Pfp is my #hamster, Mister Peanut Butter, looking shocked at me taking a picture of him while he's busy grooming himself. Banner picture is of my two #cavy boars, Oreo (right) and Coffecake (left), who are claiming that I have never fed them once and will soon starve to death, despite the full food bowl behind them.

@Viking_Hippie Cavies are like Rabbits, but are generally hungrier. They like all the vegetables.

However, their normal diet is pellets and hay. They get very excited when they get to have veggies

@Viking_Hippie they also have never felt full once in their life. It's not something their brain is wired to experience. They remind me of this constantly, as seen in my banner pic https://cdn.masto.host/dicecamp/media_attachments/files/112/026/721/807/170/516/original/8136498ea948dba2.jpg

@LemmyKnowsBest not sure what you are picking up on, but I think our server runs well partly because our admin works for Google and can bring his expertise over here. I have mixed feelings about that. He is very obviously a fan of the big tech companies and seemed a bit miffed that we all got so upset about trying to

@sbv they tend to see clips on either YouTube shorts, TikTok, or incorporated into other things. They don't need to watch the actual show to think Homander is cool

@pteryx @196 fun fact about child development: Kids don't develop proper Theory of Mind until they are about 7 years old. Before the age of 7 every child is a little sociopath that is barely capable of comprehending that other people also have feelings.

Its not impossible for them to develop empathy, though it's hard. You can get those Empathy neurons firing by forcing the kid to think about other people's feelings at least once a day. So, any kid with good Empathy just has good parents.

@pteryx @196 no that's just poor classroom management

Why are all the instances from each other?

@nostupidquestions

Has there been drama over there? Is there a functional reason?

Also if you know any good channels, @ them below

@onlinepersona @thegiddystitcher that's actually what I am doing. I found I can just follow all these peertube users from Mastodon, so that's what I do

Are there any good Peertube channels?

@bluGill @asklemmy yeah that's kinda the reason I'm asking for help finding them. There isnt a good way to search on that platform.

If you want to know whether someone is on Mastodon, how would you be most likely to ask?

@shekinahcancook @grammargirl @GrahamDowns I don't think most people automatically get that Mastodon is significantsly different from Facebook, in that there is one one Facebook run by Zuckerbot and it doesn't talk to Instagram or Whatsapp, while there are bazillions of Mastodons tooting all over the place (including places that are clearly not a Mastodon)

New research shows that the insects flying around the streetlights are in fact in a living hell that we made for bugs.

@science

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-024-44785-3

Essentially, their tiny bug brains think the light is the sunset, so they keep turning to keep the "sun" at the same angle so they can go "straight." No matter how far they fly, they don't make any progress. They are trapped in this little hell we made just for them, not understanding why they can't get to where they are going.

Unless you try to take a picture of them. The autofocus spooks them

@Kolanaki brings a whole new meaning to "all those bugs should be burning in hell"

@RobotToaster it is a vibe

@Shkshkshk@dice.camp avatar

@alvvayson Existing research was about "how do we stop the bugs from circling our lights?". This is about why the bugs circle the lights. It artificially triggers the dorsal reflex, which disorients the bugs.

For , a short story about and .

Back in 2011, I was dating an attractive young woman who told me she didn't play , but wanted to show me her D&D set. Weirdly, it was the 1977 "Holmes Edition" set.

"What's weird about that," you ask? Reader, my girlfriend was born in 1981. How does a non-gaming Millennial start her collection with a box four years older than herself?

Nothing makes me feel like a robot more than watching comedy classics.
I just don't get it. I don't get why Blazing Saddles is funny and not just sad. I don't get why violence, discrimination and farts elict laughter in this context.

I feel like I need to sit down with a "normal" human and have them explain every scene and what the comedic elements are and what ppl are laughing at.

Also the gum scene? Do not understand it all. Why is it funny??

@PMscenarios I also think we have collectively moved on from the cultural things that made those movies work.

I think the prime example of this is Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I honestly believe that if that movie had come out last year, it would do well at the box office but have very, very polarizing ratings, mainly because the whole plot is about how pointless and stupid big box movies are.
