Canadian Politics (Thread) Show more
So my host has been doing some analysis over the last couple days about the direction in which Canada is headed politically. I thought I’d summarize here because she made some interesting observations that stemmed from my studying authoritarianism and white power when I was host.

To everyone who donated or boosted our request for financial help last week, from the very bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. Because of you all our rent payment didn't bounce and we will be able to buy train tickets to get to work next week. I've been personally overwhelmed by the response. I'm seriously moved beyond words. Thank you all so much. You're all beautiful. - Ultraviolet and The Nebula system
Please boost this as widely as possible in the hopes that everyone who donated can see it

We won’t be able to make our rent on June 1 because we don’t receive our next check until June 6 (we’re an English teacher in Germany but are not yet eligible for benefits). Our bank account is currently overdrafted and we‘ll be short 300€ ( 451.63 CDN / 335.93 USD) for rent.
If you can’t help out with rent, donations for food and travel would be great. All we’ve eaten this month are tuna, rice, eggs, and toast. Boosts welcome.

Some cops go to pride to farm PR and some do it to make lists. They're both on the same team and these things happen in parallel.

Hey I'm Lumb and I've got a spare bedroom in southeast Portland. It's off 105th and Stark about a block away from the 102nd ave blue line max.
I'm looking for a roomie to move in basically ASAP cuz I'm not able to cover rent on my own right now.
I'm just gonna ask $550 for rent, electric, water, sewer, garbage, and internet all together per month, which is about a third of the total cost of it all right now.
Theres a washer and dryer in the apartment, and when it gets hotter I've got a window mounted AC I'll put up in the living room.
Basically my whole life is work right now, and I work graveyard and sleep in the days so itll be kinda like having the place to yourself most of the time, I just need somebody I can trust with my doggo (90 lbsl while I'm out all night. Hes friendly as heck too, but smaller pets might not be a good idea cuz of his enthusiasm and energy as hes still basically a puppy.
Anyway, feel free to DM me if ya got questions or wanna come by and have a looksee.

Some good examples of common styles of sms phishing. It's important everyone knows how these work because everyone is likely to get some. I know I do.
4 Common Phishing Lies Exposed https://securityboulevard.com/2019/04/4-common-phishing-lies-exposed/
I fired up GHCi (Haskell interactive REPL) the other day and couldn't quit. Neither 'quit' nor 'exit' nor 'q' nor ESC worked.
Then I realized, as a vim user, I know the dark arts.
"No way," I thought.
I type ':' and I shudder. I can feel reality begin to flee away from my periphery as the Cthulhu-call echoes within my skull.
Next I hit 'q', terrifying color and noise abound! "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah-nagl fhtagn -"
I quickly mash 'Enter'. Unnerving silence.
