anti-vaxx Show more
It's supremely ironic to me that anti-vaxxers cite distrust of the pharmaceutical industry as a reason not to vaccinate, while at the same time also citing Andrew Wakefield's "research" that vaccines cause autism.
Which would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad because he manipulated his "research" in order for his own vaccine to be used instead. Which is peak pharmaceutical profit mongering. The irony is lost on anti-vaxxers though and reminding them of this really doesn't work. At all.

"i'm against BDS but i support their freedom of speech!"
interesting. me, i'm way more enthusiastic about putting economic and political pressure on israel to compel it to recognize the rights of palestinians, end the humanitarian crisis it has created in gaza, stop expanding into palestinian territory and end the military occupation of said territory, than i am about free speech.

I’m trying to figure out what the percentage is of movies/shows with a Muslim terrorist plot versus the number of real terrorist attacks by people with an Islamic background and then compare that to the percentage of movies/shows with a white American terrorism plot versus the number of real life white American terrorism attacks.
Snips' built its voice assistant using the Rust programming language
This is so good - a voice assistant that is fully on-device and doesn't need an internet connection.
This is what I’m taking about. This young man asked Rubio a straight up question concerning his survival and this clown can’t give him a straight. This is pathetic.
America will never be shit as long as cowards like Rubio are allowed to make policy for millions of people. This is utter madness.
"Today, all Snips’ embedded code is written in Rust. Over time, Poumeyrol has trained the embedded software engineers to code in Rust, as well as a significant number of the company’s Machine Learning scientists. As they all got more familiar with the language, the team’s go-to reference was the second edition of The Rust Programming Language Book, published online by the open source Rust Project."

i told my counselor yesterday i was feeling much better lately and i mentioned i had cut facebook out of my life. she said that social media has a negative effect on mental health; it tends to show you whatever will rile you up the most, and creates a negative feedback loop. and i realized cutting tumblr out would probably be great as well.

...of course, their answer is going to be that random sources they decide to label fake are fake, and ones that confirm their ideology are real, but that's to be expected.

Trump / Child Abuse Show more
The Trumper dating site which allows only cis straight people* is using in the adverts, a picture of a man who was convicted of raping a child. #familyvalues
* They don't, however, discriminate on the basis of whether or not the people are already married to somebody else, so if you love Trump and are into non-monogamy and don't mind giving money to child abusers, this might be where you find love...
