Me: This comment is so flippant and ridiculous that nobody will ever assume I mean it seriously.

Someone: 😡

Me: :ohnobubble:

@urbanfuzzy ah right I have no idea what's visible on various iOS apps. There is definitely server side support for making a note on an account that's only visible to you though.

@urbanfuzzy not to a block that I know of, but you can make a note attached to the account itself before you block it. I think that persists, but I guess you'd only see it again if you saw the profile.

Probably going to get cancelled as a fascist sympathiser here, but TIE Fighters are much more fun to fly than X-Wings. The Empire has the best ships. I'm not joining the rebellion. Sorry.

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.


I made fried rice for dinner that's a million times better than it's got any right to be, given it was 100% a way to use up every container of leftovers in the fridge.

Thanks, soy sauce and sriracha! You're doing a lot of heavy lifting tonight and I appreciate it.

@chidgey what I loved most was there was an older guy in charge of the tongs at the BBQ and when he turned around to hand me the sausage, he had "I'M SMILING" written in pen on the front of his mask. Got a laugh from me.

I went to Bunnings and got a sausage in bread today.

I wasn't even hungry and didn't really want it, but it felt so good to be able to do that again. It's my first one in so many months.

It was so good.

@berry Swags are good but I don't think it'll suit this.

The main issue I'm up against is that the back of the car just isn't big enough to stretch out in, I need to be sitting up slightly for this whole plan to work.

Also I'll have my proper tent, sleeping bag, a folding cot, inflatable mattress, etc for most of the time. I only want to be able to have a reasonably comfy spot in the car if I pull up somewhere late and just want to snooze for a bit without putting up a tent.

sex, complaints 

@wxcafe start recording or streaming the sounds. Charge for access. People will pay.

Collect a few dollars, then slide it (minus a fair commission) under their door with a detailed statement and thanking them for their hard work.

They'll either stop or you'll get rich. Either way, good result!

can you believe ayn rand took that marvelous, perfect thing that are trains, and wrote a right-wing book about it? right wing writing about TRAINS??

@peemee That might work OK if you didn't plan on moving them around maybe, but I'll have really limited space and need to toss things around a bit. Now I'm thinking about it, the more I'm convinced doing this with something as light as possible would be best.

I'm sure there'll end up being a night where I'd kill for half a dozen sheepskins though ...

@emmadavidson yeah I considered something inflatable, and I'll have my camping mattress with me which is, but I'm really hesitant to rely on something that might potentially fail beyond effective field repair in the middle of the night.

Beanbag repair with gaffer tape is pretty reliable, inflatable not so much.

I'll have a raised platform with storage underneath, so I think it'll be OK as I'll be easily able to pull the thing out or shove it aside easier than solid foam even.

@Rigby_Koyaanisqatsi the Star Trek dream world of just going "computer dim the lights and play some smooth jazz" when your date is about to arrive has truly arrived.

Beginning to wonder if my best option for a car sleeping base isn't a mattress but a beanbag type thing.

It'd save me needing to build a headrest kind of setup, and could be moved around and even used in my tent quite easily.

Sleeping in the car is only intended to be an occasional thing after all, if I just need to stop for a night somewhere and don't want to set up a tent in the dark.

I might get one for the camping trip in a few weeks and try it out.

@stibbons I suspect there's not enough gold on it for him. This is restrained and classy.
