Basically all mainstream ones since the 2000s. Nowadays I skip trailers entirely to not spoil the movies for me.

Strobelt ,

I used a browser extension exactly for this when I still used Twitter. Best thing ever. Then manbaby bought Twitter and it's gone to shit.

Strobelt ,

This idea seems to be getting some steam. I'm all aboard it!

Israeli army broadcasts intimidating sounds to lure, kill, and forcibly displace civilians in the Nuseirat camp ( euromedmonitor.org )

Testimonies from camp residents, which were provided to the Euro-Med Monitor team, confirm that the sound of women screaming and babies crying was heard late at night on both Sunday and Monday. When some of the residents went out to investigate and tried to help, they were shot at by Israeli quadcopter drones. The sounds they...

Strobelt ,

No guys. You don't understand. These sounds are only for Hamas to hear, not for the civilians. The drones weren't meant to kill civilians, but if they heard the sounds specifically made for Hamas of course they are terrorists, right? /s

Strobelt ,

Best we can do is have your doctor cripplingly addicted to vicodin

Strobelt ,

They could spinoff to rare metals like gold or silver, or even gemstones like sapphire or ruby. 👀

I'M A BLOODY SCOTTISH CYCLOPS!

Strobelt ,

If it is not visibly broken, you could just have clogged it with the cleaning agent. This did happen to me some times and whar helped was rubbing a damp cloth in it to dissolve the soap. Hope it helps!

Strobelt ,

But will it give me a card with my opponent in scantily clad clothing if I win?

Court Bans Use of 'AI-Enhanced' Video Evidence Because That's Not How AI Works ( gizmodo.com )

A judge in Washington state has blocked video evidence that’s been “AI-enhanced” from being submitted in a triple murder trial. And that’s a good thing, given the fact that too many people seem to think applying an AI filter can give them access to secret visual data.

Strobelt ,

Aren't we already in a kind of dark age?

People denying science, people scared of diseases and vaccination, people using anything AI or blockchain as if it were magic, people defending power-hungry, all-promising dictators, people divided over and calling the other side barbaric. And of course, wars based on religion.

Seems to me we're already in the dark.

Gameplay mechanics were also a lot better with more replayability. ( lemmy.world )

Ignoring the lack of updates if the game is buggy, games back then were also more focused on quality and make gamers replay the game with unlockable features based on skills, not money. I can't count the number of times I played Metal Gear Solid games over and over to unlock new features playing the hardest difficulty and with...

Strobelt ,

Even the concept of taking your game to a friend to play it is basically impossible today

Strobelt , (edited )

I'll take the obvious bait here.
The issue is that paying for a full game should give you a full game. For now the MTXs are like you said, for small items and not game changing. For now.

If the gaming community accepts this, who knows what the next step will be? Maybe they'll be kept small, but maybe they won't.

Remember this is the the same industry selling horse armor, selling over 2k dollars of dlc in the Sims 4, shipping unfinished games after millionaire pre-orders, and selling dlc that fix day one problems that shouldn't even be there. And they do this because the community never questioned when they were small enough problems.

Strobelt ,

It's not about being worthy or not. It's about pushing a new status quo of being acceptable to have MTXs on a 70 USD game.

Strobelt ,

I always remember cartman about pre-orders. All you get is a big dick on your mouth

Strobelt ,

From my very small knowledge, yes, beer was consumed at room temperature. In Germany it still is, for example. Also, beer had less alcohol and was much more like bread in that it was nutritious and filling than what we have now.

Strobelt ,

Your comment made me really nostalgic for the days of setting up pan parties, configuring hamachi servers, etc.
Good old days

Strobelt ,

In the middle of the picture and I couldn't find it lol

I'm a US citizen, people in other countries, what do you think when you read stories like these about the US health care system? ( www.vox.com )

I'd like to know other non-US citizen's opinions on your health care system are when you read a story like this. I know there are worse places in the world to receive health care, and better. What runs through your heads when you have a medical emergency?...

Strobelt ,

Actually most third world countries don't have guns as rights. And their laws on abortion vary wildly.

So the US would be worse than third world.

Strobelt ,

Well. They changed from idiotic to completely deranged. So no

Strobelt ,

Exactly! Much easier just making something as "evil" than actually solving the issues around.

Children shouldn't be using their cells that much, but this is not solved by restricting access to it. It is solved by making communities and spaces child-safe and interesting for them.

Strobelt , (edited )

Wait. D4 is already winding down? Didn't it launch last year?

Strobelt ,

Wow! Lemmy is now blurring passwords? It only shows asterisks to me!

Strobelt ,

I prefer to keep my /S always behind me

Strobelt ,

Well, the gith are aliens after all, aren't them? Also as infernal are kind of alien/extraplanar you could say Wil and Karlach are at least half-alien

Study finds that Chat GPT will cheat when given the opportunity and lie to cover it up later. ( lemmy.world )

We demonstrate a situation in which Large Language Models, trained to be helpful, harmless, and honest, can display misaligned behavior and strategically deceive their users about this behavior without being instructed to do so. Concretely, we deploy GPT-4 as an agent in a realistic, simulated environment, where it assumes the...

Strobelt ,

This. So much this. Chat gpt is just a bullshitting machine of finding what’s the most probable next sentence. It is not by far as intelligent as the dumbest human. It is just excellent in pretending it is. And just because it was trained to do so.

Strobelt ,

They aren’t getting along! They aren’t getting along!

Strobelt ,

That’s an issue with the whole tech industry. They do something wrong, say it was AI/ML/the algorithm and get off with just a slap on the wrist.

We should all remember that every single tech we have was built by someone. And this someone and their employer should be held accountable for all this tech does.

Strobelt ,

Basically it’s just war with additional taxes and marketing needes

Strobelt ,

What if we gave everyone their own killer robot and then everyone could just fight each other for what they wanted?

Strobelt ,

And if you happen to use this interest and money to fund your company while you search for the right charities to support it’s OK. It’s all for charity sake after all!

Strobelt ,

Laughing hard at this and singing it in my head lololol

Popular porn sites now display unproven health warnings thanks to Texas law ( www.theverge.com )

Popular porn sites now display unproven health warnings thanks to Texas law::Popular online adult film sites in Texas are posting health warnings about watching porn, despite the fact a law requiring them to do so was blocked in August.

Strobelt ,

Maybe you should not point it towards your eyes

Strobelt ,

All this on news sites and when you refuse everything you get into a paywall

Strobelt ,

Everything by sokpop is amazing and really cheap

Strobelt ,

Mauve for this you’ll need to have an account? This would already help nasa market products towards you and this is a good value they can get without you paying anything.

Strobelt ,

You can have a separate partition for your files so that you change only your OS. Even with windows. This way you’ll always keep your files and just need to customize your distro and reinstall your apps when you change between distros

Strobelt ,

I had this same issue and what helped was go for a dual boot with windows and slowly learn how to customize things so that I can be as productive as before.

Also, steam electron helped a lot with this transition, as I didn’t have excuses to not change partitions between gaming and working/studying

Strobelt ,

Thanks for the information! Hope people see that uBO is still standing firmly against this YouTube bullshit

Strobelt ,

Do you have sources where I can read more about this line of thought?
