@beckett People who think that "getting ahead" is everything, in any case. Victims of the corporate mindset, maybe?

That was supposed to be a reply to this post by @anubis2814 -- not sure what happened there.

This isn't the first time, either; is it just me, or are replies sometimes getting detached / losing their @-references?

who called it white nonsense and not

Noticing the small but consistent percentage of people who apparently think it's perfectly fine to jump into the on-ramp in order to get ahead by a dozen cars or so... 😐

@noelle I always say "make like a tree and split" or "make like a banana and leave".

It was funny the first 2-3 times, honest.

I have got to find the river
Bergamot and vetiver

I can't help wondering if this would fetch anything on Ebay these days.

My (English) grandmother, who was a huge royals fan, sent it to me when I was a kid. (...and I never even learned to smoke... such a waste.)

I can't decide if this was intended as a way for smokers to express their disdain for the royals by stabbing out cigs in their faces, or if it was just assumed that of course it was purely for display purposes, or if royals-fans would actually use it but just ignore the symbolism.

...or maybe the makers didn't care, figuring that people might buy it for any of those reasons.

When I post something in a political forum on Nextdoor, it never feels complete until I get that "laughter" emoji from at least one conservatist.

Mutual Aid Request, Urgent 

100/400 €
Hey everyone, I desperately need to make 400 € in the next 9 days in order to pay my rent and not be at risk of eviction. I feel awful posting this yet again but I'm still really struggling to survive right now. Any help at all is a blessing <3

PAYPAL: margaridamariabruxa@gmail.com

I'm a trans woman of color and I really need help with rent, Ive been working for the last 10 years as a full service survival sex worker but I really can't do it anymore.

@jenalyze We don't qualify for SECU, but we have moved almost all of our accounts to Coastal Credit Union. I'm just dealing with an executive-spoons deficit as far as moving this one last account.

@maloki Clearly he used up all the sleep in the room, and now you have to let it recharge.

@scanlime And yet, you also have skills that could be valuable for ameliorating it.

Capitalism has very little use for repairing and hand-making...

re: Bottom surgery, neovaginas 

@sweetmslily The lack of depth isn't as much a big deal as the amount of erectile tissue still left over (at the base of what was once the Very Unwanted Schlong, below the neovag opening). Any idea if that goes away with more depth?

re: Bottom surgery, neovaginas 

@sweetmslily That does sound good to know! I got what was called "limited depth" (via MacPhee), but what I got sounds more like what is now called "no depth"; for one thing, there was never any dilation, and for another I don't know that I could fit an entire finger in there (not that it would feel very comfortable, either).

What if... there was a place where we could just store donated unfashionable clothing until it was old enough to be "retro".
