End of the month reboost
Hi, I'm Sarah, a disabled translady with medical expenses and food bills to pay.
paypal.me/nautilee alternately I've got this nifty wishlist of useful things - not necessarily needs but they'd make livin a bit easier / help with the chores I'm doing to (try to) earn my keep.
Glen Fucking Beck
I just watched Glen Beck showing up on CNN talking about the importance of verifying sources, not getting stuck in a bubble, and how much conspiracy theories and social media bubbles are fucking up the national discourse. Folks, if GLEN BECK has to be the one to say that, things have gotten really bad. It wasn't that long ago that Beck had his Fox News show pedaling conspiracies of his own!
Today I realized that I cannot expect people on the Internet to have heard of the Geek Social Fallacies any more.
The Geek Social Fallacies are five things that geeks often believe about How Socializing Should Work, that cause a lot of conflict. I've found them to be pretty useful as a way to put a handle on certain concepts, and maybe even avoid going into bad situations.
(Looking at them in 2017, I find myself wondering how many of the GSFs the design of most social networks is running straight into...)
Anyway, this is now a Sassassuul appreciation thread
@S_Nautilee Gosh, there's a scene where she's looking at porn made for Antarcticans and it's literally just pictures of cute snake girls hugging, fully dressed, while holding an egg. The most pornographic image imaginable.

I hate having to constantly beg for money. I hate being disabled. I hate having a fucked up body.
What really sucks is... everyone who wants to help can't. Everyone who can help doesn't want to help or probably views me as undeserving. I mean, I *look* healthy... as long as you see me with a shirt on. Got scars running the entire length of my torso but that's not even enough.
I just wanna have enough money for food and the occasional commish tbh. Don't even have the former atm.
It's worth studying enough formal logic to at least become familiar with the idea of proof by contradiction.
Take as given the assumption that the opposite of what you want to prove is true. Then, along with known facts, follow it through to its conclusion. If you reach a contradiction, one of your starting assumptions must be false; if you can be sure of the other facts, the only thing left to be wrong is the assumption that what you're trying to prove is wrong. Therefore, it must be right.
