@neauoire I feel weird intuitively registering this as some sort of 3D simulation tutorial

I had to cut an old tire to make a shim (wood will rot, iron will rust… rubber is fine) but it's a heck of a job!

The angle grinder burn the rubber, so I had to use a hand-powered hacksaw.

@neauoire Tire Housing / Earthships are cool, if you want to look at something happy instead of sad.

@neauoire Sadly all that comes to mind is "we deserve to get wiped off this planet" and not much else... 😠

@neauoire @be car driver tried to get into a fistfight with me the other day

@be @neauoire that was after he tried to maim me with his car, of course, and ridiculed me for not driving a car.

fuck cars.

@neauoire I wish more of our trash would be visible instead of hidden in a corner.

Quite wonder what would happen if public services would go like "Nope, we only take what's recyclable or reusable" (just hypothetically).

@neauoire

I've seen some pyrolisys machines by which tires can supposedly be converted into diesel fuel. But I guess diesel isn't expensive enough to make it worth mining those tire piles.

@neauoire

Some idiots tried to make an "artificial reef" off the coast in my state (Florida) out of them a while back. The metal fasteners corroded in the salt water and ocean currents had their way with them, making a huge mess. Same as this but underwater. 🙄

@neauoire that rubber could service many millions of hacks & repairs.

Fucked up that this material used to be the basis of humyn slavery.
