Today has been a "work-related social faux pas" kinda day

@bgcarlisle I want "Don't tell me about the straights" on a t-shirt.

Morpheus: We don't know who struck first, us or them. But we do know that it was us that scorched the sky. Not intentionally or anything, though. That's just like smog from fossil fuels. In retrospect, humanity should have been better at taking the climate crisis seriously.

FB mention; Fedi snark 

> Facebook: some high-profile users ‘allowed to break platform’s rules’

Huh, I thought that was a Fedi-only problem

~ Every time ~

The gays: I'm attracted to you

Me: Aw thanks

Me: What no

(:NoAt: don't reply to tell me about the straights)

But instead

You write Star Trek: Picard

Today in headlines that aren't as awesome as they sound:

Ungrateful animal returned
to captivity.

My mom was a photographer, and I've been going through her old photos now that I own the rights to them to release them into the public domain.

So, enjoy this photo she took of LeVar Burton.
