I got a pro-disease vaccination scare leaflet in my mail. It listed how many adverse events after covid-19 vaccinations have been reported to the VAERS systems. Note: it did not list how these amounts compare to the base rates of those adverse events.

It's funny how someone can first complain about "deaths while having covid, not deaths from covid!!!" and then flip 180° around and complain that "every death after taking the vaccine is a vaccine death!!!"

My favorite thing is that trollface is now an actual thing on the internet again :troll:

most of those "non-fungible" tokens actually seem extremely fungible

The phrase "in case you need to do a capitalism" is now officially in Animal Crossing. That is all.

the only counterargument NFTbros ever have to anything is "are you sure about that", like come on, don't you even have the balls to just tell me I'm wrong, let alone tell me *why* I'm wrong

@Coffee In Finnish, the month that began today is called "marraskuu", "marras" being an ancient Finnish name for the mythical personification of Death. Meaning we have now entered the month of Death. (I think the name is somehow etymologically linked to the old Latin "mort", although I could be wrong.)

They said I had to turn the clock back an hour at 4 this morning. I've done it 13 times now, how long do I have to keep doing this?

The species is the Saimaa ringed seal (Saimaannorppa), and the song in question is Vanhojapoikia viiksekkäitä by Juha Vainio:

and what I said is recognized by local scientists as true: this song probably single-handedly saved the Saimaa ringed seal from extinction

That time when a guy in Finland made a song about how sad it is that a local animal species is going extinct, the song became a big hit, and it directly led to interest in saving it growing big enough that the species has now recovered and is no longer nearly extinct, merely endangered

2021: microsoft releases a programming AI that is capable of putting a // what the fuck? comment inside the code it produced

Miten meni, noin niinku omasta mielestä?

In my OPL3 escapades, I accidentally soldered the DAC on backwards (rotated 180 degrees). The result was a loud static noise on the output, but the music was clearly audible below that static. How is that possible :thonking:

step 1: twitter

step 3:

March 21, 2006 to September 2021 (ongoing) global "Twitter" incident

You just know that in a few years there will be 9/11 truthers who claim the towers never existed at all

cryptocurrencybros: "man this new decentralized currency lets us finally be free of the control imposed on us by the global banking system!"

also cryptocurrencybros: *because of inefficiency, invents a system layered on top of their decentralized currency, where you delegate your ability to do payments to a node in the network you trust, who then performs actual transactions to other such nodes in bulk at the end of the day*
