Linux that Works and Looks like Windows by Optimus85 in Linux

Tbh, I have grown to like the layout of most linux operating systems and how things are done better than they are on windows, I only like windows for its complete compatibility with most programs without performance loss, that's it.
Why anyone even slightly experienced would want to take all the bad parts of windows (its meh userland and way of doing things) and keep the bad parts of linux still (bad compatibility), is beyond me, by doing this you are essentially just using linux except without most of the benefits of linux.

Well, than its not covered under the "mission" of what I would consider worth backing.
Id pay if it was actually uncensored if I had more money.
But, the actual enforcement of a pyramid of debate and banning of nsfw content is a form of censorship, so, while I do think this site is better than reddit by miles, it is also not on a level I would financially support it either.
If they changed their content policy and I had some more money in the future? Sure, maybe I would.
But until then, even once I get a job, I still do not plan on donating.

Trump signs bill that will regulate airline seat sizes by libertypatriot in news
Not really, you are still free to buy a business class or first class ticket if you want to.
All expanding seat sizes would do is make business and first class the only choices available.
[–]Tortoise 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun - 2 years ago (0 children)
Not necessarily, a big part of why airlines were unaffordable back in the day was because the government regulated a price floor, so to attract customers, airlines just made seats bigger since they could not get cheaper to make it affordable to more people until deregulation happened.
Mandating a minimum seat size, depending on the size, may see a return of unaffordable airline tickets as airlines are forced to scale back economy sized seats most could afford.
This all depends on how the law is written though.

I predict Bitcoin will hit 12,000 at some point within 30 days. by x0x7 in PredictTheFuture
As much as I do own bitcoin so this would benefit me, the part of me that likes the idea of bitcoin being an alternative to FIAT currencies controlled by the elite wishes it would stay at a mostly stable but deflationary price instead of just growing and falling like this.
I liked how it hovered around 9k for around a year basically, it seemed good for its future viability, oh well, it will probably stabilize again though at some point.
I predict that Biden will drop out and the they will appoint a candidate. by Grateful in PredictTheFuture
I mean, sure, she probably has bought herself perhaps an extra year or two with more advanced monitoring than most would get, but I don't think they have any unknown secret treatments for the elite besides the ability to more easily get into unknown untested experimental treatments if need be.
But really, it just comes down to the fact the rich can buy the best healthcare are much more healthcare than an average person (eg, private doctors that can check them weekly), not that they have anything secret.
Again though, the diminishing returns of such things cannot be understated since no secret treatment for the rich exists.
Also; RBG is only 87, and her health issues are on par with someone of that age in the general population. I mean, ya, 87 is old, but it's not really statistically extraordinary either. Im sure there are plenty of 87 year olds in the general population who have less health issues than she does.
I think you are overly optimistic about how much healthcare money can buy. There really is a substantial law of diminishing returns when it comes to healthcare, no amount of money any one person has can guarantee living to 100 even.
If they could just cure anything, do you think Steve Jobs would of died of cancer at the age he did?
Sure, they can pull some tricks like priority organs if they need them, they can get better surgeons, and go to hospitals with higher success rates, but at the end of the day, how much difference does this really make? We are potentially just talking about months here.
There is no cure to being old.

German state bans burqas, niqabs in schools by blackrainbow in GenderCritical
Fair enough, and you should not be running your government based off american opinions just as we should not be running our government off yours.
That being said though, as is the entire internet is filled with people outside of america giving their input on how to run things, so I think its only fair americans can do the same, we just shouls mutually agree we are not going to listen to eachother because America is for the americans and Germany is for the germans.
Thats because a shitty special intrest group called mothers against drunk driving, which was essentially just a ton of prohibitionist karens, demanded the age be raised to 21 in the us.
In the rest of the world, its 18 or maybe 19/20 in some more repressive countries like canada.

That is the right approach, don't push them into it and be a troomer, but also don't discourage children exploring gender in a way that does not involve you shoving pills down their throat or bringing out the snippers the second you catch wind of it happening.
Well, the vast majority of western society considers 18 the adult age.
