I assume that's how OP's debate of how many holes a human had ended up being about straws: someone argued that the mouth and the anus are just one hole

Rebel Galaxy is an exploration/open world-ish space game with weird controllers but a pretty fun gameplay. You get to fine-tune different classes of ships with a variety of weapons, shields, engines, etc. while completing missions to earn money and earn reputation with different factions.

It's basically Sid Meier's Pirates, but in space and with a modern look. I found it highly entertaining.

"Antiwoke" magazin on kbin.social posting bullshit like "how to end Wokeness" and "Time to reject the extrem trans lobby harming our society" How to report ? he is the moderator of that magazin. (calckey.social)

@ernest how do I report a Magazin on kbin.social ? There is a usere called "ps" who is posting to his own "antiwoke" Magazin on kbin.social. Please remove this and dont give them a chance to etablish them self on kbin.social. When I report his stuff it will go to him because he is the moderator of the magazin? Seems like a...

If you answer "yes", you just might be repeating the whisper of a demon."

So, wait... people who have a competing world view from yours are listening to demons? Now who's naive? xD

I believe the scientific name for this whole thing is "clusterfuck" xD

What are 2000 employees doing at Reddit?

When they said Reddit has 2000 employees I was shocked. what could they possibly do onto a website that is basically run by users (and sysadmins) and that is basically feature-wise mature? I really can’t figure out 2000 people working every day on Reddit… on what? just for a quick comparison, the whole IAmA was run by a...

That argument doesn't hold under scrutiny. Reddit employs about 80 people on their iOS development team. And the app blows fucking chunks, compared to Apollo, which was made by one guy.

the articles from The Verge seem to be very favorable towards the protestors

Because that's what's driving traffic for them right now. Let's not forget that The Verge is also a soulless corporate entity. Peters has been doing a good job at covering the issues, but he wouldn't be allowed to be as thorough if the topic and angle wasn't a good driver of traffic.

OC Thoughts on Clew bindings?

Hopefully this won't get too much hate -- for those who have ridden them, what are people's take on Clew bindings? I got a cracking deal on them (~USD$200) so ordered a set. Been doing a lot of indoor snowboarding of late, so thought they'd be handy for the short length of the indoor runs, but keen to hear from anyone who's used...

I've only held them, but not ridden in them; but talking to other people, and looking at them and how they're supposed to work, I think they're overengineered and clunky. Step in bindings are a good idea for short slopes, and well, can't fault you for wanting to save money. Hell, you might even like them.

Personally, I'd rather stick to regular bindings, or if I'm going step in, I'd go with Burton or Nidecker. Flow, too, if you like the feel of those. I just think the Clews are an unnecessary implementation of the concept.

Edit: Also, they're doing the Dope approach of getting Instagram "influencers" to use them, and I just dislike that for snowboarding gear. I was talking to Malcolm Moore a couple of months ago, and he said they approached him to partner with him, but it was kinda all about the branding, and not about the riding.

Yeah, Qatar and Emirates are, of course, subsidized by their governments' oil money. I didn't know Singapore Airlines was also a state-owned airline, but if it is, it makes sense in that way, too.

Too bad they don't seem to be federating. Just tried signing up to that specific community from Kbin, but it doesn't show the content. Oh well, gonna keep my eye on it, regardless.

Fantastic game. I got 2/3s into my first campaign and then my laptop got fried, along with my save. It's such a cool game, and I love the fact that you can try the most absurd shit to complete tasks on it, and it will either succeed or fail spectacularly xD

The Steam version does say it has local co-op, although I've never tried it.

I’ve fallen into a deep gaming rut lately. What helped “get you back into” gaming and rediscover the magic of video games?

I, like many gamers, grew up playing Pokémon Red and Nintendo 64 and was obsessed with Nintendo products. I graduated to a PS2 and PS3 and became super into Metal Gear Solid and Call of Duty and Fallout. Also spent a ton of time with the Guitar Hero series. I loved the escape gaming brought me and it genuinely helped me relax....

Excellent response, and pretty much what I was going to say. I have a few hobbies (games, movies, camping, reading, live music) that I don't always have time for, at the same time. So sometimes I'll spend my free time hiking and camping, other times I'll watch movies in the evenings when I get home, and other times I'll play games.

Even something you enjoy can get tiring, if you do it a lot; and there's nothing wrong with putting that aside for a time, to spend time doing other things you like.

There are admins who are listed as mods in some subreddits, even if they probably don't do any moderation these days. Spez is a mod of r/HighQualityGifs, for example.

Snowboarding hasn't been mentioned yet.

Anyone who wants to do it somewhat seriously has their own pair of boots, from a reputable brand. Renting, or buying used boots is for rookies.

Also, there's the high-end boards from brands like Burton, Jones and Capita, which will actively try to kill anyone who doesn't know how to ride well.

Other way around. Wordpress has a plugin to "federate" your blog though ActivityPub: https://wordpress.org/plugins/activitypub/

Think of it as the people in Lemmy being Outlook users, and the people on Kbin being Gmail users. They're just different flavors of the same thing (Reddit-like link aggregators, in this case).

And, as you already know, as a user of one you can interact with the other, and vice versa.

I don't have a Mastodon account (yet), but I'll check it out :)

This was my first thought, too. That game is so incredible, and the suicide mission is such a wonderful way to bring it all together.

Honestly, as a kid, the first time I beat the Elite Four in the original Pokemon Blue. I felt like I could accomplish anything, at that moment xD

Just a note for OP, June is the sixth month, and you wrote 7 in the title xD

As far as what I'm reading, I'm starting 'Noble Roots', by Drew Hayes, one of my favorite authors. The book is part of an RPG-lit series that it's really fun and interesting. I'm not quite sure of where it's going, but I'm enjoying the ride so far. The first book is called 'NPCs'.

That's gotta be up there with the best drunk Cup parade speeches of all time, lmao. Love the woman just trying to take his mic away xD

Also, after they took his mic away, Carrier honored his last name and carried him off the stage.
