And combine most the real people with all the bots and, well, yeah...the Internet is kind of dead. To me.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Birds cannot be trusted. They are not on our side.
I warned everyone.
In my own world, gearing up to rebuild a co-op that was poised to collapse 3 DAMN MONTHS after I joined it is tiring, and I have a horrible disease of some sort at a key moment.
I'm waiting to lose my smell beyond the sinus fuckery, because although I am fully vaccinated, it's extremely on brand for me to catch COVID, which I had a pretty hefty fear of, only as a breakthrough case... without leaving my house.
(In seriousness, I feel it's unlikely — or else there's a new variant in this co-op that is totally unaffected by vaccines. Cluster of 4 fully vaccinated people who all had different vaccines caught this horrible mess all at once with identical severity.)

Depending on the direction, I know you know that means I could be in one of the even worse SW Ohio towns. Though I only know what I have to deal with personally because I'm not a responsible citizen and have never been involved with local government. I should be responsible, though, so holler at me if you need an extra person to help protest stupid shit. Mind you, I'm just a random and this is only my second post in three years... :thinking:
My Home Town (Lebanon, Ohio) has decided to pass an ordinance not only banning, but criminalizing all abortion. The Council Meeting consisted mainly of the Council talking about how they use the Bible to make all of their decisions in local government, and friends of mine calling them on their shit.
The Protest of the decision was met with a Counter-Protest of Right-Wingers with big guns that was about quadruple the size. This is the same town where known Nazis in the area assaulted protesters on camera in the streets during past protests. It's likely going to get pretty ugly here soon, and we'll be moving into Lebanon likely within the next few months to get out of this piece of shit house.
Hopefully, I can get some SRA buddies together over the next few months to join at future Protests to discourage future threats and intimidation.
Quote1. Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place? You're a cop, right? Yeah you are. Or you're wearing a wire. I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did. Fess up.
Quote2. Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker? You're just asking for it, you know.
Quote3. Do you know any good recipes? Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.
