With the way the world's going, is there even a point to anything anymore?

Climate is fucked, animals continue to go extinct even more, our money will be worth nothing the coming years… What motivation do I even have to care to keep going? The world is ran and basically owned by corrupt rich people, there’s poverty, war, etc. It makes me sick to my stomach the way to world is. So I ask, why bother...

This aligns very well with my own philosophy about life, you couldn't have said it better!

The world is pretty fucked up, it always has been and so it will continue to be.
And none of it really matters either, it's all just a tiny flash of light in the darkness that will soon fade away to nothing.

However, here we are, living in a beautiful planet that was blessed with life, so many different plants and animals, sounds, smells and tastes, music and art, being able to talk with others, laugh, cry, love. We're only microscopic creatures that live on the tiniest spec of dust imaginable, but to our tiny eyes there is plenty of beauty to be found. And for as long as we are able to see that beauty, there is a point to it for us, we can try our best to enjoy what we have for the little time that we have it, before we finally become one with the universe.

I'll believe it when I see it, but if it does happen then I hope this is just the beginning of brighter days for the LGBT+ community in Greece

This is why critical thinking is such an essential skill. So many people out there are convinced about things with bullshit arguments, just because the person talking is charismatic/confident or popular and influential.

Note: Critically thinking doesn't mean denying everyone and everything and holding controversial beliefs in order to feel smarter than others, it often starts with admitting your very own mistakes first. Just like with other's arguments you should be applying the same checks to your own thinking and notice your own fallacies to correct them.

They don't though, otherwise there would be no need for a justice system altogether. There are "people" out there that have wet dreams of lgbt people being incriminated and women having less rights than men, the rest of society should be protected from them instead of putting them in government positions.

I certainly hope so, but one side (which I won't name because I think it's obvious enough) doesn't seem content with just living their lives, they want to force themselves on the lives of others as well so that the whole country will be just as shitty as they are and then they won't have to feel so bad about it.

That's some exceptional mental gymnastics right there, keep thinking like that and you'll go far

What perfectly normal thing can't you be around anymore due to something you experienced?

Mine is a pretty tame example: I never minded the smell of garlic was fine around it… but I took a job for DHL and they had these large tubs of garlic for horses that had to go out to people. There were about 10 of them coming down the belt....

Both this and 'you are my sunshine' just instantly flip an emotional switch for me, I don't know why they make me want to cry but they just do

I can't take cars like this seriously, I just assume whoever drives them is a total piece of shit

We don't leave things here, it's an open office and we sit on different desks every time. It would very likely be stolen :P

The one you sent seems a bit much for my use, but from what I see there are surely better backpacks out there than the one I use, it's worth it to make some research there. It probably makes more sense to go to physical stores and try them out with my laptop and keyboard so I see what they're really like.

Nope

That's kinda like saying, "If someone pulls a knife on me in the street and asks for my wallet, nothing will happen because killing is illegal".

Google owns both Chrome and your password manager, at any time they are perfectly capable of pulling the plug on them, leaking data, charging you for them, etc.

I love how unnecessary it was to the overall context lol

Can't wait for the 'testicular examination' voting option to be added to Lemmy

2000 Gen Z, I grew up with them as well during 2013

I seriously hope that they won't be able to while they're warmongering in the east and keep on abusing the Greek borders to the west and claim that Greek lands belong to them. If they stop their bully behavior and play nice with their neighbors then I'll be glad to welcome them and keep history in the past.

No idea about mechanical engineering, but Python is so easy to learn that you have a huge benefit over cost (in time) for it

Sadly the only mega project that might save us is getting rid of unchained capitalism

I've moved completely to Arch and I don't think I'm going back. It supports every game I've wanted to play up until now except Fall Guys, worst case I'll set up a small Windows partition or VM for the couple of exceptions that I still want to play

This is pretty standard in concerts, just shove your way through some people to go someplace better
