@freemo Bruh. How was SCUBA?

I've had four pneumothoraces back in college. No scuba diving for me. Or sky diving.

@StrikerD That really sucks. The pictures are from a few months back but its amazing on the island!

I'm a full tech, cave, and solo trained diver. So lots of deep ocean stuff.

@freemo Yeah, I gotta catch Planet Earth for that stuff.

Also, thank you for posting something about real life, not meta, internet stuff. So many people on Mastodon only post about Mastodon.

Well, there's also the anime and furries. Still, the list is pretty short.

@StrikerD I have noticed due to our science/research/engineering leaning here (not just tech) we tend to post a lot o the real world sciences. QOTO has quickly become my favorite and only instance.

@freemo Darn it, Freemo, you're not supposed to entice me away from my instance!

@StrikerD Most of our guys are Ph.D. and students in all sorts of sciences like Geology, environmental, Civil engineering, history, tech, pure math. Its really a good crowd if your a science nerd.

@freemo This is me, enjoying what is likely to be one of the last times I can enjoy the pool this season

@freemo Thank you, after a long day in the shop this what I look foreword to. I put the pool up for the kids, but I’ve always loved the water myself.
If I could afford it, I would live near the ocean. I love the open water and the waves

@W201028 Man the water is fucking magickal. Nothing batter than just floating along or going for a swim. I'm one of those crazy people where if you put me in an ocean I immediately swim to the ocean, laugh at how the beach is a dot on the horizon then swim back :)

@freemo I hear you on that brother! If I’m at a public beach with life guards, I’m the first one whistled at for swimming out too far lol

@W201028 The key is to make sure you get far enough out that you can't hear them yell at you anymore, then by the time they panic and come in after you you have enough of a head start they can't catch yup to you :)

@freemo And thanks for reminding me about the profile. I set one up on .social and just assumed it would be ported over to this instance

@W201028 @freemo


Hey I'm also Native American. Look almost exactly like you. Full beard and pretty chill dude.

Thanks for being such a great hero! Stay optimistic/ chill man. Thanks for the useful instance in the fediverse


@QuantumHemp Thanks for the kind words! Its awesome having you here too. Maybe one day we will get to Smoke a Peace Pipe :)


@freemo =

and this is me ,

year 2010 ,

but i have not changed

too much !

: )

@freemo Nice to meet you! It's interesting that when we finally see someone whose face we didn't know, but whom we've been interacting with, it's always a good surprise! A strange sensation, because we tend to form a certain image, one that I can't even describe because it's absolutely vague, but a good one! It's like when we meet someone with a mask that we didn't know. When the person removes the mask it also feels strange. Well, the point is that it's nice to be able to put a face to your thumbnail. 😁

@joaopinheiro Its nice to "meet" you as well :)

i can relate to that sentiment, I think seeing someones face gives us a certain feeling as to their personality. not always an accurate one mind you, but inaccurate or not it gives the person more dimension and makes them feel more real for sure.

@freemo That's it. This year I started teaching several new classes; students I hadn't ever met before. And it was very strange, both for me and for them, when we saw each others' faces when we had a sip of water in class!
