    yeah, here is the tweet in question:

    this was supposed to be a clever response to a tweet that said americans don’t need assault weapons

    i mean on the one hand he's being a smartass, they don't live in groups that large. on the other hand, feral hogs are a genuine problem in the south. coyotes you can at least run off with loud noises or flashes if they don't have rabies. feral hogs will keep coming until they are dead, and they're the size of small bears, so your .22 varmint gun will not do jack shit to them.

    also, 'assault weapons' is an emotional manipulation phrase, it has no technical meaning. no civilian needs a rifle that can do burst fire or full auto fire, and that's usually what people think that phrase means, but since it doesn't actually have a real definition, it gets fudged around to mean 'anything that looks real scary when a brown person has one'. there are still a lot of places in the US where life is a whole lot easier and/or safer if you have a large caliber hunting rifle and are not prevented from using it. i'm pretty tired of liberals on the coasts completely writing off rural populations as being cousin-fucking gun nuts just because we're not eager to embrace rhetoric about how the sole purpose of firearms is for black boys to shoot each other over drugs. some winters you need a fuckin caribou, ok? ok. this is my relaxed face.

    edit: and when new york and los angeles are shaping the discourse, in total ignorance of what rural life is, or what rural people want, FUNNY THING ABOUT THIS, it turns out to mean middle and upper class people are shaping the discourse in ignorance of what poor and working class people want. gun control is a prime example of that gap.

    ftr i am a rural person, and my family owns guns, and i'm not sure if it was intentional, but being condescended to over a meme and implied that i am a "liberal on the coast"is entirely unhelpful.

    sorry if i gave the impression i was talking to you, i didn't mean to. i was taking the opportunity to vent about the kind of nonsense i run into in gun discourse, and particularly the clusterfuck that twitter gun discourse is. it's like a slapfight between that guy and the "the only purpose of a gun is murder" people and i just get a lil bit explody about it. but i was asploding at people who are not here.

  8. I have... strong feelings about gun control that aren’t fully justified but idk what to do with them.

    When I was a kid, we had a bullet go through our window while we were out for the day. There’s been multiple shootings at the mall I went to when we lived there. I should never have a gun because I would be a risk to myself if I had one. I see customers come in on rare occasion with holsters on their belts and it scares me whether they’re police or not. And of course we have shootings every single day in this country.

    But I recognize guns do have legitimate use. For hunting large game. For killing or scaring off aggressive animals. For self defense, even.

    But literally this week we’ve had multiple shootings, and it’s fucking Tuesday.

    perhaps this is a better topic for a less general thread, though

    Resetting my laptop to factory settings because I’ve been having issues with it and I think my father fucked it up somehow. Not sure what he did but hopefully this will fix it.

    If I were to do a test stream on twitch would anyone be interested in watching?

    Ok I was streaming for a second but the game I’m playing is full screen and I can’t see the Streamlabs obs behind it. How do I play a game and see my chat at the same time?

    honestly? I have just-the-chat open on phone when i do screenshare streams on discord and i know you can do that on twitch too

    So I might have to do it on twitch instead of Streamlabs then?

    idk, i've never done anything with streamlabs! I just figured it might have that kind of functionality if it has a mobile app?

    i know twitch lets you pop the chat out from the browser so you can have the windowed game and the chat underneath or next to it, that's how i do it though it's a bit inelegant. no idea about streamlabs sadly but worth looking for?

    Ok I think I’ve got it working but I still can’t tell my twitch channel is 25sarah

    The sound is working but the screen isn’t and I can’t seem to figure out twitch

    Wow my volume was set way too low on my first stream, and half the time my screen was dark? Not sure why? Also the window was too small. I think it might take me awhile to get the hang of this.

    Verily a very ineffective hitman

    If technical issues don’t take out your entire first stream on any platform, you’re doing just fine. Congratulations, and I wish you much success!
