Trying to sleep but it's 16 degrees out it should be illegal to be this hot at night by oakreefin just_ask

[–]trimalchio 0 points1 point ago

i mean, yeah, I'd keep the window open for sleeping then and it'd be nice. but it's like 50 or 10 here now so its like freezing cold to me and I'm just crying because I still want to be able to go outside and not hate everything. also i need to sort out boots that I don't hate because it might snow at any point from now until next june. fucking global warming.

Ever since I was ~15 I wanted to create an LGBT+ commune by 1vsin just_post

[–]trimalchio 3 points4 points ago

yeah no this is actually a thing. also I've been toying around with how to try and find government/ngo/private grants to find money to buy land to establish a self sufficient space for specifically lgbt youth who are displaced from rural areas to come and basically be the badasses they are already without the interference of everything that stresses us. basically i see no reason that we couldn't build our own everything at this point and stop relying on "society" and instead exploit capitalism for our own communal gain and growth.

i mean, like with a couple mil all the land and initial infrastructure could be bought to take on an initial group of people who are ready and willing to take on the task of building up the place, and then as time goes on grow and take on more diverse groups who can't necessarily work the heavy jobs. but like; getting the initial money together at a single point in time is kinda ridiculous... there aren't exactly philanthropic organizations that make big drops of money where there's no chance to influence them with an ongoing funding cycle...

so idk. i just can't imagine anyone who is both wildly rich and super communist who would fund something like that.

lol what I just watched an episode of the Twilight Zone that ended with a dude selling a cursed car to Khrushchev by oakreefin just_post

[–]trimalchio 4 points5 points ago

lol, the twilight zone killed it back in its day. like, that would've been so transgressive to subtly imply that world leaders are constantly lying back then. what a world they lived in.

asking for a friend (python/coding question) by oolongin just_post

[–]trimalchio 1 point2 points ago

yay! glad to help

and i totally get the weirdness about how they don't give a good explanation of why they have various things in a language, and it's definitely frustrating to find an explanation of the concepts that make sense. for this, I recommend looking through a variety of sources on a single subject to find the way that makes sense to you. I always liked when my CS teachers would give links to other teacher's lecture slides and stuff like that because sometimes their version made more sense. And the best part about all of that is that usually it's all still available online for free. like; http://www.cs.umd.edu/class/ that's a listing of all of the class websites for my old uni, and the class websites oftentimes have entire series of lectures available to download and some of them will even link to other course material on the internet. of those class pages; anything taught by Michelle Hugue will have a lot of extra material on the website because she is totally absent minded during lectures which worked out well for me.

anyways, i'm always down to help out with this stuff because i was carried through my university program by so many helpful people and I love to be able to pay that forward any way I can. so tell ur friend to come get an account here and post more about pragrammain

it's because the one that only matches the beginning of a string is faster by orders of magnitude probably.

in general programming languages provide multiple ways of doing these things for reasons like that, where something about what you're doing makes it possible to use a simpler and faster way of doing things but there is also the need to provide a more robust but slower way of doing it if the situation requires it.

I had a talk with my ex, which determined that A. even in different circumstances he would never want to get back together because B. he was honestly never very happy after the first year of our relationship (meaning, for 5 years of our relationship) by toasthastein just_post

[–]trimalchio 4 points5 points ago

finding out my ex became a republican made it really easy to concisely remind myself of our incompatibilities whenever i think about how i miss being in a relationship.

so i guess i'm recommending finding out he's a republican. i hope this helps

thanksgiving has pumpkin pie associated with it, but halloween doesn't really involve pie so specifically but i guess pumpkin pie would be most appropriate there too
