'A huge rise in people just forgetting to be human': Since restaurants reopened, customers have been 'unbearable'
that sure is an interesting way to frame it as a general consumer problem and not that the only people really eating out are still primarily hard right wingdings who were already chomping at the bit to find any acceptable person to be horrible to, now they're emboldened to do so and face zero consequences.
anyway, did you know that in order to have a free and open discussion on politics it is necessary to create a safe and open environment for as many people to speak? this requires that you actually moderate and restrict certain groups and opinions. by inviting fascists and nazis to the table you are actually restricting open debate by creating an unsafe environment for victims of said ideology.
this is how fascists take over a debate. the more you invite them to the table, the more you push out other perspectives, leaving you as that that one person at the table full of nazis.
> Joe Biden tells a small business owner that his industry is "really going to be in a bind for a little while," and goes on to say that if he wants to hire workers, he'll just have to pay a $15/hr minimum wage:
The Linux Foundation are carrying out a survey on "Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in Open Source", and I know this is something #foss #freesoftware and #opensource people (and opponents thereof!) on the Fedi have opinions on. So please boost and fill in.
Contributing to an evidence base may be a way of highlighting the problems and shaming people with money into doing something about them.
3d printers hot take
3d printers are a tool. They are suited to very specific types of fabrication and prototyping. They are not categorically different from a stick welder or a table saw or a sewing machine.
If you buy one because you like the abstract idea of owning a 3d printer, the most likely outcome is printing knicknacks for a few months, then having it sit in a corner collecting dust. I recommend against that!
Now, if you already often find yourself thinking "hm, in this application I really wish I could print a specific component", then, maybe? But also, first consider commercial print-on-demand services, or asking folks in your community to run the part off for you.
I love my printer. At the same time, it's another tool, not a revolution in the way I relate to manufacturing or products.
