#Transgender

I think we often forget about trans guys in our general discussions and we should do better as a group to be more inclusive.

You are valid.

The Foshay tower in downtown Minneapolis required guy wires when it was originally built.

I would love to know more information about why they used those and what the purpose was.

Fun fact

In elementary (primary) school during second grade (year 2) I checked out the book “How to run a railroad” the entire school year. I kept renewing it. The following year in third grade (year 3) I was banned from the library. My mother quickly resolved the issue and was pissed at the school for trying to ban a student for wanting to read.

Looking back I was clearly in the wrong, but I thank her anyway.

Maybe everyone is waiting until the last possible moment to bid on owning the entire contents of their local Red Lobster, to be removed off premises by EOD tomorrow, LOL. Still only $3516.00 for the San Diego location's contents. https://bid.restaurantequipment.bid/Public/Auction/AuctionItemDetail?AuctionId=%2fKoYA1j74%2fd45J4SRlQW0g%3d%3d&pageNumber=pf6Q%2bhJtdeleDd9FfYpy9w%3d%3d&pageSize=O5OaPaZE1XrTjGtTQItkaw%3d%3d&showFilter=iBcS%2b4ptjknZQtCojbueqQ%3d%3d&sortColumn=C9SY4KX74WJIILYqur0bmw%3d%3d&AuctionItemId=Z2zRQq1PXgF4PX0W5ApbJw%3d%3d

Article 13, Section 7 of the Minnesota Constitution states

“No license required to peddle.

Any person may sell or peddle the products of the farm or garden occupied and cultivated by him without obtaining a license therefor.“

Because of this wording a group of Minnesotans is arguing the state constitution allows them to sell their home-grown marijuana — they’re legally growing — without a sales license and are asking a judge to weigh in.

I used to work 12 hours plus drive time, 1 hour up and 1 hour back. Never again. It also didn’t help that it was 3 weeks on days then 3 weeks on nights. Completely awful. Hopefully the bands will be good when your on your regular days off.

The bands were hot over night here in the states. Fell asleep listening to RNZI. Both 17 MHz and 13 MHz were rock solid.

My platform is pretty simple,

  1. Stay out of other peoples business.

  2. Universal healthcare

  3. Tax reform, eliminate ALL deductions and everyone pays the same cut. (10 percent?)

  4. Corporations are not citizens and employees including CEO’s who do illegal things get 25 actual years in prison.

  5. Cap interest rates at 2 percent above the savings rate.

  6. Right to privacy and the right to be forgotten.

  7. Contract reform. Terms are NOT changeable AFTER the fact.

"Respiratory inhalers, which represent nearly 90% of the U.S. market for asthma medication, save lives but also contribute to climate change.

Each puff from that type of inhaler releases a hydrofluorocarbon gas that is 1,430 to 3,000 times as powerful as the most commonly known greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide."

I am not worried about this use. I am worried about Taylor Swift and Elon Musk flying around the world doing far more damage, but lets not talk about this.

Swiss public broadcasters RTS and SRF are drastically reducing their communications via the social network X (formerly Twitter).

French-language RTS said that since X was taken over by billionaire Elon Musk in 2022 it no longer corresponded to the company’s journalistic values.

Dear Fellow Hams and Friends,

Dear Fellow Hams and Friends,

It is with a sad heart as I write this letter.

As many of you have heard by now, MFJ is ceasing its on-site production in Starkville, Mississippi on May 17, 2024. This is also the same for our sister companies’ Ameritron, Hygain, Cushcraft, Mirage and Vectronics.

Imagine if ARIN was in charge of the dictionary. This sentence would have cost me at least fourteen bucks to write.

Charging people or companies to use numbers is as dumb as charging people to use words in a dictionary.

I offer ZERO time for an opposing view.

It's kind of absurd that your options on fedi are to opt into literally all CWs and having to manually expand them all or opting into none of them ever. You should be able to have a list of words that collapse CWs automatically but otherwise have them open by default

I know that glitch already solves this via regex but it's client side. This really should be stored in your account so it works across devices and applications automatically

@eniko

I have a list of words it completely hides. Perhaps that might be a better option.

HopelessDemigod, to TikTok
@HopelessDemigod@mstdn.social avatar

Here is my personal take on the TikTok drama.

  1. The app and service is trash.

  2. I personally think it should be banned along with Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Reddit and Instagram because it’s only purpose is to harvest data.

  3. Any law banning TikTok will most likely be struck down as unconstitutional.

  4. A better approach would be creating laws codifying the right to privacy, data retention, data destruction and banning the sale of data from these services. No exceptions.

@HopelessDemigod@mstdn.social avatar

@freemo

It’s opinion piece written from my perspective. What I want and what the law or life will allow don’t always line up.

For example I would love to make a million dollars a year but that’s not going to happen or I want a 140 foot tower in my backyard but the yard isn’t big enough.

@HopelessDemigod@mstdn.social avatar

@freemo

I wouldn’t ban it because of the speech component I would ban it because it harvesting data from children who are unable to consent to any other contract in our society and have no understanding of the negative consequences of letting this data be harvested.

The two issues are legally distinct.

@freemo

With regard to censorship, had congress classified them (The internet industry collectively) as common carriers in 1996 the censorship issue wouldn’t be a concern.
