WTF? So this is a "grassroots" pro-censorship movement? I was a little ashamed it took me till 2018 to nuke my reddit account, but now I feel ahead of the curve.

"The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense..." Buckminster Fuller by EndlessSunflowers in WayOfTheBern

[–]DrStrangelove 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

"Fuller used a portmanteau of the words dynamic, maximum, and tension to arrive at the term Dymaxion."

The Dymaxion car and Dymaxion house.

The car had 3 wheels, a top speed of 128mph, and 36mpg fuel efficiency. Plus, it looked like an art-deco rocket ship. The house was a modular, pre-fab, energy efficient tensile structure designed for mass production based on war effort aircraft manufacturing.

Fuller was way ahead of his time and a hero of 20th century innovation in service of humanity. Buckminster is also a great middle name.

FYI, this works like a charm: Nuke Reddit History Addon for Firefox.

Also, the title of that video is hilarious!

Great post! Utopia or Rocko's Basilsk? Or, some combination of both with competing government/corporate AI(s)?

Need Apple/Mac Advice by Sunflower in technology

I'm typing this on an old macbook pro running linux. I'm not aware of face id being required for anything yet, but that is definitely the direction apple (and everyone else) is going. If you are familiar with macOS I would recommend trying out Ubuntu.

It's pretty easy to create a live dvd or make a bootable USB drive and give linux a test drive without making any permanent changes to your computer.

If you decide you really like linux you can install it fully from the live dvd or usb drive.

No need to swap hard drives, but that's pretty easy too. All you need is a phillips head screwdriver (and maybe a torx driver). ifixit.com has tons of crowd sourced instructions and how-to videos.

As far as doom-porn goes, this guys stuff usually has pretty decent production value. At the very least, this video made me realize I haven't been paying enough attention to the current state of affairs in Venezuela. Also, dude might be Batman.

It took seven miles to pull over a Tesla with a seemingly asleep driver by Mnemonic in technology

Oh man, someone should develop a K.I.T.T Tesla upgrade. A red LED strip for the front bumper and a software patch with William Daniels voice for navigation and snarky quips. Aaaaaand nevermind, someone did it 10 years ago.

On to my next million dollar idea: an 80's style PSA to play on the dashboard infotainment center while you're auto-driven off to the precinct.

"So, you're being arrested!"

These are your Miranda Rights, followed by paid advertisements for local attorneys. Your arrest is being recorded & livestreamed in accordance with your automakers' TOS

CO2 levels passed 415 ppm and Reddit declared the world is about to end. Ironically greenhouses keep the ppm at 1500 for optimum plant growing. by Orangutan in environment

Good breakdown, thank you. I was 100% onboard the global warming hysteria train since middle school (mid 90's) until it magically became the only socially acceptable opinion sometime in the last decade or so. I recently made the faux pas of hinting at my growing skepticism to my arm-chair liberal friends/family and might as well have clubbed a baby seal with a plutonium swastika... yet I'm the only one of the bunch who commutes to work on a bicycle.
