Leftist with an incorrigible love for fancy aesthetics that might be incorrectly read as a monarchist because of that.

Pronouns are whatever. He/She/They… They all work.

The fun part about this is that it works on every country.

Shiiiiiiiiiiiet. This is gonna get me wanting to build an ill-advised project box.

Powered by fairy dust and the tears of a forsaken child, I presume.

I thought that by this point anyone in the Russian hierarchy that wasn’t a yes man would have gotten unmarked-vanned, given what they’ve been doing to, y’know, the people? But, who knows.

Tbh I’m scared Putin will just say fuck it and hit the nuke button.

He is crazy enough.

The world would be a much simpler place if we all took a deep breath and admitted to ourselves and others that we are not purely rational beings, never were, never will be, aren’t meant to be.

“Logic and Reason” are useful tools, but treating them as the end-all-be-all of everything is foolhardy at best.

Plus, the more “rational” you claim to be (aka, the more you reject your own emotions and refuse to accept and understand them because you think emotions are for others), the more likely you are to make decisions that are, in fact, not rational at all but that you’ve convinced yourself are the logical thing. Our rational brains are incredibly good at coming up with reasonings for our emotional responses that make sense to us but wouldn’t actually hold up to scrutiny.

Simply asking for sources doth not a debatebro make.

There’s a certain smarmy attitude paired with self-importance that makes a debatebro.

To be like, proper debatebro you have to be stalking people and demanding they debate you based on a statement they made days ago. You have to be sneering and asking for a source when they say that water is wet, even though water being wet is such a common piece of knowledge that the onus of proof should be on the one disagreeing. Shid like that.

A personal philosophy whose main tenet is “be annoying”.

Annoy people who follow religions, regardless if they’re minding their own business or if they’re actually doing harm.

Annoy other atheists for random bullshit.

Basically, annoying people is its own reward. The point is to convince yourself you’re superior to other peeps.

Though the RAYTHEIST community is no longer what it used to be. Most of the big names that kept it alive were absorbed into larger movements, mostly political ones. We now know them as “debate-bros”. There’s leftist debate-bros, rightist debate-bros, centrist debate-bros…

The millions who don’t do not hold power.

Saying “Americans” might be a gross generalisation, but as long as your country acts like the planet’s collective abusive partner, I’ll just. Continue to shit on y’all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yeah I’m kinda used to it. As said before, in my country (Brazil) the power grid is… It depends on which state you are in. It’s 120 in my state, but directly south of us is one that uses 240, and to the north two that use 120. I’m used to reading labels and flicking voltage switches.

Since I’m also in the never banned club, the most controversial thing I ever said on Reddit, based entirely on community reactions, was probably “americans perceive everyone outside america as sub-humans who are beneath self-determination, like they should be the ones to choose how we do everything”.

Sounds like at least among lefties this should have been an uncontroversial statement, but gods I made some gringos mad on that day.

Never banned. Purged previous accounts to start anew a couple of times. Plus I’m still there.

One of these days I gotta try a Linux without SystemD, just to see if it was worth all the fuss. When I started my Linux journey SystemD was already the default on most distros normal people would use (Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, Suse, etc.) and I just never bothered exploring, despite all the bad things ™ said about SystemD in Linux forums.

Off the top of my head – There is also td-win and voat (which are like, Reddit for neo-nazis) and hexbear (which is like, Reddit for leftists who lack the social skills to be around even other leftists)

  1. Lemmy is newer than Reddit. Reddit has been up for over 15 years.
  2. Lemmy is a Reddit clone but less well known, thus, whatever advantages it has over Reddit, you can pretty much assume anyone who comes to Lemmy is someone who was on Reddit and saw some reason to leave. Or even still uses Reddit but is trying their hand here too. At least for now.
  3. Thus, the Lemmy userbase will, at least within the near future, be a small subset of current or former Redditors.

Anyone else feel *weird* when looking at AI-generated art?
Like. A friend-of-friends got in on Dall-E 2 and was showing some stupid shite they made with it. And the thing is. It _is_ impressive as hell? You give it a vague description and it _will_ give you something that generally matches the vibe of the description. Plus looks very well rendered. But also. Uh. It gives me these weird dystopian feelings. It being in Elongated Muskquito's pockets doesn't _help_ with that feeling, but it's not its main cause. I can't even articulate _why_ it makes me feel so uncomfy though. Was hoping someone smarter than I shared in the same feeling.
