monads is just the phd burnout instance. boost this post if youre a phd burnout

shadowbringers starts extremely strong with the sequence where you first arrive on the First, but then pivots into "explore this city while npcs explain in detail to you how its different from the Source" which is kinda dull honestly

I think that not only should the British give back everything they stole, everyone who they stole from should get one thing of Britain's. give India Stonehenge. diasessemble Buckingham Palace brick by brick and put it back together in Kenya. take apart the Cliffs of Dover and put them in Afghanistan. it's only fair.

GRC, note for trans people in the U.K. 

There’s no concept of a “legal name” in the U.K. and you can change your driving license, NHS details, bank cards, and other ID without a Gender Recognition Certificate. Ditto passport, though you’ll need a letter from a doctor. All a GRC is supposed to do is replace your birth certificate for the very few circumstances it’s needed. Employers should never need to see a GRC, and if they ask you should make legal-sounding noises and/or talk to your union.

@stolas This was researched pretty comprehensively here: hillelwayne.com/post/linked-li

tl;dr is that when C and Pascal started becoming popular in the 70s/80s, people started asking about this to gauge if you knew how to juggle pointers. Other popular languages up to that point generally worked at a higher level of abstraction.

The talk version of that (deconstructconf.com/2019/hille) was pretty good. I saw that one in person at DeconstructConf 2019.

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

sorry i just read about how the research used to develop the covid vaccine was known about for decades and is also effective against several other horrific viral epidemics but went unfunded because big pharma didn't see any profit in developing it and now i need to lie down
