Neuralink to implant 2nd human with brain chip as 75% of threads retract in 1st
  • And nothing about what you quoted indicates what he was or was not told about the potential outcomes of the procedure, or how he was treated. Only that he was disappointed with the outcome. Of course he was, of course he wanted it to work out, so of course he was disappointed.

    I stand by my point that only the negative part of his statement was cherry-picked out in order to justify shitting on Musk, rather than honestly assessing what happened.

  • You cherry-picked the first part of that paragraph. The end goes like this:

    Arbaugh went on to say that he has since recovered from the initial disappointment and continues to have hope for the technology.

    And then the next part of his statement is found in the following paragraph:

    "I thought that I had just gotten to, you know, scratch the surface of this amazing technology, and then it was all going to be taken away," he added. "But it only took me a few days to really recover from that and realize that everything I’ve done up to that point was going to benefit everyone who came after me.” He also said that "it seems like we’ve learned a lot and it seems like things are going in the right direction."

    Of course, the goal here is not to have an honest assessment of what happened. . .but to simply choose what we want to further our hatred (justified, IMO) of Musk.

  • U.S. governors urge Turks and Caicos to release Americans as Florida woman becomes 5th tourist arrested for ammo in luggage
  • Who says they’re not smuggling ammo into the country to use for criminal activity? You only need to fire a single bullet to kill someone.

    The woman in question was traveling with her daughter, and was caught with 2 rounds of ammo in her bag when leaving the country. If you are trying to smuggle it in, why are you bringing it back out?

    But if they can prove that she was trying to smuggle ammo into the country, what the law was meant for, then yes please let her burn. But "she might have been, so it's fine she is doing prison time despite it almost certainly just being a dumb mistake" doesn't sit well with me at all. I don't believe it It should sit well with anyone who claims to care about justice.

    I also assume 12 years is the upper limit for possession here.

    You really think someone should do prison time for making a mistake that didn't even hurt anyone?

  • Do you have anything that actually indicates any of these people who have been arrested there demanded that this exact thing happen to everyone else globally? Outside of that, it just reeks of dealing with the cognitive dissonance of thinking you care about justice, but having a vengeful attitude towards Americans, probably because you have a low opinion of America's politics.

  • Justice Alito sold Bud Light stock amidst anti-trans boycott effort
  • Read the rest of this thread. Pretty much every other top comment is about whether they should be able to hold stocks at all. They didn't read the article, assumed it was something they could throw onto the pile of reasons they hate alito, so anything that calls that into question must be democratically banned.

  • Justice Alito sold Bud Light stock amidst anti-trans boycott effort
  • The question is whether this indicates he was taking part in the boycott, not whether he was insider trading.

    But ultimately I agree, the fact that there is a public boycott against them that looks like it has some legitimate legs is going to cause a lot of people to sell the stock, whether they agree with the boycott or not.

  • Trump demands drug test for Biden ahead of first debate
  • If it hasn't come at trump's request, I would agree with you. But allowing trump to get this win when it comes to changing the requirements for the debates would just open the door for more demands.

  • oh you were in the legislature when the laws were crafted?

    Lol were you in the legislature when they passed this law? You seemed to have no issue declaring the reason for it when it confirmed what you wanted to be true, and now hypocritically are attacking me for for actually knowing why the law exists.

    And no one is saying that they can't make their laws as they like. You've so badly lost this argument, and you know it, that you've turned to blatant hypocrisy and to attacking strawmen. Again, to be clear, I'm arguing the law is clearly unjust and it would a travesty of justice that these people lose 10 years of their lives, and their children lose 10 years of their parents, because they made a mistake.

  • Can I ask that you first explain to me why you think this mother, while travelling with her daughter, was intentionally trying to smuggle 2 rounds of ammo out of Turks and Caicos? If you can come up with a reasonable explanation for this, I'd be happy to answer your question.
