On this day in 1976, CIA-funded, anti-Castro terrorists, bombed the civilian airliner Cubana de Aviación Flight 455, killing all 73 people aboard, including all 24 members of 1975 Cuban national fencing team, many of whom were just teenagers.

We roll into some yuppie suburb on our bicycles, armed with axes and spears, raze it and take all their shit

Zenep Tufekci has written some of the best online media analysis there is. She's got landlord problems

My landlord wants me to sign a new lease that gives me only two hours notice to show the house to potential buyers, upon which I am supposed to vacate the house—and if I don't do that three times, he can evict me. Two hours notice. In the middle of a pandemic.

-- Zeynep Tufekci

This is unconscionable both for Tufekci and for renters everywhere. Please give this visibility.

Bodily function 

@radicalrobit I'm going to shoot this post with a gun

Bodily function 

There are dudes that come to work in basketball shorts (already sus as perverts imo) and hike up the leg of their shorts and hang dong and ball when they pee and I've seen it maybe three times now and it shakes me to my core. Is this a regional thing? It's not ok whatever it is

trans crowdfund, boosts needed, abuse/transphobia mention 

My friend Rosy is an autistic, gay, trans woman currently living with her physically and emotionally abusive bio family in Ohio.

She's been trying to join her loving wife, Nova, in Cape Town, South Africa for most of 2020, but hasn't been able to due to the pandemic.

The SA government has lifted restrictions, but there are a lot of caveats -- including the need to stay in a low-risk country for 10 days.

Rosy and Nova have gathered some money, but not enough to cover accommodation, and extra flight costs needed to avoid laying over in transphobic regions.

Any donations will go a long way in making a HUGE difference in Rosy and Nova's lives.

Boosts so appreciated!

@hierarchon ah, hiding your king in the sokoban level. a classic gambit, but you neglected to account for my wand of digging

@hierarchon chess is a roguelike in one of the purest forms, in that it is a top-down turn-based game with simple graphics and rewards players for playing many games, slowly learning its rules and strategies

Deplatforming works.

You just gotta make sure it sticks.

I never post pictures of my cats because the fedi already has far too many pictures of cats imo and you're all a bit weird about it. but as a treat for you: this is my favourite cat, check out this fucking idiot

@owashii thank you! It's been years, and now I know, no one would ever just give me a straight answer about updog.

A personal request for monetary aid 

Hello all,

I don't need much more other than food until next paycheck, but I'm operating slightly in the red.

My paypal account is:
Sorry, but the link is a deadname giveaway.

Many thanks to all who can give.

"Stronzo" is literally "piece of shit", but I think it's the best translation for "bitch" that doesn't have sexist roots (so many curse words are sexist)

@RussellsBarbershopQuartet so the backend guy for something awful was a libertarian shithead who went by radium. long story short, he gets the boot in like 2015, a new guy comes in, and the site starts being unstable as the new guy tries to undo radium's spaghetti code, and eventually he starts explaining the kind of shit he's finding

one of them is that at some point radium had decided to name some variables slurs, and find/replacing them broke the main page
