We are all stardust.

That oxygen you breath? That comes from dying massive stars, ending their light in a supernova.

The iron in your blood? Some massive stars dying, but mainly white dwarfs, the leftovers of dwarf stars like our own Sun, exploding.

The gold ring on your finger? Mostly merging neutron stars, leftovers from supernovae.

Not only is "goblin mode" the Oxford dictionary's word of the year, but it completely thumped #/IStandWith - a mainstay of transphobic birdsite posters - in the public vote. I'm declaring a resounding victory on the side of all the beautiful goblins in this round of the culture war.

my teen just referred to something i'd set up as "brain easy" because she'd blanked on the word "intuitive" but i understood perfectly because her term was so brain easy

Awesome essay about Spritely Goblins by @garbados, and the experiences of coming to understand why it's interesting: https://garbados.github.io/my-blog/conceptual-intro-to-spritely-goblins.html

> It seems like a different order of sorcery than the likes to which I have grown stubbornly accustom. What it makes easy should be a decade of work.

Rather urgent mutual aid request, no income, disabled 

So I haven't had much luck getting the work I need so I have to do a mutual aid post,

But I need around $300 fairly urgently. I'm over a week overdue on a loan payment and like $10 in my bank account. Things are really difficult right now and they're not going to get much easier.

Any amount or boosts would help immensely.

My PayPal is rhyspass@gmail.com
Venmo and cashapp are both @ xenocat

Anything a philanthropist has ever given the world "as a gift"

We should have had by rights

They don't deserve thanks any more than a thief would if he returned the stuff he stole
