I think you may have to start a new community for this, I’m genuinely not sure where a story like this might go. Excellent, though. Very interested to find out more.

The “Casual conservation” community is probably too casual for this. Maybe creating something like /c/WildPersonalStories ?

Good idea, link the community and post here, too, thanks.

…and you’re treated as culturally insensitive if you point out that it’s partially motivated because of two bullshit ass religions, and the reason they won’t stop is because they’ve each just got to prove their God has the bigger dick, even though they’re technically the same God.

Look man, if your options are literally only “do nothing and accept your fate” or “kill a bunch of innocent people who never did anything to you and actually may have supported you” then maybe you should just give up and accept your fate, because we’re literally seeing how many more innocents are dying because of this. They didn’t put a dent in Israel’s defenses. They gave Israel more excuses to the international community to murder even more innocents. Great plan, Hamas. I’m glad it worked out so swimmingly and actually changed things instead of just continuing the same bullshit cycle. /s

If you can point to me out how this is going to result in anything other than more death and destruction, feel free to clue me in. Because fuck nothing has changed. They didn’t take out the people responsible. They didn’t change the power balance, and now even more Palestinians are paying the price because Israel is a fucked up aggressor.

Acting like a bad plan that resulted in more innocents deaths is some great blow against the establishment is dumb as fuck.

I dunno, I always thought it was meant to mimic organics.

“Cable management” inside the human body is horrendous. So it felt like in the mixing of machine and biology, the machines had to become more biological in the way they worked to function properly in tandem with the Borg biology.

Gonna be real difficult to recover from if you lose the device with your passkeys on it or that device is broken.

Couple that with eSIMs and you are looking at a lot of headaches for the non-tech savvy.

Supposedly you can use a security key but they are pushing biometrics, yikes!

Wait until passkeys and all their issues have been solved by the major players.

Don’t lock yourself out of your digital life chasing something flashy and new.

So you agree that both sides are doing terrible things and there are no good guys in this situation? Just innocents caught in the middle.

Guy behind Beeper fucked Pebble smartwatch users and developers on his way out.

So when Beeper isn’t making enough money and he sells it… Will you trust who he sells it to to keep it secure instead of aiming to use data for ads or some shit?

I won’t.

The sale of Pebble was supposed to include the developers jobs. They found out very late in the game that this wasn’t true. He screwed his devs on the way out. Basically said “fuck your job, good luck.”. Real shitty way to handle it, imo.

Coupled with the fact that it meant all real support for Pebble was gone as well, it really was about Micigovsky making out with a bunch of money and saying “good luck, I dont actually care what happens” to his devs and the people who bought a Pebble.

The way it shook out just doesn’t make me trust him. I think he would do the same thing again, sell to a more scummy third party who will strip Beeper for profit when he isn’t making enough money.

I honestly distrust their business model as a successful long term one, based on his past.

One of my local food banks has a community dinner once a month. The food isn’t anything to write home about, but it’s free.

Exactly what meals on wheels is for, but it needs more funding, to be sure.

Agreed, of course. Was just pointing out that such a thing did exist. Charities are not the most effective way to handle such issues, absolutely.

Charities absolutely rely on things like public relations and advertising campaigns to raise awareness that they exist and/or need funding. It leaves everyone at the mercy of which charity is “most popular” and if yours isn’t very popular, you could see it disappear. It also means a significant portion of the budget is spent on things that don’t actually address the real problem, which is hunger.

Woo we have full employment because everyone is so poor they are working three jobs! /s

This is why people don’t take Democrats seriously. Too much crowing about bullshit like this.

It’s like the ACA, they crowed about how many more Americans were now insured, but they didn’t talk about how universal healthcare would mean you don’t need to cover everyone with “insurance” anymore.

Just like a few years ago when they crowed about how a thanksgiving dinner was like $3 less than the year before.

It’s all public relations propaganda bullshit.

The parties aren’t the same, but they serve the same masters of capital who only want to see US citizens getting scraps. Democrats love to pat themselves on the back for the bare minimum for their citizens. They know they don’t have to try because the other party literally wants to kill their political enemies. Not hard to sell yourself as “better” when it is as simple as “we aren’t actively trying to kill you like they are, but we will let you starve to death or die of medical complications.”

“Because we are capitalists and that’s that.”. -Nancy Pelosi

I’m sure everybody working three jobs gets a day off on election day and enough spare time to go to all local political functions. /s

Dude over 60% of the US lives paycheck to paycheck. Maybe stop blaming them for lack of participation when most states make it outright difficult to participate. Missing work means risking losing their job (At-Will Employment ensures this, just like it makes discrimination legal. “We didn’t fire you cuz you’re gay, it’s because you missed a spot/were three minutes late one time.”), and if they’re working paycheck to paycheck, it also means being unable to pay rent or bills. Risking homelessness just to fucking vote. That’s what you’re asking of over 60% of US citizens.

Young people make the least money and have to work the most to get ahead, but we are always blaming them for not showing up on election day. Sorry they were at fucking work instead of risking homelessness. Because ending up homeless will really help them if the Democrats win, you know how good Dems are at solving homelessness! /s

They kick homeless people out of city centers in Democrat cities, too. Because businesses making money matters more than a humanitarian crisis I guess.

Most people don’t have the time nor the money to be involved and that is on purpose.

Get outta here with this “you just gotta vote harder” BS. Political participation is stacked against regular citizens purposefully.

I didn’t say I wasn’t going to vote. I was simply pointing out that telling people to “vote harder” isn’t working, and for very real and visceral reasons such as risking employment and ability to care for oneself. You can’t act like real reasons that prevent people from being able to participate aren’t part of the conversation.

Democrats are still the better choice, but I really don’t like people who could do more choosing not to because it’s easier to rake in money and sit on their hands while the Republicans act the fool, and then acting like it’s the voting public’s fault. That’s some kind of abuse. “I know we don’t treat you very well, but the other guys will actually really hurt you.” It feels like a threat. “We’ll let them hurt you if you don’t do enough for us.”

We need a real leftist party in the US. Yet the top Democrats think we need a Republican party. They think we need a lunatic far right fringe always pushing us to the brink of authoritarianism. Why the fuck would they think we need that instead of a true leftist party? Because they like how much money they can make off how the game currently works. It is a game to them.

“I will say this—you’ll be shocked, probably—I think the country needs a strong Republican Party [like] we need a strong Democratic Party…but this is not it,” Pelosi said. “It isn’t our judgment about what it should be. It’s their judgment, but it’s a missed opportunity for America.”

Wake me when a third party is viable in the US. Unfortunately, as it stands, with First Past the Post voting, third parties currently do nothing but split the vote. That’s purposeful, too.

There’s unfortunately just so much that has to change for this country to move forward. There isn’t going to be a revolution, I agree with that, but it’s also not going to get better by trying to work within the status quo.
