This community exists as a sort of sister community/copycat community to the r/fuckcars subreddit.

I think both communities exist for the following reasons:

  • to raise awareness around the dangers, inefficiencies and injustice that can come from car dependence.
  • to discuss and promote alternative transport methods

I’m very uncertain about what content is allowed here and I think if the sidebar could specify a bit more that’d be nice.

yeah the sidebar could be a bit more clear. I will update it later today.


  • Find people on your course that can help you and that you can help. Teaching something you know to classmates helps you learn. There is a saying “one teach, two learn” and it is true.
  • Try to review the content of a lecture before attending the lecture. Even if it is a fast 5 minute skim of the material it will help you
  • Try to get an overview of the course at the start, again a quick skim might take an hour or so, but the content will be more familiar when you get around to it.
  • For maths and science Khan academy is really useful.
  • There is a short course on Coursera called ‘Learning how to learn’ that includes some of the above points, it is worth checking out.

@meloo@lemmy.perthchat.org sorry for the slow reply, yes that sounds great! I will link the chat room in the community description






r/sysadmin - Microsoft introducing ways to detect people "leaving" the company, "sabotage", "improper gifts", and more! (unverified)
I am not sure if the content of the post is true but the product it talks about does exist: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/communication-compliance?view=o365-worldwide

Well done to everyone involved!

How can we follow peertube channels? I can’t seem to see any listed in communities on lemmy.ml





I think Uniswap is a layer 2 on to of Eth, so as long as ETH continues to sue proof of work, it is very unsustainable.


You really need to use common sense and do your own research to be sure if they are a scam or not. Ask questions like:

  • does it solve a problem other than making the holders money?
  • is it distributed fairly?
  • who controls distribution/txn confirmation?

If no problem is solved, or if a small number of entities are in control, then it is a scam.

From what I know Nano is not a scam (~95% of coins were distributed for free through CAPTCHAS and there is no inflation (or fees)).






Reddit is really good for hobby/niche content. Reddit communities have become the largest online communities for quiet a few different interests where previously the largest communities would be independent forums.

It would be great if some forums decided to use Lemmy. I guess there are barriers to this, e.g. user interface changes might not be wanted and it might be difficult to export/import the forum history.


Reasons for this could be:

  1. low average number of passenegers
  2. buses have old inefficient engines because of underfunding/underinvestment



This one is really gave me a proper laugh





I am getting tired of this meme. It is basically complaint about people talking about world events unless they are “experts”.

We should look to experts for our sources of information but it is a bit shirt to mock normal people for talking about the world around them imo


40 percent of Russians do not support the official recognition of the Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” by the Russian authorities, while 45 percent of Russians do. While some signs of “rallying around the flag” are inevitable, it is remarkable that despite complete control over major media sources and a dramatic outpouring of propagandistic demagoguery on TV, the Kremlin is unable to foment enthusiasm for war.

Perhaps they have grown wiser to war propaganda after the retaliatory sanctions for the annexation of Crimea?


Any moment now we will get people jumping in the comments section saying this: buT It’s jUsTiafied BecUAse NatO

If you are defending invasions like this you are just a propagandist



Ukraine will have strong western support so it won’t be as easy as Chechnya. Although Putin might decide to annex anyway.


A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm —“in satire, irony is militant”, according to literary critic Northrop Frye—[2] but parody, burlesque, exaggeration,[3] juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing.

I think seahorse was being ironic/sarcastic



No sorry. But Ethereum will transition to proof of stake in June/July, we might get graphics cards then.
