I fear the type of magic we programmers employ has warped us.
The first thing we learn, in speaking to the machines, is that every syntactic detail matters. A misplaced semicolon is hell. A stray parenthesis can kill your code.
The second thing we learn, is that names are free parameters, to the computer meaningless. Call it Bob, call it Index, so long as you always call it the same thing. Call an integer StringOfLetters and it will be an integer all the same.
It is no wonder a coarse branch of internet 'humor' consistents in claiming all the ways humans ascribe meaning to words are a weakness they should be mocked for, and doing so in ritualized syntactic formats.
Auf dem Weg zur Stadt die es nicht gibt. Freue mich auf die Lesung heute Abend im historischen Saal der VHS #Bielefeld. Der Eintritt ist frei - kommt vorbei 🤗https://www.vhs-bielefeld.de/programm/kurs/Die+Daten+die+ich+rief/nr/1911054E8/bereich/details/
Manche Läden reduzieren den Preis der Ostersüßwaren und verkaufen sie noch. Edeka-Filianen hingegen hassen Lebensmittel und ihre Kund_innen.
Müll bei Edeka. Hunderte Schokohasen. 😥
more talks about the dreaded toxic callout culture of twitter Show more
so, what am i saying?
if someone isn't willing to provide proof upfront of their claims that someone's a pedo, rapist, etc., they're bullshitting you.
tell them to provide proof outside of screenshots, e.g. archives of twitter posts or whatever
if they can't provide their proof, then it is highly likely they're bullshitting.
also, lest we forget, context is highly important. chat logs can have whole different meanings with one message being omitted.
callout culture is toxic. do your best to do research before promoting someone else's callout.

"kids are on their phones too much and don't connect with other kids" well maybe if literally every space in this country wasn't dominated after shitty chain store after shitty chain store and the environment was fucking destroyed because you couldn't transition to a post oil world and maybe if you didn't force kids to learn eight hours a day because adults work eight hours a day because capitalists want to suck all the money they can out of workers maybe I wouldn't be on my phone all the fucking time
