Damn. That 3 minute streak was going strong

rockSlayer ,

How do you get it circulating again? Is it the same kind of pins-and-needles you get when a leg falls asleep?

rockSlayer ,

Water is the antithesis used to judge the alcohol

rockSlayer ,

You should always be aware of where your firearm is. I own firearms, but they're located at my dad's house locked and in his safe. If he needs to move them out of the house for any reason, he texts me about it. Carrying a firearm is a major responsibility and you must always be vigilant to where your firearm is and where it's pointed. There are no excuses.

rockSlayer ,

I'm the same, I like my space and the ability to distance myself but when I'm in the mood I can talk and socialize for hours. Then I withdraw for a while

rockSlayer ,

Well if your heart says so, then who am I to argue? Pass me the blunt

rockSlayer ,

On my last flight I was sky high on a 100mg cookie before we even finished boarding. We landed safely, I'm a hero

Ronnie is definitely a sub. He wants a taste of that McHole

Margot, does it still feel weird to see articles about yourself?

Israel threatens to strike Iran directly if Iran launches attack from its territory ( apnews.com )

Israel’s foreign minister threatened Wednesday that his country’s forces would strike Iran directly if the Islamic Republic launched an attack from its territory against Israel, as tensions between the rival powers flare following the killings of Iranian generals in a blast at the Iranian consulate in Syria....

rockSlayer ,

No it's not, because Israel struck Iran first, and now they're trying to play the victim.

NYPD Officials Orchestrated Smear Campaign of Police Critic Using Confidential Details of Her Rape, Lawsuit Alleges ( www.thecity.nyc )

In the lawsuit, filed in the Eastern District of New York on Monday, Rachlin alleges that in mid-2020 NYPD officials cut off her access to the North Brooklyn precincts her nonprofit serves and told precinct leaders not to work with her. ...

rockSlayer ,

I wanted to say ACAB, but holy shit this is way beyond fucked up. NYPD needs to be disbanded.

rockSlayer ,

The point isn't to attack abortion or reproductive healthcare, it's to make women secondary citizens again.

If you're struggling with mindfulness meditation, work on zen meditation until you can focus on the feelings of your goal. With zen meditation, you focus on your breathing and let your thoughts flow like a stream. Don't hold on to any particular thought, but don't push away the thoughts either.

Don't you know? We're going to have eclipses every day now, and that means solar power will be ineffective everywhere for all time over 2 hours of reduced output

rockSlayer ,

The only reason it's so light in MN is because it was too cloudy to stare at the sun

rockSlayer ,

I don't agree that they should abstain, but as the saying goes:

Don't interrupt your enemy when they are making a mistake.

rockSlayer ,

Let her cook. I want to see this roman timeline with Gentulius. Presumably this is against Arch Mantony in the Linux Civil War

rockSlayer ,

I have a crazy idea: let's get an ally priest to offer transubstantiation blessings for trans people

rockSlayer ,

My favorite was when a person claimed civ was non-political. It's literally "Politics: the Game"

rockSlayer ,

I've played a lot of civ, and there's far more politics to it than just the main gameplay loop.

rockSlayer ,

I prefer the communities method more, since slows down my over sharing

rockSlayer ,

I've got it down to a science so I can procrastinate until the night before:

  • How many days? That many pairs of socks, underwear, and shirts, half that many pairs of pants. 2 additional pairs of socks and an extra shirt
  • Deodorant
  • Check to make sure the dedicated travel phone charger is still packed
  • Notebook
  • Laptop and charger dedicated to travel
  • A book that's easy to pickup and set down
  • Corded headphones
  • Dedicated laundry bag for trips longer than 10 days
  • Bring a toothbrush for trips longer than 3 days
  • Bedding, soap, and shampoo only when traveling to the wilderness

I like to travel as light as I can and most of my trips are for a week or less, so oftentimes the only thing I need for luggage is a single carryon bag

rockSlayer ,

Yep! If you know you'll have a bare bed, the sleeping bag can be used as bedding so you can save packing a blanket. If you know you'll be in decent motels or better, you can save on packing the bedding if it's not specialized. The only specialized thing I need for road trips are road atlases. Make sure you know how to read a map before you need it though. I assume this is for the eclipse, so make sure to pack bug spray and a thick sweatshirt if you're coming to the Midwest

rockSlayer ,

I carry some disposable pre-pasted brushes instead

rockSlayer ,

I accept this deal, but I won't be happy about it.

rockSlayer , (edited )

I needed that as a teen. I went from 5' 5" (165cm) to 6' 2" (188cm) over the course of 3 years. If I was particularly hungry, I'd eat 2/3 of the bowl

