Well, it's not evil if you're a white nationalist. To every ethnonationalist the expulsion of The Other is the ultimate good. We've seen it in every state where such is the dominant ideology.

Interesting technology, sounds like PFC on steroids

Aside: holy hell vox.com's design is obnoxious

But what if by baking the cake five innocent people are killed? The baker is also an evil demon and the customer is the owner of an arms manufacturing company that sells tanks to child soldiers.

    Herman noted that the hole has grown larger by the day. The divot appeared to be cordoned off by police tape and cones.

Please grow faster, comrade sinkhole

More evidence that people who take evopsych seriously are full of crap

This is one of the reason McD:s have cameras - not just in case of robbery, but also if workers decide to redistribute some of that food

Because he's an antifeminist, and there's nothing sad young men like more than blaming their problems on women

    Help us Obi-wan Mueller, you're our only hope

Isn't he one of the guys that lied you into the iraq war? I find this snoop cuddling quite worrying

This is actually a pretty nice paper

It's almost as if huge sites where the admins have no connection with their users is a bad thing

I'd rather laws like this don't have to get passed. Unfortunately we can't have nice things

Uuh, making site operators liable for what their users do is actually good. That U.S. admins can throw their hands up in the air when contronted with abusive user behavior is a cancer upon the Web

"Before crime is committed" is a funny way of saying "innocent". Western politicians will no doubt act like they think these are grave injustices, while simultaneously pushing for similar systems in the EU

I went into the article expecting something about mental health, and memes as a way of dealing with crippling depression. Instead I got someone overthinking stale memes with the usual boomer blasting thrown in

I mean me too thanks

I've heard of MaidSafe before, and it was not good things. And of course there's a bit about cryptocurrencies

Core dump of exciting decentralized things:

OStatus and ActivityPub: GNU Social, postActiv, Mastodon, PeerTube


The return of static Tor-friendly webpages and services
