i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

One of the unexpected joys of the fediverse over other places is the addition of weird domains appended on to everyone's usernames.

It makes the web feel like more than just four websites again.

It's both a signal of a smaller more intimate internet and also a larger and far more diverse internet at the same time!

The attitude that ad blocking is equivalent to piracy is ridiculously entitled. Ads take up bandwidth, they use electricity, they make your equipment outdated quicker by increasing bloat, they reduce the lifespan of your devices, they threaten your privacy, they manipulate you, and malicious ads try to entice you into compromising security.

The greatest cost is to you, the end user, it also costs the environment too, of course. The company makes a small fraction of that cost in revenue, and passes an even tinier fraction on to creators and so on. If you defend this model, you are morally bankrupt.

Covid-19 PSA: Depression, mental health issues put you at risk (-) 

My therapist has been talking about this for weeks, but the CDC has put depression on the list of 'at risk' conditions for covid. People with anxiety, depression, bi-polar, schizophrenia, PTSD and other mental health condition are also at risk. It has to do with how chronic stress and inflammation can lead to worse outcomes if you do get covid. This is getting more mainstream press now. Stay safe friends! vox.com/science-and-health/227
