I’m too stupid to figure out how to post gifs so imagine that I posted that grossed out/skeptical looking toddler here please.

Yes, this one. Thank you.

If my mother hears about this she’s going to start screaming about blood clots again.

Yeah and the “documentary” on it is complete bullshit.

As someone who doesn’t have a license or a car, but does bike a lot - there will be solutions.

I order my groceries delivered. When I needed to get my old bed recycled, I asked the second hand store and they came and picked it up. They weren’t interested in the broken mattress for it (obviously), so I contacted a moving company and they had it recycled for $40.

Now I get that that cost might be hard to swallow for some, but keep in mind that I don’t pay for my car, its insurance, the fuel, or maintenance, and it took less than five minutes for me to be done with the entire thing. All I had to do was open my front door and two burly men came and picked it up for me. I didn’t even have to wait at the recycling station.

Those $40 paid for themselves.

It’s also worth noting that I do live in the frozen north (not Canada, further north), where we don’t see the sun for half the year. I see people biking year round.

I actually asked IKEA if they would recycle the old bed, but sadly they stopped that during corona and there hasn’t been much demand for the service since so they just don’t offer that anymore.

Segue: I’d bought my previous bed from MIO. It was a continental, bought right at the start of corona because at the time companies had massive discounts since they were scared that people would stop spending during the pandemic. At the time it replaced my 15 year old bed that was really worn, and at 50% off (7k instead of 14, currency is SEK) I was like “wow, what a steal!”

Then the middle mattress broke after less than three years. Couldn’t figure out why I had such a big divot in the middle of the bed, but as it turns out the side had broken and as such the springs had all gotten misaligned.

Called them in September, three years and six months or so after purchase. Turns out that the bed had a 10 year warranty but the mattress only had 3.

So I had to buy a new bed, much cheaper (like 6K with the mattress), from IKEA, and their mattress has a TEN year warranty. It’s also much firmer and more supportive so I regret not just going with them in the first case.

Never buying shit from MIO again.

You are antiemetic though. I feel quite comfortable deepthroating you.

Ah, it’s ambigaus again, is it?

Trying to overcome the bias in your dataset by introducing a bias of your own won’t work. You’re just setting yourself up to get a ridiculously (unintentionally) racist image of an “Ethinically Ambigaus” Homer Simpson.

Edit: fixed fucked sentence. Dunno what drugs I was on when I wrote that.

Air Canada had to shut down their AI chatbot because it was making up refund policies and costing them money.

HA. I fucking love that.

Honestly. At this point trying to save the environment is too late, but it would be nice now that some politics are finally heading in that direction, if this anti-repair bullshit would be legislated out of existence.

Add a cost on carbon emissions, and fine companies that manufacture things that aren’t designed to be repaired.

If I buy something, I ought own it and have the final say with who does what with my property. I don’t care if Samapplesoftabet decides that they don’t like it, if they want so much control over my thing they should buy it back from me.

We don’t actually know if this is the case or not.

The recent IPCC Sixth Assessment Report states that there’s high confidence that the equilibrium climate sensitivity (how much the temperature will rise long-term if a doubling of atmospheric carbon dioxide occurs) lies between 2.5-4C, with a best estimate being 3C. Several models predict a higher sensitivity than that, 4+, and have been disregarded for being too extreme and not aligning with historical data.

The major difference between these hotter models compared to the older ones is in the way they model cloud processes and their effect on the overall climate system. So, recent claims have been made that historical climate data (specifically an ECS of 4.8 ± 1.2C) when taking these new cloud models into account.

Which basically means that all our worst-case scenarios for climate change might actually be too optimistic, and we should be doing significantly more than we actively are right now.

The thing is, the things we need to do are costly, diminish quality of life, and won’t be directly beneficial to the economy. We’re going to have to sow proverbial trees whose shade we’ll never sit under. Going by historical data, that won’t happen. We’ve known that carbon dioxide affects the climate since the 1800s. We’ve known that humanity’s extreme carbon emissions have an effect on the climate since the early-mid 1900s. We’ve done fuck all about it.

