How do people look at American society and think "this is something to aspire to be fully involved in"?

I'm at wit's end. I'm three months into a job search like the 30-month one I went through starting four years ago, and things proceed apace. I've gotten zero interviews despite 20 years of experience, and even finding things I think I could stand is a fucking tall ask....

The corruption and income inequality, in this country, disgusts me.

Thank you for being an active (i.e. moderator) part of the Beehaw project. It means a lot to me considering what you are going through.

When I was going through the toughest part of my life (I'll spare everyone the details), a friend of mine said to me: "This too shall pass". At the time, I felt like their statement was trite and dismissive.

Once I made it out into the other side of that shit, I realized that this was one of the best things that was said to me.

What you are going through is temporary. You will overcome this. There is always light at the end of the tunnel.

...stop conflating Zionism with Judaism...

Well, that's the rub. Lighting candles or throwing water onto people's foreheads isn't Judaism nor Christianity.

I believe that very many people, who claim to be either Jewish or Christian, do not have the fundamental knowledge of their own faith traditions. To be even more specific, they have no clue what the core of their faith tradition teaches.

I've been studying academic biblical scholarship for around thirty years, so that is why I can speak to this issue. I could go on and on about this subject matter and I may make some in-depth posts about it in the future.

The world will be a better place the day after every serious news media organization leaves twitter and tells all their journalists they cannot use it as anything other than an original source to what a specific public figure has to say.

YES!!!!!

I've been with Beeper since beta testing and use it with Discord. iMessage works fine for me btw. If anyone wants an invite, then I'd be happy to give you one.

How do you deal with suicidal thoughts?

I’ve 🐝 bee-n fighting for two years now. I have this « job » that I’ve been stuck with forever now. My inability to enjoy the little things of life is just another indication of my dereliction: hating the bitter man I’m becoming, seeing myself in people I despise, being unable to think, speak, create....

Google's Chrome Browser Analyzing Your Browsing History with so-called "Privacy Sandbox" Feature

For nearly two years now, Google has been gradually rolling out a feature to all Chrome users that analyzes their browsing history within the browser itself. This feature aims to replace third-party cookies and individual tracking by categorizing you into an interest category and sharing that category with advertisers. It's like...

I haven’t seen a single bit of advertisement for the last 15 years.

Same...weird how most people don't know about ad blocking strategies.

They accept the modern ultra-cluttered short attention span theater moneygrab marketplace as ‘the norm’

So true!

HAHAHA! Yeah! I remember that awful noise!

Microsoft stole my Chrome tabs, and it wants yours, too (www.theverge.com)

Last week, I turned on my PC, installed a Windows update, and rebooted to find Microsoft Edge automatically open with the Chrome tabs I was working on before the update. I don’t use Microsoft Edge regularly, and I have Google Chrome set as my default browser. Bleary-eyed at 9AM, it took me a moment to realize that Microsoft...

I'm sorry that you had to go through what you did. I left Christianity behind over 20 years ago for various reasons. I've since just been happy embracing the ineffable.

The admin/mod team here make the final decision as to what is nice or not. Do you have a genuine grievance?
