Well at least you’ve now discovered that Ukraine is not made up of neo nazis

The only way I see this work is how China does it, where they simply announce the state is taking over the goods.

Did a really stupid hike with a big group of friends. It was a few different groups, so some people didn’t know each other. We were 4+ hours out from civilization, had no cell reception, and were getting trashed by waves against a cliff face.

We had a few close calls, but by the end we had 4 people back to safety, 3 people stuck on a cliff freezing their butts off, and 6 people who didn’t come to the area. Two of the guys stuck on the cliff were dating (we’ll call them Shirley and Lyndon), the third guy only knew me out of the whole group (we’ll call him Alfred).

These 3 guys sat on that cliff for over an hour - The most athletic guy (we’ll call him James) swam to them from safety multiple times, but against the waves even James was puffed out. On the last swim out, Lyndon and Shirley realized if they didn’t get off the cliff now, James wouldn’t be able to come back to them another time. So they pushed Alfred off the cliff into the water (since Alfred was not moving otherwise), and the 4 of them swam to safety, all completely exhausted.

That night and for the rest of our camping trip, Alfred, Lyndon and Shirley stuck together like a unit. They changed the sleeping arrangement to share a tent, ate on the same end of the table, went to the washroom together, we even made fun of them for it. It was crazy.

So there’s definitely anecdotal experience that intensity forms bonds. That said, after the camping trip they didn’t stay in touch, so other factors do need to be at play for longevity too (living in the same region would probably help).

There’s a difference between a store built from wood and a store built from plastic that’s supposed to look like wood. It breathes a feeling of simplicity, and not profit based optimization. It’s something new.

There’s a sauna I go to with some pretty dumb features, and the entrance fee is way too cheap to be profitable. But I love it because it seems to not be built with profit in mind.

Damn, Lemmy.ml upvoting Paul Joseph Watson? Horseshoe theory must be real. I used to watch that guy when I was pro-Trump and rightwing

Love websites like this. They’re how I learned Regex and CSS so well :D

Looks like it was legit, but is now removed - which is strange because as CritGal points out, the price points don’t make sense.

From Patreon:

We don’t allow Patreon to be used for funding weapons or military activity. It is a violation of our policies, and so we have removed the page. No contributors were charged after February 1, 2022, and any funds in the account from before February will be refunded to contributors.

Really cool info.

If you go to China and get a Chinese citizenship, the Canadian gov’t won’t tell China that you have a Canadian citizenship. Also you can keep your Canadian citizenship while you live in China on a visa for a while. Besides, the best way to learn the language and culture is to yeet yourself over there :)

For two reasons -

  1. You only live once, so it’s not like it’ll be easier later
  2. It’s not actually that hard

A lot of people on this site are miserable and warship China - so like, they should just go? China is a cool place to live.

John Oliver has on numerous occasions completely omitted crucial points that defend the group he’s attacking - Which is really annoying, because most of the time he’s bang on.

Because Canadian government spending is a joke. It’s one of my goals to leave the country as I progress my career simply out of spite for how bad their spending is.

I don’t care about unification as much as not shooting each other

This one is by far the best out of any suggested on this thread (so far). Lots of TV shows & programs, shows how many seeders, and the website is simple and fantastic.

Exactly what I need!

Has lots of programs and shows, but lists things with 0 seeders and there’s no way to see how many seeders a file has from the website alone

Pretty good, but doesn’t have a lot of files/TV shows

Anyone else enjoying the higher gas prices?
Less people can afford to drive is a long term catalyst for making sustainable cities. A surprise, but a welcome one! (Yes, buses and subways use gas, but not as much as 12 individual cars going to the same location)

/r/Place Admin Abuse and the Orange Cat
https://v.redd.it/komiw3hmv5r81 Not my original words but can't find original source: >A reddit admin was caught abusing her position to set her tile cooldown to zero (note: cooldown is 5 minutes and 20 minutes for email verified and unverified users respectively) in order to erase an [Orange Cat](https://telegramchannels.me/stickers/s-marseycat) that was [previously posted by Reddit on twitter.](https://twitter.com/Reddit/status/1509990348378058755?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1509990348378058755%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Frdrama.net%2Fpost%2F56728%2Freddit-calling-marsey-on-place-a) >This cartoon cat was the creation of Anton Dimitriev, a Ukrainian artist who is currently living in Kharkiv that is besieged by the Russian military as we speak. >His art station: https://www.artstation.com/mine_flood >His deviantart: https://www.deviantart.com/anton-d/gallery >In addition, reddit permanently banned everyone who placed a tile in that area or tried to change her tiles to repair the Orange Cat. Merely placing pixels near the cat resulted in a personal ban, resulting in the bannings of users from /r/AnarchyChess as their subreddit logo bordered the Orange Cat. >[People who tried asking about their bans had their posts removed as well](https://i.imgur.com/TR0UQzm_d.webp?maxwidth=9999&fidelity=high) >https://old.reddit.com/r/place/comments/tukjit/why_was_my_account_shadowbanned_after_placing_a/ >Reddit went a step further and manually deleted the accounts so that [whenever you try to visit an account banned for placing a tile - you get this page.](https://i.imgur.com/DRtHWQg_d.webp?maxwidth=9999&fidelity=high) >[Example of an account manually deleted](https://old.reddit.com/user/Quad_RIP_Deux/) - they [last posted yesterday](https://old.reddit.com/r/Drama/comments/ttuqtd/100700/) proving it is a real account. As you can see, this was an active and real account that was not only banned, but deleted. >[2nd example](https://old.reddit.com/user/Treecko251/) - [proof](https://old.reddit.com/r/rugbyunion/comments/ttnf5w/iron_will_documentary_by_quins_about_will_evans/?context=3) >Other people caught on, resulting in posts calling it out that reached the front page. Initially the admins tried to do damage control by setting a filter on /r/place to automatically remove any post that mentions the cheating or the Orange Cat that was overwritten. Now they seem to be going back and forth on the issue after the public outcry grew too big to suppress. Impressively bad. Why create a pixel board with limited space if the admins will literally ban people for placing pixels over the area they want?

Lemmy.ml link blocked on LinkedIn for being "general malware"

MIT and BSD are cuckold licenses
I would say "change my mind" but I won't. I spent 5 years believing \*maybe\* I was missing something about them, but no, these are licenses selected 49.5% of the time for the wrong reason, 49.5% of the time because the original project devs were cucks, and 1% of the time because they're trying to replace a corporate dominant proprietary solution (which is the only valid usecase for these licenses). If you're a FOSS dev, have some self respect and choose a proper license.

I made some /c/Monero logos

Looking for an Open Source program to automatically seed latest project torrents
Hey Lemmy - I was downloading the KDE Neon edition ISOs yesterday night and noticed there weren't many seeders for the nightly edition. It gave me the idea to write a program that automatically grabs the .torrent file for lots of FOSS projects and throws them on my seedbox every night, but before I reinevent the wheel, does something like this exist? Qbittorrent has a Python API so the code isn't complicated, but with a bit of Google-foo I wasn't able to find something like this already, which kind of blows my mind tbh. Does Lemmy know?
