US banana giant ordered to pay $38m to families of Colombian men killed by death squads
  • If corporations are people (Citizens United) they should be able to be tried and get the death penalty.

  • Can I still use this salt?
  • It's likely fine to use for thousands of years. Expiration dates are stupid.

  • Fallout TV Show Could Now Last Five Seasons After ‘Immensely Surprising’ Popularity, Say Creators
  • Creators, "Now let's ruin it by going to the most fan-sacred places in the Fallout universe."

  • Israel committing genocide in Gaza, new study concludes – Middle East Monitor
  • Hasn't changed US foreign policy for decades, so yeah probably not. From arming to giving Israel protection in the UN, the US is all in on Palestinian genocide. The US does not recognize the jurisdiction of the ICC because the court could be used for "political reasons". This goes back to the creation of the ICC, which the Clinton admin helped to form but then vote against. Israel, Russia, Israel, China, Libya, and Qatar are the only countries who do not recognize the jurisdiction of the court. There is a through line on why they don't: it is because of what they have already done and continue to do that would levy charges at the court. In fact the US has the American Service Members Protection Act to make cooperation with the court next to impossible.

    TL:DR; the US has been complicit in Palestinian genocide since Eisenhower.

  • The police need this for...?
  • Protect and serve corporate and billionaire interests.

  • A PR disaster: Microsoft has lost trust with its users, and Windows Recall is the straw that broke the camel's back
  • I haven't found a suitable replacement yet. I know this is somewhat niche but nothing on Linux can do batch management of Keywords as well as Bridge or Lightroom. I wish I knew anything about C to contribute.

  • Gravity Kills - Down
  • Such a great band.

  • Made breakfast for dinner with my family
  • To quote Scrubs, "You got brinner!? Daaamn Turkeldog!"

  • Can a Governor or the US President pardon an Assassin he hired?
  • Easy to abuse for sure. It does happen frequently. Perhaps none more damning to the project of accountability than the parden of Richard Nixon. Presidents are seen as above the law. A conviction is viewed as "dividing the nation" to hold them to their actions.

    Hopefully Biden doesn't do this for Trump. Fuck that shit stain.

  • Solar project to destroy thousands of Joshua trees in the Mojave Desert
  • And even in places where it is happening, it is still extremely rare for a parking lot to have solar panels. Legislation is needed.

  • Solar project to destroy thousands of Joshua trees in the Mojave Desert
  • Put solar panels in parking lots and on buildings, where the humans live, not in fragile ecosystems. Deserts aren't bereft of life, they are filled with some of the most resilient and charismatic flora and fauna known. Joshua trees and the Mojave have it bad enough already.

  • the struggle is real
  • Most city cores don't have HOAs as their housing stock predates the proliferation of HOAs. They also tend to be more progressive in comparison to suburban and exurban communities. Sorry for triggering something in you. HOAs are inherently political which the meme speaks to: the veneer of uniformity is more important than structural problems.

  • Tonkotsu Ramen

    I make tonkotsu broth and keep it around for when I need something warm and comforting. It has soft boiled soy sause infused ramen eggs, spring onion, and nori.

    I need to step up my game and keep some roasted and pureed garlic and toasted sesame around but this will do at my desk at work.
