Pinned toot

Hello you fine people, born in 1980 in Germany. I basically grew up with computers. My dad being a tech nut I learnt to repair tube TVs in my apprenticeship (that went well …) and studied informatics for a year (that also went “well”).
I love tech, scifi and the internet with all my heart. I am recording my gameplay in various indie and Paradox games for years and nearly got rid of my formerly horrendous accent.

I don’t like censorship but my countries history taught be to be cautious. Left leaning doesn’t describe me well. I am on the very fringe of that axis but liberal to a fault. I don’t care what you do with your life if it doesn’t hurt other or infringes on their rights.

Labels are just a tool to divide us on this ride. We only have a few decades and I want to make mine the best I could possibly have.

Thanks to @freemo I am giving this whole thing another chance.

So this is not capped at some random low three digit number so I will list some more or less interesting hobbies of mine:
Painting little warhammeresque miniatures

Yup, I got a channel
Yeap, I totally display my grandfathers picture war diary

Never forget that if you are sure about something without thinking about it, it usually means you either have a bias or are totally wrong.

It's European Day of Jewish Culture!

The annual event was initiated in 1996 by the B'nai Brith of Strasbourg in the French département Bas-Rhin together with the local Agency for development of tourism. It now involves twenty-seven European countries including Turkey and Ukraine.

It's International Day of the Disappeared
This is very sad.
The International Day of the Disappeared, on August 30 of each year, is a day created to draw attention to the fate of individuals imprisoned at places and under poor conditions unknown to their relatives and/or legal representatives.
Looking at you, too United States ...

Okay, is had been a week on mastodon for me, round about, and I think the problem is not social medial or twitter it's just that I really don't like people very much.

I am just going to mute/block everyone who excuses harassment in any form.
There are definitely some edgelords on mastodon as well.

Good morning all! Going live with BattleTech this morning, fighting for planetary governments against the major houses. Hope you can join me at

@ben666 While I'm sure that would be effective, I'm not sure I'd want to have to live a life where I had to hide who I was all the time just so I didnt get harassed.

Then what if the news gets out it is you? You have to move to a new account and start making friends all over again?

I dunno I'm not sure that would be any better for him honestly.

I am very deliberately non political on Mastadon because I am extremely political on Twitter. Honestly, I love it here because I can be more myself.

I will say this though about politics, no matter who wins in the end, we all have to live with one another afterwards.

I think people need to remember that and at least try and work towards a dialogue where some working together can be accomplished.

Granted, I sometimes lose patience but I try to practice what I preach as much as possible.

Today, in "Two Categories, One Picture": "cat" and "new phone functionality test"

Me: This was actually a quite good day!
Body: It's 20:00, time to mess it up. BLEEEEEEEERGH
Me: Ok, going to take some headache pills and lay down 30 minutes
Body: LOL

Turns out I have been given a review code for Phantom Doctrin two week ago but I am an idiot.

@freemo @Surasanji @arteteco This is where the study of tribal psychology comes into play. We are wired to be good members of our tribe above anything else. They've done studies multiple times that indicate that as soon as something becomes an issue of "us vs them," people will believe outright lies because it's just what our brain does. So you can argue facts all day long but the real issue is tribalism.

@lvl39nerd is live on twitch fith Final Fantasy XIV
I have no idea what is going on because I never played any FF :X

Since I haven't done this yet...

I'm a 49 yr old guy that live streams on twitch where I talk to people about the importance of kindness and give "almost" good advice and encouragement under the guise of "your Twitch Dad".

My interests are...
#gaming (rarely live)

I'm not a role model and I don't try to be. I'm not Mr. Rogers. I just try to be the kind of person he believed I could be. (So far no success😉)
