Initiative to ban mass biometric surveillance in EU
European citizens campaign to prohibit biometric mass surveillance practices
This is one of the few posts I put publicly and I ask for a Boost!
If you are from EU or you know EU people, it could be interesting.
This is not an usual random web petition, this is an official ECI (European citizens initiative)
Hey Europeans, there's a European citizens initiative going round right now for universal/unconditional basic income.
The deadline has just been extended to the start of May.
Be cool if you signed it!
The logical (unfortunately) next step: #Bitcoin miners buy old fossil fuel power plants and fire them up again. Le sigh. https://www.nysfocus.com/2021/04/13/new-york-bitcoin-mining-threat/
#Bitcoin runs on green energy, they said ;)
#Bitcoin is decentralised and globally distributed, they said.
They are STILL blindly going down the age bands for vaccinations, opening it now to "everyone over 45" in England
Instead of looking at who is at greater risk, i.e. people in manual/industrial jobs in areas of high infection, they're still giving the limited supply of vaccine to healthy 45-year-olds who can work from home in low infection rate areas
Send the vaccines to the Midlands and North, and give them to the people packing your meat and sending your Amazon orders ffs
its fucked up nowadays, you cant just make a thing. you have to make a running series of that thing, which goes on forever, and has a patreon, a mailing list, a discord channel, an official wiki, a fan wiki, a prima strategy guide, its own cryptocurrency, flag, national anthem, nuclear deterrent, etc
Accents should be celebrated and let to thrive ofc, I get sick of people saying "Not being racist but I couldn't understand their accent, they were from India or something" or whatever. Like fuck off, you'd understand them better if you didn't spend your whole life avoiding these people, I understand what they're saying just fine? If you're new to a language then fair play, stick the subtitles on because it will help, but if it's your first language being spoken try harder damn it
Please remember: functional cookies (login session, shopping carts) do not need user consent. So every time you see one of this oversized cookie banners someone is trying (often through dark patterns) to make you accept the whole tracking and spying as well. Don't be mad at the legislative for creating the need for tracking consent. Be mad at the websites that are trying to stir you up against that law by annoying you with those banners.
Thought capitalism couldn't get worse? Meet the workplace 'spiritual consultants'. Employers have figured out how to exploit society’s crisis of meaning – by turning workplaces into sites of cult-like religious devotion.
The world is a dark comedy.
Back from space with uranium and platinum, this was a successful mission and the shuttle has proven to be quite capable. It should handle well even in high gravity, which is very handy.
I write bugs for a living, pretty cool eh?
