Redline is a fantastic movie, one of my favorites. It used to be on YouTube for free (uploaded from the studio's official channel, so it was a legit release), but it looks like they may have pulled it some time ago.

If you were ever a fan of the F-ZERO games or enjoyed the vibe of Initial D, you need to watch this movie.

I love Charismatic Voice! Her channel has introduced me to a lot of really awesome music that I'd never heard of before, and has gotten me to really study some other songs I've already known and discover new things to love about them. I've been watching her for a few years now, and it's been really fun watching her evolve into a true metalhead.

I feel you've misinterpreted the comment you've replied to.

The agreement isn't that you watch the ad, but that you allow the ad to play on your device. That's it. Whether or not you see it or hear it doesn't matter; the "cost" for this type of content is a few moment of your device's time, not your attention.

Lemmy is still very much in its infancy. It's not even reached version 1.0 yet. While we've all been on here for a while now, its future is still very much uncertain and hasn't seen anywhere near the adoption that Mastodon and other microblog Fedi platforms have.

Not OP, but just chiming in to say that I think most people are tired of hearing this. The "just make a new community" thing is repeated often in threads like this, and I feel like it's a bit tone-deaf to people's true complaints, which is that they just want an easy place to chat that doesn't require being an unpaid janitor. Yes, it's easy to create a community on Lemmy. But not everybody wants to run a community. There's a lot of responsibility involved beyond just registering the page on your instance of choice, and that's a daunting task for most people who just want a place to talk about their interests without having to be responsible for keeping the peace on top of it.

Have you checked out any of the other Fediverse microblog platforms, like Misskey, Sharkey, etc? I don't really like the layout of Mastodon, but Sharkey's got a much nicer layout (with multiple customization options), and I've really been enjoying it.

Isn't attacking an embassy effectively the same thing as attacking directly on that country's soil?

That's a pretty low bar to clear at this point.

Japanese law is very business-focused. For instance, their defamation laws give little regard to whether or not a claim is true; if you make public statements that hurt a business's reputation, you're likely to be punished for it. People often seem to not realize that Japan is a very conservative nation.

In his most recent announcement, he said he's bringing 2 new instance mods. But I couldn't find the actual announcement post for the new team members. Unfortunately, these days Ernest often disappears for days or weeks at a time, so there's really no telling when we'll see the impacts of this.

What happened with Rammstein and Die Antwoord?

I use it because it comes free with a service I already pay for.

Wasn't this an online-only game that was already being shut down? What good is a license if there's no way to play?

Chozo ,
Chozo avatar

Wouldn't that require modifying the game in some way to function? At that point, it's already an EULA-violating action which a publisher would normally revoke a license over, anyway. So why not just use pirated/cracked copies if the community's going to go the route of hosting their own network, anyway?

I'm not familiar with The Crew or its community, so I'm just not understanding what practical difference this makes for anybody still trying to play the game at this post-shutdown time.

Isn't most of that recyclable? Or at the very least, I imagine the cardstock that the holder is made from is relatively biodegradable. At least it's not a ton of plastic.

Plain clothes officers in an unmarked car with guns drawn on him for a seatbelt violation. How is somebody supposed to differentiate them from any other gang calling themselves "police"?

He shot in self defense. Period.

Who do you think is paying random Lemmy users to complain about headlines on news articles? Seriously, who do you imagine is behind such a ridiculous conspiracy? Where is the value in such activity?

Also, upvotes are public. We can see who upvoted him, and it wasn't bots.

Chozo ,
Chozo avatar

How can you possibly know if an account is or is not a bot in this age of LLMs?

You tell us, you're the one saying the other guy was "clearly upvoted by bots", you show us how you came to that conclusion, chief.

Chozo ,
Chozo avatar

"Bots exist" isn't an answer to "prove that post was upvoted by bots".

Quit being obnoxious, my guy.

Chozo ,
Chozo avatar

Feel free to come up with your own thesis for the behaviour then.

People upvoted him because they agree with him. Not that hard to figure out.

Why do you think a bunch of discussion has formed around a falsehood where all the parties of that discussion seem to agree and yet none have discussed the subject matter at all.

Because the headline is trash, hence the conversation at hand.

