I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Greta Gerwig's genius wit unfolds itself on their movie screens. What fools... how I pity them. 😂
And yes, by the way, I DO have a Barbie tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only - and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 emotional IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎
As a consequence, people who dislike the Barbie movie truly ARE unsophisticated - of course, they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the satire in Barbie's existential realization of her own artificiality, which itself is a cryptic reference to Jean Baudrillard's concept of hyperreality.
There's also Barbie's nuanced exploration of her own objectification, which is deftly woven into her characterization - her personal philosophy draws heavily from feminist literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these commentaries, to realize that they're not just funny - they say something deep about SOCIETY.
i want a story of a post-apocalyptic Dad who used to be a chemist before everything went to shit, so now all he's doing is scavenging with the goal of being able to produce estrogen for his daughter
i dont care about how logically, they shouldn't have the equipment nor products to be capable of producing it, i just want this wholesome story to exist
In 1982, a report was sent out to Exxon management which showed that burning fossil fuels and clearing forests was causing increased CO2 in the atmosphere, and projected that global temperatures could rise above 3°C by the end of the 21st century
What is the collective noun for climate tipping points? An exxon? Nobody knows. Whatever it is that joke doesn't feature in this cartoon but there are many others.

I love the whimsy of these apps, and the fact that Mastodon’s API and openness supports the ability to create them. Looking at a community-contributed patch to get them added to the website, too. #retrocomputing #mastodonAPI https://wedistribute.org/2023/07/mastodon-retro-clients/
