LemmyAtem,

I realize this is a meme, but isn’t it mostly linked to how many men died in wars last century, which disproportionately skews the numbers?

LemmyAtem,

It takes a lot less time to grow a new cow than it does to grow a new whale.

LemmyAtem,

Ah yes “sustainability”. Whaling is such a sustainable industry that basically every civilized nation has banned it. That’s okay though, we’ve proven that we’re really good at farming and fishing sustainably, so I’m sure we’ll be just as good at whaling. We definitely aren’t fishing the oceans to extinction, or releasing millions of tons of methane from factory cattle farming.

Oh wait…

LemmyAtem,

Sorry to hear this friend, I hope things get better for you!

LemmyAtem,

Lemmy.one, my instance of choice, has been down since Thursday - just a reminder that smaller instance isn’t always the solution. Having a few solid account choices on multiple instances is the way to go.

LemmyAtem,

The strange thing about reddit refugees on Lemmy is that they have this weird sense that the platform they left actually died when they did so. The trith is that the vast majority did not migrate and are happily eating their spoonfed shit.

When we say it’s dead, we mean what is used to be is dead. But let’s not pretend the site actually died or is no longer working. We can all (justifiably) think it’s a shit filled shell of it’s former self without being in denial.

LemmyAtem,

I assume it’s because they don’t have a very good resume and won’t get called/interviewed otherwise.

LemmyAtem,

Why do you think it requires you to lie? If you’re lying on your resume it’s (I can only assume) you are not actually qualified for the position you are applying for. I also assume that you are at more of an entry level in terms of your skills/qualifications. Is that accurate?

If you have success with that strategy good for you, but I’ll caution others - as you get further in your career, interviews get longer and more in depth. If you say you know how to do something, you are often asked technical questions on that thing, or in-depth questions on how you’d implement that thing/skill/strategy/into the position. As others have said lying and embellishing are not the same thing. You can oversell your skill to a degree, but be prepared to need to put in extra work (probably off the clock and in your own time) to get yourself to the skill level you said you had. You may not need to! But in some positions, you may be RELIED on for that skill you’re not as good at as you said you were.

Also - UPDATE your resume and keep it current. If you learned a new thing and can do it, put it on there before you forget you did it. Also, prioritize. Remove old things from your resume as you get further into your career and those skills/accomplishments are less impactful or Relevant. Replace with newer things. Keep track of what’s going on in your field and stay up to date with buzz words and topics and be able to speak to them even if it’s not your area of expertise.

LemmyAtem,

Sorry if this is a dumb but I legit never got into Twitter, and I only use Instagram to follow friends and bands I like.

How do I Mastadon? I’m not being sarcastic, not even a little. Like I literally have absolutely no concept of what I’m supposed to do on it or how to engage with it. Same with pixelfed tbh, like I open it, I see a milliong posts that have no comments or likes, I get confused and then I leave.

Like what do you do? How do you use it? Pretend I’m one of the idiot journalists this post is making fun of, happy to jump on that self-accepting sword!

LemmyAtem,

I will be minorly inconvenienced by this! And that’s 100% okay, go get yourselves a good contract and show the world that collective bargaining is the best avenue towards fair wages and labor protections.

LemmyAtem,

PLAY OUTER WILDS

Okay but like whats the game about? What do you do?

I CAN’T TELL YOU JUST PLAY IT BRO.

But like, how do I know if it’s even the type of game I will li-

JUST PLAAAAAAAYYYYY IIITTTTTTTT

LemmyAtem,

I gave it the honest try myself and just didn’t have fun. I went to a couple different planets, died in some weird gravity reversing situation a couple times, died to the loop a few times, etc. It was neat but wasn’t for me. I can see how people would get really into it though.

LemmyAtem,

Thunder is great, but it’s got some issues I hope they work out. I don’t like that you can’t block communities in thunder, or if you can its so convoluted that I haven’t figured it out yet. I also don’t like that it struggles to seamlessly refresh. You’ll be scrolling through the feed then two seconds later go through the exact same ten posts you just saw because it refresh glitched.

On the other hand I think their feed aesthetic is the nicest of the bunch, and they have my absolute favorite feature where you can tap to unblur NSFW and then re-tap to reblur it all without leaving the feed. That is SUCH a nice feature.

I’m using connect as my main ATM but I’ll def jump back to thunder if they can clean up some of the bugs!

LemmyAtem,

Read the article guys, don’t fall into the headline trap. Facebook is definitely a bad guy, but it’s not the bad guy here.

Another reason to leave Reddit: I forgot how hostile it can be

I’ve mostly left reddit and switched to beehaw, but I posted on somewhat of a niche tech-related subreddit today since there really isn’t a community for that here yet. And wow, I got instantly downvoted twice and the first comment response was rude and hostile. All I posted was a feature suggestion for software that I...

LemmyAtem,

Sometime in the past few years I feel like reddit devolved into an argument fest. It seems like the only thing anyone is interested in is arguing or saying rude or hateful shit in the comments. It turned me off to commenting tbh and even pre-api nonsense made me realize I didn’t enjoy reddit the way I used to.

It’s nice here still, and hopefully stays that way. Sometimes I’ll write something that I realize could be taken as rude and I’ll feel like an absolute asshole until I fix it. Like I’m worried I’ll upset someone when I didn’t mean to… I haven’t given something like that a second thought on Reddit in years.

Also if anyone reads a comment from me and I sound like an asshole, please let me know! It’s almost certainly not intended, especially anywhere on Beehaw.

LemmyAtem,

It does seem like .world is trying to corral itself and curb the issues that flared up from their growth, so that's very promising. Meanwhile, shit just works is still an absolute dumpster fire.

LemmyAtem,

For a Monday it's not so bad. Had a great dental cleaning, dinner with the wife's fam, some couch cuddle time with the dog. Can't complain really!

LemmyAtem,

Can you take that vacation once the project is over? Or are you trying not to think about it so you avoid getting distracted?

LemmyAtem,

BattleBit? What's that? Don't think I've heard of it.

LemmyAtem,

Good luck friend. What field are you in?

LemmyAtem,

So you're saying you watched the recap to avoid getting.....

....Lost? 😎

LemmyAtem,

Never heard of this app! Can't even find it on f-droid as of now!

it's Friday night, what's everyone doing this weekend?

Mine is going to be laid back if all goes according to plan. I'm going to do some birding with a friend tomorrow morning, then I'm headed to a used bookstore to buy a copy of "the pricess bride" that I talked myself out of the other day (I've never read it). Then I'm hitting the farmers market and then relaxing at home for the...

LemmyAtem,

Birthday celly tomorrow! Rooftop pool in the afternoon, whisky bar in the evening. Gonna be the BEES knees baby
