just seen a alt-right youtube thumbnail saying that non-binary genders are the path to communism and like... hell yea dude, i fuckin hope so

Why the hell aren't there free public showers?
How are you supposed to say you care what happens to the homeless if you aren't providing this service? We're at a point where "not getting hired for hygiene" is just code for "we don't hire people who aren't financially stable enough already to have their own private hygiene facilities".

this is no cause for alarm, i guarantee you twitter and facebook alone do MUCH more nefarious things with the DMs they regularly read and comb through, and i can at least speak for myself that ive never had the implication to go pawing through my instance's database to read PMs because like, ugh why thats gross lmao.

but, just never expect privacy on a platform that doesn't provide it, is all. the point of fedi is to publish, not to keep secrets.

anyway dipshit reply guys notwithstanding, periodic reminder and psa that

1 - fedi is just a bunch of postgres databases with a friendly clown interface on them and anything you post is copied to hundreds of them! this is cool and fine and "federation" but it is not private at ALL! there is zero encryption!

2 - as such yes any DM can be found in said database if an instance admin on one of the instances involved in the DM goes pawing through their database. DMs can also be reported by a participant. this is true of any service, incl twitter, facebook, etc because for those messages to be sent they need to... exist, in a database.

also, switching weapons in this game involves your character opening a bag and rummaging around for several seconds, and there are no "free 1 damage" items like pebbles or knives
*slash* 50 damage
*slash* 25 damage
*slash* 12.5 damage
*slash* 6.25 damage
*slash* 3.125 damage
*slash* 1.5625 damage
*rummages around in bag for dagger while hurrying away to avoid getting hit*

what if

"Zeno's Blade"
a JRPG weapon that deals damage equal to half of the enemy's remaining hitpoints (hitpoints in this supposed game are 64-bit floating points)

using makefile to convert flac to ogg? in this economy?

we generally do not unload cameras (remove the batteries) the way we might for a firearm whenever we set them down, as we should if we were to complete this metaphor, but we also don't want to lose the batteries tbh

US: are terrified of firearms, will never go near or handle them
ALSO US: handle cameras with firearm etiquette - keeping them aimed at the ground/away from people, keeping our finger off the shutter button when we aren't actively shooting, switching the safety (or power switch, whatever) automatically whenever we're done shooting

we kinda wish the Android developer option to forcekill the foreground app with a longpress of the back key kept a dedicated log, just so we can see how many times we use it to nuke firefox in a day

it's never because firefox is frozen, just that we want to get rid of everything we have open promptly because it's full of js malware and/or cognitohazards
