Shout out to the people at @opensourcegardens for sending me some lovely seeds with open-source license: tomatoes, peppers, wheat and corn. I'm sure it's gonne be a great journey.
Thank you so much, Fediverse, for the opportunity of meeting great people and great projects :blobheart:

About 75 years ago, Herman Göring, testified at the Court in Nürnberg, was asked:

- How did you get the German people to accept all this?

He replied:

- ′′ It was very simple, it has nothing to do with Nazism, it has something to do with Humans. You can do it in a Nazi, socialist, communist regime, in a monarchy and even in a democracy. The only thing that needs to be done to enslave people is to scare them. If you manage to find a way to scare people, you can make them do what you want."

@feditips looks really neat for adding discussion groups (of a sort) to the Fediverse. It really needs to be open source, as otherwise it's just another single point of failure.


> (vaccine risks)

Oh, I forgot. It's not an actual risk of the vaccine, but there's an observation that it's a bad idea to widely deploy a vaccine against a disease which is already widely present in the population. It's an analog to why you don't use (well, shouldn't use) antibiotics with abandon--you stress the disease population.

The population will adapt, and put forward viable variations. Consider this when hearing about all those variants.

On the subject of riots, I was puzzled why the FBI _finally_ prosecuted ONE SINGLE rioter. And the media hassled ONE SINGLE fraudster (from BLM).

Then I realized that they expect the rioting to get much worse, and they plan on using this as their way of showing what a firm stand they take against it all.

I removed the paywall to this article so everyone van read how Austin's City Management and Mayor Adler are fucking retarded.


I hear you, but you could always buy the mp3's, then send a "tip" to the band.

Seems like an ethical workaround to the highly dysfunctional music industry!

My friend and I were drinking, and has he tipped his drink back, I noted "you're killing your brain cells" 

He answered, "Yes, but only the _weak_ ones".

I am reading an old Sci-Fi book, and at one point, the leader of the Army told the Generals she was going to decimate their troops. She proceeded to tell them to take the worst 10% and send them packing.

So, there is someone who knows what decimate means....

Because Zoom school is quite stupid, my son and I have been going over what we will be discussing next year when we start our homeschooling. Can’t wait for it! 😁

@unspinthespin @bufordk

Thanks, it was a while ago, sometimes I wonder what sort of conversations we'd have eventually had as I grew older.

Programming Language with Only One Command and the Operating System Built on It

If you need a good laugh, here's a story by a long-time blogger of what he did when he found all his steak knives had gone missing.

@unspinthespin @bufordk

So true! My Dad was a 1st Lieutenant in the USMC. I can't imagine what he'd think of the Dem-sanctioned destruction of cities. But he passed away several years ago, so he got to miss this.


If Obama didn't touch the credit bureaus after 2008, there's no way Biden's doing it now. I suspect it's a way to apply pressure so they make a few token changes in the name of "fairness" and "openness".