Supreme Court Expands Access To Roofies ( www.theonion.com )

WASHINGTON—In a historic ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court declared Tuesday that Americans have the right to roofies. “A sexual predator’s right to Rohypnol is an issue of personal liberty that must not be infringed upon,” said Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who grew visibly emotional during oral arguments, asserting through...

I was wondering why it felt like the gas wasn't working for me. Damn, wish I knew this one earlier.

Not necessarily a writing trope, but a casting trope in fantasy TV/film that always annoyed me: British accent = fantasy accent. It's not so bad these days, but a lot of 2000s-era fantasy would just have all the actors speak in awfully fake British accents.

You could do that, but would there be any advantage over springs? That seems like a very expensive, over-engineered solution.

If you're curious how this happened, it's because Automoton patrols are bugged. The way they're supposed to work is the way that the Terminid patrols work, where they spawn in random locations and travel in a random direction across the map until they despawn.

But the bots are broken, and instead their patrols always go to the center of the map, instead of all the way across. When they get there, they just stop, and lock down at that spot. If you've been in the mission for a while and have been doing things that spawn a lot of patrols, you can find a ton of them. Here's a group I caught on Maia last night.

There was a Hulk patrol just off to my right and a turret cannon just beyond it, and I didn't want to risk pulling aggro from anything with my teammates spread out so far, so I had to run aaallllllllll the way around the left and over to get to the cock rock, crawling half the way. Honestly kind of a fun experience sneaking around a few dozen bots and using craters for cover!

We ended up coming back after doing the objectives and dropped a 500kg on 'em, buddy said he got something like 23 kills from it. I wanna try to organize another bot group-up like this at some point and see just how many kills you can get with a single stratagem before it crashes the game.

Well have you tried offering him a turn? You've been hogging the controller, let him try.

It's to prevent unwanted pregnancies. Always bag up your hydrants, boys!

Chozo ,

I believe there's some logic in alternating patterns being more attention-grabbing to our brains, which is why you usually see stripes on anything you need to be cautious around.

The pole isn't for locating the hydrant, per se, as much as it is for avoiding the hydrant. It's so you don't drive into it if it's covered in snow.

The mobile web is so bad these days, and it's as if every single page is like this now. It almost feels like the advertisers are just memeing on us now. They could sneak an "& Knuckles" on the page somewhere and I probably wouldn't notice.

Roku is really just trying to sabotage their reputation at this point, it seems.

I pride myself of having the least deaths

This, right here. Getting all the kills doesn't matter if you're eating up all the reinforcements and constantly pulling unnecessary aggro across the map in the process. I find that "top fragger" players are insufferable in this game.

After DEI Cuts, This Sixth-Gen Austinite Is Losing Access to UT ( www.austinchronicle.com )

Nyeka Arnold is a sixth generation Austinite. Before they came to Austin, her family was enslaved just a few miles east of the city, in the cotton farming town of Webberville. It was her great-great-great grandfather, Rev. John Henry Winn, who founded St. John Freedom Colony in Austin in the early 1870s....

I literally just asked a question.

You didn't just ask a question, you also injected your own narrative about "other more-qualified students" being denied positions, which is a gross misrepresentation of what DEI is. You don't get to say you're "just asking questions" when your questions come with baked-in narratives, Tucker.

the overwhelming emotional arguments and lack of any actual facts

"overwhelming emotional arguments"? One guy called you a racist, and wasn't even arguing with you. If that was overwhelmingly emotional for you, maybe you're not really ready to have your question answered.

Chozo ,
Chozo avatar

Also still no one has even attempted to answer the question. Why is that?

Because we recognize a bad-faith argument for what it is and don't want to humor it.

Alternatively, if you are not asking in bad faith and are actually just doing a horrifically poor job of posing your question neutrally, then you seem to lack a critical understanding of the subject at hand that needs to be dealt with before your question could even be addressed. Nobody is obligated to lay down that foundation for you, especially on a subject that has been discussed to death already.

The problem comes from not knowing what the optimal algorithm is for the particular situation beforehand, though. You can only formulate based on factors you already know. That's why AI can train itself and develop its own, new algorithms, and can determine those unknown factors that may have gone unnoticed by humans.

It's mostly red if you've been fighting bots, mostly green for bugs.

Interesting! After bug missions I normally look like I just lost in Family Double Dare.

I wonder if maybe it's supposed to be partially your blood in some scenarios, then.

Feels a bit weird pinging the president in Lemmy comments, but come at me, Secret Service.
