I’m trying to improve my Japanese by replying to everyone whose posts I understand with what I hope is both a grammatically correct and coherent reply. If you got one and can read this, please forgive me if they’re neither. I don’t mean to bother you or anything. My Japanese is just that terrible.

I am cursed by a disability to cook rice. My spaghetti, though, are usually pretty good.

Workers, the most absolutely necessary part of the whole social structure, without whose services none can either eat, or clothe, or shelter himself, are just the ones who get the least to eat, to wear, and to be housed withal.

Throwback to 4yrs ago when I saw Joseph Gorden Levitt was staying at the same hotel as me and I asked him if he 'Joseph Gordon Loved it' and he looked at me like I was a complete idiot

I wonder how many educators are on here.

There were thriving communities of educators on Tumblr and Twitter, but Tumblr's went to heck after moderated hashtags went away and Twitter is ... Twitter.

The fediverse has Scholar.social, but that's more of an instance for college/university level academics. I'd like to connect with other K-12 educators.

My least favourite type of person is that who is miserable, never stops complaining about it, but doesn’t want to change because that’s part of who they are and it would be like betraying themselves or something.

YOU are the ones who make the Fediverse BORING.

The Yes Men prank impersonate Paul Wolfowitz to put out an anti-war message:

"Tom Basile actually knows Wolfowitz, as he mentioned during the broadcast. Andy hadn't planned to impersonate him, so he didn't bother listening to his voice — and we're pretty sure he sounds nothing like him. Yet Basile never noticed. Could Basile's complete lack of observational ability have anything to do with his horrible politics?"

Why does nobody create a service that competes with LinkedIn? LinkedIn is complete garbage on every level imaginable (usability, discoverability, search…). It just doesn’t work. At all. It’s the Cyberpunk 2077 of social networks. No amount of patching can fix that shit.

I forgot something important: I really appreciate being corrected when I’m wrong, so please don’t be shy. Thank you.
