So happy to have finally deleted my Reddit account. The fediverse is now my permanent home 😊 !

[-] imaginelizard 3 points 1 year ago

Glad that you're here permanently!

I got permanently banned on reddit for making 2 haram jokes on r/all so I might as well be here T.T

[-] siewyuk 1 points 1 year ago

What haram joke? Now I'm curious

[-] dukeGR4 1 points 1 year ago

I said “din du nuffin” and got banned for 7 days. Post was about a bunch of BLM Rioters commiting crimes and a bunch of people defending them or sth I left that ironic remark.

The other one there was a very gay but funny thread. Everyone saying haram stuff like explicit description of sucking each other off on a meme sub and I said “that’s haram! Stone that b*tch!” I was permanently banned for inciting hatred and violence against marginalised communities.

Joined my first board game session yesterday, and I have no regrets. Perfect for nerds like me.

[-] IkanCelupTepung 1 points 1 year ago

What sort regret are you thinking of before going?

[-] Naomikho 2 points 1 year ago

No la... no regrets is a just a saying XD going was totally worth it

[-] Paracetamol 2 points 1 year ago

Which board games did you play yesterday?

[-] Naomikho 2 points 1 year ago

I can't remember the name of the first one but it's kind of a pvp battle game, and the second game was cryptid. I love both of them haha, and my bad habit of hoarding cards until the right moment shot me in the foot when my deck of cards got stolen lmao.

[-] Naomikho 1 points 1 year ago

Very fun. I definitely want to play that one again!

[-] weecious 1 points 1 year ago

If you're going for the next one, let me know! Lizzy and I would love to meet you.

[-] Naomikho 1 points 1 year ago

I'll let you guys know if I'm going!

They didn't believe me when I was actually sick because I took an MC just after Raya Haji. I inevitably infected 5 of my classmates with the flu.

Anyways got nothing to do today, what movie do y'all recommend?

[-] Naomikho 3 points 1 year ago

That sucks. Now your company tasted their own medicine lol. My friends have been enjoying the latest Indiana Jones movie, even for first time watchers.

[-] dukeGR4 3 points 1 year ago

just watched Mission Impossible it's good.

[-] hyattpotter 2 points 1 year ago

[-] hyattpotter 2 points 1 year ago

[-] OldManGenghis 1 points 1 year ago

My partner wants to start vlogging and asked me to research cameras. I’ve gone full frame for a long time and have a Fuji X-Pro as my “daily” so haven’t really bothered with entry level APSCs.

I’m sort of impressed with the options available on the market for those just starting out. May I say it’s probably the only type of product that is not subject to inflation. For example the Nikon Z30 is cheaper than the Canon 550D that I started out with 13 years ago, but the Z30 has so much more feature… I was just telling my partner how back in 2010 the only reliable way to film vlog is to carry a professional full frame body like 5D Mark 2, so close to 10000..

There’s also dedicated Vlog point and shoots like the Sony ZV1 and 1F, and Canon Powershot V10. But -1 for no interchangeable lens and small sensor.

I suppose video content creation is the next possible evolution for the camera world. Whilst phones can slap a ton of filter, max out their noise reduction on photos they can’t do that on videos. And that’s where the optically superior dedicated cameras come in.

Argh knocked over my bottle of fish sauce while cooking and it broke. My kitchen smells of fish sauce and my countertop and floor is over seasoned. Hope the Palo turns out ok though

[-] dukeGR4 1 points 1 year ago

I could smell it from my phone yo

[-] oyenyaaow@lemmy.zip 2 points 1 year ago

honest thought: i see monyet.cc and i read it monyet cyber cafe

[-] Annoyed_Crabby 4 points 1 year ago

That's the way to detect millennial and gen Y.

[-] dukeGR4 2 points 1 year ago

Aren’t those two the same thing?

[-] Annoyed_Crabby 1 points 1 year ago
[-] dukeGR4 1 points 1 year ago

nah gen X is called sth like MTV or Lost generation or sth, it's between boomer and millennial in other words

[-] cendawanita 1 points 1 year ago* (last edited 1 year ago)

Y'all hurting me in my millennial soul 😭

(TLDR - age cohorts like this is a marketing invention to group american consumers based on generational media and product consumption patterns as well as lifestyle patterns. non-Americans born between ... 1970-ish to 1995 or so will always be a little confused because technological change was so quick and uneven that global southies might have had a childhood like an older generation - because foreign/american media arrived slower but then as soon as the internet and satellite broadcasting arrived their patterns quickly kept up with their american age cohort.

(Ok, all that established:

Gen X is 1965-1979

Millennials had the most amount of technological change in their lifetimes that there's a sub-cohort:

Xennials/Older Millennials: 1979-1982 (but this rly can be contested) they have Gen X childhoods but millennial young adult and onwards consumption - Malaysian xennials I think felt this change A LOT, imo

Millennials - 1980/81 to 1995/96

(Gen X - defined by Reality Bites, Prozac Nation

Older Millennials - internet/being online

Later Millennials - the internet they know is probably mostly Web 2.0)

we use age cohort a lot in my household cause my boomer dad keeps shitting on "Gen Ys" for buying bubble teas cause I really like bubble teas.

That said, which age cohort is the best you reckon? anyone else feel free to share!

I think mine (Late Millennial) is definitely the best :D Spent my early childhood playing sticks and eat shit outside then i get to play PS2. Then i moved to PC and played lots of classic RPG - World of Warcraft, Gunbound, Knight Online, RAN Online, Wolf Team etc. Fesbuk was at its peak too, less commercialised and it was strictly a social media platform. Truly the best of both worlds!

I don't think there's a "best" cohort objectively, because subjectively for most people, it would be their childhood and young adult years 😝😆😆😆 I mean, for me, I'm nostalgic for proper mix tapes and Limewire hahahahhahaaha (TLDR the best age is whenever my knees were good and the liver is strong, ehem)

[-] UltimateUsermaim 2 points 1 year ago

Interesting...I tried bumble last night. I got 1 match. And 6 other accounts that like me but I haven't like them yet.

Apparently there's a limit on how much like you can give. I reached mine. It feels like a ploy to get me to buy their premium service.
