3 scientists win Nobel in chemistry for quantum dots research used in electronics, medical imaging ( apnews.com )

Three scientists in the United States have won the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their work on quantum dots. Those are particles just a few nanometers in diameter that can release very bright colored light and are used in electronics and medical imaging.

PenguinJuice ,

They should just abstain from controversial shit and just make good movies.

I don't remember any of their prior movies needing to push agendas for anything in particular.

PenguinJuice ,

So what you're saying is good content is good because it appeals to the audience and we are now purposefully not appealing to the vast, overwhelming majority of human beings which is why Disney and other companies that chase that temporary trend are failing in droves.

Got it.

So only one specific agenda is correct. All the rest must be silenced.

PenguinJuice ,

Theres been inclusion and representation in movies and TV since the 90s. I'm confused. What are you referring to specifically?

People aren't watching what they put out. Their sustainment is heavily reliant on their parks. They destroyed Marvel and Star Wars chasing something other than what the respective core demographic wanted. This is clearly majorly impacting them or else:

It's not looking good for the "narrative", I'll tell you that.

PenguinJuice ,

Gay people have been in film and television since the 90s, what point are you trying to make?

PenguinJuice ,

What was the agenda?

PenguinJuice ,

I never understood this. I sleep with wet socks on and the fan. Helps keep me cool at night.

PenguinJuice ,

If it's with real money it's gambling. I'm perfectly okay with it.

PenguinJuice OP ,

Media companies should just focus on making high quality entertainment instead of preaching politics. I think it's obvious the damage it's done to their brand by not adhering to that principle.

PenguinJuice OP ,

Disney knew what they were doing and that it went too far or they wouldn't have made this statement. The company never cared about LGBTQ, diversity or feminism, they were just pandering and it backfired.

PenguinJuice OP ,

If I were to guess, people have a problem with sexuality and what they consider advanced sexual topics, on the nose diversity, and feminism at the cost of incompetent or subservient male characters being in their family films.

I think people prefer content such as Toy Story, Bugs Life, Monsters Inc, Finding Nemo, etc. These were good films that had a universal, moral message without having to do with politics or controversies.

PenguinJuice OP ,

It's okay to be prudish when it comes to families and children. They don't need to grow up. If you want to make movies that are not overly prudish and targeted at children you are more than welcome to. No one is stopping you.

PenguinJuice ,

The tech workers I know love it and are convincing others to join them. Seems anecdotal at best.

PenguinJuice ,

It's sad but I think most people saw this coming after his public behavior at his concerts.

PenguinJuice ,

It should be illegal to interfere with a user experience outside of delivering it to them.

Hot take: Users without a profile pick are mildlyinfuriating ( upload.wikimedia.org )

For real. I can never understand why some of ye don’t have a cool pfp. You could even get some cool background art on your profile as well. Really jazz it up, ya know. But I swear 90% instead opt for the default lemmy logo. How uncreative and boring. I can’t even tell most of you people apart.

PenguinJuice ,

I'm doing it on purpose. It finally paid off. I've been targeting you this whole time.

PenguinJuice ,

Yeah. Underwhelmed is a bit of an understatement.

PenguinJuice ,

High waisted jeans are some of the most hideously unflattering clothing I've ever fucking seen. It's an instant cringe whenever I see some poor soul wearing them. I get everyone wants to follow fashion, but some fashion is just straight up ugly whether it's in or out.

PenguinJuice ,

Fashion is manipulating but some shit is just plain ugggff

PenguinJuice ,

This terrifies me. If I am forced to return to the office to do the same thing I do very, very well at home, my entire life will significantly change for the worse. It's not fair that a few deuschbags cab ruin someone else's life so easily and carelessly.

PenguinJuice ,

I think there's a lot of people who desire free speech outside of MAGA people.

But I even believe they should have free speech too. Free speech is the most important element of our society imo.

PenguinJuice ,

The government doesn't like people questioning the narrative and I think a lot of these moves by social media platforms are an attempted method to train people to behave that way.

PenguinJuice ,

I think educating people to identify and ignore the insane opinions should be the end goal

PenguinJuice ,

This is the content I come here for. Thank you

PenguinJuice ,

I'm a simple man, I see actual accomplishments of mankind being mentioned and I upvote.

Line go up is for smooth brained animals.

Rocket go up is for true gentlemen.

PenguinJuice ,

Can't even remember the last time I've played an EA game. Their games are just not great. Same with Ubisoft. I think studios just get too big to make anything decent after a certain point.

PenguinJuice ,

Ubisoft makes a beautiful turd as well. I miss interesting, innovative games.

PenguinJuice ,

Does anyone else fear the economic impact that student loans are going to have once they are resumed? I am really not looking forward to another recession.

PenguinJuice ,

That's what I'm saying. We've been barely skirting by but it's been doable. Once student loans kick in, that's the spark going from embers to an inferno.

PenguinJuice ,

Slow organic growth is far better than explosives, unsustainable growth. We continue to provide content and actual authentic conversation and they will come.

PenguinJuice ,

I actually forgot about reddit until this post

PenguinJuice ,

I can't play games with graphics like this, but I'm really happy for them!!! Great work!

PenguinJuice ,

No clue what this is supposed to be or if it's supposed to be funny.

PenguinJuice ,

You sound hinged and very sound of mind.

PenguinJuice ,

Thank you for your actual response. Some people are too immature to subjectively help others understand.

Tesla’s secret team to suppress thousands of driving range complaints ( www.reuters.com )

About a decade ago, Tesla rigged the dashboard readouts in its electric cars to provide “rosy” projections of how far owners can drive before needing to recharge, a source told Reuters. The automaker last year became so inundated with driving-range complaints that it created a special team to cancel owners’ service...

PenguinJuice ,

Still the same sentence either way though

PenguinJuice ,

Literally, no. Subject wise, yes.

Twitter ain't shit - people obsessing.
Twitter is shit and so people are obsessing.

Same thing. If it's shit, ignore it and move on. Make your own Twitter. You never owned it, you have no right to claim it ever was or ever will be anything. You're a dude looking from the outside in, whining.

PenguinJuice ,

No.

If you don't care about something you don't post about it.

PenguinJuice ,

I'm pretty sure no one cares, bud. Keep it going though
