@cbowdon Yup, and add to that the evolutionary still deeply engrined desire of the human body to put on reserves for bad times, something western societies definitely no longer need to do. This instinct adds to the craving. I found that supplementing sugar with Stebia actually works very well for me, reducing callory intake by a lot. :)

We made waffles with a THIRD of the sugar in the recipe and the kids are absolutely bouncing. I shudder to think what carnage we’d be seeing if it was the full amount.
Speculating a bit, this sugar excess is probably a result of the free (read: under-regulated) market. Food corps are incentivised towards taste over health (because you can fool people with claims of “low fat” etc. but you can’t fool the tongue) and so add sugar, conditioning consumers to crave sugary sweetness, and so on.
@iona yes! This is exactly what’s great about the fediverse
@david_ross aha, thank you
@david_ross completely off topic, but what feeling are you expressing with upside down smiley? I’ve never been sure from context if it’s just a frown or something else

Boris Johnson is publicly insulting a minority (British Muslims) in that same “racist dog whistle” way as Trump. Guess there’s no doubt the reports about him meeting Bannon are true then.
@paul yeah that makes sense. Credit to Mozilla for the transparency- I think they learned a hard lesson with the Mr Robot debacle
@paul I’m normally quite sensitive to privacy infringements, but reading the article it seems like a net increase in privacy (if I read it right Cloudflare is only the default option for the experiment, not forever).
It’s the healthiest social network: friendly, inclusive people and not a “how many followers” contest. The quality of conversations here are the best.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.
#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄
(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
@steckerhalter They’re being melodramatic but there is a kernel of truth: people get a sense of security (in this case false) from it being encrypted
@codesections Avoid like the plague. The download times and flash of fallback font etc. for something that makes an imperceptible difference are not at all worth it in my view
@paul Might just generate a new key now. It’s probably a good exercise to find and revoke all the access for the old key.
uh-oh. Default SSH key encryption is terrible https://latacora.singles/2018/08/03/the-default-openssh.html
Ended the week with a nice feeling of accomplishment: managed to get a hybrid #Clojure and Java app building with boot. (Turned out to be mostly very easy, just had to build a separate jar so that the Java classes could be made available in the REPL.)
The end result works just like before I started rewriting it in Clojure, but with much gnarly code thrown away and huge improvements to the functionality already. Yay!

My son watched “Go Jetters”, featuring the villain “Grandmaster Glitch”. My son is very young and hasn’t heard the word “grandmaster” before, so he just calls him “Bad Grandad”.
