The only Android devices I've seen last for years are Huawei phones.

Hmm, interesting. Where are you from?

I keep seeing men online (Reddit, Instagram, TikTok) saying how they don't know personal details about their male friends of several years. It is mostly said in a proud context, or in disbelief when a woman talks about it.

I'm talking about knowing someone for years and not knowing what they do for work specifically, their relationship status/major issues, their life goals, their family situation, birthdays, and stuff like that.

For context, I am a man in my 20s. I have a close friend group of around 10 people. We all know each other very well. We have a group chat, and meet at least once a week (obviously some people can't always make it). We know a lot of details about each other, so this idea of being close friends with someone and not knowing personal stuff about each other seems foreign and weird to me.

Does it actually happen, or just internet hyperbole?

If you are still somewhat young, its better to use a pseudonym. I'm not sure how "spicy" we are talking, but you might not be as much of an "extremist" when you grow up, so it's better to not have these ideas permanently linked to your name. It might even affect job prospects, no matter whether you change your ideology or not.

I can't manage to make Kate look half descent on Mint (Cinnamon). It does look great on Plasma

[-] [email protected] 2 points 10 months ago

I am aware of this one, but it still leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I think I'll start using Kate, and contribute whatever features I'm missing if I can.

While I understand the lack of proper open source alternatives for some software like AutoCAD and After Effects, it always felt weird that the best IDEs/Text Editors are made by big corporations, because you know, these are the tools programmers use.

I tried vim/neovim, which I enjoy using, but I've come to prefer visual editors instead of text based. Kate looks promising, and I'm willing to contribute to it in my free time, but it just has that "amateurish" feel to it that I can't explain.

Anyone aware of other alternatives?

Exactly. I'm a mod in a few subreddits, the biggest of which is /r/Showerthoughts. People don't notice our existence unless we interact with them directly, and you rarely interact with users unless to ban them or to remove their content. So it is expected to be hated.

He is not denying that they are building settlemens. He just doesn't consider it occupation. Anything for more donors, I suppose.

Once out of Texas, he sent a death certificate to the prison stating he had died.

I'm neither American, European, Russian, nor Chinese, and have no clear vested interest in any if them. Seeing how Americans view China as the "big evil" from the outside is just mind-boggling. Most of the bad stuff you think China did, they didn't. Some of the terrible stuff they did, the US did as well. They do have a bad side that the US doesn't have, but the US does some things worse than China.

Now its easy for the naive to just reply "whataboutism" to my comment and move on. But what I'm trying to say is that the world isn't black and white. The US isn't the "good guys", no one is. Take a look at some communities on Lemmygrad. You might change some of your views.

It is common in the middle east, with some leeway. Like if someone is sitting diagonal to you such that your foot isn't directly facing them, it's okay. Unless its a professional meeting, then having your foot up is just disrespectful, but I imagine that goes for most countries.

Alright, so you don’t acknowledge the problem, still fits the definition.

I'd hate for our discussion to be about semantics, but I'm saying that we don't believe in the problem. If I'd say "Hey, regarding the vampire situation, you have your head in the sand, because you won't acknowledge the problem", it wouldn't be an accurate statement, or correct usage of the phrase.

unwilling to recognize or acknowledge a problem or situation

I'm not saying that we are unwilling to recognize a problem, the problem itself is greatly exaggerated, or even non-existent.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 10 months ago

Yeah I agree. I'm mostly talking about what you'll find on Twitter and big subreddits.

I'm talking about the Poneglyphs in Skypia, Alabasta, and Fish-Man Island for example. Like the one in FMI, we know its Joy Boy apologizing, but it would have been great if we had the full exact text.

Looking for good games for Android. By good, I mean a game with a story, no ads or in-app purchases. I'm okay with paying for it, but I'm looking for a good experience. The game should be story-based, as in it has an ending, not an infinite game. Any recommendations?

I mean the dev is obviously free to work on whatever he wants, but I've had a Tildes account for like 2 years now, and honestly it never got any traction. Lemmy on the other hand is getting a lot of users, and it is desperately missing a non-buggy app.

Any specific reason?

Feel free to share it with people, or suggest any edits for me to make.

When browsing All, I would like to block some instances, mainly those in a different language that just clutter my feed. Is that possible?

Spoilers are allowed.

Whenever I finish watching a new movie, I like to go to Reddit and browse the discussion threads to see what people thought of it. From now on, I'll start a thread here if it doesn't already exist.

What did you think of the movie? How did you interpret the ending? Feel free to discuss anything about the movie you like.
