It's a mystery
  • Police unsettled when homicide victim speaks up. Shot on sight.

  • Abortion Groups Say Tech Companies Suppress Posts and Accounts
  • Ah thank you. It paywalled me so there was no context.

  • Abortion Groups Say Tech Companies Suppress Posts and Accounts
  • Right? Do they mean anti-abortion groups, anti-natalists, or pro-choice people? What is an abortion group?

  • ‘Once-in-a-lifetime’ explosion will bring a new star to the night sky
  • Astronomers are expecting a “new star” to appear in the night sky anytime between now and September in a celestial event that has been years in the making, according to NASA.

    I mean, no. It hasn’t been years in the making, it happened a very, very long time ago. We just don’t get to see it until now.

    It’s more that we’ve been anticipating the event for years.

  • Apple AI vs. Microsoft AI
  • Apple talks big about privacy but we only have their word for it, and they’re a corporation just as likely to lie and muddle things to fool their customers. That’s my main problem concerning Apple and privacy.

    On paper their approach to ML is probably the best I’ve seen from any corp, and it’s probably the best I could’ve hoped to see since there’s no way they’d outright not go down that route.

  • Ikea’s CEO has solved the Swedish retailer’s global ‘unhappy worker’ crisis by raising salaries, introducing flexible working and subsidizing childcare
  • I dunno. Kids making mods is one thing, a corporation exploiting that for profit is something different.

    Sure, Gmod and what have you definitely had sales because of mods, meaning an indirect profit, so one could question that too. When it comes to Roblox they’re directly profiting off of the labour of children in a very predatory manner.

    Neither scenario is fantastic I suppose, but only the latter is actively encouraging and building systems to exploit people.

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • It’s silly to downvote you for wanting the leaders and representatives of a country and its people to be held to a certain standard.

  • Biden supporters mostly back him in 2024 election because they oppose Trump, poll finds
  • Roe v. Wade was overturned under his mandate period as well. Sure it’s a Supreme Court decision, and the SC is mostly republican but it’s not like Biden couldn’t have pushed harder. He could, but then he wouldn’t be able to campaign on it.

    “Vote for me and I’ll return some rights to people, maybe.”

  • Malaysian Firefly Researcher Speaks About Her Life's Work At US TED Talk
  • I read researcher as rescuer and found the notion incredibly cute.

  • Microsoft has blocked the bypass that allowed you to create a local account during Windows 11 setup by typing in a blocked email address
  • Really? I seem to recall being shit out of luck when it couldn’t figure out my WiFi drivers and wanted me to connect via Ethernet instead.

  • Fraud trial juror reports getting bag of $120,000 and promise of more if she'll acquit
  • I don’t see why she couldn’t take the money and get off the jury. It’s not like the briber is entitled to illegal money. At that point she could just make sure the money ends up where it needs to go.

  • Gender rule
  • In non-Japanese cartoons as well. Jimmy Neutron is voiced by Debi Derryberry.

  • Felonies, gotta catch 'em all
  • This whole thing says more about the quality of candidates than the system, though. The fact that I can say “he’s demented” and you don’t know who I’m referring to shows that the political establishment has its collective head up its ass.

    Yeah. Like they should be enjoying retirement at this age, not running a bloody country.

  • Felonies, gotta catch 'em all
  • Convicted felons can't vote, but they can run for office.

  • The ugly truth behind ChatGPT: AI is guzzling resources at planet-eating rates
  • The golden gate bridge is so far away from me. I don't know what to do to cure depression. :(

  • Soap operas are able to keep a coherent storyline though
  • Fairy vagina??

    I overall liked the first two seasons of Discovery but Michael and Klingonman’s relationship took too much space. It was too much melodrama and I felt like they could’ve done something more productive.

    Tilly was probably my favourite character, but there’s a bunch of interesting ones they could’ve developed further. Did Tilly’s mushroom friend ever return?

    I’m also hella disappointed they killed Hugh only to bring him back, like that plot line wasn’t interesting at all. I’m dead tired of burying the gays.

  • Miracle cures
  • Does turmeric need to be a miraculous panacea? Isn’t it enough that it’s delicious?

  • OpenAI Disrupts Disinformation Campaigns From Russia, China Using Its Systems To Influence Public Opinion
  • It's funny to me how they are announcing this like it's supposed to make us thankful that they've vaguely sort of almost addressed an issue they're single-handedly repsonsible for. So much for a "responsible rollout." Joke of a company.

  • Any thoughts on the new mount? Personally I love it! It reminds me so much of the Sulyvahn's Beast enemies in Dark Souls 3.

    Who's a good boy?
