I don't know what to make of this... The delivery driver put my hard drives... In the fridge?! Because the box says new egg?!?!

@chuck eggs don't even need to be in the fridge... unless we're maybe in the Jurassic Park world... :blob_grinning_sweat:

OMG! Can you sum up, plz? I can't read! I'm European! HALP! D:

@eloisa @packbat TL;DR - Americans have a problem with salmonella and chicken shit on eggs. so please refrigerate your eggs

@chuck @eloisa Specifically, the United States deals with salmonella by requiring eggs be cleaned instead of by requiring the chickens to be vaccinated, and cleaning the egg removes a protective layer on the shell that the European food system relies on to protect the contents from contaminants.

@packbat @chuck @eloisa I read somewhere the protective layer is washed even on european eggs, but they re-apply an artificial one. so in theory at least there isn't any chicken shit on them. But we refrigerate them anyway so idk

@MightyPork @packbat @chuck in my country it comes filthy. We have to wash them right before use in the kitchen. :blob_dizzy_face:

BE WARNED this instance will absolutely be unstable at times. It will 10000% be used for experimenting with settings and tweaks to Mastodon. So the place may experience outages, not federate reliably with the rest of the world, have posts go missing, or other technical faults. As such it's meant to be a chill, maybe kinda playful place. FOR BREAKING THE SOFTWARE. Time to see what we can do with this thing! Time to ˥∀IƆOS HƆ⊥I˥⅁

the code is here

This instance also has domain level blocks on numerous others, using the block list found here .

followbots from other instances will be blocked. please report them

Some rules

  • Do not engage in harassment of any kind.
  • Racist, sexist and other oppressive slurs will get you suspended, even in non-public conversations.
  • You can post porn and nudity, but you must use the nsfw flag and do not post on the public timeline or you will be silenced (ask around how to make unlisted posts)
  • try to be kind
  • no non-sentient bots until further notice
  • no shit that's illegal in Canada
  • animated gifs should always be marked sensitive/NSFW and identified as animated gifs (for now let's say just putting 'gif' in the text of the toot is sufficient), because they can cause serious problems for people

some guidelines

  • stuff here is impermanent but i still want this to be as safe a space as we can reasonably make it. let's keep common triggers and angry/ranty/grumpy toots behind CWs
  • free speech maximalists can kindly fuck off. there are instances where that is a priority. this is not one of them.
  • all languages are welcome!

the privacy stuff in the 'terms' isn't what it should be, but no time to change it yet. this instance's data will not be sold or traded or whatever.
