I have orthostatic hypotension which causes very similar symptoms and this was the first thing that came to mind. worst case scenario I’m sure they’d have accessible seats for disabled people that we could use, however I highly doubt these would ever make it past marketing. luckily safety in aviation is still taken seriously and these would be awful in a crash so it’d never be approved by EASA/FAA etc


This is too much for me to read right now, but i appreciate how in depth it is and that you gave links. I’ll look into it sometime soon

edit: so i just read it, and the only thing i can think is will we have enough time to actually switch to renewable energy? Most of the biggest polluting countries are capitalist and are they really gonna invest in public transport and solar panels etc when its not profitable? even if its theoretically possible to switch to renewable, i’m sure capitalism will get in the way and make it harder or impossible in the time we have

nuclear has the potential i think under capitalism to be adopted, especially because its exportable (in the case of thorium molten salt) and it would buy us time we need. the alternative being switching to communism but we cant rely on that as a main solution since its so hard/unlikely

plus more people die from pollution than in nuclear accidents right? i mean pollution kills so so many people and a reactor in the middle of a desert is only gonna be able to kill a handful, its not a permanent solution but its better than what we have and its realistic in the timeframe and system were stuck with for now


What do you think to the thorium molten salt reactors that china is developing/building? They’re better for the environment, significantly safer than old designs, and their waste cant be used to make weapons. I understand renewable green energy is the goal but dont you think that any effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is good, even if its not a sustainable alternative? Moving to renewable isnt something we can do easily and buying ourselves time with the technology we have right now is only positive imo


Parabola is very based, now i dont use an nvidia gpu i might switch, currently on vanilla arch


This is unrelated to your post but what is yewtube? At first i thought it was an alternative like odysee but when i looked at it it seemed more like a mirror of youtube, the likes count and view count being too high

edit: nevermind after a bit of digging i found an info page


Focus on the present day and the country you two live in. Defending people who are dead and countries that are not your own is pointless with someone who is already anti-communist. Focus on pointing out the hypocrasies of your own country and the events and people that are around today. It’s easier to convince someone when it applies directly to them .i.e. look how bad our government is and why, rather than look how good stalin and the USSR is.

This way you can be more productive with your political discussions, and there’s less to disagree on because ultimately their opinion on stalin doesnt matter much, their opinion on the country you live in though and the system there is much more important, and you say they’re already anti-capitalist which is most important


What a great way to make russians and belarusians hate you more than they already do.


Yeah arch is one of the best, but the learning curve is something most people just dont care for and it can discourage new users who struggle with it. Its best to start of with something easier and then go for arch if you want to later, unless you want to learn and challenge your self a little, its not hard its just a barrier that most dont want or need.

EndeavourOS is great because it has the installer and all the benefits of arch, i see no reason to discourage it


Fedora is my pick for beginners:

  1. It has lots of packages available, like ubuntu you can find .rpm available online pretty easy
  2. It has a good out of the box experience, not overly customised so you get to do that yourself (if you want, its not necessary)
  3. Its got a graphical installer, however its not the best installer. Still way better installation experience than arch or gentoo though for example
  4. Its got up to date software
