Did they really “fall” for it though? Or did they just spread it because it fit their agenda?

+1 for the Dark Tower books.

But I’d note, there’s a dramatic tonal shift between the first half and the last half.

After book 4, you lose the flashbacks to Roland’s youth and it’s a straight through narrative for books 5, 6 and 7.

I think the accident that almost killed him put the fear of god in him.

TIL - the .ch country code is for Switzerland. (www.swissinfo.ch)

“The Helvetii, a Celtic tribe who battled Julius Caesar, gave their name to the Swiss territory. The Latin name for the country, Helvetia, still appears on Swiss stamps. The letters CH appearing on Swiss cars and in internet addresses stand for the Latin words Confoederatio Helvetica, meaning Swiss Confederation.”

Hey, I’ve been doing this 30 years and just learned it today, you have NOTHING to feel bad about. :)

We made treatment voluntary, addicts aren’t choosing it.

Is it wrong that my first reaction is “Sigh, when does the protest start?”

I could see vegan activists protesting the meat and cheese and homeless activists protesting the $35 entry fee and food waste in general.

Portland in general is a problem because people will protest anything and everything. They have no real value here.

Too busy protesting pipelines that have nothing to do with Oregon is my guess…

I was wondering what had happened, seemed like things got super quiet. Flipped over to my lemmy.world account and it was back to normal.

Plus, NORMALLY in reporting like this, there would be a link to see if the readers vehicle is impacted. I don’t think Reuters even bothered.

Says it’s updated as of 9/26.

Security is told explicitly not to engage because Target is afraid of lawsuits.

The thing is, it’s not one off shoplifters. It’s organized gangs of shoplifters.

Police will run enforcement actions from time to time, but it needs to be continual.

Sounds like someone wasn’t able to ship product and had their licensing pulled…

It’s a little bit more than that, but we won’t know what until the trial on Monday.

Possible outcomes:

Trump org is dissolved.
Assets are seized.
Trump, Jr., and Eric are banned from ever being corporate officers in NY.
5 year ban on obtaining loans.

Found liable for sexual assault and defamation in civil court isn’t quite the same as “convicted sex offender” in criminal court.

For example, he doesn’t (yet) have to join a sex offender registry.

“I demand summary judgement!”

“GRANTED!”

“No… not like that…”

IIRC this is the case where his lawyers neglected to ask for a jury trial, so it’s all on the judge and he IS NOT having it…

Is broadband essential, like water or electricity? New net neutrality effort makes the case (qz.com)

Landmark net neutrality rules rescinded under former President Donald Trump could return under a new push by U.S. Federal Communications Commission chair Jessica Rosenworcel. The rules would reclassify broadband access as an essential service on par with other utilities like water or power....

Pretty much. Try getting a job without online access, or applying for state and federal benefits. Or getting a doctor through your insurance plan.

I was part of the hardcore build it yourself crew for years and years, but I find now that for the last 10 years or so now, and especially with the death of places like Fry’s and all the bullshit Newegg pulled, it’s way easier and cheaper to buy a pre-built box that’s maybe 90-95% there, then tweak what you need to tweak.

Get that manufacturers warranty and forget trying to part it out yourself.

They were, but as somone who has both a One X and a Series X, I did run the game on both and it was not a horrible experience on the One X.

PS4 had it rough and original recipe Xbox One and One S were unplayable, but the One X got by.

But then, I don’t think anyone expected the game would need a full overhaul and, what? 3 years before the DLC would come out?

Glad you enjoyed it! I enjoyed figuring it out!
