Google engineer: DRM has nothing to do with piracy - it's to control the software and hardware used for playback. by TheRealPanzer in technology

This is a really stupid quote; it's controlling the software and hardware specifically to prevent piracy. By controlling the software and hardware you can prevent direct access to the original compressed video and audio streams, ensuring that any pirated copy is essentially a recording -- either recompressed and lower quality than the original, or a massive uncompressed file.

Police Chief Arrested, Jailed for Running a Meth Distribution Ring by Drewski in PoliceMisconduct

Chitwood’s arrest should serve as a red flag that the war on drugs has failed. Government should use this as an opportunity to learn that meth is a function of the war on drugs.

Pretty sure meth and other hard drugs are “functions” of people wanting to get really really high. Legalize meth and you remove the social/legal implications of using, which will make “trying it” a much less difficult decision. You’ll end up with even more junkies destroying their lives and the lives of their friends and families and pets and generally just being complete leeches dragging down society. The only things gained from legalizing hard drugs are tax money and interest payments on maxed out credit cards.

Similarly you could look up whether civilians in ukraine are doing the same, which they obviously are. To put it a different way, if russian soldiers were doing this, and it was possible to triangulate their position this accurately, they would very quickly become tiny bits of russian solider mixed with cell phone components. It would not take long at all for soldiers to be ordered to destroy their phones to prevent making themselves easy targets. Unless you want to pretend that a country is run by a literal toddler commanding an army of mentally deficient newborns, all with severe learning disabilities, it is not reasonable to believe that this component of opsec would be overlooked in this way.

As the cameraman goes around the corner you see her body laying face down on the ground about 20ft away. A man tries to drag her to safety but her body is completely limp and as he struggles there’s 1 or 2 frames where it is obvious her face is caved in.

You’re obviously overcomplicating the need for a legal option for abortion and still ignoring the actual question, which is: why should abortion be a right? A woman’s wealth or minority status has literally nothing to do with the morality or necessity of aborting a pregnancy unless you’re into eugenics. And the majority of those who support abortion seem to take it a whole lot further than wanting a legal option, completely trivializing it and treating it like an alternative to contraception.

The data is pretty clear: the longer a person is exposed to oxygen, the more likely they are to have health complications leading to death. It is also highly addictive; in a recent study 100% of participants expressed physical and psychological discomfort as well as decreased cognitive acuity when deprived of oxygen. This dependence can even be passed from mother to child during pregnancy, with the fetus being fully dependent on oxygen consumption by the mother. We as a society need to come together and find a way to break this chemical’s grip on so many lives.

Look man I’m giving you simple, legitimate ways to observe the curvature of the earth, or if the earth has no curvature, observe the flatness and easily prove me wrong. If you just want to cover your eyes and plug your ears that’s your choice, but don’t pretend you’re doing anything different.

And you can actually very easily measure the force of gravity btw; not sure where you got it in your head that everyone just takes it for granted. At sea level, gravity is constantly accelerating all matter toward the center of the earth at approximately 32 feet per second, per second. Again you can derive this value yourself by dropping any heavy object (or light object in a vacuum, because air resistance) and seeing how long it takes to fall different distances.

I think your main misunderstanding is one of scale. Yes, the earth rotates quickly compared to speeds you normally encounter day to day. However, the earth is extremely large. Even rotating at nearly 1000 miles per hour, it takes an entire 24 hours to rotate once. That means over the course of just 1 hour, you are experiencing only 15 degrees of rotation around the earth. That’s .25 degrees per minute. AKA completely imperceptible, and since everything else including the atmosphere is also experiencing that motion, you obviously are not going to feel like you’re moving 1000mph because everything else is moving just as fast. And you aren’t flying off into space tangent to the earth’s surface, because gravity is easily counteracting that tiny bit of angular momentum and curving your trajectory back down.

Dude. You asked for proof that you “can do right now”. Don’t take my word for it. Literally go do either of the things I mentioned. Neither are difficult. The truth is well within your grasp. Go see it for yourself. And if you’re not afraid of some math you can experimentally measure acceleration from gravity using any heavy object and a stopwatch. With that you can easily verify or disprove not only the force of gravity itself but the size and mass of the earth right from the comfort of your desk. Again, the proof you seek is right in front of you if only you’d open your eyes and look.

what proof can you give me that I can do right now to prove the ball earth?

