state licensed lolbert and hypernatalist with a breeding kink. never watched rick & morty and i'm proud of it.

don't only rely on my words, read what happy customers wrote about me: "10/10 would buy again", "top seller, great value", "wildly incorrect", "teil des problems", "without imagination", "Repeated provocation using copy/paste.", "if you take a dump in my mentions, I just might notice the smell", "log out and never login again", "Du redest wirr.", "My brother in Christ, this is such a ridiculously dumb statement that I will no longer entertain this silly conversation.", "Auf Derailing-Diskussionen habe ich keine Lust. Finger über dem Blocken-Knopf.", "Wie gesagt, du kannst der Diskussion inhaltlich nicht folgen."

it's more food for totalitarians because you continue to enable authority. your first impulse is to call for authority to ban something you fear.

@xs4me2 @ericschutte @MobileOak @stroughtonsmith emphasis on should? :)

i very rarely see anything even remotely resembling good reporting by the biggish outlets here. it reeks of the cliques the media associate with - it's not any better than AI generated bullshit.

fwiw i think hunter thompson was absolutely right in that objectiveness is best achieved through radical subjectivity.

@freemo a few days ago a politician of a ruling party in germany said that we need more CCTV surveillance as "security is a precondition for freedom and therefor the first duty of a state".

("Denn Sicherheit ist eine Voraussetzung für Freiheit und deshalb erste Aufgabe des Staates." https://nitter.poast.org/cem_oezdemir/status/1777611751682457753#m)

the lack of mental capacity of these people is pretty concerning indeed.

bonifartius,
@bonifartius@qoto.org avatar

@freemo there were several studies in germany how surveillance impacts crime levels. the result was that aside from things stolen out of cars nothing really changes, especially not the rate of violent crimes.

bonifartius,
@bonifartius@qoto.org avatar

@freemo greater response time would mean to have cops there already and them doing their job :P

tbh, i'd much prefer common people carrying guns. stupid german gun laws don't prevent the real bad people from owning guns after all.

Masto users break down when you tell them to use linux 🐧

@gabriel most arguments in the blog post by rubenerd are kinda bs

>>Using Windows makes you a cog in the capitalist machine.
> This assumes agency. Also, no.

>> You don’t have a right to complain if you use Windows.
> Big we should improve society somewhat vibes with this.

if you aren't violently forced to use windows this is nowhere near improve society somewhat. you clearly have the agency to not use windows, albeit with consequences

>> It’s GNU/Linux.
> No comment. Wait, that’s a comment. Fsck.

good old bsd fanboyism. bsd wouldn't be here without gnu. llvm and other permissively licensed utilities are a pretty recent development. bsds are fine, not acknowledging gnu is just ungrateful.

@freemo iirc, i had some problem with tickers at one point because the server which hosts the ticker stuff was down or something?

bonifartius,
@bonifartius@qoto.org avatar

@zleap @inquiline clearly bird flu is the next in line - we already had a swine-flu scare after all. it even had it’s own rushed and flawed vaccine, pandemrix. at least back then a handful of cases was enough to properly investigate and stop things, compared to ten years later.

if anything these animal pathogens tell us something about how we should and shouldn’t do agriculture. maybe keeping thousands of the same animal in close proximity isn’t that clever.

@arzachel
i think it's perverse to load the guilt of killing someone onto others. especially if you are perfectly capable of doing it yourself physically.

kind of side note, i think the "we can't do anything for you anymore" is equally perverse of the western medical system. might as well have tried doing ahayuasca with a shaman or something. those things don't are "evidence based" of course and so are regarded as bigger evil than killing people.

CEO: We need to cut costs.

Accountant: Okay. We paid you $50 million last year. We spent $10 million on your private jet flights and luxury hotel accommodations. For some reason you are being paid $1 million for this 45 minute meeting.

CEO: I see. Who's that in the hallway?

Accountant: That's Greg. He is the only thing keeping this company from falling apart. We pay him in nickels and Grubhub gift cards.

CEO: Fire Greg.

> Its just most people just find negotiating stressful and would rather not, but sadly thats just a life skill society needs to function.

can only speak for myself: standing up for what i legitimately want wasn't something my parents or school taught me - in fact they both did quite the opposite.

@freemo @brouhaha @lowqualityfacts we absolutely should teach our kids this, yes. would also help in that businesses which really are exploitative not find people to exploit! :)
