Me: I don’t understand why anyone eats the frozen food at Trader Joe’s

Also me: *makes a meal from frozen foods from Japan, China, India and Korea’

Culturally relevant convenience food that hits your flavor profile is important (I don’t love the Chinese or Thai stuff at TJ’s, it just tastes weird to me)

@skinnylatte Agree on the Thai stuff, but we do load up on the TJs Indian food.

We also get the orange chicken, but the connection to Chinese food is pretty tenuous ;)

People shaming others to vote and saying we mustn't say anything bad about Biden/DNC makes more sense when they reveal that they think the problem is the voters, not the very, very rigged system we are forced to submit to

johnmark,

@inquiline Nope. I just don't want us to descend into theocratic authoritarianism. And yeah, I expect you to do whatever is necessary to prevent that.

As we do some last packing away of the house clutter into the garage before the realtor photographer arrives, and thinking to our move out of Portland after 12 years, I think back to when my daughter was a small child here and whenever she drew our house she included gray rain clouds above instead of sun. 😂 #pdx

Asked a co-worker a question and she touched my screen 4 times. I'm not counting or anything, but 4 times. 4. It doesn't bother me at all though, it's just that it was 4 times. Anyway, I'm just gonna forget about the 4 times she touched my screen. No big deal. It's not like it was 5 times. It was 4

@patrickworld Good thing you're not counting ;)

Also eww: that would totally bother me, too.

No, society has not lots its mornings; one sector of it has. To condemn us all to the same damnation is as bad a framing as polarization: each normalizes the extremists.

I have a soft spot for Libertarians even though I shouldn't and they don't deserve it. When I was a kid I had a weird neighbor who was always giving me Libertarian books... I wish I still had some of them they were WILD. He was a thorn in the side of the local, school board as well insisting that if they had an event at the school that involved politics Libertarians had to be included.

And in defense of the guy, he was about as likable and earnest as a Libertarian could be.

@richpuchalsky @futurebird @angst_ridden Real people are going to suffer under Trump, and you're enabling that. What does that make you?

Also I'm not voting for Biden, I'm voting for a coalition of voters represented by Biden.

johnmark,
@johnmark@freeradical.zone avatar

@richpuchalsky @futurebird @angst_ridden Because one of the coalitions has proved receptive to the Palestinian cause. Policy takes years to unwind, and we've been staunch Israel allies for decades now. No one is going to unwind that in the time span that you want. We don't have solid allies in the region, and abandoning Israel would mean we're left with zero. And may I remind you that it was the previous president who moved the embassy to Jerusalem, stoking more unrest.

johnmark,
@johnmark@freeradical.zone avatar

@richpuchalsky @futurebird @angst_ridden So we're in the unenviable position of trying to convince Israel to be less bad.

If you don't see a clear difference in those positions then I don't know what to tell you.

johnmark,
@johnmark@freeradical.zone avatar

@salad_bar_breath @richpuchalsky @futurebird @angst_ridden I and the rest of the Democratic coalition want to protect the right of trans people. Full stop.

I'm sorry, but we will not be able to put together a better coalition in time for this election.

No matter what happens, I will always fight for your right to health care and to thrive.

Ane I will shame people - those who brought us Bush (Nader supporters) and Trump (Bernie supporters) and Biden (Bernie supporters, again)

On the bright side: time for a Long John Silver's rebirth! Ahoy!

Watching Linux distros (and yes, it is usually Debian packagers who act the most sanctimonious) shoot themselves in the face and then insult upstream AND the users of a popular package under the delusion that only the distro's self-declared experts are capable of making decisions is always a good reminder as to why you will never be able to waterboard me into using Linux as my primary desktop. Very sorry this is happening Team KeePassXC. https://fosstodon.org/@keepassxc/112417353193348720

@film_girl You do realize that all software engineering come with drama right? It's just in this case the dirty laundry is aired for the entire world to see.

I would love to be a fly on the wall for software release retrospectives, the "blameful post-mortem"

    I was thinking about how I used to go backpacking with my mum and she was always adventurous and fun. One time we went to Chiang Rai together, she hung out with so many hippies and then when I was going to France shortly after she was like ‘oh I got their email you should email them’ and then I ended up staying in France with random people my mum talked to.

    It tickles me that not everyone’s mums are like that

    @zeruch @kevbob Although I will say that growing up, these things were forbidden, so when I did have them - at other people's houses lol - I enjoyed them immensely.
