Maybe it's just a midwest thing but I still get big piles of unwanted ads in the mail sometimes on a daily basis. Just remember your ancestors used the sears catalogue to wipe. You can do the same. Just, for the love of all that is good don't try to flush the used ads. Otherwise this... https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/16/uks-sewage-system-in-danger-of-gridlock-from-toilet-paper-substitutes-coronavirus #coronavirus
You know all this horrible fracking shit we're doing cause we ran out of crude oil some time ago here? Those fracking companies all live on borrowed money. The banks lent them cause selling oil is a sure bet. It has a historically stable price.
Well now oil's gone to shit, and the fracking companies can't sell anything worth a damn. Once they default, they'll take the banks with them.
The banking sector will collapse the second time this decade and ask for a bailout.
What happens next? Hell if I know.
I see people keep referencing the 1918 Spanish flu. Is this really worth comparing? We live in a wildly different world full of virus destroying cleaners, plastics, medical science and hygiene awareness that just didn't exist at that time. Seems like comparison to bird flu or SARS is probably more apt right? #showerthoughts
Not sure why there's no update about this on Masto but @PINE64 tweeted on the bird site about a PinePhone distro hitting 10 hours modem on. https://twitter.com/thepine64/status/1237422385172799488?s=20 That's pretty damn exciting! #pinephone #linux

Windows continues to slowly(?) go to complete shit. http://www.techradar.com/news/the-latest-windows-10-update-is-so-broken-even-microsoft-thinks-you-should-uninstall-it Pretty sure is the 4th or 5th update in a row that's breaking things immediately. So far none of my friends using Windows have budged. What is it going to take to get people to go Linux? #linux
Special Naval Landing Forces
I'm looking over the first three Ratchet & Clank games for the Sony PS2. There's something special about them and they're important to me. So, it's nice to have a little retrospect.
So. Much. This. Every time I go to the grocery I can't park as close as I'd prefer because no less than 3 assholes who don't know the size of their own monsters have pulled so far past the divider line I can't fit my regular size car in the opposite space.
This is exactly the opposite thing people should be doing when it's of paramount importance that we unfuck the environment.
SUVs and Pickup Trucks Are Now Too Big For Our Already Gigantic Garages - VICE
https://learn.adafruit.com/turning-your-raspberry-pi-zero-into-a-usb-gadget/ Apparently it's called USB Gadget.
I'm thinking some kind of SBC that can do gigabit and USB 3.1 at least if not 3.2. haven't really searched to see if any SBCs have 3.2 yet.
