Probability of final victory according to the bookmakers during Euro 2024
  • Yeah, England has had some wonder goals for sure. And they made the final last time round. But especially in the group stage they looked really lost at times.

    I've been rooting for them for years now, but somehow I don't feel they're as scary as some of the other European national teams.

  • Probability of final victory according to the bookmakers during Euro 2024
  • I'm confused how England were the pre-tournament favourites anyway. They really had that much better odds than Germany/Spain/Portugal coming in? Strange.

  • CANVAS 2024 IS LIVE

    What happened to Lemmy Observer?
  • https://fedidb.org/software/lemmy/

    Lemmy observer was really good too but idk what happened to it.

  • The Code
  • It is different, but tbf academics are also reliant on external funding sources to conduct research. It's not absurd to think that the grant writers or university administration might have some stipulations about the free distribution of research they paid for.

    Have we forgotten what happened to Aaron Swartz? With the state of the world today, I naturally expect everything to be monetized, regardless of whether it makes any rational or ethical sense.

  • ‘New York learning about trash cans in 2024 is an insane flex’: Eric Adams trolled over wheelie bins ‘trash revolution’
  • But there's no practical way to enforce when people put out their trash.

    I may have been in NYC for too long, but I honestly don't even see how rats are a problem anyway. They generally just scavenge garbage and do their own thing. They're in a similar category to pigeons.

    Plus, they are presumably a critical food source for alley cats. I happened to stumble upon a newborn litter of alley kittens a few weeks ago. The mother must have been away hunting.

    So you're basically murdering these little kittens if you decimate the rat population in NYC by preventing them from eating our trash. You sick fucks. /s

  • Thanks, I added you as a mod

  • Spain - Germany 18:00
  • That was 100% a handball for me. Hand was extended from the body and blocked a shot on target. Cucurella even smirked afterwards, he knew he got away with one.

    Absolutely brutal officiating performance tbh. It started when he didn't give a yellow to Kroos in the 5th minute for the tackle that took Pedri out of the game. And then he ended up giving a ton of yellows later on in the game, for dubious reasons. Germany got robbed on that call but Spain still seem like the most deserving team to win the tournament so it's not the worst thing.

    If France beats Spain though, then the rage will flow. After benefitting from a missed call and scoring a miraculous goal to avoid penalties, you better make it count

    RESULTS - 2024 Instance Census for lemmy.nz
  • Cool stuff! Very extensive explanation of the results, thank you for that

  • Bigfoot
  • Definitely. That's an NYC dude on the NYC subway, can confirm

  • Whales
  • Yeah I guess, but that doesn't really help. Humans already killed most of the whales so rubbing in our technological superiority is quite gauche.

    You never know if whales are going to get revenge for this kind of stuff someday 😅

  • Is it possible to simulate a sensory deprivation tank in your bathtub?
  • Yeah that sounds nice. But what if you just ended up spending all of your time in the tank? It might be too much power to have a tank like that on tap

  • Is it possible to simulate a sensory deprivation tank in your bathtub?
  • Are you asking this because of Stranger Things?

    I think the biggest issue is that a bathtub isn't big enough for most people to float in without touching the sides. Assuming the tub is large enough, the epsom salt would work to make you float and would be cost effective. You would have to figure out a way to regulate the temperature to 98.6 degrees though. And you would have to be in a pitch dark room.

  • Whales
  • Fun fact: every species on earth has been evolving for the same amount of time. Assuming that life wasn't spontaneously generated multiple times on planet Earth, which seems relatively unlikely.

    For some reason, I feel oddly defensive about the whale being insulted. Suck on that you stupid marine biologist, you should understand evolution more better.

    A Distant Shout

    Vocals/Lyrics/Composition: Nakaido 'Chabo' Reichi

    lyrics

    ``` Even though I shouldn’t have any sins I’m accepting some sort of punishment Even though they aren’t seeds that I sown I’m made to pluck the flowers that bloomed prolifically

    I can’t say that I don’t know about it But I don’t recall having been an accomplice-in-crime I feel that my freedom was costly bought But I don’t recall having my heart sold cheaply

    Hey Hey, until I die and bid farewell Hey Hey, I won’t be caught by anyone I wonder if you don’t know about the eternal ruffians Who are prowling the distant night

    It’s not even an unforgivable act But wounds can’t be healed On nights when I feel like crying, I make love to a woman And take flight from this petty and corrupt world

    Hey Hey, until I die and bid farewell Hey Hey, I won’t be caught by anyone I wonder if you don’t know about the eternal ruffians Who are prowling the distant night

    Even though I shouldn’t have any sins I’m accepting some sort of punishment I feel that my freedom was costly bought But I don’t have the guts to sell my heart cheaply… ```

    How does this community feel about the legal treatment of AI art?

    www.wired.com Why This Award-Winning Piece of AI Art Can’t Be Copyrighted

    Matthew Allen’s AI art won first prize at the Colorado State Fair. But the US government has ruled it can’t be copyrighted because it’s too much “machine” and not enough “human.”

