Calculation of π, from rain falling on two wooden plate sensors, one circular and one square: the number of raindrops that landed on each plate during a storm was counted with an Arduino and π was calculated as the ratio [source & credits:]

A government cannot simultaneously be punitive over minor infractions while negligent of their duty. You get revolts that way.

What fries me about being kicked off Birdsite is that I had carefully pruned my follows list to my liking. I want to keep it light without being uninformed or out of touch with the world at large. That means following the right people, the right accounts. Making sure to removing anything that gets too spammy, too toxic, or too repetitive. Moderating a good feed is an art, and Birdsite suspensions remove that from you with no recourse. Fuck them.

I know some of you out there despise AI generated art, but I think it's hilarious. You could not ask for funnier results than this.

The Ramones may have made simple music, but they were geniuses. "I Wanna Be Sedated" is about Joey being so bored and depressed that he wants to go unconscious, and they turned the lyrics into to a fun pop rock song that you can dance to. Brilliance.

Why is "Crown" one of the more skipped tracks on Kdot's "Mr. Morale"? It's like the best song on the album!

The police will gladly let abusive users harass, defame, and doxx you online because they have "free speech" to do it, and when you get assaulted and beaten up for exercising your rights, it just "comes with the territory."

Everyone: Your freedom and safety is in danger right now. The police will NOT protect you. You are on your own!

Does anyone here know how to actually get a harassing tweet about themselves deleted? Twitter’s forms won’t help, and I have been banned.

Making fun of billionaires is "targeted abuse" now. I didn't realize "billionaires" were a protected minority class, because they aren't mentioned even once in Birdsite's Terms of Service.

I'm not saying that everyone on every instance needs to be visible (that's part of what makes the other social networks so awful), but it is a walled garden. I want to find friends!

All I really want to do is play in my sandbox and not be bothered by anybody and be happy. Is that too much to ask?

This site doesn't make it easy to discover or follow users from other instances. Trying to add a new follow makes me I feel like I'm back in the 1990s carefully typing in URLs again.
