That is very poignant. This comic should be plastered everywhere.

I believe the correct translation would be “womale”.

Crude or not, that’s pretty creative! Remove the text and you have instructions for a bidet.

This is probably not a meme, so apologies for that. I do find it funny, though. Here's what the cookie selection window looks like: ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/50fde2cf-2c58-4bb4-a47c-a234741f3564.png) ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/8c82a67c-d52c-43a8-9d55-d960c1870f0b.png)

No kidding. Just a few days ago I was reading up on Alex Jones’ trial and I came across this headline. The line gets blurrier and blurrier.

No offense to OP, but I had to check whether that baby selling headline was real or not, because it seemed like satire. How wrong I was, it’s actually for real. I’m not posting a link, though, because it goes to a facebook page.

This is probably how Long Long Man makes his sandwiches.

I kind of do this. Not necessarily eat the food from least to most favourite, but if there’s something on the plate I’m not a fan of, I’ll try to eat that first. I feel like if I eat that part last, it’ll be more difficult to eat because I’ll already be full and satisfied from eating all the good stuff. Does that make sense?

Ah, my bad, I’m not good at detecting irony sometimes. Thanks for explaining, though.

I only recognize Zuckerberg and Bezos. Who are the rest?

Not a lawyer, etc etc, but as I understand it, yes, it’s still manslaughter. The place where a motor vehicles strikes a person doesn’t really matter. What matters is whether the accident was due to negligence, which would make it vehicular manslaughter, or whether it was done by murderous intent, which would make it vehicular homicide. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, though.

Thank you for what? Obeying the traffic laws you were supposed to in the first place and for not comitting vehicular manslaughter?

The fact that hydrogen is flammable is not really the issue

No, the issue is that it’s highly reactive to oxygen. You can’t have pure hydrogen and air in the same space without risking a violent explosion. I’d say that’s a pretty big issue.

Aw, I was hoping for another game like We Become What We Behold or Adventures with Anxiety. Nutshell does look super useful, though.

Man, this hurts to read. Japan’s alcohol culture was already bad to begin with and now this. With the overabundance of vending machines and convenience stores, you will never have a hard time of finding booze in Japan. Also, in some companies, it’s even expected for employees to go out for drinks after work. And now the government is flat-out asking people to drink more. This can’t end well.

It’s not chat apps that are making things worse, it’s the various companies and organizations using these apps for support channels instead of easily searchable software like forums.

Thoughts on repositories such as this?
The repository in question: https://github.com/BullyWiiPlaza/Ghosts-WiiU-Mod-Injector All it has is a README.md file and they want 8€ for anyone to use this app. I mean, sure, but why host something like this on github? Or am I missing something?

Does anyone else dislike Bluray discs?
For me, they're more trouble than they're worth. For wanting to support your favorite artists, I'm rewarded with unskippable trailers and FBI warnings, and if you want to play Blurays on PC, well... Just take a look at [this](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Blu-ray#Playback). Keydb files? BD+ decryption? What happened to just putting the stupid disc in the machine and hitting play? With pirated movies and shows, I just double-click on a file and away I go. Why would I ever want to go back to Blurays?

Can anyone tell me what the heck web3 actually is?
I mean specifically, what criteria does a webpage have to fulfill for it to be considered web3 compliant? Because all I see around the web are people waxing poetic about freedom, ownership and whatnot without really saying anything. There's no consensus, there's no whitepaper, just... vague, nondescript ideas.

What's the cheapest hardware that can playback videos at 1080p?
There are so many options out there, it's kind of dizzying. I'm looking for a cheap solution that I could hook up to a TV and ethernet, so it could run a flavor of Linux (or BSD) and play videos at 1080p. Bonus points if it can handle 1080p@60 FPS. Other than that, it would be used for light web browsing. I was looking at Raspberry Pi 4, but is there anything else you would suggest?

[Answered] Trying to remember an IP-KVM-like device
This is going to sound rather vague, but less than a week ago, I was reading a forum post somewhere about a device that lets you control a machine remotely, allowing you to do stuff like remotely access a machine's BIOS. Pretty sure it was Linux-based. I thought it was super neat, so I bookmarked it. Or so I thought, because I can't find the bookmark anywhere and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the device. I do remember it being really small, about the size of a Raspberry Pi. In fact, I remember reading the "recipe" for the device on the manufacturer's website that would allow you to make your own and I distinctly remember one of the components being an RPi. There was also a pre-assembled model available. Does this ring any bells for anyone or am I just talking nonsense?

Just tried the latest elementary OS in VirtualBox and... is it supposed to be this obtuse?
I'm just screwing around with the OS, but I have to say, I'm a bit perplexed. I wanted to install GIMP and LibreOffice, so I clicked on the AppCenter only to find out it couldn't find either of them. Which is bizzarre, because I can install both using apt just fine. As it turns out, the AppCenter only has [51 curated applications](https://appcenter.elementary.io/), completely ignoring the abundance of programs already available in the Ubuntu repositories, making the AppCenter a bit useless. Then there's the desktop. I'm not entirely sure why I'm not allowed to have icons on it. macOS has desktop icons. As does Windows. Hell, almost every OS with a GUI does. Apparently, there's something called Elementary Tweaks which lets you enable them, but why would anyone have to jump through hoops to enable this basic functionality? I guess I just don't understand who this OS is meant for.

How do you deal with anti-vaxxers?
I'll be honest, this is as much a question as it is a vent. Specifically, how do you deal with people you meet everyday like family, coworkers, etc. who just revel in conspiracy theories? I have a coworker who is dead certain 5G *somehow* produces the coronavirus, despite easily verifiable facts in microbiology and physics showing otherwise. He's a nice guy in general with a degree in electronics, but dear lord, when he starts with this tin-foil hat bullshit it ruins my day.

MagnetDL, what the fuck?

Linux kernel "rapidly proceeding down an unstable path" according to Hyperbola Linux
I was looking into Hyperbola Linux, when I came across [this post](https://www.hyperbola.info/news/announcing-hyperbolabsd-roadmap/). In this post it is outlined why Hyperbola Linux is switching to a BSD base. A bold move, but I hope it works out for the team. However, I am curious about the four points they outlined as reasons for switching away from the Linux kernel. Is the Linux kernel really careening down a path of instability and binary blobs, or is this just a case of the Linux kernel's development not fitting with Hyperbola's design goals?
