The general memes channel on lemmy.ml could be for the ones who don’t mind the occasional Marxist-Leninist meme (due to the instance’s political nature), but the non-political memes channel can be the place where you can forget about politics for a while.

Someone elegantly snuck a pun into this one

English be like…

…pronounce ghoti like “fish”

Pyramid schemes as well as generating money with money

It’d be cool if you could also dial an SMS with that thing

Haven’t tried it myself, but another cool way is to send images and other files to your phone as attachments to a notification:


Yes, Google and Apple each have their own preferences in breaching the user’s privacy. Like, Google loves targeted ads while Apple wishes to know your location whenever

This idea hasn’t come to my mind until now, but if it’s true, nobody should hesitate any longer & should abandon MS products for good

Sharks are real nice ya know

I’d rather ask what the homeless do with a society that is unwelcoming to people who choose not to grind in the treadmill of capitalism

While the trees are nice, they look more like mold in the sandwich context

I’ve always turned autocorrect off before I could even get used to it.

It sure is tempting to type quicker on a virtual keyboard, but I still prefer typing out words letter by letter, mainly bc I find typing suggestions distracting.

A physical keyboard might be a better way to save time while not losing your spelling skills.

Fun fact: Star fruits are the only fruit named after a shape 🤗

Just because she’s a girl doesn’t mean she can’t film herself putting large objects inside her mouth without getting sexualized

The irony is that the company uses data from Crisis Text Line to make their customer support more “empathetic”.

A good way to learn a language is finding a tandem partner. There are plenty of Spanish speakers wanting to learn English. You could teach each other through casual communication (more fun, too)

Being pressured can backfire, like in your case. It’s a 1st step to realize what the causes are for the urge of trespassing boundaries.

The next step would be to not go along with everything, but to say no when you feel that it’s starting to overwhelm you.

We’re seeing the symptom of a mental sickness of various causes that have to be tackled right from the root.

The fact that a culture of incels could even emerge is already a warning sign that something is going awfully wrong at the intersection of socialization x sexuality.

That doesn’t make sense. How are people supposed to fight together if they are actually divided, as incels vs feminists clearly demonstrates?

While the driver is certainly to blame for not paying attention, one must ask why he even blindly trusted on the system in the first place. Tesla could still be found guilty for false advertising.

There’s an ongoing review to check if Tesla is violating the DMV regulation that bars companies from marketing their cars as autonomous when they are not.

I started with one, but by now it’s too much to count

It’s a cool, but dangerous tool in the wrong hands

It’s exploitation disguised as opportunity. The companies should pay all workers properly or go to hell

I’m surprised Org-mode (Emacs) hasn’t been mentioned here yet. If you’re more on the minimalistic side, a simple txt-file also works

Hate it when people tell me to “grow up”, whenever I do sth. that is considered childish, equating it with unserious. So I ask: Why so serious? Who defines what behavior counts as “adult” & what doesn’t? One should be free to act silly whenever (in a harmless way ofc).

Many people were the happiest when they were kids, so might as well keep the attitude, if nothing else

Or accidentally CTRL-V on a text you wanted to copy

Saw the Lemmur app in F-droid, tried it & noticed myself come back regularly when bored

i3 window manager in Linux is super minimalistic

Don’t count deleted comments
I clicked on a post with 2 comments, only to see that both are by someone who has been banned + their comments deleted. So my minor suggestion is to make it known that a comment has been deleted, but not to include it in the count anymore.

It’s boon and bane. It depends a lot on where you’re coming from: If you’re not lonely to begin with, then it probably makes you lonelier bc you spend less time with meeting friends irl, but if you’re already lonely anyway, it’s a good way to get in contact with people.

Most of us are probably in between, so there are moments when technology makes you spend more time alone, but also moments when you make use of technology to get in touch with others.

The trick is to balance out the time spent with socializing irl vs. not doing so. You’re missing out either if you don’t take advantage of tech or – the other extreme – lose yourself in it.

Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin at the Yalta Conference 1945 reshaping the world after WW2

Also, bitter veggies like radicchio or chicory

Is It Really Necessary To Logout of Web Sites?
Remember when there was no conventional logout option on Amazon? You've probably also noticed that Google and Microsoft sites try to keep you logged in, and services like Discord hide the logout somewhere hard to find
