Last year's fad: fidget spinners
This year's: things built to last
(pass it on, maybe we can trick them)

>This year's fad: Things Built to Last

Byebye, Birdsite and Facial Tome

Next year's: we don't need a new fad, the one from last year is still going.

@MightyPork No dice, it just gets turned into artificially aged clothing and furniture that LOOKS like it lasted a long time.

@MightyPork hey fidget spinner can be built to last


But where are they now? all the fidget spinners in the world laid end to end would circle the planet three times: they will last, they will outlive us all. In millennia to come they will persist as the stubborn and puzzling remains of our ancient plastic civilisation.

@katebowles @MightyPork

Year 3714: experts agree that they are on the verge of discovering the secret behind the ubiquitous devices the ancients obviously used to generate perpetual motion.

@djsundog @MightyPork

Same year: scientists discover entire barrier reefs of fidget spinners, washed out to sea and substituting for dead coral, spinning gently in ocean currents. Species adapt.

@MightyPork let's start small. maybe we try seedbombs again?

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.
