Norgur,

That's not how governments work

Norgur,

That, again, is not how governments work.
What you depict is how companies work: You save amount X on something, so there are X moneys left to invest in something.
Governments work with separated and highly regulated budgets. That is sometimes bullshit, but sometimes necessary to make sure government aids are spent fairly, for example. So: You save amount X on something, you aren't allowed to just give this amount to someone. There has to be either a program, a law, or (most often) an entirely different budget somewhere else that this someone is allowed to receive.

So the “trade-off” logic cannot be fulfilled by governments, and it shouldn't be. Think about the myriad of bullshit, money would just be dumped into by the government if this wasn't the case. On top of the myriad of bullshit that already made it through the nets, that is.

Norgur,

Can we talk less about AI inevitably doing what AI always dies and fuck up and instead talk about the website that uses AI resources to dangle an even more juicy carrot in front of desperate people throwing away their money with the lottery?

Norgur,

Okay, I was really irritated there at first, reading the headline as "60% of games are for six-year-olds and older" and I went "yeah, no shit, Sherlock"... Glad it was my fault. I'm posting this so whoever is embarrassed because they just did a dumb-dumb or remembered that one dumb-dumb they did that one time may laugh at my dumb ass and feel better about themselves.

Norgur,

"the old Internet" is pre-social-media, dude. If you were moody back then, you put a Comic sans text on your free lycos Webspace, and if you were really fed up, you made it blink!

Norgur,

Who signed the Manga Carta?

Spitfire Mk VIII

When was the papal decree to excommunicate Charles le magne passed?

Panther

Norgur,

It's... Uh... About girls in short school uniforms in tanks...and the girls are all very... Uh pretty in a, let's say, stimulating way, but it's not a problem because in reality they aren't underage girls but five thousand year old dragons. They usually fight for way over two seasons per fight and yell everything they are doing loudly.
Come on, you have to know that manga!

Norgur,

In 5 sentences, explain the specific mindset that lead to the Franco-prussian waron the Prussian side and explain how this mindset shaped the Prussian culture.

The Spitfire totally rocked World War II with its sleek design and superior agility, making it the ultimate aerial ace. Unlike the clunky Messerschmidt BF109, the Spitfire could outmaneuver its foes with ease, like a ninja in the sky. Its Rolls-Royce engine gave it the power to soar higher and faster, leaving the BF109 trailing in its wake. Plus, the Spitfire had style for days, with its iconic elliptical wings and badass British flair. When it comes to dogfights, the Spitfire was the undisputed champ, leaving the BF109 eating its dust every time.

(Don't @ me for this response, I had ChatGPT do it)

Norgur,

But there are needlessly sexualized underage people, yes? If not, why did the description make you think of that?

Norgur,

Does it count if they are delivered instead of hidden?

Norgur,

Don't worry, folks. The crews of those planes are way more paranoid about anything that could happen than you could possibly imagine. I'd bet the time a standard go-around takes has about tripled for most Boeing flight crews with new-ish jets

Night lights that detect light levels are probably flickering so fast that it just appears to be on

Ok so I got this idea not while showering, but because I’m very high. The story does come from my bathroom though! I have a night light in my bathroom, and I was looking at the night light as I turned off the bathroom light. I’m a big nerd so I remembered that the things that detect light levels are actually diodes wired in...

Norgur,

Now take an LED light that has the exact opposite frequency to your local power grid and hold it onto the sensor. The night light won't know what hit it!

Norgur,

Why the fuck is everyone in here acting like fucking breast milk is akin to laxatives or "harmful substances" and that it was put in there to harm someone? Young mothers at work often need to pump their milk so
a) someone can give their baby at home said milk the next day in a bottle
b) the milk production doesn't decline.
I hope you all know that.
So that could just be the container she chose to store her milk in throughout the day. Besides… breast milk is not fucking harmful. Where the fuck have you lot been educated?

Norgur,

If there is a little less in there than she expected every day, it might take a few days until she realizes that someone is using it… so this hasn't got to be the gotcha thing at all
And the mere notion that someone really thinks sperm and breast milk are even in the remotest sense comparable in this context is utterly laughable to me. In a really upsetting kind of way. I mean... have you ever for even two seconds thought about the notion that breast milk has absolutely no sexual component whatsoever? Like... none at all.

Norgur,

Everything is awesome!
Everything is cool, when you're a part of a team!

Norgur,

No, it's not that. It's a form of therapy that is highly controversial, and mostly stems from the observation that autistic humans can be brought to “behave” like “normal people” if they are sufficiently conditioned to do that. Yet, it is not founded in religious BS, but rather a result of behavioral approaches to psychology that have been very popular, especially in the US and Canada at least since the 60s (like many addiction-therapies and such). Behavioral therapies aren't bad outright, but have spawned some questionable offspring (like all approaches in medicine tend to do). “Conversion camps” are such offspring. Regarding ABA: While many studies indicate that ABA does, in fact, bring autistic people to behave more like non-autistic people, that in itself is not evidence that the therapy is working. If depressive people behave like I want them to and get out of bed to clean the house because I hold a gun to their head, they are not “cured”. The same goes for this kind of therapy. There are merits to the principles of the approaches bundled under the term “ABA”, but the line between “helping Autistic people” and “torturing autistic people” is razor-thin. Unfortunately, many approaches that call themselves “ABA” are crossing that line, as do many therapists who deny people breaks or meals, or worse.

You know? Humans are cruel dumpster fires of bullshit once they think what they do is right and "for the best".

Norgur,

Well, if you want to know how gender inequality works, just ask the Saudis.

Norgur,

Hello, I am a weirdo. How may I harass you today?

Norgur,

Sorry to say this but no… it's not startling it…. Well… reeks a bit. Could you just clean your code occasionally?

Norgur,

Wasn't this app some exclusive thing for a marketing scheme in Kenya for Android Go? If so… maybe your phone has a… African history?

Norgur,

Breaking news: Water has been found to be wetter than desert sand!
More after the weather report!

Norgur,

Thing is you don't know if the answer is good. The answer looks good, yes, but how could you tell if ChatGPT just pulled the thing you looked for out of it's digital behind?

Since no upvotes are possible, the 'Hot' and 'New' pages of Kbin should show the same content. That's kinda awesome

Browsing by new was great in the early days of the first Kbin expansion, right after the reddit migration. I got to see all sorts of posts from interesting communities. Things you wouldn't normally see browsing under 'Hot'. Eventually, as thread numbers increase, I found myself using 'Hot' almost exclusively because it delivered...

Norgur,

We are working on resolving the issues

Over the next few days, there will be a change in server infrastructure. Temporary problems with the website's functionality may occur during this time.
