100 years ago some communists invented the game which would become Monopoly, to demonstrate the flaws of capitalism. That backfired somewhat.

Undeterred, they're trying again with Class War, a card/board/dice game which pits workers against capitalists.

I played as workers twice and really enjoyed getting trounced both times. Maybe, like Monopoly, the game is rigged...

We should try to put forward decent arguments for our opinions, and avoid discussion with people who do not do the same.

Here is a classification system:

Stopped using hellbird and faceoff 2 weeks ago and now have 4 books on the go! Maybe connected...

This month Thailand legalized growing and selling cannabis for recreational use:

"Cannabis growers have to register on a government app called PlookGanja, or grow ganja, another nickname for the spikey-leafed plant. Nearly 100,000 people have signed up to the app, said health ministry official Paisan Dankhum."

Great work #Groundswell, now the whole of NZ knows you're all full of shit!

You're out to protest and oppose something that YOU HAVE NOT EVEN BOTHERED TO UNDERSTAND!

you bunch of whinging whiney asshats.

Profiles and posts on Mastodon and the Fediverse have public versions you can share with people who aren't on the Fediverse.

To see the public version of a profile, click on the profile picture. This will open the public version of the profile in a new tab.

To see the public version of a post, click on the datestamp below the post. This will open the public version of the post in a new tab.

These "public pages" are handy for sharing with friends, because they don't require logging in to see them.

Public pages are also very useful for something else:

If you paste the URL address of a public page into the search box on Mastodon, and then search for it, the post or profile will appear within your server. This is handy if you cannot find a post or person by searching, but you know they exist on another server.

Searching for a URL like this forces your server to "notice" the profile or post.

It also works with URLs from PeerTube, PixelFed etc.

My darling #NZTwits, a reminder that after the initial burst of energy as you explored Mastodon, you'll be drawn back to Twitter. You're addicted, I'm addicted, Twitter wants us to stay that way by making us endlessly upset.

Make a mindful effort to pop in here once a day at least to toot something, or boost something. You're actively building community now, and it matters for the future.
