Stardust,

PugJesus wasn't saying there would be no murders of minorities if Trump loses. They phrased things poorly, but what they meant was minorities are going to be thrown into concentration camps which is what the fascist nazis did.
Sarcasm implies you mean the opposite of what you said, generally:
'Fascism is when there are murders'
Yes. That is not the sole thing about fascism, but murdering everyone not in your personal social group is kind of a big deal in fascism. You making this statement sarcastic does not reflect well on you or your ability to wield the English language. If you wanted it to come across the way you wanted it to come across, you should have said 'Fascism is about when there are murders and nothing else'.
However, this would have revealed a deep misunderstanding of what your opponent was actually implying, and, ironically, strawmanning them.

I tried to make a post about this but kbin vomited an error. XD

Anyone have a favorite tuxemon? One of my favorites is Hoarseshoo, weird eldritch abomination horse, another is Vulpyre. Eyesore is also nifty, really monstrous looking. Bigfin has some gorgeous art.

Stardust,

Dunno if you want a serious answer, but 'press start' titlescreens that start up an animation if you leave it unpressed too long are a throwback to when if a screen showed the same image for too long, it would fry the image on to the screen and leave a little ghost image, so screensavers were a screen saver. This allowed one to demo software and just leave it running without worrying about damaging the product hardware.
These days however it is totally unnecessary.

New homeowner, just sorta winging it... (lemmy.world)

Having never owned a house or really had a yard of my own, I got pretty excited and decided to do some ad-hoc landscaping. Built some raised beds for vegetables, and just laying in some organic shaped in-ground beds for low water decorative plants. Gonna fill the rest in with gravel. Any pointers?

Stardust,

Make a small area, fence it off if you must, where you just let stuff grow wild and do zero maintenance (except maybe removing nasty invasives). The local wildlife will thank you even if it's just a couple feet. I did that and I get a ton of bees and butterflies.

Stardust,

While arguably Batman could use his wealth better (especially in versions where he's richer than Luthor, because you don't get to be richest guy without being a major asshole who does things like force workers to pee in bottles), the other guy/gal also has a point. The comic book universe isn't our universe, it has aliens invading and Spwecial People who have to be fought by other special people. Batman is basically super-powered the way he can run a marathon, run a chemical analysis and synthesize a new cure for something overnight, and jump 10 feet, they just pretend otherwise.

You might enjoy Harley Quinn where Batman gets arrested for tax fraud.

Stardust,

The thing about his movie is that he was like, almost okay. Iron Man I was about him learning that selling weapons = bad. He could have continued his moral development.
Instead, we got him fighting Captain America over a very stupid implementation of 'oversight' (coming from the guy who refuses to let gov. oversee his iron man development), being creepy to some random boy he just met (actually twice - first Peter and then some kid I don't remember; in a better set of movies I don't think Peter would be very thrilled to realize Iron Man was advocating for Peter to get outed in a national registry), and having a snit fit about how he doesn't want to help Unsnap people who died because he personally is OK with his future with his daughter who may or may not be a robot he built to mime having humanity.

What makes him really insufferable for me is his fans who think Captain America is EVIL for daring to snub poor Tony, and that Tony should go date Loki (no I'm not kidding; while I am happy with Loki being queer, I really can't see the Marvel Universe Tony being a good date for, well, anyone ever, nor Loki being a good date until he works out his genocidal tendency issues at which point he threatens to become alas a much less interesting character).

Stardust,

I love the version of Superman where he growing up and is friends with Luthor and he's like 'I cannot tell him my secret because my dad would disapprove' and it's got accidental closeted queer vibes.
And there's this comic book (not in the same continuity) where Luthor is this mad genius who escapes from prison easily and Clark interviews him and he's like "I like you Clark, you're so humble and down to Earth, but I hate Superman who is the opposite of that."
and then Lois likes Superman more than Clark, at least to start with, in some versions I think.
And then with Brainiac there's the possible storyline of 'this computer has a lot of information stored on my lost culture but he is also an existential risk to all sapients everywhere in the galaxy ahhhhggg'.
And how will Clark deal with an environment where everyone is hostile to immigrants when he is one himself and also dedicated to upholding the law?
And the first comic where he interacts with Batman is actually fairly good: Batman threatens to bomb people if Superman unmasks him and Superman is like 'oh shit, he is not lying, I can hear his heartbeat', but Batman was actually threatening to explode himself. And the cartoon where Batman is fighting Brainiac and his costume gets ripped to reveal he was Superman all along was hilarious: "I did not predict this possibility." The Justice League series in general (part of the same continuity) was pretty good actually.

