    I'm only just finding this out and testing if it's accurate, but I think I fuckin like... Pavloved myself into getting really sleepy when it's quiet and I can't hear anything much besides any sort of fan/ac/heater running?

    I started early when I was younger to sleep when an ac was running noisily by waiting til I was dead tired before turning it on and falling asleep in front of it. Now I can be super awake, maybe after a cup of joe or buzzing with energy about going somewhere fun, and if I'm waiting in a quiet room with audible air flow devices I just automatically start to doze off??? But only very specifically with air noises??? It's kinda funny

    Ngl tho it may just be that I'm constantly stressed and it's a calming and familiar sound

    a long shot but I figured this was a pretty good place to ask: does anyone have any recommendations for less (or even un-!) sexist and racist media with mechs? (is there a more appropriate thread for this?) I've really enjoyed counter//weight and EXTREME MEATPUNKS FOREVER, and I'm loving the aesthetics and music of gundam: war in the pocket but not the, like, one female character and ethnic stereotypes.

    I only have a very loose interpretation of your request, but you might could check out gatchaman crowds? I don't remember any overt sexism but it's not very clear if they're using alien small mech technology or if it's just a magic power up kinda situation but it's pretty great either way.

    Sorry I can't give you something closer to what you asked for

    Oh the mech (?) designs in this look really cute, I’m going to give this a try! Thank you for the recommendation - I’m looking for media in general but treasured a secret hope for tv I can watch with my flatmates :) Honestly I do not know where all of my mech enjoyment comes from but it’s at least 50% aesthetics so this seems to fit the bill

    Clothing problem solved, I'm currently budgeting to buy roughly 60% of shein.co.uk. Cute PJs with gender-neutral cuts and colours! Dresses which aren't floral! Soft grunge T-shirts in sizes which would fit people with waists wider than my bicep! All my co-Brits should check it out. I kinda love all the mangled English slogans on the tops, too.

    I’ve had good luck with Shein! Definitely fast fashion, but honestly pretty solid fast fashion, and a good array of sizes.

    I’m just sad they don’t seem to carry the infamous Danny DeVito crop top anymore. I have one and I genuinely love it, it’s very soft!

    I've been spending way too much on internet shopping lately and I need to cut back. On the other hand, I now have the most comfortable underwear and possibly only comfortable bra I've ever had, tons of nail art stuff and a box of false nails I'm practicing on because a) putting on and removing nail varnish too often can wreck your nails and b) I only have ten fingers, and a new chewy necklace!

    Larped yesterday for the first time in about six months, and traveled for it for the first time in, uh, a year and change. The guy I was riding with was selling off some of his old gear to new players. One of the things for sale was his old stick bag, a nice old army duffel, and there was a fight between three people over who got to buy it. Friend decided to hold an iron man (small tournament) to decide who deserved it most. One kill equals one point, but you have to call your name after each kill to get your point.

    Guy A got 15 kills, but kept forgetting to call his name, so he only got 10 points.
    Guy B got 14 kills and 14 points.
    Guy C got 13 kills and points, and he said that if he won he was going to give Guy A the bag.

    Guy A was pissing mad, but he learned a lesson!

    I forgot shudder was going to have new Vincent Price movies in their collection today. I wanted to watch The Masque of the Red Death for my birthday because it's my favorite, but I have to go to work soon and by the time I get home I'll be too tired to watch it.

    So I have some interesting data to report.

    I work for Uber Eats, and can kind of get the mood of my city based on how busy it is, how much people are tipping, and where they're ordering from. For some background, I live in a red state and have been at this job since January.

    Tonight was unusual. I was crazy busy all night, people tipped really well, and the roads and restaurants were nearly empty, except for other delivery drivers. All of that was more in line with how my job went during mandatory lockdown this spring. It's been slowly changing since then, with a lot of restaurants opening up and people losing the fear that made them hero worship service workers. The snap back was pretty much overnight.

    It was also noticeable that tonight I delivered exclusively to houses, mostly in nice areas and high end neighborhoods, and all fairly expensive food. No apartments, no bad neighborhoods, no hotels, no short range runs, and no cheap option restaurants. In short, I probably wasn't delivering to poor people or college students.

    Hypothesis: the republicans are suddenly scared of the virus. Trump has made it "real" for them, and they're self-quarantining en masse.

    I really want to play Genshin Impact, but it looks like the servers are down or something.

    My only complaint about this game is that I can't pet animals. Please let me pet the dogs!
