Hi, I'm Leafy and I'm a recovering reddit addict.

When will they leave this family alone ffs?!

I mean, Israel has been honest about their intentions from the beginning. It's other governments that are saying otherwise; desperately praying that their citizens have no reading or listening comprehension, so they can funnel more taxpayers' money into enriching weapon's merchants.

Well, we'll find out about other militaries soon enough. Stock prices for weapon's manufacturers have been booming. The US and EU want a convenient weapon's testing ground and a canal to gas fields out of this.

The biggest loser is always innocent civilians at home and abroad.

I finished Barrayar by Louis Mcmaster Bujold and had a really great time from start to finish. Gripping, funny, and just plain thought provoking, I can see why it won a Hugo award and Locus award.

Judging from how brisk weapons sales have been? Not only are these governments complicit, they are delighted at the death of Palestinians.

I like this. Hope to see it on more highways.

The settler colonists have so little love for thousand year old indigenous trees the metaphor almost writes itself. They will grow imported pine trees after they're done.

Their solution to the snitch is cracking me up, wtf!! And the rules around mixed gender is so interesting. Sadly I'm not sure it'll get more popular? Harry Potter just isn't as big as it used to be.

Tak suka HAMAS tapi setuju dengan yang lain. Lagipun, kita kan ahli OIC dan tiada satu-satu pun yang dibenar sokong Israel.

Lol, why are we banning it? Shouldn't Indonesia ban it on their end instead?

The entirety of Hozier's Unreal Unearth album. Again. What can I say, I'm hooked.

Divers by Joanna Newsom. I love the cyclical arrangement of her songs with the last line of her last song looping back to the first line of her first song. I think it really illustrates what she's trying to say about the nature of love and time.

I remember this case, so glad that their families have finally gotten some closure. The treatment of Orang Asal in this country is just shameful.

Ya, tapi dulu kat Reddit pun lurker je. Tentang !cafe, saya dah subscribe. Kebaikan fediverse ni adalah boleh access dari mana-mana.

A part of me suspects that it's also a lot more troublesome to apply to perform in Malaysia. The last time I checked, the organising company in Singapore just needs to have the right entertainment license and they can easily apply for a work permit for artists. Whereas Malaysia has this 39 page beauty.

And if you're holding your concert in Sabah/Sarawak you have to submit your application twice to PUSPAL and the state government. Yeah, it's not looking good for us.

They will very literally get cancelled by local government before any nutjob in the public gets to them.

If you skim the guidelines in the document I linked, one of the things artistes must do is submit a copy of all of their lyrics to be checked for inappropriate content. Then there's the clothing guidelines for male and female artistes, behavior guidelines, topic restrictions in banter etc.

After you pass all that, your ticket prices have to be adjusted to the local currency and buying power of the local market. 30% of your crew has to be local (understandable stipulation, but for Singapore you only need minimum 1 local to be hired and paid full salary to scale).

End of the day, we might have the facilities and expertise needed to mount a show, but the hassle is too much for too little return.

I understand the kids, nobody wants to open up new avenues for bullying.

We all know schools are so ineffectual when it comes to that and the students interviewed seem to have very well thought out and nuanced views on the issue.

I think the opinions of the students should hold more weight over that of the teachers and parents here. If they are alright with uniforms but want more relaxed hairstyle rules, that should be the way to go.

On the subject of parenting classes though, YES GOD PLEASE SOMEBODY DO IT.

I don't know how everyone feels about FoF leaks, but I for one am pretty excited if this is true.
