Yup, gear can get pretty expensive. I'm just amazed at how far technology has gone where you can get cheap equipment that sounds good.

I was watching Chris Titus Tech this one time and he touted the benefits of Pop! OS in regards of overall ease of use and maintenance and it being optimised for gaming and such(AMDGPU drivers and Vulkan API installed by default). I installed it being the suggestible person I am and was pleasantly surprised. I've had system breakage in the past with Fedora after updating. Debian is great as it uses stable packages and is mostly free of proprietary software but I like having compatibility with different formats out of the box. Ubuntu is alright but I am a bit wary of Canonical. I tried Manjaro and was pleased with it but updating with the newest packages had me worry about breaking my install.

Haven't been on Reddit for more than a year. I reckon there are still a few worthy subs but the constant censorship, manipulation and political bias have turned me off this social engineering site. Kinda like when Digg sold out to corporate interests. No ragrets.

So much for transparency. Probably because said carbon tax hasn't done squat in reducing carbon emissions and is just a cash grab by the Liberals.

From Wikipedia: He left college to move to Israel, where he served in the Israeli Defense Forces as a prison guard during the First Intifada at Ktzi'ot Prison, a prison camp set up to hold arrested Palestinian participants in the uprising. There he met Rafiq Hijazi, a Palestine Liberation Organization leader, college math teacher and devout Muslim from a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip, whom Goldberg describes as "the only Palestinian I could find in Ketziot who understood the moral justification for Zionism". Mossad agent?

That was a reductionist, conflating and chauvinistic piece of shit opinion piece. As if "reality" needs to be moulded by what the media and government shoves down our throats. They present us fabricated truths and cry foul when critical thought enabled individuals deconstruct their narrative. Problem is, the dissenters are few and far between.

You can use more cutting-edge distros like Fedora for the latest software. Your system might not be as stable though. Also, downloading and installing programs from the Web may create library conflicts and break your install.

Quite insightful. That was a chilling read. Those agencies want to manufacture consent for the "greater good". It's scary to think that any questioning and criticism of their intentions or methodologies are viewed as "counterinsurgency". They're narrowing it down to "you're either with me or against me"; shutting out any rational discourse. "New normal" my ass!

Perhaps. It's hard to pinpoint and a precise timeline as to when the first cases emerged hasn't been established. What do you think of the theory that those vaping illnesses reported a few months ago might have actually been COVID-19?

Hopefully, a better, freer platform will come along. Until the authorities demand ISPs to block certain websites that defy and question their established narrative. But yeah, Youtube is shite. I hate that they try to influence my opinions by mentioning that RT is funded by the Russian government for example. Or that they shove a warning and a link to the government's website about the pandemic on any channel exploring and analysing the Covid-19 issue. Minitruth for y'all.

This is straight up assault. Why put the word in quotation marks? The LGBQT rights movement is a farce blown up by the MSM. And this has been going on for decades... We fucking get it! You have the right to live the life you intend to without having to face discrimination, physical or verbal abuse. That doesn't mean you deserve more attention or are more special than anyone else. What about worker and tenant rights? They deserve far more coverage and they affect each and everyone one of us. But nooo! Better focus on divide and conquer strategies. As if the LGBQT movement was a cohesive group to begin with... Just a "Me too" echo chamber.
