It works like: @[email protected]

So @[MyreallyOriginalHandle, Really, like, really, original]@social search for that and you'll find.

Now, I recommend reading at least this: https://hackernoon.com/what-i-wish-i-knew-before-joining-mastodon-7a17e7f12a2b

I don't recall if it explains why giving you a link might be a bigger pain in your [rear end] to figure out how to add me because well... Things work different in the fediverse compared to ONE SERVICE TO RULE THEM ALL and Mastodon is pretty keen in some ways to help with privacy. [Pictures and Video's don't last as you might expect them to].

Shilling is too specific, it's 'marketing' something (like the coolest sub around: /s/Internet).

Dumping toxicity deliberately to give someone/thing a bad reputation is a broader phenomenon than just 'shill' stuff.

Should the "funny" vote be called the "fun" vote? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

I'm for fun change! It's less degrading sounding as funny.

Entertaining is a bit hard to convey in the current emoji and may overlap too much with insightful.

We can even explain it to the Germans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZFwMwQdvQM

I quit twitter because it was fun in the beginning, tweeting from your (now) antique smartphone that you are going to take a shit and various thoughts popping up during lectures, but around 2014-2015 it was an ad infested and mostly dominated by 'influencers' that the fun wasn't there.

I quit facebook/instagram so I could have conversations with people instead of being asked for my facebook, giving it and being scrutinized for my musical tastes and excluded from party invite lists because 'it wouldn't suit me'. (Like PKD said: In 1945 Germany was defeated but the Nazi's won)

This all happened 2014-2015. In the Summer of 2018 I heard about saidit and joined after a day or two clicking around and thinking up a sick handle. I guess about a week, or max a month, later I discovered Mastodon so since then I'm back into (real) social-media without too much personal details.

The best way to 'go around' this is filtering your subscription list at https://saidit.net/subs and when you see it happen in broader category subs and You have the time, refute it.

Keeping the https://saidit.net/static/debatepyramid.jpg in mind, if you can't get further than a contradiction it's probably 'wasted time' anyway in these cases.

Keep it up!

If you do that, you'll end up somewhere outside our solar system, It just makes sure you end up in the same space-time coordinates only a different 'time'. The earth moves, our solar system moves and the milky way moves.

And how fast is the Milky Way Galaxy moving? The speed turns out to be an astounding 1.3 million miles per hour (2.1 million km/hr)!

They are very good... with butterflies... HMMMMMMMMM

EDIT: The Series is called Lexx, Season 4 deals with earth.

There is also a scene where the president is driven to the place JFK was shot and blackmailed into doing stuff because else he would go down pretty easy... (But can't find that one on youtube)

Earth:Final Conflict suits this narrative.

Aliens who 'help' us (humanity) get better but they also have their own agenda and black ops going on.

Political intrigue including presidential rigging of elections and all, but the acting isn't on par with Star trek productions.

Edit: Thanks for making me think of this serie, I still have to watch the last season I just found out about :)

I filled it under 'Alternate History' for a reason.

Made me think about Red Alert 1, 2 and 3.

Also, since 'time' is't a thing and is called space-time usually, means to go back in 'time' you'ls need to have the power and reach to change the whole of existence and showhow filter the 'time-traveling stuff' out.

Star Trek Enterprise deals with the transitional period, political infighting (TNG also has a Federation infight episode as does DS9), other races with 'money', luxury. In Enterprise the family of the navigator are freighter workers etc.

Only in TOS it can be somewhat presumed to be a communist utopia.

One of the main things is, The Federation has (somehow) listened and 'fixed' the critiques on capitalism. For Americans critique on capitalism somehow equals commu/social/Marx-ism(s).

but quite literally not unless the world becomes severely depopulated and some kind of... one world government were to take control and "re-educate" the survivors into a new way of being human.

This happend in the ST universe.. There was the war with Khan, the genetic enhanced humans (TOS, TOS movie, Enterprise and the shitty reboot movie deal with this). There was a Global nuclear war and after that First contact with the Vulcans was made [See the Movie 'First Contact' from the TNG line https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_First_Contact {One of the, if not THE, best Star Trek movie}].

Step up your Trek game!

Addition: The new Star trek (the reboot films and new series) show capitalism milking dead a good idea the wrong way, but somehow people still pay.

Dr Phil Exposes Pedogate On Mainstream Media by TheWebOfSlime in TheWebOfSlime

I did read comments saying that after this episode they stopped airing Dr. Phil in the Netherlands

This is semi-true, it stopped on RTL 4 and moved to RTL 5 (4 is more of a Main channel than 5). But I can't find if they may have 'lost/skipped' this episode in the move. Dr. Phil is daytime/GOGETAJOB television as far as I know, never been a prominent evening program in The Netherlands.

Edit: On the same channels during the day are Tarotcard-phone-in-readers, teleshopping etc.

Jordan Peterson Announces Debate with Slavoj Zizek by Mnemonic in Philosophy

[–]Mnemonic[S] 2 insightful - 2 funny2 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 2 funny -  (0 children)

Slavoj would wreck JP on his charlatanism considering words like postmodern, marxism, capitalism and wisdom alone. But I kinda hope JP doesn't get too clamped down on his 'below-highschool level'-knowlegde about history, economics and philosophy and doesn't get anal about words like he did on his first Sam Harris podcast. I would like them to go after sniff As Peterson likes to cough, snifff call it, capitol T, truth.

Talking about Slavoj's mugshot (In all honesty he just looks like a normal person): Does Peterson have 'tv-makeup' on in this vid?
