Inspired by a dream: A mechanism for fast travel IRL is invented. You start a trip, and black out until you arrive. It feels as though no time has passed to you (that is, the trip *feels* instantaneous), but the normal time of the trip elapses while you travel.

Would you use it?

If anybody is interested, it’s actually super duper easy to host your own instance through masto.host . It’s a little bit of work to get started but really easy after

Go to their site, check out their different plans. The cheapest is like $8 / month & that’s definitely more than enough for a single user instance and even a few more. Here’s a blog post kind of explaining how their plans work since it’s not exactly just “how many users can this handle”

Memento mori 

(we live in a jar & think the lid's the sky
you're hoping for a savior on the cross outside
stars are just a million little fireflies
the sun's just a hole and it's the light outside)

if we take all these things
and we bury them fast
& we pray that they turn to seeds
to roots and then grass
It'd be alright
It's alright
it would be easier that way
