This is why you should not reuse passwords. Grab a password manager, like 1Password or LastPass, put it behind 2FA, and generate a fresh password* for every site you use.

@thatsmycheesemonster No, dearie. That’s creating a hostile environment and then not accepting reality. No employer here will put up with that. No union here will protect you from your own mistakes. You don’t have to like working here. But I’m not going to allow you or anyone else to poison the mood. Go find a job you do like.

@ItsJenNotGabby @nova It doesn’t threaten me, dearie. I understand you don’t like what I said. And that’s OK. I’m speaking from experience. No union here is going to protect you when you go around creating a hostile environment for your coworkers. If you can’t deal with that, you need to be your own boss. Plenty of people do that, and it works out great.

My spouse and I were playing the other day. They were trudging through lava, amped up with fire resistance potions and water breathing, dressed in heavy armor, picking at diamonds with fortune III diamond pickaxes.

It takes a lot of time to gear up that way. We play a few hours in the weekends.

And then their air ran out.

And they couldn’t cut a breathing hole fast enough.

And their character died.

Which angered them so much that they turned off the game console.

Relatable.

I looked at the sub and it wasn't for trans at all. Some weird computer thing, apparently

Mastodon Protip: stop putting cis white men at the top of the social pyramid. It almost never ends well

No, no, young (and probably male) writer, those women are not robbing you of your success.

If you are not successful, it's because you're either not a good enough writer, or because you haven't written enough. Probably both.

It's not enough to be a better writer than Robert A Heinlein. Novels improve every year. You must become a better writer than N K Jemisin.

This has been a public service announcement from the Successful Professional Male Writers Association. #writing

@nova As do I. You might be better off being your own boss. Seriously though, what do you expect? That your boss would let you go around poisoning your coworkers? What reality do you live in where you think that acceptable?

practical guide to joining Mastodon, actual use:
1. join one of the two or three biggest generalist instances for a month or so
2. follow people on your local TL and the people they boost
3. move to a smaller instance that draws your positive attention during that time, once you're used to Masto

The one thing I really like about @fedilab is it’s built-in ability to translate toots. Other fediverse clients should copy that.

Your wish is my command, dearie. Reality will be really hard for you. I truly am sorry.

We’re playing . It’s free on PSN for a limited time. The kids love it! My spouse said it looks like Tony Hawk’s skateboarding game. And the official wiki calls it “Tony Goat.”

@nova If I were your boss and I’d hear you tell others you hate working here, I’d have you escorted off the premises. I don’t need that kind of negativity on my work floor, poisoning my employees. I prefer to employ people that like working here.

people who cosplay as "horses" and stand around in fields it is NOT OK
