Google released Gemini, and pulled it because it produced black nazis. Google released AI Overviews, and pulled it because it says put glue on pizza. Google releases major products and doesn't seem to know they're disasters. How does Sundar Pichai still have a job?

@bagder Nice! A rare case of a food thing that originated in the US (at least the pecan part, not the pie concept) and spread to Europe (it's usually the other way around). : )

Dog-killing Trump loyalist and VP candidate Kristi Noem got her book ("No Going Back") published on Amazon today, and some of the reviews are pure gold:

"When you have a gun everything looks like a puppy"

"How did this get published?"

And my favorite so far: "My cat loved this book" https://www.amazon.com/No-Going-Back-Politics-America/dp/B0CTNX1VKK/ref=sr_1_1
