Boeing faces fresh safety questions after engine fire on flight from Scotland
  • They technical don't make airframes or doors either (and still don't until their buyout of their supplier goes through).

  • A NYTimes photographer took a picture of Trump a moment before he was struck by a bullet
  • If that's real, that would be after he was struck, right? The bullet is to his left, and he was shot from his right

  • Straw Hat Riot
  • Crazy. This is a good article to point to when people say everyone used to be better. Aside from all the, you know, racism, sexism, etc.

  • Boeing accepts a plea deal to avoid a criminal trial over 737 Max crashes, Justice Department says
  • They did it once, then did it again and not only is it still just a fine, the fine didn't even go up. Given inflation since then, the fine actually went down in real terms.

    That'll teach them for sure! /s

  • If I got big enough that Earth could fit in the palm on my hand, could I destroy it by squeezing it very hard?
  • No, I don't think so.

    The Earth's density is 5.51 g/cm³.

    For comparison, a baseball has a density of 1.3 g/cm³.

    Even just the Earth's surface crust has an average density of 2.7 g/cm³ (it's more dense under the ocean)

    Unless you can compress a baseball with your hands, you're not making a dent in the Earth.

    The only way it would work would be if your strength increased proportionally with your size, which isn't the case normally for humans (someone 20% taller than another person isn't necessarily 20% stronger than them).

  • Minecraft is down
  • Yeah, saw something after I left the comment. It was Minecraft per se that was down. It was the x box authorization/login system. Even bigger!

  • Minecraft is down
  • How does Minecraft even go down? Was it the MS-run Realms that were down? The entire x-box account authorization system?

  • Universal basic income is 'straight out of the Karl Marx playbook,' financial guru Dave Ramsey says
  • He was always a grifter. When I was in college in the late 90s he had a financial responsibility program for college students to help them learn how to get out from college debt they were in the process of racking up. It was something like $40-50 a session for a 6-8 week course. That would be roughly $75-90 today.

    I watched way too many of my friends give away money to that guy.

  • TIL the first Star Wars movie (A New Hope) was actually made after a book adaptation, which means Star Wars hype is technically literary-based in nature
  • That used to be really common. Movie novelizations would come out before the movie, along with soundtracks, etc. It was part of the promotional campaign.

  • Mike Flanagan Says Netflix Was "Actively Hostile" Towards the Idea of Releasing Physical Media: "It Became Clear Very Fast That Their Only Priority Was Subs"
  • Interesting because they've published things on home media in Europe fairly quickly and consistently. You just have to import them. At least most of the shows I've been interested in (Marvel Defenders, etc)

  • Blog Post on Biological and Behavioural Changes Caused by Hormonal Contraception
  • Why on earth is there a picture from "Scott Pilgrim vs the World" in this article? And with no attribution or caption.

  • Josh Gibson becomes MLB career and season batting leader as Negro Leagues statistics incorporated
  • And Babe Ruth and Sammy Sosa weren't hitting against the same kind of pitchers. I'd say Ruth and Gibson were probably facing pitchers and fielders with more in common than those of different eras. Stats always come with context. Doesn't mean they don't belong together in the same list.

  • Home insurance was once a ‘must.’ Now more homeowners are going without | Slammed by pricier policies and climate-driven natural disasters, more and more Americans are exposing themselves to risk
  • The only people doing this are loaded with enough cash or assets to not have to take out a mortgage. They'll be fine.

    You can't get a new mortgage without insurance

  • Home insurance was once a ‘must.’ Now more homeowners are going without | Slammed by pricier policies and climate-driven natural disasters, more and more Americans are exposing themselves to risk
  • Anyone going without home insurance is paying cash for their house. No bank would give someone a mortgage on a property that could turn to ashes with no insurance.

  • This Christian movie was made near me and comes out soon. I almost want to see it because it sounds so funny.
  • Exactly my thought re: King James. Hilarious.

    But what do you mean by the "original text" which is challenging to even determine given the relatively recent age and conditions of most manuscripts of both new and old testaments.

  • What is your favorite PG rated horror movie?
  • The MPAA rating system didn't start widespread use until the early 1970s, and even then (as you'd expect since since it is the MPA"A") only in the USA. Other rating systems in other countries followed later (for the most part).

    So any movie prior to that would have been unrated when it came out. Especially if it was a non-USA production.

    Any rating you see on a movie older than that has been applied after the fact.

  • What is your favorite PG rated horror movie?
  • Does "Jaws" count? It wouldn't be PG these days but I'd say it counts as horror.

    "The Birds" was technically unrated when it came out. I've seen it rated as PG-13 now, but not sure what that's based on since it is from way before PG-13.

  • www.earth.com The U.S. just expanded its territory by one million square kilometers

    The U.S. has officially expanded its geographical territory by one million square kilometers -- an area nearly 60 percent the size of Alaska.

    The U.S. just expanded its territory by one million square kilometers

    The expansion is based on internationally established definitions of the continental shelf, and comes from research and surveys conducted by various groups going back to 2003, confirming where the continental shelf actually is.

    Interestingly, this doesn't include the water column above this territory, so it doesn't mean control of fishing or shipping lanes. Only seabed/underground mineral/drilling/pipelines control. Depending on policy and which political party is in control at the time, this could mean preventing others from drilling these areas, or (more likely?) making a profit off allowing drilling here.

    Most of the addition is in the Arctic, but includes territory around the whole country.

    View from my seats for tonight. Glad hockey is back!

    Scored some free tickets from a friend. First time back in the building in more than a year. Even if it is 'just' preseason. Good to be back.

    Ginóbili deserved to get Finals MVP in 2005. I lost a lot of sleep because of him. He was just dominant.

    What's the word on Preds TV packages? did Bally die yet? can't find any updates since the bankruptcy filing in the spring

    What's the word on Preds TV packages? did Bally die yet? can't find any updates since the bankruptcy filing in the spring

    I'd love a better option than the $20+ /mo direct subscription, and I don't want to sail the seven seas.

    Is there a way to filter specific keywords for Lemmy?

    Either in a client (I've been using Jeroba) or in my Lemmy profile. I'd love to be able to block words I don't want to see stuff about... Like trying to avoid spoilers for movies, or just wanting to avoid mentions of certain people, but without blocking entire communities.
