Someone has self-immolated in the protest area outside the courthouse. No clear motive. The fire was put out and they were taken away on a stretcher, no word on condition.

Man was from Florida, at time of comment is alive in critical condition. His family did not know he had traveled to New York.

Can we have a little bit more tact? He is a human being, and that kind if rhetoric is not helpful in any way.

It's kinda crazy to think about, as a kid twenty some years ago I used to run around with friends up and down the street with you guns in our hands and we never got the cops called on us. We were white, of course.

But apparently you want to give the cop the death penalty for shooting someone in the hand

Yo I'm gonna need a citation on this one fam

I genuinely thought you were joking but no, that was a real quote.

Even if that's true, it doesn't change the point the bottom image is making.

Eh not really the last 15 minutes, more like the second half.

Some of these are debatable, just went through my collection and considered the ones that I remember having an exciting end.

Akira, Burn After Reading, Children of Men, Chronicle, The Departed, The Room (unironically), Smile (maybe? The whole movie is kind of building anxiety attack), There Will Be Blood

FYI, it's "lede"

Yes, and this was that very specific meaning and was used in the context of journalism.

Never heard of him. Jack O'Neill on the other hand...

Nearly six months after actor Danny Masterson was convicted of sexually assaulting two fellow members of the Church of Scientology, lawyers for his victims filed a document that contained a stunning new allegation against the faith....

stunning new allegation

Anyone who knows anything about the history of religion is not stunned by this news.

Amazon Ditches 'Just Walk Out' Checkouts at Its Grocery Stores (gizmodo.com)

Amazon is phasing out its checkout-less grocery stores with “Just Walk Out” technology, first reported by The Information Tuesday. The company’s senior vice president of grocery stores says they’re moving away from Just Walk Out, which relied on cameras and sensors to track what people were leaving the store with.

I'm not an expert but uh, I don't think this had anything to do with AI. It was just a scanner in a basket.

Sounds like it was primarily watched by people in India.

Nah, it'll be on purpose.

It's not ironic nor unexpected to anyone that's paid the smallest amount of attention to the news in the past eight years.

Fun fact but it's actually a pretty recent thing for the language in the first place. While first done in the 1700's iirc, there are Spanish language publications that didn't follow the punctuation rules as recently as the 1900's.

With discord planning to show ads, how can the fediverse/lemmy benefit from another proprietary program making itself worse? (Like it was with reddit)

Do you think that the fediverse has something to gain with the enshitfication of discord? Are there voice chat programs in the fediverse that can benefit from it?

iAmTheTot,
@iAmTheTot@kbin.social avatar

This will be an unpopular opinion here, but Discord is worth paying for and I do. Obviously, everyone's usage will differ, but I use it for video and voice chat for several hours a week and I can count on one hand the number of hours that have been disrupted by discord service outage. That kind of value is worth paying for imho.

iAmTheTot,
@iAmTheTot@kbin.social avatar

What decisions have impacted your ability to use the service? I'm not keen on all of the choices they've made, but they also don't negatively impact the way that discord serves me.

iAmTheTot,
@iAmTheTot@kbin.social avatar

I didn't mind the mobile UI update, it had some kinks at first that I mostly think have been worked out. So some of these kinds of things will just be difference of taste.

Wow that has not been my experience thankfully, but I can definitely understand being upset by that, especially the fold stuff.

I advocate for voting with your wallet.
