    I occasionally bumped into this dude and he has an impressive number of videos. To me, it is a case of an obvious idea to have, once someone had it.

      Definitely also requires the dedication. I’d bet he was not the first who has had that idea, but he was the first to do, and keep doing it.

        There’s this awesome dude on Twitch. Big old beard, used to gift games to his community consistently, consistent interaction, and last I checked he had maybe 4 people watching him. Dedication is good, though it’s really tough even being cool and likeable when luck just doesn’t give a fuck.

        As for me: ADHD rarely lets me stay in a community for longer than a few months, so I sorta fell out, as I do. Still, it’d be awesome if one day I saw him sitting with 20+ people.

        Edit: Just had a quick peek and only 5 people. :/

    we take our privileges for granted, but I’m glad this guy is providing a service to people who might not have the means to ask a dad for one reason or another.

      My dad wasn’t exactly great. He didn’t really care for my hobbies or anything, he was a classic provider who didn’t really wanted to raise kids.

      Last year i got a new guy in the flat underneath me. He was like 26 and asked me if i can hang his lamp. I said sure thing and did it. I hang up multiple things, set some stuff up and what have you. He asked so many questions and was in awe of my tools. I jokingly asked him if he never held a tool in his life. He said no, he never had a dad, he quite literally learned nothing about fixing things tools and all sorts of handyman things.

      Until this point i had no idea just how important it is to grow up with someone like that.

    Anyone see that lemmy community in all that is just some guy writing letters to his kids since his wife has a restraining order out on him? This gives me that kind of vibe.

    Fixing a running toilet was so much easier before gravity flow took over everything. I even bought a Japanese toilet recently because the gravity flow device in my standard American toilet just would.not.seal., even after replacing it. Thing was driving me nuts.

    So instead, I had my dad install a toilet for me! Go dad.

      Does your Japanese toilet have Bluetooth and wash your everything/too?

        I wish, but I didn’t have electric hookup available and didn’t want to call in an electrician, so it’s a pretty standard toilet aside from the flushing system (which works perfectly and doesn’t run!).

          Ah that’s a shame. Probably still built better though. Mines handle keeps failing and it stays down so it dumps my entire tank lol

            Having had a few of them with never so much as a minor running toilet, I would recommend Toto. They “just work”.

      Online slurs are just words they dont mean anything they probably make up the second largest portion of the internet after porn that is.

        I used to believe that “words are just words”, but the problem is that that pov only works in a “troll trolling trolls” setting. If you have other people who expect different things from online interactions, then you’re just creating a shit environment for everyone, which is the equivalent of walking around irl while showing people the middle finger

    YouTube is great in general. I remember as a teen going into college thinking that the changes were going to kill it but really the platform has a lot of great content for everything. Everything except gaming anyways, which is a bit ironic.

    Tutorials, cooking videos, engineering and math videos, historical discussions and theory.
