  1. this article shows why science and politics should be as far away from each other as wolves and sheep. an AI is not, yet, a self aware entity capable of critical thinking and comprehension on an abstract level which (along with millennia of psychological evolution related to survival) would be the prerequisite for the formation of biases, it simply performs a statistical analysis on key words and returns results based on said statistics. it has no biases other than what's already present in the man made data pool

  3. im pretty sure that dress cost more than many americans make in a year
  4. if you call a woman beautiful she doesn't think twice about it, if you call her fat she will never forgive you... because elephants never forget
  5. Most regimes use that sort of tactic of putting neighbors against each other. The plan works in 2 parts 1. if you rat out your neighbor you get rewarded 2. if your neighbor is caught and you knew but didn't rat him out you get punished as a collaborator stick and carrot, both designed to make you live in fear of those around you, thus keeping the population divided and submissive.
  6. the simple fact is that the media are corporations and corporations have interests and agendas and political affiliations. so if they can spin a story in a way that promotes their point of view they will do it. 46% of hospital doctors here are against mandatory vaccination if you hear one news report and in another they say that its just a 1% of conspiracists. meanwhile in a tv channel, a representative of the doctor's union said that all hospitals are currently severely understaffed because unvaccinated doctors were suspended and in a different channel a government representative said that the healthcare system is ready to deal with the 4th covid wave. when you have so much conflicting information, someone's have to be lying
  7. here's an example. stores looted, cars and buildings on fire, dozens of dead, a complete disregard for covid lockdowns and media companies like CNN called the protests peaceful... and as soon as Trump was out, it all was swept under the rug as if the problems that triggered this situation never existed.
  8. more like, you, as the cat's owner, choose what to feed the cat based on your own tastes in food and you most likely never had mouse so you wouldn't choose that even if it existed. for the cat itself meat is meat, it couldn't care less where it comes from.
  9. Losing a pet is like losing a family member, its hard but all you can do is wait for the absence to become the new normal. Some suggest that you should get a new pet to fill the gap but i think that's the worst move. If you do that you see the new pet as just a substitute for the lost one and you can never love it properly. You should only get a new pet after the grief period is over and you have made peace with the loss.
  10. Have you heard this story from Italy? An old lady won 500k euro in the lottery and when she went to the store to confirm her win, the store owner grabbed the ticket and ran. Later he was arrested at the airport where he was taking a flight out of EU but they have yet to find the lottery ticket. Meanwhile, one of the cops that made the arrest disappeared.
  11. despite the prices, i decided to get a new GPU. Because people tend to snob AMD, the 6600XT dropped from its initial 700 euro price to 550 euro (still 180 over msrp) but i decided its as good as the price will get and i got one. the first thing i noticed over my old RX470 is the power saving that will, over time, pay off for the card. to use freesync i had the the fps limit set to 75 and the old card needed to run at 100W at nearly 80C and the fans at 100% to get me that number and more often than not it didn't get much over 60fps. this one is giving me stable 75fps in all games with 20-40W consumption and the fans off.
