It will be a mix of interesting and depressing to watch the healthcare systems around the globe handle an increasingly old population alongside increased weather extremes.

‘Biggest clean energy disaster in years’: UK auction secures no offshore windfarms (www.theguardian.com)

Britain’s offshore wind industry suffered a blow after ministers failed to heed warnings from some of the world’s biggest renewable energy developers that the annual auction was set too low to reflect their soaring costs. No energy companies submitted bids for offshore wind projects, the government confirmed on Friday...

Who’d guess a race for renewables would cause the prices to skyrocket? Supply and demand is just too new for us to understand it to such depths.

A system where a housing tax that primarily targets the poorest is the main source of social care funding. And this system is finally crumbling? No one could have seen this coming.

The main risk of sugar isn’t the calories themselves, but rather their effect on our fullness perception. That is, the more sugar we eat, the harder it is to feel full after eating something. This in return cases a vicious cycle, one that can easily lead into obesity. I don’t know if that same issue can happen with sweeteners but I don’t generally trust anything that tricks our senses to such a degree. I don’t consider coffee the holy grail either, it’s just that its negative health effects have been tested for ages and are acceptable for its overall benefits. But that’s my own risk assessment, with only my health in the line.

It’s hard to get a good grip on the health neutrality of diet soda when the companies who make them have lied to us about sugar for decades. Maybe sweeteners are just their next lie, who knows. Much of the research done on sweeteners is funded by the ones who profit from it. The food industry have far more power than anyone should be comfortable with them having.

I often think of the analogy where the Tories are the CIA and the UK is a Latin America country.

My bet is on the cloudy sky. The crane is bound to run out of energy before doing any real damage.

I don’t think this accounts for unpaid hours and the not at all voluntary socials in some countries such as Japan.

These numbers are very low, considering how much of the global population live in political shitholes, if not war zones.

Sounds like a company owns the house and lets it out.

What's the most efficient way for peeling potatoes by hand? (sh.itjust.works)

Like, I get comments from people telling me it’s weird I always try to peel potatoes like I am trying to make the worlds longest 1-piece potato peel. To me it feels way for efficient and fun to continu down a potato in 1 peel, while circling around it, instead of randomly scraping a hundred different pieces of peel off and...

I don’t think hands are good at peeling potatoes. Maybe if you sharpen your nails?

So, you think without legislations small businesses could stand their ground?

lasagna,
@lasagna@programming.dev avatar

Some specific legislations then? Would be worth pointing them out. I’m no expert in the topic and I doubt most people here are. Your statement makes you seem against legislating it at all.

UK economy bounced back from Covid, ONS revisions reveal (www.ft.com)

Official statistics on Friday added almost 2 per cent to the size of the UK economy, in a surprise move that showed the country recovered much faster from the pandemic than previously reported. The Office for National Statistics revisions, which also mean that Britain is no longer the worst performing economy in the G7, will...

Doesn’t really matter if the economy got bigger if it just means more money to corporations. The average person has certainly not seen growth. A mortage increase of 5% coupled with low wage increases, high food and fuel inflation left most people much worse off.

Then again, this unit of measure has always been a very poor one in countries with huge wealth gaps.

Whataboutism bs. Two wrongs don’t make a right.

whataboutism /ˌwɒtəˈbaʊtɪz(ə)m/ noun the technique or practice of responding to an accusation or difficult question by making a counter-accusation or raising a different issue.

Credit is definitely due and this is an amazing feat by India.

I haven’t bothered to discuss the other topic. Is there even any point when US issues are always on the front page here? I probably know more about US politics than my own country at this point.

Though of course you could also go there and take a jab at Americans. Let me know when you do so I can give you some support.

Whatever your reasons, that was whataboutism.

Expecting others to know what goes on in NASA discussions is moronic at best. That’s not the topic we are in. You didn’t even link it or reference it.

The Indian caste system is a humanitarian crisis. Would you rather westerners ignore it? There’s just no winning then, is there?

Boats. Mash them. Boil them. Put immigrants in them.

That’s amazing. Is this money protected somehow or are we seeing a bunch of people get scammed?

That’s some weird kinky shit you got going on in your imagination, Dhave Config.

But I don’t blame you for it. I appreciate my emotions and I think they’re beautiful. I’m glad to be somewhere I can express them and I would like to keep it that way. Wouldn’t you too, Dhave?

This makes me a little warm inside because it feels like chatting with ChatGPT.

Oh, this is what interacting with Mastodon means. I don’t get notifications for the tags.

And that’s okay, mate. I haven’t tried to look clever. I don’t consider myself clever. As a matter of fact, I’m a moron and I’m happy to be seen as such. Welcome to my level, by the way.

I’m not used to things like Twitter much. Do people just not provide insight when they post? Your posts reads like “And I think neither correct nor clever. But I’m not going to say why because my head lives in my ass.”
