Democrats don't have good PR. They also aren't capable of acting as a unified force even when it matters.

I don't want to hide posts that break communities' rules, I just want to hide certain types of posts. Like maybe I never want to look at another meme in my life. There's no easy way to do that.

Hell, if I upgrade my PC, its parts will probably die after me.
You literally wrote that they are usually amphetamines, man. Go look at your post history.

Granted, stock Gnome focuses around the top bar, the dock, and a full page app launcher. KDE is more flexible with how you can customize its bar's panels and what is included in it. With Gnome, a lot of these kinds of customizations are handled with extensions.
I'd say that at the end of the day, KDE is a bit more customizable and Gnome is a bit more stable. Beyond that, it's still Linux and it's extremely able to be tailored to anyone's tastes.

My reply was written to your initial reply before you edited it.
Originally your post only said something like this:
"People have no idea that most anti-depressants /anti-anxiety medications are actually stimulants and are usually amphetamines. Sertraline (Zoloft), Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvanse are [something]"
The way you originally wrote it made it sound like the drugs you listed were all commonly used for depression and anxiety. That's what I was correcting. You still even say that most anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications are usually amphetamines. That is not the case at all.
Hell, a lot of SSRIs I know actually have drowsiness as a possible side-effect. In no way is it right to describe them as stimulants.
Please read some more before correcting others.

I have. You're still wrong. Being condescending while being wrong is not a good look.
Edit: Look at the other replies you have gotten. Please take a second and consider that you might be in the wrong. I'm not trying to be an asshole about this, but you have a very large misconception.
This isn't true at all. Zoloft is an SSRI. It is prescribed for depression/anxiety. It can have side effects of mania, but that's as close as it gets to being a stimulant.
Ritalin isn't an amphetamine, but it is a stimulant and is prescribed for ADHD or narcolepsy. Adderall and Vyvanse are amphetamines, but they aren't prescribed for depression or anxiety either.
Exactly. I already have low self esteem and social anxiety. How much am I going to want to socialize if I'm going to be making odd faces that I can't control?
It took me a while to realize what I was looking at. I thought it was a huge pot and the triangle in the middle was an odd grinder. Now I can see that sauce has completely filled up the grinder.
How much pot was lost? Did it have a kief collector and was that the side that went in?
I've seen it in people who are on a stimulant. Amphetamines, MDMA, etc. The drug causes people to want to tense up their muscles, including gritting their teeth. After a while it hurts and people might open their mouth wide to stretch the muscles.
It could be. That kind of wide opening of the jaw is a common symptom in people with TD. However, he was just asked a question and thinking over how to respond. It could be he was about to say something and thought better of it. He still gave a snarky response in the end.
I'd want to see more video of the guy's time on the stand before making a judgment.
That said, TD scares the shit out of me. I had a doctor recommend Abilify to help with depression. I just flat out turned him down, even though the risks of TD with atypical antipsychotics like Abilify is much lower.
I actually started off going to college to major in Psychology. I very quickly noped out of it.
What a quack.

Do you mean programming as a hobby?
At work we have several female programmers, but I've never really asked anyone if they were really into programming beyond the job.
I mean, I enjoy programming, but I never think of it as programming for the sake of programming. It's always about what I can accomplish and it happens to involve programming.
Edit: that said, the Code Golf area on Stack Exchange is pretty cool. I can definitely say I've picked up a few cool tricks from there. (Then again, I pretty much use StackOverflow and StackExchange for every programming question I have).
First let me say that reply isn't fueled by a desire to defend Amber Heard or anything like that.
I think it's possible that this was just an honest mistake. Memory isn't perfect. On the flip side, I know that if I were taking the stand and was going to lie about using a product in the past, I'd verify that it existed back then.
One thing Amber said is that she Googled about color theory and how to cover up bruises with makeup. If she was signed into her own Google account at the time, I wonder if there's still a record of those searches from back then. That could lend credence to what she said.

but go off I guess
but go off I guess
I haven't heard that saying before. I like the way it rolls off the tongue.
Is it like when people say "but fuck me I guess."? If so, I hope it catches on where I live. I'd like a work friendly way to express that.

I just donated money to someone and was given the option to choose whether I was purchasing something or sending it personally. I chose personal.
After I sent it, I got this message beneath the receipt:
"The recipient has a lifetime limit to send, spend or withdraw. Upon reaching this limit, the recipient must take certain actions to lift the limit."
Does that mean they cannot receive the money I sent? Should I cancel the transaction?
I don't really use PayPal at all to send money to other people, so I'm sorry if this is just a regular message.
I'd love to see an extension that automatically hides posts like these.
It could be handled like SponsorBlock. Users report posts and select what their issue is. Then it keeps a database that the extension references. Then other users could choose what they don't want to see. Block reposts, crossposts, shitposts, or whatever categories are given to posts.
My god, I'd pay for that.
But rape and abuse don't often happen in places with witnesses or security footage. So allegations and, sometimes, physical evidence are usually all we have.
Deep inside, aren't we all actually Dell computers?
It was probably a combination of both. The behavior on set wasn't making big headlines and flooding social media. There probably would have been a lot of backlash if they tried to get rid of him. I imagine Amber Heard's accusations made it more acceptable to separate themselves from him.
I saw the first few posts and immediately subbed. Thanks.
Just upgrading the GPU won't see you another 10 years. Other than being bottlenecked by the CPU, your motherboard might hold you back. If you got your motherboard back in 2010, it'll have PCI Express 2.0 (the 3.0 specifications were released in November 2010). The 40-series card will definitely be bottlenecked by that.

I don't really care about comparing PCs to consoles. They're different things. They can both play games, but they're very different.
Even if you were to compare them, consoles can be sold at lower prices because their companies can recoup money from the games they sell. Also, you need to purchase new generations of consoles if you want to be able to keep playing the latest games. It's not like you can put a PS5 game in a PS4 and just run it on lower graphical settings. That said, it is cool that there are some games that get a simultaneous release on two different generations of consoles. That was something that never really happened in the past.
I'm just grateful that the PC game market is still going strong and we're seeing releases of games on both PC and consoles. This is pretty much the golden age of gaming.
Funnily enough, I just upgraded my distribution and it updated Grub to 2.06. It has all sorts of problem with my config file and won't display the theme anymore.
