Nah, it’s not sad.

Some people have integrity, and others do not.

That’s all. <shrug>

It's easy to have armchair integrity. You're not the one who actually loses out on the sacks of cash. Google is an unfeeling machine. It doesn't care if you give it the finger. It's not going to lose any sleep or improve its customer service.

I do like people in here pretending like they'd turn down a shit ton of dollars just to give a middle finger to Google for having bad customer service. SAD!

Speaking of Supes, the first episode of the new Superman & Lois TV show was surprisingly good. Much less CW-ish than I expected.

But I will be cautiously optimistic about this movie. Abrams is an absolute garbage-spewer but Coates did a great job with his Black Panther comics. We'll see what happens, but DC movies don't have a great track record.

Or in this case, not his decision? His twitter is suspiciously absent of this news.
So, yeah, his decision.
I loathe him now.

Meh. I'd do the same if I had that kind of leverage and their customer service was jerking me around.

If Trump wasn't permanently banned he would have milked tens of millions of dollars from his cultists with this. Plus it would be fantastic for laundering bribes and illegal political contributions.

*sheesh* Guess being a celebrity's dog walker is no longer a safe job...

Why aren't dogs that expensive chipped? Cops really need to find those fuckers. Attemped murder for a couple of dogs. Those scum need to be locked up until the day they die.


The chips typically placed in animals are simple RFID thingies that vets can scan for when they are brought in. They don't transmit to a satellite or whatever. Maybe something like that exists, but I don't think it's common.

New World Map Tries to Fix Distorted Views of Earth

I just had the weirdest idea. Like you know how maps are distorted because it's projecting a mostly spherical surface onto a flat surface? Hear me out here... what if we were to do something crazy like use Advanced Video Games Technology to make a "virtual sphere" of sorts that you could manipulate and view on your computer screen?!?!

I don't think the TNG Remaster sold enough for them to move forward with DS9 and Voyager given they'd be even less popular.

If a guy had posted that same twitter post, except he said Women: I don't want to play as a Man, Himself: Deal With it! He would have been torn to pieces, his body parts spread to the edges of the 7 kingdoms and his phallus would have been impaled in the square for all the world to scorn.

Dude. "What if you swap gender/race/orientation/religion/underwear preference? Such and such would get crucified!" is the like, most basic of basic elementary school levels of insight into these type of situations. You need to go a step further and ask yourself WHY the response would be different, if indeed it would be. There's no rulebook that everyone is following with regards to this sort of stuff, so whatever response your Tweet gets, its really just a factor of how many people it reaches and what percentage of the people it rubs the wrong way.

I'll do the legwork for you on this one. Her tweet is essentially harmless girl power crap, and isn't likely to offend any reasonable minded person. It doesn't stand out from any other boilerplate "girls are great!" type shit. But if we swap it to your example, the connotations are a lot different. Suddenly it sounds more like a creepy MRA guy or incel, because no reasonably minded male is going to say "we need more male protagonists" or "thank goodness we have a lot of good male protagonists these days!". But both are common and innocuous if you are talking about female protagonists.

In short, the reasons the responses differ is not because what was said, but because of who tends to say those things.

"73% of women journalists who responded..."

A self-selection survey. It's like Bad Social Science Studies 101...

Not self-selection, since they didn't just slap up an open survey. The term you're looking for is non-response bias, and it's a factor you have to consider in literally any study that gathers responses from people. There's no way to guarantee it isn't there even in the most well-crafted survey.

Your mockery is very childish.

I'll say it again: Remember when Rush Limbaugh had that bit where he'd list off gay people who died from AIDS with a bunch of corny sound effects, and said they deserved it because they all stuck gerbils up their asses? Or the time when he told a Black female caller to "take the bone out of her nose" then call him back? Or the time he insulted the appearance of a 12 year old girl for laughs.

RE: AI Persuasian, This is one reason why a true Artificial General Intelligence is really scary. To them, humans would be easy to manipulate. We're already pretty good at manipulating people even just using human intuition and a lot of personal data.
