  • I think they're speaking in the "all authority is violence" metaphor.

    What a title.

  • Can you read the ancient glyphs
  • “I am not a bot, and this action was performed manually”

    Why is that in quotes? Are you actually a bot?

  • Consumers say they're pulling back on tipping servers, drivers and hair stylists
  • I imagine it's just built in to the POS software they use, which is probably generic. Doesn't really make that better, but

  • Consumers say they're pulling back on tipping servers, drivers and hair stylists
  • In the US, it is quite illegal to not give any of the tip to the worker. Managers and apps can't keep any amount of the tip, and the only way it's legal for the worker to not get the whole thing is if the service uses a tip sharing setup where it goes into a pool that is distributed (in which case it is evenly distributed amongst the participating workers, management still can't legally take any).

    Illegal things happen, but almost certainly not as often on an app that helps records like that than you'd think

  • British TV presenter Mosley found dead on Greek island of Symi
  • I somehow missed the word "dead" in the headline and started to scrutinize why, exactly, it was newsworthy that some broadcaster was found on a Greek island.

  • This new dating app will use facial recognition technology to exclude trans women
  • I recognize the tool used and it genders me correctly all the time, so probably not what she's going for

  • This new dating app will use facial recognition technology to exclude trans women
  • What about the trans women who have "vagina, tits, and face"? Checkmate, atheists.

  • This new dating app will use facial recognition technology to exclude trans women
  • I mean, isn't that also just true of anyone you've interacted with? Their point was that they never "found out" someone they were dating on there was trans, and everyone that dated from those apps who oc every discovered were trans were straightforward about it.

    Why would you need or want to be that precise about your language?

  • This new dating app will use facial recognition technology to exclude trans women
  • It'll exclude plenty of people, it just won't do a good job of selectively excluding trans people.

  • Have you got any weird questions for the opposite gender?
  • Not without another reason to be talking to her. If she's charging with you on the bus for a minute, go for it. But if she's walking past you on the street, keep it to yourself

  • Bursting with happiness
  • "people who argue against copyright" tend to be pretty well informed on the history of it, and aware of the way it's used today. Generally, they argue that it is not performing that function, and may often work the other way around.

  • Can a Governor or the US President pardon an Assassin he hired?
  • you’ll have Democratic politicians and appointees falling out windows.

    I mean there's defense, and there's defenestration.

  • People still manage to get it backwards.
  • I doubt either Jadzia or Ezri would have thought of themselves as trans. At the very least not because Dax previously had a male host.

  • Yuntai: Hiker finds pipe feeding China's tallest waterfall
  • Not even that it took a lot of work to make diversion possible, but also that what you're seeing is, if anything, a slightly reduced version of the original, natural falls. The same river is going over the same spot it did originally, there is just infrastructure now that allows it to go elsewhere when the hydro dam that is also on the river needs maintenance.

  • Yuntai: Hiker finds pipe feeding China's tallest waterfall
  • Why you have to assume I'm from R'lyeh? There are other impossible cities, nestled in the bosom of roiling, black seas and characterized by writhing, non-euclidean angles and shapes that tessellate into the vast, unknowable distance

  • there is no rule
  • I mean... Yes? Yes. Yes, right?

  • That's the rules
