I’m gonna side with cops since citizen committee crime and resisted arrest

cops look like they used excessive force but idk they wouldn’t have had to use much force at all if the citizen was compliant

dunno why there are so many of them and they fail to restrain one guy




a big problem is a lot of these incidents involve a citizen resisting arrest

possibly putting out that memo of cooperation could prevent a lot of future incidents

police don’t end up escalating the use of force as much when there is cooperation


it would help the name issue. but idk if we care about lefties reeeing about muh name anyway. but you could pick a “proper” name and do some centrist pandering if you want. We’re kind of “left wing” on some things like antiwar and not caring about drugs being legal (or at least, I thought the left was more in to these things). well I think you know what I mean, the left says “consent is consent” and we just care about people having medical freedom and not having to take pharmjabs unless they want to…


what’s cool about solar though is we can own our own “power plants”


I like noise cancelling headphones, maybe you could put a beanie around them? whenever I bike they don’t fall off or have issues for me

with earbuds, what about something that holds them in place? like I was thinking duct tape as a primitive solution. But do they make straps to fasten them more securely to the ears? or would like a rubber band work?

but truthfully I just like to think and look at nature when I’m outside so I don’t really put music on as much so that’s also an idea. I listen to music at other times instead


yeah nostr sounds good for sure

btw are there any interesting nostr s to check out currently?

i saw someone mention sort.social on bluedwarf

edit: btw I see the redditalternatives comments hating on wolfballs as a name, we do need wolfballs 2 asap with some kind of normie friendly name. maybe they can do different things


sounds expensive and kinda locked down with googled android but otherwise this is a dream

I have seen some ereaders run linux but I didn’t test it yet

the mobilereads forum documents some experiments

there’s also the pinenote from pine64



I have a lot of negative encounters on scored but it’s usually just troll users I think, sorry to hear of the censorship

we could suggest to syzutus dev or devs that they federate somehow (that’s where ruqqus left off or where they said they wanted to go to kinda when the site ended)


it’s a different dev or devs but the ruqqus devs have given approval to it through redirecting to it

yes, I didn’t find a lot of info in the pages when searching for them. Seems the person in charge thinks “free speech” destroyed the site and wants to muffle some of it with a “don’t promote evil” rule. In practice I think a lot of sites operate like this but it’s vague and open to admin abuse.


Is Ruqqus Back With Syzitus.com?

Is Ruqqus Back With Syzitus.com?
Found via redditalternatives subreddit, there have been some forks or reboots before but this one actually redirects from ruqqus.com - so is something actually trying to revive some kind of Ruqqus fork project for real this time? Thoughts? Ruqqus went down in flames and the name became kind of burned and some people said the software wasn't even that great, but on the other hand prior to its collapse a lot of us liked it (some core users from here were there)

I wonder what’s causing issues in seamonkey… I guess someone could open up an issue on github about it? (I assume this applies to other lemmy instances?)

edit: btw I enjoy cheapskatesguide posts


someone made the connection about those monkeys being released story came out, some months before “monkeypox” conveniently appeared on the scene



don’t stress too much, maybe experiment if you can and may the best setup win out


desantis as VP? we aren’t gonna want pence kek


yeah I hate flats too and like to bike recreationally, so I’ve considered this

there are some other projects experimenting with getting rid of flats, like I saw gecko rubber tires - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gecko-rubber-tyres/100-puncture-proof-100-recyclable-bicycle-tyres

tannus seems like the best and most available right now

there are some other “airless” designs but I don’t think they have surpassed tannus yet but are interesting (look up airless tires videos)

there’s also something called “tubeless” which puts like “slime” in the tube instead of it being a tube that might work for you that’s a popular solution between tubes and “airless” like tannus

I also saw a design that put car tires on a bicycle, I thought this might be more resistant to flats but could still get some and would be way heavier but just seemed like an interesting project: https://www.instructables.com/Car-Wheel-Bicycle-the-Learn-to-Weld-Project/

ebikes might be a useful in between for small trips instead of a car or manual bike


trump still seems like the best, I’m kind of indifferent, try desantis but it probably wont be the same


it’s actually amazing how so many things haven’t crashed and the can keeps getting kicked down the road
