Jurassic Park.

Everyone was blown away, like holy shit, that was amazing

I just deleted my entire library and redownloaded it.

A lot of my files were shitty 480p versions of movies from the Napster days. Now they’re all 1080p, with a few 720p exceptions (mainly tv series episodes). All in all 500 something files in total. Now just watching uTorrent slowly download them all. Hopefully my VPN keeps the eyes off of me…

It's good in the sense that it's the last version before it got enshittified by ads, but the now nearly-legendary v2.2.1 is also 5 years behind in security patches. It was an awesome, fast, stable client and I miss it, but I don’t think it's worth the risk. Like you and everyone else has been saying, OP should be using Qbittorent.

But if it's satire, then what does GOP mean? Gross Old People? Oooh I like that, we should make it a thing.

I just read that README, quite sobering. Now I'm thinking of bus scenario backup plans. Like, there's stuff that is eventually gonna stop working if left unattended too long, and you just assume you're gonna be around to maintain it, you know?

“The reason is, people hate Jews,” Ostroy said. The host then briefly expounded upon the pervasiveness of antisemitism before concluding, “You know, if we use the wrong pronouns on college campuses, there’d be an uproar.”

“Oh my god, forget it,” Margulies answered. “It’s those kids who are spewing this antisemitic hate that have no idea if they stepped foot in an Islamic country—these people who want us to call them they/them, or whatever they want us to call them...

Wow. What the fuck, lady.

Temba, his arms wide! Stats don't look ground-breaking or anything, but 12 is a hell of a turn rate for a cruiser.

Could've sworn the ship was Andorian from the thumbnail

I like feeling up and happy and in a good mood, though - so I guess I'm an outlier, a holdover from another age.

"Relic from the previous century," that's what I like to call myself.

Note: The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) is quite good. It has a solid performance by Michael Caine, who carries on as though it's an all-human cast.

Ah, you were just a bit before my time. I'm a Gen Xer and grew up watching A Christmas Story when it first aired on tv, which I think is another great example of a happy holiday movie. I can't believe I mentioned The Muppet Christmas Carol before it, hah. Yeah, I liked A Christmas Story when I was a kid, but I love it now that I'm older and get the more adult references. My wife and I keep it in the regular Christmas viewing rotation along with A Charlie Brown Christmas, which in my opinion are perfect when you want to feel the ol' winter warm & fuzzies. They're so comforting in a way.

Yeah, a marketing ploy by a fascist organization:

While SkyTree Book Fairs presents itself as an independent non-profit organization, it appears to be a hastily assembled offshoot of Brave Books, which publishes children's books by right-wing pundits and pseudo-celebrities.

Fuckin gross.

Lol this really sucks for Plex users, but I'm glad I left that steaming pile of shit software. I've been using Jellyfin for two years now and have never had to deal with sudden new shitty default-on features that appear from out of nowhere. Not once. With Plex, that happened like every other release. I don't miss it.

Sry but you're too late, I already paid a visit to Post Nut Clarity bank

FBI Labels Anti-Fascists and Anti-Racists as Violent Extremists (unicornriot.ninja)

A recently released Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) document titled “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide”* links common protest symbols to “terrorism” — another marker in a common theme of conflating militant protest for social justice with deadly terrorist violence within the United States. Groups like the American...

That is really cool and looks incredibly cozy, especially this time of year. Part of me wants to try this with space heaters mounted into the wall for a more immersive experience, but I'm realizing as I type this out that I don't need another stupid way to for me to burn down the house.

Ah thanks, I didn't know they made stuff like that!

In the Hamas/Israel war, why does Palestine have "hostages" but Israel has "prisoners"?

This occurred to me while listening to the news. When they exchange people it’s always hostages for people held in Palestine and prisoners for people held in Israel. Why is that? Is it just perception or is there a practical difference?...

Because everyone knows only terrorists take hostages, so using the term to describe one side tells the public who to think is the terrorist side without having to actually say it.

This is a family air loom that I inherited from my mom. Oh, thank you, she's not dead, she lives in Jacksonville. I don't know if it's an original or a knockoff, I just want to know if it's worth anything. (i.postimg.cc)

Before mom moved to Jacksonville, when she was still... deep breath I'm sorry, this is hard. It feels like it was just last week. She used to....what was that, honey?...

I know, it's part of the joke

I think so, I heard she married an American Gladiator or something

It's intentional, it's part of the joke lol
