Ever wanted to start a public online presence? It's easier than you think. You don't need no fancy studio or Pajeets who do your video editing. Just do it and stop making excuses. I take a trip down memory road and talk about my old apartment with a broken toilet where I recorded my first videos.

Videos I mentioned here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zpgQpdy_fI (Video on How to Choose a Linux Distro: STOP THINKING!)

Imagine identifying yourself as a "dev" and not knowing something basic like vim or Linux. If only people used the mental energy they use to rationalize why they should know nothing to do the bare minimum, the world wouldn't be in the absolute state it is.

Soydevs are constantly bloatmaxxing our software and building "features" in the most superficial way redundantly in everything. What is the end result? Can we stop it? In other words, why use minimalist software?

You can have color emojis in suckless software now due to a fix in libxft! Color emojis will no longer crash st, dmenu and dwm. I already have them working in my st build, but I'm sure that soon you'll be able to have color emojis in your dwm statusbar as well. Will normies take over suckless software now?

Nearly every academic paper published since the 1960s has used statistics known to be faulty.

That sounds extreme, but it's actually not even controversial in the statistical literature.

In the 1950s, Ronald Fisher invented a statistical technique to solve the philsophical Problem of Induction. Neyman and Pearson developed a technique for statistical quality control in factories. Yet somehow, these two techniques were confused and merged into the Null Ritual of today, which is the neurotic pattern that every paper in many disicplines have to follow.

The Null Ritual is one of the clearest examples of academic consensus so far off the tracks that scholar treat the techniques in textbooks were religious devotion, rather than with critical awareness of what they are actually supposed to be. The end result? Nearly every field is rife with misuse of numbers, publication bias, misunderstandings and fake conclusions.

Cringe boomer who doesn't understand kids-these-days and who probably just living off of social security unironically talks about why he unironically thinks cell phone usage is bad. He refuses to even buy premium open source phones like the Purism Librem 5; what a shill! What's next? Is he going to tell us to stop playing video games?

Here's the story of how I became a Lincuck: it involves BoomerOS (Windows 95), Civilization II, n00buntu, Gentoo, Manjaro, ThinkPads, my thesis, vim and LaTeX. I talk about why I started using it after many years of knowing that it was out there, and what makes GNU/Linux unique.

I just wanna grill, fellow boomers! Why can't we live in a magical fantasy land where massive generational technological change has literally no effect on society whatsoever? Why do people have the idea that GNU/Linux, an operating system that only exists for political reasons, has anything to do with politics? Also, we can own those SJWs epic style by being reasonable and respectable, then they will spontaneously give up all the power we have voluntarily given them out of our misguided open platforms that at every turn invariably give over power to people who openly state they would like exploit our liberalisticist values.

THIS IS WHAT BOOMER CONSERVATIVES ACTUALLY BELIEVE.

30-year-old Boomer once again rants about how technology nowadays just can't measure up to how it used to be, all done next to his landline phone and his Nintendo 64 with a Banjo Kazooie cartridge in it, which *sips* was a good game.
