Biden administration moves to ban medical debt from credit reports
  • Ah, that makes a lot of sense. Thanks for explaining. I've been fortunate enough to avoid major medical expenses or debt, so I hadn't thought of the situation you've described.

  • Biden administration moves to ban medical debt from credit reports
  • Could you expand on why this makes such a big difference? I'm not very knowledgeable in this area. Is medical debt treated differently than other debts by lenders?

    My first thought was that medical debt, like any other debt, has financial obligations that lenders would have to know about to determine the amount of credit a person is eligible for. Wouldn't medical debt payments impact the amount of additional debt you can afford?

  • Hunter Biden convicted of three felony counts in federal gun trial
  • I get that the law is the law, and the jury has to rule as such (barring nullification), but this is such a stupid law.

    None of our other constitutional rights are contingent on not using controlled substances.

  • [META] Political News
  • I think your last paragraph is pretty much the goal. It makes sense to me. Just don't post partisan articles from partisan sources.

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • My comment and this thread has nothing to do with rightly or wrongly voting for anyone. Nor does it have anything to do with how anyone should justify their vote.

    I only reinforced the claim that anyone with a "D" next to their name is "fine enough" for progressives to vote for. A claim that you initially disagreed with, but are now proving to be true.

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • Actions speak louder than words. Who do these progressives keep voting for?

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • Time will tell if those people will still vote for Biden or if their hatred will be reflected in how they vote.

    A cool guide The Decline of the Simpsons
  • If I remember correctly the IMDB average is closer to 7.

  • Linus Tech Tips (LTT) release investigation results on former accusations
  • That's pretty much my thinking too. I mean, what's the less biased alternative to get to the truth here? The law firm has an incentive to satisfy the people paying them, but they also have their own reputation to maintain.

    So I guess I'd be inclined to skeptically believe their findings. Although, it would be better if the firm released their own summary (or endorsed this one).

  • Average U.S. vehicle age hits record 12.6 years as high prices force people to keep them longer
  • That's the case now, but not historically. The big 3 were making garbage cars until foreign companies expanded their US presence with domestic manufacturing. Widespread foreign makes built in the US is relatively recent.

  • Average U.S. vehicle age hits record 12.6 years as high prices force people to keep them longer
  • What are you talking about? American made cars (majority of historical volume) were notoriously bad until recently. Hondas and Toyotas were the exception. Now the expectation is that every make/model makes it to 200k miles.

    And rust was an issue because they used inferior paint on older vintages. I don't see how blaming it on material deficiencies supports your point.

  • Average U.S. vehicle age hits record 12.6 years as high prices force people to keep them longer
  • Due to cost or reliability improvements? Or both? Because cars are definitely operational a lot longer than they were 25-50 years ago.

  • A cool guide to Amazon's guide to conquer the world
  • I strongly disagree. If we don't nationalize IMDB then how can we possibly have any trust in the integrity and honesty of movie reviews?

    Everyone should be entitled to have access to accurate movie ratings.

  • Chris Harris: F1 has outgrown Imola
  • I think if they introduce a rotating calendar Imola would be an ideal track to have in the rotation. The racing usually isn't great, but it's not the worst, and it would still keep an iconic circuit in F1. Seems like a good compromise.

  • Putin starts tactical nuke drills near Ukraine

  • McLaren's Senna livery for Monaco

  • This is not a record to be proud of.
  • I like to picture Jesus in a Tuxedo T-shirt, 'cause it says, 'I wanna be formal, but I'm here to party, too.'

  • F1 technical chief Symonds set to leave role

    > As well as contributing to the roles for the new 2022 ground-effect era, he was also involved in the creation of the all-new cars that are coming for 2026.

    > But with the chassis part of those future rules now all but signed off, and due to be published at the start of next month, it is understood that Symonds decided a while ago to call time at the F1 organisation.

    > Although there has been no official announcement, it is understood that F1 staff were informed of the development on Monday. Symonds has gone on gardening leave with immediate effect.

  • FIA planning harsher F1 penalties to clamp down on Magnussen Miami tactics

    > The FIA is planning to impose harsher penalties for Formula 1 drivers deliberately cutting the track to keep a position in the wake of Kevin Magnussen's antics in Miami.

    > Motorsport.com understands the FIA is keen to start handing out drive-throughs in such scenarios, which solves the issue immediately because it forces the offending drivers to pit and cede track position within two laps.

    > The escalating punishment would be handed out in case of repeat offences during the same race, when the stewards suspect drivers are intentionally going off track to maintain their position.

    I've messed around with Udio and Suno quite a bit and I think Udio is a bit better. Especially with generating vocals without an auto-tune sound. Although I don't think it responds to prompts quite as well.

    Milk and the Destruction of Western Masculinity

    In the last 30 years, you can see a fixation in the West on diluting milk. Low-fat, ultra-pasturized, all that BS. Back in the 80snwe had none if this. It was just good, pure, American, 100% Whole Milk. But now, that's gone. Everywhere you just keep seeing this BS, and now we have fake milk. And ever since this shit got popular, you can see men getting weaker and weaker. Milk is an essential part of the diet, and Men need it for good Testosterone and muscle growth, its basic biology, not to mention the unpasteurized milk gave you immunity. But now, theyre taking allBack in the 90s, you could go outside and see good stuff outta the milk, its basically just white water now. And you can see the effects, back in the 90s, we had good, strong, masculine American Men. Nowadays, it's almost impossible to tell the average American man apart from the average woman (who also hasn't fared well from this globohomo milk BS).

    Don't even get me started on the whole baby formula thing. Let's just say MY kids will be tits-only, and we'll see if they fall to the Woke Globohomo agenda.

    Newey says ‘more subtle bits’ rather than Mercedes-like design elements key to RB20’s strengths

    Adrian Newey believes that more “subtle” elements of the Red Bull RB20 are actually the key to its gains in performance, rather than the particularly noticeable visual changes that have drawn attention given the change in concept from its predecessor.
