Except that Vine did allow videos longer than 6 seconds.

I was big into Vine. Like it was the only thing I cared about for a period of time.

Custoslibera OP ,

I’m certain they did, but the main page of vine was curated by humans at some point. It was organic for a moment in time or at least gave that appearance.

Custoslibera ,

The unwashed masses (like myself) will eventually change Lemmy. I don’t think it will ruin it completely because the best part about having hundreds of millions of lemmings is the niche communities.

The main instances and communities are going to get shot to hell though. I’ve accepted that.

Custoslibera ,

It’s ok. You go when you’re ready!

Custoslibera ,

I wonder how many lemmings understand this is a Beach Boys reference.

Do they still get a lot of radio play in the USA?

Custoslibera ,

Could you post your social security number, please?

Custoslibera OP ,

Thanks for this, reading now.

I’ve also been busy reading the history of the rise of the Nazi party particularly the SA.

It’s scary (scary is not a strong enough word for the combined emotions of frustration, anger, fear, anxiety) how close current USA events are replicating the original rise of Nazi Germany.

Custoslibera OP ,

No things wont be fine. At least for me and many others anyway.

I’m sorry you can’t see that yet.

There is an underclass of angry, often white, men who are frustrated at their life and instead of directing their rage at the capitalist system, which is responsible for the position they are in, they’ve been told immigrants, socialism, feminism, LGBTQIA+ and brown people are the problem.

They are now organising to make their fictional narrative reality and I will be crushed when this happens along with millions of others, like you, who thought this could never happen again.

The tragedy is that those same men who think they’ll be empowered by fascists will be swept aside the moment they are no longer useful. They are victims to an extent too, just that they will have enacted violence and terror while being wrong.

Custoslibera OP ,

How old do you think I am?

I’m ancient by Lemmy standards.

Age has made me more aware that most adults have no idea what they are doing but think they actually do by virtue that they’ve survived to their 40’s and beyond. This makes them incredibly dangerous.

Custoslibera OP ,

If they ever secure power my fate is basically sealed. I’ve accepted that.

It’s not slippery slope to be clear eyed about reality.

Custoslibera OP ,

If Modi, Trump, La Pen, Orban aren’t elected/reelected perhaps I’d change my view but I don’t have good reasons for thinking those things won’t happen.

If you believe that if those people are elected and it won’t lead to more fascism then I’m not sure what to say.

Custoslibera OP ,

Hmmmm I also frequent white supremacist sympathising discord and my general take away is that they are more desperate and more willing to take violent action to align reality with their views.

Of course this is only anecdotal so it’s kind of a moot point.

I’d be more confident in your opinion if there wasn’t a prevailing view that America will reelect Trump.

If trump isn’t elected it may not even stop fascism though.

Hitler was jailed before he rose to power, trump could very easily do the same. If I’m going to be optimistic about anything it’s the fact that Trump is very old and may not survive prison or the presidency for an extended period.

Custoslibera OP ,

I hope you’re correct. I just don’t fully believe it.

Custoslibera ,

Welcome and please stay on Lemmy. It’s what reddit used to be and only improves every month the more people come here.

Custoslibera ,

I’ve just had premonitions of cars crashing into each other in car parks when the ‘self parking’ mode is hacked…

Custoslibera OP ,

Jesse, what the fuck are you talking about?

Custoslibera ,

It’s trite but it does help.

If you consistently exercise hard I.e. go for a 5 mile run it will help release endorphins

Custoslibera OP ,

Ikr. Really should have made this Jan 1st.

Custoslibera OP ,

I’m making a note here. Huge success.

Custoslibera ,

What a relief!

Custoslibera ,

Tax should pay for healthcare of all citizens.

Why am I paying tax if I still have to pay to see a doctor?

Custoslibera ,

If you had of invested the equivalent amount of money in the Dow Jones index instead of purchasing 10kg of gold and kept it invested from 1920-2024 you would have ~$15 million.

Custoslibera OP ,

I’m more referring to myself.

I was in my 20’s once and thought I was a fully fledged adult. In some ways I was, in others I was not, I was still just a kid.

Probably say the same about myself in another 20 years.

Custoslibera OP ,

“Baby, this relationship is so good I want to get the government involved”

Custoslibera OP ,

Luck is something I didn’t consider.

Custoslibera OP ,

Hahahahahaha

Cries in paralysing anxiety

Custoslibera OP ,

Oh I have issues with commitment and a constant feeling of ‘Is this the best I can expect?’ but I don’t regret my younger life.

My ‘weird’ sentiment stems more from me looking in from the outside at relationships where 20 year olds decide they want to spend the rest of their lives with each other. I can’t imagine missing out on potentially meeting someone more compatible. Can you really meet the most compatible person for you when you’re 20?

When I was 20 I was a very different person, I’m assuming that’s similar for others.

Other commenters have talked about how they grow with partners but I wonder if it’s truly possible to do that while being so ‘together’ with another person. Some things you have to learn on your own.

Custoslibera OP ,

What happened man? You used to be cool.

Custoslibera OP ,
Custoslibera OP ,

Very interesting perspective that you wouldn’t encourage your kids to do the same as you, why’s that?

To be honest if my kids married at 20 it’s not like I’d try to stop it, despite my reservations about it. I’d think it was a potential mistake but that’s coming from me as concern rather than disapproval.

Custoslibera ,

I swear when Wikipedia was a Wild West and weird edits stayed up for a long time there was an entry on the Conway Twitty article that described a story about a man who was divorcing a woman who was just a terrible person. He ended up walking out of their house with nothing but came back only for his Conway Twitty records.

That story always stuck with me and made me appreciate the impact Conway had.

Custoslibera ,

Hollow Knight

Apparently not that much of an unpopular opinion though reading through the comments.

Custoslibera ,

The joke is the difference in meaning between the words ‘basic’ and ‘prime’ not the actual underlying services.

Custoslibera OP ,

You silly billy.

The point is that neither man is likely to have a cognitive condition that would affect their presidency.

It’s hypocritical because the Republicans constantly attack Biden for similar gaffes despite the fact Biden is pretty much just like Trump when it comes to mental acuity.

Do I think trump has completely lost his marbles because of one gaffe? No.

In the same way Biden is just as coherent.

Both men being relatively equal on this the distinguishing factor then turns to the fact that one has said they will be a literal dictator and the other likes ice cream and capitalism.

Custoslibera ,

This better be a gif of Jim Carey being born out of a rhinoceros because it’s not loading for me and this comment will make no sense otherwise.

    Ignore the idiots.

    Taylor Swift is just as bad as Elon Musk. No one should be a billionaire. No one.

    Custoslibera , (edited )

    Those fucks who run Parler aren’t anti-establishment, quite the opposite, they are boot licking fascists.

    Custoslibera ,

    Grammar Nazi is an english term that means someone who is very strict about using correct words and punctuation.

    It is meant to be humorous. It does not mean they are a Nazi.

    Custoslibera ,

    My pleasure. Hope your English studies go well.
