Imagine a social media where you could not reply to a post for seven days. Every year you had the option of reducing the waiting period by a day, but it never goes below three days. Who would self-select out of such a social media, and what sort of exchanges might be reduced?
Well, this is not that social media. But you, yourself, can practice something like this for yourself.
Think of the great romances and fiery exchanges that happened via overseas post in the past.
“Bob” doesn’t lie; sure he’s going to screw you over, but not only has he told us again and again he’s going to do it, but he’ll tell us he’s doing it as does it. Most importantly, we like being screwed over by “Bob”. “Bob” can fuck me over as many times as he likes, because it’s honest, and unlike with the humans, it actually feels good.

From the traditional Venusian folk song sung in many a worker’s shanty to relieve the work a day woes of the Boiling Sulfur Mines. I understand that there was a cover version here on Earth at some point.

Check out the new SubG Kids album Dr. Katana007 and I recorded last weekend.
Synopsis Written By Dr. Katana007:
Hop into the wormhole that is the subversive reality soiled in saucership exhaust with the SubG Kids for a 50 min excursion on the Blueberry Butter Pecan Express. Always lo-fi, multi-genre, folk comedy improv escapism~
Every portrayal of life on Mars is correct, just regionally so. Canal systems, Pellucidar, Barsoom, Wells' angry red planet, all of them!
The reason we aren't seeing this in our probes to Mars is the same reason we aren't seeing a soul in a dissected body - the same reason we aren't seeing fairness when everyone everywhere wants it - and you know this to be a fact.
Insisting on the truth is having magic powers and still saying "oh yes, these ARE the droids you are looking for."
Whether you are a member of the Church of the SubGenius or... not... not YET a member of the Church of the SubGenius, this advice holds.
Regularly, get the contact information of the people you want to be in communication with and print it on paper. Don't rely on any social media, don't rely on any device. Paper has its own vulnerabilities, but it's a better bet than anything (anything!) digital.
Phone numbers, email, postal address, whatever works.
