A NYTimes photographer took a picture of Trump a moment before he was struck by a bullet
  • It's the photo of a politician, which is against the rules that make this community pleasant for everyone else. You can find the guidelines of this community in the sidebar

  • A NYTimes photographer took a picture of Trump a moment before he was struck by a bullet
  • This post goes against the community guidelines, please remove it

    Edit: you can disagree, but it still goes against rule 2 of this community and I'm so sick of having political photos everywhere. There are tons of political communities already, go post there please

  • What are the most evil media corporations in the world?
  • They are "on their side" when it's in their interest to do so. Which, bluntly, is true for almost all people. Absolute altruism--doing a 'good' thing for which you receive absolutely no reward (including public recognition or a sense of smug superiority) at all--is so rare as to be extinct. That's how politics is always played, my dude

    ...that's literally what I have been saying. Matter of fact, your whole reply was just a different way of saying the same thing. You just repeated my points and tried to be cool by adding the "my dude" at the end.

    I'm done with this pointless conversation. Goodbye

  • What are the most evil media corporations in the world?
  • Indeed they can and do support things...things that will allow them to make more money. They are called investments.

    The "fight" with DeSantis was all theatre and their "win" simply allows them to continue to rule on their land as if nothing changed.

    And I think you are mixing correlation with causation: just because they happen to support and give money to Democrats, it doesn't mean they stand by them. In the same link you shared, it shows they gave money to the Republicans and Nikki Haley...which is not something someone would do if they truly supported the things you said they do.

    And that's the whole point. They are not someone. They are a company, controlled by individuals who are simply looking to maximize profits. You think they are left- or center-aligned but that is simply because that reflects the majority of their customer base. If tomorrow the right suddenly comprised the majority of their customers, they would change side immediately.

    I cannot believe people in 2024 still think giant multinational companies can "be on their side"

  • What are the most evil media corporations in the world?
  • They are a company, they don't support anything. They only look out for the most profitable paths to make money. Just last week Disney started giving donations to the Republican party again

  • Guess the Episode [Medium]
  • Sorry friends, can you kindly point me to the museum?

  • Insufferable personality competition
  • What about all the other comments in this post that keep pointing out that the author of the comic is a Nazi? You really seem not to care about that detail

  • Not having search results in duckduckgo
  • Yes. Others have already explained why in the comments, so I’ll just leave the website for all public instances of SearXNG as alternative instead

  • FBI Arrests Man For Generating AI Child Sexual Abuse Imagery
  • This mentality smells of "just say no" for drugs or "just don't have sex" for abortions. This is not the ideal world and we have to find actual plans/solutions to deal with the situation. We can't just cover our ears and hope people will stop

  • Therapy
  • That is a hobby. A lovely one, but still a hobby. That is not therapy.

    I'm not saying you can't gain insights into yourself or situations while doing that. It can most definitely help and be therapeutic. But therapy it is not

  • Has anyone else noticed a large influx of Trolls lately?
  • While I do absolutely agree that single issue politics is a real thing like you showed, literally the only reply to your comment was "if you are a single issue voter, you're an idiot".

    So I also think OP has a point here and we're talking more about the people who use the term as an ad hominem attack, which I certainly have seen plenty of. And now Lemmy has provided us with yet another example of people taking something legitimate and turning it into a weakness/attackable offence. Like some trolls and racist people on the right now talk about DEI in negative terms

  • no wait he has a point
  • I'm not so sure. That smells a bit of entitlement if I'm being honest. If an unhoused person or a single parent in a food insecure household get food assistance/school meals for example, I'm sure the help meant a lot to them. It doesn't seem like it means anything to you because you have the luxury/security to worry about ethics and other more abstract things. But if you're hungry, food is food. Help is help. And if you were forced to give the food...those people still get to eat at the end of it all

  • Guess the Episode [Easy]
  • 🎵 For he is an English man.

    He remains an EeeèeéeeeeěengliiiiiÌÌÌÏÏÏÍÍÍsh...


  • is there Google lens alternative?
  • I personally use OSS Document Scanner.

    It has different dictionaries, can scan docs/papers and archive them. Can also translate and extract text (to an extent). It works great for my needs, hopefully it is what you were looking for too

  • The ole switcharoo
  • By the same logic, if I were to show you a photo of a child kissing a puppy, you'd be able to "demonstrate" that all humans are children and essentially loving and caring creatures? That logic is not logic-ing, friend

  • Guess the Episode [Hard]
  • Cheese!

    (Is the episode "The Trouble with Trillions"?)

  • Guess the Episode [Genius at Work]
  • Homer, before we continue our tour, would you mind hanging my coat up on the wall please?

  • 10 inventions of the Industrial Revolution which shaped the future Top 10 Inventions of the Industrial Revolution

    The British Industrial Revolution transformed life at work and at home for practically everyone. Noise, pollution, social upheaval, and repetitive jobs were the price to pay for labour-saving machines...

    Top 10 Inventions of the Industrial Revolution

    Looking back at the 1st Industrial Revolution, do you feel like we are also going through a new Digital Revolution considering new technologies like AI, Virtual Reality, 3D printing etc?


    Brief history of Puerto Rico

    Since this weekly discussion theme is about Puerto Rico (and I didn't know much about it lol) here's an early chronological summary provided by the Center for Puerto Rican Studies. I'd strongly recommend having a look at their website too because they have a lot of additional resources
