Tetiba terfikir, kenapa ek iklan anti dadah dulu mesti tunjuk sama ada penagih style merempat, anak orang kampung atau pun borderline cheap parties?

Padahal orang T20 pun bersepah kot abuse dadah, takde pun iklan fefeeling aesthetic dekat kondo ke apa ke why ek

covid anxiety 

“The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
–George Orwell, 1984

I look around at my friends and my community, and people are getting covid left and right. And they have mild cases and recover and are fine.

I’m still worried about long covid, but I’m starting to feel truly crazy, as if long covid were a conspiracy theory. It’s a very uncomfortable feeling.

I dont inderstand ppl who go “twitter is unhealthy for me. The algorithm hides my friends posts and makes it hard for my art to get seen.” And then they decide to move to INSTAGRAM of all alternatives

Insta hid my friends posts from me for so long that i didnt know some of them had KIDS.

Let me try to demonstrate how a funny error can be poetic. This is a picture shot in a Chinese restaurant of a table vinegar with a hand-written label on its lid. It was supposed to be 醋 (cù, pronounced as tsu with a falling tone, meaning vinegar), however, it was mis-written as 酷 (kù, the character for the loan word “cool”). The two characters share the same left part thingy we call “radical” and they rhyme. You know how people just need to add a bit of 醋 to their food? What about some 酷(ness)?

this person says they lost 80% of their life savings to the terra collapse. some will argue over whether they "deserved" it for making such risky choices.

that doesn't fucking matter. what matters is that people are being lied to and convinced these are "investments".

Went to my dance class last Friday. Instructor was a new one. As she approached me to check attendance, she asked "what's your name" in Mandarin, 叫什么名字. I was surprised for 1 sec then realised it was my Tee with Chinese characters on it that "gave me away". It's really magical, cuz 叫什么名字 isn't something we hear often - It's too formal. But it's a sentence I teach my students on their 1st Mandarin lessons. And there I was, in my first dance class with her, she asked me 叫什么名字 in our mother tongue.

Dropping some random Chinese homophonic pun here.
无宪连任 (wú xiàn lián rèn)
This expression has two parts. The second part 连任 means “to serve for another term”, which in democratic countries equals to “re-elected”, not for us tho.
Pun is in the first part. 无宪 literally means “no constitution” and it sounds exactly the same as 无限 which is the word for “unlimited/ no limitation”. Here you go. To continue in a political office without (giving a sh*t about) the constitution = unlimited continuation.

In Poland, there is a secret network of doctors who help Polish and Ukrainian women in need of abortions. The Polish govt is aware but turns a blind eye because there is a shortage of doctors and it fears backlash from women.

Krystyna Kacpura's advice to U.S. women: Hit the streets and "stay there for as long as you can while you find ways to support each other in the face of reproductive injustice. If you don't, many women will suffer. Many will die."

We actually still live in a place where people still believe in the divine right of kings.

Progress cannot be made until we tackle that

Thank you community packager for making steamtinkerlauncher available in openSUSE Tumbleweed. I haven't gotten any of the games I own modded yet, but that's only because my old RX580 wouldn't be able to support the hi-def texture injections I would use it for.

For now, I am content to see progress made on the Linux front.

It's so much easier to ignore hot takes in Mastodon because I can let them die down the timeline.

A very pleasant design.

I hope people understand that when we talk about censorship we are thinking of different things. While some may think erotic stuff or swear words got censored is annoying, other may get sentenced to 3 years in prison just because they logged on Twitter and reposted only. Whoever trying to use that “all lives got censored/ some westerners too” rubbish to tell me something they think they know so well can f*cough.

The other day I saw a poll asking “what made you stay at mastodon”. Choices were like “my friends are here”, “dunno, I just stayed”, or some specific good aspects of this place. That was rather ironic as my reason which is also most Chinese users’ reason, is not listed. To this English speaking world, it’s beyond imagination for many that people tooting in Mandarin would most likely call themselves “cyber refugee”. Because we had nowhere to go. Because everywhere was censored and we had to flee.

#rstats question 

Hey #rstats people, I am trying to study the link between two variables over time, as in the strength of the regression.
What I expect is that my explaining variable will account for less of the variation of my response variable as time passes.
How would you test for that ? Outside of doing regression for sets of time points and then doing a regression on that, which seems a bit weird.
Let me know if my question is clear !
