Houses should be owned by residents, not landlords. Workplaces should be owned by workers, not bosses. Trains should be owned by commuters, not capitalists. Aquifers should be owned by the people drinking the water, not someone hundreds of miles away. And they should be owned by everyone that uses them, collectively
The only confusion I've seen with this sentiment has taken the form of "so when I'm not wearing the clothes in my closet people can just come take them?" to which the answer is "that'd be a dick move, so no."
gross body stuff
Why can I taste anxiety now? Why is it now when ever someone tells me I fucked up I taste acid? It’s like throwing up in my mouth without any regurgitation. Just oops I’m stressed time to taste acid! Does my brain think I have been missing the signals since I started taking anti anxiety meds? I have had anxiety for almost all 30 years of my life why is it now it decided to add a flavor element? And how to I change the flavor? Can I get anxiety that tastes like chocolate please?
Neural net + jello
WHAT HAS OCCURRED CANNOT BE UNDONE
I have trained a neural net on a crowdsourced set of vintage jello-centric recipes
I believe this to possibly be the worst recipe-generating algorithm in existence
vague spoiler for Broken Earth Trilogy
And it can be hard to predict shit because the way Jemisin hides things is genius. She explains it right in the middle of an Interlude in book one. “People don’t pay attention to what’s not there.” The big reveals are about things that aren’t mentioned but probably should be if they existed. The absence is conspicuous but first you have to know something is missing at all
N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy is so fucking good! She writes such a unique world and crafts a one of a kind narrative so that you can’t rely on knowledge of tropes to predict what will happen, BUT if you are paying attention you realize things just before they are revealed and you feel so fucking smart for figuring it out.
How did I write this whole thread and not make a Twin Twink pun
