Being stuck in a pod by yourself makes it kinda difficult to get intimate with someone in the real world.

Most cultures stand out but American culture doesn't because basically everywhere has some sorta American influence.

Maybe not the highest quality shower thought, but I had been a long day.

  1. Reddit sells its api for high and is about to go for an IPO, its economy bases entirely on the data made by the users/communities. It is the work of the public, get robbed by a small group of individuals. A living example of capitalism.

  2. Fediverse isn't enough to secure the publicity and usage of public data. What if the host of Lemmy instance also releases the snapshots of all the posts and modlogs, everyday, in the form of bittorrent? Only by doing so, we are safe from the host erasing public knowledge and data brokers.

Cats can live for 20+ years. Maybe there are a few left that were born in the 90s and are just chilling.

If a machine is never 100% efficient transforming energy into work because part of the energy is converted into heat, does it mean an electric heater is 100% efficient? @showerthoughts@lemmy.world

Being autistic in our world means for me that I have to behave a certain way, speak a certain code and keep certain aspects of myself hidden or risk to get attacked, verbally or physically. I repeat this over and over, day in day out.

Meanwhile I am looking forward to hosting another game of dnd this saturday and it just occured to me that our reality is sad and pathetic while turning to the internet and people outside this oppressive „society“ is like looking at a piece of art. Popping colors and various shapes and interesting objects to behold.

It might be seasonal depression speaking here but it was really palpable right now.

Anyone relate?

The short version of the Unix philosophy is basically, "Do one thing, and do it well".

Michelle Rodriguez basically plays the same basic character in every movie: tough girl / tomboy who doesn't take crap from anyone, usually wears a tank top, and dies about as often as Sean Bean.

And it's not a bad thing.

While I haven't seen every film she's done, I have seen a lot of them, and she gives a stellar performance every time.

So she may play the "same character" over and over, but she does it very well.

How do I sell my rights to social security benefits? How can I buy someone else's?

The business could be marketed as a "Social Security Advance" and charge a percentage.

Maybe now that traditional memes are well on the way to being drowned in a sea of low-quality propaganda made by idiots, the cool kids will move on to text posts.

If we're supposed to be able to understand math as easily as a language, we should be able to read it from left to right like a language.
Yes, I know there's lots other languages that go right to left or top to bottom, but the point is you don't have to go jumping around the page or sentence figuring out which word should be read first based on which characters it contains.
We put the first word first, then the second word second, etc.
Why can't we just write equations in the order they were meant to be solved?

The world has always been going the shit and will continue to go to shit until the end of time. It takes mountains to influence the tides of nations. You should take the responsibilities you can bear, but no more.

I heard someone say this in a video recipe, followed by way more cheese than you should eat at once. It occurred to me that the phrase means ample, not nutritious.
