EU charges Elon Musk’s X for letting disinfo run wild
  • No, but he is finding out why twitter had all of its policies on combatting misinformation before he took over and gutted the staff… to prevent getting sued. You can say anything you want in America and the government can’t tell you that you aren’t allowed to say it, but you are still accountable for the damages caused by what you say… just ask Alex Jones.

    But operating in other countries doesn’t afford the same protections from government scrutiny.

    Disinformation campaigns are part of the reason social media is causing as much social strife in the world. It is not outside a logical line of thought that governments are going to attempt to minimize the damages from platforms like Twitter when they can. You may not beat misinformation, but you can minimize the financial incentive to promote it if you fine the fuck out of it when you find it.

  • Quit my job today to go into business for myself (electrician). I'm not quite free from work, but at least now *I'm* the one getting paid for it.
  • It’s hard, but an adventure. You’re betting on yourself. You get to win the wins, but you lose the losses too. Work hard and hang in there. Find a place in your market and keep grinding. Learn and grow and don’t be afraid to change your mind about problem solving, as issues come up. Best wishes.

  • The lawyers who killed Elon Musk's $56 billion Tesla payday want $370,000 per hour
  • This is a shitty article. Does someone have the full story?

    If the guy that initiated the lawsuit had only 9 shares, the decision was ultimately overturned when stockholders voted to reinstate Musk’s compensation package, and the lawsuit didn’t do any tangible thing to create value for the shareholders, why would anyone be on the hook for paying this firm’s legal bill other than the guy that initiated the lawsuit?

    No one deserves to make the kind of money Musk is pulling down, but I can at least see an argument about him being in a leadership position at a company that is generating a lot of capital because that’s how our shitty system works. The lawyers are trying to have shareholders pay their fees based on present value of stock when they had no impact on how that stock got to that price, and Musk’s compensation package means the stock the lawyers are claiming to have saved from going to musk… are still going to Musk…

    What am I missing?

  • WWHRD?
  • Cognac is essentially distilled alcohol from grapes… think about using wine to make distilled alcohol. I’m not positive, but I think I t was originally a way monks thought they could preserve wine through distillation and reconstitute it back into wine at a later time, but turns out not to have worked like that. Once you boil off the alcohol and discard the mash, you don’t get the ‘wine’ part back.

    It’s just a different base to ferment and distill into a hard spirit. Because it starts as a sweeter fruit than grains, like rye, wheat, or barley, it tends to have a sweeter flavor. It’s particularly nice as a warm drink in the winter, but a bit sweeter than bourbon.

  • Would you like to give us some free money today?
  • The ‘making the food’ and ‘handing it to you’ is the price of the good. A tip is for how well they do that service and the atmosphere and experience they provide in the exchange.

    If you have counter service and don’t clean up the table after me, there isn’t much opportunity for you to have good enough service to warrant a tip.

  • Diamond Shruumz microdosing candies may be linked to a death and nearly 50 illnesses, FDA says
  • And he shouldn’t be taking huge doses for the sake of huge doses. It’s not about quantity, it’s about experience. If you want to walk on the edge, you should have someone that wants to walk on the edge with you. He shouldn’t be asking for babysitters. It’s fine to want to experiment, but that shouldn’t become someone else’s responsibility or journey.

  • I’m not sure if you want to encourage or discourage, but you can find labs where you can legally purchase mushrooms spores, then other sites where you can buy grow bags that take the majority of the effort and chance of failure out of the equation. It’s legal and not a hard thing to find. If you grow them for ingestion… that’s illegal. If you grow them for research and educational value… that’s not illegal, so they can sell to the public.

    I’ve grown for personal use your free and on for years. Pick up a couple stringers of spores and a few grow bags and you can control the process. It’s not 100% efficient, so expect 1 out of 3 bags to work, more or less, on the first attempt…

    But you should be able to put together an attempt for 50-60$, and it’s a learning experience, if nothing else.

    I would suggest everyone tries a reasonable amount of Sharon’s at one point or another in their lives. It’s not quite an out-of-body experience, but it lets you look at your own life through another lens to see what really resonate with you and your desires on how you live.

  • It’s the quasi-legal framework I would be worried about here. Without federal legalization and regulation, you have a patchwork set of rules companies like this operate under that just don’t offer any real protection.

    If he’s getting them illegally, there are tons of providers that have good(cultivation) practices… it’s just hard to find one if you don’t already have a connection. Growing mushrooms is easy… just not legal in most places.

  • Louisiana governor who said 'I can't wait to be sued' over Ten Commandments law gets his wish
  • The actual text concerning religion says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;…”. It’s arguable that requiring publicly funding schools to display a specific religions moral code is establishing their religious views as a standard others must follow.

    The second part of that (prohibiting the free exercise thereof) is not affected. They are free to do whatever they want in their private homes and institutions. They just are not free to force those practices on others or other’s children. You don’t have the freedom to “exercise” if exercise means forcing your will on others. And anyone that thinks that should be the case is specifically calling to remove that constitutional freedom from our society.

    It’s un-American… by definition…

  • What are some activities which are free or inexpensive that I can do to entertain myself / keep good mental health while searching for a better paid job?
  • Stretching. Good for flexibility, mobility, and you can combine it with meditation for an added mental health benefit.

    I do some research online and watch a few videos for ideas.

    Reading, stretching, hiking or just plain walking around the neighborhood or local parks, learning to cook and plan healthy meals…. These are all inexpensive and there is an abundance of free information available online. All of them encourage a healthy lifestyle, which will contribute to to good mental health.

  • Red states strike deals to show controversial conservative videos in schools | Educational material from PragerU is now offered to public schools in six states
  • This is the DARE program all over again. No quicker way to lose any trust in your government than getting fed garbage programs before you’re mature enough to understand them. As soon as you realize what’s going on, they lose all credibility…. and it’s hard to get it back once it’s gone.
