A reminder for anyone new to mastodon who might not be happy with some of the racist and bad actors out there on other servers... Just import the fediblock list to your personal blocks and you will be safe from the vast majority of bad actors.

So I got the raw 3d MRI source files from the hospital. Then I got the software needed to view the MRI in 3d. It let me rotate, slice, and even colorize the images. So **I** generated these images from the raw MRI. It shows my kidney, heart, and skeleton from 4 different angles fully colorized. How cool is that!

I also included some of just the heart and kidneys on its own from the same scan.

@freemo @Dennis1212 Cool. Talking with some of these people strongly reminds me of flerthers. "Freemo wants to be a dictator! That's why he's... (checks notes) setting up a democratic system to avoid stupid defederation nonsense. INTOLERABLE!"

@Dennis1212 I need to be more involved here. Unfortunately, stupid people keep jumping into my timeline there. Flerthers... Ye gods, what a silly bunch. But in following the responses, I catch cool stuff from RedsRhetoric and so many others. In fact, one of the provisions of qoto.org I got from @freemo via email, "It's OK to join if you are just a fan of STEM, so long as you aren't a Flat-earther or such."

has been quiet lately as I look, unless I'm missing stuff. My forays into political talk leaves people confused and angry for some reason. I wave friendly greetings to the whole political spectrum and everyone gets mad at me anyway.

People always brag about how you shoukd date a gymnist or someone who does yoga... but have you tried dating a professional masseur? I highly recommend ;)

Very first picture of me and my girlfriend together (been together 6 months now)

I went to the house and they only had a single refrigerator and no frigerator... How do thry frigerate their food the first time!? This makes no sense.

@noelle Hi, just wanted to say i was thinking about you and hope you are doing well and are happy.

@Gargron @stux @freemo

I am not attacking anyone. But I think it should be more transparent than what we see now. Blocking things as we see now in Fediverse is, imho, only speeding up radicalization. These instances would not even exist if things were dealt with more as they are in the real life.

Hi! @Gargron why freespeechextremist.com is completely blocked from here? Are we now a bunch of kids with you being the kindergarten teacher knowing better what is good or bad?

IMHO, @stux is much smarter in that regard because he warns me yet still leaves an option for me to decide whether I am sure to follow someone from a ghetto.

What is the reason behind your absolute approach?

I include @freemo into the thread because it is closely related to what we discussed yesterday.

@freemo Icon theater chain in the US has closed captions. If you want to see the captions you use a device that feeds them to your phone (via BT?). Other members of the audience cannot see your screen. Probably other chains do as well.

I totally forgot about this music video where Weezer got all the early internet celebrities together to be in their video.... my god the memories, back when the internet was an enjoyable place to be.

I'm such a nerd.. A dutch friend of mine remarked "One reason the Dutch are so good at english is when you go to the movies we dont have voice overs, we use closed captioning instead"...

I replied "no you don't", and he protested before i pointed out it is literally impossible for a movie theater to show closed captioning because by definition closed captioning implies the viewer has the control to turn it off and on, which you cant do at a theater. He was referring to open captioning :)

Mr. Bojangles is one of my favorite songs. Not only does it have a very rich an interesting African American history, but the lyrics are particularly special to me.

There is a part in the song where he says Bojangles always talks about his dog who he went everywhere with for 15 years and after 20 years since the dog's passing he still grieves. My dog passed several years ago and I always talk about her everywhere I go and keep her picture with me. There will never be a day I dont tell people about my little angel blue :)

Do ham radio operators that use a lot of CW ever get Tetris Syndrom? Must be weird going outside and seeing random flickering lights as if they are a string of random letters/

The idea that bad people having a voice on social media causes other people to become bad people (often the argument as to why we must defederate from bad servers) is equivalent to:

Thinking violent video games cause people to become violent.

Thinking explicit song lyrics cause people to become criminals

Allowing people to be openly homosexual will cause others to become homosexual

Banning books
