After Columbine over 10,000 school police officers were hired just in case a school shooting happened. Two decades later, they haven't stopped a *single* school shooting. Instead they've arrested over 1 millions kids, mostly students of color, for routine behavior violations.

There are trees alive that are older than the police as an institution. It's not hard to imagine abolition if you want to.

Das Bundesamt hat die Liste mit hunderten potentiellen #CumEx-Verdächtigen erst im Juni 2020 an die Strafverfolger geschickt. 10 Jahre, nachdem das Dokument angelegt wurde. #CumExListe tagesschau.de/cum-ex-135.html

Intellectual Property has worse faces than copyright on art - Patents.

Especially pharmaceutical patents.

They are making molecules and natural numbers illegal for people to use. It's so utterly insane that the scientist in me can't even begin to...

it's so fucking wild to me that people who don't work for a multinational corporation think that copyright law protects them at all. like no independent artist has the resources to *actually* go after copyright infringement. copyright is mere security theater for "intellectual property," a phrase so cursed i cannot believe we have normalized it

‎ Classless society in ancient cities
‎They found the largest and oldest city to date in America, which was in fact a classless society
‎More and more evidence accumulates proving technological civilization started as a classless society
Rather than the classical account/tale of civilization starting from a state

Who designed these SpaceX uniforms?

They look like baddies from a PS2 game you bought for $4.99 back in the day, but then never really played because it was garbage.

asking for help to get away from an abusive living situation, boosts needed 

does anyone nearby (i'm in riverside county, in southern california) have a place i could stay in the near future? like, a couch i could sleep on? not yet, but it looks like things are gonna go to shit pretty soon no matter what i do, so it'd be nice to have an escape plan ready. my parents have been incredibly abusive since i moved back in with them, especially since they found out i was trans. today they went into my backpack and took all my hormones, and that's only the tip of the iceberg of the bullshit they've put me through. at the end of next month they wanna take me to mexico and i wanna be gone before then. please help.

@vfrmedia @vantablack I think the fediverse will survive whatever declarations The Orange Menace makes, but it's worth keeping an eye on what happens with section 230. Worst case: some US based instances might need to host from the EU or elsewhere.

Longer term, admins should also be thinking about hosting on onion addresses, but remaining on the clearnet if at all possible should be a primary aim due to accessibility.

If you're working from home, your boss can't stop you from wearing a lab-coat and safety goggles while cackling and loudly ranting that nobody can stop your master plan!

I’m pretty sure “my next laptop” is going to be a desktop… for the first time in about 20 years, I think.

@aral been carrying around that same thought for a while myself.

It stays in one place. It doesn't follow me around the house. I like that.

Also, lots more raw power usually :)

@roeppel Same here. Hoping that there is a new wave following this whole censorship-fact-checking-fake-outrage bullshit going on between Donald and Jack over at US-Reality-TV right now...

OMG, this is finally starting to roll and now I have to go on a 4 hour call with representatives from another government to talk climate change deals... Wish me luck and see y'all later!!!

@roeppel The mastodon.social server has some rules. But the most important one is that you (fairly easily) set up your own Mastodon instance in your own basement and decide on your own rules.

Mastodon is the protocol that allows the servers to interact, .social is this particular place that is very welcoming to strangers.

Most servers require some verifications, some dont accept new members.

Server run by the main developers of the project 🐘 It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
