  1. It's not that Germany has also its fair share of dumbass politicians *sigh*

    • @adiwan Yeah, how's this Merkel handover going?

      about 13 hours ago in context
    • @scribus I'm not enthused. I wasn't happy with Merkel, at least she tried not to F-up everything. I'm not seeing that the replacement is going to be remotely good. Christian Democrats are here the right wing conservatives, and don't share much with my political ideology. I'm more left-leaning and a Pirate Party voter. At least I can say that I didn't vote for the dumbasses that are in power.

  2. Dramatically redrawing voting district borders after every election is insane.

    • @adiwan That’s the America we’re about to be living in because one particular party spent most of the 2010s building the ultimate gerrymanders, only to have it completely fall apart when the suburbs turned on them. The new legislative maps for the decade are going to have very few competitive districts - you stay on your side, I’ll stay on mine, etc.

    • @zeldatra For a country that celebrates freedom it's so sad that it kicks an essential pillar of democracy, that can give a lot of freedoms, to the ground because a minority is power-hungry and restricts these freedoms for their own gain.

  3. Winter cycling is not as bad as I thought. In Summer I sweat excessively after I come home cycling. It's not the case on colder days, or it is less severe. Only the cold air is hard on my lungs but wearing a mask delays the problems a bit as I re-inhale warmer air.

  4. Renewed calls for the western parts of my county to secede and form a new county because the county has become too blue. Problem is Trump only won the proposed area by 2%. So suppose Biden or Harris narrowly wins it next time. Where does it end? Do we keep splitting off new counties until eventually it’s just two houses along the state line?

  5. Love it when an employee tells me she had requested off for a certain day, AFTER I’m already done with the schedule. I tell her that the request isn’t in the book. She says yeah, she forgot to put it in the book but she still wrote it down on her personal calendar. How am I supposed to know what’s on your calendar?

            • @zeldatra My town's got about three places to cross its titular river. One is a freeway, another turned out to be closed with no warning, and the third had some wantwit who managed to cause an ambulance-worthy crash at a mere 10-15 MPH.

            • @scribus more or less why getting to Maryland from here is such a hassle despite the town literally being on the state line. Should take five minutes. Ends up taking an hour and a half because there are only two bridges across the Potomac.

I haven't seen an interface this godrotten awful since I tried using Gmail. Why does nobody have any clue how people use computers, when we all use them all day every day??

                          • Thought I was getting pulled over today on my drive home from a friend’s house. Pulled to the side, he sped right past me. Wherever he was going, every single cop in the county was also going because I saw about twenty squad cars all heading in the same direction at various points during the drive.

                            • Also a friend and I have been trying to write a script for a live-action comedy film centering around a guy who spends years undercover in a New York crime family, it’s set in the 2020s, and I watching this while thinking about that made me think about how there aren’t that many mafia films set in the modern day, it’s all about the 70s and 80s and stuff, The Sopranos is probably as modern as it gets. Would be interesting to explore how the mob operates in the internet age and in a post-9/11 world. Frank Cali was assassinated by a QAnon supporter. That’s insane. The boss of the Gambino crime family, who ran the show for years, got taken out by some guy who thought Trump wanted him to because he was told so on 4Chan. Not gonna see that kiwi in Goodfellas.
