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.

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). has tons of crowd sourced instructions and how-to videos.

This came on the radio yesterday, like it has pretty much everyday for almost 20 years, but I got an unusually strong hit of 90's nostalgia from it. I remembered hearing it for the first time at an H&M records store while on vacation in downtown Chicago, playing over the PA. I realized I knew almost all the words, but had never really payed any attention to them at all.

Screamin' Jay Hawkins — I Put a Spell on You by exPFCwintergreen in music

[–]DrStrangelove 2 insightful - 1 funny2 insightful - 0 funny3 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

Fun Facts: Hawkins and his band got black-out drunk while recording the original version of the song, which was subsequently banned from radio airplay for being too raw and overtly sexual (for 1950's America). It was later covered (often making the billboard top 100) by Nina Simone, Credence Clearwater Revival, Marilyn Manson, and sampled by Notorious BIG and LL Cool J among others. "I Put a Spell on You" is currently used as theme music for a number of Disney attractions.
