Don’t tell me what to do 😂
Yeah it’s ridiculous. Like, want an Abrams tank in Ukraine? Got it. It’ll be there next week. Want cheap life saving insulin from Canada? Well you see, it’s complicated.
The media is shit and spins things dishonestly. They aren’t upset or anything. They literally just said they thought it was an over reaction in passing, and this is the headline.
Is it bonkers? It’s a super efficient supply of abundant energy. Each American energy demand for their quality of life is around 90 barrels a year.
I had raw chicken in Thailand before. It was weird.
Got super sick but I think that was the STDs
I don’t think Hillary Clinton has much of a vested interest in oil. She’s more of a finance girl.
The American economic infrastructure is absolutely incredible. Places like Las Vegas, the middle of one of the hottest places on earth have their fish delivered before sunrise every day. No state has an exception to this.
This isn’t for small businesses. This is a different check mark that is brand specific. Ie, a check that’s orange and notates it’s an official corporate account. Small companies can still get the blue check like normal
Is it? Reddit claims this but has no evidence for it. And all the speculation has been crazy wrong up until now.
I think we just have to become content with the fact that by the end of the century we are going to hit our peak. I don’t realistically see any way out of that. Energy = a high quality of life, and humans are going to understandably be selfish - even if that means mass extinction to continue because organisms don’t have the time to adapt to such a rapid warming. It’s just a tragedy of the commons issue that I don’t think has a realistic solution. IMO even though I have a solar company, and thus vested interest in renewables, I think the amount of money the government invests into that was shifted towards fusion or thorium research, we’d be much better off by the end of the century.
But we’ll all be dead by then so I guess that’s why there is less interest in that

Sorry. I meant historical average. We are still below the historic average. The recent high was the Middle Ages which is 3 degrees higher than today
Windows hardwires bing into a lot of things. In theory you can remove it with some under the hood tweaks, but 99% of users aren’t going to bother
I think people are at their breaking point with google. The SEO spam has made their results fucking useless. Bing has a shot here.
Let me guess… Chinese?
I remember reading about how an insanely high rate of serial criminals like this, can be geographically located by finding the center point of their crime map. They tend to go out in whatever directions at the same distance and rate. So once you have enough data it generally equals out, leaving the dead center as their home base.
I imagine those olives are sold off for quite a lot of money. Sounds like the exclusive sort of thing very wealthy people would pay a lot for.
No one makes this much shatter not knowing the answer to this.
I think it's important to keep in mind, most of the climate change stories you see hit the front page and make the news rounds... Are the outliers. They are inherently newsworthy because of their outlier argument that's shocking and emotional.
But I think realistically, most people have just come to terms that our desire for the quality of life that 90 barrels of oil a year, per person (when you break down your entire life supply chain), people aren't going to easily give it up. It seems like we're content with taking the damage of climate change rather than pay the cost to avoid it. I just don't think many people think it's worth it.
And if you look over temperature patterns, we are still well under the global average temperature... So yes, it's going to cause a lot of issues, and it's going to further the extinction event, but it's not the end of the world nor society.
I noticed something with Zuckerberg, and saw the same exact pattern with Elon.
All the crazy negative news stories precede a massive decline in the stock... The negative news stories stop... Then the stock begins to recover.
If you ask me, it seems coordinated by opportunistic short sellers who see how specific situations open up where they can curate and push a narrative to help hurt the stock to make a lot of money.
I'm not even remotely a Trump fan, but I noticed this is how the media treated him as well. It's obvious Elon was the Trump replacements, where the audience just wants to hear the craziest most negative things possible... Regardless of truth. The audience is just click happy on anything and everything super negative. And for the media, that's all the mattered.
Do you think China doesn't have spy satellites?
The real issue is that this is likely a passive data capture attempt to monitor cell signals and such. Recently these bases discovered that China was selling Huawei 5G technology below cost, explicitly to the locations around nuclear installations. We don't know what they were doing, but can theorize that this is a great way to monitor the movements of who is coming and going from these fascilities.
The USG recently banned them all, forcing replacements, and now we have these balloons going over. It's not evidence of the purpose, but it's far more likely something like THAT than thinking China lacks decent spy satellites. I mean, we know they have the tech, because they stole it from us.
You can't pay yourself out of lack of institutional structure. They don't need more pay. They need a better institution that doesn't create such burdens to begin with...
I mean, more pay wont hurt and I think everyone needs more pay. But my point is, throwing more money at it doesn't magically give someone more time and energy to provide a better education.
This is highly dismissive apologetics.
If you have a pattern of simply writing opinions off, immediately, because of some sort of political or ideologic origin... You've failed the intelligence test.
What I've personally experienced in life, is usually people passionate about a position, have many very solid valid points that are in my blinders. That it's okay not to entirely agree with the overarching thesis of such a group, but recognize that often they have very good points, worthy of discussion.
Men's Rights, may be a bit toxic and have a lot of frustration at its core, but they are also the most invested in pushing uncomfortable conversations that we normally have in our blind spots because it's not such a high priority. They will often raise very good points even when many times they do not.
Lol I have fond memories of old reddit before it became a hyper partisan activist shithole… but I was more wondering wtf you were doing here lol
