I've always been fascinated by the first contact scenario of aliens. In nearly every depiction of it, including the golden records we sent to space, we say “we come in peace”. But does that give the right signal? If we know the word 'peace', we know the word 'war', which means we have actually encountered war in some way. That says a lot about humanity. It sounds like “I'm not a crook”, which is easy to interpret as a red flag saying you really are a crook. Because why else say such a thing?

Hello everyone! Does anybody know a good pixelfed server that's furry-oriented where I can upload art? I am aware of the image upload capabilities of Mastodon, but it seems like it's not entirely suited for building and managing a large collection of art.


This instance is focused around the furry community, and is open to anyone interested in it. It's open to all fluffies and scalies ! If you like meow, consider donating something via paypal or Liberapay
