Imagine voting for a man for President whose followers terrify jurors in one of his criminal trials so much that they back out after jury selection. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/live/2024/apr/18/donald-trump-trial-updates?page=with:block-662120da8f082ca1ade07f9a#block-662120da8f082ca1ade07f9a

@stevesilberman I feel like anyone still supporting him after he took children from their parents and put them in cages, will likely not be deterred by some light jury intimidation.

There are AI or otherwise programmatically generated "How To" pages. This one on shortening your dishwasher hose has an interesting choice of image...

If your hose looks like that the "shortening" isn't going to go very well.

@futurebird If only our common technologies actually displayed that level of biomorphism.

The most unrealistic thing about Reacher is when he goes into a thrift store in a small town where everyone gawks at his size because they’ve never seen anyone quite like him… and he instantly finds clothes that fit.

If this was the internet I’d say this is evidence of a time loop and they were actually his old clothes from the previous time around.

@NanoRaptor Plenty of XXXL clothes at thrift stores since when they are donated, it is rare for someone of that size to come in to buy them.

@lzg I almost responded to a thread about bernie's role in the 2016 election and then imagined getting notifications for the next eight years about it.

Contemplating the trope of trans serial killers in fiction, I look up "list of serial killers in the United States" on Wikipedia. Over 650 identified serial killers are listed. Two are trans. So, less than 0.3 percent of known serial killers in the US are trans. Our best estimates put trans people betwen 0.5 to 1.5 percent of the total US population. Trans people are less likely to be serial killers than cis people.

@CarlMuckenhoupt @passenger Or less likely to get caught... 🤔

Well today my tummy reacted to the reintroduction of legumes. I am glad I followed the diet and did not add other things because now I know. But to be fair I only experienced a slight improvement on the diet.
Next will be non gluten grains like corn, oats, quinoa. But one more day of whole foods before doing that.

mikemccaffrey,
@mikemccaffrey@mastodon.social avatar

@Adventurer Someone was saying recently that they thought that they were gluten intolerant, but it turned out that they were sensitive to FODMAPs. You might want to check that out (if that is not what you are already looking into), since legumes are on the list of foods that you want to avoid if that is the case: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/wellness-and-prevention/fodmap-diet-what-you-need-to-know

@Adventurer You just have to take up fermentation then, and render any food safe from FODMAPs!

Blasting music to try to distract myself from thinking about the infuriating state of the world. So far, only a very few songs have worked, but this is one of them.

Wow, just came across this live video of #PJHarvey playing Dress at a festival in 2003, and I think I might actually like the vocals in this version just as much if not better than the original.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A29BMj3v86w

On a related note, I don't think there is anything better than a song that rhythmically plunges forward like an unstoppable freight train.

Outrageous that #NPR.org posted an article (not linked since it should not get clicks) titled "RFK Jr. may have missed a major opportunity with his VP pick" as if he were a serious political candidate worthy of public consideration and not a #ConspiracyTheory #AntiVax wackjob.

Please please please, #journalists and editors, do your job of helping society actually function better instead of allowing everything to collapse into ruin.

@tomw My favorite example was how the "Summer of Sharks" actually had less shark attacks than an average year.
