Grousing about generations and trauma, potentially a Bad take
I don't think when I'm 60-70 I'm going to be at all boomer-like. In fact, I'll go a step further and say that I don't think either millenials or Gen Z will ever go like that because there's more of a culture of empathy and also more self-awareness when it comes to trauma. At least we're starting to learn how to handle it ourselves and prevent generational trauma from perpetuating.
here's a good video about all the reasons you should never talk to the police: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-7o9xYp7eE
information the cop hears that helps you is inadmissible in court -- it's hearsay. but negative testimony by cops is absolutely admissible! and if you have a conversation with a cop, and later they lie / misremember what you said, then it's your word against theirs in court. people have been convicted on little-to-nothing but the testimony of a cop claiming you told them something incriminating.
hey fedizens (and especially niusers)! i built something!
it's a tool that can open a mastodon export archive and show you all of your toots and favorites (if they're available). it's still not perfect and needs substantial improvements, but i decided to publish it now, as niusers were asking questions about how to view export.
also i'll post updates at @meowViewer (report bugs there if you encounter them!). please boost!
she's out there writing free and open source software... :')
A friendly mastodon instance primarily for shitposting, gays, and the glory of the free and open source software movement.
