The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is probing Reddit’s plan to let artificial intelligence (AI) firms utilize user-generated content to train their software, according to the social media company’s Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing Friday. ...

Why Florida might sue Maine over abortion, transgender health care shield law. What to know ( www.floridatoday.com )

Florida's attorney general is one among many from red states across the country threatening Maine with legal action as the New England state considers a shield law that would protect those seeking abortions and health care from criminal repercussions in Florida....

States' Rights is a euphemism for the reactionary cause du jour. You can call them out for a contradiction, but at best they will just ignore you because they know and we know they're not talking about or concerned with the rights of states vs. federal mandate. Then there's always the threat that they will drop the euphemism and say that they want to punish promiscuous women and trans deviants. Trump has largely proven that the right doesn't have to watch its mouth near as much as they used to think. Rather than abandon their political identity, the majority of the "moderate" right will go along with the new framing. The only ones who lose out in this shift in rhetoric are women and trans people, who are now directly and publicly targeted not just by the reactionary fringes but by the right as a whole.

If you're wondering, yes, I absolutely lifted most of this from the Alt-Right Playbook, "The Death of a Euphemism"

oh no, why did they turn him into Jared Leto Joker

DrugsMcChrist ,

oh we're plenty angry, it's more that the corporate media has made a concerted effort to remind us that collective action results in a high risk of skull crushing by our militarized police

Taylor Swift is related to famed poet Emily Dickinson ( www.infoterkiniviral.com )

It appears that Taylor Swift's forthcoming album, "The Tortured Poets Department," has an interesting connection to her distant relative, the famed poet Emily Dickinson. Ancestry, a genealogy company, has revealed that Swift and Dickinson are 6th cousins, three times removed....

GOP posts nearly $92 million bond in E. Jean Carroll defamation case

Because after Super Tuesday, the RNC's primary function is being Trump's legal fund.

Legacy media is dying, and the hangers on are old corporate types with a "conservative" bias and agenda. The same shit happened at CNN a couple of years ago, right? Hyper polarization is not going away. It's the new normal.

DrugsMcChrist ,

2024 is going great, and I can't wait for things to get even better in October!

oh shit we're all going to die, aren't we

Yes, that horrible jackass. He might have good ideas on paper, but he was a miserable "candidate" whose only potential was to muddy up a shit show, and he couldn't even manage that.

can't afford to get my old man back fixed, but rich people dogs gonna live forever

This book was where the series completely left the rails for me. So fucking bizarre.

getting bird shit in my mouth. no, really. I have a recurring (but not frequent) "nightmare" about getting bird shit in my mouth through diverse accidents. there's even an incredibly vivid taste associated with it that I can recall when I'm awake. I'm guessing that toddler me took a gamble for science and wound up scarred for life.

short question by an aspiring user

Hello, apparently hanging out in Lemmy inadvertently makes you thinking about using Linux. I am planning to install Linux Mint cinnamon on an older laptop, which I want to bring to LAN Parties. From what I read I can just format my C:\ windows disk, install Linux via bootable drive and from what I understand, proton is basically...

DrugsMcChrist ,

Excellent choice of a starter distro. I hope you have fun

I’m wondering if AI can already solve this. I’m not even some crazy AI fanboy, I’m just thinking about the possibility of predictive AI being able to interpret compression artifacts to determine what forms would collapse into a particular pattern.

DrugsMcChrist ,

Well there it is, showing advertisers their shit next to typical X content works. Start sharing those screen grabs and bleed out the cancer.

Doctors watch Grey’s Anatomy for the fantasy, not because it’s good medicine. Long, long ago when I paid attention, it was the general consensus that Grey’s had a lousy grasp on medical reality. Remember the ghost sex arc? However, the show that I watched that doctors said was surprisingly accurate is Scrubs, a sitcom.

DrugsMcChrist ,

isn’t it only Empress at this point, which is the entire reason why she is tolerated?

DrugsMcChrist ,

the reason why they’re doing this and the reason why it probably won’t save the product line are the same: the only reason people were buying Amazon TV devices and smart displays was to side load apps

DrugsMcChrist ,

lubuntu after the LxQt shift

MX Linux, I just don’t get it

Fedora, dnf package management is ok, but it was a trip to be a newbie and be told that the out-of-box GUI package manager is broken and shit

DrugsMcChrist ,

I like how the article skims over the real reasons for the increase in piracy: fracturization of services means more expense for less of the content that I want, constantly raising prices (Hulu alone is $18 a month now) trying to force me onto ad supported plans, and there’s still ads all over everything anyway.

Les Revenants (The Returned). French series about a village where deceased residents start coming back from the dead. The ending was good, but there was a lot of ambiguity about what happened and why it stopped. I went down the rabbit hole and found some compelling reddit threads that tied it up rather neatly.

what are the exact numbers for the next Powerball drawing, in winning order?

…don’t fuck with me, genie, I got problems.

DrugsMcChrist ,

what are some modern examples of these? most phones that are still updated are phablets

What shitty things have your favourite bands/artists done?

Discovered recently that Electric Wizard were kinda dicks back in the day. “At the time, we were pretty bad people. I got arrested for arson of a car, outside a police station. Tim [Bagshaw] went to nick a crucifix off a church roof so we could use it onstage…”...

Oooof.

Arcade Fire: Win Butler is a sex pest.

Brand New: Jessie is a groomer of underage girls.

Marilyn Manson: his videos from 2009- pretty much lay it out in the open, but he’s the fucking worst physical and emotional abuser of women. Just a shit human being.

I have stopped purchasing these artists merch and they have all been removed from my Spotify. Their records now live in my basement. When I must listen, I listen to my personal rips, alone.

DrugsMcChrist ,

so what you’re saying is there are clubs where I can find nazis, and punch them

DrugsMcChrist ,

Yes, and please back up as much as possible while you’re there. If they take it from us, we build our own Internet Archive, with blackjack and hookers.

DrugsMcChrist ,

Yeah, there aren’t many Pumpkins fans left these days, but the Internet Archive still manages to have a collection that beats the Smashing Pumpkins Audio Archive from the early 2000s.

DrugsMcChrist ,

You don’t. See the first (introduction) video from the Alt-Right Playbook. Basically, there is a real risk that even if you “win” the argument, the red-pill derp just gets angry and takes it out on a convenient female target. The energy is better spent finding ways to counter red-pill ideology that don’t involve engaging directly with these people.

DrugsMcChrist ,

I… I was there with my whole family just six days ago. Whatever this feeling is, I don’t like it.
