Today's was the first one where I had to resign and try random letter goop once the search space was narrow enough. Learned a new word tho, so that's nice.

intergenerational ranting, death 

boomers be like: "kids these days are too sensitive with their mental health and stuff. we just powered through our problems"
only to then turn around and talk about how half their school buddies drank themselves to death in their late 20s

made the mistake of drinking tea from homegrown sage yesterday evening and was awake for hours after that o.O

store-bought dried sage never managed to have this effect

Lol @ the absolute look of disbelief some people give you, when you dont need to fly 5000 kilometers to have a vacation.

Like fucking hell, you dont even know what places are within a 100 km radius from your home. Try exploring those first

seems like its also the result of a lot of supermarket workers being quarantained... not making it better rly

The no-kink-at-pride debate, like the Lesbian Sex Wars, is a moral panic apparently initiated by progressive, marginalized queers. Like the LSW, its rhetoric is readily adaptable by the right, both in traditional conservative publications and by more chaotic agents like operation pridefall. What worries me is what happens if they start getting traction on Pride boards and proposing legislation.

I wrote an article about the need for low-carbon and #sustainable #computing and the path towards zero-carbon computing.

In short, we need to dramatically limit the growth in emissions from computing, or by 2040 emissions from computing alone will be close to half the emissions level acceptable to keep global warming below 2°C.

And it is possible to do this.

Computer Science towards sustainable permacomputing
"Unrealistic" "People wont want that" "Too many assumptions about the future"

Computer Science which assumes everyone lives in VR in the future
"Visionary" "Futuristic"
