Hello! o/

Microplastics found in every human semen sample tested in study (www.theguardian.com)

Microplastic pollution has been found in all human semen samples tested in a study, and researchers say further research on the potential harm to reproduction is “imperative”. Sperm counts in men have been falling for decades and 40% of low counts remain unexplained, although chemical pollution has been implicated by many...

If the great filter ends up being plastic I'm gonna be upset.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. The first plastics were invented in the 1800s, long before we ever sent a man to space. Could other intelligent species have made the same mistake? Could we have gotten to space without plastic, or was it a nessessary step? If the path to space travel involves poisoning your homeworld, then that may explain why the universe seems quiet.

I think you are conflating tankie with communist. They are not the same.

While that is true, I fail to see why you think Blahaj is fascist. Saying "fuck tankies" isn't exclusive to fascists.

Hope alone will get you nowhere but beneath an authoritarian's boot, figuratively or literally. Please be pragmatic.

Wow

In what way does Facebook/Threads share or receive data from kbin/lemmy- is there any clear explanation of federation and how all this interacts?

Full disclosure needs to happen asap. What is kbin/lemmy hiding? Threads is clearly a fascist vehicle. Zucc says he will remove toxicity, but he intends to do this by only showing posts that he wants particular users to see. This is clearly censorship under his control. Pls show and confirm how Threads is banned from data used...

Threads isn't federating yet. Afaik the zucc hasn't explained how he plans to implement activitypub, so we simply don't know.

What will Meta gain from fediversing?

I don’t understand what Meta will gain from participating in the fediverse? Their ultimate goal is to make money of Threads and I just don’t see how encouraging an open federation will help them do it? Even 3Eing the fediverse will not do them much good as they already have sooo much traffic already that killing the...

Hi! Greetings from Kbin! The fact that you can post from Shitjustworks to Pawb, and then we can respond from other sites is fucking awesome. I'm mostly gonna just lurk as that's my thing. Cool sona!

I would say tucker's claimed views are mainstream. His show was the most popular on fox news, which is a large corporation. Somewhere around 1/3rd of Americans hold views similar if not the same as what he broadcast. I don't believe the comparison between him and Jimmy Dore are accurate, as Carlson is a household name. I don't even know who Dore is. Then again, that might just be because I come from a very conservative area.

I don't think you should delete your comments. Part of what I miss from older reddit was seeing people discuss topics. I don't want kbin to be a place without that.

Reddit's users and moderators are revolting

They sure are /s
At the very least, some people might get some fresh air for the next few days while a large chunk is offline. I will.

I just joined too, got a cloudflare "bad gateway" error on the first attempt. Seems like the server isn't used to seeing this many people!
