Man y'all ever think about how incredibly stupid it is that the internet is almost entirely financed by advertising. Like, imagine if busses were only paid for using the revenue from bus ads.

That's basically what we're doing right now, but with online.

@FerdiZ Ah. Thanks for the context, which I somehow didn't read the first time.
@FerdiZ But ideas in multiple places in the world means more people finding them. Greater access > single source. Also, different people voice ideas in different ways, which reaches different people. I'm not sure what your complaint's about.

I am visiting the city I spent my formative years in and moved away from over 17 years ago. Everyone I love has new best friends and doesn't like what I like. It's been obvious but never so clear as this weekend. I still love them all, but I secretly feel like the world is being aggressively destabilizing right now from the top down.

These pictures of Jupiter taken by the Juno spacecraft are fucking with my emotions; I remember avidly staring at grainy black and white photos of the planets when I was very little. Absolutely breathtaking #astronomy
