I'm a Google Fi member. About a year ago all of our phones (a pixel 5, 7 and 4a 5G) all went from doing their normal thing to having full LTE signal all the time that's totally useless. Speed tests show it as 100kbps down and maybe 50kbps up. All the time.

I wonder what the plantation owners approval ratings were like. We should conduct a study.

If the OOS material is raw API (Active pharmaceutical ingredient) it's regulated by the UN and DEA iirc called Quota. They can 100% control it.

English comp at RIT back when it was trimesters. I'll never understand. Not a technical writing class or shutting that could really benefit a tech heavy student base. English comp freshman year. Miserable.

@Bakkoda@sh.itjust.works avatar

Yeah i desperately needed a technical writing course at that age. I was a hot mess. I most certainly didn't need an English comp class where i was actually required to turn in one of those awful black and white composition pads at the end to pass. I hard noped and took it the next trimester with a bunch of upper class kids who needed it and it was a walk in the park.

It really is my dream for the RNC to be broke by the election

Biden blames ‘congressional inaction’ for Ukrainian withdrawal of key town in call with Zelensky (www.cnn.com)

President Joe Biden, in a call Saturday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, directly tied Ukraine’s withdrawal from the key town of Avdiivka to Congress’ inability to pass further aid for the country’s effort to fend off Russia’s invasion....

They don't care. They just wanna win. It's like a sporting event. Doesn't matter how the team plays all long as they win and your team loses. Being a loser is the worst possible outcome in the US for the current crop of Trump supporters. They had to buy "don't blame us we voted for Trump" flags last election just to let you know they abdicate all responsibility because their team lost.

I'm pretty fuckin liberal and i thought it was more than due. Biden is far more competent than Trump when he's feeling well but you can see the slips and very sudden demeanor changes coupled with what looks like instant onset exhaustion. He just crashes sometimes.

I was however a little annoyed that after almost no Israel discussion that whoever from the Economist looked directly at the camera and said Joe Biden was like the best person to have in office when it comes to Israel. The best? We could think of no one else?

Trump Is Losing It: It is unclear whether Donald Trump has forgotten the precise nature of NATO or whether he ever fully grasped it in the first place. (www.nytimes.com)

What is clear, however, is that Trump — who ostensibly spent four years as president of the United States — has little clue about what NATO is or what NATO does. And when he spoke on the subject at a rally in South Carolina over the weekend, what he said was less a cogent discussion of foreign policy than it was gibberish...

Worked with a batshit crazy old lady in the quality department for about a year. She was stuck there (both job and location) while she cared for her very elderly mother. Before that she had something to do with finance, fashion and F1 racing (like a client liaison or something) but any way. She recalled a tale from late 80s early 90s of being in a very specific bank (Royal back of Scotland?) and watching Mr Trump storm out after being denied a loan. The utter bliss she experienced in telling that story every ting i asked to hear it again... Brought happiness to my heart.

I miss you Marylin you batshit crazy old lady.

I spent way way way too many hours playing D2. Path of Exile is a great choice to fill that gap. Just do homework for a little bit before diving in if you give it a shot. Leveling builds and def use a guide.

Honestly, the title is a click bait title. I read the article and the title could have been more topical with the same amount of words. It's a bullshit title. Oh hey it's the Guardian.

I can request a show, do a load of laundry and have it available. I've decent enough Internet where a movie can be available in as little as 5 minutes if it finds a nice little hevc webrip. I get that it's not instant but a proper setup can have you rocking and rolling in under an hour.

Politics have become identity for a lot of people and for the people who have not chosen this road it's very difficult to engage. You no longer have an abundance of open dialogue anymore. I can't remember the last time i even tried to talk about social issues with people without hearing some bullshit talking point from Facebook/CNN/Fox or whatever that has ended the conversation before it's really begun for them.

Conservatives wanted “mental acuity” to be a top 2024 election issue. It’s blowing up in their face (www.lgbtqnation.com)

In what’s looking like one of the most bizarre choices of the 2024 election season, Republicans decided to make “mental acuity” a key issue in the presidential race – despite their likely candidate’s inability to form coherent thoughts anymore....

RIAA & MPAA layers in the DoJ. Jeff Immelt for economic recovery. James Crown.

The DoJ appointments really bothered me because i was a 2600 subscriber and the MPAA shouldn't even exist let alone have influence on society.

Fox News stops running MyPillow commercials in a payment dispute with election denier Mike Lindell (apnews.com)

Lindell went public by tweeting that that Fox, which had been one of MyPillow’s biggest advertising outlets, had canceled him. He said in his tweet that he didn’t know why but that he suspected that the network was trying to silence him. Fox denied that....

To be fair he's only taking 300 level courses right now. Sadly there's no further classes because Trump U went under.

The best part is the mental, physical and eventually societal cost of the stress from all this bullshit. Health declines, more meds prescribed, more medical bills, less retirement because of medical insurance... Games been rigged since before i was born.
