If you're an NSFW artist or someone who would reasonably feel concerned about Google Drive's proposed content policies here are some alternatives:

- WeTransfer can do file transfers for you and it doesn't have any creepy policies that would endanger NSFW artists.

- SpiderOak One can do backups. It's end to end encrypted so only you have access to your files. Their website looks really dodgy nowadays but the service still works. There may be better alternatives nowadays though.

Discord calling its guilds "servers" is a really neat marketing trick and absolutely insidious because it screws with normal peoples' already bad understanding of what a "server" is, and erases the distinction between itself and decentralised services

One other question for everyone! Is there by any chance a muscle growth/gaining instance, or ideally a muscle fur instance? :)

Being a vampire must be terrible, because then I wouldn't be able to enjoy garlic bread.

I feel like maybe my Mastodon has become less social over time. Idk why. I’m finding myself on here less and less and that makes me sad.

Suicide, depression, references to mental and emotional abuse 

Literally the day I leave Apple, this gets published:
apple.news/Av-b1PWxpRF-rGRjpQY...
This is accurate to my experience working in AppleCare. I think it’s actually worse than this in some areas but it’s a pretty accurate take.

So I did 15 school assignments in one day. This is about how my brain is holding up.

Me: money is fake

Them: yeah it's just paper that we ascribe value to

Me: no it's faker than that. Only 3 percent of USD exists as physical currency. The rest is just bank credit.

Them: right, so money is just numbers in bank accounts that the government creates from nothing

Me: no, it's faker than that. Most money is bank credit, created by private banks. Not the government, not the Fed, banks like Chase or Bank of America. They take zero dollars and turn that into a loan and debt. They decide who gets new money. Capitalists decide where new money is created and who it goes to. If the government paid back all government debt, there would be no more treasury bonds, and then if everybody paid off all their private debt, there would be no more money.

Them: wow, so most money is just credit corresponding to debt, and there's just a small amount of money they borrow from the federal reserve that was created by the government.

Me: no, it's faker than that. Since 2020 reserve requirements were abolished. Banks don't need to legally keep any money on hand or borrow money from the federal reserve or each other at all. They can just pay interest on every dollar they create to the federal reserve without borrowing from the Fed at all.

Them: oh. So money is REALLY fake.

Me: yeah. so if the government just paid off all of our student debt it wouldn't affect the money supply at all. It would do nothing to the economy other than release a huge debt burden. So let's do that.
