Is it just me or are we moving back to the late 90s "smash your eyeballs" web design aesthetic? Blue text on a pink text background all on top of a picture of a beach kind of thing.

Now that I write that IG stories are bringing back that ridiculous Blingee look

"New tomato seedlings sprouting from a tomato fruit
Seeds germinating inside a tomato is called vivipary. It occurs in overripe fruit when seeds have reached maturity and the natural hormone, abscisic acid (ABA), is reduced. Then, seed dormancy is lost gradually. The tomato fruit allows vivipary since the seeds do not dry out in the moist environment inside the fruit."

Plants are astounding, with boundless possibilities and such zeal for life. Élan vital exemplified.

for all the shit people give Gargron, you do have to recognize that he was so moved by the abuses of proprietary social media services that instead of working for a tech company and becoming part of the problem, he did something about it.

yes. Gargron is not perfect. but, none of us are. there is no single person who is absolutely free of sin.

yes. there's a lot of things I disagree with him about, like the 300k user instance that is, and the way half of Mastodon's features are designed.

but that doesn't change the fact that he chose to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem. and so, as part of my yearly review of what I'm sponsoring on Patreon I decided to give him some of those resources.

Kramer: [bursts into the room] Jerry! I—

Jerry: [shoots Kramer dead]

SCENE: The camera pans out, displaying Jerry, entrenched in a fort constructed of his home's furnishings, wielding a hunting rifle. Mounds of instances of Kramer, each subtly different and each dead, litter the room.

Kramer: [bursts into the room] Jerry! I—

Jerry: [shoots Kramer dead]

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, Fediverse/Mastodon, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Fediverse plus Mastodon. Mastodon is not a social network unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning Fediverse system made useful by the ActivityPub implementations, instances and vital system administrators compromising a full social network as defined by Mark Zuckerberg.

Plants are tenacious. In an environment which suits them, they refuse to give up and are tough enough to grow through asphalt to reach their goals.

Be like plants.
