Joe Biden ends re-election campaign
  • The president of the United States affects the rest of the world but we don't have a say in who it is, so I don't know what you expect from us foreigners? Perhaps my country which is a staunch US ally and a fraction of the size should launch a coup?

    Sort your shit out, America, because nobody is in a position to do it for you. We're making jokes because it seems unreal that things have gotten this far and because there is no real way for us to influence US domestic politics.

  • Why in 2024 do people still believe in religion? (serious)
  • Please tell me, scientifically, why you are so sure that people of faith are wrong?

    Because they all offer competing and mutually exclusive hypotheses.

    Christianity tells us that the one true path to salvation is by accepting Jesus Christ as your lord and saviour.

    Hinduism tells us that our next life will take place in this world, based on our actions in this life.

    Islam tells us that Mohammed is the one true prophet.

    Buddhism says that there are no prophets, enlightenment only comes from within.

    They make contradictory claims, so by definition they can't all be right, and they typically claim that they are correct and the other explanations are false, so even if one religion is correct, the rest (comprising of the majority of the faithful) must be wrong.

  • Germany may introduce conscription for all 18-year-olds
  • It's not good at all for society. It's slavery with the addition of a heightened risk of death, all to serve the whims of guys in suits far from the battlefield.

    Previous commenter thinking it's a good thing because it will whip the rabble into shape is delirious. These are peoples sons and daughters that we would be sending off to die in the mud. Shameful.

  • ByteDance prefers TikTok shutdown in US if legal options fail, sources say
  • I don't recall the previous commenter mentioning anything about Facebook. Making a comment that is anti something doesn't automatically mean they're pro something else.

    Step 1: Feel like getting into a comment section argument

    Step 2: Put words in the other guy's mouth and argue against those

    Step 3: Make yourself look like a bit of a tool

    Is this the best use of your time?

  • Musk moves Tesla's goalposts, investors happily move shares higher
  • Musk said. "If you get to the 100 million vehicle level, which I think we will … you've got a kilowatt of useable compute," Musk said.

    A whole kilowatt? "I think you could have on the order of 100 gigawatts of useful compute." Ah.

    "And unlike laptops and our cell phones, it is totally under Tesla's control," Musk added.

    They clearly seem to think that they can do whatever they want with their customer's property

  • Festival crowd boos at video of conference speakers gushing about how great AI is
  • Models are getting more efficient and hardware is getting more powerful, it's completely feasible that open source, self hosted, GPT4 equivalent and better models will be completely viable to run as individuals for reasonable costs (hundreds, not thousands) in the not too distant future.

    As always, the will and knowledge to use the tools falls to the individual.
