One of these is considered so dangerous by the government that there are laws mandating that both speed and watt limits be baked into the controller. The other one can go as fast as the operator damn well pleases, but is merely *expected* to slow down when appropriate.
Also, one of these kills people every day and is very hard to see children or short adults in front of you when you're operating it.

One of my "favorite" facts about the Manhattan Project is that the film company Kodak was able to figure out that there were nuclear tests happening because the fallout left telltale effects on their film... 4000 miles away on New York.
The scientists at Kodak just sort of figured it out that these what they thought were purely theoretical weapons were being used while troubleshooting issues with film production. They went to the government like "Hey, are you all testing Nuclear bombs? Because we think /someone/ is testing nuclear bombs"
Which must have freaked the absolute shit out of whoever the first person in the government who knew about the Manhattan Project when they got this message.

Do they even realize that they literally have to make FOSS illegal if they want people to not be able to choose clients that don't spy on them (regardless of message transport)? The answer, of course, is no.
When you tinker with an ActivityPub project, what do you use to mock/simulate/check interaction correctness with another instance?
I'm trying to delete Twitter from my phone but there is some people I really want to continue to follow.
I'm looking to setup an instance of @BirdsiteLIVE to mirror those accounts here but for that I need access to legacy twitter apps, which I don't. I can port Birdsite to the V2 of the Twitter API, but I wonder if there is something similar already done?

Insight on Elon, Twitter, moderation, and generational concepts of free speech from Yishan, who has been in those trenches as CEO of Reddit. (Oh and the answer is funny)
