There's an $18 minimum wage in Denver, for instance. Republicans sure as hell didn't vote for that.

Splitting the Dem vote with third parties is a good way to get Trump elected. So it’s a sideways way of voting for extreme fascism.

That can be a claim, whether or not they're disputing the basic facts, that the situation doesn't match the specific crime the defendant is accused of.

Surprised that's a new law. In NM recently, in a particularly stupid case, some 14 year old kid shot his friend, a girl, I think on accident... then dragged her body outside and made up an idiotic story about how it was a unknown-motive drive-by and someone in a black SUV shot her. Anyway, his dad had a ton of guns just casually laying around their trailer or house or whatever. The father has been charged with 'negligent making a firearm accessible to a minor resulting in death'.

Yes, this is a great example of that.

Do you often hear the ringing of switching power supplies and devices when you are in a quiet space?

I’m curious, how many people are aware of these sounds. I have designed, etched, and built my own switching power supplies along with winding my own transformers. I am aware of the source of the noise. So, does anyone else hear these high frequency sounds regularly?

Yes, I can hear them. Usually it’s not a problem but I have had 1-2 power adapters that annoyed me.

It's the law but due to how working for wage thieving losers works, it doesn't happen in practice.

I generally want people to be happy and I tip decently. As far as making under minimum, it’s set so low federally that someone would have to have no tables or be really bad to not make at least $8 an hour. I suppose it would be more likely in cities that have their own higher minimum like Denver ($18).

It's always amazing where some Republicans draw the line. Overt racism? Bizarre incoherence? Trying to overturn an election with a riot? Spousal assault previously documented in court? Paying off prostitutes with campaign money? Trying to use federal foreign aid money to start a fake smear campaign on an opponent? Calling up state election officials and pressuring them to create a bullshit election investigation? Politicizing public health because you're vain about your weird makeup? Mocking disabled people? Having Russian officials over to the White House and destroying the translator's notes? Saying things about women like "bleeding out of her whatever"? Demonstrating a pattern of fraudulent accounting for decades? No problem. But this ONE thing, that's too much.

China isn't desperate enough to invade half of Europe and threaten to nuke everyone, though.

There was a slightly different version of this around a month or two ago where the whole class was Navajo

Somehow this became a cultural thing in the US. In some other countries like in South America it’s perfectly normal for 3-4 generations to live under 1 roof.

My guess is it’s tied to making people spend more money for capitalism. The effect it’s had on families is not very positive. It leads to things like elderly people draining thousands from their savings or family members a month for nursing homes. People have to hire child care when otherwise family members could watch a child. Children grow up with more distance from older relatives. Buying additional homes and cars is way more expensive than sharing them. Additional cable and utility bills. More appliances. More food waste.

I'll add one two letter word in case you were confused.

It’s almost amazing how shitty these turned out to be. As someone who already hated Tesla, I’m proud.

The confusion in his eyes that says it all... Mike's lost control again...

Splendid! According to his own beliefs he'll be tortured by satan for an infinite amount of time.

It's really such an insane theory though. You get .01 through 100 years on earth, and if you screw up your one shot, you're rewarded or punished for eternity? Just nuts. I have no idea why people would feel normal telling themselves and each other this.

It happens all the time in southwestern cuisine. Cubed potatoes are pretty common in breakfast burritos and of course I'd put salsa on that.

Come to think of it, I've seen picante sauce in baked potato fixin' bars.

What's good and what people think is normal for certain foods is in a large part cultural context and habit. If people weren't used to it, I doubt if someone saying "you know, what these fried potatoes need is a lacto-fermented tomato sauce with onion, garlic, spices and vinegar" would sound appetizing.

That makes sense to me. I bet it would be a lot like guac if you added oil and more seasonings. It's not like an avocado really tastes like much of anything by itself.

Same. Facebook is of course horrible and has been a net loss for humankind, but Reddit and Elron Musk have managed to demonstrate that things could be even worse.

I'm sure the algorithm will do a passable but terrible job, like their AI moderation. The problem I see is it gives them further excuses about censoring certain topics from people's feed, while allowing through the political speech they want people to see.

I'd bet anything about labor unions is 'political' but some shit article like 'work from home is bad for your mental health' is not.
