HandsHurtLoL,

This looks so great!! I'm glad you went for the blocking and can now confidently give it to your Godchild. They'll love it!

HandsHurtLoL,

Blocking can only help (a bit), if you used natural fibers like wool or cotton. I can't tell from your photo or post if you used acrylic yarn, which will not block.

I echo the advice about a border to make the outside edge more uniform.

Good luck with it! It's a gorgeous pattern!

Haven't even directed my browser to reddit since migrating to kbin in June, but it's never fulfilled the same dopamine hit for me. I've supplanted my online addiction with YouTube now, which because of what I flit past and what I actually pay attention to has been extremely educational because of the algorithm!

Pretty early on, I ended up becoming the head moderator for a magazine on kbin, which then made me feel an ethical sort of guilt about commenting there anymore, so really the only place I wanted to be part of the dialogue is now gone for me here on kbin. Our magazine has a much larger mirror community on lemmyworld, so our magazine is barely holding on by a thread even after an initial burst of new subscribers. Discussion is almost non-existent in the magazine, and I'm not sure if it's because we tried to instate common-sense community guidelines early, or if because we missed the momentum of growing userbase after the rexxit since most people migrated to lemmyworld instead of kbin.

I'm not even sure why I keep my account. (I know I sound like Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh in this post.)

HandsHurtLoL,

Ah - yikes. I was really not anticipating you seeing my mini pity party here, ernest. I know you and the team have been really working hard on kbin and I've seen massive changes with the modding panel and functions as a result of the latest instance update. I have a ton of respect for what you all are accomplishing on the fediverse and I was originally a very vocal early adopter after the first reddit migration in June. I trust that you all are shouldering a major responsibility with this instance, and I'm grateful for the fediverse at the very least. I hope when you read this you didn't get the sense that I had any criticisms of kbin as the particular user interface I use for the fediverse - just that even across the federated instances (mostly lemmyworld), my ability to doom scroll for hours a day outpaces the userbase.

I think I feel a personal sense of failure(?) or disappointment(?) that I wasn't able to usher in a similar sense of community and activity to the sub I moderate compared to reddit. I think moving over here, it felt like my sub would be the natural beneficiary of inheriting the volume of users and content that existed on reddit, but our mirror community on lemmyworld got the lion's share and it isn't even scratching former reddit heyday numbers. Also, the people in their community are... suspect. I don't care for the comments section.

I hope you didn't take umbrage to my comment. I'm eager to see what new features the kbin dev team will roll out.

HandsHurtLoL,

Yeah, it's a 100% self-imposed moratorium just because I don't want to appear to have a modding bias. There was a period where I was trying to enliven the community by posting a few articles each day, especially from sources not submitted to our mirror community on lemmyworld, but then my real life job was draining my soul for 3 straight months, so that endeavor fell by the wayside. Also, unless it's an article dumping on one key player, our user base doesn't tend to comment on news articles. It's a weird phenomenon I've observed.

I will add though that my hobby communities that I belong to never make it to my feed, which seems to imply that those communities are stagnant, too. I would probably comment more in those spaces, but it's rare that new threads are created, I guess.

HandsHurtLoL,

You need to post this as a link to an article, not as a discussion thread in which you link to the article. Removed, but you're encouraged to repost. Article title must be the title of thread.

HandsHurtLoL,

I saw an ADHD influencer recommend wearing ear plugs in public to block out environmental noise to keep conversation directed at you still audible.

I get distracted in public when my ears pick up conversation around me - especially people who are fighting or gossiping and I find it very entertaining compared to the discussion I'm in - so this is something I'd like to try the next time I have a dinner out at a busy restaurant with others.

Editing to add: I just listened to about a minute of the femtanyl song you linked and I realized that I also get in the zone productive with some types of music in which I can't understand the lyrics. I listen to a Pandora station built around Sigur Ros because I can't understand the language lol

HandsHurtLoL,

By virtue of the fact that up until just a few months ago, you could even go there and casually peruse security sensitive and classified information if only you found the right bathroom, I guess you could say it was priceless.

HandsHurtLoL,

This makes me wonder if team Trump isn't preemptively muddying the waters for pending news of Trump's inevitable death. I wonder if Trump got a prognosis recently and this is just a type of staw poll taken about how ready and willing the GOP would accept a replacement name on the ticket.

HandsHurtLoL,

I guess you missed it when the story was broken that apparently Nancy Reagan used to give epic jobbers.

HandsHurtLoL,

Fun fact on kbin.social: you can add mods without their consent or notification.

Not ethical to do so, but you can do what you've described in your question.

