vaping deaths, death priorities
I wish officials would give half as many fucks about people dying from car violence or being unable to afford necessary medications as they give about fucking vaping.
I wish I could mute specific games on #twitch. I don't care if even my favorite streamers are playing Dead by Daylight or Mario Maker
Religious stuff, long
I had a number of kids from hyper religious families come through my science class.
They were so keyed up, I was the enemy, they were ready to be persecuted and bullied by me for their beliefs. When that never happened, I don’t think they knew what to do, they looked deflated.
I hadn’t intended to sow doubt in their minds, but their communities had told them that science educators HATED Christian, and that they would probably be openly mocked in class. We just talked about rocks and plate tectonics though, I stole their martyrdom.
Eventually, they stopped waiting for the other shoe to drop, and became some of my best students.
Science slowly became fun to them, and scientists became humans, not demons
Religious indoctrination is dangerous, but people are remarkably resilient 😊
Saturday morning. Your new brain implants are now working. You hear the oil sizzling and start smelling the eggs, pancakes, and orange juice.
"Breakfast will be ready soon," the robocook says.
You don't remember hiring a robocook. WTF?
There's no food in the kitchen but the smell is still there. The cook is a hologram in front of you. "Order breakfast to go, by IHOP™?"
The smell fades away.
You read the brain implants' TOS.
> For future reference, whenever a techbro talks about “disrupting an industry,” they mean: “replicating an already existing industry, but subsidizing it heavily with venture capital, and externalizing its costs at the expense of the public or potential workers by circumventing consumer-, worker- or public-protection laws in order to hopefully undercut the competition long enough to bring about regulatory capture.”
AT&T invited pentesters to their site with a public bug bounty, but then redirected probes to the FBI's tips website. Dick move.
« Redirecting an innocent hacker's authorized scanning to aim at unauthorized FBI targets is the equivalent of Swatting.
AT&T should be investigated. »
