The year is 2025. Instead of having newscasters, mainstream media channels now permanently display the president's age on the screen, down to the millisecond. Every minute a voice announces that the president is now a minute older than they were a minute ago. Somewhere in the world, bombs are being dropped on a country you've never even heard of. The headline on the screen reads "The president is now three times as old as the world's oldest dog".

@lowqualityfacts Friend I come here for the current facts not future predictions.

If I wanted those there is Mrs. Cleo (or others like her)... 🙃

ETHICAL INQUIRY:

Should public figures (including published journalists) be allowed to request deletion of Wikipedia articles about them if not defamatory (unless a court rules otherwise?)

@shoq @dangillmor @jayrosen_nyu @digiphile @jeff For the most part no... however it can be dangerous for some to have an article (say you are a poll worker/person in power and someone wants you dead...) 🤔

In this case they should probably STFU

@Aviva_Gary@noc.social avatar

@shoq @dangillmor @jayrosen_nyu @digiphile I hope so... In my case I was thinking of those poor poll workers T picked on...

Once he sent his flying monkeys it was on (a Wiki article would have inflamed that and sadly I think some would have argued they were public figures).

You are correct though... there needs to be a rule(s) as to who and what qualifies as a public figure 🤔

@georgetakei I mean it is a scam but differently.

As the comments have already pointed out, college has drifted from its role of education/ people and society enhancement to job production.

Add the amount of debt people go into for this "privilege" and I can see where she thinks college is a store and she got her paper so let's do this please.

The system itself is the scam. Education never is.

@StillIRise1963 Yes... but I raise you one... what if we did real security and no TSA stuff

Everything now is performative to make some people feel better but it doesn't actually work...

    The fact that people cower in the face of this orange, idiot freak pisses me off more than I can explain.

    @Aviva_Gary@noc.social avatar

    @StillIRise1963 What I don't get is if they didn't cower... he'd have no power but because they cower his power grows...

    Like they can stop this at anytime, it's a choice they don't.

    @bookstodon I'm looking for book recommendations for an 11yo who reads at a much more advanced level. He likes sci-fi. He has read the Hitchhiker's Guide series and loved them. I think he would enjoy some more 'hard' sci-fi as well. He needs something challenging but without subject matter that is too mature. Thanks for any help!
