Barcelona city Hall was open to the public yesterday. Apart of being very beautiful, I learned a lot about the region's history

Got into chess recently and this pops up in my recommendation on YouTube xD

Artificial Intelligence will be as biased or more biased than the general population, never less

Your unemployed friend at 2 PM on a Tuesday:

This is a pre-historic village of "Alayotic" civilization. Apparently they were obcessed with building T-shapped structures. All I could think about was how perfect this place would be for a psychedelic rave

Happy new year everyone except the most homophobic county in Europe, that also happens to have the highest prevalence of HIV 🤔

Here is one of the Putler's minions, arguably a warlord with the lowest IQ in history, trying to overcompensate for having the tiniest penis in all of Caucasus. When asked about the state of his health, Kadyrov issued a "proof" of his good medical condition by doing the shittiest display of push ups I've seen im my life. The hysterical crowd is exctatic since this is how deep Chechens are into personality cult. They cheer their war criminal leader while he amuses them with a sad attempt of demonstrating his masculinity. As they say im Russian: "I thought we already reached the bottom, but suddenly, I heard someone knocking below me".

Happy Holidays everyone except jobanna rusnya ❤️💃🕺

Reason number 38657 to ditch Fazzebook. Their algorithm is broken or they are deliberately russophiles. Of all the living people on this Earth, Dugin is the one I hate the most probably, or at least in the top 3. Why the flying fuck would it be "suggested" to me?

I noticed a huge influx of new users which I immediately linked to the Musk/Twitter deal. After all, the second "wave" of newcomers was when Musk just announced his interest in the deal (the first one was after Trump got banned from Twitter). However I also noticed that the majority of the newcomers are scientists/academics and wondered why... Then I found out why... Science Mag wrote a fucking article about Mastodon! 🤣🤣

Not sure how I feel about it though. On one side, I welcome more meaningful content and interesting profiles that are actually "alive". On another hand, Twitter always was an algorithm-centered, biased, privately-owned company so leaving it only NOW is just hypocrisy imho. I feel like most of these newcomers don't really hate biases and censorship, they just hate when right-wingers do it (or even just people they personally perceive as right-wingers). Not to mention, they will quickly realize that the freedom of speech here is arguably more extreme than Twitter will ever have.

In any case, welcome. I am a scientist myself although I'm trying to distance myself from the "academic" dimension of it. Just try not to be insufferable.

Science Magazine reports on the stampede: "As Musk reshapes Twitter, academics ponder taking flight. Many researchers are setting up profiles on social media site Mastodon."

Ironically (?) the journalists identifies the researchers by their Twitter handle and their Twitter follower count. Revolutions are confusing. 😎
