The entire field of data science should have never existed, and the fact that it needs to be said is an indictment of the computer science community as it stands today

Exclusive report from inside the reclusive isolationist island nation North Brittania!

citizens are being arrested for speaking out against their Great Leader, Charles

schoolchildren in North Brittania are required to sing a patriotic song "God Save the King," because according the state religion, the Leader will live forever

the nation is hardly able to produce food and relies entirely on foreign aid. despite this they are constantly hostile to and xenophobic of foreign countries

the state maintains "tourist cities" where they pretend to be a normal country, so nobody visiting will realize how oppressive the regime truly is. Leader Charles lives in opulence in a massive palace while the average North Brittanian does not even have air conditioning

the average North Brittanian has to subsist on toast and baked beans, and is forced to drink tea so they can work longer hours

citizens must wait years for doctors' appointments due to the oppressive bureaucracy of the regime. they do not even have access to basic medicine like dextroamphetamine or estradiol cypionate

North Brittanians are required to have a portrait of their Leader, Charles, in their house, and it must be displayed in a certain place at a downward facing angle, and must be larger than any other picture displayed in the house

the North Brittanians are only allowed access to state owned media. they are not allowed to turn their radios off, so they must hear state propaganda broadcasts, and there is only one tv channel. news is monopolized by the state propaganda outlet The Daily Mail

the citizens are not allowed to own any weapons, even kitchen knives, while the militarized state police regularly patrol to look for anyone violating social codes, such as strictly enforced gender roles

North Brittania has maintained separation from South Brittania, across a narrow channel of water, for hundreds of years, not even sending aid when South Brittania was conquered and occupied by the French Regime.

being such a hostile country, they even once fought a brutal war with the United States

the country sits on untapped reserves of valuable resources like coal and graphite it refuses to share with the world beyond its iron curtain

North Brittania is in possession of a large nuclear arsenal, and has long-range missiles capable of striking targets as distant as Italy at any time!

we got this exclusive inside information from a refugee who escaped North Brittania to the free country of Ohio. their identity will be kept secret, or North Brittanian spies could find them and subject them to brutal torture

⚠️ PSA Kiwifarms going down 

If indeed kiwifarms is going to be down for good, please understand that y'all should expect a TON of new activity in the fediverse. We've seen it with other sites and this is no different. If you're an admin be prepared for adding new domain blocks, if you're a user do not shy away from reporting and please consider enabling follow requests and disable DMs from non-mutuals.

I know this feels like an overreaction, but better safe than sorry. 🖤

I'm like Walter White if he download roms instead of cooking meth

Statement on “Join The Fedi” jointhefedi.com is a website owned by known “gender critical” activist Alex Gleason. The domain name and SEO is clearly designed to appeal to individuals curious about the fediverse, and potentially take traffic from joinmastodon.org. Unfortunately, Gleason does not have the best intentions when it comes to helping the fediverse grow. Gleason formerly contributed to other fediverse projects, before being removed from doing so due both his behavior and poor code quality. This is a problematic individual, recommending problematic services.

Join The Fedi has an explicitly right-wing agenda and seems to only promote instances which either a) run the “Soapbox” front-end software created by Gleason himself or b) advertise themselves as “free speech” instances. As of right now, the site actively recommends the following instances:

poa.st (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Spinster.xyz (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Shitposter.club (blocked by Howlr for harassment)
Gleasonator.com (blocked by Howlr for transphobia)
Freespeechextremist.com (blocked by Howlr for hate speech)

In other words, Gleason is using the site to promote his own agenda rather than simply gain more users into the fediverse. This is not a site that should be recommended to new users. I would recommend using https://joinfediverse.wiki/ instead!

Thank you!

I love krautrock cause it sounds like how I expected the Grateful Dead to sound based on how boomers who've done too much acid describe them

"Cryptocurrency proponents often invoke the “freedom” that we will supposedly gain by decoupling currency from the state. Yet of the various organs of government, I, personally, am much more likely to have my freedom unjustly impinged upon by the County Sheriff than the County Recorder of Deeds. This is true for all of us who did not luck into fortune, yet it’s the inverse for the Peter Thiels of the world. Whose freedom are they talking about?"

“people being armed is pointless because the state has bigger guns/more guns/etc”

consider the fly

it is weak, insignificant, and the average person detests it. if it comes to fly around their airspace they will swat at it with their hands without second thought. the human has a million times its strength, they know they can kill it effortlessly

now consider the wasp

it has comparable strength and flying ability to the fly. the average person hates this insect too. but if it comes near them, they recoil. they won’t try to strike it with their overwhelmingly powerful hands that could crush it to death effortlessly. it poses no danger to the human on its own, unless there is an allergic reaction it has virtually no chance of killing the human.

but the human fears it, they keep their distance. they can kill it, but they will do so deliberately, they will need to plan for it. they’ll sooner deploy chemical weapons on it than fight it directly. the human will kill it one on one, but the human will avoid the confrontation as long as it can do so. the individual wasp has a significantly better survival chance in a human encounter than the fly

a huge nest of wasps, this collective can kill a person, even if the person brings its most powerful weapons to confront it. if it’s directly impacting the person’s life, built right on their house, encroaching on their domain, the person will take action and destroy it. but if it’s out of sight, if it’s more easily ignored, it will be ignored, allowed to grow into a bigger threat unnoticed, even though victory would be all but assured for the human. the human knows where a wasp nest is and has the power to destroy that commune, but they will rather tell people not to go there–that’s wasp territory

be wasps

Alright, I'm putting my foot down. Cryptocurrency is not a payment system, it's a pyramid scheme. That's not my opinion, it's a proven fact. If you give any of that bullshit the time of day, I'm muting you on sight.

Peertube is really frustrating for me cause on paper it sounds like it should be the best parts of internet archive and vimeo rolled into one, but instead I have to keep coming across the 6 Hour Hitler Movie
