you can’t fuck up the past but you can still change the future

Lemmy could be compared to the comment section on news sites or YouTube, with the added advantage of allowing for more interaction between users in threads that are more structured

Quillnote, though syncing functionality is still experimental

I sure miss the good times, but not to forget there were plenty of bad times, too

Something like a stone on the ground can perhaps be ignorant, everything else not so much

Showing respect for someone you respected during their lifetime should be self-evident

Let’s just say it’s easier to develop feelings for someone you feel close to than for someone you don’t like

Minimum should be the absolute minimum, going lower defeats the purpose of having a minimum in the first place

Next time I see a soccer ball (or anything that looks kickable), I’ll make sure to “test” it first

It’s no use to starve when you get cravings later that lead to binge eating. Balance is the key to a good diet

Everyone who’s lucky enough to live in a place with potable tap water should drink that whenever possible! Also, you can just bring a bottle & refill it anywhere

Better to abort a baby for traits you don’t like than to treat it badly because of those traits later.

Comparing sex work to any other form of work is a common error in thinking and indicates a lack of understanding for “the victim’s” point of view.

Sex work is just not the same, so it has to be treated special since it concerns a human’s (mainly woman’s) physical integrity & their most intimate parts. I can’t imagine that one can separate the body from the mind so clearly here, making the workers more vulnerable than in any other field of work. It’s all they have & they’re selling it. Please be more sensitive in that regard and show some respect for people’s private spheres.

How to share confidential information?
I'm using Signal, but after I found out that it's not as privacy-friendly as it claims, I'm uneasy about sharing my address there. I trust the person who asked for my address, but not the service. What's a safe way to share? I was thinking of something like a self-destructing pastebin, but surely you have better ideas.

[Biologists] "have proposed a new category called "neonatives," which would consist of species that have moved at least 100 kilometers (or a few hundred meters in altitude) beyond their historic ranges (as established in 1950), in response to environmental changes"
