@ActNormalOrElse Philly is the best city in the US and every other city sounds lame and boring as fuck after living there for a decade. The best is when peeps from NYC start talking shit like “bruh I’ll drive to Manhattan, party for the weekend and LEAVE bruh, enjoy your $4,000 studio”

Roger Marshall's argument for not raising the minimum wage is that he had a minimum wage job and it paid for his entire college tuition.

When he graduated from Kansas State University, tuition was $898/year. It is now $10,000/year. The minimum wage then was $3.35. It's now $7.25

Thanks @buzzkill@diaspora.schoenf.de watched the whole video again it has been a while since I've seen it last.

That's how far they/we have come:

English is a hot mess. Why is it "teak," but then "steak"?
That's rhetorical, but English is so full of such nonsense, it makes helping kids learn to read both amusing and nightmarish.
I mean, seriously, "lead" and "lead"? Ugh.
Oh my god, you guys are wonderful!!
See The Tough Coughs as he Ploughs the Dough by Dr. Seuss. ^.^


I have to admit "It's the self-cleaning feature!" sounds so much better than "spastic colon."

As a general rule, most of us could stand to be more sensitive in terms of how we treat others and less sensitive when it comes to how others treat us.


Pascal was the 1st high level language I learned and the 1st I formally learned. My usage of it fell away when I learned C/C++ and Java in the mid-1990s but I did recently do "30 days of Pascal" using the Free and FOSS Lazarus IDE though. Happy 50th!
Borland Turbo Pascal became Turbo Pascal for Windows, and
then Delphi which, for me, was a programmer's dream. The first 'proper' IDE I'd worked with. I tried to like Kylix, its successor, but failed. Lazarus was based on Delphi and supports most of its libraries, I believe. I installed it once, to take a look at, but found that I couldn't be tempted back into programming.
I took a Pascal course in HS. I didn't have a PC at home so it was more or less a participation trophy so I could graduate. However, I did meet an amazingly brilliant Russian (or maybe Czech, can't remember) exchange student who had learned advanced US college level math back home and wrote some pretty cool stuff during lunch breaks.

As the world keeps looking for ways to address the Google/Facebook duopoly on online advertising, the root-cause solution is still right here in front of us: Ban targeted advertising! Make all that data hoarding and privacy exploitation unprofitable.

Yup! Usually the performance between the two doesn't require the clever solution, especially with modern compilers and architectures. For the few cases it does then get creative. Otherwise choose readability over cleverness. I won't mention Perl now...😀 #programming

So, you like entertaining bullshit... 😀


Not to get all OPSEC obsessed but...in movies/tv when you watch a character write something out do they have some random staffer do that so you don't have samples of the actor's handwriting? They aren't sensitive to how you can capture fingerprints with HD but just curious.
@neqone I doubt this is a consideration, but maybe there’s a career to be made in operational security consulting for Hollywood!
...interesting, and I'd never thought of this. You need to find a actor who has made notes in multiple movies and then find a graphologist to run some analysis. Might be a challenge! 🤣


Yes, 300,000 dead. Torture perpetrated by puppet dictators trained in the United States of America and placed into power by us. Now there is something to be proud of, eh?

Thanks to @_broadcasters I'm watching #TheStand 1994 for the umpteenth time. Episode 2. First time since reading the novel. Never realized that one of the first times Tom Cullen does "M-O-O-N" he says "M-O-O-O-N" (extra O)..."that spells deaf and dumb!"
Do you think that's significant, or just the actor flubbing the line?
@neqone Enjoy the '94 version so much more than the '21. The '94 even got a Blu-ray release finally!

Oooh! 😀
😂😂

People with an M1 mac, please run `brew install smartmontools && sudo smartctl --all /dev/disk0` and report back (and what kind of usage you make of the machine, especially RAM).

I'm at <600GBW on my MBP, but I don't use it heavily.

Trump calling into cable news to give his take on Tiger's car crash is the exact level of responsibility and power the man should have.

Folks who have gender reveal parties make me worry that they would be the kind of parents who would strictly police their children's conformity to narrowly defined gender roles.

It's good there are republicans putting forth a compromise plan instead of sitting on their hands and Manchin is right that WV minimum wage should be about $11 but cost of living means NYC should be $25. COL by county! No one should object to that!

That's neat: I like how it forces the tiles to be flat to each other (which I've had troubles with.) It does lift already placed tiles so I'm wondering if they'll end up less solidly placed.
I can't believe i got an earworm from that song after it cycled a few times.

cnn.com/2021/02/22/bus… Probably long overdue. Im sure they'd be happy to suggest a cool cherokee word to rename it but their people aren't a comodity to buy or sell
"Our vehicle names have been carefully chosen and nurtured over the years to honor and celebrate Native American people for their nobility, prowess, and pride,"

Honor and celebrate them how? Do you give a portion of your profits to the tribe whose name you use? Did you ask them to use it beforehand. You can't honor someone while actively excluding them.
