I'm a bit confused as to what a "gaming chair" is supposed to be and how it differs from any other chair designed for sitting at a computer. The ones I've seen have bright colors and look like very cheap bucket seats out of a race car, which seems worse than a normal cheap computer chair.

What feature or design change would a very good gaming chair have over a very good chair designed for anyone working long hours at a computer?

This law suit is a joke. Comcast doesn't want the 'of-color' owned channels being pushed as part of their standard package because they are crap. Race has nothing to do with it.

Out of the 9 channels available through the network in question, only two had enough viewership to even register in the Nielsen ratings (which were abysmally low). Comcast isn't even giving them the time of day because they don't make money. End of story.

The fact that MLK's daughter is getting involved in this is disrespectful to him. This is not what he fought for and she is misusing his accomplishments for some time in the spotlight.

From what I gather, the specific details of this case aren't really what she takes issue with, but rather the means by which Comcast is defending themselves. She seems worried about setting a precedent which she feels would put anyone filing a discrimination suit unnecessarily at a disadvantage.

First episode of The Mandalorian was good, IMO. Definitely feels like a western.
Good deal. I'll put that on my watch list.
I've been enjoying Watchmen.

I watched the first episode of Watchmen, it was great, but I decided to wait until it finishes before watching the rest, since it's apparently just going to be a one season deal.

Honestly both sides seem to make solid arguments here with regard to the "but-for" standard. Comcast probably has the better argument, but we'll see what happens.

Keep in mind that article is written by the CEO and Founder of a company that sells AI based solutions, and he cites a study by another company selling AI based solutions (without providing a link to it...).

The "AI creates more jobs than it replaces!" thing is mostly bullshit. That might be true in some specific cases. Not all AI is created equal. Some are more of an augmentation to productivity than a replacement. In those cases, it's quite possible the AI could create more jobs than it eliminates. But even then, those jobs are unlikely to be available to the same workers who were replaced.

If an AI eliminates hundreds of jobs at a company, it's going to save them a lot of money, but by what mechanic would it create hundreds more jobs? It's not like you need hundreds of people to maintain the AI.

It's a technical issue, not a political one. Rape and serial murder are when it's easiest to gather and identify DNA belonging to a suspect. As much as the police might like to run DNA checks for traffic violations, it's not feasible. What kind of crimes do you imagine them abusing DNA evidence for? I really see this as, "Fuck the cops, I'm not turning in my rapist family member."

They'll expand their DNA usage if they have more and cheaper access to the process, which because of the march of technology is inevitable. And people take DNA as some kind of smoking gun. DNA can be in the "wrong place at the wrong time" as much as an individual with that DNA can, with the exception of obvious shit like rape where the DNA is found in a place where there's really only one way it could get there.

Technical issues are the least compelling reason to not worry about this sort of shit, because a lot of the privacy concerns we have today were science fiction a few decades ago with people probably saying similar things.

"It's not feasible to have license plate readers and cameras all over the place." was no doubt a very common refrain in 1989.

Never been a vaper (or tobacco smoker) myself, but I have to imagine a lot of the anti-vaping hysteria is being funded by Big Cancer.

Yet. You may have noticed the somewhat nationalist/racist turn the US has taken of late. This kind of thing creates a turnkey authoritarian state.

You're right. In fact, history shows us that any power the state gets, they continue from use to abuse until stopped by backlash whether it is political, legal, etc.

Has anyone here done this? I can't think of why anyone would. I mean, I'm not planning going on a crime spree, but I'm certainly not going to make it easy for anyone to obtain such personal information.

If it was just me being put at risk, I might do it if I was curious enough about my geneology. But the thing is they use DNA to find relatives of people who may have committed crimes. I don't want to be some unwitting snitch that gets some relative busted for some crime.

I understand what he's trying to say, that the stakes are completely different, but that just means such a person needs to be more careful to follow the rules, not less careful.

Why are you guys responding to a 2 week old obvious alt account that only posts to defend Trump when he sees someone being mean to his God Emperor and doesn't appear to actually be interested in games?

When you label every person who you don't agree with a "nazi" then it becomes irrational and irrelevant.

Did you actually read the article? It's not like it was just some questionably racist stuff, it was straight up KKK roleplaying.

Particularly when you say everyone else is allowed to be proud of their race/ethnicity but the moment a white person says it well then they must be worse than Hitler, right? That's sort of liberal hypocrisy is completely infantile. I listen to James Brown 'Say it loud I'm black and I'm proud' and it's a bad jam I dig it. It doesn't make me think he's some sort of black supremacist.

In a surprise to no one, Cutter's meager intellect isn't able to summon up anything more original than "Why can't we have White Pride?!?!"

I've always wondered why something as fundamental as human nutrition is so poorly understood. There doesn't seem to ever be a definitive answer on what the healthiest way to eat is, besides the obvious things like don't eat plutonium, watch your calories, and get the appropriate ratio of fat, protein and carbs.
