Seriously, this has to violate fire codes if nothing else. There's only one point of egress, from the sound of it.

This seems to vary by state. For example, a quick google search revealed the following regulation for Texas:

  • Every room or space greater than 250 ft2 (23.2 m2) and used for classroom or other educational purposes or normally subject to student occupancy shall have not less than one outside window for emergency rescue that complies with all of the following, unless otherwise permitted by 14.2.11.1.2 [Which would not apply in this case]

It's based on how it's pronounced, not written, so it's "an R-T-S", or "a real-time strategy game".

His family feared he had been among an estimated 200,000 killed, or as many as 20,000 kidnapped, during the unrest.

It seems they were correct...

I Just Don’t See Trans Women As Women

I just can’t wrap my head around it. They want to be called and seen woman, but they have to get bottom surgery. Take hormone pills, all these excessive stuff to be a woman. They don’t have menstrual cycles nor can they carry a child. Why can’t they just be happy being a male and just wear feminine clothes? Like a femboy...

Having to be OK with them going into our bathrooms, not knowing if they could be a predator or not

Let me ask you something. You just outlined how much time, money and effort someone has to put into trying to transition. Hormone pills (and all of the problems that come with that), a change of wardrobe, a change in how they're asking people to view and refer to them... Dealing with people like you, who look down on them for trying it... Hate from far right groups, persecution from some governments... General social stigma...

Do you really think someone is going to go through all of that, and more that you haven't even covered here, just so they can walk into a women's room to... do whatever it is you're afraid they're doing? Really? I think the chances are better that any random woman you run into in the bathroom is a predator, honestly.

That's not what I asked you, though.

I can't think of anything I would want to download enough to use this interface.

That said, I did make about an 800% return by investing (a small amount) in Dogecoin immediately after he tweeted that it was his favorite cryptocurrency that one time. Figured his fan club would pump it, and boy did they. I got it at about $0.05 and sold out at $0.40, believe it peaked at $0.58 or so. Wish I'd wagered more than the $250 I did on it.

Hey, that's rad. I also have aphantasia, and found out about it from a post on Lemmy, of all places. Legitimately thought I was being pranked until I started asking some real life friends about their mental images. It was like being told that actually, the TV I think I'm watching is just a radio broadcast, and everyone else's is much cooler.

I have been watching the Prince of Persia game, but I would absolutely have glazed right over its release while entranced by Hades II, so yes, I agree with you, it's a very smart decision on their part.

(Also, can I just say, holy shit is Hades II some good value. It's basically two games worth of content in one. More than twice the size of Hades I. Utter insanity.)

Oh, no! I only have 7 hours until I have to get up! I'll be too tired tomorrow and have an awful day! I really hope I don't have trouble falling asleep because I'm stressed about that, then wake up every hour in a cold sweat because I'm dreaming I missed the appointment!

I work at a company whose entire business model is providing QA to other companies. I work directly with some very large, public companies, and some smaller ones. Almost all of them have some form of dedicated in-house QA, which we supplement.

I don't know exactly when 196 became an unofficial furry hotspot, but I'm here for it.

The percentage of furries that are queer is definitely higher than the total population average; I wonder if the percentage of queer folk who are furries is also similarly higher.

And here I thought there was some cultural context I was missing, like French people only getting haircuts once a year.

I find this just so completely impossible to understand. At least with crimes like murder or burglary, I can understand where the motivation came from, but this? What could they possibly gain by doing this, other than the thrill of destroying something beautiful, or the knowledge that they're making other people sad? How is that at all fulfilling?

I honestly feel that people who get their kicks from this sort of thing just have no place in modern society.

Plot twist: All of the "bot accounts" were actually a huge influx of Reddit users who were lurking. By removing the accounts / defederating with their instances, we've sent them all back to Reddit, ensuring Reddit can pull through the mass exodus.
