Typical. Any discussion of banning weapons of war isn't even had because it's so futile. Instead, the proposed solution is more surveillance of our communication. Would anyone blame the postal service if these messages had gone via snail mail? Then don't turn the blame on facebook. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2022/may/25/texas-school-shooting-gunman-facebook
The new tube map is an absolute disgrace. Everything, literally everything in this country is for sale. The Santander bikes and Emirates cable car were bad enough, but to put corporate branding on the official tube map. Harry Beck is rolling in his grave today. https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/track/tube
It could have a “talk” mode and a “command” mode so that typing “spell check my homework” into the talk mode would suggest that you could type “read homework.txt | spellcheck” into the command mode
Here's a fun way to spend an hour: try re-creating this nomogram using nothing but a compass and a straight edge. I found it really quite satisfying to reverse the addition and multiplication that falls out of the quadratic equations the nomogram can be used to solve. https://www.cambridge.org/core/services/aop-cambridge-core/content/view/8AECE3C0A20A8D993501D2E59349168C/S1757748900001523a.pdf/a-simple-nomogram-for-the-solution-of-quadratic-equations.pdf
There are dozens of fish or fish-like emoji (e.g., 🐟 🐠🎣🐡🦈🐬🐳🐋🐟.𓆝𓆟)
In fact, there are so many that, if I sent you a random one, a third party wouldn't have a good chance of guessing which one I'd sent.
This means we could adopt a new form of 2FA based on sending fish emoji

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!
So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.
This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

I love /r/antiwork but I really don't like the name.
It should be /r/antijob.
Human nature is to do work.
But human nature is not to have a job.
Building software is work. Gardening is work. Making music is work.
Work is good. Work is healthy.
Jobs, though. That's where our mental, emotional, and often even physical selves break down.
