Kind of hard to return this after 195 years if it fails.

Sweden has very warm weather right now, 20+ degrees with strong sun. That used to be happening in mid July for a country that is so far north. Now it’s in May, and it was the same last year. Very early summers that goes away earlier too.

Global warming or whatever but weather has changed significantly during my lifetime, that’s very obvious.

Does anyone else ever just realize that you're not even sure why you want a relationship at all?

As I’ve gained more and more close friends, more than I’ve ever had in my life, and some closer than I’ve ever had in my life, I’ve come to realize something recently. Despite the prevailing feeling like I want a relationship, I don’t actually know why it is I want one, nor what I have to gain from one....

People get into relationships for sexual reasons, no?

And then they get tired of eachother. Ive realized that some people don’t like the person they are with very much. It’s just too much work to switch them out, and you lose other things you want (like children, the house, money etc) if you break up with them. And you have to find someone new, which is very difficult today for a lot of people.

I wonder if even most people are slightly unhappy with their partner and they don’t feel emotionally connected.

So I don’t think it’s wrong to skip all that and focus on great friends. But friends often get into relationships and you lose out on the friendship when that happens.

Yeah I know what you mean. There is a certain kind of girl that gives off that vibe. I’ve often wondered if it’s intentional or not.

But if you are that kind, you have to put in extra effort to make friends. My girlfriend has “resting bitch face” as she calls it. When she looks serious, she looks a bit angry. It also turns people off until she starts to talk to them.

People like Elon Musk as exactly like the kid in the sandbox who wanted the entire sandbox for himself, and who would fight for all sandboxes in the yard despite not being able to use them.

That kind of personality will take all until nothing is left.

Sounds really dramatic in a news item though. Click bait. :)

But yeah, I recently moved away from these cloud services and have a Nas at home now. Only encrypted backups in cloud. Because fuck Google.

Google is not showing the web anymore, it’s showing it’s own content now, stolen from the web.

People don’t even leave their site now with Ai results, that Google controls and can modify how they want.

Not sure what to do about this. The general public will be completely lost in Google.

I think it’s the same echo chamber here, but it’s smaller. People block instances they don’t like, and are in favor of moderators removing controversial things, specially around communism and tankies.

I just like that it’s not run by big tech. Just discussions, no companies or ads. I think most users are tech people.

Why do people still trust this guy?

1984,
@1984@lemmy.today avatar

They shouldn’t trust him because he is a liar and a manipulator, and a charming, effective one, like all sociopaths.

He literally goes out there and talks to the crowd thinking they are idiots, because he can just make them think whatever he wants.

And they are. That’s why I’m wondering why they don’t learn. There must be something inside them that makes them want to be betrayed. Kind of like a relationship where you know you will get hurt but you do it anyway because you think that’s what you deserve. Maybe? I really don’t understand it.

Future robots will make a joke before they shoot you in the head for resisting arrest. What’s not to like?

I don’t know. People in the west dont seem to understand they also listen to propaganda every single day. But they think it’s just happening in Russia or China.

People should be talking about void. Such bullshit. :p

Why do Microsoft have to welcome people to their software? Is it because they otherwise wouldn’t feel welcome using it? :P

Yeah it’s not like the western instances have any propaganda. Only Russians have that. :P

Lots of programming actually. Rewrote a thing from scratch and now it’s so much better. Feels good. :)

This may surprise you, but in Lua!

I used to be a big user of neovim and heavily into plugins and messing with my configs, and lua is the language built into neovim for doing things like that.

One of my neovim plugins had annoying bugs due to evolving to support more and more features, and it was time for a rewrite to make it all clean again.

As someone who is aging. Late thirties. How can I keep my finger on the pulse of current trends, particularly in music?

As an example. I grew up in hip-hop but at a certain point I stopped listening to new people and realised recently that I’d slept on some bangers. Like Kendrick particularly, but even people like Juice WRLD and Xxxtentacion....

Late thirties is aging? That’s like peak life. You have money and family (at least a chance of that) and purpose in your life. You have confidence and you know who you are.

You are still a bit dumb, but less dumb than twenty somethings. I liked my late thirties.

Yeah it just works now. Sometimes I miss the days where we had to troubleshoot sound drivers, because it made us learn so much. Even if we didn’t manage to fix the problem, we learned about how sound works in Linux.

Only bad games are afraid of reviews of their alpha versions. :)
