@FaceDeer@kbin.social

Basically a deer with a human face. Despite probably being some sort of magical nature spirit, his interests are primarily in technology and politics and science fiction.

Spent many years on Reddit and is now exploring new vistas in social media.

And I saw someone being an asshole regarding their preferences.

Make that two, I suppose.

What is it with this extremism? People don't instantly turn into heaps of rotting garbage the moment they neglect to put some chemicals on their underarms.

Yes. Is "biohazard warning" not hyperbolic in the extreme?

This guy routinely spams about this. Recently he was suggesting that UFOs were shooting them down. I don't think he's going to listen.

Where do you think the satellites are going when they fall out of orbit?

This is exactly how the system is designed to work. SpaceX has launchers cheap enough to make this economical.

It's priced into the system's economics. This article is sensationalizing a nothingburger.

Yeah, I've seen this guy posting waves of spam about this single issue for what seems like months now. He does it until he gets banned and then comes back with a new account a while later.

Last time around he was talking about how UFOs were shooting Starlink satellites down. At this point it's pretty clear to me he's got issues.

Well, Russia collapsing and fragmenting would reshape the world order, it's true...

It's down near the end of the article, for those who want to get right to it:

There was a scene with Kirk on the bridge of the Bird of Prey. They cut out five lines where Kirk says to Saavik, 'Have you told him yet?' And she says, 'No. I'm taking a maternity leave.'

That would've been a bombshell development in Trekland. "That's why she's standing with Amanda [Grayson, Spock's human mother] when the Bird of Prey leaves," said Meerson. "Because Amanda knows Saavik is carrying Spock's kid. All they did was cut out five lines of dialogue, and you lost that whole thing."

True. But headlines like this that tease some specific fact that could easily be fit into the lead for those who are interested in that specific fact and instead bury it deep in the article inherently annoy me.

FaceDeer,

Yeah. No way to prevent this, says only nation etc.

As a counterpoint, I have clothes hooks in my front foyer. So that's one place that it would make a lot of sense to use one of these.

I still don't see why I'd want to hide a camera in something that's explicitly designed to have clothing draped over it, though. Seems like there are better things in my foyer to disguise a camera in.

And also, the bathroom seems like a prime location for a child abuser to corner a victim.

Huh. I'm actually swinging very slightly back toward Amazon's side on this. Only very slightly, though. This is a tricky case.

The list of features for the "ransomware" example he had ChatGPT help him write is almost identical to the list of features that would be present in a piece of software that was designed to help dissidents protect sensitive information from an oppressive government.

New aid pledges for Ukraine fall to lowest levels since the start of the war, report says (www.cbsnews.com)

Ukraine’s allies have dramatically scaled back their pledges of new aid to the country, which have fallen to their lowest level since the start of the war, the German-based Kiel Institute’s Ukraine aid tracker showed Thursday....

May not work so well for them this time, General Winter seems to be on Ukraine's side.

I think I'll leave it up to the Ukrainians to decide that. They're better informed than I am and they're the ones who'll be paying.

And Quebec separatism wasn't its own particular flavour of pre-MAGA MAGA? I think Quebec would have done a fine job of turning it into a shitshow on its own.

FaceDeer,

It’s obviously a form of nationalism, but that’s not really what I was getting at.

Well, that's what I was getting at. MAGAism is at its heart a nationalist movement, an "our people are better than those people and we'll be better off keeping those people out!" Thing.

FaceDeer,

It's been quite a while, but I recall back during the height of separatism there were rumblings about both the First Nations of the northern portions of Quebec and even Montreal that in the event that Quebec separated from Canada they'd want to separate in turn from Quebec. To which Quebec would of course go "but not like that!" And that could lead to quite a mess.

Frankly, what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander - if Quebec won out on the "countries can have bits decide to leave if they want to" argument then more power to those parts of Quebec that subsequently want out of there and maybe back into the rest of Canada again.

This post, yes. The satellites themselves, no. Starlink satellites are designed to quickly deorbit and burn up when they're no longer useful.

FaceDeer,

Oh, it's you again.

Insert the usual "this is exactly how Starlink's constellation and business plan are supposed to work, you're obsessing about some kind of weird conspiracy theory" response here.

So, wait, you're fine with Mozilla impersonating you as long as you get a little money in the process?

Not that this is what Mozilla wants this data for, mind you, I'm just puzzled by this place you've jumped to.

Yes. If you're wanting to know how many resources mining a transaction takes, that's the value you need to look at. The block reward effectively goes into subsidizing the transaction fees that are being paid.
