Social Media content about a digital fast or balance in using social media by StudentRadicalin just_post

Actually a great idea: You're permitted to unfollow, hide or mute one (1) user on social media today. I know you've been wanting to do it. Feel free to. You're under no obligation to follow people you don't like and not doing so doesn't reflect badly upon it.

Honestly I find it that a brief comment won't suffice. There's two way to write a longer one, make something that stands more on its own or quote the articles at relevant parts and write as reaction, much like arguments in Reddit comments work. The former is too ambitious at the moment. The latter, sadly, has to wait to tomorrow and I fear that means I'll never do it.

If I can cheat, let me say that the purity culture is a problem but I don't. Structural issues in online media play a role (anger drives usage), alienated people find themselves on the internet to a disproportionate degree, cultural issues like an evangelical background that has been only partially left behind, interactivist competition at being the most Subversive and Radical and lack of organization and, yes, discipline. There are some rhetorically deeply misguided ideas floating around in the SJ-sphere. But this is superficial, the way I'm putting it, but that will have to do for now.

New idea for a HBO drama by StudentRadicalin just_post

honestly this is just too morbid to me, it's almost completely hopeless scenario and so many postapocalyptic works of fiction already exist. I mean sure feel free to write your own (and I'm sure my advice will go ignored), but it's nothing I'd ever do.

Sorry but my cultural background renders this undesirable. Until then I'll be eating copious amounts of rye bread to render my gut flora invincible.

anybody remember undertale? by hoppetin killallgames

[–]StudentRadical 1 point2 points ago

I think with Undertale it could be that it was so popular among such a varied age group. Undertale fans range from 10 year olds to 50 year old video game critics. This leads to 14 year olds seeing that what they like is kid stuff and oh boy isn't that embarrassing! It doesn't help that pop culture for teens is so forward looking, not take your time, but you're a square if you don't do coke and have sex and drink alcohol, basically the 13 year old's idea of life in a party college.

I must admit that I literally thought to myself when I first read your comment 'wow how boring that would be' but then I thought, like, I think that a French midwest could be hella interesting at least and a Mexican California with a gold rush as well.

tbh if you're talking about teenagers, they often find the most innocuous stuff to be something to be embarrassed about. Like being a furry, which is like extremely benign and they seem to police they're community better than just about anything else. Besides gifting a copy to the Pope I don't remember anything that's out of ordinary for a fandom.

It's hard to believe that Undertale was released 57 years ago.

i built a transit center around where a wolf was living and now it’s wandering around the transit center by hoppetin killallgames

[–]StudentRadical 1 point2 points ago

About the latter thing, yeah but the interesting thing is sort of how they perceive space. Like apparently they think that streets are empty space around blocks and we think that blocks are empty space between streets, if that makes sense. Sometimes the mundane cultural differences are among the most interesting ones.

this as, like, total off topic but Japan does its zoning so that instead of mandating the use of land for some one purpose, like heavy industry or residential detached houses or apartment blocks and so on, they mandate what categories are or aren't acceptable. Thus you can have light industry, detached houses and a smallish apartment complexes existing side by side and I think that's cool.

I truly wonder why they didn't make it about two varieties of ice cream during summer. Cake simply isn't in season where most of gamers live.
