I ll start : I have been following a pretty known tech/Linux journalist, and always found he is a fun dude to listen to, with interesting tech takes

The fact that he is also very openly "american conservative" (aka, religious & weapon nut, anti abortion, etc) annoys me, but i keep those things separate. And he does keep it separate too (politics channel vs tech channel), which is a great decision.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is a ~~harmless~~ (EDIT: please check at least https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acetylcysteine for possible side effects) compound which protects your liver, you can buy after searching like for 10 seconds

I ve been taking it for a week (1 pill, 600mg per day) before noticing that drinking doesn't do anything. Went to a party, drank 3 pints of beer, one after another, with absolutely zero effect. Usually, just 1 pint is enough to get socially talkative, 3 pints of beer i am supposed to be very obviously drunk.

Another time, drank a third of a bottle of wine (at my place, so it cannot possibly be watered down), the only effect was nausea (which never happened before), again, zero drunk-ness effect.

Now, depending on people that anti-alcohol protection might be an advantage or drawback. I just found it interesting, so sharing here

Edit: as one comment points out: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30019966/

That's a lazy solution without installing Peertube/Piped/Invidious etc,,

Piped/Invidious (self.selfhosted)
submitted 6 months ago by kSPvhmTOlwvMd7Y7E to c/selfhosted

In the lght of recent events (gloogel complaining about uBlock) I tried to investigate other available options out there. While Piped.video definitely works, it looks like it is only fluid for popular videos, and as soon as I want to watch something a little more obscure, it is basically impossible, I have infinite wheel spinning.

Have anyone here tried self hosting Piped/ Invidious, and could share a feedback about performance /usability ?

Fresh water, anyone? (self.asklemmy)
submitted 6 months ago* (last edited 6 months ago) by kSPvhmTOlwvMd7Y7E to c/asklemmy

The following activities:

  • Visiting a new place, making new encounters and otherwise having a memorable day
  • Kissing a girl you I never kissed before
  • yeah orgasm too

All produce kinda the same feeling of drinking a glass of fresh, delicious water on a long, hot day

I had this feeling so many times, and wondering how many people think the same?

Some other clues which indicates I am not totally insane

  • in english, men are "thirsty"
  • in french, women are "fresh"
  • .. ?

I am glad to announce you guys that number of tankies here is below 4% according to up/downvotes

It's low enough to know them by their usernames and shame them every time they post something

Imagine an XL table:

_ A B
X 1 2
Y 3 4

If "A" and "B" are called "headers" what do you call "X" and "Y"?

EDIT: thanks everyone, i ll go with "row headers" as opposed to "column headers"

I just can't, and sadly it's worst in Linux community. Like dude's face hair makes him look 45, but no, he does a desktop with a cringy looking 15 old anime girl. (That, on top of hiz annoyingly high pitched voice but whatever) I just stop watching the video on the spot, it's beyond dumb.

The stupid NSFW tag on Lemmy? I turned it ON to occasionally see boobs, not some drawn pictures of underage kiddo, this pisses me off so much, JUST FCKING STAHP with this shit.

I have an impression suddenly, in a span of 2 years everyone started to jerk off on that bullshit and are proud to show it

That's 30% less downloads, not 30% less traffic . I am not sure how that translates to current users.

Unfortunately vatniks are too dumb to acknowledge that milk went bad, and will continue to drink it like nothing happened

I am mildly in favor of that. Kids can't decide what to wear it's their parents who do.

This will simply reduce the artificial divide between those wear that type of stuff and who doesn't.

I also don't believe it's a freedom endangering, because they're aren't spontaneously people wearing abayas or burka or whatever just for the pleasure of it, I interpret the fact of wearing it as religious propaganda and artificial separation.
