I'm not following your logic here. Not voting, or actually voting for Trump both work in his favor because his base is going to vote for him no matter what. You would only be hurting the side that wants us to continue to have future elections. But at the end of the day if you can look in the mirror and be ok with selling out democracy more power to ya.

It had votes/support from both sides. And giving away democracy because you're upset about a social media site seems like a bad take. Imagine telling future generations you traded the country's democracy because you were mad at them because they took away your short video sites.

Ugh, I HATE making plans that far out because who knows how I'm going to feel, what the weather is going to be like, etc.

Who votes for the dictator because of losing TikTok?

Imagine waiting underground for years just finally emerge to find your mate and turns out you have some fungus that makes you into a sexual monster and then ...

Once the cicadas emerge from the ground, they molt into adults, and within a week to 10 days, the fungus causes the backside of their abdomens open up. A chalky, white plug erupts out, taking over their bodies and making their genitals fall off.

So their plan to deescalate a kid making threats is to expel the kid for a year (or forever), and then also taking away their license (for a year)?

I'm sure "ruining" a kids life instead of listening to them and getting them help wouldn't speed up an unstable kids time-table for revenge at all. Probably best to not even try and understand why a kid is making the threat in the first place, that might require addressing issues and make people uncomfortable.

I think the issue here is that you no longer can have "balanced" political discussion when one side cannot help but regurgitate conspiracy theories, disinformation, and just 100% proven false statements in bad faith. The minute you platform these people any meaningful "debate" evaporates and you're left with discussion not based on anything in reality. And trying to only works to drag the Overton Window to the right.

I think if he is made to leave he is either 1) jailed or 2) fined and reprimanded and back again the next day. Leaving the state to campaign would almost certainly get him found in contempt and jailed for at least a little while.

So the way I have heard it explained by lawyers is that people can still have feelings one way or the other, but if they can put them aside and listen to facts and come to a decision based on those facts, NOT feelings, then they would be "qualified".

And with millions of people in Manhattan to draw upon, it should be possible.

I'm not a woman, but the choice also comes with emotional baggage that if forced to travel for these procedures, must also come along on the trip. It may not be a case of just get in the car and go. Because, if you pack it up and bring it along, you (ie. women) have to unpack that at some point, and doing it on a road trip may not be the best setting.

submitted 3 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

The server has now been updated to Lemmy 0.19.3 release. Let me know if you see anything that seems broken, and enjoy!

Lemmy 0.19.2 Update (

I have updated the site to Lemmy 0.19.2 so let me know if you notice anything ... wonky. =)

I just wanted to wish anyone like myself, that struggles with the sheer amount of stimulation and hustle bustle of this time of year, the best of luck. You got this! I know it's not easy, but we will make it out the other side and hopefully not be to mentally drained (fingers crossed).

submitted 4 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

This is just a heads up that I'm readying the server for the new 0.19.1 update so there will be a little downtime for the site once it begins. I'm hopeful that I can do it without buggering the whole thing up and needing to do any restores. =)

See you on the other side!

As the title states, the instance is now running Lemmy 0.19.0 release. Overall I think it's running good, and some good quality of life features added.

You can read more about it here.

submitted 7 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I just update the instance to the newest lemmy-ui:0.19.0-beta.1 and lemmy:0.19.0-rc.1 builds, and as far as I can tell nothing blew up. =)

Oh and the site should work with logins now as well that was broken by an in between build that changed the database but not the front end to talk to it.

I broke all the things! (

My constant quest for the new shiny caused me to bork the site for a short time until I could grok what I did wrong and fix it.

Sorry if anyone was inconvenienced!!

This is just a post to validate anyone who doesn't feel seen. If you think you might be autistic or have ADHD (or both), your feelings are valid, and I understand.

Music (
submitted 9 months ago* (last edited 9 months ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Maybe it's just me, but hopefully not, but the thing I love about music is when it's able to express and/or make me feel emotions I personally would never be able to articulate.

I listen to alot of "Jam Bands", and I think the greatest draw for me is when you get a band passionate about making music for ppl to enjoy and they can just go all out for 20+ minutes ... It's like your just someplace else and I feel it. It's almost like a comfortable weight (I like pressure/weight on me). If the lyrics are amazing even better!

I also enjoy music that has some amazingly expressive lyrics, but with music that's "raw" (full of emotion).

I just got done watching this [NSFW] video of The Carasmatic Voice watching Rage Against The Machine for the first time. The emotional weight of the song is pretty high for me, and then watching her reactions and break down is just wow. She gives a description and can explain why I feel the way the music makes me feel that way and it's just ... amazing and I love it. Like I feel the rollercoaster and anger and her ability to process and describe it adds like another satisfying layer on top of the music for me.

Sorry for the wall of text! Noted the video is NSFW because Rage is more often than not going to be something corporate overlords are NOT going to be excited to hear employees listening to at work.

I hate the days (like today) that I spend all my free time doing something I find interesting instead of doing all the stuff I know needs to be done, just because my brain finds it more interesting.

(the interesting thing was this site btw)

Instance Updated (
submitted 10 months ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Updated the instance to the bleeding edge, because I can't NOT if I know that I can. I do hope that it will help with some federation/community stuff that I am seeing.

I hope that this can become the Lemmy version of /r/AutisticWithADHD and be a safe place for all. Creating this community, and instance, has been my hyperfocus since Reddit announced the API changes. It has been a lot of hours in the works, but if I can use it to give back to the community and provide a safe space for anyone with Autism or ADHD, or both, then yay!
