I’ve never seen this variation and I like it a lot.

@fossilesque id just swap the vim commands :xq and :q! and watch the world burn

[–] [email protected] 27 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago) (1 children)

:q! Is the only vim command I know pls don't do this to me. :,)

[–] Crack0n7uesday 8 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

I think there's a punk rock song called she bangs or something like that...

[–] [email protected] 9 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

yes by the Godfather of Punk himself Ricky Martin

I was just goofin' on the idea of Ricky Martin being a punk idol

https://youtu.be/5ihtX86JzmA?si=d_PaOtRV_BaDHR4o his style is slightly different

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

I prefer the William hung cover

fun unsolicited vim fact: just :x works as save and quit

[–] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago) (1 children)

Not to be confused with :X, which is to encrypt the file.

[–] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

I see, "X" as in "encrypt", got it. Easy to remember, and not confusing at all. I love Vím!

[–] [email protected] 2 points 3 weeks ago

Its for XEncrypt so it posts to twitter after encrypting

Wanda just knows that Timmy is a complete idiot and would find a way to threaten the survival of humanity with any wish.

unrelated but did you just dump 15+ memes at once or is it wonky federation issues

[–] [email protected] 48 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

It's federation. I get dumps of reports from different servers hours after I remove them. I tend to post them over a span of an hour or so. Remember we are tiny, trying to weave us a bit more.

Have him wish for a change in the duration of a second, and watch as the metric system falls apart.

Then watch all protons suddenly burp out a couple of leptons and a photon, instantly decay into some other lower mass thingy.

[–] AffineConnection 9 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

As long as protons are the lowest mass baryon, there is nothing for them to decay to (barring violation of baryon number conservation).

[–] niktemadur 6 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

But surely with a higher mass, they'll be - to quote C3PO here - not entirely stable, with a new lower mass and that particle having another name.

I wish everyone was addicted to crack

[–] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago (2 children)

That counts as mind control, which is against da rulez

[–] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

I wish crack was legal and was contained in every type of potato and rice

You just need to work around da rulez

[–] [email protected] 1 points 3 weeks ago

Technically not. There are habits, which are mental, and then there are chemical addictions.

Regardless, you could simply wish for crack to magically appear in everyone's blood stream in a constant pace for the next week, then turn it off suddenly, and watch everyone (except the crackheads with a stash) go through hell together.

[–] BowtiesAreCool 14 points 3 weeks ago

And then Cosmos wand goes limp and farts, because that’s against Da Rules

Wanda, I wish I had an extra inch

noo timmy, you're still a child, why are you already so concerned with how others perceive you??!

Cosmo, I want a flashlight so bright I can see inside a black hole.

LOL here you go. Want me to teleport you to the event horizon for testing?

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

I don't feel very positive about this idea.

[–] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago) (2 children)

@fossilesque looks like federation is broken, so I can't directly reply to your comment, but :xq is save and quit, :q! is quit without saving.

[–] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

I :q! then nano lmao

at risks

We need better AI to write this stuff.

[–] skye 12 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

so now someone that's (probably) not a native English speaker making a writing mistake is AI to you?

[–] Aux -2 points 3 weeks ago (1 children)

Non native speakers usually write better than native speakers.

[–] Got_Bent 5 points 3 weeks ago

As a long time teacher of ESL back in the day, I'd say that depends heavily on the native language.

European languages generally do well

Asian languages generally struggle

Middle Eastern languages, well, things don't translate well on paper

Conversely, I found the middle Eastern students to have excellent speaking abilities.

The difference in how the mind processes speaking vs writing was truly fascinating to me.
