thank you for explaining :)

sorry you have been dealing with health issues. it is awesome that you’re beginning to enjoy math again! i don’t know nearly as much about math as you do but i find it fascinating. everyone i know irl hates math so no one shares in my excitement over learning new things

various subgenres of extreme metal

i’m trying to imagine what “extreme” metal sounds like. i bet to people who hate metal it all sounds extreme

Politically I identify as pretty far left, but I don’t have good knowledge of theory.

theory is so awesome. it really helps with understanding why the world is the way it is. if you ever feel like reading more i have a ton of recommendations (as im sure most anyone over at lemmygrad does)

i’m missing something here. what is the point?

a lot of people deal with this and it can be very hard to walk away but it does get easier with practice

anyone who calls an anarchist a “fucking marxist” is not worth debating in the first place because they clearly have no clue what words mean.

i think it may help you to try a few things.

  1. walk away from “debates” that are just arguments
  2. try to keep a bit of emotional detachment during debates by turning the person’s argument around on them. you can do this by posing questions which will lead them to your point. be careful not to use this often on people you are close to though, there is a reason people hated talking with socrates
  3. instead of debates, have conversations. debating can be a great tool but you talk of wanting more action. you can get regular people to better understand ideas by explaining them simply, in a way that is relatable to them. and it becomes easier for you to help if you find out from them what they need.

this reads exactly like satire lmao

To a bemused driver with several sandwiches wrapped in tin foil who asked if he could maybe surrender the meat and keep just the bread, one customs officer replied: “No, everything will be confiscated. Welcome to the Brexit, sir, I’m sorry.”

thanks for sharing.

i find your art very interesting. there are elements to each piece that are dynamic but that flow is halted. at first it seemed like it represented trying to find a way to block unwanted change, but after studying it further it seems the obstacle is the external force, not the movement

i find that i am increasingly more nostalgic for the earlier days of the web. and though i do not miss 2000s music, i do like your take on scarborough fair :)
