Cake day: Dec 29, 2019


i’ve seen a lot of such footage where conductors spend like 30 seconds trying to forcefully pack in a entire train carriage in order for the doors to close and i’ve always found it to be so weird

like, if your metro is so busy, i’m assuming you have trains running every 60-90 seconds, which translates roughly to the minimum safe distance between trains, therefore they literally just spent like half the time they’d have to wait for another train to come simply trying to shove in one passenger, delaying not only everyone on that train, but also everyone is subsequent trains

where is the logic?

idk, i’ve never heard ppl say these things about brutalism 🤔

maybe a somewhat similar sentiment in protest of high-rise and boring social housing, which happened to have a somewhat brutalist style, but never brutalism itself

if anything, some of the most interesting brutalist works are located in western countries such as england and japan

i don’t understand

is the implication that brutalism does take inspiration from random objects and people dislike it because of that?

til some people walk around with shoes ON in their houses, wtf? 🤔🤦‍♀️

these types of seemingly absurd combinations are not intended to be things you wear on a regular day, to school etc, they try to encapsulate and present design concept and ideas, sometimes rather vague ones

all of that, combined with the fact that you need to accentuate certain aspects you really care about, obv in the end it doesn’t come out as something super practical

atri coming (rust tor impl with multithreading), stay strong

thank you reddit for singlehandedly curing my reddit addiction with their awful redesigns lmao 🙏🙏


isn’t this a false dichotomy?

not only do rich western nations need to reduce emissions, but developing nations need to correct their course as to not go through the immensely inefficient industrialization route that current rich western nations took

everyone needs to change, not just western rich countries

what’s the point of listing historic emissions from the 1800s?

the focus should be on reducing emissions for everyone right now, regardless of their past emissions, bc that shit is already in the atmosphere, there’s nothing that can be done about it, and using past emissions as some sort of gotcha to justify not doing anything about climate change is one of the worst things you can do

I think the difference with a game is you don’t seek violent games out for the sake of fulfilling murderous urges. In

when was the last time you played an online videogame? 😅

running around in a busy gta 5 lobby or playing a counter strike match on eastern european servers often makes me think that the most vile, hateful, murderous, abusive psychopaths all came together to play with me, if i didn’t know that these are actually normal people irl

i think many people actively seek to play games to realise their violent tendencies, griefing everything that moves and does’t move in minecraft, just driving around on a gta 5 map and blowing everyone up for no reason

and just like these users posting their abusive conversations with chatbots, in videogames people do post clips of, say, creating a massive car pile up on a highway and then exploding all of them, and it’s not considered bad in any way

Enabling reinforces the behavior in people, it’s like giving someone fake casino games. If they have what it takes to become addicted, they will soon turn to real casinos with real money because the fake thing is just not the same. By all accounts enabling is the exact opposite of what you should do to treat a disorder, which is to curb it.

once again, couldn’t this same logic be applied to videogames? i still fail to see the difference between this and videogames: of course an ai chat bot is very different from a relationship with a real person, with the latter establishing boundaries and saying no to things, but so are the aspects of owning a gun and driving a car different compared to a videogame, where you can behave however irresponsibly you want, which in no way translates into how you’d want to handle a gun and a car in real life

wouldn’t this logic be applicable to videogames also? when i’m playing a game, if at any random point i’d be interrupted and asked whether the people in the game are real, i’d of course say no, but whenever i’m playing the game, i don’t ever think about that: if it’s a good game, i feel sad for the losses of the characters, feel on edge in tense situations, and happy for their gains, even knowing that these characters aren’t real

but even if it’s enabling, why is this a bad thing? for example, bdsm-esque fantasies are fairly common, and as long as people play them out in a consenting, safe manner, there’s nothing harmlful about it, and people aren’t being dragged into mental asylums for it

i’m not exactly sure what the nature of verbal abuse the article is discussing, but i think it’s a fair comparison

i’m not sure, i’m not a psychologist 🤷

there may be some underlying issues causing this that you’d want to seek help for, or there may be not and this is just another of the myriad of weird fantasies people tend to have and you can’t “correct” much about it idk 🤷‍♀️

exactly my thoughts

if anything, a person releasing their harmful-to-a-real-person tendencies on an algorithm is a sign that this person realises the harmful consequences of these tendencies and therefore doesn’t abuse a real person

not much different from videogames, but because of the novelty of this particular case it’s perceived as bad 🤷‍♀️

i’m not really sure what is this supposed to mean

yes, a corporations produce b percent of all emissions, so what? if there was only one corporations it would produce 100 % of all emissions, doesn’t change the situation whatsoever

the strategy to scaling down emissions doesn’t change depending on the distribution of emissions

lol maybe

but more likely because of “upskill yourself” hehe

/c/privacy is looking for moderators
greetings everyone, there's already >3.5k members here, not all of them are active obviously, but there are still a lot of posts on this sub, and even more comments, i can't really meticulously go through each and every one of them if you are somewhat active in this community, and have been on lemmy (or one of the other instances) for a few months, and would like to dedicate some time to moderating this community, please pm me :)

from some shitposting sub on reddit, can't remember unfortunately

Looking for maintainers for /c/matrix, /c/firefox, /c/linuxmasterrace and /c/archlinux.
Hi everyone, upon signing up for Lemmy I thought that I had some interesting content for which at the moment there was no appropriate community (so I created one). Later, /u/dessalines brought this issue up in [this](https://dev.lemmy.ml/post/30590) post, I realized that I hadn't posted in quite some time in these communities. I suppose that at the size at which Lemmy is right now, it's is in a way a mods job to populate the respective communities with some content, as so far honestly speaking there isn't too much to moderate. So if you're interesting in the topic of those respective communities and would be willing to maintain them, please message me.

It's interesting how matrix mentions that they're going to pour a lot of resources into p2p in 2020 :)
