No Stupid Questions
Newbie Questions: 1. Finding topics and 2. does federation imply smallness
I'm assuming this instance will only host some topics, which is all good. (Thank you for doing this at all!) 1. How do I find topics I'm interested in? For example, I liked r/shortcuts but don't know where I'd find that in the fediverse. 2. If topics are hosted at many different instances, then even if technically anyone can participate in ones hosted elsewhere, does that imply that they'll all have their own version of r/funny etc? And they'll never achieve as much scale? (I do realize that reddit also allowed for that redundancy, and it worked just fine... I guess I'm wondering how that challenge/opportunity PLUS some aspect of tribalism would play out...) Cheers!

How does human (labour) trafficking differ than regular old migrant labor?
Best I can come up with is that if the conditions are too bad then it's human trafficking. In both case they "consent" to do labor, however human traffickees are often tricked into a more casino-like raw deal. In both cases, it's not uncommon to not be unable to quit the job. Source: I know a lot of migrant labourers

Does anyone have a gpt prompt that makes gpt opinionated? Like giving me 1 answer and not telling me both sides. Like AI from every work of fiction

what drugs do libertarians do?

To type in letters with accents, i’m suppose to use a ‘compose’ key. My keyboard doesnt have a compose key. Any easy solutions that isnt like copying and pasting the letter from wikipedia?
cross-posted from: > Changing keyboard layouts also sounds annoying considering it's not like i'm entering accents everyday > > On windows it was like ctrl + alt + numpad 1 + . for accents or something, no compose key required

Nursing an injury and found instructions on a skater site. The skater site said: "i know you won't go to a dr since you're a skater" Why don't they go to drs? I don't go to drs due to being poor.