We might only have a couple of decades before the area around the equator becomes more or less uninhabitable. What do you think will happen when billions of climate refugees travel north in search of succor?

@dojan@lemmy.world avatar

Oh no, I don’t deny climate change. Quite the opposite, I think we’ve done way too little way too late for it to truly matter.

I just think the collapse of society due to decades of unsustainable consumption and frankly ridiculous thinking is inevitable. Year on year companies strive for infinite growth and the majority economical system promotes it?

At this point I’m simply past caring. It’s incredibly sad that the people that will be hit first are those that already don’t have much, but there’s nothing I can do.

It’s fine though. I’m not planning to be around long enough to see things go to hell anyway.

dojan,
@dojan@lemmy.world avatar

Oh yeah. Absolutely. It’d be amazing if the powers that be got their arse in gear and actually did shit. I’ll keep walking everywhere, reusing plastic bags, and not travelling like I’ve always done, but it won’t save the planet.

We need extreme fees on carbon emissions, and all the nuclear, solar, hydroelectric, and wind power we can get, and we need them twenty-thirty years ago.

I think the concepts are what is getting people. Like you say, the characters are shallow, but the ideas are food for thought and feel decently novel, at least to me.

I genuinely do not get the hype of integrating LLMs fucking everywhere. There are places it makes sense, like word processors and email clients. Then there are places it doesn’t make sense, like as an aside in my desktop environment. No one’s going to use it. It’s Cortana all over again.

Why I left Startrek.website, created TenForward, and the admin abuse I've suffered from ST.W since then

tl;dr The admins of Startrek.website are censoring users, have been harassing me across multiple websites, and have tried to convince the admins of other instances to ban me because I didn’t remove comments that were critical of them on TenForward which I only made in turn because the mod of Risa was doing whatever he wanted...

Some stuff personally happened and I got fairly depressed and took a break from lemmy entirely.

I was wondering where you’d gone off to. Used to see you all the time, then suddenly poof. I hope you’re doing better now.

There were CUDA cores before RTX. I can run LLMs on my CPU just fine.

Is Truck Trump actually able to run for president?

Edit: typo.

dojan,
@dojan@lemmy.world avatar

I just find it really weird that you can be under such heavy legal proceedings and still be eligible to hold office, like in general. If a teacher is suspected of being inappropriate with students, they’re pulled. If a president is inappropriate with democracy, they can run a second term?

Last time I expressed my incredulousness over this, I was told “innocent until proven guilty”, but again, with the above example; if a teacher is suspected of being inappropriate towards student, they are pulled and put on leave for the investigation.

It seems to me that Trump shouldn’t be allowed to be the president incumbent until all the legal stuff he’s through clears.

I can definitely believe that there are carbon credit projects that are beneficial in the long-term, hell I don’t even write off reforestation completely (although I know that it’s a lot more complicated than chucking some saplings in the ground and calling it a day), but the question is how much of the carbon credit programmes are actually beneficial? This article by The Guardian suggests that the majority of the top 50 programmes aren’t.

some people need to drive to work

A bit off topic, but this one kind of strikes a note on a npersonal level with me. I personally think we should punish companies that don’t offer WFH where it makes sense.

My roomie for example is a truck driver. It would be impossible for him to work from home. I’m a software developer, and I do work from home, but a lot of companies in my industry are pushing for a return to office, and even removing the option to work from home altogether. We all saw the immediate effects the covid restrictions had on the environment. I know it’s not feasible for everyone to work from home, but not letting people work from home, when their job could be done remotely, ought be a finable offense.

The thing is, there is no accountability for corporations. They are free to do more or less as they please, and when they do get caught with egg on their face, the fines are usually just a light slap on the wrist. Conversely, if a private individual attempted the same things, they’d get hit with legal fees and fines that’d take them into bankruptcy.

We’ll never see a change until there’s some sort of equality between the two.

Oh wow! The refreshrate on that is surprisingly fast! Is this via VNC or is the processor on that device just that speedy?

That’s really cool! I have to see what type of Kobo reader I have because this feels like a weekend project.
