Laws only matter if there exists at least one person willing to commit violence against you to enforce them. 🕊

Said another way: are we really only doing this shit because a bunch of people would prefer to plug their ears and close their eyes and hide behind this crusty old document?

Legit question about history and governance (specifically in the US, but possibly more generally):

For what reason do we not completely revise the constitution? It is not holy scripture and was written hundreds of years ago by people whose views on society are now largely unaccepted (e.g. womens rights).

We can amend the constitution sure, but is there any actual historical precedent for the benefits of maintaining a multiple-hundred-year-old constitution versus rewriting it periodically?

Evolution has us out here being smart enough to fuck up our way of life such that we no longer adhere to the lifestyle that evolution worked to get us to be good at.

I'll be doing a lil talk at the GameMaker June Meetup in London, at @LoadingBar on June 24th. I'll be talking about pitching, publishing etc from the lens of Super Rare Games.

If you're an indie dev that uses GameMaker, you should come along! ✨

Every now and then I remember that gravity is actually just the bending of spacetime and is basically just movement in a dimension we cannot comprehend and I just kinda shut down for a few minutes

Excited (and many other mixed emotions) to say I am stepping away from my current position at Stripe to take a few months off before starting a new role at another company.

Looking forward to taking some time for myself and my projects, but also to just relax and enjoy life for a bit!

Would just be nice to help kickstart broader federation, maybe fetching the 1st degree of commenters as it would fetch accounts that are boosted.

If I had to wager a guess, it’d be because it can’t account for filtering out messages based on block settings? And also to prevent overloading servers?

Is there anything in activitypub or the mastodon api which would allow for a client app to fetch the origin server’s view of a given post?

quietcar.social is new still and so most of the posts seen from our view are missing many replies and favorite/boost counts. Clicking through to the original post of course gives the whole picture, so curious as to why my client (or the server) can’t ask for that in the details screen? Perhaps a security or privacy thing?

Would be great if possible!

Well mission accomplished but I had to put his harness on while he protested on the floor and then basically dragged him out the door. Messy work but we got there. We got there.

Gearing up for the psychological torture of dragging my dog outside during a thunderstorm knowing that he needs to pee but I’m subjecting him to his worst fear 😭
