Free advice to dudes and dude-presenting folks: don't follow-and-DM ladies and lady-presenting folks with yer zero-post account. You gotta make some public posts (yes, even if it feels like no one is listening to you yet) to show you're a real human being. Then you participate in a *public* conversation. Then maybe you can DM.
(j/k never DM)
uspol, FB, Nazis, saying the quiet part loud.
"Right-wing populism is always more engaging," [...] the content speaks to "an incredibly strong, primitive emotion" by touching on such topics as "nation, protection, the other, anger, fear."
"That was there in the 30's. That's not invented by social media — you just see those reflexes mirrored in social media..."
Is that... did that FB exec just say "sure, we'd have pushed Nazism to make a buck then too"?

A more correct fix is here: https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/450200/xdg-open-on-debian-9-fails-to-open-browser
but apparently I didn't use the right keywords to find it the first time.
AHAHAHAHA the open_lxde subroutine just... doesn't open a browser. So if you comment it out and replace it with the open_generic call, it works. IT WORKS
this has bugged me ever since I upgraded to Deb10.
(Debian 10, LXDE desktop, update-alternatives are set, $BROWSER is set, Chrome is default browser but it also happened when I used Firefox (hmm, I wonder if Firefox has fixed that bug yet?))
I love Linux on the desktop with ONE exception: links in stuff like the Slack and Discord apps try to open all links as "/home/silver/https..." so I have to manually copy the link into the browser.
I'm not even sure what it's trying to do. I mean, it's not launching the browser, it's trying to open a file on my drive. Why?!
tfw listening to a podcast about the Kansas Legislative War kinda makes me feel... better? https://www.kshs.org/kansapedia/legislative-war/12174

At some point it wandered back to the shrubby corner we call the "thicket," and I startled it out of there just now when I went to refill the bird bath. Soon as it heard the water running it froze, and it was racing back to the thicket before I was even inside the sliding glass door. Shouldn't be too long before it decides it's safe to get a drink, but I'm not camping by the window to wait.
(It's lying in the moss under those trees directly past the birdbath, chewing its cud.)
The screens on that window roll up, and I spooked it because they're spring-loaded (and olllld) and there's no quiet way to unlatch them. It took off to another part of our yard where I couldn't readily take its picture any more.
If you haven't seen older ones, start at the beginning because they definitely escalate.
(yeah, they're all awful platforms, hold your nose and choose one though IG doesn't thread past years and Twitter has DMCA'd the 2017 one 😠)
It used to look like this, so converting it to "pinwheel" crossings was... an improvement? I can't actually tell.
