Pronouns and tribal affiliations are now forbidden in South Dakota public university employee emails (apnews.com)

A new South Dakota policy to stop the use of gender pronouns by public university faculty and staff in official correspondence is also keeping Native American employees from listing their tribal affiliations in a state with a long and violent history of conflict with tribes....

They’re not even pretending it’s “just” about pronouns anymore. Now it’s just overt racism. Not surprised they went for the indigenous first.

Incidentally, there are over 70,000 indigenous Americans living in South Dakota. Considering the state has less than a million people, that’s not insignificant, so this is going to fuck over more than one or two people.

On the one hand, I see what you’re saying. It sounds much like something my savior Jesus would say.

On the other hand, something something fuck them queers and Injuns.

I’m guessing the owner of a dinky 1971 Cessna most likely doesn’t care if they can be found on an FAA tracker website. Taylor Swift and Elon Musk, on the other hand…

Cool. Is there one shred of evidence beyond Elon’s spurious claim that has ever happened?

Because if you are famous enough to worry about that and rich enough to fly around in a private jet and that worries you, hire security.

Taylor Swift has been dealing with stalkers showing up at the airport for years

Can you show evidence of this? Because all I see when I search for Taylor Swift, airport and stalker are people watching her plane’s location online.

It also doesn’t make much sense to me. She wouldn’t be walking through the regular airport if she was flying in a private jet.

They made a shit ton of changes after Reagan got shot and no one has even come close since.

The confusing part is how these crazy stalkers (still haven’t shown that these people exist) get into the private area of the airport reserved for people who have private jets and chartered flights.

That doesn’t sound right. Has it seen a doctor?

Google Search’s “udm=14” trick lets you kill AI search for good | Ars Technica (arstechnica.com)

Tack “&udm=14” on to the end of a normal search, and you’ll be booted into the clean 10 blue links interface. While Google might not let you set this as a default, if you have a way to automatically edit the Google search URL, you can create your own defaults.

“For good.”

Until Google finds a workaround.

I don’t know how they make muffins where you live, but they make them wrong.

Bun

So… the thing burgers go on?

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Okay, well then I’m not sure what the issue is. The person is holding up a hamburger and the outside of the hamburger is the bun or the muffin or whatever.

Maybe it was kind of like getting B. A. Baracus into a helicopter- they had to drug him first.

No, USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D. But I can see why that would be confusing.

Clif Bars do not say they are healthy, but look at the packaging and think about what it is saying to the consumer.

It says “sustained energy.” Energy is good! So that must mean it’s good for you! And then there’s that healthy-looking mountain climber. That’s the sort of person who would eat a Clif Bar, right? A healthy mountain climber and not some person who sits on their butt in an office cubicle all day. And look at those mountains in the background! That’s nature! These bars must have natural ingredients!

It’s much more subtle than you think. And, like I said, it works.

That is suggesting that the lives of those hostages is more valuable than the lives of the thousands of innocent Palestinians who have been slaughtered and that is extremely morally dubious as a position.

I could, but I don’t feel like it. Why do you care?

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

You’re ignoring the fact that your supposed evidence contradicted your claim.

FlyingSquid,
@FlyingSquid@lemmy.world avatar

Your “evidence,” which I quoted, said that demand is no longer outpacing supply.

My point is that people will trust something that what sounds like it is being said sincerely by a living person more than they will regular text results a lot of the time because the “living person” sounds like they have emotions, which makes them sound like a member of our species, which makes them sound more trustworthy.

There’s a reason why predators sometimes disguise themselves, or part of themselves, as their prey. The anglerfish wouldn’t be as successful without that little light telling nearby fish “mate with me.”

Cannabis does not have to be inhaled to be used. Or are you saying you can get COPD from gummies?
