What scientific discovery, which could actually happen in the next 5 years, would have the most impact in our lives in you opinion?
  • Yes, it's brand new, but the mass manufacturing difficulties have been resolved. We might not have whatever future iteration of the technology you're looking for, but it is unquestionably here and future developments are likely to be incremental rather than revolutionary.

  • Disneyland workers say they live in cars and motels due to low pay
  • One she clearly cannot afford now, but that doesn't mean she couldn't afford them when she got them.

    I'm not speculating any more than that

    It is this exact speculation I'm telling you is the problem. You don't know so you default to saying she's irresponsible, despite having no evidence other than she fell on hard times while dogs were under her care. You don't even know what you're blaming her for, just the result, which is fucked up yo.

  • Disneyland workers say they live in cars and motels due to low pay
  • she probably never had the means to support those animals

    Speculation, and baseless at that.

    she never should have had them in the first place

    Things change, bud. I have a stable job now, have had it for over five years, but I might not in a month or a year. Dogs live for longer than that.

    I think a pretty good rule of thumb is that if you find yourself speculating about someone else's life or the future, there's probably a lot you don't know, so dial down the judgement.

  • Sovcit talked to the IRS.
  • I prefer to believe the IRS has a physical memes folder for this kind of shit which is now several storage rooms-worth of filing cabinets large. I hope one day they'll start releasing a decade of insanity at a time, and that Netflix will pick it up to make a Tim Robinson sketch show out of.

  • My friend is acting really weird with my girlfriend
  • If he's making the both of you uneasy and you don't feel alright pushing him to own up and talk about it, then absolutely remove him from your life. I'm sorry for you guys to lose a friend like that, I wish he were more receptive to changing, but you've got to protect you and her first. Jack can take care of himself (or, maybe not, but it's not your problem if you don't want it to be. And maybe losing a friend will be a wakeup call).

  • My friend is acting really weird with my girlfriend
  • It sounds like he has a lot of emotional issues that might be flying under the radar, and he might not be acting like this if everything was okay for him. Maybe neurodivergence? There's might be malice, but it's important not to assume that because there might not be (as hard as that might be to believe, seeing this behaviour firsthand like you are). Extreme isolation tactics like disabling all messaging for long periods are worrying as well; when I used to do that it was to see how people got used to me not being around in case I decided to not be around anymore.

    There are reasons you're friends with him, right? If you can still list those off maybe it's worth trying to talk to him about it and work through it together. What was the response like when your girlfriend confronted him about it?

  • 2-year-old Arizona girl dies after dad leaves her in car during triple-digit heat: Police
  • But the computer in the car might not be okay in that kind of heat, or even the battery depending on the type. I'll be honest, didn't read the article so I don't know what kind of car or even if the article says why it turned off.

    Either way it's rough. These kinds of stories always make me think just how easily something like this can happen. Again, didn't read the article, and I don't have kids so no firsthand experience, but I hear how tired you are all the time for the first few years as a parent. Imagine running errands, you pop inside to grab something and sit for just a second to catch your breath. Next thing you know you snap awake and it's half an hour later, you run out to the car to grab the kid and... 😞

  • How Much Is Your Time Worth?
  • Is it laziness, or burnout? I have spent most of the last three hours after work zonked out on my bed alternating between staring at the ceiling and dozing. Work just takes a lot out of me, but I don't think it's fair to call it laziness. When I don't work for a few days I start doing stuff again.

  • Finnish Witch (high effort version)

    Thanks for checking out the second version of my Noita fan track! This one sounds kinda like Scandroid. I did and do love the first version which was much closer to power metal, but I wasn't happy with a lot of aspects of it. I re-wrote the lyrics, re-generated the whole thing from scratch using Suno, and then spent ten hours figuring out the basics of DaVinci Resolve to add all the different animations and transitions. It's still not perfect but I'm happy with it... for now.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    I hope it's okay to cross-post this here! I'm not trying to spam, I didn't realise there was a difference between the different instances and thought my posts to one would be visible across all. I'm still getting the hang of this Fediverse thing 😄

    Touch of Water

    I had my best run going in over 280 hours. I had a homing rock wand, infinite spells and vampirism (infinite healing with the oceans of blood from corpses, not to mention grinding up the meat realm), an unmolested potion shop in the mines, and so many hearts I had 451 health with Vampirism. A fast teleport wand, a black hole wand I could have used to dig to parallel worlds eventually. I had killed The Alchemist and the Meat Realm boss with my sick homing quantum-split plasma beams on a Sparkbolt + Trigger.

    Then I found Touch of Water.

    !

    No room in my inventory, onto my chainsaw wand just 'til I could get back to a Holy Mountain to save it for later. Saw a corpse, thought I'd top off my health and fired my chainsaw wand.

    Actual footage of the event: !

    I finally feel like a real Noita!

    Why Starbound Failed

    This hits hard 'cause I was one of the fans so hopeful that Starbound would be Terraria 2 (In Space), and backed it on Kickstarter.

    The presentation is a bit editorial at times, but I feel it's a pretty good overview of the game and the context surrounding its development, hype, and downfall.

    I didn't want this to go to "waste" 🥁

    A GIF of the human "success" animation for researching Core Waste Dumps, from the game "Master of Orion 2: Battle At Antares". I actually played a game all the way through to this point to get the footage, as I didn't have it on any of my games in progress at the moment.

    Not only that, but the post I made it for got buried under downvotes, so nobody'd ever see it if I only posted it there. I hope other enjoyers of this sci-fi 4X classic find a pleasant dose of nostaligia in it 🖖
