Watch as the Pop Culture Detective completely ruins my favorite movie of all time when I was 12. Thanks for the wake up call, it's so creepy
This gendered sci-fi trope has bothered me for years but didn't have a name, so I gave it one: Born Sexy Yesterday.

Was about to launch a large-scale introspection about why I don't feel an adult at 32, then I remembered I've never had to handle paperwork.

I couldn't from experience, but to me it looks like a mixture of autonomy and responsibility illustrated by a change in life priorities. You can still be silly and playful and childish, but it seems like it comes after more serious endeavors. I don't know!

Maybe you are becoming american. I knew american they was like children enven at the adult age.

Why would you even think that? Does it make you feel better about yourself?

I felt like an old man by the time I was sixteen. I once dated a woman ten years older than me, and her kid still called me grandad.

Until a few years back, I was always looking forward to being older, as I never really fit with people my age. I've never had a rebellious teenager period, for example.

I stopped looking forward because I'm not automatically paired with people my age anymore and because physical decay is looming.

Thomas Willingham 1 day ago
Yeah, I always thought of people my age as being part of a younger generation I don't really understand, but that everyone would catch up with me. When I met Gala (the woman ten years older than me), I was certain that's what it was - just an age thing - and they'd definitely all catch up...but I'm now the age she was then, and I still think of people my age as being part of a younger generation I don't really understand.

There are some sixteen and seventeen year olds I can get on just fine with and respect as equals, and some folk in their sixties I think of as children. I know it's nothing to do with age really, but my brain still insists on organising things that way.

S'abstenir ne fait pas le jeu du FN, mais vous préférez vraiment confier le sort de l'élection au reste des Français ?🤔 #SansMoiLe7Mai

Salut, perso j'irais voter, mais cela reste mon choix. Je fais une assez grande différences entre les 2 camps restant. Je n'ai jamais vu mon père voter, ma mère ira sans doute voter jusqu'à sa mort.

Je suis aussi d'accord sur les non votants qui indique bien qu'il ne sont pour rien dans la montée du fn.

Hypolite Petovan 2 days ago
Ah ben voter reste un choix personnel, garanti par l'anonymat des résultats. N'importe qui prétend le contraire ment effrontément.

En fait, si cela avait était fn vs ump, j'aurais sans doute hésité. Durant Sarkozy, la vie des sans -papier était devenu relativement insoutenable. En dehors du droit humain.

Sinon, oui, bien sur : je peux tout à fait écrire que j'ai voté Mélenchon et en fait avoir voté Macron. Mais non, ni l'un ni l'autre : j'ai voté l'un de ceux qui ont, soit disant, empêché Mélenchon de passer au 2ème tour : j'ai voté en fonction des programmes, selon mes idées, et je n'ai surtout pas voté utile :)

Ah, l'analyse des sondages et des résultats des votes, c'est l'art de parler pour ne rien dire...

Je constate que la puissance des médias est toujours la. Elle influence toujours les gens qui réfléchissent pas la TV. Plus on parle d'une personne, plus elle est connu et on la voit. Plus ils vont voter pour cette personne. Le matracage médiatique de ces 6 derniers mois en faveur de Macron (selon moi le pire des candidats) a donné les résultats qu'on voit aujourd'hui. Il a les médias dans sa poche. Les 5 années vont être dûr. Je suis content de ne pas habiter en France bien qu'ailleur il y a aussi des difficultes.

pas toujours d'accord avec toi @Chris , mais sur ce coup là on est bien d'accord

Shnoulle (F) 1 day ago
Pas faut sur les médias, et dailleurs tout à fait vérifié. Quelles sont les personnes qui sont le plus présentes médiatiquement entre les 11 candidats vs quels sont les 4 premiers candidats.

Cependant : les médias suivent aussi la tendance : plus cette personne à de chance de faire de lé'écoute, plus je l'invite . Cercle vicieux.

Sinon, je ne regarde quasi plus la TV, et j'ai lu partiellement les programmes de quelques candidats qui pouvait recevoir mon vote .



 
I will probably never stop being flabbergasted by employees thinking they would get paid the same gross amount if income taxes disappeared.

This is true as well, but I'd like to dispel the general notion that federal taxes are paying for anything and that US public deficit is a bad thing.

Server blocklist feature added to Friendica


Hi,

following numerous reports about contact request spam from #Mastodon instance pawoo.net and friends.nico, we quickly mobilized to create a server blocklist for #Friendica admins.

It is available on the develop branch as of today, can everyone please test and report back if it works?

Thanks to everybody involved, the reporters as well as developers who made this job incredibly easy for me.

Les employeurs ne sont pas tous des connards ! :D Du moins j'espère ne pas en être un :P

Ouais, c'est une éternelle guerre... ça a commencé doucement... Mais plus ça vas.. plus c'est pénible.

En ce moment on est en négociation pour des assurances collectives.. encore une guerre. Dans mon livre à moi c'est l'entreprise qui paie pour ça avec ses bénéfices... Mais il y a aussi l'option de juste mettre ça en frais sur la fiche de paie de l'employé. Dans les deux cas, on paie moins chers "à la gang" que si l'employé s'en prenait une tout seul...

@gab : en France, culturellement et historiquement, c'était la solidarité des citoyens qui le faisait, avec la Sécurité Sociale (merci le Conseil National de la Résistance en 45), mais petit à petit, le libéralisme tue nos services publiques, et on se fait racketer par les Mutuelles. Perso, j'ai de la chance, ma boite "m'impose"une bonne mutuelle, à fort peu cher. J'aurai tout le même préféré un bon Service Publique ...

Winds of political change: People used to die because leaders cared to much about principles, now they do because leaders don't care enough.

@hypolite would you develop?

Hypolite Petovan 4 days ago
@VictorienVifArgent Sure. From the end of the Second World War to the fall of the Berlin Wall, political ideology was paramount. Americanism (capitalist democracy) and Sovietism (communist totalitarianism) fiercely battled each other, often literally through proxy wars in Latin America, Middle-East and South-East Asia.

After the fall of the wall and the Soviet Union alike, this terrible state of affairs was replaced by all-around oligarchy, where wars would be triggered just by material profit (oil, gas, etc...) sometimes under the guise of false pretenses (second Irak War coming to mind). There aren't any principles, any ideology involved, and the few that are invoked are devoid of any meaning, up to the point where a White House press secretary would use "alternative facts" in an official briefing.

@VictorienVifArgent Test reply, can you confirm receiving it? I sent you another longer one but it doesn't show on Mastodon's thread.



 

GNU Social isn't for me


To replace Facebook in my life, I self-hosted an instance of Diaspora then Friendica (from where I'm writing right now), and I thought I could self-host a GNU Social instance to better communicate with Mastodon accounts.

However, I quickly realized that I wouldn't be able to use it for a simple reason: my timeline was filled with replies to conversations I wasn't a part of. The ratio signal/noise is then extremely low. I've been told it's a feature of the OStatus protocol, which means it won't get fixed anytime soon.

At Friendica we support OStatus but we mitigate the clutter by threading conversations and trying to ignore replies that don't concern us. It doesn't work completely reliably, but for me it already is heaps better than the constant chatter I couldn't make sense of in GNU Social.

I recently killed off my own instance of GNUSocial and enabled the OStatus features on my Friendica instance, and just followed the few people I was following (i.e. Quitter accounts). I felt I didn't really need to run two "servers", Friendica is everything I need.
