Funny how Gab, Gettr, Parler and Truth Social were founded as alternatives because of Twitter’s perceived liberal bias. Now they have faced an identity crisis!

Olkiluoto 3, Finland’s own Sagrada Família and Star Citizen. It was really frustrating to read news about the plant getting delayed year by year. Especially during winter it felt like moving the goalposts, there always were some kind of “technical problems” with getting the plant deployed. I’m glad that it’s over, and so is getting gas from Russia.

But he has perhaps learned how to dupe a certain portion of gullible people by promising free speech absolutism.

Musk has learned the hard way that “free speech absolutism” doesn’t work in the real world.

The mouse looks really cumbersone.

I have been dreaming of making a sleeper PC inside the original iMac case.

Extreme - "Banshee" (Official Music Video)
I had hard time picking one among the new Extreme songs from their upcoming album, but this is ballsy and flamboyant, starting from how the band members dress.

Nice to see multiple balls rolling with Twitter’s demise. Tech companies leave Twitter and the media (at least public broadcasters) start leaving Twitter.

The plot also thickens! Elon Musk threatens to sue Microsoft over Twitter data

I’ve had the flu before, and it was no biggie.

COVID is a relatively new virus, and its’ full effects are not even known. It spreads more easily than the flu, has killed a lot more people in a shorter time frame and has increased hospital load a lot. Yes, COVID might have been mild for you but not for all people. What about the elderly, immunocompromised, diabetics and other risk groups? Even otherwise people may have been wrecked by COVID.

The Flu vs COVID-19

The recovery rate is so high

Oh, the “99,9 % people recover” argument? Recovering and not dying doesn’t mean that COVID isn’t dangerous. Ever heard of long COVID?

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (opens in new tab) (CDC), common symptoms of long COVID include:

  • Tiredness or fatigue
  • Post-exertional malaise (symptoms that get worse after physical or mental effort)
  • Fever
  • Cardiorespiratory problems, such as cough and heart palpitations
  • Neurological symptoms, such as memory loss and sleep problems
  • Digestive symptoms, such as abdominal pain and diarrhea
  • Muscle and joint pain

most people only experience mild symptoms, if any

Even mild COVID linked to brain damage, scans show. Of course further studies are needed as this is only one study.

You are ignorant on so many levels, enough for me.

At last! Turkey and Hungary ratified the membership. Also this long saga regarding Finland’s NATO membership comes to a close.

Garlic has several health benefits, such as boosting immunity and being nature’s nutritious own antibiotic and antioxidant. This isn’t of course 100 % confirmed, but eating garlic should work best when eaten on an empty stomach, it should be good for the gut.

Eating a clove of garlic on an empty stomach every morning and cold showers.

According to my understanding, the instances to be listed at join-lemmy are collected with a crawler. The crawler seems to have had problems, and this makes me curious. I am not suspecting anything like my instance not being fit for being listed there.

Sopuli also runs on a VPS of similar specs with Ubuntu, and again a Linux distribution doesn’t really matter.

This article where a NY Times columnist has a discussion with Bing gets really disturbing at points.

[Bing writes a list of even more destructive fantasies, including manufacturing a deadly virus, making people argue with other people until they kill each other, and stealing nuclear codes. Then the safety override is triggered and the following message appears.]

Sorry, I don’t have enough knowledge to talk about this. You can learn more on

According to my understarding, it’s just because of the crawler.
