A very interesting angle on the idea which is dominant nowadays that the capitalism is the best tool we got out there and the only one which works. This is more and more disturbing that instead of rational and weighted discourse about the possible ways of organizing the society so all the people can benefit from it, not only the luckiest one, humans select emotional evaluation of the problem (like all the socialistic experiments were a disaster, hence all socialism ideas equal evil and vise versa - the capitalistic organisation is the best because this is all I know and trying something new is scary af). Actually in this video it is very well explained, how capitalism is super successful in selling this plot too.

Can you see these little clouds there on the pictures too? Wow, this is unbelievable.. 😲 Can't believe it is real.. And this is a Saturn's Moon relatively close to us. What else can wait us in other places throughout our calm island - Solar system and unpredictable vast Universe? There are way more mysterious and unimaginable objects out there like quasars or black stars... way more fantastic than any Human mind can possibly come up with.. And yet Humans are only known species so far which have a unique potential: not only to be able to craft the tools to discover how this world works, but also to realize an opportunity they have - to live in such beautiful world and enjoy this one chance at full. Isn't it what we should do instead of fighting or compete with each other? To use our potentials at max? Hope there's still a chance..

For those curios here's the image:


By the way I love these posts of your Roma! Keep on being a human. Share your thoughts more often too 😀

And yes, Titan is one of the most earth-like place that we know of, in terms of how it looks like: clouds, rain, mountains, lakes and rivers. But all methane. Which makes you wonder....can a different life based on methane have evolved there? We should focus on these mind blowing mysteries, help send some probes there, enjoy these pieces of knowledge, and so forth. I wish our species was intelligent.
Thanks man! It is a pleasure to share when there's such a topic to think about.. And thanks for helping with the image. I did it myself, but it didn't appear it seems.. weird.

Btw, another one is cool too 😜

If you need a quality setup of the free and open source project, ask @Tio, señor knows his onions 😎

By the way if anyone wants a Mastodon server I provide via https://webape.site - I am already getting new requests and will take a few days to process new ones, but if you want one you can simply pay and have it all setup. Backups included.

Mind you I also provide trade-free services via trom.tf and lots of stuff via tromsite.com. WebApe is to allow me to support these free projects.

Via WebApe I also provide Friendica instances, Peertube, or Nextcloud.

Please share if you think this is helpful for others.

Laptop Donation Campaign - https://www.tromsite.com/tromlaptop/

By Tio:

This is a donation campaign to help me, Tio, buy a new laptop that will allow me to become more mobile while having all I need to work on TROM and its baby projects. Please see the donation campaign for a detailed explanation and help if you can.

Basically I need to take what is in this photo (except those galaxies):

With all of the shoeboxes full of HDDs and cables:

And put it into this:

Thank you very much if you can help out! 😀

This is absolutely astonishing image! You can even notice a protoplanetary disk of newly forming star system there.. How cool is that?

I'm starting a new video series about hiking the GR11 (an 840-km thru-hike across the Pyrenees) on a very tight budget.
Here is the first video: https://videos.trom.tf/w/bscuS7uYA2PYVJWoa7h1qw
It's me packing my Ultraheavy backpack 😁

I'm just really glad that fediverse is not into this attention trading business, no ads and algorithm here. Just the lack of these 2 things make a big difference, I feel like I'm in control of my online presence here.

Can't thank enough the communities of Fediverse for bringing these awesome projects to the world, feels like a fresh air after all the big farty ad spitting dumpsters 😆
I personally admire an ability to choose between literally dozens of the ways to communicate by selecting specific implementation like Mastodon, Friendica, Pleroma, etc. with all the different ways to organize news feeds, size of the messages, etc. and after all staying connected with all your peeps which may choose another project to stick with and all of that because of the unified protocol. This is fuckin amazing and liberating..

Nord Stream rupture may mark biggest single methane release ever recorded, U.N. says


Another biggest technogenic catastrophy currently passes below the radars and one of the many negative outcomes of the war and an outdated system of international relationships.

Hm, weird. Seems like it heavily depends on the front-end. I've checked out in Tootle which is originally a mastodon client and it looks entirely opposite there (without title at all but with the text) 😄

Anyway, I will try to ignore the titles then.

Our problems might have been solved by engineering


Like Jacque said many times: most of our problems have an engineering nature. Too bad in the trade-based world solving them is not a Humanity's first priority..

UPD: This video should be considered as an illustration of the interesting engineering ideas and as a possibility to questionize a structure and efficiency of the existing cities, towns, villages and not in any circumstances as a project to be supported or invested in, since it might be just yet another scammy project promising "the revolution" but without any real intention to do it. See this criticizing video: https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=rB_X5ZUcZlE

hm...unfortunately I think this is quite a "scammy" thing. Sounds good in theory, except for the last part where they talk positively about trade, but I recommend you also watch this video https://ytb.trom.tf/watch?v=rB_X5ZUcZlE 😛

Unfortunately many companies are very good to lure us in, and I got sucked into a bunch of these too...impractical, money oriented, scams. I only recently found out about the above one, but sounds like many other projects I've heard of.

Anyway, if you have the time also watch the video I sent you.

I agree with what you said, but I am skeptical about this "LINE" thing.

You know why it's pointless to debate "socialism" or "utopia" or whatever comparison people throw out when you criticize market capitalism? Because the system, in and of itself, without the need for comparison, is insufficient to be sustainable for the species. #systemsscience pic.twitter.com/SxDQsaKM7m

Absolutely nothing worse than a child in poverty. No better way to mess up human beings for their entire life than have them raised in deprivation, exposed to the characteristics we know empirically occur disproportionally in those low income environments.slate.com/news-and-polit…

France and Germany evaded arms embargo to sell weapons to Russia


This is exact thing I was talking about these days. You cannot be "nice" in this system, you need to make a profit to go on. You can say a thousand of words how you support peace, but when it comes to the profit, you keep selling the weapons, helping others to kill.

there you go...what a fuckery. and how am I not surprised again...

Our latest TROMcast about War can be watched here - https://link.trom.tf/ZB441 . Very nice to see new faces. We will try to make more TROMcasts in the future. Busy with the TROM II documentary for now, but after that we should make more. #tromlive




Tomorrow we will have a live. TROMcast is back. We will discuss "war" as the topic, with the focus on the current events. We will stream at https://www.tromsite.com/live/ where we will also have a live chat.



Anyone can join. #tromlive
