I am fully aware how dumb this one is and I offer zero apologies for posting it.

I gave up on online dating last year and I won't be back. If that means I'll end up dying alone, I'm honestly more comfortable with that idea than suffering though anymore of the bullshit that's Tinder/Bumble/Hinge/etc. It's become such a miserable experience for both sides (men and women).

As someone who had used online dating on and off for 10+ years, I can tell you one of the big problems - money and greed. I know it's always easy to just "blame capitalism", but I've seen first-hand the paradigm shift from an actual useful service (i.e. a way to meet people that you would otherwise not meet) to the blatant greed it's become. The dating apps are so obviously profiteering off people's loneliness it's fucking disgusting. Back before Match bought everyone up, these services used to actually be okay for what they were.

100% agree. I really enjoy the app and Kuro has done amazing work, but this logo misses the mark tbh. I'm definitely no graphics designer (just someone who knows enough to make shitty memes), but the alignment is all over the place with this logo.

Lemmy.ca has been defederated from Lemmygrad ever since I've been a member (June), so that's not anything new. Looks like it goes back to at least September of last year.

They’re talking kind of three months in the summer and two to three weeks in the winter for skiing.

To drop 32 million on a house (which is mind bogglingly in and of itself) and only spend three months in it? Motherfuckers out there with way too much goddamn money. That's ridiculous.

Looking at the pot, that's legitimately the first idea I had if OP wants to go the malicious compliance route. I'd be tempted to build a table around the plant pot. Something like this (but for outdoors):

r/place is an interactive art project run by reddit on April Fools. It ran in 2017 and 2022. Now they've brought it back for 2023 (it was supposed to have happened on April Fools this year, but various....things....happened). It kicked off again today and as expected, it's gained attention for the bad timing (protests, tone deaf admin, etc..) and people have coordinated to write "fuck spez" messages and other things (at some point, there was a guillotine + reddit's head).

There's definitely going to be more reddit exoduses. Over the last 10 years, there were several moments where this could've happened but there weren't any viable options (except Voat, but that went to the Nazis 👎). Now that there's Lemmy, Squabbles, Tildes, etc..., I think people's appetite for putting up with reddit's bullshit is a lot less. I think the next big one will be when reddit introduces the new "awards" system in a couple of months.

I knew someone who threw themselves off a bridge. Well, I knew their sibling. I was there when the call came through from the RCMP that they were missing. Then the call that the body was found. To say that it destroyed that family would be an understatement. I remember that my friend had to go down with their mother and identify what was left of the body. They were (understandably) never quite the same after that.

I don't know if I support expanding MAID to people with mental health issues or not. I have a feeling their sibling would've found a way to kill themselves one way or another. Maybe something more dignified would've been easier on the family? I don't know.

I'm sure there's an argument to be made about not buying things you can't afford, but looking at the graph in that article, people are going to get fucked on mortgage renewals. Anyone that locked in for 3/4/5 years are going to be renewing between now and the next couple of years and going from BOC rate of 0.25% to 5% or more is going to hurt.

Someone I know is looking at renewing their mortgage in the next couple of months and they're already looking at a jump from 3% to >6%.

I'm really digging the realistic take on the yellow suit. I think it works well.

Also, I hope there's going to be a scene where he rips the sleeves off. Long sleeved Logan feels wrong 😂

A lot of us just left a site because it was ruined by corporate greed. I don't think corporations belong in the fediverse. If there's a vote, I vote for defedding with Threads.
