every day i read a series of enlightened blog posts and video essays, bringing my iq up to the double digits. and every night the fucked-up position i sleep in cuts off the blood flow into my brain, bringing it back down to 5

Heaven Or Las Vegas is SUCH a good album. if you like shoegaze/fuzzy rock in general and you've (somehow) never listened to Cocteau Twins pls do yourself a favor and listen

@Aleums a non trivial amount of computer errors are caused by gamma rays from the sun hitting a physical location on computer memory and flipping a bit. there is no known technique for shielding gamma rays

That's interesting, if you go to the Global Timeline the longest messages tend to be anything but English. Maybe it's just when I happen to check, but it seems as though users who speak Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, etc., are more frequently posting full paragraphs. I wonder why that is? I'll have to brush up on my languages

@dd Whatever about the content you SEE, I didn't even think about where MY toots would go

Oh NOW I understand how instances work...I'll probably keep this one around, but I'll definitely have my eyes peeled for something more thematic lol

@dd It might be terribly naïve but I'm still hopeful of finding some form of social media which doesn't cause me far more harm than good. Twitter and Instagram combined have felt absolutely horrible to engage with for a long time now...using them to keep up with people I know IRL has never made up for that, especially since all anyone seems to do for the most part (myself included) is share others' content, so I don't actually end up all that informed about my friends' lives...
