    Can I detect my SO's presence just by smell / pheromone ?
  • Probably not. The studies on human pheromones is inconclusive at best, the space is full of snake oil and hucksters (further discrediting it), and you may be having a psychosomatic effect.

    Is the shine coming off Japan's bullet trains?
  • This is not a Japan problem. The only time a European system got sold outside Europe was Korea's KTX, which is a dead ringer from the TGV. The Texas Central Railway was the closest we got to seeing a Japanese bullet train and that proposal is probably dead.

    Europe's rail density still promotes Intercity and Regional rail and that's a business Alstom bought into by hook or crook. And they and SNCF, DB etc fight to keep that same graded rail for their bullet trains and intercity over maglev. This isn't going to change, because speed changes stem from capacity, not technical preference. Europe doesn't have the problems Japan has with capacity stemming from density.

    How do I start same-sex dating and romance?
  • I have lived here all my life and I've been sick of it for a long time now (for non-sexual orientation reasons). One of the reasons I never really left it, was my father. He passed away last year from dementia-related causes, and that kinda lined up with some personal desires. Atlanta is a gay mecca and I have considered going back to Atlanta, I really miss it so. But at the same time, I've visited Colorado and its beautiful out there. I know I should stay here and try to fix things, but I'm in a purple city, Nashville is increasingly expensive (Colorado more so, I am aware), and I don't like it here anymore for many reasons.

    I failed to address the other point of the comment so here goes: There's a lot I could be doing to help LGBT people here, but my abilities are really limited outside of advocacy and financial support (which I do) by the makeup of the state assembly, and the politicization of the issue being used to gerrymander and twist the legislative. This is a problem all through the South, where purple cities are bastions of sanity. Tennessee isn't like Georgia, where the tide has pretty much shifted even in rural/suburban areas. It would be a long fight, and i'm not wanting to waste the second half of my life on it, its not guaranteed I can shift things. Anything I can do from the outside for the younger generation to fix it, I will do.

  • I've been fighting off writing this for a while now. I even considered making a throwaway for it, but I guess if its too embarrassing I can delete it.

    I've sorta come to accept I'm bi in recent years, and I am wondering how I should go about dating and courtship in regards to dating within my same sex (male). Especially since I find femininity to be a key attraction point. I also haven't dated or had sex in like, three years or more. Its been a while, I kinda stopped caring for myself and focused on work, I am slowly trying to become an interesting person again, get back in shape but its hard. I dunno, man. I'm in my mid-30s and I am trying to figure out what I want out of the world. There's a bit of lust involved. And I definitely need a hug at the very least.

    Furthermore, I live in the Southern part of the US, and the amount of trans hate has me actively wanting out of here (I'm aiming for Colorado) and dating in this part of the Southeast is already difficult as is, in my prior experiences.

    How does one navigate this kind of world after coming out? How do I deal with the stigma especially since in the states, there's a renewed interest in putting people back in the closet?

  • I remember maybe a decade or more ago some enterprising gent made a glasses design with some kind of resin in the lens, so the wearer could adjust the lens thickness to fit their needs. Nobody would back his invention so he created a non-profit to fund these glasses for the developing world. I'd love to know what happened to it because its still something I care about supporting.

    Not sure if this is the right place, I didn't see a 7CupsOfTea on lemmy. If this is out of scope, let me know and i'll move/delete it.

    For a while i've been doing game development and I have been thinking to both better develop my skillsets and engage with the community, streaming my development on YouTube or Twitch. The problem is, I am not really photogenic (i'm out of shape and working on it) and I don't think people would be interested following just another development streamer.

    Also, I want a female avatar, which makes little sense as someone who identifies as a man (bi at that), which has me really self-conscious and worrying i'll be accused of sexism or egg. I've seen males using female models and don't care anyways. I'd also have to pay for a model or make one in VRoid, and i'm all so green to it. Not that I don't mind!

    So, I dunno. I wish there were some tips for this to help me figure out if this is worth doing.


    Alt text: Screenshot from YouTube that says the following:

    I am 57. Not only does it feel like "something wicked this way comes" but there is also this feeling that the whole world is holding it's breath. Almost as though we are all waiting for some catalyst or sign or event that puts an end to this feeling of being put on hold. This vague, unexplained unease we feel. Something terrible lurking just out of our field of vision but we all feel it closing in. I cannot count the number of people who have told me they wish that whatever is going to happen would just get on with it. That this waiting for the thing in the darkness is unbearable.

    87 Nokia tells Reddit it might be infringing on Nokia's patents.

    In an amended SEC filing ahead of its IPO, Reddit warned potential investors that "...on March 18, 2024, Nokia Technologies sent us a letter indicating they believed that Reddit infringes certain of their patents. We will evaluate their claims." Nokia, of course, leaned into, ahem, patent licensing

    I can't believe I have to defend reddit for once.

    Its pretty much in the title. In university I really didn't pay attention in our Ethics class because it focused on patents and Therac-25 studies, and I feel like with the way things are going as a software developer, we should have a clearer understanding of the philosophy and impact of ethical ramifications besides "AI bad," and I saw this as someone who sees Generative AI as very bad. Any recommendations on courses, books, videos, anything; would be great. Thanks.
