I love this (screenshot from birdsite about silly funny NFT stuff)

If anyone well-actuallies me about this nonsense silly throw away joke image I will yeet you into the fucking sun

@welshpixie this is definitely goofy stuff & indeed I've seen more than a few similar interactions there. I love gardening & plants, overall I think of NFTs as being very similar to plant seeds, anyone & basically everyone that gets near can grab it & sharing it doesn't really diminish it's true value either.

@MalkaBeth I think NFTs have a true value of zero and it's pretty hard to diminish that so yeah XD

@welshpixie lol so do many seeds, as some have a super low germination rate & are very hard plants to grow - so indeed the analogy holds. I know that many will pay for them, myself included but many of us are also quite willing to give them away to others for free.

@welshpixie tell me this person is trolling.
And then people ask me why everyone should learn at least the basics of how the internet works.

@jae It would not surprise me in the slightest if they were absolutely genuine and not trolling. XD

@welshpixie I love this, if it's a troll it's brilliant and if it's not it's hilarious

@welshpixie

There's a mistake : the NFT is a pointer to a file, not the file itself nor even metadata attached to the file.

@welshpixie

Yes and no.
The first message says "your NFT" while it's "the file to which your NFT points".
The other intervenants laugh at the misunderstanding of how http works, but it's based on a (shared) misunderstanding of what is a NFT.

So basically, while it's funny it propagates a fundamental misunderstanding.

@lienrag The whole thing is about a misunderstanding and illustrating how gullible NFT bros are.

@lienrag @welshpixie "the file for your NFT", which admittedly isn't entirely without ambiguity

@lienrag
How pedantic do you have to be, to correct someone on a joke someone else has made?
Also how pedantic do you have to be, to correct someone on a joke? It's not a scientific paper...

@welshpixie this is getting out of hand. I didn't know it was this bad. 😆

@welshpixie
I mean, inline images weren't in the 1989 spec, or even the 1991 release, so it's more like since 1992, but still...

@welshpixie I knew it, you really can throw things into the sun!

@efi no I mean it's real but it's dumb and doesn't need people factually nitpicking over it
