Why was Trump talking about sharks at a campaign event? ( www.usatoday.com )

"It must be because of M.I.T., my relationship with M.I.T., very smart. I say, 'What would happen if the boat sank from its weight and you're in the boat and you have this tremendously powerful battery, and the battery is now underwater, and there's a shark that's approximately 10 yards over there?" Trump said. "By the way, lot...

Biden should stay home and send blåhaj to the debates in his place.

Seems inefficient, couldn't the same thing be accomplished using local DBs rather than the world's most inefficient ledger?

What if we don't want global usernames? What if we're entirely satisfied with global user IDs in a DHT?

Trust, consensus, and access control are session-layer issues that don't need to be solved by a transport-layer protocol. Social networks deserve to be able to forget things.

It really isn't a different debate when you're talking about putting them on the blockchain, and all that other engineering has already been done by other distributed social networks.

Are you seriously incredulous at such a comparison?

Oh yeah, the base model F-350 starts at almost $50k and the top trim more than doubles that.

Biden is dramatically out of touch with voters on Gaza. He may lose because of it | Moira Donegan ( www.theguardian.com )

Many voters believe, with good reason, that none of this would have happened without Biden’s assent. Biden has continued to speak of Israel’s attack on Palestinian civilians using the absurd language of “self-defense”. He has insulted Jewish Americans and the memory of the Holocaust by invoking them to justify the...

Ok, but how?

Is there an option on the ballot for President that would allow me to vote without violating my conscience?

I'm not even asking for "perfect".

I'd be entirely satisfied by "tolerable", and genocide is nowhere near that.

That's what 401ks are already, it's absolutely going to pass so Republicans can start fleecing kids and blaming the stock market.

Economics, the dismal science, says there's no such things as independence or tamper-proofing.

"AI" didn't do that, C-suite executives who think that LLMs are capable of replacing human workers did that.

They'll be in for a surprise when the "AI" bubble pops. XD

Good, get it all offline so the LLM Assholes can't use it.

If it's the user's responsibility to secure the operating systems they use then isn't it both illogical and immoral for Microsoft to keep the source code secret?

The internet is a government project.
Without "Communism" you wouldn't even have a single website, imagine that.

You mean Orwell's classic anti-capitalist novel wherein a worker's rebellion against tyrannical bosses is betrayed by capitalist pigs who re-create the farm's original conditions for their own profit?
