re: Capitalism Doesn't Work: The Sequel
@xenophora You know why they want "everyone" to "code"?
Because then they can pay even less for skilled labor.
It's the same reason they're pushing bad coding practices and trying to kill off languages that require real skill.
Writing in C is 'hard' so C must be banned, instead use this language WE came up so we can control even more of society.
@diodelass here at the w3 consortium we’re hiring a Guardian of the Scroll. This role involves flying around the world to headquarters of popular web companies whose websites hijack scroll behaviour, and hitting their management with a comically oversized squeaky rubber hammer until they cease.
"why are you always stuck in your screen instead of engaging the people around you?"
pro tip from an old cat who's been dealing with people complaining about preferring electronic communications to face-to-face communications for decades:
the next time someone gives you grief for your screen time, show them how you're having three separate conversations with the same group of people without anyone losing track of any of the three subjects and then ask them to replicate that standing in a group of four people at the same rate of conversation as the online group.
the only times I've ever seen a group pull it off face-to-face was when the group originally formed their bonds electronically and honed their group communication style over an extended period.
your mileage my vary.
cheap low-effort rice cooker meals
Rice cooker meals are amazing:
Oil, 1 cup grain, 2 cups water, 3-6 eggs or canned/cooked beans, canned/frozen vegetables, salt, seasonings
If eggs: Stir the eggs in and turn on. Set timer for 10 minutes, scrap the bottom of cooker with a plastic spatula; repeat once. (If your rice cooker turns itself off before the timer, go ahead and stir and turn back on, and reset the timer.) After a couple stirs, it should be fine cooking as normal.
