coming up on two years of the fediverse, my research is complete.

the only ubiquitous content is the self-referential stuff. we're all here for a reason and it hurts too much to not laugh about it.

fedi: people with money are ruining everything

twitter: why can't you just be happy for me

facebook: let's sell the data and let the market decide

apple: not on my watch

google: yes, the watches, that is a great idea

microsoft: gonna need some tiny ass software for those watches

amazon: and a way to deliver them

elon: in space and underground

fedi: y'all get the fuck out of my replies

Tonight is the night I actually became a Warriors fan.

My take: Elon is less interested in buying twitter now that the sale didn't go through before his sexual misconduct allegations broke

In the past year I've been called "white boy" exactly two times.

The first was at a party where someone was like, "as the token white dude you'll be responsible for answering the door if the cops show up"

And the second was at my wedding posing for a photo with the same friends when my uncle that's an ex-cop whispered it to my mom, so I get it.

I got married a few days ago. For the end of my bachelor party, I MC'd a roast of myself and my replacement best man scored this shot.

when ppl say the equivalent of "i pulled myself up by my bootstraps"

i think "you had the *opportunity* to pull yourself up by the bootstraps"

and i think about all the people without boots yanking their achielles tendon raw just trying to stand up.

here's a proof that we're all the same person, look at me posting this from all my alts