    Regarding Hexbear

    I didn't want to make an announcement about this but since there seems to be some confusion (to say the least), I feel that I must.

    You have almost certainly started seeing posts and comments from hexbear.net users in the past day or so. Long story short, when hexbear originally federated into Lemmy a few weeks ago, they left SJW off the list of instances they wanted to federate. A few days ago, hexbear users had a vote where they agreed to add SJW to their list of federated instances.

    Myself and TheDude were informed of this vote by the hexbear admins while it was in progress. We agreed that if hexbear voted in the affirmative, we would be amenable to federation and seeing how it turns out. Now, here we are.

    Hexbear is a Lemmy server that was created about 3 years ago as a new home for the former users of r/chapotraphouse. CTH was banned from reddit because they were openly calling for the deaths of slave owners, which reddit considered hate speech 🙄

    Hexbear is composed of leftists of all shapes and sizes, and they also have a special sensitivity to the struggles of marginalized groups, including but not limited to LGBTQ folk, the disabled, and gingers.

    Some things to know about hexbear: they removed downvotes from their platform. Therefore, they tend to make a lot of comments, because the only way to respond to something you disagree with is by commenting. This can give the impression of being brigaded, but that's not necessarily the case. Also, their custom emojis are displayed very large on other instances. This is a technical issue that will eventually be fixed.

    Of the major instances, Lemmy.world, lemmy.ca, feddit.de, and beehaw.org have defederated hexbear.

    SJW, Lemm.ee, and lemmy.ml are still federated with hexbear.

    I hope we can all get along, but obviously that's not going to be the case. I recommend that users from either server make use of the block function as necessary. More importantly, don't intentionally go to communities on the other server and attempt to antagonize them because you have a differing political stance. Some political debate is well and good, but there is a time and a place, and if you're not sure, it's probably best to keep it on your own server.

    We will be banning hexbears liberally if they come in here trying to start shit, and their admins will do the same regarding our users. Pun intended.

    Bottom line: we will not be defederating from hexbear in the immediate future. I personally believe they are a valuable asset to this platform, and I urge you all to give them a chance to contribute positively. If you find them annoying, just block them and/or report them; they are subject to the same rules of conduct as everyone else.

    Please direct any comments and concerns to this thread, or to the Agora.

    Advertising Lemmy on r/place

    Reddit has decided to run another edition of r/place in mid July for some unimaginable reason.

    https://sh.itjust.works/post/1387534

    It seems to me that it would be stupid to not at least attempt to advertise for Lemmy given the perfect opportunity. Many have expressed concerns about giving reddit more traffic, but a few thousand users is less than a rounding error to reddit. However, getting a few thousand more redditors to move to Lemmy would be great for us.

    Hopefully I can get a few sh.itheads to help in this noble endeavor. If not, at least I tried.

    I will try to scan both threads to get all of the candidates before we vote, but the Agora thread is the official discussion, this was just cross-posted for awareness.

    [Discussion] Let's create a banner for sh.itjust.works!

    The two obvious themes in my mind are gears/some sort of complex machine, or computer hardware/circuits.

    As an avid Lain Iwakura enjoyer, I added that screenshot because it's awesome and I think it'd be an extremely cool banner, but there are probably much cleaner designs out there that would be more welcoming to new users. I'm sure you guys will be able to come up with some in short order.

    You can look on lemmyverse.net to get a quick overview of some other instance banners.

    I really don’t know how the formatting and proportions are supposed to work but I will edit that in as soon as someone clarifies.

    [Announcement] TheDude has upgraded the server from 0.18.0 to 0.18.1 RC

    TheDude recently upgraded the server to the most recent version of Lemmy. You'll notice significant improvements to the user interface, and hopefully the functionality is also improved. There is no official changelog yet because this version is not yet finalized, but I'll link the GitHub releases page where it should eventually appear.

    https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/releases

    Edit: 0.18.1 is now fully released and we have upgraded to the final version. You can view the link above for the changelog.
