For rainy days we have a treadmill but it's locked into the vendor's subscription service if you want to watch videos.

Except...tap the bottom left 10 times, wait 7 seconds, tap 10 more times, up pops a number, use that as a seed to generate a number with lrand48, reduce modulo 999999 (not 1000000!) and type that number back in, and now you have an Android tablet with web browser and access to YouTube.

I don’t like posting climate stuff because sometimes the biggest assholes reply to those topics.

The intersection of assholes who hang out in those spaces to condescend on people who are learning about climate, and who also have incidentally eco-fascist racist eugenicist views (the developing world should stop reproducing!), is kind of annoying

‘Doesn’t everyone know this?’ No in fact not everyone does

@skinnylatte It turns out the solution to plastic recycling is to just lie to people and just claim you've found a market for recycled plastic.

@RickiTarr that clip is quite a journey:

  • libraries aren’t safe in “Biden’s America”
  • okay, we are only talking about libraries in San Francisco
  • crime is actually going down in SF
  • no, the statistics are bogus, some right-wing rag said so
  • why else are people moving away from California?

Missing from the segment:

  • any actual data showing that libraries or SF are more dangerous

  • any actual argument as to why Biden is to blame or what policies he could adopt to address the issue

@Meyerweb this is complete garbage.

There is a time and place for computerized grading of student work (eg multiple choice, or when the answer is a mathematical expression, such as (1/3)x^3 + C), but grading writing is not it.

A rightwing Christian lobby group that wants abortion to be banned has forged ties with an adviser to the prime minister and is drawing up ­policy briefings for politicians.

The UK branch of the US-based Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has been appointed a stakeholder in a parliamentary group on religious freedoms in a role that grants it direct access to MPs:

No one gets "canceled". They did a bad thing, and they are paying the consequences of those actions, and usually not enough, if they're rich and/or famous.

@cohomologyisFUN@mastodon.sdf.org avatar

@RickiTarr Yep. People see having their show discontinued, or having their product taken off store shelves, as some sort of mean punishment, rather than as a natural consequence of alienating viewers or customers.

Like, if you sell pillows and align yourself with fascism, fewer people are going to want your pillows. And with diminished demand for your pillows, retailers are going to give that limited shelf space to something else.

I have to admit, I did not expect the nonstory that #TDOV happened to fall on Easter this year to become an all-consuming conservative obsession approaching the level of last year's nonstory that Dylan Mulvaney did an Instagram spot with Budweiser.

What this is about - what all of these stories are ultimately about - is an attempt to terrorize the #transgender community out of public life. #news #journalism

    Russia’s foreign ministry spokesperson, Maria Zakharova, has called into question US assertions that Islamic State was behind the attack.

    “Attention – a question to the White House: Are you sure it’s Isis? Might you think again about that?” Zakharova said in an article for the Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2024/mar/25/russia-ukraine-us-islamic-state-concert-hall-attack-live-latest-news

    The whole case against Apple allowing themselves access to hardware/APIs on iOS for their own products but not to 3rd parties in order to manipulate the market in their favor is extremely clear cut; with complaints about it going back more than 15 years.

    The fact that they make nice products doesn’t change this—it’s actually proving it.
