Narrative of Trump snoozing in court takes hold — much to his annoyance
  • You'd need an afternoon nap too if you ate two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate shake for lunch every day.

    And just in case anyone thinks that may have changed since that news originally came out in 2017.... It hasn't. He was still getting McDonald's delivered to court every day as recently as last October.

  • Kristi Noem’s Team Told Her to Nix the Dog Story Two Years Ago
  • In other words, they produced a typical pre-campaign book, where the first rule is to do no harm. Somewhat unusually for the genre, that book, 2022’s Not My First Rodeo: Lessons from the Heartland, landed the South Dakota governor on the New York Times’ bestseller list, adding to the consensus that the Donald Trump devotee had a big future in GOP politics.

    What it didn’t do, of course, was spark a weeklong news cycle — and a round of obituaries for that same political future — by including a tale about Noem leading a 14-month-old wirehaired pointer named Cricket to a gravel pit and shooting him to death after he ruined a pheasant hunt and killed a neighbor’s chickens.

    This time around, Noem has a different team in place, as well as a different imprint, Hachette’s conservative-leaning Center Street. And the folks behind her new book, No Going Back, didn’t get in the way of sharing memories about gunning down an ill-trained puppy.

    Kirsti Noem's publisher in 2022: "This is a horrible story. We can't include this, Dick Cheney only got away with his hunting trip scandal because he shot a lawyer and not a puppy."

    Kristi Noem's new Conservative publisher in 2024: "People will be impressed with how tough you are on puppy crime."

  • Logitech Launches An “AI” Mouse That’s Just A 2022 Mouse With A Mappable Button
  • This button is preprogrammed to launch the ChatGPT prompt builder, which Logitech recently added to its peripherals configuration app Options+

    Speaking of which, I'd like to take a moment to tell Logitech to go F themselves for bringing this stupid AI prompt builder to Options+. It's unnecessary bloat and nobody wants it.

  • Will Nikki Haley do the right thing and endorse Joe Biden?
  • Lol of course she won't. That would require far more integrity and courage than anyone left in the GOP possesses.

  • In a high-stakes test, Boeing will launch NASA astronauts to space for the first time
  • No but they did sort out the whistleblower problem - twice!

  • Sen. Tim Scott, a rumored VP pick, backs Trump's election denial
  • Tim Scott is a gutless hack who apparently hasn't had enough of being embarrassed on the national stage yet. It doesn't matter what you do or say Sen. Scott, Trump's not going to pick you because it would upset his base. And we all know why.

  • Dog Bites American Airlines Staffer & Passenger At Denver International Airport
  • The dog is currently in quarantine but is expected to be released on Monday.

    [Kristi Noem puts on camouflage facepaint and walks toward her gun rack]: "Not if I have anything to say about it."

  • Firefox user loses 7,470 opened tabs saved over two years after they can’t restore browsing session
  • Yeah there's no practical way to manage thousands of browser tabs in your workflow, that's just digital hoarding.

  • A driver dies after crashing into a security barrier around the White House complex, authorities say
  • Okay so you clearly do not know what the words specific and literal mean. Got it.

  • A driver dies after crashing into a security barrier around the White House complex, authorities say
  • They actually didn't "specifically" say that. At all. Until editing their comment an hour after being called out.

  • A driver dies after crashing into a security barrier around the White House complex, authorities say
  • Lol yep. It cracks me up when people think just because they aren't going to one extreme or the other with their speculation that they aren't still engaging in wild speculation. That's not how it works.

  • A driver dies after crashing into a security barrier around the White House complex, authorities say
  • "There's no information yet so I'm going to make up an explanation which is the most likely scenario given that there's no information yet."

    Brilliant.

    Reddit Reports Surge in Copyright-Related User Bans * TorrentFreak
  • It’s who left that matters. We lost a TON of tech people. People with experience and knowledge in the field.

    You aren't kidding. The tech knowledge of the average redditor has been dropping for years as the site became increasingly mainstream but it cratered after the API change. It's very amusing to read through a thread about lemmy in r/technology though. According to the average redditor picking an instance and then clicking the "communities" section to subscribe to comms you're interested in is the most complicated thing they've ever encountered in their lives. It's silly. Lemmy took about as much time for me to get the hang of as reddit did when I first joined in 2011. A few days, maybe a week tops... And that includes the time I spent test-driving different front ends and apps before settling on a desktop/mobile combo of Alexandrite and Voyager.

    Sure understanding how federation works may take awhile but you really don't need to know much about any of that to get setup and start participating as a user.
