jochem,

While on trail, Taghi ordered and succeeded in the murder of:

  • the crown witness’ innocent brother,
  • the crown witness’ lawyer, Derk Wiersum,
  • investigative journalist, Dutch celebrity and confidant of the crown witness, Peter R. de Vries.

This level of violence aimed at innocents was unheard of in the Netherlands. It’s what drug trafficking brings.

jochem,

It’s also a thing in other countries. In the Netherlands there recently was a news article about someone who got financially ruined because she and her husband stopped paying taxes and rent because they claimed to be sovereign.

Probably imported the idea from the US, where it’s much more visible.

jochem,

Peter Santinello is a guy on YouTube who does very genuine interviews with people from all walks of life. He has a short series in Saudi Arabia where he talks with all kinds of people, including women. They talk about how women driving became a thing and you can see how modern some cities are. Women are not even wearing a headscarf everywhere.

Definitely recommended to watch if you want to get a different view on the country than the perspective you get from most western media.

jochem,

And Obama murdered hundreds of civilians with drones, yet we’re still able to acknowledge the freedoms that American people have.

Drugsland Nederland heeft schuld aan geweldsexplosie Ecuador, zeggen experts (nos.nl) Dutch

Ecuador is verreweg het belangrijkste herkomstland van onderschepte cocaïne in de haven van Rotterdam, wat op zijn beurt een belangrijke doorvoerhaven is van cocaïne voor Europa. Avila denkt dat afspraken tussen Nederland en Ecuador, zoals het recent gesloten douaneverdrag, kunnen helpen om drugssmokkel tegen te gaan....

jochem,

Op afters zat we wel eens te filosoferen over fairtrade drugs. Probleem blijft dat het allemaal illegaal is. Als je al niet kan garanderen dat je chocolade slaafvrij is, hoe ga je dat dan in godsnaam de cocaïneketen op orde krijgen, zelfs als je dat als drugsbaron zou willen.

jochem,

I think the basic reasoning is some form of:

“If you support Palestina, you are against Israel. And you can’t be against Israel, because then you are an anti-semite and that means you support Hitler.”

It’s mainly prevelant in western countries that historically support Israel. I do think a big part of that is some historical shame/feeling the Jewish people are owed something, given the genocide they had to endure in WW2. And of course a touch of geopolitics. And right wing politicians using Israel as a way to position themselves (I guess they hate Muslims more than Jews?).

jochem,

Really amazing how all nuance is lost when you discuss Israel online.

jochem,

I use copilot on a daily basis for programming. It has made me much more productive and it’s a real pleasure to use it. Nothing overhyped about it.

Curious to see what it will bring for other domains, e.g. for dealing with emails.

I do agree that there’s a lot of filtering happening. Not a huge deal for more applications. Luckily you can run your own models that are not filtered. I can definitely see a future where you run your own models locally. Afaik Apple recently did some stuff around that.

jochem,

If you mean the person you’re responding to is downvoted: right now the comment has one downvote and two upvotes. Hardly any activity, let alone enough to argue for any voting conspiracies.

jochem,

This is not how it will go down. PVV might briefly hurt when its government fails, but then they’ll start spewing their far right populist shit again and people will eat it up and vote. In the meantime the whole political conversation has shifted to the right and will nor recover.

Having PVV form a government is not good. Not on the short term, definitely not on the long term.

jochem,

I like your optimism, but VVD and NSC are probably going to try to work with Wilders.

As a beginner, how should I go about learning difficult concepts?

I’m trying to learn programming and something I struggle with the most is trying to separate code mentally into chunks where I can think through the problem. I’m not really sure how to describe it other than when I read a function to determine what it does then go to the next part of the code I’ve already forgotten how the...

jochem,

The name of the function, what goes in and what goes out in most cases should be enough to get a good idea on what the function does.

It also helps to make a diagram of how everything ties together. Just boxes and arrows is enough.

When writing your own code, it takes a bit of experience to know when to put something in its own function. It’s very obvious when you’re replicating code. It’s also very common to cut things up when a function gets too big. Look for bits of functionality that you can give a good name.

jochem,

I don’t see a connection between climate justice and justice for Palestinians, other than that it’s both about justice. Could you elaborate why it’s necessary to bring these seemingly unrelated struggles for justice together?

I btw totally see how a lot of social justice is tied to climate justice, but specifically the Palestinian struggle seems totally unrelated. Happy to change my mind.

jochem,

I can strongly recommend the SponsorBlock extention (also available in revanched).

jochem,

I always write it as a select, before turning it into a delete or update. I have burned myself too often already.

jochem,

It’s also hard to imagine people will live in harmony when one side literally enforces an apartheid regime on the other side.

jochem,

There are huge differences. One country came into existence due to a federation disintegrating, because its members called for independence. The other country came in existence because an occupier forced it upon the people living there.

There wasn’t also a huge amount of migration involved with Ukraine. People mostly continued their lives when Ukraine became independent. The founding of Israel involved many Jews for all over the world migrating to that area. You can imagine that affects the people already living there.

jochem,

With Influx 3 the preferred language is gonna be their SQL dialect. Flux is on its way out and I suspect it will get deprecated in the near future. Flux saw very slow adoption and SQL can do everything as well.

jochem,

The one that blew my mind is that plate tectonics is only a widely accepted theory since the 70s.

jochem,

They’re nice if they also migrate your db schema. That way you define your schema once and use it both to setup your db and interact with it via code. I do write raw sql for more complex queries, e.g. when there’s recursion.

jochem,

I was big into downloading before streaming services were a thing. Music streaming is one of the few services that’s totally worth my money: no hassle and I rarely have to resort to other platforms to find what I want (very different from video streaming, which totally sucks when it comes to that).

Why doesn't the United Kingdom rejoin the European Union?

Admittedly, I don’t know much about Brexit, but from what I have been exposed to, it seems like a decisively economical and political impairment that made travel and business with the rest of Europe more difficult and costly. Since it is so highly criticized as a terrible move, why doesn’t the UK just rejoin the EU?

jochem,

Every country that joined the EU after the 1992 Maastricht treaty has to adopt the euro. Denmark signed that treaty, UK as well, but if they rejoin, they’d more than likely be treated as a new member.

jochem,

Netherlands too. Amsterdam is even planning to change major inner city roads to 30km/h (minor roads already are).

jochem,

Go to a speciality coffee shop to find out what good black coffee tastes like.

Even then, there is no single coffee flavor. The bean and roasting make a big impact, although the darker the roast, the more alike the coffee becomes. Dark roasts have the typical coffee flavor, while lighter roasts make the bean’s flavor more pronounced. They can go from very fruity to very chocolatey. I once had beans that smelled like blueberries!

Brewing method also impacts the flavor profile a lot. Espresso packs the most flavor in a single sip. Filter and immersion brewing mellow the flavors out a bit more. I tend to prefer that over espresso. Allows me to enjoy the coffee longer and gives a bit more ‘space’ to discover subtleties in the flavor profile.

jochem,

Pretty standard sink in my neck of the woods. The part on the right has ridges and drains to the sink, so you can use it to put e.g. washed veggies or let dishes dry.
