  • I don’t believe that, it’s not classified information. Maybe if you then distributed the personal information, but they redacted whatever is shown. If it was classified information, then it’d be illegal.

    That’s like saying if you read a piece of paper you found outside and it’s got personal information, you just broke the law. I’m not a lawyer but I don’t think clicking a link from Google and reading unclassified documents is illegal in any way.

  • BP-owned company is selling carbon credits on trees that aren’t in danger, analysis finds
  • True, but I wonder how much is retained vs released. You can get little fungus CO2 generators so I assume a significant amount is released.

    IIRC, the reason old trees were able to sink carbon into oil was because they sunk underwater and didn’t decompose in an aerobic manner. Gotta get that carbon back into the deep underground somehow.

  • People are just now finding out that there are 27 letters to the alphabet
  • It’s & - ampersand aka “and per se and”. The article also mentions these:

    lost letters include thorn (þ) – a soft "th" sound – and Wynn (ƿ), which was replaced by "uu", before this was superseded by "w". Ethel (Œ) – pronounced like the "oi" in "oil" – has also been lost, in favor of using vowel combinations to get the same job done. Yogh (ȝ) was briefly a way to denote the "ch" sounds, as found at the end of "loch", but was soon abandoned, and the specific sound it denotes rarely used in English anymore.

  • What was the first effective cure for a disease in history?
  • Saying consuming vitamin c is the cure for vitamin c deficiency is like saying water is the cure for dehydration.

    If that’s the standard for “cures” then animals figured out the cure for dehydration before humans even existed.

  • What was the first effective cure for a disease in history?
  • Going to stake out a position on this one- also not a cure, you’re just stopping the spread of disease. The limb you just cut off is not cured in any form. Those bacteria are living just fine.

    It’s like cutting a firebreak in the woods during a wildfire, it’s not actually putting out the fire, just containing it. Maybe I’m being too pedantic, but many of these examples do not seem like cures to me.

    If you think my idea of "cure" sucks just tell me, don't drive by downvote. I could be wrong, it's happened many times before. I'm here for a discussion, maybe you can change my view. It's just IMO, many of these are not cures.

    Transfer favorite communities between accounts?

    Is it possible to transfer favorite communities from an account on one server to another? Say for example I'd like to have an alt with the same favorites on another server for a backup. Is this possible with wefwef or other means?

    Looking to get my main off lemmy.world to help load balance, but I don't want to refavorite everything; if I could somehow keep them in sync that would be ideal.
