shiroininja,

Time yet again for the Supreme Court to attack human rights again! This time it’s the right to exist!

shiroininja,

That’s the problem with social media. It enables misinformation via omission. Like in the instance of “studies”. Rarely are sample size or controls shared, or the process nor are the sponsors of the “study”.

I’m going to stop before I start ranting about my pet peeve about how untested theories are shared on social media as fact and has ruined and dumbed down our consumption of science news and information.

shiroininja,

I wasn’t talking about this exact instance. Obviously the quality of links someplace like Lemmy are going to be better than someplace like Facebook.

It doesn’t matter, the majority of people won’t click on that in the article. It’s better to just link the paper than some other writer’s opinion/conclusion on the paper. That’s another problem we have, we read other people’s interpretation of data instead of reading it ourselves, understanding it, and coming to our own conclusion.

But that also doesn’t solve the problem of quality of the research. Just because a paper has been written, doesn’t make it valid if the study is so small or methods are sketchy, its conclusions are useless.

shiroininja,

I mean he’s kinda right if we don’t just commit to fully helping Ukraine instead of waffling with every budget, bill, and election.

But him saying that is a good way to motivate stubborn Americans, so he can keep on saying it. It’ll get us going.

shiroininja,

The Machine is better than a lot of that stuff lol

shiroininja,

Yeah I feel the same. Have you played possum country?

shiroininja,

Yeah I really hate how gamer culture has changed. It’s non stop bitching. Yeah there can be bugs in games, it happens. Lmao you telling me there were no bugs in the games I bought on disk twenty years ago and there was no infrastructure to digitally update them? I’ve got boxes of old pc games that I can use to prove this is just something that happens.

People act like there are nothing but bad releases anymore but 23/24 have had phenomenal titles. I’d say this is a great time for the industry as long as you’re not stupid enough to buy micro transactions and $150 collectors editions Lmao

shiroininja,

I’ve never paid full price for a game. Not in a very long time. And I don’t buy transactions. 🤷

shiroininja,

Yeah I guess I should revise my statement. I haven’t paid the full 60-70 price for AAA game in a very long time.

Indie games seem to be priced more fairly, most of the ones I’ve bought tend to be 20-25 dollars.

And I’ve never bought any kind of special edition, unless it’s an older game and it comes with all the dlc bundled, like oblivion GOTY edition or something.

But I’m also a /r/patientgamer so I don’t really see a reason to buy something just because it’s new and shiny, unless it’s some kind of multiplayer. But most of them have become such a quick burn where the player base drops after a year when the hype train moves to the next stop, I don’t really see the point in buying them

shiroininja,

I’ve said it a million times, we had the opportunity to get into the market early under Bush JR, but he shot down investing in the tech. Now who is one of the top exporters?

shiroininja,

100% true

shiroininja,

Thank you. I’m only just starting rebuilding my local music collection. I’m tired of Apple Music dropping music or playing with versions. I’m hoping to build my own streaming server

shiroininja,

I’ll say it again because I always do. I’ve never seen AI art that I couldn’t tell was AI generated . It’s always wrong. The light source is always wrong, like the lighting is painted on subjects instead of cast onto them. And it lacks imperfections caused by human hand. Maybe it’s the photographer in me, but I’ve never seen believable lighting in AI art

shiroininja,

Oh I don’t work with the stuff, it’s just from what I’ve seen. I don’t really find any AI art I’ve seen to be this big impressive thing. I’m more interested in it from a data standpoint. I feel like not actually making your own art feels kind of depressing. Like what’s the point? Unless it’s for commercial use? Like if I feel creative, I’m going to make something.

Like I used to write, and I feel like if I wanted to write, I’d write. I don’t see the point in “writing” a prompt that pulls from other people’s work. Like what would I get out of it?

Yeah, commercial applications for it are great. It Makes life easier, lowers the barrier to entry, and hopefully will result in less work.

But for purely creative and cultural reasons, I just don’t see the point. Like I know nothing is original and we all pull from somewhere, but part of the enjoyment —to me— is the process of learning, of researching, reading other’s work to hone my craft.

And art without that is soulless and not an act of expression that comes from the deep reaches of ourselves.

It’s as empty as somebody buying a race car and a team to manage it, versus someone building their own and knowing every inch of it.

Joe Biden calls trans people “fabric of our nation” in Trans Day of Visibility proclamation (www.lgbtqnation.com)

In commemoration of the upcoming Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), President Joe Biden issued a statement praising trans people’s contributions to society and describing actions his administration has taken to counter transphobic bullying and extremism. Additionally, many members of Biden’s Department of Health and Human...

shiroininja,

I prefer launch no man sky to what it is now. Sometimes you don’t need a hundred features and multiplayer in a game. Sometimes you just want to calmly explore the universe and feel alone for a bit. Not have a million things to do and pop ups . I have enough of that in my life and other games

shiroininja,

I’ve always wanted a game that I could pilot from the planet to space and we’re here

shiroininja,

What I’ve seen from the average person, torrenting safely is for techies and most aren’t bothered with the effort of it. It’s a low hurdle that most people don’t want to waste time on. Building a local collection takes a shit ton of time. I’m currently rebuilding my music collection to roll my own music streaming server and I’m questioning the time value. But I’m sick of music I like getting deplatformed due to licensing

shiroininja,

I bet it’s for the National industry, fake tech support call center scams and other places. A lot of them pretend to be in America. That and generally a lot of developers there fake their location.

shiroininja,

Originally, it was people answering the questions. Now it’s the actual tech doing it Lmao

shiroininja,

This so much. Put it up there with Lockheed

shiroininja,

Ok I know I’m going to get ripped for this one, but I have a sincere question. I don’t understand how a food dye can create behavioral problems. What chemicals are in red 40, and how are they directly linked to behavior, not just through correlation? Like is there actually proof of this that we’re ignoring? Because I only hear really crunchy moms talk about this, and I take their opinions on diet with a Boulder of salt.

shiroininja,

I like just good old gnome terminal. Theming scripts work well with it, like the gruvbox one that has like a hundred color themes. it’s got all the right features. just works
