Ashley's song sounds like a remix of "Head like a Hole" by NIN.

You can see how much power the grid can generate, and how much we're using in almost real time! Also see emissions, renewables, and wholesale energy cost!

Under-screen cameras, popup cameras, notches... so many horrible solutions to a problem that doesn't exist, and only make things even less repairable.
Browsing my Music and I see the Steven Universe soundtracks. I think, "gosh its been a while since I listened to this" and put on the last 3 tracks from Volume 2.
So now here I am crying listening to "Love Like You (Reprise)" because Steven Universe makes me cry, apparently. It has been a while so I forgot.
I have had a *lot* of astronomers come up to me and quietly say "I don't usually mention it because I have a boyfriend but..."
(I am pretty visible in general and wear a rainbow pin to conferences.)
(Er, I'm not implying astronomers are special in this, that's just who I go to conferences with.)
And maybe (sorry for turning the entire thread into a rant) I should explain why I care: media representations of bi people shape how we think of ourselves.
If all the bi characters we can think of are a bit wild and don't do monogamy and don't care about convention including other people's existing relationships, what does that do to us when we start to think of ourselves as bi?
In the early second season (?) she gets Tahani for a soulmate in one of the replays (which makes me wonder about Tahani, but). But yes, she's very likable.
This is what I i taking about elsewhere in the thread: we need enough bi (and other kinds of queer!) characters that negative features of one don't read as a statement about all bi (or...) people.
It's also important to look for certain common threads in how bi characters are portrayed.
I actually wore out a wired optical mouse. I didn't think that was possible

I like that the first thing on McElroys' list to fix of GoT is to take the incest and rape out.

Went into the office Friday specifically because I had a sch'd meeting with my mgr. 25 mins before the meeting An email comes up that the passwords are changing, which happens when someone leaves. So I'm shitting bricks through the department meeting panicking that I'm about to get fired, even though I've had no problems and my job is pretty cool. Turns out it's security related and everything is cool. But keeping my shit together as the chest tightens sucks.
Political but not any current politics (+) Show more
Something to keep in mind is that a culture of obedience is one that breeds authoritarianism
Encourage challenging of power, normalize questioning decisions of bosses and leaders, boost voices that are unheard and defend one another
Parents: do not normalize blind obedience! Encourage your children to stand up for their ideas and see equity instead accepting tyranny
Today I'm feeling this is very crucial
GoT spoiler, violence, pol Show more
I don't watch GoT but I've caught some of the conversation and absorbed some just existing and I gotta say...
A white person gets awesome weapons and goes on a killing spree against anyone that they think disrespected them and justifies it with their personal trauma, and people are like "that's not how it should be!"? Cause I kinda feel like that's how it is.

Can we just *not* with the ____ Master Race bullshit? It's never been cool, but especially now with the rise of white nationalists and stuff... it's even worse.
(Just saw "Halo Master Race" referenced. Also the ever classic "PC Master Race" thing. And so on.)
