Discourse allows to have RSS feed from the forum. Since it's not very active, what would you think of putting a bot on mastodon for the posts/topic?
We could, if we don't want to spam, group them in daily digests.

Out of curiosity, I searched on youtube "theory of evolution". Out of the first 20 results, 4 were about trying to prove that evolution is a myth, and it never happened.

Then I tried in Italian, "Teoria dell'evoluzione". 9 results of the first 20 were about "debunking" the theory of evolution.

I'm not sure this is related to my personal feed, but I found it interesting. It's almost half of the results in Italian!

Dear fediverse,
could you recommend me a program for pagination? I'm on debian and never had to do such work before.

I'm not sure I see the point of when you can have the ...

Our Fair City is a distopyan podcast. In a post-apocaliptyc world, people live underground because the conditions are so cold outside, and Hartlife, a benevolent corporation, manages everything with genetic experiments and some not-that veiled dictatorship.

I loved the sound quality, the acting is great and the plot is so much fun.

There is also science. And rebel, mad scientists. Those are my favorite of course.

Quoting Dr. Herbert West,
"Never let vengeance, justice, ethics or common decency stand in the way of scientific discovery".

Give it a try!


@Surasanji @freemo regarding
AnttonioPerez can we maybe ask him to stop posting links to ticket selling websites?
I opened a discussion for it here if you want: discourse.qoto.org/t/report-27

Today at my conservation genetics class my professor put this video in the projector. As i Understand is pretty famous, but I've never seen this before, it hit me.


Dear people,
would you recommend me some ?
Any period, any style, any country, really classical, or experimental, whatever. Whole symphonies or just single movements.
Just give it to me!

I passed by the yesterday here in Naples. I really can't feel like I belong to this movement.

* I don't like slogans, and the ones I heard were pretty violent, including death threats to right wing people, and far left typical songs.
Anger was the feeling I perceived the most, which may biased because angry people shout the most.

* People knew a lot about climate and environment. That is, until you ask questions. There is no place for doubts in this climate action.

* The traffic was stopped by a human wall. I had to exchange insults and raise my bicycle to get past the fu**ing barricade.

* I do not know how to feel when kids, like 12 yo, engage in such political actions. I still feel like they are too young to really get what's happening.

I'd like to repost a picture that @freemo posted a long while ago

Anyone know ( @Gargron ) how to get in touch with joinmastodon? Me and several others have been trying to reach them for over a month now and no response of any kind. Is the organization dead? They certainly dont seem to answer at their official email address. I've verified this with several people now who have reached out to them.

Letting everyone know we updated the ToS on . Nothing has changed with regard to the rules of the server, we just wanted to clarify some points a bit better, specifically our policy on federating with other servers.

There should be some kind of Parental Advisory notice for love stories with a painful breakup.

Wolf359 is a scripted -fi of an amazing quality: from the very crisp sound to the engaging story. It's the first podcast story I fell in love for.

It is 61 episodes long (plus numerous little spin offs), and is finished so don't worry, you won't be let down by an interrupted series.


If you feel 61 episodes is too long and want a taste of the quality, you can give Time bombs a go: 3 episodes of 20 minutes from (more or less) the same team of wolf359

Please, do yourself a favour and watch this 70s video on how the proteins are assembled using DNA.
Either you already know that or you have no clue what's happening, I'm flabbergasted. It was recommended to me from an online biology course I'm taking with the MIT.


A cell is small, but how small? Like, compared to other stuff?

A simple but cool interactive tool to explore scale I'm enjoying right now =D


A few years ago I thought that not being able to even draw a cloud was a very silly limit, and decided to try to get past it - and see how long it would have taken me.

Here are some pictures, from time 0 (before starting to study) to around 20 hours of studying and trying.
Feel free to laugh at my time 0 drawing, it's ridiculous, I know. I'm still bad at it, but it felt good to overcome a mental obstacle. Oftentimes, it takes less than one may think!

Hi @freemo , a small question for when you have time: how did you find discourse so far, in terms of maintenace?

I managed a phpbb community, I'd just like something where I do not have to mess with the code, and I do not have to put the whole community in standby when there is an update as some plugin will likely break.
Is it giving you many headaches, so far?

Wednesday: You are not so smart is a brilliant podcast about the research behind decision making, biases, how people change their minds, tribalism, how you fool yourself and confabulate post hoc reasons for your behaviour and more.

Personally, I'm a long time fan and it changed my perception of my self in a decisive way. Way more humble about how sure I am about my ideas.

Give it a shot!
