cartoon villain levels of anti-Blackness 

"In her discussion of Black students on college campuses in On Violence, Arendt asserts that the majority of Negro students admitted to colleges and universities were admitted without academic qualifications and that within the Black community the Negro’s goal was to lower academic standards (CR 120). For Arendt, lowering academic standards included attempts to create courses in African and African American studies, which she calls “soul courses” (a phrase she borrows from Bayard Rustin), and instruction in languages such as Swahili (177). Arendt describes Swahili as “a nineteenth century kind of no language spoken by the Arab ivory and slave caravans, a hybrid mixture of a Bantu dialect with an enormous vocabulary of Arab borrowings”—using the 1961 Encyclopedia Britannica as her source (192).6 She predicts that “in about five or ten years this ‘education’ in Swahili …, African Literature, and other nonexistent subjects will be interpreted as another trap of the white man to prevent Negroes from acquiring an adequate education” (ibid.)."

-- "Hannah Arendt and the Negro Question"

6. Concerning the description of Swahili as a “no language,” [Anne] Norton retorts, “By this standard, English cannot escape censure, and Arendt’s regard for Yiddish and modern Hebrew becomes almost inexplicable” ([“Heart of Darkness: Africa and African Americans in the Writings of Hannah Arendt,” in Feminist Interpretations of Hannah Arendt, edited by Bonnie Honig], 252).

Shame if people on the Internet were to copy it everywhere.

"Coinbase just signed a deal with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) department to the tune of $1.36 million, for which it will provide ICE with data and analytics around how Americans are buying and spending various cryptocurrencies."

Fediverse-caused tungsten shortage of 2022

I've had my Lenovo X250 laptop for 6.5 years now. It works very well for my needs. That's why I rarely spend time looking into new hardware.

I turn on my PC.

The local wildlife are immediately sterilised by the excessive output from my four exposed nuclear reactors running at a critically risky heat output.

The sound of 10,000 cooling fans deafens the city’s morning traffic as my warehouse of 500 parallel-chained AMD Razer Threadrippers bursts into life, forming the equivalent processing power of 2015 in one room.

Nearby, my cluster of Nvidia 5090 Test Cards begins to warp the local time continuum as they calculate answers man was never meant to know.

Very gently, I open Microsoft Teams.

Instantly, the already deafening noise of fans increases to a murderous wail as they try to keep my equipment at operating temperatures. A nuclear reactors’ fusion catches up with its cooling and explodes destroying the lives of millions. The floor begins to melt away as my processors over clocked ten-fold reach critical mass and descend directly into hell. My Nvidia cluster collapses into a singularity and begins to devour the planet.

Quickly now, I open a text chat, it’s a bit laggy.

The sheer struggle of loading some text destroys the remaining systems. Me and my equipment are deleted from reality by an unknown overseer.

Humanity is not ready for instant messaging

Python 3.10 is a fantastic trap for everyone who uses YAML/Toml to configure CI, because writing an unquoted 3.10 will happily be normalized to 3.1.

⚠️REMINDER: Only download Inkscape from trusted sources and be cautious about emails with links, even if they claim to be from the project. If there's any doubt go to the source. The latest, validated release will always be available for free on our website.

Boosts appreciated.

Tremendous to see these group of people all talking completely across each other, impervious to any exogenous information, well done. 🌳 🔥

Still, I have not found any Indonesian people in this web. Please boost so any Indonesian can follow and meet me.

Teppo Rämä gave a terrific presentation on marine fungi yesterday (he's a mycologist specialising in arctic marine fungi).

I was amazed to learn that there are fungi which parasitise diatoms! There are also marine fungal species which have demonstrated the capacity to degrade polyethylene microplastics.

He shared a slide which showed a massive increase in fungal activity following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill; very interesting from a bioremediation perspective.

I am looking for like-minded people in the fediverse for sharing thoghts, projects and information about woodworking, woodcarving and especially spoon carving. How can I find these people?
Are there any existing groups or servers with these topics?
Retoots / Boosts are appreciated!