[News] "Hit list": Trump grand jurors face violent threats after names and addresses shared on QAnon forums - Salon.com (www.salon.com)

Users on far-right online forums are publishing private information about members of the Georgia grand jury that indicted former president Donald Trump and 18 of his allies in a sweeping criminal case focused on alleged 2020 election interference earlier this month, leading to jurors receiving threats online....

HandsHurtLoL,

If I'm not mistaken, Trump was given very clear orders from the bench not to run his mouth online to disparage any members of the jury, interact with them, or intimidate them. This situation is that Brooklyn 99 meme of Holt saying, "Why did you start intimidating the jury? I specifically requested that you don't."

Lock him up.

[News] House Judiciary Committee expected to launch inquiry into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (www.cnn.com)

The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee is expected to open a congressional investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis as soon as Thursday, a source tells CNN – the same day former President Donald Trump is slated to surrender at the county jail after being charged for participating in schemes to...

HandsHurtLoL,

I bet they're going to subpoena her for a hearing the day-of or after the start of the Fulton trial just to delay the trial for Trump and then maybe he can cry unfair that his constitutional right to a speedy trial was violated.

Why do they still carry water for this goon?

HandsHurtLoL,

But no school district in Texas who stupidly thinks that chaplains should work in public schools would knowingly hire Satanists when there are probably many Christian denomination chaplains available.

Different story if the only applicant is a Satanist, but the district just declares the search as failed without interviewing the Satanist. Then it's a matter of religious discrimination in the hiring process for that one individual.

I can't think of any situation in which the actual chaplain at any given school could challenge this law to the point it starts moving through the courts.

To get into the court system, some parents are going to have to sue. I'm predicting a Jewish family, Muslim family, or Bahai family raising suit after the WASP chaplain starts evangelizing to the non-believers.

HandsHurtLoL,

Although this blog is discussing law at a deep level, this is not addressing law related to public policy and therefore is not political in nature. This is not what this magazine is intended for. Removed.

I'm truly baffled at how this guy's polling could do even better after the Georgia indictment, but I guess if you legitimately believe he is the Messiah (which, note that his supporters have conspicuously dropped all the second coming of Jesus rhetoric around him), then it's believable that the whole world and system will persecute him because he's just too good for this world and evil is jealous of his pure righteousness. I say this to mock christians who view 45 as the new Jesus, not to mock all of Christianity.

You would think that the GOP - all these fucking barnacles on the bloated carcass that is 45 - would start getting on board with this Amendment 14 strategy to disqualify him for running for POTUS again a la the Ides of March style. Banding together - and hell, not even reaching across the aisle for God-forbid bipartisanship - to depose 45 fully would finally create enough power vacuum for them to divvy up or for at least a new strongman to step up. Even if they quibble at it, reminiscent of the GOP primary in 2012 with - what? 15 podiums of pretenders at the first primary debate? - it would finally free up the sheer volume of resources that are constantly flowing to 45 for other political darlings to leverage.

On the Ad Fontes Media Bias Chart, The Epoch Times' averaged reliability score is 19.80, which is very far below our cutoff average score of 32.0.

I have removed this submission.

HandsHurtLoL,

This article is not addressing anything from politics, so I have removed it. No one listed in the article is a policymaker at any level (local, state, or federal), nor is it related to or resulting from any laws/policies.

HandsHurtLoL,

Of course he said that because if Trump is disqualified because of J6, then so would also half the GOP's varsity team from Congress. I think if all of Trump's in-government co-conspirators (just to name a few, but not an exhaustive list: Meadows, Scott, Hawley, Boebert, Gaetz, Greene, etc.) were expelled and never allowed to return to government, I'm pretty sure at least half those seats would go to middle of the road Democrats (I mean at least Boebert's seat, minimum) and the GOP would lose their razor thin margin in the Senate.

I think this is one of the many major reasons Pence keeps towing this line for Trump.

HandsHurtLoL,

America. Where others' enjoyment of looking at your pregnant body is more important than what you can do with your own body.

HandsHurtLoL,

Absolute lack of self awareness. Like, what does it mean if the criticism is coming from both the left and now the right about how blind the loyalty is to this orange fascist? They're desperate to link DeSantis and Hillary, but don't you think DeSantis also stands to benefit from conservatives' blind loyalty. When even he is trying to be the wake up call, and they reject it... Good God.

HandsHurtLoL,

This is funny, but not true. The federal government turns off servers and electronics after business hours in accordance with power-saving measures enacted by President Jimmy Carter.

Carter installed solar panels onto the White House in the late 70s, early 80s. Reagan came in and dismantled them.
