FUN FACT: Uber lost about $5B last year. If fares were set high enough to just break even they would cost more than a traditional taxi. Every rideshare you take is subsidized by the finance industry in a ploy to profit off the destruction of unionized companies and public transit

the fucked up thing about programming is that nobody ever says "it's cool the way you use a for loop there! i like the way you named those variables, those are good names" the only say "why did you do it like that, thats the way a baby would program. youre a baby. and not even one of the babies who can program"

Happy New Year's everyone. Falling asleep now. At least until the neighbors and their fireworks wake me up again.

Moving starts in earnest tomorrow morning.

@Annalee I'm doing everything I can to be packed to move by the first, while also working this week. One end of the city to the other.

It's not the kind of project I want to be doing, but it is the project I have.

Hashtags are the *only* way to find people who're into the same stuff as you without having to ask folks for help. So:

1) Add hashtags to your positive public posts, and

2) When you post a hashtag, click it and boost something positive from that hashtag.

It helps get positive and interesting posts further out into the fediverse, and lets newbies find and follow people who share their interests. :)

(I saw this idea somewhere and I liked it, but I can't remember who it was!)

I pointed out that Republicans can pass whatever they want, and are trying to raise taxes NOW.

R: Sure, they're doing it now on their own terms before the Democrats do it anyway in 2 years.

Watching the Republicans of Congress do the things Republicans have long accused the Democrats of wanting to do, I'm so confused.

The deep state they warned about? I'm starting to suspect it is them.

Yes. The answer to this is always yes.
