And they were comically bad:

Beyond the rim of the star-light
My love Is wand'ring in star-flight
I know he'll find in star-clustered reaches
Love, strange love a star woman teaches.
I know his journey ends never
His star trek will go on forever.
But tell him while he wanders his starry sea
Remember, remember me.

Yeah, as an elder millennial, I’ve never been able to afford to live alone. This is by no means a new problem, but it’s definitely getting worse.


On every lemmy app/instance I’ve checked, it seems that the post and comment scores on users’ profiles have been replaced by post and comment counts.

I often look at scores to quickly check a person’s credibility/involvement, and the count is much less helpful than the score in that regard. I could see this data maybe being removed because it was too server intensive to calculate, but maybe there’s some other reason.

I’ve searched and can’t seem to find any explanation for this change in release notes, but maybe I’m just not searching correctly. Does anyone know why this change was made?

I don’t believe for a second this was accidental. If it were, there would be no reason to hide it.

I am not crazy! I know he stole those votes. I got more votes than 2016, one more than MAGA Carta. As if I could ever make such a mistake. Never. Never! I just - I just couldn't prove it. He covered his tracks, he got those idiots at the elections commission to lie for him. You think this is something? You think this is bad? This? This chicanery? He's done worse. That son of his! Are you telling me that Hunter just happens to be in business with Ukraine? No! He orchestrated it! Joey! And his son defecated through a sunroof! And I saved him! And I shouldn't have! What was I thinking? He'll never change. He'll never change! Ever since he was 9, always the same! Couldn't keep his hands off the children! "But not our Joey! Couldn't be precious Joey!" And HE gets to be the president? What a sick joke! I should've stopped him when I had the chance!

Perfectly toxic, as all stack overflow comments should be.

And just like 9/11, they were warned of the attack weeks in advance but were still woefully unprepared to protect their citizens.

Can we please include sales tax in that price too? It is also a bullshit hidden fee the way the US does it.

And it may be illegal in some states to not offer the customer an actual refund.

In Thursday’s decision, Anzalone recommended that Starbucks offer the benefits and higher pay to excluded employees, starting from the date when they went into effect for non-union workers, among other remedies.

Starbucks should also post a notice in its cafes telling workers that the NLRB found Starbucks had violated federal labor law, and detailing employee rights, she said.

This is the part that pisses me off the most - the only punishment is that Starbucks has to pay the unionized employees what they are owed and post a piece of paper correcting their earlier lies. There’s no fine, so they risked nothing by breaking the law.

This isn’t even enough to be considered a slap on the wrist. Other companies will take note and try any creatively dishonest policy they can come up with to prevent unionization.

Good. I hope he gets rich and that it ends this sort of bullshit in Texas schools.

This title is so misleading. France hasn’t banned the device, and the radiation levels could likely be fixed with a software update. French officials have stated that they may prohibit sale and issue a recall IF Apple doesn’t respond to their request. The article says as much:

France's junior minister for the digital economy, Jean-Noël Barrot, told newspaper Le Parisien that a software update would be able to address the radiation issues linked to the iPhone 12. Apple has two weeks to respond to France's request, if it fails to do so, Barrot stated that he is prepared to issue a recall of the device, which went on sale in 2020.

Also, why the hell did it take French agencies 4 years to test this device? Even if Apple says they won’t update the phones and is forced to stop selling them, taking a 4 year old phone off the market won’t really hurt them in any way.

That’s a ridden hard and put away wet 36.