I like the potential stories there. There's so many emotional possibilities. Stories where he just punches stuff are indeed boring. He is, frankly, under-utilized as a character imo because many writers don't understand that, or think the solution is to make a version of him that is evil which still involves him punching stuff, or because they're scared to actually touch on political issues like immigration or queerness. (can you imagine how many people would explode if Luthor was an ex-boyfriend for both him and Lois and they bonded over how shitty Luthor was as a date lol.)

Stardust,

As someone who has actually tried to get government assistance, I suspect it was removed for being misleading, not because they actually believe there is 'no healthcare in the US'. Don't strawman people.
Poor people often cannot get healthcare, such as via lack of documentation, lack of means to actually get to the places they need to go, etc. In my case, the government invented a completely fictional job for me that I did not have and declared it meant I was not eligible, and gave me a time limit to respond that expired before I had the actual chance to respond. The window for applications is a very short time period and I live with people who frequently do not give me my mail before winging it some place random, so it can take me a week to find my own mail.
Someone living without a mailbox would have had zero opportunity: in that regard, I was 'lucky'.

Stardust,

Uhh it means the hungry person is no longer hungry. That's pretty meaningful to the hungry person.
If you mean it doesn't mean anything to you, then that's your deal.

Stardust,

Resetting games is something you can do for every version. I think the code involves button presses at the start menu: UP, B, and X simultaneously.

Stardust,

Dead people may not have rights, but their very living family definitely does. When my dog died, I got upset when my mom kept trying to shove reminders in my face when all I wanted to do was forget for awhile - I can't imagine how I'd feel about an actual human being.

How would you like it if you were grieving and someone posted some tasteless shit about your loved one? (assuming you aren't a sociopath, of course, which may be a bit much considering this is the internet)

Stardust,

Because most sex workers are grown ass adults and should have the right to do what they want with their own bodies without getting arrested for it? Not everywhere is as backwards as the USA.

What they should really do is permanently ban US tourists from it. /s

Stardust,

I love Thrive! How many games let you be an amoeba?

Stardust,

Not bad, but the second one on the right is visually just a touuuuch too cluttered for my eyes/tastes. If the text had a slight transparent overlay/square background of white it'd probably work better, but would obscure more, idk.

Stardust,

This is interesting! Looks like you haven't updated in quite awhile though.
It doesn't look like you have any sprite art. You can check out OpenGameArt for some nice placeholders (or permanent if you so choose.), and honestly, I would consider using a couple Tuxemon - they are generally under creative commons and it would speed things up. 'Tuxemon but with more fantasy and in C' isn't the worst idea.

Stardust,

So, the Higgs is, if I recall right, sensitive to the masses of other particles, and I don't think this has much to do with gravity per say (gravity just reacts to mass-energy to curve spacetime) but the fact that Higgs can decay to other particles and also feels the 'Higgs' effect/field of which the Higgs boson is kind of like a left over. The Higgs mass can thus 'blow up' from contributions from other particles, because in a quantum field a particle will potentially fluctuate to several particles and then back again, and of course, you can't decay into something if you are less energetic than it. [edit: although that might not be important, if 'virtual particles' heavier than you vanish before anything can measure them. actually now that I recall I think it was mainly virtual particle contributions that mattered here.]

I very hazily recall that it is possible to have some mass from non-Higgs effect sources, for instance quarks binding to each other contributes most of a proton's mass rather than the Higgs effect, so the Higgs boson could have /some/ mass even if we turned off all the Higgs bits except for the boson itself, but my impression was that it was majority from Higgs interactions, from which the Higgs boson is relatively 'unprotected' from being ballooned up. A counterpart particle can provide counterterms to help keep mass low, like a seesaw, but the standard model Higgs has no such counterpart unless you introduce something extra.

Stardust,

They briefly fixed this with Rayquaza where it just gave you a shield instead of insta-score, then deliberately made it worse by lowering Rayquaza's HP and upping the shield and giving a faster score speed so Rayquaza became a worse Zapdos if you can believe that. They also added free item maximizers, about 3 of them. So very briefly, it wasn't pay to win if you made good choices on what items to max. But they periodically release broken 'mons that are pay to buy for about a week, so it periodically becomes pay to win again.

That said, a huge number of times I lost games because my team mates did not understand when __not__to murder Zapdos/Ray, when we were far ahead. If you play right and protect it until you've completely wiped out the enemy team, you can then rip it in about 5 seconds and you can see if the enemy respawn timer will come up in that time. The team mate stupidity in this game is immense.

Stardust,

Not necessarily. In the unlikely scenario it was tastier, it could even fetch a better price despite not being the same. In some circumstances (really stringy old meat from a stressed animal) this is not so unlikely, actually. There is plenty of 'real meat' I have no desire to touch twice.

Stardust,

The world's tallest bean plant was 46 feet tall!
Beans are related to clover, peanuts, alfalfa, peas, and lupin.

Neanderthals used pulses when cooking meals 70,000 years ago.
