Tinder and Bumble kinda suck tbh.
  • Exactly this… I used those swipey apps for a few years. Went on lots of dates. Had a few I could’ve taken further. Had a few I wanted to go further. It all was pretty shallow though.

    Eventually, I just went with someone I actually had known for years.

  • I don’t even know if there is necessarily a price. I think on some level, people just start to realize certain issues take priority over others, especially when you’re fighting the opposing party. You have to compromise on some things. If she were out there cutting down Biden every day over Israel, it’s going to make it hard for her to get other things done. It’s also going to make it more likely that Trump wins. You have to pick your battles, rather than spending all of your political capital on a single issue that she won’t be able to have enough impact to actually change.

    To a large extent, this problem is systemic. We have a two party system that doesn’t allow a ton of nuance. Also, politicians are involved, and politicians are always thinking about elections. I wish we could just vote on the issues themselves in our democracy.

    Who killed Danny Casolaro?

    Anyone recently watch the docuseries American Conspiracy about The Octopus Murders on Netflix? Any theories on who killed Danny Casolaro or any interesting information on some of his connections? I had never heard of the case before but, my god it’s like a rabbit hole that pulls you in.

    What makes the average Lemmy user smarter than the rest of the population?

    I’m always surprised by the quality of comments on Lemmy and the analysis provided, often by experts in their field. It gives a sense that the average Lemmy user is a lot smarter than the average member of the public.

    Also, when it comes to politics, I think the average Lemmy user is pretty perceptive of what real power dynamics are at play and what interests society should be looking to promote.

    It's been a pleasure to be on this platform with you all. Where do you all come from? And why is it so hard to find people like you in the real world?

    Anyone shop on Temu? What are your best finds?

    There can be a lot of junk on Temu admittedly, but it’s kind of fun to find a few deals.

    Found a pair of Leatherman Raptor shears ($99 USD) for $12

    Also found a Benchmade Follow Up Fixed Blade ($120 USD) for $16

    Bought a drone for $15. It’s not high quality, but it’s a drone, for $15. Fun to mess around and learn with.

    Anyone else find some deals? Or, got another suggestion besides Temu?

    Santa Cruz's downtown expansion plan is aimed for the lots that currently host Kaiser Permanente Arena, Ace Hardware and Firefly Coffee House.
