I have been in an accident on my bicycle and broken my face. No time spent in the hospital more than the day of the occurance.  I don't remember much of the day (yesterday) because I got a fairly serious head injury and that is kind of fucking with me.

I haven't posted here in forever, and few of you probably remember me.

But like. I wanted to say this place, among others, confirms how obvious I was.

I found out this year I'm a transwoman, and this avatar itself is of a transwoman. All my avatars for years were women (save one video game character just recently).

It's just so fucking weird how long it took me to realize this. So naturally I want to tell Discordians about it.

Oh no,  prepare to decide that the majority of Discordians are transphobic.

(hint, they are not)

After a couple hours of travel the ship discovered a canoe with a lone arawak, armed with a bow and arrow.  The inhabitant said she was scavenging materials for making herbalist potions from.  They continued their journey and put into the port of Montserrat,  there Olaf spoke to the magistrate about his acquisition of the ship and had it registered as his in French colonial territories.  They then recovered the Liberte, the ship of Black Bart, and his remaining dozen crew members and, after returning to Mont Serrat, recruited 30 new crew members including an enthusiastic dragon hunting fencer named Pierre.

My offspring is very into ASMR videos.  They make me feel kind of weird, but they are creepy enough that I can't watch one long enough to really evaluate my response without feeling gross so I don't quite understand what kind of weird.

They usually consist of a young woman whispering and doing things near the camera accompanied by the sounds those things might make. This includes things like shaving the viewer's face, massaging the viewer, or crumpling paper.  It's intimate in a way that is kind of uncomfortable for me, particularly in the company of my offspring.

I am working as a mason.  Well, general construction assistance, but at the moment I am assisting with masonry.  I am also building a teeny tiny castle from leftover rubble. So far the castle consists of an outline made of chicken wire.  I am excited about it and will probably post pics when it is done.

In Saint Kitts Queequeeg and Herbert went to recruit crew, they found a few seamen and also (Irish name forgotten due to consumption of intoxicants during play to be inserted later) who was playing music to entertain the crowd in a tavern.  Glorm the demon returned to let Olaf know that he was unable to recover his ship, but he offered him 400 pounds of recovered ivory and a barrel of whale oil, as well as a pound of opium.  Queequeeg sent Kali to arrange a boxing match while Olaf and the bard went to court to settle the matter of the pirate ship that they were on.  Olaf told the court how they had acquired it and received a legal title in the eyes of the Dutch government.  The bard played music and the representative of the crown had his wig infested with fleas.  Olaf handled the gambling for Queequeeg's match, the bard played music which inspired the crowd to overconfidence and Olaf drummed up a vast quantity of people to bet and offered 2:1 odds favoring Queequeeg.  Kali found an aggressive dog, which attacked his gorilla, but he managed to calm it down and win it's grudging acceptance.  Queequeeg's opponent was overcome with lust, upon hearing the songs being sung to accompany the fight and switched from punching to grappling Queequeeg, he was thrown to the pavement and fell asleep as the song switched to a lullaby.

The boat headed south to find the ship of Black Bart, who had managed to seize it back from Billy Blood while Glorm was attempting to retrieve the whaling ship and gambling ensued.  The bard ended up badly in debt to the crew, some of which debt was settled in exchange for sexual favors the rest of which was simply held.

The ship found a long boat with an East Indian man and a gorilla on board.  The man identified himself as Kali and declined to introduce the gorilla.  The ship headed east and managed to find the island of Antigua where they went to the jungle and Elysia, Queequeeg and Kali went into the jungle to try to find a shaman to cleanse Olaf of his curse.  They discovered a couple of pig traps, which Kali disassembled, and then set up camp on top of a hill to wait for the locals to arrive.  The locals arrived and brandished spears.  Queequeeg and Elysia dispatched a couple of the natives quickly, Herbert Wilcox appeared in the jungle from nowhere, apparently a glitch in his time travel spell, and dispatched another, in a rather dramatic fashion due to his high tech bullets.  Kali was taken down by a couple of spears but played dead briefly before arising to attempt to take advantage of the shock from the high tech death.  Elysia was taken down and althoguh she did not die she was unconscious.  Queequeeg chopped a man in half with the vibro blade weapon he had bought from Deskar, Kali's gorilla knocked a man through the air and Kali managed to get the natives to surrender.  Olaf had sent reinforcements when he spotted the fire and the reinforcements shot down several natives as they tried to escape.  They returned to the ship and sailed to the  port of Antigua where they rented a slave named Juan who spoke both Spanish and Carib.  Queequeeg gave assurances which were betrayed, by agreement from the crew.  He also rallied the crew behind him in a mutiny against Olaf's captaincy.  The ship headed west toward Haiti where Juan knew a voodoo bokor who could possibly cleanse Olaf.

The ship was waylaied by a Spanish Naval sloop which crippled them with a cannon blast.  Kali sent his crows, carrying rats that he had trained to chew ropes, over to chew the ropes from the sails and Herbert shot the helmsman.  Kali managed to repair the worst of the holes made by the cannon and the ship sped off while the Spanish were left faltering in the water.  They then encountered a flotilla of Arawak canoes, the Arawak were intially hostile but did no serious damage with flaming arrows before being persuaded to let the party know the location of their village on St Kitts.  The party made their way there where they learned of a remote valley in Mexico where great feathered beasts roamed and were told that the tailfeather of one of the largest of them, a monster with teeth as long as man's arm that stood on two legs with two little useless clawed arms, could be used to chase the demonic taint from Olaf.

I hear Arizona is going to start taking people's houses away if they plan a protest.

I have a real job for the first time in a very long time.  it involves getting up very early in the morning and helping people build houses.  i am enjoying it far more than I would have predicted.

Unfortunately the weekly world news, which was the best of them, seems to have gone out of business.

The article in the guardian is not using virtue signalling in the same way that Roger uses it in the first post.  Roger is defining it as making statements to identify with a group wheras the guardian uses it as making statements to identify as good or virtuous.  Roger's definition is more specific and more useful.

The Adam smith article does the same thing.

"people are increasingly disaffected with their governments and more willing to support authoritarian leaders."

What a weird combination.  "Our governments are shit, let's try electing people that want to abuse their power!"

I am binge watching Preacher.  It's as good as I expected it to be. 


To which I responded with two links outlining Love Lives Here's support of an ordinance that would ban Richard Spencer from owning an office in Whitefish. Richard Spencers mother lives in his former home which is still listed as one of Richards offices from when he lived there. Now even if this doesnt pass, what it has done is brought a lot of negative publicity and hate down on Richard Spencers mother, who hasnt done anything besides giving birth to Richard Spencer and him occasionally visiting.

According to your source she attending meetings of a white supremacist organization.  That's not nothing.
