  • But don't you know? The software developers know better than you do what you want. Resistance is futile. Comply citizen. Comply.

  • How many team jerseys do you have? I wanted to get one recently, but prices have become crazy lately
  • I've got every Dunfermline home strip going back to 1986 including this season's which I bought not half an hour ago.

    Also a good number of our away tops and a couple of "European-campaign"strips (with said campaigns each lasting precisely one round of the UEFA Cup in 2004 and 2007!)

    Plus a Scotland top and a few from other teams.

    EDIT - oh and agree about prices. Not sure if you meant new or retro, but some of the old ones I've got are currently available on eBay for £200-300! For a Dunfermline top?!?

  • What other actions were scientists so preoccupied with whether or not they could, that they didn't stop to think if they should?
  • That link doesn't work for me, so incase anyone has the same issue... [Project Orion](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Orion_(nuclear_propulsion\))

    Trick is to add a backslash before the two closing brackets, like this:

  • What is the actual point of a bra?
  • No problem at all - and bullets are just a star and a space, then your text and then the two spaces at the end, and then repeat :-)

  • England - Spain (21:00, Berlin)
  • Southgate's mentality midget tactic of sitting back the moment they equalize is fucking egregious

    There's a really interesting (if a little overblown) piece in The Guardian - basically arguing that England's entire failure can be attributed to (or at least embodied by) one throw in that Kyle Walker took not long after the equaliser. Instead of chucking it into the box, he threw it 40 yards back to Stones, who gave it back to keeper, and England didn't touch the ball in Spain's half again for about 15 minutes.

  • What is the actual point of a bra?
  • I think she wrote the pros and cons as a vertically stacked list, but formatting forces it into a paragraph, unless you add a double space at the end of the line.

    So this:

    Advantages of bras: Look nice (if you're into that look, which many people are) Keep your nipples from chafing Support/containment for larger boobs Keep prudish people from being mad at your nipples Can be worn without a shirt for sports if they cover enough real estate When breastfeeding, help catch/absorb leaks

    Becomes this:

    Advantages of bras:
    Look nice (if you're into that look, which many people are)
    Keep your nipples from chafing
    Support/containment for larger boobs
    Keep prudish people from being mad at your nipples
    Can be worn without a shirt for sports if they cover enough real estate
    When breastfeeding, help catch/absorb leaks

    Or, with the addition of bullet points:

    Advantages of bras:

    • Look nice (if you're into that look, which many people are)
    • Keep your nipples from chafing
    • Support/containment for larger boobs
    • Keep prudish people from being mad at your nipples
    • Can be worn without a shirt for sports if they cover enough real estate
    • When breastfeeding, help catch/absorb leaks
  • Ex Redditors of Lemmy what made you come on over? What happened at Reddit that you made the switch?
  • The API changes. I use Sync, and not being able to use Sync made Reddit more or less unusable for me on my phone. I also fundamentally disagreed with the direction Reddit was going. So, Lemmy it was, and it's great. And now there's Sync for Lemmy, which is even better!

  • Stop. Calling. Everything. AI
  • They don't mind, as long as they can call you Betty.

  • Stop. Calling. Everything. AI
  • "All" superlatives? ;-)

  • Can we get a preference where we can browse 100 pages on one page instead of 10?
  • There used to be (probably still is) a subreddit called Tombstoning that has stuff like this. I wonder if there's a Lemmy equivalent. Will go look.

    EDIT - sadly not as far as I can see.

  • The beginning of the end
  • Correction, most of those haircuts are awesome. The one in the middle... not so much :-)

  • At first I thought an upsidedown flag was Photoshopped in, but here we are
  • Because it'll make look Trump look heroic?

    That was my first thought too, because Trump is a horrible, vicious fuckwit, but now I'm not so sure.

    The photographer's job is to document what happened, and this does that. On a purely aesthetic/journalistic level this is a hell of a photo. I don't think it'd be right to delete it just because of how it might get used later, or by whom.

    I hate, hate, HATE that MAGAs will make this iconic, don't get me wrong. But the photographer captured a major news event, while literally under fire (albeit the shooting had just stopped) and I think that deserves respect and recognition.

  • Advice on whether to get a contracted job or not
  • Nice one, sounds like you're all over it 👍

    Good luck!

  • People younger than 30, what advice would you give to people over 30?
  • Indeed, but this particular sub-thread started with an OP giving advice to older people, and is now older people responding to that comment. These aren't top level comments, so let the conversation go where it may.

