You know what I wanted to be mad. I wanted to say "Come on what is this!?" but now that I'm thinking about it I think it's cool that TV shows used to have gimmick episodes like this one, where the crew of Deep Space 9 play baseball.

It's nice that they used to spend the money to make episodes of TV shows where it was clearly just the writers fucking around.

Aw man that's too bad that they killed off Jadzia. Neqt that they can do other stuff with Dax, and explore the multi life cycle thing but she was a cool character.

Like say you want to reduce poverty. Why? To me it's because I hated being in poverty and I don't want anyone to feel it.

But there's no rational reason to care. There's no universal truth in existence that says suffering is bad and we should avoid it or avoid causing it in others; there's only our feeling bad when we experience it or see it in others or believe we have dine it.

Even utilitarianism doesn't explain why suffering is bad, it just assumes so and then says we should minimize it.

Trying to understand why people do what they do rationally is a sucker's game. I think for 90% of people, ideology is something they arrive on to explain to themselves ex post facto why they feel the way they do about things, to feel like their worldview is more than just a collection of gut feelings.

But at base, no matter what, there's something at the base of anyone's psyche that just cannot be expressed rationally.

With cars driving themselves now, do we really need Americans anymore?

Hot tip: whenever you see someone driving a Lamborghini, flip them off.

I know that every show made in the 70s and 80s was set in the 50s and 60s, so the nostalgia bait thing is not new, but were they also packed full of references meant to make you go "oh yeah I remember those things!" Like, for example, Guardians of the Galaxy or Stranger Things?

What's a good Linux incremental backup solution? I'm using rsync for now but it just keeps the current snapshot, not older copies. I'd like to be able to make one mirror, and then keep diff's from that.

Is there anything like that for Linux?

Actually you know what he was ok in Fargo too other than the not great accent, and nobody in that show or movie had a good Minnesota accent. I don't mean to be too harsh on him.

Show thread

I think Ewan McGregor is a good actor but his Minnesota accent is not great. He's a lot better in Obi-wan Kenobi than he is in Fargo.

You know what? I'm glad y'all are having fun with it, the morbius the merrierbius
