I want to quit facebook (and instagram) for good. What are some strategies that people have for keeping up with local events without it?

I'm just so fucking tired of negativity

I spend a lot of time thinking and talking to people about media. I used to think I was above pop culture but then I grew up.

Anyway the common thread I see in most places is that nothing is ever good enough. You can't even be excited about things without someone telling you that you're wrong.

Fuck that.

Enjoy things.

Recognize problematic elements, of course, but don't ignore everything that doesn't 100% match your worldview.

Enjoy things.

"It is now possible to capture images from the ground at visible wavelengths that are sharper than those from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope... To compensate for the blurring effect of the Earth’s atmosphere, four brilliant lasers project columns of intense orange light into the sky, creating artificial 'Laser Guide Stars'. Adaptive optics systems use the light from these β€œstars” to determine the turbulence and calculate corrections 1000 times per second." πŸ”­ eso.org/public/news/eso1824/

Human systems changed and broken /by/ humans can and will be repaired and changed back and fixed by other humans. And kinder monsters, and just now stirring dormant dragons, the better beasts of our natures.
