Hi everyone, I’m moving over to from so I figured I would post a reintroduction

Well as my bio says I’m Shahaan—Canadian, mid-30s, I go by he/him pronouns and I’m vegetarian

I’ve been active on Mastodon for over a year now and I generally have positive interactions with people on here

I’m a Pakistani Zoroastrian by ethnicity, grew up in Toronto, and have a BA Anthropology from McMaster

I continue learning everyday

“I continue to stand boldly, brightly, and loudly in front of our parties, unflinchingly visible in my transness and in my authenticity because I know that I am safe, loved, and supported. I'm now far from the only trans person in Barfleet, which makes me enormously happy.

Gene Roddenberry's vision for Star Trek is one of fundamental optimism about humanity, its potential, and its future.”

"... filming Star Trek in Canada. I was surrounded by a huge cast and crew of people I'd basically just met. But when I did tell people, I was stunned to find that this massive group of strangers wholeheartedly accepted and validated me. They welcomed me in with open arms. When I looked like I needed help, someone would go out of their way to help me. If someone had a question about my identity, they asked it thoughtfully and kindly."

Probably a favourite kinda food for me.

history of censorship question 

I've been thinking about the tension between free speech and censorship and other than a brief mention of Socrates (which somehow feels like muddying the waters?) I wasn't able to find anything about the history of this tension.

What forms did government censorship typically take before mass communication tech like the printing press and the internet, beyond leaders getting mad at dangerous popular speakers like Socrates?

@schratze "check the reactor coolant" is on the house chore list, between "do the dishes" and "take out the trash"

I'm looking for a table top RPG group to join. Simplest for me would be play by post otherwise we'd need to accommodate European timezones.

Preferably some simple system: Quest or Blades in the Dark or something similar. Could be Fall of Magic even.

Boosts appreciated.

I could probably try gming if needed tho this is not my first preference.

I wanted to order something online but the first site I went to had a bunch of terrible reviews for the item.

So I went to a different site and found the exact same item, but with more positive reviews, and ordered it.

This is fine. :blob_cat_sip_glare:

I was going to add a CW saying “NFT shitpost” to a shitpost about NFTs.

But NFTs are already shitty.

So that would have been redundant.

Today I bought a fire extinguisher for the 3D printer which is definitely a good idea and much cheaper than I expected.

Still thinking about Eddington and his two-hundred-year-old lucky loonie (a Canadian one dollar coin) sitting in a storage compartment somewhere on DS9.

Thought of the day 

Until Star Trek: Lower Decks, nobody knew what happened if someone was violently ill in the holodeck.
