediverse, and so far, it's business as usual here.

    But maybe that's because we blocked them 6 months ago, when it became clear they were welcoming hate groups with open arms?

    I am genuinely confused why people who would block any other instance with bigots and nazis decide to make an exception for a fucking mega corp?

    Another bra free run today! 5.5km today!

    Now I just wish I could work out whether it's actually good for breasts or bad for them. The internet appears divided on the topic! I hate sports bras, and would love to keep avoiding them if it's not going to wreck my body

    Dangerous_beans,
    @Dangerous_beans@aus.social avatar

    @ada my view has always been it's ok if it's not uncomfortable. which means i did wear bras for serious cycling

    If something is rare, you don’t have to account for it in your theory. For instance, 98% of baryonic matter in the visible universe is hydrogen or helium. Therefore we can say that there are only two elements, and that “carbon-based lifeforms” are simply confused.

    Dangerous_beans,
    @Dangerous_beans@aus.social avatar

    @babadookspinoza intersex people are common enough that you don't get bio undergraduates to do karyotypes on themselves because you will have to provide counselling when some discover they aren't as simple as they thought. So if it's affecting bio lab design it must be reasonably important

    Watching the @TechConnectify video about heating sizing. The thing I find hardest to understand tho is the idea of measuring heat pumps in tons.

    What's wrong with measuring them in kW?

    Dangerous_beans,
    @Dangerous_beans@aus.social avatar

    @quixoticgeek one ton is 1000kg, conversion of energy to mass at rest is MC^2, so that's like 90 petajoules? Not, that can't be right, must be a weird imperial unit
