2/2 According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation, but an act of self-love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient.

Thanks @parsonsj for sharing this

esp appreciate this quote from Miya Tokumitsu:

By keeping us focused on ourselves and our individual happiness, [Do What You Love] distracts us from the working conditions of others while validating our own choices and relieving us from obligations to all who labor, whether or not they love it. It is the secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. 1/2

Any recommendations for a link shortener that *won't* track you when you visit the link?

Found but not familiar so no idea how trustworthy it is.

I mean... it's the 21st century, man. Information has never been as more accessible.

If one doesn't know what whiteness is and how it effects us all on a daily basis, it's because they don't want to know.

Folks are asking about the basics of racism and hate not because they want knowledge, but to frustrate the conversation.

It is very easy to learn about the history of whiteness and its effects.

Having a good exchange means doing your own work instead of harassing people for free labor.

PSA: duckduckgo has !-keywords that redirect searches to other sites
!w - wikipedia
!g - if you want to be a heretic
!aur - the AUR lol
!gh - github
!wa - wolfram alpha

so to search wikipedia for the article on crabs you type
!w crab

if you set ddg as yr default search you can jump to literally all of the webbed site searches with minimal keystrokes :blobcat:

Mamba is the new conda

Experimental client for installing conda packages faster.

If it seems weird to you that this bugs me, consider that roughly the same effect, temperature-wise, could be achieved both quicker and with about ⅓ the energy use by swilling some hot water around the mug from the boiler to warm it, popping the teabag in and then filling it direct from the boiler.

Just watched a colleague: 1. Draw of 800ml hot water from the water boiler into the kettle (instantly cooling it from the 98°C it comes out of the boiler to about 94); 2. Bring it back to the boil in the kettle; 3. Pour out 300ml into their non-warmed tea mug; 4. Leave the remaining 500ml in the kettle to go cold. 😖

Being tired is not a badge of honor. It doesn't make you more worthy, it just means you're tired.
