  1. This one confused me for a good minute. Wordle 333 4/6* ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ 🟩⬜⬜🟨⬜ 🟩🟨🟨⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  2. Don't ever forget that black men sand women get shitty health care because health professionals just assume they're exaggerating. ‘Doesn’t Look Like He Needs an Ambulance’: 17-Year-Old Boston Student Has Stroke In Class. School Nurse Argues with His Mom to Pick Him Up Instead of Calling 911. NEWS.YAHOO.COM A 17-year-old Boston high school student suffered a stroke while in class but did not receive the medical assistance he needed after officials called his […] 17yo black kid has a stroke in school. The mother, who is wheelchair bound, gets called to pick him up. She can't and asks the nurse to call 911 instead. Nurse refuses, waits half an hour, and then calls child protective services because mom didn't show up to pick up her son. Only then did they call 911 where he was picked up and later diagnosed with a stroke. I like even better that the school told other parents that paramedics were called because the kid was having a diabetic episode. The school is really sorry and would have you know race did not play a factor here.
  3. Sound United wanted to buy Onkyo and Onkyo said no? Companies like Sound United and Music Tribe are the only way these smaller audio companies can exist these days. It's an expensive market to be in and you have to compete with the likes of Samsung or the wildly thin margins of TCL. I get that Japanese brands don't really like to sell themselves to foreign conglomerates, but Onkyo wasn't anywhere closet to competing with their colleagues at Sony or Panasonic. Still sucks. I've owned a bunch of Onkyo gear over the years.
  4. Easy. Wordle 332 3/6* ⬜🟩⬜⬜⬜ ⬜🟩⬜🟩⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  5. It's cool. There really aren't too many, but I do on occasion try to make sure there are threads for anime that might reach a larger audience than your typical shounen. Chainsaw Man is definitely one of those. There aren't too many this year...or really any year. Last season was probably Ranking of Kings. This season is maybe Spy x Family, and that's borderline. Next season is looking pretty sparse. I did LOVE the Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer manga, but I'm not really sure the anime will have all that wide of an appeal. Fall looks pretty good if Chainsaw Man doesn't slip into 2023. There's also Uzumaki which might not have super wide appeal, but I think will catch the interests of folks around here. There's also a chance for Vinland Saga season 2 this fall, but I'm not holding my breath for that one.
  6. Chainsaw Man is another one of those anime that should find fans even along folks that don't generally watch anime. There are always maybe one or two of those a year, and this should be one of the better entries. The source material is certainly good enough.
  7. At least velum is real word whose definition I know without looking it up. Nope, that's vellum. At least velum isn't archaic Scottish slang.
  8. Not too bad. Wordle 331 4/6* ⬜⬜🟨🟨🟨 ⬜🟩🟩🟨⬜ 🟩🟩🟩⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩
  9. I can't find anything in the law that says a viewpoint has to be based on fact, and that's actually the exact grounds on which social media networks were arguing about in court since last year. Viewpoint discrimination has never hinged on the factual nature of the view because first amendment and all that jazz. Have the courts ever decided to allow for the discrimination of viewpoints not based on facts? If that weren't the case, how would the courts ever handle anything related to religion? Do we just treat all religious ideas as facts in court? Imagine the crazy bullshit that would wreak. Again, under the law, Twitch might be able to ban the video of the crime, but not the guy's manifesto. You couldn't ban Nazism without banning all forms of political representation. You couldn't ban racial slurs without banning all talk of race.
  10. Twitch could likely get away with banning the actual murders, but not the racist manifesto. Either way, you're wildly underestimating what counts as a viewpoint. Conspiracy theories count as viewpoints here and I don't see how the line could be drawn at Holocaust denial but not, say, COVID misinformation or bigoted views of trans persons being sexual predators or everything revolving Q. I don't see the legal difference between saying the Holocaust didn't happen and saying Trump didn't lose the election or COVID isn't real or 9/11 was an inside job or the Earth is flat or the moon landing was a hoax. These are all easily proven falsehoods, but there are whole communities built around them. In your eyes, what is a type of speech that this law protects? Or do you think this law is specifically designed to not protect anything while sounding like it actually does? To me, the law reads like both sides BS. This site could ban ALL COVID speech, but not only COVID misinformation. Reddit could ban all political speech, but can't ban only Q-related stuff. If that's not what this law does, I'd love to hear a better explanation of it.
  11. You're skipping over the important part here. This right here is the meat of the actual bill as written... So a platform can say "Holocaust denial is against of ToS", but they can't actually stop users from expressing that they don't believe the Holocaust ever happened. This is nothing but both sides bullshit. Basically, Facebook can't ban Holocaust denial, but it can ban any talk of the Holocaust because the latter is not a viewpoint.
  12. He's referring to the Dem that tried to amend the bill to allow platforms to block content created by or in support of terrorists and/or acts of terrorism that was shot down by Republicans. I guess it comes down to whether you believe a terrorist live streaming their acts of terrorism counts as promotion. I think that's a pretty simple yes.
  13. I hate these so much. Wordle 330 6/6* ⬜🟨⬜⬜🟨 ⬜🟨⬜⬜🟨 🟨🟩⬜🟨🟩 ⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜🟩🟩🟩🟩 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 That said, I don't think there are any other words I could have guessed by the end there.
