Louisiana Legislature approves bill classifying abortion pills as controlled dangerous substances ( apnews.com )

Two abortion-inducing drugs could soon be reclassified as controlled and dangerous substances in Louisiana under a first-of-its-kind bill that received final legislative passage Thursday and is expected to be signed into law by the governor....

I had a much better experience with Manjaro over EndeavourOS because it supported more of my hardware, but to be fair I'm using an Asus gaming laptop. When I build my next desktop, I'm gonna try a straight Arch install.

You're making me want to reread all of the books. GNU, Terry Pratchett.

Just want to clarify, as an Jewish American clergyman, the Israeli government is not our government. To say otherwise is to play into the Israeli propaganda which states "To be Jewish is to be Israeli, and to be Israeli is to be Jewish." The fact that the Israeli government has twisted religion to serve its fascist goals is nauseating.

"Shortly before the Patrician came to power there was a terrible plague of rats. The city council countered it by offering twenty pence for every rat tail. This did, for a week or two, reduce the number of rats—and then people were suddenly queueing up with tails, the city treasury was being drained, and no one seemed to be doing much work. And there still seemed to be a lot of rats around. Lord Vetinari had listened carefully while the problem was explained, and had solved the thing with one memorable phrase which said a lot about him, about the folly of bounty offers, and about the natural instinct of Ankh-Morporkians in any situation involving money: “Tax the rat farms.”

-from "Soul Music" by Terry Pratchett

I can hear both of these quotes so clearly. I'm sad about what Blizzard has become.

GFGJewbacca ,

Oh my sweet summer child. Ringtones were in a different audio format than mp3s. Plus, getting the ringtone onto the phone required additional fuckery.

GFGJewbacca ,

To be fair, the plague in Hebrew (Egyptian?) is צפרדע /tz'fardei'ah, which looks like a singular and not a plural. I totally see where he's coming from. But also, I thought it was in Midrash Tanchuma.

What the hell, calculators with color screens? Back in my day our graphing calculators were black and gray and we were told to be happy, damn it.

GFGJewbacca ,

EndeavorOS might also be a good option, from what I've heard. It's Arch based, but easier to install and use. I recently switched to Garuda, also Arch based, but focused more on the gaming community.

GFGJewbacca OP ,

Sorry about that. I'll keep that in mind if this gets taken down. Thanks!

GFGJewbacca OP ,

That's really cool! Didn't know that. Thanks for sharing, since I've just subscribed to the community.

GFGJewbacca OP ,

I did select a number of programs to install during setup so I had everything I needed. Spot on!

I have an ASUS ROG laptop running Fedora 39 right now. The reason Fedora is popular with these laptops is that the controller that switches between the two graphics cards is native to Fedora. It's explicitly recommended on the site.

EDIT: It looks like there are more distros that work on ROG laptops since I did it. Pretty cool!

GFGJewbacca ,

Woah, you were involved in the project! That's really cool. I've had Garuda on my mind for a while, and earlier today I was able to boot it off the live USB with NVIDIA proprietary drivers. That's a really good sign for me, so I think I'm gonna go for it once I've backed things up.

GFGJewbacca ,

I've been using those on my Fedora install without a hitch. I think I'm gonna go for the Garuda install today after I finish backing things up. Excited!

GFGJewbacca ,

It's part of the training. People are happier when they have food in their mouths, so that's why waitstaff wait until your mouth is full before asking. That way, they can avoid complaints.

I'm saving this comment for when I feel ready to do that kind of work. I need it

I have been living in Botswana for the past two years, and I'm genuinely surprised where it is on this list. Yeah, people here don't have the greatest deal, but there's freaking universal healthcare here. The country has been extremely politically stable since independence. There's no way people are less happy here than those who are in active war zones.

GFGJewbacca ,

I see your point. I know that there are folks unhappy with the current government, but to be fair, who isn't? The San have also been pretty fucked over by the government.

My wife is finishing up a global health pediatric fellowship. She arrived in 2021, and I came out about a year later because I was finishing up chaplaincy training and I had a contract to finish out for a synagogue I was working for.

GFGJewbacca ,

Ever since I read through the Discworld series, I always think of this when I see comments like the one above. GNU, Terry Pratchett.

GFGJewbacca ,

Tell me you love Discworld without saying you love Discworld.

GFGJewbacca ,

For those of you who want to hear how that super long city name is pronounced. Or, you can learn how to say it from this catchy song!

GFGJewbacca ,

He claimed that the Marvel movie Black Panther was "created by an agnostic Jew and put to film by satanic Marxists" that was "only created to pull the shekels out of your Schvartze pockets"

Holy hell, that's a very specific kind of antisemitism.

I was about to say, this is some strong Granny Weatherwax energy

Bee running Fedora for months. Love it on my gaming laptop.

Makes me crave a regular human alcoholic beer.

...and making your partner cum on Shabbos is a mitzvah

It's not just a mitzvah, it's a double mitzvah!

If You Can’t Afford an Attorney, One Will Be Appointed. And You May Get a Huge Bill ( www.themarshallproject.org )

On television and in the movies, police officers read people their Miranda rights and tell them they will be provided a lawyer if they cannot afford one. But in reality, legal representation is rarely free. The Supreme Court has found the Constitution guarantees the right to counsel but allows states, in most cases, to try to...

GFGJewbacca ,

Of course, because they're incredibly valuable slave labor.

GFGJewbacca ,

I'm not so sure about that. The Fairness Doctrine required that all sides be presented as having equal weight, which in our time would include Nazism, eugenics and Fascism.

Sonic and Knuckles is one of the best games out there because of the cartridge slot on top. Playing Sonic 2 as Knuckles was so much fun.
