Help me identify this sci-fi novel!
- I read it as a paperback in the late 90s. It was on the new arrivals shelf at my local library
- Male author, I'm pretty sure. I dunno if it's someone notable or not.
- Main premise involves a human who studies other planets' cultures & uses some future tech that allows him to change his body so it's just like the ones of the alien culture.
- He does that repeatedly. There might be risks from this?
- In the end, rather than going to back to his human form, he decides to make his body a fusion of parts from the various cultures.
- Maybe he kinda takes a hoop-like shape and rolls away??
I've been trying to figure this out for yearsssss!
I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.
yelling about hillary clinton's transphobia
if a male politician said that sharing a dressing room with a gay man made them uncomfortable they'd rightly be seen as a homophobe. Shit like this is blatantly inexcusable and should be called out for what it is mid interview.
Remember, trans issues might be abstract for you, reading this, but you've got at least ONE masto friend who it's very non-abstract for. We've always been here. Fight for us. We did the same for you.
Let's do another round on #Ramayana questions. One never exhausts this subject, truly.
Last time, I commented on modern retellings, Rama's birthplace, English translations of Valmiki's text, Shambuka's story, and the number of versions of the story.
If you want to learn OOP, start with Lua. Yes, it uses prototypes, not classes, but that's a Good Thing. And it teaches you important stuff, like how a method is just an object member that happens to be a function, which receives a (hidden) `self` argument automatically if called with a certain syntax.
anyone know any good trans literature? fiction or not - I want to read some in-depth experiences, to figure out a bit more about my own.
I liked Nevada, and more like that would be cool.
A person in a place. Doing stuff. Talk to me about media (books, movies, games, whatever), life, queer things, or anything else interesting!
