Enjoying exploring the #gopher network ... I wonder if we could set up a gopher server to be accessible via RF / #hamradio ? I know there are allocations of IP addresses specifically for packet radio ... could be an interesting project.

I wonder if calling them ‘conspiracy *theorists*’ lends too much weight to their shenanigans.

Like, there are actual, legit theorists in other fields doing amazing work.

What if we called them something like ‘conspiracy peddlers’ instead? The Oxford definition seems to match up pretty well. toot.cafe/media/G5bVW4kSaa0Sla

The Reason Many Ultra-rich People Aren’t Satisfied With Their Wealth

“The sensation of ‘being well-off,’ is not about fulfilling a childhood dream of buying a sailboat or something; feeling wealthy is about comparison with others in your reference group.

Society seems to hinge on a set of assumptions. Things which everyone is expected to have. Three in particular. A functioning bank account (ideally with a debit card). A fixed, permanent address. A mobile phone number.

It makes it difficult for those of us who often slip through the cracks. Because believe me, if you find yourself without even one of these, a lot in society becomes rather more troublesome.
