    I simply stated that CICO isn’t the mechanism that keto uses.

    It literally is though.

    When you are in ketosis your CO increases, so even if your CI stays the same you will now be operating at a deficit

    I was consuming about 150% of my normal pre-diet Calorie intake and losing 500g per day for a month. CICO is flatout not the mechanic used.

    You are stating that without knowing your calories out, and asserting that the laws of thermodynamics aren’t real

    Keto works due to two things: 1) proteins and fats are more filling than carbs, and 2) your basal metabolic rate increases when you are in ketosis



  • I’m talking about JavaScript products

    If i build a shitty house and it collapses, I own it, I don’t write a manifesto about how it’s all lumber’s fault.

    FOSS JS depends on how it’s distributed

    As does FOSS C - do you install linux from the source tree and build everything yourself? no, you download an .iso, so you are bound to the whims of the OS maintainer, who have their own interests. When you install filezilla you probably download the binary instead of building it from source - oh no, now you are subjected to the filezilla foundation’s nefarious interests (purchasing a commercial support license so they can afford to develop GPL software)

    If the FOSS JS is in a public repo and statically downloadable

    Literally every JS package I’ve ever used does this. They have github actions set up to commit the compiled binaries to the dist folder, which is then published to NPM - https://github.com/twbs/bootstrap/tree/main/dist

    Frankly this entire post is just a critique of how commercial entities redistribute MIT licensed code, rather than anything specific to JS. Whatever point that could be made here is entirely obfuscated by flowery language


  • the problem with JavaScript and the misery it brings to people.

    What. Developers shit on it because 10 years ago it was a cluster fuck, but modern JS is absolutely passable. Most users barely know what JS is, and they attribute buggy sites to the company, not the underlying language (rightly so)

    Non-free software is problematic because the user cannot see the code. The code only has to pretend to serve the user while in reality it serves the real master

    JS runs client side and you can see what scripts are downloaded and running

    Regardless of whether the JS is free software or not, there is an inherent conflict of interest whereby the JS is produced by a non-user party to the digital transactions. This means the software is not working for the user. It’s only pretending to.

    So open source projects written in C benefit the user, but open source projects written in JS do not?






  • If it’s in a sealed plastic bag it doesn’t go stale until long after it would have molded on the counter. I refrigerate mine because I buy Costco sized sliced bread and it takes me 2 months to go through it. If you toast your bread, the staleness is unnoticeable

    A lot of these things only need to be refrigerated to preserve flavor, not to stop spoilage. If you go through a bottle of ketchup in 3 months there is little benefit to refrigerating it, if it takes 3 years for you to finish it, it should probably stay in the fridge.

    Some peanut butter brands require refrigeration to prevent mould. Others recommend it because it stops the oils from separating. Brands like Kraft don’t require any refrigeration at all

    Refrigerating oil will stop it from going rancid, but I’ve only ever needed to do this with used deep frier oil

    Honey is just a hell no in the fridge

    Compared to a $20k hatchback, $60-80,000 SUVs are probably a lot more likely to:

    1. Get regular maintenance at the dealership (and get upsold on long term maintenance things without clear immediate benefits), vs the twice a year Jiffy lube treatment
    2. Get body work done if they are in a fender bender, vs just getting written off by insurance
    3. Be driven by older, more experienced and safer drivers
    4. Be stored in a garage, so the bottom of the car doesn’t rust out from road salt before they hit 200k miles



  • Unlike the others, where the ethnic group preceded the country, to quote wikipedia, the name Pakistan “is composed of letters taken from the names of all our homelands, Indian and Asian, Panjab, Afghania, Kashmir, Sindh, and Baluchistan.”

    There is a 50+ year history of people using it as an umbrella term to (offensively) refer to all the ethnic groups above, regardless of their actual ethnic roots, or even whether they were actually from Pakistan. It’s othering, similar to the word “oriental”, with an extra splash of explicit hatred (rather than just pure ignorance)

    My company has two full time staff members running point on customer service. Directing people to the 5 bullet point FAQ page is about 85% of their job.

    I dabbled with setting up an AI classifier to do this for them, and while it would remove 99% of those FAQ emails, the remaining 1% of the time it was so catastrophically wrong it made us press pause on the whole thing.
