Hey, PSA that these kind of cool and creepy looking ceramic models of human heads with areas marked off with different labels/functions are an artifact of - a long-debunked 18th Century that attempted to rationalize systemic racism, sexism, ableism, and classism.

Here's an easy rule of thumb: If you're comparing skulls and/or head shapes/sizes to prove a point about the differences between categories of humans, that's phrenology, and it is absolute 100% pure bullshit.

I will no longer be clicking on any links to Vice.com.

PSA: Naturalnews.com is a very bad, Fash-adjacent peddler of dangerous pseudoscience and garbage medical advice.

0/0, Do not recommend.

(They sometimes come up as a top result when searching medical/diet things, which is why I bring this up.)

I like messing with Linux/Free Software, electronics, decentralized networks, encryption, making musical instruments, seizing the means of production, and yelling at cops.

I also like helping people when I can, but a lot of the time it feels like I'm the one in need of help.

I gotta say that YouTube + Netflix + Twitch all wrapped inside an Electron app sounds like a whole whitlows of bad,

But...if it means I don't gotta tweak around with Firefox or Chromium to get thisshit to work, I think it might be OK.

Honestly, I feel like I shouldn't have to explain this. But if you're making a command-line tool, make the *package* the same name as the *command*

i.e. if I'm installing translate-shell, I would expect to type the command 'translate-shell', not 'trans' because there's no indication that that's what I should do.

It's not like I can do "man translate-shell" because guess what mfers! THAT COMMAND DOESN'T EXIST!

Godddd stop spreading the propaganda that entry-level retail workers are punished for other people's shoplifting. They aren't! I've worked retail for 4 years at 5 different places (Walgreens, Target - at 2 locations, Sam's, and 2 local places) and have never heard of this happening. Shrinkage is considered part of expenses, entry-level employees aren't expected to stop shoplifting (and are more often explicitly told not to), and this is definitely against company policy at any big chain

I'm sure it does happen under the table or at small businesses, but people talk about it like it's guaranteed every time you nick a drink. It's fucking not, and by saying this every single time someone talks about theft you're doing exactly what the capitalists - including the ones who enact this policy - want. They're holding workers hostage and you're giving in to their demands

Boosts appreciated
