What are some things that every computer user should learn? What things do you wish every computer user knew? What are some of the biggest benefits that individuals and/or society could reap if computer users learned these things?

Please boost, I honestly want as many serious answers as possible. Feel free to answer variations of the question for different levels of "computer users", such as programmers, office workers who use a computer 4+ hours per day, phone-only users, etc.

Ignore the vegans and their bad science.

Here's the truth about meat, cancer, heart disease, inflammation, and the environment.

It’s annoying when people say certain exercises are bad or dangerous. The injury risk for resistance training is very low (2-4 /1000 hours). Meanwhile, over 80% of adults don’t lift at all. That’s where the real risk lies. Stop creating more barriers!

There is no excuse for not knowing how to do this if you are in any type of technical field.

Anime floppy disks, a thread:

Dear language developers/documenters. Please show us quickly how to write tests in your language. The 1st example after the `hello world` should be `hello_world_test` and ever example after that should have a test to go along with it. The first think any serious developer is going to want to do with your language is set up a work flow, so put this information front and center. Additional, tests show clearly how code is to be used and the expected result far better than any man-made doc.

Just so this is clear to everyone using the REPL is *NOT* !

@RTodorov@twitter.com Though every agile method until recently was built on shorter feedback loops, so it's hard to call one better than the other.

We'd never accept a show that encouraged people to explore whether flammable chemicals might be better at putting out fires than water & fire extinguishers. But for some reason, when it comes to people's health & wellbeing, we're all BRING ON THE FACE NEEDLES!

To all the addicts, remember to get up before dawn to have your coffee and avoid the withdrawal headache during the fast.

Do you like #emacs? Check out my internet buddy @yisraeldov - they have a whole channel on YouTube & #lbry you can check out, and a playlist just for #emacs fun.

Fair warning, if you're an evil martian, there will be some healthy mockery.

Are these laptops from @PINE64 any good? They don't seem to have much memory, can you even run a browser and emacs in them? Doing development seems like it would be more than they can handle. Browse and emacs and JVM just will need more than 4GB of ram.

@xahlee for to really work it needs to be able to federate with twitter. They need to see this a backwards compatibility. This is one of the things that is great about / is that it can federate with other protocols like IRC and slack 🤢
