But 5G doesn't give you cancer. It won't make you sick. And...god, I am getting stupider just thinking about typing this, coronavirus is not a false-flag op to disguise the illnesses that 5G is secretly creating.

You control your #privacy through your choices.

in the future, basically all websites will be full of unblockable ads and/or implemented entirely in ultra-fucked webassembly/opengl, and the tech-savvy will browse the web entirely through cat & mouse proxy servers running headless browsers to OCR the inaccessible content back into old-fashioned normal HTML and illegally redistribute it through peer-to-peer networks

@myshanks Blender? Not it's primary application domain, but it does have some powerful editing capabilities.

I've got to write 8 questions for a (virtual) pub quiz. It's tricky to make them hard enough so people can guess them, but not too hard that they're impossible.
