that time I got so mad I disconnected my home internet for a month

is there anything more fun than trading insults amongst friends?

Britons spend more than twice as much on bird food than the rest of Europe combined. As a result our great tits are developing longer beaks.

Netflix should offer a permanent monochrome filter. So many shows are improved in monochrome.

weird consequences of allowing landlords 100% dictatorial sway over city and county governments

Sooo... wow... okay a lot of people shared the previous post! Welcome again to all the new members!

It might be good if I clarified how Mastodon works, as some people think they need to sign up on multiple servers etc.

Short version: You do not need to sign up on multiple servers! Don't have FOMO! One server works fine!

Longer version:

Mastodon is a federated network, which means it's made of lots of independent servers that talk to each other.

And... everyone uses federated networks all the time! You probably use them so much you never even think about it 😮

Telephones use a federated network, so does email.

You only need one phone to call anyone anywhere. It doesn't matter if they're on another phone company or in another country, because all phone companies are federated together into a single network.

That's how Mastodon works. You get an account, and you follow people you're interested in, and they appear in your timeline. It doesn't matter if they're on another server.

Meet Cooper. He’s 17 & he gets whatever he wants bc he’s my angel & honestly: look at him.

I hope the photos show up ok bc I can’t see a way to edit them after linking them. Is that something I should do before posting?

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

karl (my dog) has finally begun to accept and enjoy getting bathed in the human tub bc he gets all his favorites, attention, being rubbed with towels, running water, all in one place. once he realized that he was like “oh, I like this okay you can wash the other side too you know” anyway now he’s squeaky clean instead of greyish

it's a lovely morning in your thinkpad's bios, and you are a horrible little goose
