Our Sourcehut instance migrated to Alpine and finally resolved the final issue we had this morning.

Also got Honk updated and blobs extracted.

Barca is currently beating PSG.

So far it's been a good day.

@icy Honestly you could be right haha. I don't remember but the purpose of cancer guy (in the end) was definitely in the book. Same with weed guy. In the book I don't remember them being a group of friends like this but it's been like 5 years since I've read them so, I could be wrong too.

Holy shit, after today's lifts I just realized I'm only 5 pounds away from the 1000lb club, which I haven't been in for over a decade. I could toss that 5lbs on the squat or dead lift bar and be done with it.

10 years after really f'n my back up doing deadlifts I never thought I'd be back to lifting this heavy (heavy for me anyway) in my mid 40's.

Stats this week:

Squat: 345lbs
Deadlift: 415lbs
Bench: 235lbs

Let's see what coach has programmed for next week.

@icy Interesting. Still not working for me. Even when browsing your site. I'm using FF on Alpine Linux, maybe the FF extension has an issue. I don't even see the webfinger request coming in (at least the log statement isn't running). I'll toy around with this a bit later.

@icy did you ever get the StreetPass stuff working in honk? I merged your patch but the extension doesn't recognize my setup (or yours when I tried).

@icy I'm not one of these vegans that shames others, etc. I do my thing, it gets people to ask me a lot of questions (especially here in Latin America) and I answer honestly. Ie, I never went vegan for the animals, I did it to shut my daughter up (who's been vegan forever) and committed to 30 days. I felt so good I did another 30, then another. After 6mo, I decided I wasn't going back.

Then it slowly turned into compassion for the animals as well. So even at times when I see a In-n-Out double double or some bomb looking tacos and my mouth starts to water I remind myself about that compassion and set my cravings aside.

One thing I often get is "just like a lion eats an antelope, we eat animals too" - which I love to answer with, can you go kill a cow with your bear hands and mouth? If so, can you chew it up with your jaw and teeth? Can you eat it without cooking it and not get sick? I mean the argument is so dumb.

DZ: World Central Kitchen

DZ: World Central Kitchen

While the nytimes and WaPo are describing IDF's killing of World Central Kitchen aid workers as a single strike, Haaretz (a left-leaning Israeli newspaper) is reporting there were three strikes, separated enough that personnel had time to move the injured between vehicles.

"At some point, when the convoy was driving along the approved route, the war room of the unit responsible for security of the route ordered the drone operators to attack one of the cars with a missile.

Some of the passengers were seen leaving the car after it was hit and switching to one of the other two cars. They continued to drive and even notified the people responsible that they were attacked, but, seconds later, another missile hit their car.

The third car in the convoy approached, and the passengers began to transfer to it the wounded who had survived the second strike – in order to get them out of danger. But then a third missile struck them. All seven World Central Kitchen volunteers were killed in the strike."


I copied/pasted this because I couldn't xzone it for some reason, though no doubt it's an issue on the Mastodon side. Original toot:

My family of 4 ate at Olive Garden for the first time, and our $150 meal felt like an excellent value

Oh Business Insider, your selling out has been tough to watch but schilling Olive Garden is a new low.

Finished 3 Body Problem. I really enjoyed it and thought they did a good job with it. The deviations actually helped the story telling (in TV format anyway) so they didn't annoy me too much.

Now the long wait for S2 :(

3 Body Problem E1 was not bad. I was expecting to be disappointed but I liked the episode. Some slight deviations but nothing crazy (also it's been so long since I've read the books I may be forgetting some things).

Looking forward to the series.

@penalbatoday You're confusing raw food (harvested) with diet (prepared food). If you don't understand the difference then there's nothing else to discuss.

So you understand, you can also have a very unhealthy vegan diet. French fries, processed foods, also lots of fried foods. These vegan burgers and "chicken" nuggets, etc. are terrible for you but people still eat them, myself included occasionally.

You said something dumb about offering more dietary options means gentrification and I simply said I didn't think it meant that. It's hilarious you're so upset that I called the typical nica diet unhealthy. I don't know a single nica (and all my friend group here is nica) who would disagree with that.

Hell my domestic employee just resigned for health reasons, caused solely by terrible diet (her doctors words, not mine). She's 24 years old and is starting the road into diabetes. All sugar, all oil, all fried, all sodas. We've tried to help her but she admits she can't stop eating that way. It's how she's always eaten.

@penalbatoday Hah, come on man. I buy all my fruits/veggies from Mayoreo or vendors in my local area. But stop acting like the typical nica diet includes a lot of vegetables. It doesn't. It's oil, sugar, various animal proteins, gallo pinto (fried rice/beans), and sugary drinks. Even the naturales have so much sugar it's hard to drink one (for me). I usually ask if they can make me one without sugar.

A salad in a typical nica restaurant is lettuce, tomato and onions.

Again, I'm only saying options are good, not "prejudice" against Nica food. Shit, I'm from EEUU, our diet is worse than Nica's.

@penalbatoday Not sure what hostel owners have to do with this but yea you're right about most of them lol. I mentioned Coca and fried foods because we're talking about diet. Are you seriously going to try and claim the typical nica diet is healthy?

I'm not even advocating for a change in diet completely but having options for those who don't want fritanga or another churrasco is a good thing.

As for gentrification, outside of SJDS, I can't think of a single place in the country that has any signs of it. Maybe small beach towns like El Transito and Popoyo/Guasacate but these are tiny towns where mostly (only?) foreigners are currently investing. I hope that changes with the coming Costa Nera.
