> Video games are a ubiquitous part of almost all children’s and adolescents’ lives, with 97% playing for at least one hour per day in the United States.
I was kind of amazed by this statistic... are kids really playing this much? Is it too much? Implications?

The interrobang is basically a combination of a question mark and exclamation mark and question mark as one symbol; instead of "!?", it is "‽", or "!?!?!?" it is "‽‽‽".
Many people have adopted the "/s" to indicate sarcasm as a shorthand, I think there was a symbol created for that but it hasn't caught on as much.
What other alternative punctuation do you think would be useful?
> The Apostles' Fast, also called the Fast of the Holy Apostles, the Fast of Peter and Paul, or sometimes St. Peter's Fast, or sometimes, The Fast of Rafik,[1] is a fast observed by Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Eastern Catholic Christians. The fast begins on the second Monday after Pentecost (the day after All Saints' Sunday) and continues until the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul on June 29, according to the Eastern Orthodox liturgical calendar.

Likewise, should such loans be required to be interest-free?
Is this an age-related issue, as many young people were fraudulently led to take on unnecessary loans?
(Personal disclosure: I have no student debt, but think this indirectly impacts me whether in dating people with debt or friends, or simply as living in a society with people who are harmed by unnecessary and excessive debts)

I saw a vid pop up about how this distro could be the "end of distro hopping", by which I think they have a simple installer and can run lots of software
(Ubuntu based currently, moving to Debian eventually as a base)

btw, off topic but I'm looking at my notifications and there are a lot of duplicates, which I thought was some kind of error of multiple people accidentally posting things, but I'm wondering if there's some kind of duplicate notifications going on

I like that it's a little faster and therefore practical over regular handwriting
shorthand of some kind is even faster
it's also a kind of lost art like calligraphy

has it worked for you? I haven't tried it, looks like it works for some people, and seems like it could have a (perhaps unknown) scientific basis for why it works

yeah, sometimes I just post things to think about the concept
on this one I see pros and cons
this actual project might be objected to like you mention due to the board being a bit "iffy"
is the carless community concept useful?
or is it something that is a sign of things declining?
I can go both ways on this, either we should make personal transportation like cars cheaper and more eco-friendly, or if they are too costly and environmentally intensive, then perhaps we should seek alternative arrangements and designs

thanks for the heads up, I just noticed it suddenly became quieter
I did join chats but didn't end up really reading or participating (intended to, but never got around to it)
what would you describe the site as being about currently? I just saw it linked from scored conpro so idk if anything has change over time, is there like an about page I should re-read?

I just happened to see something too, otherwise it's my first year hearing of it (or I might have heard of it before but didn't really check it out)
Did anyone snag anything good?
I might swing by a local store to check the aftermath

curious about people's thoughts on this
not sure if it works or not, and the science of how it works is unclear if it does work. The idea is that it takes electricity or something from the air and this helps plants to grow?
