gun, knife, pills 

why yes, i am that kind of girl

Pinned post

Now that I'm actually letting myself honestly feel emotions instead of just hiding and burying them, I'm realizing that I fall in love incredibly easily. I start crushing on someone, and I end up just wanting to be there for them and support them any way I can.

Mastodon really is just a transbian dating site, huh?

I have in my hand a box of pills. They are days of life. I have to take one every day, and every day that I do not brings death a little closer.

Each pill costs about what I make in a day, as a mid-pay engineer. Without the government drug-plan I could not afford to live, one way or another. Either I would be unable to afford food and shelter, or I would be unable to afford the pills that stop the cancer from becoming aggressive.

Capitalism must be destroyed so that we may live

@lyncia Another half-mask respirator i've heard good things about is the GVS Elipse. It's pretty light and compact and has source control variants (including proper one-way airflow on the P3 filter model). The main issue is that the filters aren't readily sold most places, so you'd have to order replacements online.

@lyncia The separate filter on the exhaust port, like with the 3M, means you preserve one-way airflow, keeping moisture down. It does come at the cost of severely muffling your voice, though, as the 3M masks lack a voicemitter. My ST-S100 doesn't have this issue, despite my jury-rigged exhalation filter, thanks to its built-in voicemitter.

@lyncia There have been a few new SC masks released since the start of the pandemic, though, like the MSA Advantage 900 or the Dentec Comfort-Air. The Advantage 900 features a voicemitter diaphragm, so you aren't muffled as much when speaking. Those two masks, however, operate so you breathe in AND out through the main filters, meaning they can get really humid as moisture gets trapped inside the filters and humidifies incoming air.

@lyncia I'd recommend 3M or 3M-compatible masks, since you can find them and their filters basically anywhere. i'm also using 3M's model 604 filter on the exhaust port of the mask for source control, to filter my exhaled air so I don't spread anything I have. Most elastomeric masks AREN'T designed for source control, so this is something to watch out for.

@lyncia What are you looking for? Full- or half-face? I've been using a 3M 6200 (available at most hardware stores) with 7093 P100 filters for the past 8 months or so. My new mask is a Strong ST-S100 (sold in the US by Parcil as a PD-100), which takes 3M filters or its proprietary screw-on ones with included adapters. Pretty much any elastomeric mask with N95 filters is gonna give you good protection, with P100 filters being even better. There's also stuff from MSA, Dentec, etc.

@Lore for me it went "robot limbs would be cool" -> "i'd need cybernetic augmentations to my spine and torso to be able to use robot limb super-strength" -> "if i'm upgrading/replacing my whole body, might as well become a nanoswarm" -> "if i'm a shapeshifting mass of nanobots, what if i gave myself some tits haha jk unless...?"

O-ring acquired. It seems to hold up with minimal leakage under an impromptu positive pressure test, so I think I'm all set.

I was right, adding an exhalation valve filter was pretty easy. A 3M 604 with one of the mounting hooks broken off and a bit of fishing line, and it's good to go. Now all I need is an o-ring to put around the base of the port cover and this will be fully sealed for source control (selfie ec)

it looks like a 3M 604 exhalation valve filter will fit on it with a little modification, so the PD-100 can be given proper source control! also, it looks real good with the anorak vest that i waterproofed with beeswax. very post-apoc chic. (selfie ec)
