What do you call friends you like to eat with?

Taste buds.

This is what my vegan lunch looked like before I destroyed it with my face. A vegan burger with a house-made black bean patty. I’m not gluten-free, but those onion rings are. And they were hella good.

“Good luck with your mixed signals. I don’t even understand the direct ones.”

I don’t know who said this, but I feel seen.

I’m curious if y’all rage when you stub your toe or slam a limb into something. Your reaction is one of the following.

@markwyner@mas.to avatar

@sarajw ouch. The thing about toes is that if you break them it’s hard to tell. And if you do, there’s not much you can do about it. You just suffer for a while.

Wanna hear a joke about paper?

Never mind. It’s tearable.

@markwyner@mas.to avatar

Do y’all have any advice about mental health medications? Good/bad experiences? Recommendations? Warnings?

I’m considering this journey but am unsure if it’s the right path for me.

Grateful for any thoughts. Also happy to receive DMs from folks who don’t wanna share publicly.

@shaknais I’m really happy to hear that you helped yourself out of that hole. It’s great that you’re here with us.

@WhippoorwillSong never heard of the brain zaps thing. I’ll have to inquire about that.

markwyner,
@markwyner@mas.to avatar

@WhippoorwillSong oh, definitely. By “recommendation” I only meant about things to ask about, etc. My doctor and therapist are the ones who I’ll work with on making the actual decision.

@Snowshadow love to hear that you found a healthy path for yourself. I’m not even sure I’m gonna go down the meds path. Just exploring options. And if I do, it will supplement my meditation, therapy, etc.

@markwyner@mas.to avatar

@anomalon interesting. Thanks for the tip on this. I’ll do some research. I favor homeopathy wherever possible.

markwyner,
@markwyner@mas.to avatar

@Snowshadow thanks, friend. I have good days and bad. And, yeah, the state of the world isn’t helping. At least there are some good people in the world. Gotta make them the focus however possible.

I appreciate all of your replies. It gives me a lot to chew on. Thank you for being vulnerable and helpful. 🙌🏻

The world makes me sad so I made vegan Pad Thai. Good food helps.

@markwyner@mas.to avatar

This is not good. War is abhorrent. Things are about to get a whole lot more horrible. 😢

This blood is on Israel’s government.

The difference between a numerator and a denominator is a short line.

Only a fraction of people will understand this.

What do you call people who teach anonymously on Mastodon?

“The top 0.1% of Americans control $20 trillion in wealth. The bottom 50% control $3.7 trillion in wealth. Read that back. Folks, this is what oligarchy looks like.”

@gnomeoffender sure. I don’t hate wealthy people. I just feel they should pay their fair share. If we’re gonna have a capitalist democracy, then we need to go all in.

I also do truly believe that no one should be a billionaire. That’s more wealth than any single person ever needs. That’s gluttony and hoarding.

@markwyner Good to know. I was unaware of this.

@riwe VoiceOver, which is built into macOS. They all yield slightly different results, so you can’t rely on one to tell you everything. But testing on one will give you a baseline, and that’s better than not testing at all.

markwyner, (edited ) to accessibility
@markwyner@mas.to avatar

Every hashtag on every post on every platform should ALWAYS be pascal case (a.k.a. camel case). I made this to illustrate how screenreaders read hashtags depending on whether they are lowercase or pascal case.

It’s a small thing that all of us can do to build a more inclusive, accessible internet for all. Please take the time to use pascal case.

@BlushingSara yay! You’re absolutely welcome. And you’re right that we all need to do a better job; not just technology practitioners.
