Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

Absolute perfect timing if you want everybody to just accept that death from COVID is going to be an unavoidable fact of life now.

Re: Rooty-tooty point and shootys

The thing about Friday's chart is that if you 100% eliminated all the gun murders we'd STILL be ahead of nearly everybody else.

It looks like a gun. What do you want your weapon to look like, a hash pipe?

Prebuilds are getting pretty iffy too. The best bet I've seen is to buy a laptop and commit to having it docked most of the time.

If there's a sucker born every minute and what they want to see is clowns, then obviously the most direct way to reel them in is to be a clown.

Re: The Many Poisonous Animals of the Amazon

Everyone else sees this as a sort of honeypot trap, right? Like it looks outwardly like a simple cynical attempt to address their well known mental health issues, but that's a paper-thin mask for something that's meant to help identify people who are dumb enough to think they can walk into a "I...

Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

The year that The Touch by Stan Bush appears in the soundtrack for every movie is either going to be the year I finally become happy or the year I punch out all the mascots at Disneyland. I won't know until it happens.

Re: Hot Tweets Cool Treats

Lo-Fi usually means it was passed through a noise filter and is still presented at 41.1k or greater bitrate.

Why the fuck did I write bitrate now people are going to correct me.

I meant sampling frequency.

I don't know what the messaging is in all of your states, but where I'm sitting the ask is that you keep doing what you're doing for exactly 26 more days (count em! Not a whole month, not even four weeks!) while the public sector does what it needs to do to make sure hospitals don't get overwhelmed ...

Just scale. It's expected that a certain number of people will just tough it out with a flu infection; that wasn't really an option this time.

I think generally Star Wars people get upset when Star Wars they get a theme park ride Star Wars when they're expected something a lot more thoughtful Star Wars. Some people Star Wars are just unable to get into the "theme park ride" mindset Star Wars completely, and so they develop a tast...

Re: "Coronavirus" is the category, dangit. (COVID-19 thread)

Currently vaccination rates are highly (and predictably) varied across income regions, and a higher rate of vaccine "hesitance" doesn't account for the discrepancy. In other words: Poor (and/or black) people haven't been vaccinated yet not because they're stupid but because we're horrible ...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

I mean why would component manufacturers bother to fix supply chain issues to the consumer market when they can set any price for any amount of supply direct to crypto miners and cloud service providers, at least one of which has a vested interest in negotiating resources away from consumers.

Yeah I figured last month it was time for a new build (this one's from 2017, good enough run) and woah no nope.
