hello, i wanted to make a lil introduction post as my first one here :) i'm muumibee and i recently made the switch to mastodon because i wanted to find more personalized communities n stuff.
i read a ton of books and binge shows when i'm not doing work for grad school. i also do lots of pixel art and like to play slow paced video games like SDV and such. i love to rant and rave about whatever show i'm watching, book i'm reading, game i'm playing, etc. and can't wait to just have a space to info dump!
anyways, let's be pals :) tell me about your favorite show/movie/book/game/etc.!!!
Feelings about being high-risk for covid
Another day, another person asking my high-risk self to excuse and bless them for not taking covid precautions. I am not the pope of covid, I will not be giving you special dispensation to continue exiling my community from society.
One day I had two at once. In the same post. Both telling me that I knew they care but they just really needed a break so an unmasked vacation and a dinner out was fine, wasn't it?
I'm not anyone's token at-risk person to be trotted out as an excuse for bad and dangerous behavior.
If everyone and everywhere took baseline safety precautions we could all do things.
Here's the reference for my last toot. I shall attempt to make it screen reader-friendly!
unrelated but also something that bothers me is the "nobody has an accent" crowd because it makes no sense. regardless of if you're speaking your native tongue or not, you have some kind of an accent linked to either where you grew up or how you learned the language or some other influence! it's cool and we shouldn't pretend it doesn't exist, accents are awesome :) it's just weird to be so adamant that accents somehow don't exist
I think the best thing i ever did for myself when I was younger was take like 3-4 years of Spanish. it has stuck so well with my. my speaking is terrible, but my ability to read/listen and comprehend is still very reasonably good compared to the average American EFL speaker and it has helped me in more situations than i can count since then.
this also has convinced me that the US is so dumb for not offering language courses to much younger students because i know for a fact the reason i retained so much is because i learned it while i was a preteen. I got so lucky with the teachers too, they taught us how to break down words and guess their meaning both in and out of context based on word structure, placement, roots, prefixes, suffixes, etc. such a good skill man, i am so grateful for it
I highly recommend setting the language of your posts, as this helps people using screen readers. The content is automatically read with the correct voice and pronunciation. This feature of setting the language of your post isn't implemented in all apps yet, but works well in the web interface.
If you only post in one language you can set a default (but do remember to set that default if it's not English).
Also, it helps people filter posts from specific languages.
i knew this white girl in high-school once (super straight hair, no texture) that got super tight cornrows and everyone was like "dude that's not cool," but she would ignore us all. Anyways like the next year apparently she had to take them out because her hair was falling out so bad and she came to school with a wig. Someone yanked it off and she had like full on bald row-type patterns because of how tight they were on her head. just something i thought about again today, it was wild
Breaking Bad (spoilers if you've not seen the show!!)
i literally cannot fathom how moronic Walt is throughout this entire show. He could've had that job at Grey Matter when Elliot offered it to him (GOOD STABLE INCOME). He could've accepted their offer to pay for his treatment. He could've worked quietly under Fring in the fancy lab. He could've let Hank believe Gale was "Heisenberg." He could've sold the methylamine to Declan and gotten FIVE MILLION BUCKS.
He had so many opportunities to just walk away, but his pride destroyed every single good thing he had. His pride! Like Hank wouldn't have looked into Gus Fring unless Walt had just shut the hell up at dinner. He just infected the lives of so many good people like Jesse and all of his family members and Saul and Mike. Jesus. So bad. Walt is such a detestable character lol
Breaking Bad (spoilers if you haven't seen the show!!!)
im confused how in the train heist episode of Breaking Bad, Walt was ok with getting dirt in the methylamine AND with potentially getting watered down methylamine considering they even say that water is more dense than methylamine. Like i know the fly episode was a metaphor and he may not be entirely a stickler for contamination/dilution, but it seems odd.
Dirt in the methylamine seems like an issue. And the water replacing the methylamine WHILE they were removing methylamine is strange because the water would mix and fall to the bottom during the process so they're receiving dirty diluted methylamine (diluted by a percentage they cannot actually figure since the mixing isn't entirely thorough during the heist). I feel like that would kill the purity of their cook but idk shit about chemistry so I wonder if there's a distillation process or something that would remove the dirt from the methylamine.
my fiancée has to travel long distance for some business/personal things and im honestly so fucked up about it. i just hope she doesn't get COVID. we spent hours prepping PPE for her, i just hope it's enough. im so torn up right now. god i hope she'll be ok. i really really hope she doesn't get COVID.
