The dying gasps of NY Public Library Social Media
  • Do you think that company owners want to pay more or less for employees?

    Do you think you would pay more or less for an employee that doesn't have any other good options for a job?

    What is the best way to expand your job options?

    Companies and politicians are absolutely incentivized to keep a good portion of the populace stupid. Critical thinking and education are detrimental to both, except where you provide some service that requires it.

  • Happy Juneteenth everyone!
  • Southern food is great because Southern white people have a different set of culinary influences than northern white people. I don't know what that influence might be, but it must've been huge.

  • xkcd #2948: Electric vs Gas
  • It's exactly this. Convenience. We've become accustomed to how convenient it is and don't want to be put out.

    On the other hand, it's super convenient to never go to a gas station again, and to wake up to a full tank. So if you drive less than 60 miles a day, and have acess to another car for long trips, an electric is even more convenient.

  • If Trump Wins
  • "37.7% of Americans aged 25 and older had a bachelor's degree or higher in 2022"

    Highschool gives you just enough education to be a good factory worker. That's what it was designed for, and we can't expect more than that.

    That isn't to say that the other 62% are stupid. Far from it. And maybe some had the free time and money to get education outside of a university. But at least half of Americans never got past the 101 version of anything.

  • Label maker for home use

    I'm looking for an inexpensive label maker that can print small labels. I need to label various things around my house for my sanity (outlet/breaker mapping, coax endpoint mapping, etc).

    I was going to buy a NIIMBOT D110, but then I saw in their FAQ that they put an IC (chip) into their labels and the printer won't print if it can't sense it. I really don't want to support a company that DRMs their consumables, if I can help it.

    Can anyone recommend a good, small, inexpensive label maker? Preferably one that doesn't have sketchy DRM embedded.

    Un-wired Robotic lawn mower

    I've got about 1/4 acre with some odd shapes and walkways. I'm looking to invest in a robotic mower, but the boundary wire ones don't seem to work with my layout. It doesn't need to have clean mow lines or anything, I just want my grass to be shorter.

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a non-wired robot mower? Preferably one that integrates with HA, but that's not required.

    If you do, what are the pros/cons of the unit?

    Are avid 2A supporters angry because of the lead from bullets?

    I was reading about how the EU is thinking of reducing the lead used in ammunition because it's polluting the environment. I wonder if regular lead exposure at the firing range is addling people's brains.

    exercise for us?

    Exercise is hitting. My brain gives up way before my body does. Even when I try and listen to music or watch shows while exercising, I just can't keep at it.

    Has anyone found an ADHD friendly way to exercise?

    Meme or reality?

    I know it was a thing on reddit, but how does everyone feel about peeing on your compost? Apparently it really helps, but I've never brought myself to do it.

    lemmy and jerboa source

    Has anyone created their own instance and modified it? How about the same for the Android client? There are some features I'm desperately missing and I'm not against DIY.