Edit: I feel like it's necessary to mention that I wouldn't eat more than 2/3 of the bowl because I felt like it would be unfair to have more than that

rockSlayer ,

Someone has to bite the bullet and ask the obvious questions. Everybody starts somewhere and learns at their own pace, so there's probably dozens more with the same problem but too afraid to ask.

rockSlayer ,

My first thought when I saw the bill was how this would impact farming, i.e. spreading herbicides and pesticides. These jackasses want to directly hurt their constituents over an imaginary conspiracy.

rockSlayer ,

Go fuck yourself dude, be self righteous somewhere else.

rockSlayer ,

Well I mean sarcastic or not, the comment isn't appropriate. It's very unlikely she started praying because she thought the person was a sinner, she started praying for the person's safety. Prayer for something like this is an expression of concern.

rockSlayer ,

They'll complain about it until Obama becomes white in 2008. I'm cool with Biden continuing to hammer this issue.

rockSlayer ,

Then you haven't been paying attention. Republicans are on track to lose their house majority before the election even occurs, because the special elections are being won in red states by Democrats campaigning on abortion rights.

    5 minutes in and the only words of sense came from Greta.

    rockSlayer ,

    Fun fact, that's still genocide.

    rockSlayer ,

    ICC Elements of Crimes, Article 6 (e):

    Genocide by forcibly transferring children

    Elements

    1. The perpetrator forcibly transferred one or more persons. *
    2. Such person or persons belonged to a particular national, ethnical, racial or religious group.
    3. The perpetrator intended to destroy, in whole or in part, that national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as
      such.
    4. The transfer was from that group to another group.
    5. The person or persons were under the age of 18 years.
    6. The perpetrator knew, or should have known, that the person or persons were under the age of 18 years.
    7. The conduct took place in the context of a manifest pattern of similar conduct directed against that group
      or was conduct that could itself effect such destruction

    * The term “forcibly” is not restricted to physical force, but may include threat of force or coercion, such as that caused by fear of violence,
    duress, detention, psychological oppression or abuse of power, against such person or persons or another person, or by taking advantage of a
    coercive environment

    rockSlayer ,

    So, a police state for children?

    rockSlayer ,

    What do you think should be done then?

    rockSlayer ,

    I'm an organizer. I want to be in an online leftist space where I can support the causes I care about in a casual way. I want to read these articles in my spare time, so I can be a better organizer when I move to my next campaign. No one is seriously organizing on lemmy.

    Not only that, but the point of these actions are to pressure the status quo. It's hard to do that without getting published. If lemmy is too small to affect change positively, then how is it so big that it will affect change negatively?

    rockSlayer ,

    I mean let's be real, this is a "display only" knife lol goofy knives are the best

    rockSlayer , (edited )

    They're trying to push the idea that it was an "error-prone" AI. So if we're following along, that means either the strikes against civilians, journalists, and aid workers were deliberate or the AI is not accurate and they've been indiscriminately bombing civilians. Both are crimes of Genocide.

    rockSlayer ,

    I see, so we're just believing that it's "faulty AI" rather than deliberate decisions? When it comes to war crimes, it's not the fault of the AI.

    rockSlayer ,

    Same as it ever was, all across the world. Everyone just accepts the status quo, but if progressives are elected and the problems aren't immediately solved then it's back to the shit show from before

    rockSlayer ,

    There's a significant amount of people that have never met a trans person (or at least a trans person that didn't pass), so it's just foreign and scary to them. Think of it like a horror movie (to be clear, I'm not comparing trans people to horror movie creatures): the movie is more suspenseful and scary if we're only able to see the creature from the shadows for a decent chunk of the first act. When a horror movie shows the the creature right away, the horror has to come from somewhere else. I think the idea is to take away the fear by presenting trans people to transphobes without endangering trans people.

    rockSlayer ,

    "/s" means the person is being sarcastic, but there's also a name for this kind of thing: tone indicators. There are several tone indicators out there, all are meant to carry the meaning of the text. If I'm being honest, some tone indicators don't need to exist because they reintroduce confusion for people that need them for the full context.

    France 'Intends Legal Action' Against French-Israeli Soldiers Complicit in Gaza War Crimes ( www.palestinechronicle.com )

    According to Haaretz, the “underreported announcement” came after “pressure from members of the far-left France Unbowed party,” as well as the release of “various unverified videos” on social media platforms which show Israeli soldiers “engaged in illegal acts against prisoners of war.”...

    rockSlayer ,

    Netanyahu, other high ranking politicians, and IDF troops can be sentenced for the crimes of Genocide, Crimes Against Humanity, and War Crimes. These crimes come with prison sentences and execution.
