The United States has uniquely dangerous roads. While the rest of the world keeps making cars and driving safer, we don’t just retain some of the world’s most deadly roads, but they’re actually becoming more dangerous. Not to drivers or passengers, but to pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. We allow vehicles to be designed without regard for how they will harm others, and industry has turned them into deadly weapons. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/11/27/upshot/road-deaths-pedestrians-cyclists.html

husband: Dinosaurs are such a disappointment. They got to be around for MILLIONS of years and achieved basically nothing, not a single pyramid even.

9yo: Maybe they figured out how to telepathically talk to each other and wasted all their time doing philosophy.

one of the things I was concerned with with more people moving to mastodon is how the SERP would handle it.. found my mastodon profile page on page 2 #seo #search #mastodon

The railroad workers may strike soon, which will decimate the US supply chain. Before you complain that you can’t find your favorite crackers or shampoo at the store, please acknowledge the reasons why rail workers are striking:

· The rank-and-file workers that run the trains have been on call, 24-7 for years due to the new normal of skeleton crews. Trains are running with crews of one or, in some cases, none as remote control (yes, you read that right) is now allowed. They can’t plan to attend their daughter’s birthday party or their brother’s wedding.

· Currently, under their present contract, they have zero paid sick leave. They must give 30 days notice for a doctor’s appointment or family emergency. The Presidential Emergency Board (PEB) contract terms proposed by the Biden admin gives them 1 paid sick day.

· Railroad companies’ profit is soaring. Rather than sharing that windfall with the rank and file, profit is paid out in stock dividends or used for stock buybacks (a practice that artificially boosts stock performance).
Railroad company profits (for 3-month periods, not yearly!):
- Union Pacific $1.84 billion in - 2nd quarter 2022
- BNSF $1.66 billion (up 10%) in 2nd quarter 2022
- CSX $1.11 billion (up 15%) in 3rd quarter 2022 on 2% more freight

One more thing – If the railroad workers do go on strike, Congress is likely to vote to force them back to work. Historically, these types of resolutions have seen high levels of bipartisan support because Congress is not pro-worker, they are classists that protect the interests of Wall Street and the stock ownership class above all else.

I've created a small, incomplete, list of instances with moderators of color.

The list and suggestions became to much to keep up on my own, so here is a Google document, https://docs.google.com/document/d/12pTmSMpq8lMYyYlHT25DgTmdMmE6ysUyRHGiq-E4XdQ/edit?usp=sharingp

I think some people struggle with maintaining a consistent spiritual practice because they limit themselves to doing what *other* people do instead of developing a practice that they find personally fulfilling.

When people ask me what they should do, I encourage them to think of which spiritual practices they actively enjoy and feel benefit their relationship with the Divine the most. Maybe they love to sing to their Gods, make art, meditate, use prayer beads, scry and divine, or something else entirely. Basing one's practice around activities that bring joy and productive personal development tends to make sticking to a devotional routine much easier, in my experience!

setting up new social media accounts like voldemort creating horcruxes: one going away won't do me in you'll have to destroy them all if you want to be rid of me for good

Folks, please leave mastodon.online and mastodon.social. Those instances have atrocious moderation. More and more instances are defederating from them every day.

I know it's a pain to migrate to another server when you only just moved from the birdsite. But it will be worth it.

I wanted to share an excerpt from the book I'm writing on spirit work:
"The question I get most often is why would a spirit want to aid us instead of hindering us? Think of it like this, you yourself are a spirit, you are part of nature and your own tempest. Those who aid us are likely very much like us. We are drawn to the things that would heal us or remind us of our own power as they are drawn to us. That being said, what you gravitate to will be for you and you alone. Societally were taught cultural expectations of what is good and what is bad for us. Eventually, you’ll uncover people are drawn to drastically different things, when it comes to what heals and empowers us. What heals one can harm another. Moderation in everything is truly the key. Spirit work requires a key understanding of yourself and what your personal alignments are.
A few easy ways to determine this. Do you feel more alive at night or during the day? When you think about the weather or a specific season which conditions make you feel alive? What are you favorite scientific topics? Does being by a fire, getting in a warm shower or bath, laying barefoot by a tree, or feeling the wind in your hair make you feel alive? Answering these questions will give you a much clearer answer to what that is." -Ea Mar Ameth

Here comes Nit.
Nit (Neith) is a primordial Creatrix. They are sometimes third gendered and can be refered to as the 'Mother of Mothers and Father of Fathers.' This relates to their power as a creator who comes from the Nun. Nit is also equated with the feminine Nun, Naunet. More connections as a primordial creatrix.
Nit is the mother of Sobek, Tutu, Ra. They have a few regional consorts including Set and Khnum-Ra.
In their mythos, it was Nit who was called upon to act as the judge between Set and Heru-sa-Aset (Horus the Younger) to hear their cases for their right to be king. In one of Nit's cult centers, Sais, there was a system for teaching healing. And specifically OBGYN specialties.
Nit is part of the tri-aspected deity Nit-Nethet-Seshat (or any order of these three). Meaning they can be part of the other two in a hidden or quieter way.

Over all Nit is a power house deity. They are old. Predynastic. Narmer, the man who is said to have conquered and united Ancient Egypt, was husband to a queen of considerable rank named Nithotep. So Nit has been there since the beginning.

Please - if you see a post that's harmful to anyone don't post a screenshot and thereby amplify the thread. Direct message the admins/mods of your server instead. I just woke up to reading a death threat. That's not cool. If nothing else at least put it behind a CW. #report #block# #FediverseEtiquette #Compassion
