ST:DISCO S2E10 

They should have made section 31 Starfleet intelligence up until this point in the series, heavily implied that Georgio is a part of section 31. Then at this point in the series Starfleet intelligence is off their ass, and now the time control boys or whatever they're called are the new bad guys

My girlfriend got me two raktajino mugs for my birthday!!

ST:DISCO S2E8 

Lol tying the TOS pilot in slaps. I like the acknowledgement that there are areas inside the federation basically labeled "Gods hang out here: please don't fuck with them"

Mild Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Spoilers 

Headcannoning Spock to be a totally different character makes this show a lot better.

Like why would there by only 1 vulkin human hybrid?

Watching the video game industry slowly fall apart on Linus tech tips is fascinating. It's collapse computing, today!

return of compelled work AKA slavery in the US 

Anyone who's been paying attention to how laws affect people may already know that slavery is de facto legalized through the prison system.

Well, slavery in the general non-incarcerated population is making a comeback!

Summary: 7 healthcare workers left a hospital to take a better job offer from a different hospital.

Instead of paying them more, or providing any other tangible benefit to these workers, the hospital that they were leaving sued in court for an injunction barring the workers who quit from starting work at the new hospital until their positions at the old hospital had been filled.

Let me spell that out.

A hospital employing at-will workers sued to prevent them from working elsewhere, and was successful.

And now, BNSF is suing in court to prevent their workers from going on strike, arguing that the economic damage would be too severe to allow it.

Put another way.

BNSF is suing in federal court to compel their workers to continue working. This is slavery.

This is the beginning. This isn't a fucking "slippery slope" that "might lead to slavery" this is literally corporations suing in court to be permitted to impose slavery on their workers, and succeeding.

What is our court system for?

What the fuck is any of this for?

My computer is not your billboard 

I don't consent to downloading, executing or viewing your ads. You are not entitled to my time, my attention, my computer.

I don't care how much you want the money. How much you say you need it. If you don't want me freeloading, put a paywall; I might not pay, but I don't object to being denied a webpage. I object to ads.

There are no acceptable or ethical ads. Ads are distractions, annoyances, disruptions. They interfere with people's work, fun, mental health.

Welcome to all the Twitter refugees! 👋

Mastodon and the Fediverse does NOT use NFTs or blockchain or cryptocurrencies. No one is on here trying to get rich, no one is promoting anything.

The Fediverse (which Mastodon is part of) is a federated computer network spread across thousands of independently owned and operated servers. The millions of people on the Fedi can interact with each other regardless of which server they signed up on, because the servers talk to each other through federation.

Federation is a proven and stable way to make a network, it's how telephones and email work for example. It's how social networks should be.

We aren't trying to break anything or compete with anyone. There are no shareholders or venture capitalists. Instead, we work together, donating time or money, and collaborate to make a better social network for its own sake.

Here are some hints and tips for new users:

The real horror story is this boyfriend. He's the absolute worst. A complete idiot in the worst way. I hope a demon eats him. She can do better. Date the demon instead, he's more respectful of her feelings.

Vim is so satisfying to learn because you don't have to install anything new. Like when you learn a new command you can try it instantly.
