This is a Dengist community in favor of Bashar al-Assad with no information that can lead to the arrest of Hillary Clinton, our fellow liberal and queen. This community is not ironic. We are Marxists-Leninists.

For anyone that doesn’t wear glasses and doesn’t know how they’re made, this is how, for myopia.
Frames are one thing, they are made by Luxottica for all brands and are overpriced because of their monopoly. They’re not bad quality, just overpriced. They have to be light because you wear them all day, and they have to be resistant in case of damage. They also have to fit your face and that’s why they’re made of plastic that gets malleable when heated up.
Lenses however are another thing entirely. Not only do you have myopia correction, you have astigmatism correction too for some people as well as a third correction that I forget. You have the lens thickness index, if you don’t want them to be super thick and stick out of the frames. You have the view angle, so that you can look everywhere on the lens, I.e. All of it is useful and not just the centre. They also treat the lenses against scratches, water, fog, etc. Which works good for a bit but is a godsend when you wear them 24/7. And of course they have to know your eye distance so they focus the lenses on the right part so you can look out without a headache, so it feels natural.
And that’s just the “basic” myopia lenses. But remember I talked about looking out through the whole lens and not just in the middle of it? If you’ve seen glasses recently, you’ve seen that the sockets in the frames are not entirely straight, but they curve back on the edges. This means we’re not making a disc where the correction is the same everywhere, we are making a sphere with different corrections because some surface of the lens is closer to your eyes and some is farther; the math is increasingly complicated for this shape.
Oh and you have to get the lens right the first time otherwise the shop will send it back which costs you money to fix. And I’m out of glasses every time you make adjustments to them.
And you have to do it twice, because we have two eyes, and they might not have the same correction at all.
I also believe lenses are a bit overpriced, because there’s not many labs making them, but it is definitely valuable when you get all that and it is not something you can just do in your backyard.
I don’t even want to make fun of these people, it’d be like picking on a little kid.
its like if occam’s razor was a political belief everything they believe is so simple and so childlike
These are the same people saying promoting literacy harms oral traditions…
but there is no way in hell they would sit and listen to an elder, or anyone, for 5 hours either.
" i wanna collaborate with the bourgeoisie of imperialist nations to destabilize our anarchist non-state"
“hey i like collaborating with the bourgeoisie and getting sweet kickbacks too, let’s work together”
" k thx"
They don’t see the problem, do they?
What about insulin?
Fuck it. Diabetics are going back to starvation diets for treatment or they’re authoritarian /s
Guy who makes insulin: “Hey, anybody need some of this? I made some extra.”
Diabetic: “I do, thanks!”
Look I’ll just take some sand and heat it up over a campfire to make glass and then pour it into a flower pot and attach them to wooden sticks see easy glasses

Unfortunately, the discourse has now moved to “restaurants are authoritarian”
Coming up next: “is light authoritarian?”
twitter_hot_take_generator_78237: “Okay, its clear that restaurants are authoritarian. But what about eating in general? Its actually a bit complicated… a :thread:”
“Existence is authoritarian. Did my mom ask my permission to conceive me? Damn you mom!”
the world is authoritarian, like until now we couldn’t have gone anywhere else (other planets) sounds like a prison to me
You are right! I suggest collective suicide to own the tankies!
Me when my mum makes me eat vegetables like:
@PortlandsAnarchistiestAnarchist: “I don’t ever remember giving my gastric acid permission to digest the food I just ate. Sounds kinda authoritarian, if you ask me”
Once you get to a special age your gastric acid attacks back with reflux after being exploited for so long. This is why we won’t need antacid medication under anarchism.
Yes, down with the Sun. Actually, if you think enough, entire universe have this disturbing tendency to being authoritarian, with gravity, stable orbits, laws of physics etc.
Fallen London / Sunless universe is leaking?
More like Stellaris Become the Crisis perk when you destroy entire galaxy.
I thought the point being made was that “restaurants are bourgeois decadence”
Its just the anarchist tendency to cancel everything because they only see the negative aspects of it in capitalism. Of course AES countries have restaurants, and probably more communal eating and food prep than happens in capitalist countries. We’d have to stop producing everything and return to monke if we could only see the negative capitalist versions of everything.
The point I saw being made was that under capitalism, restaurant employees are exploited. Which, you know, is just capitalism in general.
But apparently, it’s reason enough to abolish restaurants, because of the authoritarian attitude of restaurant owners
We will abolish restaurants and create comunal spaces for people to be served food horizontally which is totally something different.
Serving food is an unnecessary service. I think it should be like dorm systems where you go get your own food and serve it yourself
If you mean having servers, even most popular newer restaraunt chains in the US don’t have them. Chipotle, noodles & co, etc.
That’s pretty cool. Meaningless and empty job serving people food. You don’t produce any value you are just selling an unnecessary service.
I don’t think it’s because of the same reasons, though.
