Does your language not have a ceiling function or any other way to round up to integers? Just reimplement division with dozens of if()then() statements

@skelly he's got the neolib/neocon worldview of not even considering root causes, like maybe don't make plastics that don't recycle or biodegrade, maybe require buildings to be built to standards to begin with. No, allow it to happen and then punish after the fact. The only way to do it.

@Smeallie I've seen international tiers for people outside the country of the creator. Higher price than regular shipping tier but available to people in other countries

Oh boy, time to log onto the blender discord and look up some documentation and training materials

@InternetEh @SeanAloysiusOBrien @pantransautie Charles looks at his friend who is a literal Holocaust survivor and tells him mutants just need to show they aren't a threat and are useful and everything will work out :)

/Do/ crows fly straight? Has anyone checked this? Have we been ascribing straight line paths to crow flight when they really meander and wheel around a lot?

@foggy old guy is making solid points and the young dude is just saying buzzwords

@Taweret but Nazgûl both ride and fly...

Now I'm confusing myself

Orwell: "So I've been working on my new anti-Stalinist book. One of them says 'some people are more equal than others'! Pretty scary stuff, right?"

British Intelligence Agent: "Please give me this month's list of political dissidents"

Orwell: "Yes ma'am. Anyway, I'm thinking of calling it 'Talking Animals on a Farm'"

@Blakely Rahmunism sounds like a Chicago republican came up with the best idea he's ever going to have

@SeanAloysiusOBrien @bryceyoungquist Emet-Selch is a good fantasy fascist because he is fighting to bring back the good old days of a glorious civilization that, in a very real sense, never existed. Extremely on the nose.

Remember that time the RCMP, acting as an arm of the US state department, spied on a group of Canadians whose contention was "perhaps Canada should not be under the thumb of the US in absolutely every facet of culture, foreign policy, and internal policy" because only communist radicals could want such a thing?

Turns out the group was insufferably liberal and achieved very little anyway. How Canadian.

@InternetEh they thought of that, not only are the useless calculations hugely wasteful, they get more and more complex and power-intensive as time goes on. They've seen to it that no matter how much electricity and computing power is thrown at it, it will continue to require more

How are the corporations in hiding paying for loyalty? Without the threat of starvation how does a corporation force people to do anything for it? This terrible book is full of plot holes