Go to a dock at a beach with a pair of binoculars. A telescope even. Any time of day will do. Calm seas for best results. Watch a boat move away from you. The farther it is from you, the less of it will be visible, starting from the bottom. It will appear to be descending towards the horizon. Eventually it will no longer be visible. This is due to the curvature of the earth, and it's one of the ways even ancient civilizations were able to determine that the earth was round. If you don't have a beach near you, all you need is flat ground, a piece of cardboard, and a laser pointer. Mount the laser so it is pointing at the center of the cardboard. Move the cardboard away. The farther you move, the higher the laser dot will hit on the cardboard. Try this in different directions and/or locations for additional evidence.

airplanes fly in straight lines

Go get a ball. Draw a dot on the ball. Hold the ball so that the dot appears centered relative to your vision. Without rotating the ball, draw another dot anywhere else on the ball. You will see that it is perfectly possible to draw a straight between the points, relative to the surface of the ball.

suez canal level for 100+ miles .. connecting to oceans

Dude. Lmao. The earth's SURFACE is curved. We live on its surface, with gravity pulling us toward the center of the curve. It pulls everything, not just us. Land, water, air, everything is pulled to the center. This means that altitude itself is relative to the center of that curve. Having a canal connect two oceans on a curved earth does not mean that one ocean is higher or lower. Relative to the center of the earth, they are at the same altitude.

I know you're likely schizophrenic but if not I would really, really recommend that you just all of your opinions aside for a minute and just read about gravity. Wikipedia would be easiest but you can pick any source that doesn't presume a flat earth. Pretend what you're reading is describing a fictional reality if you need to, but just read it in full and then ask yourself if it seems plausible that such a force would explain a curved earth. Your answer might surprise you.

Sounds like you’re the one with strong opinions that you’d never consider letting go, lol. Here’s a really interesting documentary which covers some of these topics extensively: https://youtu.be/j9w-i5oZqaQ. Regardless of whether you believe it or not I think you’ll find it interesting at least.

Doesn’t cover dinosaurs, but I would just mention that lizards are not immortal and definitely do not keep growing forever. Also given that dinosaur bones do not match any extant reptile, do you at least entertain the notion that the supposed ancient lizards that made them were different species than what currently exists? Are you just claiming that not all dinosaurs were as large as the fossils we’ve found?

i dunno, maybe because they keep discovering 'new' oil deposits.

Believe it or not it is actually not trivial to find oil deposits even with modern technology, and once they are found it is also not trivial to access them. We can only guess at how many there actually are in a given area and how much each one holds based on geological, seismic, and gravimetric surveys.

and the dinosaur theory is just fucking stupid, again a cult group that closely guards its story

Why, in your opinion, are big versions of the lizards we have today a more likely explanation than big lizards that are unlike the ones we have today?

pyramids are poured granite. end of story.

That’s most certainly not the end of the story; why do you think the pyramids are poured granite? Did you know the pyramids are fairly close to an ancient quarry with pretty extensive evidence of their stone working processes? Not just tools, but various partially shaped/finished stones.

dinosaurs are big lizards that had the time and space to get that big

Lmao how is this even a conspiracy? "Yeah okay there was life millions of years ago and yeah it looked like the bones we found but they aren't different species or anything they're just normal lizards that got real big and when the get big their bones look significantly different"

Not everyone, not even the majority of people, have the mental capacity for coding and the vast majority of those that do don’t have any interest in it. Like every other field, there’s no need to encourage people to pursue it as it will naturally attract those that want to.

That said, I knew a guy in college who had been coding since middle school and turned in a final project with over 200 “if else” statements in a row because he couldn’t wrap his head around boolean logic. Now he works at SpaceX.

Believe it or not criminals/public figures/celebrities are very common targets for schizos to project their insanity onto, either as the perpetrator in the very common phenomenon of false confessions, or as the victim. These delusions are often sexual and often involve strange seemingly unrelated religious or ideological actions in addition to a more normal and plausible action, such as the “baptism” as part of a sexual assault in this case.
