anxiety, kvetching 

I had a panicky day yesterday and am generally tired and wanting a nice distraction, but I can't find anything that's both 1.) open and 2.) sufficiently safe to do during COVID

Delete Chrome. Now.

Google is using its exceptionally powerful position to make *the browser itself* analyze your browsing behavior and serve that on a plate in the form of "cohorts" to anyone interested.

They are transforming Chrome into a "browsing-history-passport" - right now.

If you care about your intellectual freedom even a little bit, you must put Chrome out of your life as soon as possible. Support others doing the same.

These are the product of the "memory monetization machine," which surfaces your old social-media breadcrumbs as inventory for spot-market advertising auctions: "This user got married eight years ago, who will pay me top dollar to show them an ad?"

Question about Bibliothèque nationale de France book data identifiers 

this is such a niche question, but does anyone here know if BnF IDs for books are unique to works, editions, or both?

full offense to car owners but we could save millions of tons of emissions and thousands of lives by just mandating engine control modules with boring acceleration profiles and top speeds of 50 mph

I'm trying to update the Wikipedia page Training Bra with gender-inclusive language. However, they say I need some secondary sources to back me up.

I'm 30, AMAB, & Non-Binary. I'm taking hormones to grow boobs, and as such, I have to wear a bra for padding and to get used to it for when I eventually need it for support.

It would mean a lot to me if anyone here put out a toot, blog post, or anything else I can link to, showing that I'm not the only adult who needs bras in this way. Thank you!!

It’s helpful to remember how frustrated I was back in those days too so I don’t act like a condescending asshole to the junior folks. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Cause BOY was I frustrated
