This surgeon got inspired by The Terminator to study and revolutionize "osseointegration" where bones and titanium are fused together for better prosthetics. Someone please make him watch one of the x-men movies that shows Wolverine's origin next, thanks cbc.ca/news/health/osseointegr

Actually, I saw Aeris die, looked at a guide to see how far I was in the game, saw it was about halfway, THEN uninstalled

I finally played Final Fantasy 7 with high-res graphics mod to see what the fuss was about, and I don't know why I expected something teens in 1997 enjoyed to be the least bit entertaining. Anyway, I saw Aeris die and immediately uninstalled. My game history homework is complete

If I eat a whole 1kg lasagna would that be too much

big respect for bike rack designers who had clearly never touched a bicycle but accepted the challenge anyway. Exhibit A: one in which you can only lock your bike up to the ends, and people would rather use a nearby street sign pole than even think about trying to use the rack for its apparently intended purpose.

Results of first workshop I’ve ever given: god-tier timing, ending two minutes before end of two hour time slot. Amount of knowledge shared needs a lot of improvement.

I buy one bottle of this stuff and I’m suddenly the Indiana Jones woman dumping it on elephants and taxi seats

Can extreme taxi BO completely negate fresh perfume/cologne? Asking for me, the guy having a GREAT sensory experience with my first non-sample fragrance

Camera didn't really capture how much of the interior it illuminates. oh well. Hopefully I don't have nightmares about being a deer run over by oncoming headlights

They forgot to turn off the tennis court lights tonight which might be a trend and, well, I’m just thankful I’m not a sensitive to light when it comes to sleeping.

Ending an extremely long work day importing this Unity package and repeating "Serenity now, serenity now" to myself

The latest embarrassing tab I have permanently open in my browser is Esquire’s “The 30 Sexiest Erotic Thrillers”. It’s a surprisingly good list of films I want to see, with a bunch of queer content that I’ve never heard of and are never really highlighted as part of the genre (Cruising, Stranger by the Lake, etc). Good work, Esquire esquire.com/entertainment/movi

Oh ok, he's heir to a hotel fortune. This makes a lot more sense. I would also live in luxury and make games that can't possibly sell well if I was a millionaire.

Watching Sliver and William Baldwin's character makes "computer video games". It's 1993 and he somehow works from home, in an expensive Manhattan apartment. The set dressing for his bookshelf is better than I was expecting to be honest

Friend Camp

The decentralized web is about trust. You should only join Friend Camp if you personally trust Darius Kazemi with your social media data. You probably only have that level of trust if we are IRL friends or have been internet friends for a long time. Generally speaking this is a small, closed community. In the end, Darius is the arbiter of what is allowed here. If you don't have a good idea of the kind of behavior that flies with Darius, again, you probably shouldn't join this instance. In the interest of specificity, we do have a code of conduct and privacy policy which you should read.

Friend Camp features several modifications that were requested by our users.

  • you can log in via any subdomain, which means you can log in to multiple accounts in the same browser session (for example, log in once on friend.camp and then as another user on alt.friend.camp)
  • they are no longer called "toots", they are now "posts"
  • if you have a locked account and you get a follow request, a reminder appears under your "post" button (on normal Mastodon mobile it is otherwise buried in a sub-menu and you might not see it for a long time)
  • the emoji dropdown is a neutral smiley face instead of the cry-laughing smiley
  • @mentions are rendered as "@user" for a Friend Camp user and "@user@domain" for remote users. This helps clear up when you follow two people who have the same username on different servers.
  • there is a "never ask me again" checkbox on the confirmation for clearing your notifications -- more info here
  • images in a CW'ed post are collapsed behind the CW. When you expand the CW, you can see the whole image immediately. more info here
  • When an mp3 link is in a post, we also embed an inline mp3 player. git commit here
  • 500 characters of profile text git commit here, requested by @deerful

Important Bit from the Privacy Docs

If you want decent privacy (the info doesn't leave this server), the only way to do that is to set your account to private, only accept friend requests from other friend.camp users, and only ever @ mention other friend.camp users. Once you start talking to people on other servers, all bets are off. Any private message you send to someone on another server could be looked at by the admin of a different server. This is kind of like email: if you are on a private email server, and you send an unencrypted email to a gmail account, congrats, Google now has the content of that email. But also, you do this every day, so, hey. The internet!
