When you realise what you did wrong, know that I will forgive you. It's the only way either of us grows.

I still think about how Silicon Valley is unwilling to invest in African startups unless they are run by white preferably American men. Twiga is the most glaring example where one of the co-founders was previously the head of Coca-Cola's West and Central Africa Business Units and the other is a dude named Grant.

I'm not exaggerating, his background is so un-noteworthy they had nothing to include in the article other than he was a Texan and where he went to school.

Antisemitism is in many ways a uniquely European problem since it stems from the relationship Christians chose to have with Jewish people. There are places like India that somehow managed for 1000s of years to not be systemically bigoted against the Jews.

Just started collecting my short stories and seeing which of the indy venues I published them in are still around.

I want to support the small places but I'm starting to think I need to submit to established places more often if only for there being a higher chance that they are still around in a couple of years.

Hey does anyone remember that summit where people were arguing actually Marx would be in favour of private property in China?

I'm going to call it. @yogthos shares some of the best agitprop on the network. I legit enjoy so much of what he does, and even when I disagreed found someone who I can have an earnest and honest discussion with.

I think everyone had a favourite meteorologist growing up. And mine will forever be Mr. G

Argh in an attempt to keep strife low, I personally sent a letter to a friend in another org about the things they are doing to annoy and upset members of our org and now they are publicly shouting about it.

Is there a reasonable way to give criticism on an organisation to organisation level? I always assumed there is no such thing as orgs working together only people who well together happening to just be taking their respective orgs along for the ride.

So I raided a neighborhood 🍐 tree. Is there a risk of these being poisonous or are all pears safe to eat?

A lot of people grow chives (Allium schoenoprasum) to eat, and for the flowers which are great for bees and butterflies.

To extend the season, once they have finished flowering and going to seed, c. late June-early July, cut them down to the base. Within a week or two they will start growing back and you'll get a second harvest and round of flowers.

I should take off work for my birthday but I'd rather do a three day weekend instead.

Échappez le regard en allant là où ils ne regarderont pas

Je vous apprécie tous. Continue d'être ouf!

Working out in the morning is rough but gets your day started on a good note. Working out in the evening can feel meditative as you reflect on your day. But working out after a very long and very boring work meeting is downright glorious.

I can't plan for this and I need to make do this in a habit forming way but I'll try to remember how much I like this feeling I have now.

Shitposters are some of the most fragile people on the internet. You'd think people who love throwing shade would be better at catching it.
