broke: asking for a user's gender
double broke: asking for a user's title and having mr. and mrs. be the only options, with mr. as the default

Why the hell is there now a permanent toot and edit profile sidebar on the site?

fun fact: there are much more efficient and long-lasting LED lightbulbs that Philips sells only in Dubai (because they got a huge government contract), and they're intentionally not selling anywhere else cuz they last too long

capitalism at work babeyy

trans terms, shitpost 

I saw discussion imvolving the terms AMAB / AFAB, and had a brain fart because I'm not usually involved in conversations using them. At first, since I saw that it was a post about enbies, maybe there were diehard enbies who are all like All Males Are Bastards or All Females Are Bastards. Upon remembering the actual meaning of those acronyms, I told my BF this stupid thought, who came up with the opposite wrong meaning acronym, which could have multiple meanings. Assigned Cop At Birth, which could either mean that you were born into the role of being a cop, or alternately, could mean you were assigned your own cop from the moment you were born.

The whole concept of the "chiminea" is such bullshit, Google only manages to pull up mostly bullshit results for them, like sites trying to sell you one. It isn't until the 8th result that you actually get a link trying to tell you what the hell this thing is, and the 9th is the Wikipedia article, finally. You know, in case you're like me and thought the first time you saw this word "god, could this person do a worse job of misspelling 'chimney'?" I mean, damn, the thing looks just like goddamn chimney stacked on top of a tiny oven.

Chim chiminea chim chiminea...


I have problems all the time with executive dysfunction, frequently deciding that I don't want to work on software I maintained years ago, or my usual of waking to my 11:30a alarm and then depression napping for another two hours or so.

And now I'm once again blowing off a chat or two because I decided to have a knee-jerk reaction and throw in my support for a toxic person whose "only crime" would seem to be having mental problems that I can identify with, causing them to get into arguments constantly and have knee-jerk reactions.

And I don't view this as my medication not working, because this level of so-called functionality is pretty much where I've always been, even before I started taking medication and had my break.

I don't know what my problem is, really.

Man, I can't tell what sort of misinformation this Hints from Heloise syndicated column is trying to spew forth... Today, she's telling people they need to dispose of their laundry detergent and bleach products within 6 months of purchase, or by the indicated "freshness date". Say what? Do harsh household chemicals really lose their potency that quickly?

The presidents continually talk about people not wanting to be on welfare programs, and they are right. Often they are talking about programs such as disability.
I was on disability for years. You cannot have over 2k. You cannot leave the county for over a month. You are encouraged to work but if you make over 1k you're out. The medical care was amazing, but the strings attached made it feel like a prison. So, sure, but the answer isn't "get rid of it." I wouldn't be alive without disability.

o, what a pitiful shame that we are stuck with Javascript as the lingua franca of the web, all of its many dangerous warts and pitfalls an indelible stain on the platform

now to take a big sip of coffee as I ponder the timeless beauty of the Unix way, with its elegant lingua franca, shell scripts

Heroforge, important read (yes, even if you've seen that other post)

Please boost this if you boosted the original post.

Heya folks! I'm moving over from @catoxis, so please give this a boost so I can get my lists back in order and let people enjoy this slice of Cheshire madness~


Heckin gross. Windows 10, any version newer than 19H1 August 30th update, will not boot on my Ryzen machine, unless I disable the "Above 4G decoding" option. Funny enough, my MSI motherboard calls this option "Crypto mining" option too, and disables it by default anyway.

Conversely, my AMD Hackintosh installation won't boot past the FileVault password prompt if I have that option disabled. So I guess it's BIOS option swapping nightmare mode if I want to switch back and forth.

@rey did something happen to federated media? I'm seeing 404 errors and missing images for remote posters

Meh, disregard that, I'm dumb. I needed to run the boot loader from the EFI system, which allowed it to reboot to the recovery prompt, which in turn let me run Startup Recovery, which actually worked for the first time since I've ever tried using it.
