I'm gonna say something unpopular right now: netizens are dehumanizing Ned and Alex over their legal right of private affairs (although yes it's probably in breach of company contract), and I think a rule similar to hate speech rule should be placed to protect everyone involved (not just Ned and Alex but also Ariel, Will, kids, Try Guys staff, etc).

Another [source](https://newsrnd.com/news/2022-08-31-a-young-peruvian-trans-dies-in-bali-after-being-detained-at-the-airport.Byx7Tr2ys.html) gives more details about the murkiness of the situation.

I was wondering if urban parks will trigger the same response, since many cities often do not have such forests yet. I also wonder if the reason why "nature helps" is actually more about if the area has less number of people.

That’s a great question actually. From what I know, biological evolution somehow shapes human into two sexual classifications that lead to the division of subsistence, which creates social identity and people just extrapolate from there. Now with the rising egalitarianism in workfield and findings of various sex spectra, they at least need an update aren’t they?


I’m still not sure what to make. I really want to make digital arts such as animations, songs via DAW, but

  1. I’ve tried those with unsatisfactory results (via open-source programs, and actually via Fancade but it’s not really meant for those stuff), and I felt the learning curve is really high.

  2. I already viewed devices too much.

Cooking is also on the table, but from previous experience, it is actually quite stressful especially if it’s not delicious (similar to driving). Microwave cooking doesn’t seem a good accomplishment either loll (I don’t have an oven here, so no cook-and-leave, except maybe if I buy slow cooker). A possible reference that I have is this subreddit.

Growing a plant (the low-maintenance one) is an option too, overlapping with attempts to improve my mental health. But I’m still not fixed on things yet.



Maintaining mental health while using social media
I'm compiling possible ideas, and wondering how you guys think about this list (I also have a [previous post about how internet affects mental health](https://beehaw.org/post/143706)): - Time limit. l just installed TimeLimit from FDroid, which has a feature of notification prevention and break time. I'll let you know how it goes ahahha - Aim for personal connections instead of social validations (likes etc). A lot of sources will suggest to "make friends in real life", but it's pretty hard if you are just *locally non-mainstream*. I'm not sure how this works on Beehaw/Lemmy, but perhaps personal messages can be used more..? We're quite a small community here, so hopefully there's not too many bad incidents. - Self-moderate interactions with people and news (block, etc). - Mindful searching. This may include checking the current state of opened tabs. Edit: Ooo Lemmy features hiding likes and Beehaw removes dislikes, which can address the point 2.

Yeah I agree that the other people’s help should be just a supplement for the awareness to clean-up if things get messy (since the first few steps are often really hard).

What happens behind the correlation is quite tentative (I need to look more carefully about the research designs). But the examples you mention might be just a case of “in spite of being disorganized, the work quality is still high enough”, or otherwise “being busy”.

NB: I'll be wary of being too perfectionist with cleaning/tidying up.

I feel very difficult about this topic, since many of LGBT members (at least in my home country) seem to smoke or vape (and by default I as a non-smoker tend to avoid smokers due to second-hand exposure).

Inspired from someone artistic I met today. It's not too fancy or anything but really nice to know :D This is the [smaller, 16 page version of it](https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ0mpDjcqUY)

Everything looks noble until you realize we live in a capitalist world 😪




Yup, and I think it’s alright since this is more like a somewhat-artistic attempt


When I first saw the trailer I was like “oh nice”. I never thought the implication would be this far… #i_aint_cryin_you_cryin

I mean, what do you expect from an entity with two blue-balls trying to hold its desire? At least with Meta, they’re gonna lust over those metadata oooh


From my brief internet seaarch, I only found (I think from Neurosurgia journal) that cognitive empathy starts to develop among girls at 13 and boys at 15, and there is some brief time period (13-16) where boys may experience decreased affective empathy, possibly due to early testosterone influx.


I took this as an audit few years ago (not completed), and the part about conformity and groupthink actually made me contemplate about my religious stance. I can't entirely vouch for the consistence of the findings, but I think it introduce a lot of interesting social and psychological concepts. Another course I would recommend is Science of Everyday Thinking (EdX), which explains various biases and flaws in our decision making and how science incorporates preventions of these.

Competition and cooperation are usually understood as components of biological evolution. I was just wondering if altruism (similar to cooperation but doesn’t seem to benefit the individual) can also be explained, or it is rather merely a dogma to preserve the society.


I just had a talk with someone (an Australian high school teacher) about non-western history electives which he teaches and are recently added to the curriculum (considering the young timeline of Australia, some people living under White-Australian policy are still alive today). He said - which I agree - that students don’t need to approve what those countries are doing, but they need to understand the situations that form their decisions and philosophies.

Ooo this is quite cool :D
