Europeans actually have several different ethnic groups with distinct histories. There are the proud & warlike western europeans, the aloof & intellectual scandinavians, and the gregarious russians (also known as eastern europeans). Even these can be broken down into further ethnic groups!

@quengaral this is so cool!!! I’ve played with dissociative identity effect in mirrors before but I didn’t have words or terminology for it. Sometime in the next couple of days I’m going to try this spell out!

@randynose look at him little goatee!!! A very handsome feline.

@claudiom this is such a great thing. I was working on repairing and upgrading an old thinkpad earlier this year, and checking to see if everything was working was simple as plopping in my ssd from my other laptop. It amused me greatly lol.


@maya right? Honestly at this point it wouldn't even make a difference to me if he were fat now, cause he pretty heavily uses fat coded characters to mean lazy messy slobs. I like the dudes humor, but relying on lazy harmful tropes just rubs me the wrong way. (Disclaimer I haven't looked at any of his stuff for a number of years).

Self-care is ongoing. It's not a one and done fix for everything. Take care of yourself today, and tomorrow, and the next day.

@maya I started losing interest in his stuff when I learned he was actually a skinny dude and his fat humor wasn't self referential at all.
