Piggybacking on something @NoraReed posted earlier, the indie bookstores I know locally rely on people who are happy to work a few hours for basically a book discount. It's not fair or sustainable to underpay people for the same work under any circumstances. It's similar to the weird boomer argument that minimum wage should be for "teenagers who want spending money." That's not anything. All workers deserve a living wage.

Almost done with this scarf to go with the hat, I put it down and moved to another room and now it's gone all dramatic, nothing is that complicated 😆

i think the main reason "AI" took off as a label for content generated by tools trained on scrapers is there's not another term that includes both the visual art ones and the LLMs. like obviously it's also a huge PR coup for the people making it too. this isn't an invitation to come up with some twee bullshit to call it like "enshittification"

@aetataureate@dosgame.club avatar

hi! are you a physicist or #physics knowledgeable person? i'm trying to find out what is meant when scientists describe "feeble interaction" compared with weak interaction. please boost! if i find the answer, i'll edit and share it. (what i'm finding so far seems like just . . . "feeble" is what we call weak but in dark matter/dark sector physics. but why is there a different word at all?)

thank you scabux who explained that "feeble" is much weaker than weak and enables a different paradigm!

@scabux thank you, this is a huge help!

aetataureate,
@aetataureate@dosgame.club avatar

@mrcompletely yeah! i'm sure this is part of it. i wish the names were more descriptive in a useful way! like is feeble milliforce and weak is centiforce or just force? let's Rename These Confusing Things

it's so strange that people think renting is more transient than "home ownership," because until the day you fully pay off the house, your status is the same. that's not your house yet. if you aren't confident you can continue to pay off the loan, then you risk losing your home as well as the down payment you made. it's just a peculiar cultural lie to tell, to me

aetataureate,
@aetataureate@dosgame.club avatar

also honestly i think it's really unethical to the point of criminality that, when almost no one makes a full offer in cash for a home, we're still advertised a price that is fake. you'll pay far more -- even double or more -- over the course of your mortgage.

@aetataureate@dosgame.club avatar

it seems very capitalism pilled to be like "the best investment of my life is my home, which was worth $300,000 when i bought it, i paid $500,000 over the course of 20 years, and now it's worth $350,000."

I can't overstate how nice it is to have a partner with a more unstructured job and who also takes naps. No time imbalance feeling, no guilt, and understanding instead. It's NICE

I'm letting my feet carry me away from stuff like "is this popular thing overrated?" and "trying weird things we saw on tiktok." I'm tired of engagement bait and brainless shortcuts. I'd rather watch someone just talk about their life and their day than this stuff tbh.