  • I can't identify what song this is sampling
  • Oh, gotcha 👍

    I wasn't planning on making them public tbh, but we'll see 😁

  • People younger than 30, what advice would you give to people over 30?
  • As a 40+ person, I strongly agree with my young colleague here.

    Listen to what you want, kids. Enjoy it. And don't let anyone tell you you're wrong about it.

    As Common once put it, "If I don't like it, I don't like it, that don't mean that I'm hatin'."

  • Advice on whether to get a contracted job or not
  • As someone else said, if you back yourself to get something else later then it could be the right move.

    Only thing I'd be concerned about is the idea that they snuck the contract thing in - it would depend exactly what you mean by that, but if they were trying to conceal it from you then that might be a bad sign. If it was just a miscommunication or whatever, then hopefully all good.

    Good luck, whatever you do!

    PS - forgot to say that I quit a permanent job to go freelance and it's been a big improvement in my life. I work from home, make a bit more money, and can be much more flexible. Downside is less income security, and as a result less favourable terms on things like mortgages. Also, I have been lucky that I basically get regular work from a small agency and have done for a number of years, so I rarely need to go hustling for clients.

  • [OC] Lion's Mane Jellyfish
  • Oh, ha, yes, I see it now! For some reason, I saw that as something that was beyond the tank, on the other side.

    Either way, great shot, if be getting that printed and in a frame if it was mine :-)

  • I can't identify what song this is sampling
  • I don't follow you, sorry? 😁

  • RIP Martin Mull

    To Norway: An Apology

    Sorry Norway. Our jammy win in Oslo robbed you of a chance to experience a major tournament. Instead, your place went to a badly organised rabble, with no urgency, no ambition and not even basic ball control.

    You should have been in this tournament, and that disgraceful excuse for a Scotland team should have been languishing in 3rd or 4th. How in god's name did we beat Spain?

    Sorry Norway, you deserved better.

    Scotland qualification scenarios

    Of limited interest, I'm sure, but I spent a bit of time working all this out, and wanted to post it before Scotland go 2 down after 5 minutes tomorrow and render it all moot...

    So.

    If Scotland lose to Hungary, we're out. No ifs, buts, or maybes.

    If we draw then we need at least 2 out of 3 scenarios to happen in order to sneak through:

    • Spain beat Albania AND Italy beat Croatia
    • Turkey beat Czechia AND Portugal beat Georgia
    • Denmark beat Georgia AND England beat Slovenia by 5 or more (I think)

    If Scotland win against Hungary then any 2 (or more) of these scenarios gets us through

    • Spain avoid defeat to Albania (Scotland would finish better than Albania and also better than one of Croatia or Italy, regardless of their result)

    • Netherlands beat Austria (Scotland would be ahead of both Austria and Poland)

    • England avoid defeat to Slovenia (Scotland would be ahead of Slovenia and also at least one of Denmark or Serbia).

    • There's also the possibility that Slovenia hammer England (Scotland could finish better than England on goal difference and also would be ahead of at least one of Denmark or Serbia)

    • Portugal avoid defeat to Georgia (Scotland would be ahead of Georgia and also ahead of one of Turkey or Czechia)

    • Even if Georgia did win, we could beat them on GD, but we'd have to thrash Hungary, so not likely.

    • No draws on match day 3 in group E. Doesn't matter who wins, as long as two teams do.

    • Or, if there are 1 or 2 draws in group E then it comes down to goal difference, so we would have to hammer Hungary, see above.

    And yes, I made a spreadsheet to work all this out... :-)

    Come on Scotland fans, let's get this community up and running in advance of Scotland's forthcoming run to becoming European champions!

    0' - Game has just kicked off, 0-0 15' - Decent start, couple of really good chances already for Hanley and Forrest, both probably should have been buried. 30' - Scotland in control, but can't get a shot on target. HT - Same old Scotland, never scoring... 58' - GOAL! Christie slams it home after getting into a bit of a fankle with Shankland (a shankle? A fankland?) Nice ball in by Robertson too. 85' - GOAL! Adams. I didn't see it, but apparently it was a good one 👍

    Feature suggestion - enable swiping between multiple photos in a post/comment

    Example post: https://lemmy.world/post/14058825

    I've no idea if this is technically possible at all, but on posts like the one above, where multiple images have been added, it would be really handy to be able to swipe between them as if they were in a gallery. At present it's a case of open one, close it, open the next, etc...

    Same for comments, not sure if that would be different than posts.

    Thanks :-)
