@gnome A few years ago, I was watching my sister doing her college homework; she was studying biology. I saw her editing a photo in the GIMP, on Windows.
"Sis, I didn't know you used the GIMP."
"Oh, yeah, some friends at school told me about it, it's a Photoshop clone one can just download."
"Sis, did you know I was the maintainer like 15 years ago? I wrote the first third-party plugin for it."
I'm happy that we've given non-computer nerds good software.
Its a maddening thing to look at Spanish written codices and see my ancestors villified as barbarians. Its true that famine and power corruption had taken hold of the empire eventually as all power does eventually corrupt, but this was not who the Mexica were. Our people were bright, humble, strong. They were invested in education and the arts and preserving the world around them. They were not the arbiters of destruction that they have been made out to be. That was Hernan Cortes and his war.
Si, posiblemente se vaya a escapar.
Veremos si este toot envejece bien. Espero que no.
Shocking news in USA.
three consecutive shootings in two days, the first occurred in "El Paso", Texas, the second in Ohio and the last in Chicago, Illinois.
The authorities recognize the first two shootings (this is all the information I have at the moment) as a hate crime and also as internal terrorism. In the first, Mexican immigrants were killed and also Latino descendants, in the second, the victims were mostly black people.
Meanwhile, Republicans blame video games for these cases of terrorism, while defending the second amendment that allows people to carry weapons freely.
Donald Trump eliminated several "tweets" in which he blames immigrants for the situation of insecurity in the United States, possibly to prevent his image from being related to recent events.
This could trigger a political crisis in the "land of freedom"
Noticias impactantes en Estados Unidos.
TRES tiroteos seguidos en dos días, el primero en El Paso, Texas, el segundo en Ohio, y el tercero en Chicago, Illinois.
Las autoridades reconocen los dos primeros tiroteos (es toda la información que tengo) como delitos de odio y terrorismo interno, en el primero murieron inmigrantes mexicanos y personas de ascendencia latina, mientras que en el segundo fueron personas de raza negra.
Mientras tanto, republicanos culpan a los videojuegos de estos actos de terrorismo, defendiendo la segunda enmienda que permite la libre portación de armas.
Donald Trump borra varios "tweets" donde culpa a los inmigrantes de la situación de inseguridad en el país, posiblemente para no ver su imagen relacionada con los recientes hechos.
Esto podría desatar una crisis política en el "país de la libertad".

De acuerdo con la página web oficial de los testigos de Jehová, tener relaciones sexuales antes del matrimonio está al mismo nivel que consumir drogas xD.
A strong argument against the current trend of criticizing billionaire philanthropy: https://slatestarcodex.com/2019/07/29/against-against-billionaire-philanthropy/
It gave me a lot to think about.
> The idea that we should divert money from freeing the incarcerated, saving animals, and reuniting families - to instead expanding incarceration, torturing animals, and separating families - seems monstrous to me, even (especially?) when cloaked in communitarian language.
Some ant species developed agriculture millions of years before we did, and live on mushrooms that they cultivate themselves
