JD Vance is the least liked VP nominee in decades, according to polls
  • Reposting someone else's image from last week, sure makes me grin

  • JD Vance is the least liked VP nominee in decades, according to polls
  • I'm liking the dynamics, JDs couchfucking unlikeability will make him lean more into his disingenuous worker advocacy. Causing the dems to meet their ante and retaliate with even more pro-worker policies than before. Could be interesting to watch and lucrative for the ever-gregarious working class!

  • Nope
  • Just use up one of those gift cards you can use in any store and use that number for free trial signups. Then they can't charge you when the trial period expires.

  • You don't have to fear these things
  • I think I read that originally yoga was a mental and physical practice that later on had all these layers of religiosity added. Someone more knowledgeable feel free to correct me.

  • If Clinton, Trump, and Did Not Vote were presidential candidates in 2016
  • While she did win the popular vote by a wide margin the chart shows how many electors each candidate (including No Vote as a candidate) would get rather than directly representing popular vote by state.

  • Harris, endorsed by Biden, could become first woman, second Black person to be president
  • I share your concerns but shes too new a candidate to have polling numbers reliably showing what states she'd be weak in. Wish it hadn't been such a late switchup, certainly not ideal to fall back to Bidens VP suddenly like this but perhaps it catches the Trump campaign flat footed. Perhaps Vance wouldn't have been the GOP VP pick if Trump had known he was up against Harris, seems to be some indication their campaign is struggling to pivot with regards to the switch.

  • Harris, endorsed by Biden, could become first woman, second Black person to be president
  • The convention hasn't happened yet, which alternative candidate(s) are you supporting for the dems? Why not just have that candidate be the VP pick?

  • Harris, endorsed by Biden, could become first woman, second Black person to be president
  • I'm happy for another chance at a Gen X president , not ready for a Millennial VP

  • Today I'm grateful I'm using Linux - Global IT issues caused by Crowdstrike update causes BSOD on Windows
  • US and UK flights are grounded because of the issue, banks, media and some businesses not fully functioning. Likely we'll see more effects as the day goes on.

  • Every VLine rail service in the state is currently suspended due to a communications fault. Right in peak hour
  • Flights are grounded in the US and UK, this won't be limited to Australia

  • Butter is serious business
  • Butyric Acid

  • Butter is serious business
  • Président is in Walmart near me, beats that green and silver Irish butter imho

  • Underground caves do exist on the Moon, radar observations confirm
  • They've found hitting it with microwaves sinters it together pretty readily, so that would be the likely way they'd deal with it. Apparently also an effective way of making bricks out of it!

  • It’s never been easier for the cops to break into your phone
  • 'Round here we say "with accident" or "of accident", thank you

  • Biden says it’s ‘time to outlaw’ AR-15 after Trump assassination attempt
  • Most of the progressives I know are moving toward gun ownership rather than away, out of despair

  • Biden, in 1st major speech after Trump shooting, accuses him of 'lying like hell'
  • How much do you pay for ground news I keep getting advertised it on youtube and ehh I guess it might be interesting

  • poni
  • Maybe you havent watched Letterkenny yet

  • Okay, *You* Can Stay
  • At the RNC nomination meeting thing last night Trump looked like he'd spent most of the time since the attack literally ugly-crying in horror. Looking forward to hearing his speech when he formally accepts the nomination, and seeing how his new "uniter" persona plays out

  • YouTube update breaks fullscreen on my Android 9 phone

    Breaking things that worked flawlessly for years, nice. Hopefully fixed soon. It's not just me is it?

    Screen rotates when I click the fullscreen button but video doesn't fill the screen, rotates back to vertical after a second. I was able to get it to work properly by turning on rotate screen in the pull down menu and then turning the phone. It still remained in the squashed format shown above but when I pull the video down and then tap on the minimized video it pops out into full screen finally. So it's still usable but the 5 step fix is pretty frustrating.

    No I haven't filed a bug report, youtube is a grownup company and do it's own rudimentary beta testing. Sad to see unforced errors like this more and more common in longstanding industry standard apps.

    American Privacy Rights Act (APRA) passes House, headed to Senate. Overshadowed by TikTok ban but arguably much more important.
