I really really want electric powered city buses.

For many reasons, but right now for less pain when riding with a headache

@Canageek i don't think you would want that. i recommend Manjaro, which is Arch-based. it's easy to install and usually everything works easier than it does in Windows.

@Canageek Linux without hardware issues? In what world? Can't even have that with today's Ubuntu.

*sent from an undimmable laptop that occasionally forgets how to wifi*

Linux question: What is today's equivalent of Ubuntu circa 2005? Designed to be My First Linux for someone who wants to get away from Windows and wanted someone else to deal with hardware compatibility and such?

I've followed enough to know that Ubuntu has fallen from grace a bit without built in search and such.

I remember feeling so out of the loop. I thought that when I had money and I could buy my own comics instead of having to rely on my parents, I'd read them all so I'd never feel this loss again.

Later, in my early 20s, when Marvel first launched its Digital Comics Unlimited site, I attempted to do just that.

That's when I learned ... most of these ... just ... weren't very good.

The plot of the comic is that Collossus and Kitty Pryde are kidnapped by Arcade, who believes Doctor Doom is going to be coming to kill him. He wants the two to protect him and says he has an army of robotic clones of the X-men that can help.

Sounds simple enough. But at one point Kitty Pryde says something that left me reeling.

"It's just like all the X-Men are all alive again."

And I'm just staring at the comic thinking ... the X-Men are dead?????

Back in the 90s, my family was going on a long car ride and my dad bought me an X-Men comic to read. I had been a fan of the X-Men cartoon and also collected Marvel trading cards, so I was really excited to have one of the comics for the first time.

But the comic left me very disturbed.

someone on tiktok said "if 'were' (as in werewolf) is the Old English word for 'man' and 'wif' is the Old English word for 'woman', shouldn't a femme werewolf be called a wifwolf?" and now I can't stop thinking about that

I read a review once of a new model of Tesla that had a bug that caused it to slam on the brakes at unpredictable intervals. The reviewer said it was unsafe and undriveable.

And then, according to their metrics, gave it high marks for being comfortable and stylish and having trunk space and affordability and the stereo system. It scored a 7 overall.

Maybe if it exploded into a fireball, it would decline to a 6.5.

Metrics are meant to increase "transparency" and fairness, but they fail spectacularly at both. Ethical investment indexes become a way to hide worker injuries and wage theft. Or carbon that's consumed in unexpected ways, like driving truck around in circles because it's cheaper than warehouse space.

Every metric we have is an abstracted lie. And meta analysis only makes it more lying. And these are the metrics we're trying to use to make the world better and to cut carbon.

Capitalism cannot fix itself.
