Sometimes I wonder how it would feel like to be an ordinary citizen in the star trek universe. Every week you hear the weirdest stuff in the news. Oh, the enterprise crew literally found god and then killed him? Well okay then. Some cyborg zombies tried to eradicate us? Sure sure. Now we're at war with an empire of shape shifters from the other side of the galaxy? Whatever you say. It's only about 10% weirder than the real news we get in the present.

I'm not an expert but my instinct says you should never take any digital device over the chinese border. No matter in which direction.

Thanks for sharing this. I would like to know where you found the picture.

When you have enough personal info about a population you can engineer advertisement so effectively that you can convince that population of almost everything. See Brexit.

I started using Linux Mint about 5 years ago because I'm interested in tech and wanted to mess around with it a bit. Now I'm staying on Linux Mint because I don't wanna deal with Microsoft's bullshit ever again. No more ads, forced updates, surveillance and crashes. Just a damn solid OS that does its job.

Does the American accent or British accent sound better?

I grew up with a thick Australian accent with a drawl I dislike, and have been consciously trying to change it for a while. The problem is I tried to make it sound more American at first but keep getting drawn to speaking “Britishly”. Now it’s a Frankenstein of all 3 accents and I don’t know what to go with....

This is just my very biased opinion but if somebody has a US-american accent I immediately respect them less lol. It's an instinct.

I understand what you mean. If we asked like 2% of all active users (which might be enough), you'd get a pop up on average once every 4 years, which is probably not enough to annoy anybody.

There are probably two reasons:

  1. It wouldn't change how the public thinks about them. People wouldn't understand how voting machines work, even if they were open source. Do you expect normal people to look at and understand code? Also people who have lost hope in democracy and want to believe that the election was a hoax will continue to do so anyway.

  2. It's probably more comfortable for the manufacturers of those machines to keep them closed source. Why would they show the world how they work? That would disclose potential flaws which is bad for their reputation. And it would make it easier for competition to emerge.

p.s. I agree that voting machines are bollocks.

While I kind of understand the allure of messing with idiots, I think it's also a waste of time.
It's completely counterproductive to make angry people even more angry.

Fühlt ihr euch europäisch? German

Alter Hut, aber mich würden eure Meinungen interessieren. Für mich persönlich ist die europäische Identität sehr wichtig, nicht als Abgrenzung von anderen, sondern als Gemeinschaft der verschiedenen europäischen Identitäten. Ich bin persönlich viel in Europa umhergekommen und es hat mich jedesmal sehr bereichert. Für...

Ja, ich bin Europäer, aber mir ist auch klar, dass ich damit zu einer sehr kleinen Minderheit gehöre.
