So I've been thinking a lot about microclimate engineering as a way of making communities more resilient against climate change. This kind of thing can be pretty easily done on a small scale (bodies of water which passively cool the surrounding area, etc), but there's no reason to stop there.

popped back on to Twitter for a second just to see how things were, and honestly it's impressive the degree to which that site is cannibalizing itself. Its rejecting all the good posters like a bad organ transplant.

reality has been overwritten by the ideals of neoliberal capitalism. It's like A Roadside Picnic meets Sorry To Bother You. Gravity doesn't work sometimes and an animatronic ronald reagan is yelling at you about how its morning in america and the big account is due monday. Every few months the economy gets reset due to yottainflation. Brands will dox you for epic clapbacks and send hired assassins to your house. Jean Baudrillard is alive again, he's roaring pissed, and he has power armor.

You live in a shipping container that has been renovated and turned into storage compartments which have been turned into museums which show how people of the 21st century briefly had a minihome craze and you're currently squatting in one of the displays. There's no running water and the beds are made of styrofoam. Your landlord is a guy in a polyester suit with a sawed-off shotgun who showed up one day and who said he was the landlord and he demands a pint of your blood every week.

Daily life becomes terrifying neon branded simulacra shitshow in which potentially anything could be real. Your job is destroying empty cardboard boxes with your fists but only the orange-red boxes not the yellow-red boxes. Destroying the wrong boxes means you are instead paid in HellScrip™ for the next two weeks or until you file a triple appeal with your archmanager who is an enormous satanic plush dog with a camera in it and no actual sentience.

hmmm i should write a surreal post-cyberpunk kafkaesque dystopia in which the concept of america is bought by Hell™ which is an exouniversal private company because of course it is

I'm reading about the People's Yellow Pages and honestly this is such an incredibly good idea. Why doesn't this still exist.

Also the show should be an ARG so if you actually go to the places and kill the people in real life you get to win some sort of contest

Idk if it would be legal to read off their personal addresses but we could probably get around that. Just give the GPS coordinates or some shit.

Technically this would be legal because most of them are public figures and this is a "parody"

There should be a TV show that's set in the year 2106, and it's like nazi hunters but it follows a group of people who hunt down and kill the CEOs and lobbyists responsible for climate change, and also it should use their real names and faces.

"Hey so apparently the ocean is full of huge fuckin monsterfish. What do you say we load a bunch of drunken sailors into one of our extremely fragile wooden ships and go try and kill one."
"Yeah alright, I've heard worse ideas"

Whales are the closest thing you're going to get to Kaiju and we literally hunted them for a while. They didn't even come to us, we went to them.

Reading about whaling is wild because it makes you realize there was a whole ass industry centered around hunting literal fuckin sea monsters for a while there

I definitely think this is a result of the fact that "not having kids" is considered a socially valid life choice for the first time in like, ever maybe.

And I think that's a good thing! Raising kids is mad hard, and not everyone can do it. Sometimes you're just not equipped to physically, financially, and emotionally support another human being for 18+ years. And that's fine! Better to realize that now instead of fucking up some future person's whole life.

Honestly I really think it'd be nice to run this instance as a co-op but that would require having more than two active users
