Yes, it's nothing too big. But some days exhaling swiftly through the nose is worth gold..

I want you all to read this article and pay very close attention to the exact wordings. Some examples:

Krause corpuscles — nerve endings in tightly wrapped balls located just under the skin..

"It’s been hard to get people to work on this because some people have a hard time talking about it"

Ginty and other sensory biologists have long wanted to study these mysterious neuron balls.

But irrational numbers aren't the same as imaginary numbers. Also, there are irrational imaginary numbers. And quantum physics loves using imaginary numbers. So that sentence in the image is nonsense, right?

I very much agree with the sentiment of the video, but the claim that Burj Khalifa is not connected to the municipal sewage system seems to be false:

All art is good enough for a money laundering scheme.

Somebody leak that information please, otherwise I will have to make something up and lots of people will believe it, leading to all sorts of uncomfortable consequences

Recently talked to a 90+ year old man in a park in front of his nursing home, guy is a former RC plane enthusiast. Can't do anything now because of his age, though. Bored all the time, sitting in the park is his highlight.

Thinking of donating an old gaming PC that can somewhat run the Microsoft flight simulator. Would that be a good idea? Can the average 80-90 year old use that at all, just speaking sensorically and motor skill wise?

Are there any other thoughts you have on that idea?

So I'm talking about playing previously Windows-only games on Linux, e.g. via proton.

I don't know about the libraries etc that are used - is it possible for Microsoft to use some legal voodoo, for example, to suddenly end it all, and make the use of their libraries illegal (if they belong to Microsoft in the first place)?

Or could there be other ways of interference?

I was thinking of something like the Duff Man theme and slapping sounds and moans, but I feel that Lemmy knows better.

(Obviously, I would start texting and calling him during the next meeting)

I've been reading the same thing a couple of times lately, company x removes Denuvo from game y.

What is happening? Are we returning to a state of innocence and purity?

Alright, your propaganda here over the past months has worked. I want to get into Star Trek. Where do I start? Can I take an abbreviated tour? Or do I need to go to TOS?

Hello, I love this community, but I can't stand it that so many posts don't feature the year that the artwork was made. That's such important information, just to place that piece of art in context. Maybe it can be made a requirement to include the year? What do you think?

I think it's silly to speak in full sentences to home assistants, when I really just use 5 commands most of the time.

It would be snappier to make weird sounds, produced by snapping ones tongue e.g., like some African tribes use in their languages.

Or any other weird, short sounds.

It might be more satisfying to use, and probably funnier.

Also, over the course of a few years this might find its way into everyday spoken language. Which would be wonderfully dystopian and maybe funny.

Seriously. I don't want to install something on my phone when the dev is just using a WebView, if that's what it's called. When the app is basically just a website with the browser hidden.

What's the reason for that? To attach the customer? To sell the app for money? Is there more ad revenue that way? Do you reach more people?

(Are there any good reasons for it, too? Security, maybe?)

I once heard that in the middle of 20th century, public transportation in the USA was widely privatized and bought by automotive manufacturers, and then wilfully left to rot, so that people would buy more cars.

However, I can't find anything backing that up. Do you know whether that's true, and where I can find some sources for that?

I am in an intense love-hate relationship with Spotify. It makes good mixes for me, I have found a lot of great bands that way. BUT IT KEEPS REGURGITATING THE SAME SONGS IN THERE. I know about Song Radios and Artist Radios, so please don't recommend those. Smart Shuttle doesn't cut it, either.

The best thing would be several randomness sliders. One for randomness in bands, the other for randnomness of their songs, one for genres. Please tell me some music service has implemented something like that. I am dying over here.
