Is it petty to point this out? Absolutely.

But I think it reflects where her priorities (and loyalties) are.

"I've had numerous conversations with the LT of Nintendo about tighter collaboration and feel like if any US company would have a chance with Nintendo we are probably in the best position. The unfortunate (or fortunate for Nintendo) situation is that Nintendo is sitting on a big pile of cash, they have a [board of directors] that until recently has not pushed for further increases in market growth or stock appreciation.

"I say "until recently" as our former MS BoD member ValueAct has been heavily acquiring shares of Nintendo and I've kept in touch with [ValueAct CEO] Mason Morfit as he's been acquiring. It's likely he will be pushing for more from Nintendo stock which could create opportunities for us.

"Without that catalyst I don't see an angle to a near term mutually agreeable merger of Nintendo and MS and I don't think a hostile action would be a good move so we are playing the long game. But our BoD has seen the full writeup on Nintendo (and Valve) and they are fully supportive on either if opportunity arises as am I."

This isn’t capitalism, it’s government-created oligopoly cancer.

If men valued fertility, why are underweight women preferred over chubby women?

Being underweight tends to cause fewer fertility issues. Also, due to so many people being overweight or obese, what is thought of as "underweight" by some is actually normal weight.

Men like weakness in women

Then they would all go for fat slobs who don't shave and are self-conscious about it. This shit makes no sense.

AFAIK there’s nothing for AM5. Some AM4 motherboards have an option to disable PSP, but it’s basically on the honor code that it’s actually disabled. PSP is necessary for the CPU to even start due to the way it’s designed so it’s not like it can be completely disabled.

There are also some ways to get rid of parts of the PSP code on some older CPUs.

If you want both modern and free of this shit you’re looking at either expensive and underpowered POWER architecture machines or RISC V SBCs.

critics argued it promotes violence

How many rap songs are about violence? How much violence has been cultivated by the culture rap creates?

Yet one country song about small towns defending themselves against that kind of shit is the one that gets branded violent.

Country music is not the genre killing blacks.

anti-cultural Marxist

At once, Cultural Marxism is "a far-right antisemitic conspiracy theory" (to quote Wikipedia) and a real thing that you're wrong to oppose.

She also argued the lower court adopted "a novel and disruptive conception of the state-action doctrine" that allegedly runs afoul of the First Amendment

The first amendment protects the people from government censorship, not the right of the government to censor the people.

I would say the answer is maybe, or perhaps more accurately "it depends on how far down the rabbit hole you want to go."

Intel processors come with Intel Management Engine, AMD's with their Platform Security Processor, and even ARM has TrustZone. All are ostensibly for security or more dubiously DRM, but they're also all black boxes and they are deliberately made as difficult to disable by the user as possible. Intel's runs MINIX, a whole operating system with a networking stack. AMD's is more recent and not as well documented, but it seems to run its own OS as well.

Which is to say that even if you disable TPM, the far more concerning backdoor remains. From this perspective you're better off using an older PC that lacks these "features," or one where IME or PSP can be disabled (which would also be older).

This is part of the reason that the high-end-for-the-time AMD FX-9590 still sells for >$100 on eBay while you can get a much more powerful processor for a lot less.

For a gaming rig where having modern performance is important, the best option might be to just go with Windows 10 LTSC and disable the TPM.

If you're wondering why this is relevant to KiA2, it's because "Throughout his NBA profession, he performed in 67 video games over two seasons."

Oh and also the dystopian reality that is AI writing obituaries.

This just makes me think it's working, and leftist violence needs to be paraded out for all to see.

You could travel halfway around the world and still end up in a society where you would be a lot less out of place than that of Shakespeare or Homer.

But of course, what they mean by "inclusiveness" isn't very inclusive at all.

Even subscribing to their interpretation of the war, it would be more like if "Ford" in this example was providing a radar or radio system to the French and decided it would be better to shut it off than have the Nazis, who know exactly where it is, bomb it immediately.

This is also hilarious considering all of the leftists who got upset at companies like Microsoft and Amazon for providing services to the military not too long ago.

we’d have potential male investors saying things like: Tell me, why am I supposed to like this woman?

I’m betting they meant that less in the “sell me on this person” sense and more in the “this lady is insufferable” one.

I'd be off the plane and calling my credit card company for a charge back.

This is Canada we're talking about. With WestJet being the only other game in town as far as major airlines that would be a pretty big risk.

Not that things are much better in the states, where they would probably collude to all blacklist you for not sitting in barf.

It's not the purview of the flight attendants. It's their job to inform the captain who should deem the aircraft not fit for dispatch if it's bad enough (which it might be given that other passengers could smell it), or otherwise have those seats blocked off.

I'm not entirely sure, it actually sounds like a further extension of their 'War on Terror'. Remember when Schumer demanded that the protesters of January 6 be put on a no-fly-list?

Using it to threaten political enemies has quite a history, but making airline employees the foot soldiers seems to be a much more recent phenomenon.

I doubt that it was the responsibility of those employees to clean up puke.

Of course not; this bullshit starts at the top. It's not their responsibility to bring the passengers wipes in the expectation that they would clean the seats themselves either though. Don't do that shit unless you're willing to clean it yourself.

The fault lies with Air Canada, not with the lower employees that they will no doubt try to feed to the wolves to save their pathetic skins.

Each party is responsible to the extent that they're responsible. No doubt Air Canada will try to throw those employees under the bus, but that pilot is just as deserving of being canned as the CEO.

This is the natural result of their COVID policies. If you can degrade people by making them wear ineffective masks while they try to eat the shit provided food it's not exactly a massive leap to forcing people to sit in puke for five hours.

Eventually, Benson continued, the employees gave them blankets to sit on and more wipes to clean the seats.

How about you clean your own fucking plane instead of trying to force passengers to clean puke.

the pilot came down the aisle and very calmly knelt down and told the two ladies that they had two choices: They could leave the plane on their own accord and organize flights on their own dime, or they would be escorted off the plane by security and placed on a no fly list

These people are drunk on power.

One thing to add to the reasons already posted here is that until very recently it was only available by mobile app and not website. It’s clear they rushed it out the door because of Musk buying Twitter.

Ultimately the entire supply chain has to be mirrored outside the woke wall.

It all starts with the banks, credit card companies, and payment processors.

Hosting mods isn’t free. To do this at scale you need to be able to collect money somehow whether it’s ads or subscriptions or donations and you can bet that if a based (or even neutral) mods site gets created the woke ghouls will do everything in their power to shut it down.

Keeping women down by commenting on their bodies has worked for a very long time.

If a man wore something see-through over his less than perfect dick you can bet that women would be commenting about it. But unlike Men's Journal here castigating men for having opinions on a woman's body, women's magazines would be joining in on the "fun."

Women judge men's bodies all the time. It's just that if a man complains (which he's naturally much less likely to do) journos are about 100% less likely to write hit pieces going after women for it. And naturally, if journos aren't reporting on it, it never happens.

They're jumping the gun and making assumptions (as usual).

The Goblin Rebellions were a series of rebellions in which the goblin population of the wizarding world revolted against discrimination and prejudice toward their kind by wizards and witches.

I'm betting the goblins turn out to not be the real bad guys anyways, or that some goblins come to your aid. That paper looks like it's supposed to be propaganda.
