It should also be pointed out that modern protest movements aren’t particularly tactical. In fact, these people largely suck at it.

You all know how much this country hates homeless and homeless-adjacent people, and yet, you opt to camp out in public areas anyway.

Here’s a darn good article on why your protests fail: www.americanpurpose.com/…/caring-isnt-enough/

Netflix Windows app is set to remove its downloads feature, while introducing ads (www.techradar.com)

Netflix has managed to annoy a good number of its users with an announcement about an upcoming update to its Windows 11 (and Windows 10) app: support for adverts and live events will be added, but the ability to download content is being taken away....

Canceled mine.

Sailing the high seas works just fine.

“The purpose is not solely religious,” Sen. Jay Morris, R-West Monroe, told the Senate. Rather, it is the Ten Commandments’ "historical significance, which is simply one of many documents that display the history of our country and foundation of our legal system.”

Only two of them are actually law: Thou shalt not murder and thou shalt not steal.

This is all about religion, and they’re going to get away with it. We’d be better off if our legal codes were based on the seven tenets instead.

That only applies to the Old Testament passages that forbid usury, of course.

I went through 18 years of being forced to go to church and never learned the word.

Methinks that was purposeful.

All the time, and especially for cops. (It’s called ‘qualified immunity’ and ‘civil forfeiture’ instead of murdering and stealing, but it’s the same thing.)

Wow.

Dude had the Hitler mustache toward the end. Bold choice.

The US (well, at least our legislators) are getting paid a lot of money to look the other way, and couldn’t care less how children are affected.

That requires one to acknowledge there’s a problem and then summon the will to change it, which isn’t a hallmark of radicalism.

Hard downvote.

This is an institutional problem, not an individual one.

FB markets its platform as safe and respectful of security, but it’s exactly the opposite on both fronts and that is a proven fact. It’s deliberately addictive, has led to widespread radicalization and mental illness in its users, and steals people’s personal information.

It’s the digital equivalent of marketing cigarettes to kids, only more harmful.

FB absolutely needs to be investigated and held accountable.

Proportion distortions aside, it’s pretty accurate.

This joke made me snort my coffee. Please accept my humble upvote.

That’s valid.

Same, except I am a legal tech and professional artist.

I love that I can make my money in a dark, air-conditioned room and just read about all the cool shit we’re learning about dinosaurs.

Old Man Logan’s really good for Marvel

On the DC Side, I enjoyed the hell out of the Forever Evil event and its various offshoots.

I’d also recommend checking out the indie titles put out by Boom and Image. There’s a lot of great work being made in the non-superhero stories.

Court of Owls

I second this rec. It was a fantastic storyline.

Tacking on here after X-Men were mentioned:

The adjectiveless X-Men of the early 90’s was a great volume, beginning with a stellar run sketched by Jim Lee.

So… when people ask you questions you repeat ads verbatim?

FlashMobOfOne,
@FlashMobOfOne@lemmy.world avatar

Yup.

It’s such garbage.

I am far from an ACAB person, but I do not understand what goes on in US police training that if someone’s actively struggling with you

They don’t have to.

They enjoy it. The cruelty is the point.

ACAB

Lots and lots and lots of empty places.

At least half of the retail space is basically dead.

My old shopping mall filled the half-empy food court with a climbing gym for kids and a massive video arcade, which is cool. It’s more like a flea market than a mall now because the storefronts that are occupied are all local retailers.

Oddly enough, the old cookie shop in the mall is still going strong and making the same great stuff. Apparently that place is timeless.

There are some good responses here.

I’d also add that any time something’s making you uncomfortable at work, it’s a good rule of thumb to document it. Who said what, date and time, etc.

It’s just good to have that info in case someone’s behavior gets worse.

People have done dumb shit for fame and glory ever since ancient times. Remember Herostratus?

He did something incredibly stupid to get famous.

And it worked.
