What if there's a bot that posts close to high value copyrighted materials? But it's still legal due to the diffusion magic. Like I dunno Donald Duck exploring his infatuation with Darth Vader. They'll toss their lawyers on it and perhaps improve things for everybody?

Did I miss something cuz solarpunk is high tech to me

@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

It sounds like it. To me it's really a wholesome combination of tech and nature. Like imagine growing up with all the benefits of tech but in a peaceful natural environment. That could be a farm but I don't see that it has to be.

@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Oh I know what that's like, it sucks. And I used to dislike nature too, so I get that.

Sure good question how that would play out. We can also wonder that about the culture we live in right now.

What kind of society would you like? I wonder what you think of art deco such as the Chrysler building.

What about the hoover building?

Just going for something techy here that's without nature

xilliah ,
@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Nowhere I think. Is that good, bad or weird?

I suppose I was trying to figure out what style of society suits you better. I just think it was interesting that you were motivated to post.

Hmm do you know the venus project? That's pretty cool. Or arcosanti. Auroville.

Anyway no worries if you wanna drop it.

I'd say I am a prime target for random violence but I wouldn't want weapons to be legalized here.

@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Mostly just people trying to let out their frustrations. I can handle them. It's a feature, not a bug that there's no weapons involved.

31 29 31 30 31 30 31 31 30 31 30 31

It alternates between 31 and 30. The exception being that February got shortchanged and had to give a day to August, and it keeps alternating after that.

Due to leap year magic February has to give up yet another day, so it's either 28 or 29.

When I worked in retail I had to ask people to wear a mask. Not a problem at all. But there was this one lady who came behind the counter an coughed on me? Technically it was assault because I even got spit on me.

Like at what point does someone cross into being just plain evil.

xilliah ,
@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

I loved it actually. Out of hundreds of people a day only one would require real handling. I don't think they realized that they were that one special asshole.

I think she had a mental issue. Like her eyes weren't right.

@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Over here you'll want to simply remove yourself and contact the authorities. If that's not possible you'll want to use proportionate force.

In this case I'd say that means I'd be allowed to carefully push her from behind the counter and then call the police.

xilliah ,
@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Over here that'd be illegal. But it would certainly give her a good reason to put on a mask!

There was another poll that showed that there were virtually no transmen here. Would be interesting if someone researched that.

I think the trans community tends towards privacy oriented tools due to the political climate.

Let me tell you one of the reasons that I'm here. When I was eight I got a pc on my birthday. My sister was on that thing for two weeks using dos and acing grand prix motor. She was given a baby doll which could cry and eat and pee. That goes to show how deeply ingrained these norms are in our culture. How would my sister ever have a chance without a pc? She received the message and didn't touch it again.

Another thing I can bring to the table is that I had game history and we learned that marketing of games used to be to boys and girls. And in the 80s or so it was figured out that marketing only to one gender group is more successful. That's when games started focusing solely on boys.

Further, all the game authors were men, which further cements it.

For example I've been playing Oblivion lately and it's almost impossible to find some proper pants. Any pants that I pick up magically transform into skirts and dresses: 1000011965

Make of that what you will.

Sorry about that. Did you see the latest kurzgesagt video about us possibly living in a black hole?

Afaik there's also this idea of strong atheist and weak atheist, and strong and weak theists. The weak ones are more on the agnostic side.

Is that neo paganism? I've witnessed a pagan marriage once and I also experienced Heilung live.

Have you ever read about how Charles the great forcefully converted many pagans to Christianity?

I've been wanting to visit a local grove.

Reminds me of Life of Pi, where the protagist was told he could choose anything as a kid.

Also if you haven't yet, be sure to check out quantum mechanics. Personally I enjoy the Everett interpretation.

Open document with your plan. Make it actionable using planning techniques.

Keep a diary, it is free style and meta.

xilliah ,
@xilliah@beehaw.org avatar

Sorry about that. Well it's simpler than it seems. Find a note taking app you like or get a nice notebook. There's some fancy ones if you wanna make it feel more valuable.

Then imagine being able to snap your fingers and change anything in order to be able to relax right now. Write down a list of these issues. For example:

  • I run out of money
  • I have to move for my work
  • ...

Now write down a list of todos. If an issue is too big to be solved, you've got to break it down until it does allow you to do stuff easily.

Keep updating this from time to time.

You can also do free writing, and just write anything in any style.

I was jogging in the city and as I come out of this underpass a totally nude man crosses the grass and the path in front of me all while looking at me.

He wasn't scary or anything. It felt like he was just doing his thing.

Looks nice, do you recommend it? Why not use ddg?
