it's kind of amazing how the problem of "I want to send a single sentence of text to my friend and have them see it" used to be straightforward and is now insanely bad

I wouldn't want to use the web at all were it not for the existence of Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin, and Decentraleyes.

just found out that microsoft releases an ide called vs code with telemetry enabled by default and with their proprietary license on their website, and they have the source on github so they can claim to be “open source”, but you actually need a bunch of scripts from an unofficial git repo to actually compile it into a branding-and-telemetry-free foss executable since their github page has no build instructions 😂

Have you ever thought about folk songs in fantasy worlds?

Preindustrial types sing a LOT. Shanties and hollers pace your work but without the coherent storytelling of ballads or protest songs, they get convoluted. F’rex “Black Betty” popularized by Ram Jam might be about a police wagon, a whip, a musket, a prostitute, all the above. Or “Haul Away Joe” probably existed for decades before adding a lyric about the French Revolution.

protip:

UBlock Origin does wonders against cognatively hostile sites

see an attention abusing clickbait? *poof* gone!

you can use the eyedropper tool to block almost anything on the page

only catch is when shitty sites insert clickbait into the article text itself

my youtube videos consist of the videos and info sections, I blocked the sidebar and comments section, all they do for me otherwise is suck away my time

if you think about it, most modern applications are just semantic sugaring on the basic process of applying CSS to SQL queries

@trickster
every economics since Martin Friedman poisoned the well decades ago: companies need to show endless profit growth or it means they're doing badly (thus requiring endlessly increasing spending from a consumer base)

Millennials: spending within their (already meager) means

economists with big brains: it's the fault of those dastardly millennials.
