The nature of male friendships can be summed up by that one scene in Grease when Zuko and Kenickie are outside the school shop with the rest of the T-Birds and start playfully slapping each others shoulders in a teaseful way.

Twenty years ago, one evil multinational company attempted to seize control the web by forcing their web browser on everyone.

If they had succeeded, the wide, open, diverse and inclusive web we have today would not exist.

Honestly half the time I go look at someone's fedi profile to see if I should follow them is because they have a cute icon

"Electric cars are environmentally friendly!"

- A do-gooder who has no idea how many tonnes of greenhouse gases go into constructing and maintaining each lane-mile of road.
