politics mood, - 

i'm so tired of seeing otherwise cool and smart people completely lose their minds whenever partisan (or intra-partisan) politics come about.

this applies to everyone, no matter if socialist, progressive, liberal, centrist, conservative or anything else.

if i ever make any of you feel uncomfortable with my online behavior, please just tell me to stop instead of silently blocking or muting me.

...i don't have the best social skills :-(

"I'm currently standing in the hangar bay of the UAC power plant complex, located on Phobos. Normally this is a facility buzzing with life, delivering 666 GigaWatts of energy to science facilities all across this moon. But right now, things may have gotten a bit out of hand..."

political position: i'm not an anarchist, but i think anarchists are cool as heck and would probably support them over other groups if current society were to fail

what kind of country is this where cops can sue protest movement for the expenses caused by protests, but people are powerless against government in case of the collateral damage of its own policies?

people and companies should be able to sue @roscomnadzor@twitter.com for damages whenever their internet blocks end up hurting innocent websites, like right now when my @Bandcamp@twitter.com app can't download cover art for albums

also, why is the typography on the title "the rise of skywalker" so bad? the "y" is wider than the "w", the "s" is wider than the "r", and all the letters in general have weird inconsistent lines...

It’s been almost two years and it still blows my mind that one of the major plot points of the last Star Wars movie (the Emperor sending out a broadcast to tell everyone he’s alive) is never actually seen or heard in the movie, it was a Fortnite tie-in event.

decided to go back to the mahjong club. they changed locations once again, now instead of a lfgs it's in a hobbyist space of some sorts that also hosts chess and go clubs, apparently

any kid born after 2020 can't cook... all they know is tiddy, poop they diapers, fuss, be adorable, drink warm milk & nap

in the original version for billiards, the game was supposed to have over 2 quadrillion balls, but the idea wad abandoned due to physical space concerns. the remnant of this idea is in the game's name: in the long scale, a "billiard" is a thousand million million (10^15).

then again, there's things like proof-of-storage and proof-of-bandwidth, which are just as bad as proof-of-work

if i were a major national regulator, i'd specifically make all _proof-of-work_ crypto transactions illegal, bc i can still see some use in cryptocurrencies, but i can also see why china decided to do a more blanket ban.

RT @AFP@twitter.com

China's central bank rules all crypto transactions are illegal

religion 

it seems to me like jews really like to debate every detail of their holy books, and honestly, sounds cool as heck, at least better than the evangelical approach of claiming their interpretation is the only truth and everybody else might as well be worshipping satan

been thinking about timezones... is there a place in the world that has two timezones at once? like, say, a place disputed by two nations, and both nations think it's in their timezone and so it can be 8:00 or 9:00 depending on your position in that conflict?
