When I was a kid my dad took me to this pizza place called Banchero all the time in an area called Avenida Corrientes in Buenos Aires. Since he collects old books, he used to take me around the dozens of bookstores in that street, and then we'd eat some pizza at the counter (if you eat at a table the pizza is actually worse, though I have no clue why)
Ever since I moved away from there, I've returned at least once a year to visit my family, and I made a sort of pilgrimage to that pizza place. I've tried others but they all fall short in some aspect, so I can only conclude that it's the best :p

As you can see, this pizza has a very tall, fluffy dough, a bit of sauce and a lot of cheese, all the way to the edges. It's served on top of a chickpea flour cake called fainá (or farinata). This style of pizza is very unorthodox from an italian perspective, and also from an american perspective. I guess the closest type of pizza to this is Detroit-style, but it's missing the farinata, which italians eat as a snack (never with pizza from what I've read)

Do you have any places you revisit regularly, or any other ritual-like activities that are like landmarks in your life?

Whenever I feel suicidal I usually rewatch something I like. Usually Serial Experiments Lain or End of Evangelion, but last time it was Cowboy Bebop (basic taste, I know). That way if I do it, I at least got to experience my favourite pieces of media one final time. The same with when I have to do something that makes me anxious, but that's more to uplift me. There was a time where I constantly had to go somewhere that made me anxious so I would watch End of Evangelion every time before going and listen to my favourite music beforehand.
Also there's this kebab shop that I can only go to in the city centre so whenever I go into the city centre for any reason I make sure to eat there. It's expensive as fuck but god damn they make god-tier kebabs. That's probably more like what you meant.

Doesn't have to be food related. My example is just the only real structure that I can remember across my entire life

I immerse in the "Nekoversez (my headcanon fantasy world) when I lay on my bed meditating, pretty much everyday.

Do you mind telling more about Nekoversez? I am a maladaptive daydreamer, so I enjoy hearing about other people's daydreams and fantasy worlds.

nope UwU, sorry but that's privacy.

Edit: I might write down my worldbuilding one day and share it here. It's "Nekoverse" not "Nekoversez" anyway, sorry for the typo.

Nah, it's fine, I wouldn't share most of my daydreams anyway.

Not as specific as some of yalls, but I try to listen to at least one new(2me) album every day. Helps me to expand my music taste. Plus, sitting down and listening to music is dope af.

  • Junious:
    Indeed, the impact will be felt across the entire services economy: and we don't even need humans for their political biases anymore from what ChatGPT will and won't write so far. Then again, as Twitter perhaps shows, only a core of white-collar workers are needed to actually run firms, and the rest can go help rebuild the UK or US army, or such-like. What an irony that would be: the people who patronisingly told blue-collar workers to 'learn to code' being told to become blue-collar workers, because that's just progress.

    What happens once they teach that atlas bot to do manual labor? It's already good for moving boxes and doing summersaults.
  • Pangolin:
    There's a lot of manual jobs that can be automated. And machines can be built in a modular way to where you could build a bot repair bot.
  • Junious:
    problems is people can run on low grade, easily obtained hydrocarbons (ie sugar water) where as machines rely on refined hydrocarbons and expensive electricity
  • Junious:
    thus energy source versatility and cost becomes the primary factor in who does what
  • Junious:
    and availability, we are entering a new age of scarcity
  • Junious:
    get a robot to run on phytoplankton exudates and crickets the way a human can and there is some hope for ai automation of manual labor
  • Pangolin:
    Ya but it's expensive more for political reasons than legitimate scarcity. They're trying to strangle the fossil fuel industry and failing.
  • Junious:
    they are trying to strangle it because the usa is crossing the horizon of no longer being top dog in energy production since its tapped out everything it has. an energy revolution is required to keep the usa at the top. otherwise the usa is rapidly becoming a second fiddle in a fossil fuel powered world
