Global coral bleaching event called by US climate agency for the fourth time in history after year of extreme ocean heat ( www.abc.net.au )

This is something everyone should be worried about, and everyone should be angry about, frankly,” NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch coordinator Derek Manzello said....

Same here, using the US backed SWIFT system seems absurd. I'd be mindful of the shit around Crypto though, it's why I like

As always converting to fiat will be the issue.

Why is Session always mentioned ? It's an Australian company, in a land with zero constitutional oversight I'd be more inclined to think its a honeypot then a privavy focused chat app. Anom springs to mind as an example.

James Webb telescope confirms there is something seriously wrong with our understanding of the universe ( www.livescience.com )

Astronomers have used the James Webb and Hubble space telescopes to confirm one of the most troubling conundrums in all of physics — that the universe appears to be expanding at bafflingly different speeds depending on where we look....

But they always do, always, everywhere.

Even France which prides itself on it's secularism is getting pounded. The US is delusional, "In God We Trust" ? Really, fuck that guy...

If you have church, it's always church and state.

Dine. The book is terrible, I couldn't read it at all after trying twice... way back decades ago, the recent movie was good.

Great Barrier Reef suffering ‘most severe’ coral bleaching on record as footage shows damage 18 metres down ( www.theguardian.com )

Ward said the impact of bleaching had been extensive across 16 sites that she visited in the reef’s southern section, affecting coral species that had usually been resistant to bleaching. Some coral had started to die, a process that usually takes weeks or months after bleaching occurs....

Republicans Worry They Could Lose the House—Before the Election ( time.com )

When Republicans gained control of the House in November 2022, many in Washington wondered how they would be able to govern effectively with one of the slimmest majorities in history. Some Democrats even speculated if they might be able to take back the House before the term ended....

You can port your goodreads reviews and upload them to bookwhyrn to help populate reviews AFAIK.

These numpties are in Australia, their stupidity has leaked and infested many parts of the world. I just read today of an Australian attempting to get out of a speeding fine of $180 using SovCit logic and was fined $1800 instead by the magistrate.

Yes they are expensive, but they have been for years. I have made my own for 15 years or so. My old Rancillio Espresso is still going strong 15 years later.

There's already "congestion pricing", its paid for in time.

All this does is allow the weathy easier access.. More cycle ways that take away car parking and better, very cheap PT are actual solutions.

I own Meta shares have not used FB for 15 years or more. The shares have done well for me.

FB is excellent at leveraging peoples ignorance and haziness.

It's a neo liberal "solution" to keep kicking the can down the road.

We either go to social housing or this.gets worse, the only path to social housing seems.via the Greens. I own my own small place outright but Vote Green.

I'd actually agree with it IF they also didn't bother harassing piracy. So fuck 'em until then.

Comkekety disagree, we're as stupid Look to the UK, a billionare shit stain as PM.

I agree, which speaks volumes as to why we're in this fuckig mess. He's representative of the deplorables.

Are you 25? Hawke was a shit stain who drank beer and loved sport thus endearing him to many while he fucked over the rest while they were distracted with his circus act

He started the rot that got worse and worse from there with successive governments.

The only quasi "decent" PM we've had in my life was Gough Whitlam.

@hanrahan@slrpnk.net avatar

I don't agree at all. It's like tolerating intolerance. Meta is dogshit, with.a differt purpose to ActivityPub, i.e to exploit people for financial gain, why you'd want to be part of that toxicity voluntarily is a mystery.

i found a great goodreads alternative

i've been trying to find an alternative to goodreads for a long time, and among the requirements were a nice interface, a complete database of books, a social component (friends, recommendations, voting reviews...) and a spanish language. the latter is not fulfilled in this case, but time will tell. i recently tried storygraph...

Then why call it Fuckcars? Call it CuddlyPussDriverLove

I find it good too vent at arseholes who drive. They hold all the power, we're not punching down here by making fun of, or laughing at them and it can be a relief valve to vent at their choices both directly and indirectly that enable the car centric shit show to.continue. I wouldn't go into /c/cars and expect angst against cars and drivers but /c/fuckcars ? Yeah... it's in the name
