ImplyingImplications,

I remember once I couldn’t connect to the PlayStation network which prevented me from playing multiplayer games. It lasted a few days so I ended up sending an email to their customer support. They wrote back “you’ve been banned from the playstation network for a week. Please see below your chatlog from PlayStation Home:

‘Haha it looks like you’re sucking my dick. lol suck it yeah’”

Very much an “understandable, have a nice day” moment. I figured I’d be banned from PlayStation Home, not the entire PlayStation network.

my daughters think abortion is cool and my son thinks communism is awesome

So the article is saying since the income of rich people can fluctuate by millions of dollars each year, the amount of taxes they pay also fluctuates by large amounts, and that makes budgeting hard. The solution is to instead tax the average person. Budgeting is easy since they make the same every year and so the tax collected will always be the same.

Do rich people think we’re idiots? This reads like Tom Sawyer convincing his friends to paint the fence for him.

I know nothing of childhood development, but considering the sound a cow makes is different depending on the language of the speaker, I’d assume it’s less about teaching children the sound a cow makes and more about teaching the sounds that exist in your language.

ImplyingImplications,

Planes take off and land into the wind so they don’t crash. Runways are built in the directions wind blows, and wind direction tends to be pretty consistant, so an airport’s runways often all face the same direction.

The Pentagon needs to have Elon Musk sit in on their Russia-Ukraine meetings because he owns 50% of all satellites in orbit and if he wanted to he could single handedly sway the war effort. Some guy with money literally bought his way into top level Pentagon meetings.

Amateur. King Louis XV was the ruler of France at just 5 years old

Medical practitioner influencers who are spreading FUD and pseudo-science, can they be held liable in the USA? Do platforms they're on have no obligation to protect users from such harm?

The person I am talking about is Dr. Palaniappan Manickam aka Dr. Pal, a board-certified gastroenterologist from Sacramento, California, who is also a YouTuber. He’s created various videos targeting Indian netizens, most of which are decent, but not without adding his own twist of misinformation, that are considered...

ImplyingImplications,

there is no clear definition of what constitutes science

My understanding is anyone who follows the scientific method is taking part in science. Some fields can’t completely follow the scientific method for practical reasons and they’re called “soft sciences” (ex. economics, due to experiments being difficult to carry out). If the scientific method isn’t followed, it isn’t science.

80s: corporations send hundreds of tonnes of trash to landfills while people are told to reduce the trash they generate

90s: corporations make everything plastic and disposable while people are told to recycle

00s: corporations cover the atmosphere in greenhouse gasses while people are told to reduce their carbon footprint.

10s: corporations buy politicians while people are told to vote.

ImplyingImplications,

Trailer Park Boys, set in Nova Scotia, Canada so kind of.

I’ve worked at so many places where there are multiple mid-level managers with overlapping responsibilities and staff. It just leads to conflicting orders and the people who get in trouble when things don’t get done are the workers and never the managers who issued impossible tasks.

ImplyingImplications,

Numberphile has a video breaking down the statistics and probability of RISK. Australia is indeed the worst continent to go for. The amount of troops it generates is relatively low compared to the other continents and it has only one way to attack. RISK rules favour attackers, so aggressively expanding in multiple directions is the best strategy!

ImplyingImplications,

My understanding is that some people are die hards to the software philosophy of “do one thing really well”. systemd at the very least does many different things. These people would prefer to chain a bunch of smaller programs together to replicate the same functionality of systemd since every program in the chain fits the philosophy of “does one thing really well”.

Crusader Kings 3? It’s not a shooter, but you can still kill the AI.

Edit: I also read Muslim games

He apparently did this a lot. There was 16 hours of voice lines for the genie in Aladdin that couldn’t be used, mostly because they were dirty jokes.

One of the most difficult things to learn about past societies is how the average person lived, because nobody would actually write that down.

ImplyingImplications,

I remember doing really well in high school chemistry. I learned all about the electrons orbiting the nucleous. I take chemistry in university and am immediately told that’s an outdated model from the 1900s nobody uses. Why the fuck did I study it then? Because quantum physics is complicated? So you just teach the wrong thing because the actual truth is complicated?? It’s really no wonder people have no scientific literacy when high schools explain how the world works like nobody has discovered anything new since 1913.

Does anyone remember these? This was a time before answering machines, hard line voice mail, beepers, cell phones etc? (lemmy.world)

At a business, a secretary, almost always a woman, would answer the phone for all calls. There were no direct lines into anyone. If you were in she would transfer the call to your office. If you were out she would use this pad to take messages. When you came back in to the office you would always stop at the front desk and you...

ImplyingImplications,

These are still used by secretaries in 2024. I did this up until I quit my office job. Not every company uses a voice mail.

ImplyingImplications,

This is a video of an ancient technique known as CBT

ImplyingImplications,

Those look like immigration records. Natural born citizens wouldn’t be found there. The page also says the records aren’t proof of citizenship but oddly can be used for employment or government purposes (I’m not sure what other purposes you’d use it for?).

No list is needed since someone is a Canadian citizen if they meet the definition in the Citizenship Act, not if their name is on a list.
