  1. I don’t think you know what spelling means because I didn’t misspell any words
  2. he has came from Russia. “has came” is not a proper verb form
  3. There’s nothing grammatically incorrect about what I wrote

If you’re going to nitpick me at least be correct yourself



I guess we’ll see when more details come out. Given the growing evidence that it was an Ukrainian S-300, why would it be so far off course, and not just that, in the complete opposite direction to the approaching missiles from the east it would be trying to intercept?
And it just so happens to hit a tractor in the middle of empty farmland. It’s almost like Ukraine would have something to gain if article 5 were triggered.


Is there anyone who was rooting for her? I see Tucker Carlson and Piers Morgan making fun of her tonight. She seems to be universally disliked.


Wtf is trans strasserism?
I have seen the flag a couple times this week, what is it? How can it possibly be a thing? Is it from jreg?

Boring game. Anything I can do in this game I can do in real life already.


No, the most appropriate would be Zelensky following the Minsk accords and calling off his army and apologising his brothers for attacking and murdering them. Then Russia would have no reason to intervene.


I don’t know much about this situation, but it seems appropriate that the plant should temporarily be shut down, all radioactive materials removed. This would probably leave a lot of people without power though because this plant is one of the biggest in Europe and provides a lot of electricity.


Well where I live there is virtually 0 public transport, why I say “by American standards, which isn’t saying much”


This is the Oakland bay bridge. The lanes only expand to this wide to accommodate more toll booths. Because cars move slower on lanes when they are paying tolls, the tolls will become a bottleneck unless there are more toll lanes than highway lanes. You can see up ahead where the lanes merge back together again.

This is the only direct road connection between Oakland and San Francisco, so of course there will be heavy traffic no matter how much public transport you have. And the bay area has decent public transport by american standards, which isn’t saying much, but many people live close to commuter rail.

I don’t see the problem with this, there are much worse examples of modern car infrastructure imo.


It’s world news, why does there need to be a point?


No. We only know what science is because of philosophy. If that basis for science became science, then the truth of science would have to presuppose itself, a set of ideas that would be true in and of themselves, which is clearly fallacious.

Also, the sciences deal with descriptive reality. They say nothing about how the world should be or how we should act.


That is a psychology wiki article about authoritarian personality, not about authoritarianism.

What most people mean by authoritarianism is a form of government. You are an anarchist right? You would agree the state is just the way the ruling class asserts its position, and that all states have this monopoly of the legitimate use of violence. If that’s what a state is, how can one state have more of a monopoly than another? A monopoly is a monopoly. However you see it, the class in power rules absolutely. No state is more authoritarian or libertarian than any other.



It’s a planned feature. Just not one the devs are working on right now.
https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/issues/1985



I think the instances should be fully connected as possible, but this isn’t a design flaw that admins can block instances. It is their resources going into hosting, so they should be able to decide how they want to run their own instances. Having the software prevent them from doing this would be developer overreach.


Sadly some people do this without getting good pay and a cool badge.


I support this feature. But Wikipedia is not an authority on what fascism is. The dictionary attempts to describe the usage of a word in this case as it relates to an objective phenomenon. Before we can attempt this description, an understanding of the objective phenomenon must be had. We can rely on definitions for understood phenomena like water, jogging, or birds. But what exactly fascism is is a hotly debated topic, not a well understood phenomenon that we hold absolute knowledge and certainty of. Even your dictionary source admits it is a characterization of fascism, not exactly a definition.

A conservative will reason discursively that Hitler was a leftist, because the Left can be defined as more government, so Fascism is far left. In the same way, that buzzfeed employee could argue their own view of what misogyny is. To them, when a man spreads their legs in public, this is the sexist act of manspreading.

What these people (and you) are doing is taking a word that has a strongly negative connotation, arguing for an expanded categorization of this word in an attempt to rub off that connotation on something else. But all this succeeds in doing is devaluing said word.

Fascism has a negative connotation because its consequence was the death of 60-100 million people. That has nothing to do with Bernie supporters wanting to give people free healthcare. The “more government” connection (what even does ‘more government’ mean?) has to be proven more than circumstantial. Likewise, sexism has a negative connotation because of rape, women in the past not having basic rights like the right to vote, etc. But a man letting his balls get some air has nothing to do with that, even if people find it a little rude.

They have algebraically replaced a world phenomenon with a term, much like a mathematician replaces a quantity with the letter ‘X’ on paper. Then they have discursively reasoned using the term, not the phenomenon. You can find the length of a square’s side from the root of the area. We have a square that is 4 cm2. So what is √4? Math tells us that it is ±2. So a square in real life can have a negative length? This is the lunacy that you will accept with analytical reasoning if you do not understand its premises.

So instead of lazily giving us a definition full of nebulous terms, why not prove to me that any similarities between modern Russia and the Fascist countries are more than circumstantial? What is the unity behind these particular examples? All states are militaristic. All states suppress real opposition. Authoritarianism is no realer than the boogeyman. Russia does not have a “strong regimentation of society” so you’re just flat out wrong there.



I did that when I was staying over at a friends house in middle school once, and instead of the parents getting mad at me, they got mad at my friend. “why can’t you be more like them?”


The problem with itch.io charity bundles
I bought the Palestine charity bundle last year, and I only now realize that it includes Mini Metro and Luck be a Landlord. I have been wanting to play these games for a while, and I had them in my library the whole time not knowing it. I guess that's not a problem and more of a pleasant surprise. But it can be hard getting the most out of the bundles if you don't know what's worth playing. That's why I share the link to this page because that's how I found out I owned these two games, and hope someone else finds it useful.

What is a Lemmy Buck Worth?
If it ever got to the point where someone exchanged real money for one, no matter how little, you could finally measure the exchange rate to real currency. There could be a major spike in the price in the future. I say INVEST. BUY BUY BUY

I don't like that they are called toots in Mastodon
This might just be a me problem, but I don't like that they use the word toot in Mastodon. When they chose that word, they probably were going for the sound an elephant makes with its trunk, because a mastodon is similar to an elephant. But I have always been aware that toot is another word for flatulence. So personally it makes me cringe. You can imagine what it's like for me if you replace "toot" with "fart" on mastodon. Now everyone is talking about liking the best farts, sharing someone's fart, etc. I'm not suggesting they change it on my account, I just wanted to share and see if anyone else had the same problem. Edit: Apparently they already did change the name https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=26882318 Edit 2: Oh wow, apparently it was hbomberguys idea 6 years ago. https://mastodon.social/@Hbomberguy/146524

c/pics has no active mods
Lately, c/pics has been spammed with posts that I see as off topic. The community has no set rules, and the only mod is inactive for 2 years. In order to preserve the quality of this community, there needs to be new mods. I don't particularly want to do it, but if no one else steps up I will take responsibility for it.

The mod creator says they've dedicated 2,000 hours over the last two years to make Runelite HD but was only recently messaged by Jagex. Runescape developer Jagex has put an end to Runelite HD, a fan-made HD mod of the popular open-source client for Old School Runescape, just as the project was about to launch last Monday. The 11th-hour move has some Runescape fans decrying Jagex's decision and saying they'll move to other MMOs. ...

Just installed Lemmur
I got a new android phone today, so I can finally check this out. UI is great. Everything looks really impressive so far. I'm also making this post just to see how posting looked. I was going to complain about the lack of a preview button, but I see the toggle icon for it now. It's clever!
