For any anime watchers out there, why couldn' anime like now be reproduced in the 90s cause the 90s animes have not eye pleasing animation. So what changed? I means graphics is not a huge factor in 2d.

Every hollywood movie: *Some typing Later* I am in the FBI.
Me: *Some typing Later* Finally found that question on stack overflow.

All my friends are on insta and asking me to be on it multiple times. Me on the other hand knowing the truth and danger of instagram and understanding the underlying dangerous coccaine it is is not it cause the dangers and risk far outweigh the benefits. When will people understand that social media is dangerous and research has proven how much it affetcs teenagers. They are not afraid of their data being taken. But knowing what I know, I know they should. 😓

Everybody here transitioning from twitter. Me on the other hand: I never had twitter. I am a pure bred mastodonian. Because twitter contains “facts” but I want tech and memes.

Man When I didn't have internet, steam deck released, proton got amazing updates and all the linux kde's got new versions. It feels like I will be left out if I don't have internet for a year. Catching up feels like a marathon and being up to date is like a rush. Next thing you know, I will hear linux having desktop marketshare when losing my internet for years. (And yes I can survive without wifi)

Me realising Apple phones are the most constant thing in technology nowadays -_-

But when I uninstall some annoying apps it shows failure -1000.

I met the bane of my existence. I carry the thing that keeps privacy advocates up at night, that strikes fear into the very nature of privacy, that puts a grim reminder everytime you open the app. And I have zero tools to combat it. I am in a location with a redmi 9 ace with no pc and only android devices. It was given to me as a present by a person who I will meet everyday so I have to show that I am using it. But its soo adware garbage. I uninstalled many apps using adb with help of bugjaegar.

Welp going to motherland tomorrow. Wish me luck.

If you were to explain command pallet to an absolute beginner, how would you explain it? Want to see how this goes.

US insurance System. 

The system where your injury decides your insurance plan is BS. You will get worse insurances when you have a chance of higher injuries. Wtf? How is that fair in anyway? (U.S)
2 of the most expensive things: Healthcare and Law.
Two fundamental stuff which just so happens to be soo expensive that even normal people don't want to get involved. Like getting your covid health treatment is soo expensive even with insurance. Imagine without. Paaiiinnnn.

The irony of a propietary cpu not being compatible with propietary DRMs.
