I do not care about Twitch, but as usual it's always the users who gets the short end.

I certainly hope their food is better in other countries than the U.S. where it is absolute garbage.

COP28 has been dominated by the oil industry. It is a farce.

Posted in: Seven still missing after U.S. Osprey crash off Japan See in context

Good link sakurasuki. The Osprey was indeed plagued with mechanical issues which has since been fixed by both engineering retrofits and new flight procedures.

That said, both of those things may not have been properly adopted by that base. Which seems to be the obvious case. This would also mean a failure by base command, who is always responsible for those under their command. Hence, requiring investigation by U.S. regional command.

Bottom line, once is a mistake, more than once is dereliction.

The U.S. military needs to find out what is going on at that base. Standards and procedures are not obviously not being followed.

Posted in: New York judge lifts gag order that barred Donald Trump from maligning court staff in fraud trial See in context

The appellate judge is wrong and this will be challenged.

Threatening court officials and witnesses is never legal.

Posted in: Biden vs Trump, the unwanted rematch for America’s soul See in context

That anyone is considering a man who openly instigated an insurrection and stole nuclear secrets as a candidate is beyond belief.

Posted in: What do you think about the use of AI to create the "last" Beatles song, "Now and Then?" What if AI were used to create new songs or movies featuring deceased artists? See in context

Most pop music has been lazy, repetitive and vapid long before any of us were born. A.I. brings nothing new to that formula.

In other words, how would I be able to tell the difference and why would I care? Trash is trash no matter how it's made.

The RE industry in America makes used car dealers look honest.

It complicated, messy, costly and sleezy.

Posted in: It's day 20 with no House speaker, and lower-level names are starting to reach for the gavel See in context

The burn it all down caucus is doing what they were elected to do - burn it all down. Unfortunately they aren’t competent enough (like Pelosi) to build it all back up.

They literally forgot to leave the house they were burning down.

Posted in: Trump's darkening language sparks fears of violence See in context

Trump is clearly inciting. But it has resulted in serious consequences for everyone who listened to him so far and went too far. And will do so in the future as well.

Almost 50% of all news jobs created after EACH of the last 4 U.S. recessions have been temp jobs.

A person, nor a country, can build security or a future with such insecurity.

I am sad to see the comments here from posters who underestimate the dangers of large crowds. Should we wait until a tragedy happens then blame the officials? Because that is what will eventually happen. Both the tragedy and the incorrect blame.

Threatening the court is never a good idea. I would expect nothing less from this man with a record of mistake after mistake for 40 years.
