    This comic strip is part of a series that talks about taking care of the environment. In this specific comic, he’s showing that rooftop gardens are just the beginning, but it inspired aliens to integrate nature into their society. It’s kind of sad because these aliens only saw a tiny part of our planet and imagined that everywhere has plenty of nature and we take care of it, but we know it’s not like that since we’re experts at destroying nature.

  • The reasons are the worst:

    • Companies said they are posting fake jobs for a laundry list of reasons, including to deceive their own employees.

    • More than 60% of those surveyed said they posted fake jobs “to make employees believe their workload would be alleviated by new workers.”

    • Sixty-two percent of companies said another reason for the shady practice is to “have employees feel replaceable.”

    • Two-thirds of companies cited a desire to “appear the company is open to external talent” and 59% said it was an effort to “collect resumes and keep them on file for a later date.”

    • What’s even more concerning about the results: 85% of companies engaging in the practice said they interviewed candidates for the fake jobs."

  • I spent two full minutes trying to understand why people were interpreting this comic strip as something related to gender identity.

    It’s my fault. I slightly broke one of the community rules that stipulates stories must be complete. I thought this segment of the comic told a complete story on its own, but the lack of context led to this misunderstanding, and I apologize for that.

    Indeed, the story continues, and I was hoping that some people would visit the author’s website to read the entire arc of this story. To clarify once and for all, and already giving a spoiler, the blonde woman who appears in the story is the CEO of the company, and for that reason she did not appear in the listing of regular employees.

    Go with OpenSuSE Tumbleweed or Fedora, because software updates roll in at a good pace. Stable, easy to use and configure.

    Go with Arch or Manjaro only if you really want the bleeding-edge software versions. You can have some instability as a result, or not. Good luck.

    Don’t go with Debian, Ubuntu and likewise, only if you want to make some gymnastics to update your programs every major release. These are the most stable Linux distros.
