@nat a country can do little wrong when they actually helped our queen give birth to an actual Dutch princess in a hospital in Canada without making the baby a Canadian

Also in school I don't remember learning a lot about Canada. Heard about the native Americans being killed but not about the First Nation people for example. So they might indeed be really good at covering stuff up

@AaronTheIssueGuy like when they say 'colour' for some stupid reason, where did the u come from, I thought this was America™

@AaronTheIssueGuy everyone knows the internet is made by Americans, for Americans and there are only Americans here that speak American and of course the entire internet is interested and therefore overflowing with american news and politics

@sotolf might just be behaviour on the internet because there's lots of chill people around here. Pretty much everywhere I think

@nat well they are right about being grateful, I still remember a slightly creepy story about a Canadian Jeep having crashed in the water in the war, and when the weather is bad they said you could still see the headlights. Also NL still sends tullips to Canada every year as a thank you I believe

These days it's probably a good idea to say you're Canadian so we know you're not an American because of recent politics

@sotolf haha yeah Americans tend to be more proud of their 'heritage' than people actually living in the old world. Every mention of The Netherlands is followed by a massive amount of 'GEKOLONISEERD' comments

@sotolf nah doesn't appear to be, but it is true for some people. I'm really just glad the starterpack doesn't include me because the Dutch can be pretty obnoxious on the internet

Yeah sex is good, but have you tried rebooting your entire self-hosting setup and having it go smoothly?

Holy shit, America, what is wrong with you?...

"Between 2019 and the first half of 2020, life expectancy decreased 2.7 years for Black people, to 72. It dropped 1.9 years for Hispanics, to 79.9, and 0.8 years for white people, to 78."

@zimza well they're right across the street from me at the moment so that'll be fun

I am all for solar power and using electricity instead of gas or coal but can we not pretend this dude is literally god?

There's some company installing solar on the house next-door and on the van, under their logo, it says 'in Elon we trust' and it just makes me sick

ah yes, February 18th. The time of year when bugs come into the house that will not end until January 10th because apparently -10 degrees has not killed these stupid creatures
