remember that time a north african merchant(?) named constantine was in italy and a guy in the hostel was sick and they called a doctor and constantine was like "uhh aren't you gonna take a urine sample" and the doctor was like "a what" and constantine was like "…" and the doctor was like "…" and then constantine africanus moved to the monastery of monte cassino and spent the rest of his life translating arabic medical texts into latin,

because i think about this probably every single week

gambling issues, request 

Are there any resources for problems with gambling or even just impulsive risk taking that ARE NOT twelve step nightmare cults?

I am not asking for a friend I am asking for a me, and while I can do a lot of self-CBT type stuff to figure out what my thought processes are and where I'm letting them run unsupervised, if there are some kind of like... habits I can build or something, it might be nice to be able to benefit from other people's experiences?

Until then, I've got a question for y'all:
What are some underrated games that didn't have a strong focus on violence while still telling a great story? (Undertale isn't really underrated but would otherwise count)
And what are some unconventional metroidvanias you like?

@LabB, my hackerspace, is going to throw a #solarpunk themed new years #dance party in #btv. When poking around on youtube, most of the explicitly "solarpunk" music is pretty ambienty. Which is cool, but not terribly danceable.

So, Fediverse, what songs would you put on a solarpunk dance mix?

it's called heavy metal because of the lead guitars

so, this may be a silly question but it's genuine, :boost_ok:

is there like a guide or tips somewhere for finding meatspace leftish community for socially anxious people who don't know their local area very well? how does one "get involved with their community", and also, what are warning signs/red flags to watch out for?

Euro Truck Simulator: Rise of Rome Expansion

It's like normal Euro Truck Simulator, except people keep setting up road tolls in Latin, you have to fill out customs paperwork on stone tablets, and people keep puncturing your tires with spears for some reason.

Hi does anyone know of any android clock apps that can run intentionally slow for non-24 hour sleep cycle ppl? Or something else like that?

that moment when you want to say a word but you realize you've actually never heard it pronounced out loud before, so you're not sure if the way you've been mentally pronouncing it for the last five years is correct or you've been saying it weird all this time, so you decide to not say that word and find a synonym instead

Image description of my last boost (Hose to HDMI adapter) 

Someone connects an HDMI adapter that they've 3d printed on to the end of a hosepipe. Then they connect the other end to their laptop via the HDMI port. Then they turn on the tap, and water starts gushing out of the laptop from behind the screen, where it's being pushed up by the pressure of water entering via the HDMI port. It's uhhh quite something.
