I'm moving to another instance. Find me at @projektir.
I fucking love shitposting, I don't have a problem with 90% of you, but for fuck's sake, just try to find a joke format that doesn't need an in group, an out group, and someone you say is okay to hurt.
Because at this point, it's beginning to look like some of you just like to hurt people.

This is a twitter-thread looking at a peer-reviewed study in a US facility that sure looks like it violated patient consent rules.
They looked at 'extremely reduced' post-operative opioid regime in a gynecological surgical center. 3 days opiods, then you're on Ibuprofen/Acetaminophen.
Still have pain? Come back into the office with your abdominal wound and get 3 more days of pills.
All in the name of reducing opioid diversion to the black market. Oh and addiction.

Education shouldn't just be about training workers. From now on when I see "work" in relation to education, I am going to substitute "exploit". Example from this morning:
"We know that by investing in career and technical education, by making sure our students have access to hands-on learning, that we can prepare students for the world of [exploitation], that we can create a skilled and diverse [exploited people], but also our kids are going to want to stay in school and graduate."
"Zero Tolerance" policies in schools are a tool of the school-to-prison pipepline. Lemme explain.
You do violence, you get expelled. No exceptions. Easy, simple, everyone knows what's what.
Except. The first punch is rarely thrown by the one starting shit. The first punch is often the *reaction* to the intolerable provocation. Bullies know this. Needle a kid until he explodes, laugh as the weenie gets thrown out of school.
Users develop craft -- incredibly complicated folk-ontologies, rituals, procedures, and heuristics -- for working with whatever tools they regularly use, & this craft is itself a tool. A user who identifies as 'non-technical' is in fact extremely technical: their desire to stay roughly within the bounds of the craft they have already developed leads them to invent incredible workarounds.
Nice haul today. I don't think I'll ever get tired of opening packages. The electronics are for Japaric's Rust + microcontrollers tutorial: https://japaric.github.io/discovery/
I write software for a living and I like Rust.
My hobbies are video games, bouldering, and armchair philosophy.
