I’d tell you a Fibonacci joke, but it’s probably as bad as the last two you’ve heard combined.

@freemo on the opposite end: a bus ticket costs 0.0017 grands, you're 0.035 millennia, and the rallye had 6 cohorts.

@freemo I'm often dumbfounded by these labels. They really get in the way. Many protestants, who push for reforms and repentance, feel conservative is a good label for them.
Many radical liberals want change more rabidly than they want measurable progress.
It is just as ridiculous as the Republicans trying to balance the budget by voting for tax cuts...

@freemo @debbie @shit in the early 1990s, the conservatives in Romania were the communists.

Really cool chart I just found that shows the location of various organs and their referred pain. Basically the location on the body where pain inflicted on the specific organ would be, which is not where the organ itself is located.

seems like the experiment of growing oyster mushrooms on simple recycled cardboard is going good, they are pinning easily... not sure how nutritious they'll come up to be though. Any idea on how the boost it?

@radiohacktive thanks... This makes sense although I'll need to learn more...

@4of92000 @freemo I guess you owe them sympathy and empathy. Like everyone else.

Hi everyone, I just tried Mastodon out since yesterday (I heard about it for a while tho).
I'm finishing my master degree in CS next year in France. I'm a FOSS enthousiast and a great fan of formal methods (in CS at least).

Short term: I'm learning Rust (for those into CS stuff you should definitly take a look at it if you haven't already) and doing a chess AI (a modest one compared to what we do today).

Medium term: Work and live for a while in China to learn about those guys, I think we still don't understand each other well enough.

Long term: try to improve the way we as humans interact with Big Data, AI and computers in general because I think that our usage is not sane yet (and especially for Big Data).

I didn't plan to introduce myself but I guess that's a kind of tradition. I'm looking forward to read and write interesting stuff with you guys 😀

@radiohacktive "moderates to thermal energy" - I'm not familiar with this expression.
Do you mean the neutron beam is contained by the Aluminium and it heats up... Or, what do you mean?

@joe yes, very sad. But please note, the cnet article title is misleading

Pope Saint John Paul II meets with Mehmet Agca, the man who attempted to assassinate him, 1983.

@Surasanji @freemo @hashtaggrammar @commandelicious without moralizing on suicide or self harm, it seems that some idiot could find it fun to make the apology of suicide or self harm. One guy once deserves support. A whole tribe of self harm advocates probablt should be banned...

What a social network is for:
- See interesting stuff from friends and people that interest you
- Cute animal photo of the day
- Feel a positive human connection

What it ain’t for:
- Witch hunts
- Make up bullshit about strangers you never met
- Brand engagement

@arteteco you mean is a higher pressure than climate change, or higher pressure than the climate change driven refugee crisis?

To be honest, I have no idea how my skills help in any of this. Just a regular consumer making choices is probably my default position...
