🏀 Pr Anyone get more interesting in learning about the stock market after the whole GME thing (kinda still going on honestly)? I started trading options which has been fun to gamble on it.
👉 LÊo The general failure and ultimate collapse of the Texas power grid should forever be remembered as a failure of unregulated capitalism. For the numerous failures and tragedies broadly attributed to "socialism", I think it is fair to blame this on on capitalism.
🏀 Pr Interesting, i generally agree. capitalism is terrible at planning for the worst case scenario. See also: the pandemic
🐓 Mega Not trying to sound rude or anything, but why do you, personally, like smaller phones? Is it the portability, convenience, or just preference? I personally am fine with phones that are a bit bigger because of my hand size lol
🏀 Pr haha I get that question a ton. my thumb does not reach very far across my hand - when I signal a '4', my thumb barely reaches the gap between my pinky and ring finger. This means for larger phones I can't reach the top left of the screen without maneuvering the phone in a way that increases the likelihood of me dropping my phone :confused_face:
🏒 Lucian Marin The upcoming Sony Xperia Compact (140x68.9x8.9mm) seems big to me. Maybe iPhone 13 mini (131.5x64.2x7.4mm) would come with USB-C charging. I really enjoy the size of my XZ1 Compact (129x65x9.3mm).
🏀 Pr I had to switch to the new iphone mini just because it was the only updated small phone out there. I loved my xperia compact (had the z5c, and the x compact), but they were getting old. finally i switched to the iphone SE 1st gen for a year or so and now i'm on the mini. I hope the mini will start a new trend of small android devices again
🏀 Pr has anyone been following the extradition trial of julian Assange? It's amazing how much of a charade it is: craigmurray.org.uk...
🏀 Pr struggling with focus at work, even though my coworkers and team are very positive and helpful. Feels like I don't do anything really at work, but it has not been noticed yet - but worried that it will be noticed soon enough. I just can't get myself to focus on the tasks at hand because of how ambiguous they can be.
🏒 Lucian Marin So, Apple can build a Touch ID into the 6mm frame of iPad Air. But they can't to the same with the 8mm frame of iPhone for an all-screen design. iPad team needs to design new iPhones.
🏀 Pr interesting, do you think the iphone 12 won't have touchID? I think the ipad air having touch ID means the new iphone will too.
🏀 Pr remarkable.com/sto... anyone gonna pre-order? looks enticing, but not sure i need it?
🗨🐒 Fui Definitely out of my reach. But the product, and the offer, surely looks appealing. Be it as it may, if you're enticed, try first watching/reading reviews of the former version to see if it's just a novelty item or a truly worthwhile tool. Maybe that'll help you make a more informed decision.
đŸ§Ŧ Thomas I wanted to get excited by this, but it's actually pretty big. Almost a sheet of A4 paper. Still lots of lag re-rendering the eink too..
😃đŸ’Ŧ Javier They are caricatures. Poorly drawn. Family Circus Zombies.
🏀 Pr seriously, it's straight out of south park tbh
🗨🐒 Fui That's politics everywhere, at any given time. At that level it's too abstract to be existentially meaningful. So it's always a facade.
🏀 Pr definitely. i wonder how much blame the internet has in the acceleration of the deterioration of meaning in public debate.
Burensasub Agreed. I used to get excited watching them, but now I couldn't bear to watch it for more than a few minutes. It all rings so hollow
🏀 Pr so hollow and so manipulative. it blows my mind that it works
🤔✍ī¸ David How? Through agreement, ignorance, or desensitization.
🏀 Pr I can't stand BS. personally i feel the RNC is straight out of a movie on dystopia, but the DNC has too often just ignored (or actively supressed) the progressive side of the party. I'll be voting for sure, but it's still frustrating
🏀 Pr Watching these RNC and DNC conventions leaves me feeling angry, especially in the aftermath of jacob blake. how can anyone listen to these windbags and not feel a boiling anger?

Diva We only get to see edited highlights and sound bites here in the UK. For the most part, the US election usually dominates our foreign news agenda. It's a shame that this focus does not happen for other countries.
🧐 Nrmn I started playing lasertag regularly with a few friends. This totally counts as workout from a back pain point of view.
🏀 Pr haha nice, that's awesome. I started playing tennis with a friend recently, I don't notice my back pain as much while playing. never played tennis before, so it's been fun learning something new too.
🗨🐒 Fui I have severe back pains from time to time. In my case, that is the sign I have to change my workout habits (it lack of them, to be precise). Once I do that, the pains usually subside. Problem is: I'm not particularly fond of working out, so I'm always on this merry go round of being/not being in pain.
🏀 Pr ugh yeah this week i have not worked out. It's definitely one of those things where, I don't want to work out and make things worse, but I also am sure that it can improve the situation too. I also started PT recently, hoping that will help
🏀 Pr it's been a little while since I've been here. Been dealing with a lot of back spasms between my shoulder blades. really just kills any motivation, productivity, and just drains the life out of me. anyone else deal with any sort of chronic pain?
