Truck carrying gaming dice spills on Atlanta highway, rolls an estimated 756,000
"The truck was undamaged, having made its saving throw."
So of course there are 9/11 movies trending on Prime Video. One of them is "9/11 Phone Calls From The Tower". And uh, that seems exploitative. If I had a voicemail from a loved one who died in a terror attack, recorded during the attack, I'm torn between "this is a historical document that should be preserved" and "rubberneckers get bent".
Omg Angel Beats is on Netflix! That was such a good show. #Anime
so there’s a new search engine for the fediverse: https://search.social.

if you’re an instance admin, you can opt your entire instance through robots.txt. you can set this up in nginx: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1090823/how-do-i-configure-nginx-to-redirect-to-a-url-for-robots-txt-sitemap-xml#3746344
Violence is not just hitting someone in the face. Violence is passing legislation and policies to deny a sick persons access to healthcare. Violence is removing peoples autonomy and the ability to have safe abortions. Violence is removing funding for food programs that help feed the starving. Violence is dismantling housing and aid programs that help the homeless. Violence is sanctions placed on "third world" nations leading to starvation and death. Violence is the criminalization of drug use. Violence is discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender or lack thereof, race, ability, or age. Violence isn't just throwing fists or shooting people. Violence has evolved with our society to be far more cunning, shifting and bureaucratic than that.

I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist
