I'm just trying to convey a point. You know that, and everyone else knows that and no one else but you has a problem with it. Just get the gist of what I am saying and add something meaningful to the discussion. Yes, when you put the metaphor or analogy under a microscope you can find flaws. But no one else is using a microscope; instead they are just adding value to the discussion.

Both Whataboutism and the accusation of it are used for Burying.

Being stuck in a pod by yourself makes it kinda difficult to get intimate with someone in the real world.

Most cultures stand out but American culture doesn't because basically everywhere has some sorta American influence.

Maybe not the highest quality shower thought, but I had been a long day.

Cats can live for 20+ years. Maybe there are a few left that were born in the 90s and are just chilling.

If a machine is never 100% efficient transforming energy into work because part of the energy is converted into heat, does it mean an electric heater is 100% efficient? @[email protected]

  1. Reddit sells its api for high and is about to go for an IPO, its economy bases entirely on the data made by the users/communities. It is the work of the public, get robbed by a small group of individuals. A living example of capitalism.

  2. Fediverse isn't enough to secure the publicity and usage of public data. What if the host of Lemmy instance also releases the snapshots of all the posts and modlogs, everyday, in the form of bittorrent? Only by doing so, we are safe from the host erasing public knowledge and data brokers.

Being autistic in our world means for me that I have to behave a certain way, speak a certain code and keep certain aspects of myself hidden or risk to get attacked, verbally or physically. I repeat this over and over, day in day out.

Meanwhile I am looking forward to hosting another game of dnd this saturday and it just occured to me that our reality is sad and pathetic while turning to the internet and people outside this oppressive „society“ is like looking at a piece of art. Popping colors and various shapes and interesting objects to behold.

It might be seasonal depression speaking here but it was really palpable right now.

Anyone relate?

How do I sell my rights to social security benefits? How can I buy someone else's?

The business could be marketed as a "Social Security Advance" and charge a percentage.

The short version of the Unix philosophy is basically, "Do one thing, and do it well".

Michelle Rodriguez basically plays the same basic character in every movie: tough girl / tomboy who doesn't take crap from anyone, usually wears a tank top, and dies about as often as Sean Bean.

And it's not a bad thing.

While I haven't seen every film she's done, I have seen a lot of them, and she gives a stellar performance every time.

So she may play the "same character" over and over, but she does it very well.
