Was always right and the author was wrong vs just being hot
  • I don't know about the comics, but there is real life result from having better education curtailing overpopulation. The Earth's population as we speak is expected to plateau, as the rest of the developing countries are catching up economically and becoming better educated. I don't see why the galactic population can't be the same.

  • Deportation flights to Rwanda will take off in 10 to 12 weeks, Rishi Sunak says
  • Australia placed asylum seekers in an island detention centres with inhumane conditions. Is that what you want to hear? To validate your opinion and agreement to the Rwanda bill? The UK Supreme Court ruled that Rwanda is not even a safe place. Do you see Rwanda like the Australian detention centre because you are a piece of shit? Do you have any more sealioning questions to validate how much of a piece of shit you are who is no worse than smugglers abusing asylum seekers? The Rwanda bill is not even popular among the British when polled except for pieces of shit. Is that the answer you want to hear?

  • geoengineering
  • People are thinking about planets but there are potential habitable satellites or moons in the solar system. One of Jupiter's moon, Callisto, has surface water and potentially habitable by terraforming.

  • House passes critical aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan along with a TikTok ban
  • Of course you'd deny.

    In the last several years, particularly under Xi Jinping’s rule, there has been an even greater attempt by the political leadership to increase their control over the private sector, reduce its political influence, and ensure its loyalty to the system. This has included expanding the reach of national security policies and regulations. For example, the adoption of the National Intelligence Law in 2017 requires all firms in China to accede to government demands to provide information and data as authorities deem necessary to protect China’s national security. It has also meant using carrots, such as providing industrial policy opportunities to private firms, and sticks, such as the regulatory crackdown on private Internet firms that started in late 2018 and recently concluded. Finally, the CCP has also stepped up efforts to directly influence the corporate governance of private firms, in some cases taking “golden shares” in companies, pushing private firms to form CCP branches (see Figure 3), and integrating firms into the burgeoning “corporate social credit system” (CSCS).

  • Is there something wrong with GOG version of Fallout 4?
  • I've heard of criticisms about FO4 which is why I'm not enthused to buy the game when it first came out. I'm thinking of just finishing the game as quickly as possible for the lore. I have not even finished FO2.

  • Is there something wrong with GOG version of Fallout 4?

    I got hyped by the TV series so I will play the game for the first time (yes, I know, it took this long). I usually prefer to buy GOG version of a game but I saw the rating of FO4 GOG at 3.9/5. Why is that? I have read somewhere that there is technical issue of some sort which includes modding for GOG version? I expected higher gamer rating for FO4 in GOG but a lower rating typically indicates for me some genuine issues.

    Edit: also the GOG Version says it does not include the Creation Club. What is it and is it in some way better than using Nexus mods?

    Russia says US support for Ukraine will end as ‘humiliating fiasco’ like ‘Vietnam and Afghanistan’
  • I was watching an analysis on the 2023 progress of the war. The author said that while he acknowledges that Russia seems to have the favour making the war a stalemate and took more strategic, albeit small, locations than Ukraine did; this leads to Catch-22 for Kremlin that the more Ukraine struggles, the more money Ukraine will receive which is not on Russia's favour.

  • Gameplay mechanics were also a lot better with more replayability.

    Ignoring the lack of updates if the game is buggy, games back then were also more focused on quality and make gamers replay the game with unlockable features based on skills, not money. I can't count the number of times I played Metal Gear Solid games over and over to unlock new features playing the hardest difficulty and with handicap features, and also to find Easter eggs. Speaking of Easter eggs, you'd lose a number of hours exploring every nook and cranny finding them!

    Which actors you admire that you really wish not to have any scandals?

    I was watching a video on Willem Dafoe on his iconic roles, and his passion to craft and life, and positivity, exudes from him immensely. In that video, I am surprised he remembers from which of his movies the lines came from. It made me love him more as an actor because he loves life and his job.

    But then during the interview, I remembered too when I watched Kevin Spacey's interview before, admiring him and it turned out he is a creep. I was telling to myself about Willem Dafoe "please don't be a creep, please don't be a creep."

    Willem seems like a genuinely nice guy though but I hope I don't get proven wrong!

    Edit: clarified the title
