FEAR no more the heat o' the sun,
Nor the furious winter's rages;
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages:
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust. -Fidele,Shakespeare-

😂 Elon Musk just crawled from under a rock and discovered something that has been bothering people for years. It is just too funny not to share this one.

Every time the execrable Mike Johnson appears on television, I break something. And I am running out of somethings. I don’t understand why the entire Republican party is not in jail for racketeering. I just don’t. And I’m sick of wondering why. I honestly feel that #KeithOlbermann is the only person reacting rationally to our predicament. We should all be screaming from the rafters and demanding DoJ investigate all of these gangsters and their ties to Russia. Stat.

"Slaveowners sexually assaulted and abused their women slaves—and demanded reproduction from them. Rape was used as a tool to both force the women into submission and increase the profit of slaveholders through breeding. The slaves did their best to resist and rebel against such violence, while white women failed to oppose the gruesome behavior perpetrated by their husbands."

Without IVF, I would be childless. I have two healthy children because of the procedure.

@StillIRise1963 Sadly, my late wife and I went through 5 cycles with no success. I'm glad to see that many have had success with IVF.

Excellent (and even hopeful) piece from @pluralistic on #enshittification and how we fight back against it.

"We can reverse the enshittification of the internet. We can halt the creeping enshittification of every digital device. We can build a better, enshittification-resistant digital nervous system, one that is fit to co-ordinate the mass movements we will need to fight fascism, end genocide, save our planet and our species."

The no-longer-abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, PA. Closed in 1970, ESP was left to decay until Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site Inc. began offering tours to the public in 1994. Now, it's one of the city's major tourist destinations, drawing over 220,000 visitors a year.

Luckily, they were kind enough to let me into some of the areas that are still off limits to the public 😉 https://www.abandonedamerica.us/eastern-state-penitentiary

@AbandonedAmerica I wish I could transport you to a performance my late wife and I attended in the gutted hull of the Liberty Theater on 42nd St/Time Square--Fiona Shaw doing a one woman performance of T. S. Eliot's The Wasteland. Bare bulbs, no heat, November, Porta potties. One of the most astonishing performances in one of the most surreal spaces I have ever witnessed https://www.nytimes.com/1996/11/16/theater/opening-up-ts-eliot-in-all-the-empty-places.html

When I use generative "AI" it invariably contains mistakes. That's just reality at the moment.

So when I see company after company adding AI to every product in sight, I now assume that all of those products are "creating" flawed results, by design.

This is crazy. (Google search is, maybe not coincidentally, crappier than ever.)

We need a whole genre of products that don't contain AI. Maybe they, too, are irredeemably flawed, but at least we'll know the mistakes aren't a design decision.

@dangillmor We have reached that point warned us would come: Average people will no longer know what is true.

This story about Elmo spreading democracy-threatening election misinfo on Twitter is precisely why everyone needs to treat that platform like the pariah it is. No, you sticking around to counter the misinfo won't help. That's like raking leaves in a wind storm. And yes, I know there's community there, but mingling there does you and all of us more harm than good.

The most effective thing you can do is stop giving Twitter oxygen and allowing it to become just another fringe outlet, like 4chan or Daily Caller. With the very real prospect Trump will retake the White House, this stuff matters.

#Mastodon is a leather-bound tome, a favorite story held close in front of a fire.

#Hive is a $12 paperback, thrust into a lime-green mesh bag with a towel and a tiny bottle of scotch.

#Twitter is a battered copy of Road Rash 3 with no manual or registration card, only a list of passwords for a different game and a crude drawing of a bear making love to a monkey.

@Gustodon Given the new remake of the GOP logo, I would suggest a Bear Fuckin An Elephant would be more current.
