US spent 20 billion on air conditioning for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan which is a billion more than NASA’s budget. This tells you everything you need to know about America. huffpost.com/entry/air-conditi

I hope it’s worth it, #cryptobros. Hint: it isn’t. You’re just ignoring everything for your personal gain that will fail to materialise, IMHO. “Bitcoin power plant is turning a 12,000-year-old glacial lake into a hot tub” arstechnica.com/tech-policy/20

I keep thinking that certain people would view statue-toppling as an acceptable event if it happened centuries ago, and as an act of vandalism if it happened yesterday.

This approach is certainly explained by white discomfort, sure, but it is also influenced by the idea that public spaces should be preserved in their current state forever, or with minimal changes orchestrated in a top-down manner. A sort of urban immobilism, due to the idea that history is over and no longer in the making.

M'aiq met an Orc once, whose friends called her "Smashy-smashy." M'aiq isn't sure it was meant as a compliment, but it was accurate.

Complains about environmental impact of technologies they don't use, advertises a proof-of-work blockchain on their profile.

I went back the that Factorio-dev thread and despite a de-escalation intervention by a very patient moderator the complete moron keeps digging and has reached the Freeze Peach sediment layer

The live broadcast of Denmark vs Belgium on RTBF is *almost* live: I got the push notification for a goal on the UEFA app almost two seconds before seeing it on the screen

So don't talk to me about proof-of-work vs proof-of-space vs proof-of-bandwidth vs proof-of-stake. It's not what this is about. Energy waste just makes something that is already bad even worse. I don't see any merit in making ponzi schemes more eco-friendly.

Folks raving about #cryptocurrency are not interested in the technology. They are interested in an unregulated financial system allowing them to pull off things that are downright illegal. That's why they are trying to get as many people on board as possible. It's predatory.

One can always trust the French to remove sportsmanship from any sport
