this is where the air inside them turns into plasma and starts to fuse.

running a star requires postgresql version at least ≥18.0, that's the reason that we can't build viable fusion reactors yet

did you know that you need 16-trees to run stars? all filled out to least depth 32. that's the other reason

stars are always written in mips assembly, even when they run on x86 platforms. this is why physicists say the universe has a sense of humor

Show thread

stars have at least four flavors, all of them are blue raspberry

Show thread

stars can power at least one household for an hour per year of burning

stars require postgres version 18 but they use sqlite3 for their databases.

why is this thread acting like stars are bits of software? well, you see, gas is softer than solid, and plasma softer still, so stars are software.

the next version of stars emits no light (leaks no memory), so it's going to be way better

@violet …inb4 the first fusion reactor opens at roughly the same time as postgres 18 releases, and you look like a fucking badass

@violet requires postgresql version at least greater than or equal to eighteen point zero
