The universe is packed full with all manner of hoodwinks and ne'er-do-wells. Enjoy either a good conversation or good meal whenever you can. Hard to tell when the next one will show up.

Instance meta 

This is a pretty small instance that I set up for friends, but for me is mostly a gateway to keep in touch with friends elsewhere on the fedi, as well as to meet new folks.

Registration is generally open unless there's some bot fuckery going on.

There isn't really a "theme" here but I'm happy to welcome anyone who is good-natured. I sort of want this to be the next evolution of that message board where you used to just go to hang out.

Hey peeps, I'm Stu and I run straylight.expectnomore.net. It's a small instance where I constantly try to cajole old internet friends into joining, but it's also open to anyone looking for a home online.

I post mostly about my pets, music, game development, and home improvement. And also usually links to weird shit.

Inject that weird zoomer leftist energy straight into my veins.

My fedi timeline keeps getting weirder and weirder and papa bless you all for it.

This is awesome!

An aluminum foil wrap is the only protection you need around your feet. If you really want to stick it to Nike, steal some of their shoe boxes to make a rudimentary foot house, and wrap it in foil. This is what I will be doing exclusively from here on.

The effects of sleep deprivation while raising a newborn are massively overblown by cowards who are too afraid to peek behind the veil of reality. Shoes are psy op designed and deployed by the Nike corporation. Everyone is in on it. You ever seen a politician barefoot? Yeah, exactly. The first best way to control people is speech. The constitution has guards against that. Second best way? Control where people GO. No one is talking about this.

Once you realize you don't need sleep, your mind goes WILD.

Daughter let us sleep for 2 hours - we were up pretty much 24+ hours prior to it. I woke up from that nap more refreshed than I have from a full night's sleep in years. Absolutely wild.

american racists & fascists in the news 

"At Tuesday's hearing, Jill Sanborn, the head of the FBI's National Security Branch, told lawmakers that the threat posed by domestic violent extremists is "persistent and evolving." The "most lethal threat" from domestic violent extremists, she said, is posed by white supremacists and anti-government militias."

american racists & fascists in the news 

Of late, I've gone down a rabbit hole of podcasts and general internet readings on the threat of fascist white supremacists in the US, and sometimes I feel like a nut about it - like it just doesn't seem to register on most people's radars. It legitimately makes me feel crazy, like I'm no different from some infowars addict, freaking out about some perceived threat that's not as bad as I think.

And then I read stuff like this: npr.org/2022/01/11/1072123333/
