I just mean, hey, now you're nationally known as a guy who can't stop himself from whackin' off everywhere he goes.

I mean, clearly he's already gotten off, that's the whole problem.

Re: The Continuing (Mis)adventures of Car Notch

Hilarious! I'm guessing if his Tesla stock doesn't pull out of free-fall he won't do it. He's a bit of a dumbass, but even he'll know not to risk his biggest money pile. Most of Tesla's profits came from their "liquid" assets being held in Bitcoin, all the profits of which have now been w...

Re: What about a thread for good news?

Australian researchers confirm the cause of SIDS, and identify a chemical that could be used to cure the underlying cause. I regret to inform you that this headline should've been in Jernalism: 1524941362411479043 (thread) tl;dr is that the study accurately says "we found a common thread in 26...

Re: Buttcoin

A friend of mine mentioned yesterday their bellweather for a true collapse is if Stablecoins, namely Tether, go (and according to that link, Tether is cracking). Which prompted the natural question: WTF is Tether and Stablecoins? So I looked it up and... motherfucker, is crypto backed by RESERVE CU...

Yeah, commercial jets are just way too complicated.

You can tell when the Marvel-mandated boilerplate ended and Raimi got to do his thing, and it's right when Bruce Campbell shows up for a cameo.

Also, my impression was that Mastodon is less of a "social media platform" and more of a "platform for building your own social media walled garden", where you have the ability to include/exclude other people's walled gardens (depending on their settings); good for the ability to...

Re: Insane in the Ukraine

What is the significance of the word Wolverines? It's the school mascot of Calumet, Colorado, which is totally a real thriving community that's conveniently ambiguous enough it could stand in for Any Rural Town Near You, not a tiny ghost town. https://c.tenor.com/sbsmIQQSD8MAAAAC/red-dawn-c-thomas-...

This is only the third solo Spider-Man movie - they probably didn't want to have The Spider-Man Moment in an ensemble film, even if they had the time to actually explore it - so then you have: - Homecoming (only five years after the last time they did The Spider-Man Moment with Marc Webb/Andrew Garf...

A Swiss resident in a Discord I'm in had this to say in regards to Swiss Neutrality and sanctions against Russia: To be precise, this isn't considered dropping neutrality.
