Is steam deck AMD? That would make a lot of sense.

I love how the guy making this joke can’t bring themselves to commit to the bit.

I mean, are there people who see themselves as Patrick Bateman? Walter white is a bit of a stretch too, but Bateman.

The fundamental tenet of a working democracy is voting. Everyone should have a vote and everyone should exercise their right to vote. To that end we have been seeing posts attempting to shame/mock or otherwise influence people not to vote. While this is a meme community, the idea that people shouldn’t vote goes against the fundamentals of a democracy by the people and for the people. To that end, we are adding a new rule that disallows posts that discourage or shame people from voting. This doesn’t mean that you can’t address how people vote, but even those who don’t agree with you and your political views should still vote. We all should. Everyone. Part of the reason we are in the mess we are in now is because participation in democracy is abysmal. Posts discouraging people from voting are essentially propaganda and will be removed.

PoliticalMemes is a community for having fun at the expense of our political hellscape we find ourselves in. People not voting is a big part of why.

We are taking feedback on this change, please let us know if you agree or disagree in the comments and why.

That is a pretty short dude.

And that is pretty much how everything goes in the church. Everything you do is because The Lord told you to. So glad I freed myself from that circus.

We saw VERY few nominations for books in December, and I know everyone is very busy with the season. We'll open nominations for January at the end of the month so be thinking about it.

INSTEAD... we are going to be reading some short stories for those that still want to have something to read together.

Let's read:

  • This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
  • The Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
  • The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster

If you have other suggestions we can throw them out here too. I'll create discussion for these three for now.

I know this is a busy month for a lot of us. So far we only have 2 nominations for the book club and one of them is mine. It seems like December might not be a great month for the book club. If we don't get a few more nominations I am going to cancel for December and push whatever nominations we get into nominations for January.

What do you guys think? Should we cancel book club for December and pick up in January or do you guys want to move forward (which will some more nominations for a vote to make sense).

Here's the nomination post for convenience. November Nominations

The time has come, friends, to nominate more reading for December! This post will collect nominations for the next few days (I'm thinking into the weekend) and then we'll have us a vote. Please don't hesitate to talk about why you want to share your pick and why you think it will be a good item for discussion.

I whipped this up today because I am always having to look it up and figure out when I am supposed to put my turkey from the Freezer to the Fridge. I plan to pretty it up over the next few days but hopefully this will be helpful to others (me too since I am cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year). I am open to suggestions too if you have any.

Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald

We had a lot of selections to choose from this month and it was pretty close race between Luna and Annihilation. I am very excited to experience this book and enjoy the discussion.

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

Annihilation is our second place selection for November. We decided to choose a second book for people who want to have a little more variety and want to do more than one book in a month. I am looking forward to the discussion on this one. I saw the movie when it came out but am really interested to experience the story in book form.

For me I would say "The Expanse" is a huge one. If there was ever a self made family, the crew of the Rocinante is one of the best. The amount of time they spend together and how they congeal into life long partners and friends in the face of some truly awful events is really inspiring to me.

The Holdovers (lemmy.world)

We went to see The Holdovers in a limited screening this weekend and I have to say it was one of the best movies of its kind I have seen in many years. I found myself connecting deeply with he characters and was delighted that the audience was treated with respect throughout. Paul Giamatti's performance was excellent once again, and the film itself was a work of art from the solid humorous moments to the tear jerking bits. This film is well worth watching. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

Man, the GOP have really let themselves be gutted by their most extreme members.

I would love for everyone to stop wanting to be influencers.

I have been posting and commenting a LOT more than I ever did on Reddit. Some small part of that is a desire to grow the platform and my communities.
