Cops can't be trusted to investigate hate crimes, because they more than likely support the criminal

Reich-wingers are completely impervious to fact-based arguments

Not as such, I'd say. Seems more like a case of bad definitions for what counts as "green"

a big chunk of the EQIP funding goes to practices that don’t have a tangible climate impact, like installing sprinkler systems and installing fences to contain animals.

There is also funding for certain provisional practices, which, according to the USDA itself, increase greenhouse gas emissions. One of them is the construction of animal waste storage facilities that can contaminate waterways. Between 2017 and 2022, more than $252m went toward building such storage areas. The USDA specifies that in order to qualify for IRA funding, the waste storage facility needs to implement a compost-bedded pack structure, that, according to the agency, is expected to reduce methane emissions.

“The USDA is essentially encouraging more livestock production, making it cheaper by subsidizing activities on these farms,” said Silvia Secchi, who researches agriculture and water sustainability at Iowa University and was not involved in the report. “We’re going to see the expansion of dairy operations, like in Iowa. What that means is all the climate benefits are going to be countered by the expansion of these facilities. So I wouldn’t call this ‘climate smart’.”

That dude looks like his personality is USA

Maybe somebody convinced them that mods are woke?

Better invade another neighbor to make sure everybody sees that the US is the biggest threat in Europe

If Russians could just stop genociding their neighbors for a few decades we wouldn't even need NATO

Reddit tarjoaa mahdollisuutta ostaa niiden osakkeita, mut vain Yhdysvalloissa asuville (i.imgur.com) Finnish

Sain kuvanmukaisen sähköpostin. Ilmeisesti olen sit sen verran kantis et Reddit tarjoaa mahdollisuutta osallistua niiden osakkeiden ostamiseen, kun ne on listautumassa pörssiin. Mut se on rajattu vain Yhdysvalloissa asuville, joten en kelpaa....

Täytyypä käydä shorttaamassa jahka toi pamahtaa pörssiin

Why were they backing her to begin with?

Plausible deniability?

hydroptic ,

I forgot her name, was too embarrassed to ask her to remind me (because it had been like four months), so I spent the next ~5 months of my life with a psychoromantic connection to that fucking emoticon.

That's hilarious. What a time to be alive

The heck is that?

Ahhh right, I didn't recognize it from a photo but I've read of it.

It's annoying that so many sources are calling VERA-NG a "radar" when it's specifically not a radar: it's a fully passive system, it only receives and doesn't emit. Hell, even the Wiki article is titled VERA passive sensor

hydroptic ,

As I said in another comment, I didn't recognize it from photos but I've read of the VERA system. It's actually specifically not a radar: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VERA_passive_sensor

hydroptic ,

Well, my days of not taking you seriously are certainly coming to a middle

hydroptic , (edited )

Oh interesting, although that does make complete sense. I'm an old sigs pig so I'm not too clued in on this stuff honestly

hydroptic ,

Being educated and privileged doesn't mean someone's smart

hydroptic , (edited )

The blog post you linked to seems to conflate intelligence with IQ and then use that to draw the conclusion that the whole concept of intelligence is a myth and ableist. That idea seems like, well, nonsense. I really don't see how it's ableist to acknowledge that everybody's cognitive skills aren't exactly the same

And mathematicians divide by multiplying!

In formal definitions of arithmetics, division can be defined via multiplication: as a simplified example with real numbers, because a ÷ 2 is the same as a × 0.5, this means that if your axioms support multiplication you'll get division out of them for free (and this'll work for integers too, the definition is just a bit more involved.)

Mathematicians also subtract by adding, with the same logic as with division.

hydroptic , (edited )

Defining a/b as a * (1/b) makes sense if you’re learning arithmetic

The example was just to illustrate the idea not to define division exactly like that

hydroptic , (edited )

what even is subtraction?

It's just addition wearing a trench coat, fake beard and glasses

hydroptic , (edited )

Yeah I should maybe just have written

hydroptic OP ,

Hah, go for it! It looks like it has its beak open a bit, kind of like this one:

hydroptic OP ,

I'm sure it's fine ❤️ we tend to be overly critical of our own work. Or you could try drawing it with the beak closed too?

hydroptic OP ,

Both the duck and the rabbit look a bit miserable

hydroptic OP , (edited )

The current version is great, already captures the sort of worried look. One where the beak looks like the photo might actually also turn out pretty cool. I dunno, could maybe add some teeth to make the gap less weird? Yes I know ducks don't have teeth but this is cartoon biology 😁

hydroptic OP , (edited )

Ha that's bang-on. I made a rotated version and it works really well

hydroptic OP ,

Quack! It turned out great

hydroptic ,

Would be a great opportunity for Russia to funnel the money to him via some stooge or another. Trump's so on sale, even compared to how on sale he normally is

The extreme right won’t stop trying to exert government control over our most sacred personal decisions

It's not the extreme right, this is mainstream for conservatives. The extreme right is the one calling for eg. the extermination of gender / sexual minorities or non-whites (and the extremists aren't nearly as rare as people generally like to think)

hydroptic ,

Are you seriously asking for a statistic for whether being anti-abortion is a mainstream conservative view?

hydroptic ,

Just… let people have whatever hair they want…

"Absolutely not."

– Conservatives, probably

hydroptic ,

The most fucked up part about this is that many countries – the US included – cut funding for UNRWA after this bullshit, and apparently even the UNRWA itself just took the accusations at face value and fired some of the accused

hydroptic OP ,

A cop tried to defend itself against an acorn

And lost

hydroptic OP ,

Oh I didn't make it, no idea who did honestly

hydroptic OP ,

Made of mimetic polyacorn

hydroptic ,

I'm sure they'll make sideloading a miserable enough experience for all involved (but not miserable enough to make it obvious that it's in bad faith and incur the wrath of the EU) that both users and devs will just opt not to do it

hydroptic ,

I think they mean the links to other articles

One of the reasons many people pick one of the best iPhones over their Android counterparts is due to security.

Which, well, I dunno how that's so bad. It's just linking to other articles on the same site 🤷
