I feel like for most people I know something's wrong if you don't spend at least 90 minutes a day online

Me: carefully backing my car out between a wall and a tree

How do people have the energy to get through a 16-hour day?

Internalized Transphobia 

I completely understand that nonbinary identities are valid, but growing up with a conservative family has just left this massive self-doubt in me about whether or not me being nonbinary could actually be valid. Ugh

Internalized Transphobia 

Been thinking about this for a while now. I'm pretty sure I'm nonbinary, but always have this nagging feeling in the back of my mind that I'm just making it up. I sometimes catch myself referring to myself in my head using pronouns that correspond with my AGAB, and then I feel like shit

I also like how Pod Save America is seen as significantly more left-wing than most other outlets, including The Intercept and Democracy Now.

If you average scores from people on the left, right, and center, who would have thought centrist outlets would get the highest scores!

Decided to look into the methodology of the latest edition of The Media Bias Chart®. To determine each outlet's bias and accuracy, they didn't even try to have an objective measure of factual accuracy. Instead, they got a panel of 3 people on Zoom—1 "left"-winger," 1 centrist, and 1 right-winger—to rate how far left or right and how accurate they think the article is. The scores they give are AVERAGED to give a final score. This is not a reliable metric off of which to base media criticism

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.

I'm so conflicted about witch windows. On one hand they look super cool. On the other hand though I want the highest chance I can get of a strange magical person flying into my room in the dead of night on a broomstick.
