"calling it now: the next successful social media site will be a MUD with gardening instead of combat mechanics

people want to be in a place that they personally (alongside their friends) can exert effort to make better, even if only in small ways

we’re all tired of living in the virtual equivalent of shopping malls – common spaces we’re not allowed to shape to our own needs

we need shared virtual spaces that we can take care of as a way of taking care of each other

don’t know why it took me so long to realize this, or why it’s suddenly so clear now. maybe my gardening games stuff was always headed in this direction from the very beginning, & I just hadn’t made all the connections yet

current social media platforms have the mechanics all wrong.

y’know how people are always posting hot takes on here? it’s bc we have a psychological need for *mutual presence* with other people & if you’re not posting stuff there’s no way for others to acknowledge your existence

so there’s a constant pressure to be *saying things* – ideally things that provoke some sort of reaction – just to be reassured (by likes, RTs, replies, etc) that yes, you still exist as a social entity, & yes, other people also still exist

MMOs “work” because shared activity directed toward a common goal creates a sense of mutual presence without you having to *say* stuff all the time.

gardening, decorating etc (when implemented correctly) are activities of this type at which you also can’t meaningfully fail

in conclusion, we need a social media platform that lets you sit next to someone on a bench in the park & feed some goddamn birds"

Hungarian Cucumber Salad Recipe -
"Great salad to make when you have a ton of cucumbers coming out of the garden. We make this year round but we are real cuke lovers in this family. Let it sit for a few days in the fridge and it's even better! Great make-ahead dish for BBQs and parties."

15 minutes, 6 servings, 98 calories


2 large seedless English cucumbers, sliced thin
1 extra large onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
3 tablespoons white vinegar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste


1. Lightly toss cucumber slices, onion slices, and chopped dill together in a large bowl.
2. Pour vinegar over cucumber mixture; toss to coat.
3. Pour oil over cucumber mixture; toss to coat.
4. Season with salt and black pepper.

Cook's Note:

The reason you add the vinegar first and then the oil is because if the cukes get oil on them first the vinegar will not be able to soak in properly. This salad will also have some liquid that comes out of the onion and cucumber. This is a good thing! Do not pour it out.
