Out of the Blue

Mr Trololo AI Upscale: Eduard Khil as never seen before [1080p] (thanks Boing Boing). True confession. Trololo is my ringtone. I don't get a lot of calls in public, but the looks I get when I do are priceless. The clip is actually interesting, as I had zero knowledge of the song's backstory. ♪♫ Trololo… ♪♫

Melodic Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

I gotta admit: I'm hoping Blue just didn't look closely at the "Why Smart People Believe Stupid Things" article. It's deeply disturbing.

It does a fair job disguising its true intention, and I'm sure plenty of people just skimming the first few paragraphs may not realize it.
I did not vet that article properly... I'm not sure what happened, but I did not intend to post something like that, particularly under "science." I removed the link. I appreciate the benefit of the doubt.
It's a sneaky article. The first few paragraphs at the beginning and end are pretty reasonable. In the middle it gets pretty extreme. Given you post 100 articles per day, I'm sure you don't have time to read them all end to end. Maybe ChatGPT can help?

We went hiking yesterday. My wife says, "I could never go hiking anywhere that had bears" out of the blue. We live on an island and the nearest bear is 3000 miles away. The largest fauna on the island are wild pigs. Oddly, a few minutes later we ran into a little 20 pounder rooting around in the leaves under the guava trees. I suspect it was someone's pet that had escaped (or was just on an adventure). First it was a light brown, and the wild pigs here are black. Second, it was completely undisturbed by people talking and walking by, whereas my other chance encounters with wild pigs have them bolting into the woods as soon as they hear you. Third it's tail was continuously wagging, a behavior I've never seen in a wild pig before.

For a long time my cell phone ringtone (and alarm clock by extension) was just the start to Icky Thump.

Now I've got it swapped out for just a classic beeping cell phone ringtone, like an old old Nokia or something.
Very beepy.

That is, pretty obviously, not his main point. He just wraps his main point in that faux rationality to sneak it passed people.

Re: "Why Smart People Believe Stupid Things. "

What the ... did I just read? This article is like one big strawman argument about "woke" views.

How about this "unbiased" gem: "The popular woke myth that sex is a spectrum is...".
Or: ""Labyrinthine sophistry like “sex is a spectrum” prevails among cognitively sophisticated cultural elites, including those who should know better such as biologists, but it’s rarer among the common people, who lack the capacity for mental gymnastics required to justify such elaborate delusions.""

Gurwinder is the embodiment of the dunning kruger effect. He thinks he is an expert, when in fact, he is not smart enough to know what he does not know. The fact that his own article is a better example to fit his thesis than his own examples just goes to show the extent of their own hypocrisy. This fool even starts arguing against giving people more knowledge and reasoning.

Blue, you may want to review what you post or are you trying to enflame the forums with more debating about trans rights? This article and author is just a bunch of ignorant garbage masquerading as intellectualism. But if this is your cup or tea and the types of views you want to spread on your site, well, it IS your site, so...

It's worst than 400k leaked waste, they hid it for 4 months because they were trying to get their license renewed to run the plant till 2050.
Not sure what happened, had it all prepped and thought I sent it to Blue, last week. I spend most of my time, half awake or half asleep. Sleeping

Re: 400,000 gallons of radioactive water leaked from a nuclear plant in Minnesota.

“Now that we have all the information about where the leak occurred, how much was released into groundwater, and that contaminated groundwater had moved beyond the original location, we are sharing this information”

WTF, they have known about it since Nov 2022, and are only now making it public? The info they had should have been public immediately. What were they waiting for? To see if they could cover it up? jfc
